Wear today well

You take your time like choosing a fine wine.
What color?
What flavor?
What year?

You draw near even in the face of fear.
What courage.
What gusto.
What gear.

You give more than I can ignore.
What grace.
What wisdom.
What light.

Harvest has come and I'm left undone in fields weary from worry and strife.
The storehouse is closed, bails loaded - brows bowed.
The work of the day is worn like old clothes.

Bring rest in the day and refreshment along the way.
Dig a soul well deep in ebb or flow.

Create something sweet from each challenge we meet.
Store it in the heart cellar for a cold rainy day -
like today.
