On New Year’s Day, I asked my friends on Facebook and Instragram a question:
What is one word you would use to symbolize a wish you have for 2020?
I composed the poem below with the words that people shared. The “wish words” are capitalized. I added a few connectors. When the same word was offered by more than one person, I used the word only once.
I invite you to read it out loud in your own voice to see what resonates with you and to amplify this wish for all of us.
I rise from Sleep with Hope,
as the Brilliance of morning Light emits Calm—
there are No Storms on the Horizon.
A Childlike Joy fills me with
and Reconnection with the Intention
of my Authentic Presence.
Delight in the Possibility of Enchantment.
I Groove Forward in Alignment with my Dreams.
Discipline, Patience, Acceptance,
and Gratitude for the Flow of Life
allow the Generosity of Love
to Illuminate the
Connection, Harmony, Reciprocity, and Health,
Included and Embodied in Wholeness.
I Purge that which blocks
Progress, Healing, Peace, and Positivity,
cultivating Mindfulness, Simplicity,
and Ease With Myself And Others.
What could Bloom in the Fulfillment of this wish
if not Contentment, Kindness, and Love For All?
