An Honorable Meeting

Image source:

As this day comes to a close
I’m sitting with something
Something that truly is inside me so
I just want to sit with it
Be with it, no fuss
Just me and my presence
Slowly finding our way to each other
We bow to greet
Honoring the moment feels right to me
Like two warriors prepare for battle
Sit down, take a moment of silence
Rest their blades on the table
Pray to God
Raise their weary eyes and meet
In the not knowing
With all of their hearts
