By Peter Menkin, Obl Cam OSB
This morning's rain and rising
for a short walk
allowing the day then to belong
to my life and many lives in faith.
A lightening of affliction,
a respite to pain and sorrow,
a living in the body,
along the way to breathe clean air
and know mortality
during time spent on the path;
to me my sanity of rightness
to the many colors of pain and weakness:
Peter Menkin, an aspiring poet, lives in Mill Valley, CA USA where he writes poetry. He is an Oblate of Immaculate Heart Hermitage, Big Sur, CA and that means he is a Camaldoli Benedictine. He is 64 years of age as of 2010.
