What A Way To Start The Day

If you would celebrate life,
put away the noisemakers
and greet the quiet
with your own.
Pause when she throws
a sudden banquet in the sky.
Catch every crumb of joy
that falls from her table--
a smile, a word, a leaf.
Wait while the shadows deepen
or linger while the light rises,
offering up the one gift
that is everywhere and always
the same and the secret--
your grateful silence.
