The Day Belongs to Faith & God
Feb 12, 2001

By Peter Menkin, Obl Cam OSB

This morning’s rain and rising
for a short walk
allowing the day then to belong

to my life and many lives in faith.
A lightening of affliction,
a respite to pain and sorrow,
a living in the body,

along the way to breathe clean air
and know mortality
during time spent on the path;

come back
to me my sanity of rightness
giving in
to the many colors of pain and weakness:
