For being mindful of what we are given.
For those who remain grateful in the face of everything.
For individual speech that becomes speech shared.
For those who pay attention.
For the comrades of the heart who left us signposts.
For ourselves who may take discipline to heart, and not resent it.
For those who know that half of poetry is silence.
For those who wake to light, and know the depths of sacrament.
For those who remember that "so be it" is also written. Amen.
