We Are Accepting

by Michael Leunig

We loosen our grip,

We open our hand,

We are accepting.

In our empty hand

We feel the shape

Of simple eternity.

It nestles there;

We hold it gently,

We are accepting.


I am trying to. Letting it all flow. Breathing. Accepting.


The world is so heady with colours and emotions for me at the moment.

I feel like patchwork squares

are being knitted together

Into the sweetest, crazy, colourful blanket of love

My past patching with the present

I am trying not to clutch too hard to this blanket

Just let it be as it is,

covering me with its love and energy at the moment

Feeling blessed, feeling grateful

Feeling sensitive and overwhelmed.
