We have been choosing a theme every month for our Giants & Pilgrims “Almanac”. We’re hoping the pages we’re posting each around these themes enliven your season, enrich your days and bring focus to where you’re at in the month. It’s been doing that for Betony and I.
May’s theme is “prize”. For us, it always feels like May is a big push of business before the season of summer hits. It’s good to know what you’re racing for; keeping your mind on the prize… Here’s a poem fleshing out those ideas in broad, not-too-obvious ways.
May is a finish line
The last push for the work in the fields,
tired hands planting the final seeds
So the school year has closure
the wedding planning is about done
the spring season brings
projects to an end
and people look to summer traveling
Because go, go, go is best followed with
and a sense of completion,
a Voice that says job well done,
and permission to breathe deeply
