BEING BORN AGAIN, AGAIN

WHEN I AWOKE THIS MORNING, I FELT ALIVE…  STRETCHED THE KINKS OUT AND GOT UP AND WENT TO THE BATHROOM…WENT TO THE KITCHEN SINK AND GRABBED THE EDGE WITH BOTH HANDS…WENT UP ON MY TOES, STRAIGHT-ARMED, ARCHED MY WHOLE BODY INTO A PERFECT BACK BOW…SLOWLY STRAIGHTENED UPRIGHT, STILL ON MY  TOES, ARMS STILL STRAIGHT, SLOWLY BOWED FORWARD WHILE LETTING MY KNEES BEND WHILE SLOWLY SINKING TO THE FLOOR, ARMS STILL STRAIGHT UNTIL BUTT TOUCHES FLOOR…THEN LET MY HEELS COME DOWN TO THE FLOOR, AND EXCEPT FOR THE GRIP OF MY HANDS, RELAXED TOTALLY…DELICIOUS BITE OF LIVING…THEN  PULL MYSELF UPRIGHT WITH MY ARMS…KNEES LOOSE, SPINE STRAIGHT, CHIN LEVEL, HEAD BALANCED OVER HIPS…TURN AND WALK TO THE BACK DOOR, OPEN AND CHECK THAT THE SCREEN DOOR IS LATCHED…TURN BACK UNTIL FACING THE FRONT DOOR THROUGH KITCHEN AND WORKSHOP… NOW THE LONG, SLOW, MINDFUL, FLOWING WALK TO THE FRONT…

FRONT DOOR OPENS ON WETNESS AND A CRISP BREEZE RIFFLING THE D#MINOR9 CHIMES SOFTLY AS I BACK SLOWLY TO THE CENTER OF THE ROOM… I STAND RELAXED AWAITING THE SUN…ALMOST WEIGHTLESS, TIMELESS IN WAITING…FAR IN THE BACK OF MY MIND COMES…PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSING FLOW…PRAISE HIM ALL CREATURES HERE BELOW…PRAISE HIM ABOVE YE HEAVENLY  HOSTS…PRAISE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST…LIGHT STRIATIONS OF CLOUD, TINGED YELLOW… I SEE YOU AS YOU ARE; NOW SEE ME AS I AM…A RAY OF ORANGE IN BROADENING YELLOW…SIGHT BLURS, HEART FULL, BEATING, BEATING…NO TIME, NO TIME, HARDLY BREATHING…DENSE BEVY OF SMALL BIRDS SPRAY OUT LIKE A FOUNTAIN AS THE FIERY RING  BREACHES THE LAST BARRIER AND  MAKES DAY... I AM BATHED IN MORNING’S GLORY- A RAIMENT WEIGHTLESS WITH SHINE…FEELING MY SHADOW FLEE BACK FROM MY HEELS…GLORY, GLORY, GLORY,  GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY! LET ME FEEL THY SPIRIT PRESENCE ALL THE DAY LONG. REJOICE, REJOICE, MY HEART, MY SAVIOR IS HERE…..”THE WIND HOVERING OVER THE WATER” CREATION, THE INVISIBLE MOVING THE VISIBLE, A BAPTISM INTO A NEW LIFE…THERE IS A WETNESS ON MY HEAD AND THE WORLD IS PUDDLE WONDERFUL  AND THE LITTLE BIRDS MAKE JOYFUL PEEPS… AND ALL THE DAY MY HEART WILL BE HAPPY AS I WORK…BLESS ALL THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE YOU HAVE BROUGHT INTO MY LIFE; BRING COMFORT TO ALL WHO SORROW OR FRET FOR LOVED ONES; BRING SERENITY TO THOSE WHO FEAR OR RAGE AT THE CHAOS OF OUR TIMES; LET ALL REMEMBER THY PERFECT PROVISION AND TRUST THE MEETING OF ALL THEIR NEEDS; THY PEACE AND PROTECTION HOVER OVER ALL AND SHEPHERD US TO STILL WATER…WE THANK THEE FOR THE GRACE OF THY REALITY, SUFFICIENT UNTO THE DAY.
