A Poem for Restoration

Upon last glance into my well,
I saw that the level of hope had fallen,
and too, was the bucket to bring me such blessings
a little off-line and failing.

In the midst of the rain,
no bounty would collect…
and even with my prayers it seemed soon,
there would be nothing left.

So in a moment of clarity,
my request did change…
less demand, more ask
for patience and understanding.

More openness to the many ways that blessings may come,
and more gratefulness for whatever already was.

My hope became to return to my Self,
and embrace the qualities in my core that connect me with Spirit.

To be restored through hope, gratefulness and hopefulness,
to accept the moment and live in the present.

Until one day I looked again upon my well and was surprised to see,
the level of abundance was overflowing…

The true wonder came when I realized,
that the well had seemingly been renewed before my eyes,
though nothing had been moved or rearranged,
it was my faith and perception about my state that had changed.

My view had been restored,
to pray for what I need,
but be open to what I receive,
and find in those things the wellspring of blessings…

In all ways we are restored
when we see that all that once was,
can be ours once more,
when we are open to accepting what is
and receiving so much more.
