Set Aside

DSCN0709Set aside the first part of the day
To promise
In response to the gift of the sun rising
To promise
In response to the first breath of the day
The stretching of the body
Before the day stretches on
Carries you away, body mind and spirit
Set aside
To remember
The wonder of the sunrise
The spirit of your breath
The wisdom gained from experience
Set aside the intention to
Hold your ground
Not the ground that shifts and moves
That breaths and lives
The ground that changes to allow forgiveness
Hold your ground
The earth that your heart is made from
The stone that supports you
Set aside your intention
To say no
When no is necessary to free you from harm
