A Poem for Today


by Molly Frederick

With open hands, I wait. For no

Prolonged each moment, then the

And the next.

No one told me it would take so

Until it comes to me,

That this is
just a kind of reaching —

Like a daffodil tilting toward a
slow silent sweep of sunlight

While day progresses.

rich, and succulent.

All this waiting.

In a letter, Molly wrote this,

For me, writing poetry  – which I’ve done for many decades  – is about seeing what’s really there.
I look for places where the Universe steps through.
Then I work with words to recapture the experience, for myself and also for others. Nature is often the subject, and every answer leaves me with a question.
I find that fascinating.

    Thank you, once again, Brian Luke Seaward for giving to us the miracle of healing through prayer. This story one of many! My own story of healing my breast cancer, through the unity of both Science and Spirit, brings me to my humble knees of Grace, the Love, I do believe, is the creative fire and power running through us all! Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, in his theory, We are evolving towards this unity to know fire for a second understanding as Divine Love!
