Being A Blessing with poem "At My Window", by Mark Nepo
Enjoy this moment of self care as Julie Potiker leads you through this guided meditation. She completes the meditation with a reading of the poem, At My Window", by Mark Nepo."
At the Window, By Mark Nepo
I was at the window
when a fly near the latch
was on its back spinning —
legs furious, going nowhere.
I thought to swat it
but something in its struggle
was too much my own.
It kept spinning and began to tire.
Without moving closer, I exhaled
steadily, my breath a sudden wind,
and the fly found its legs,
rubbed its face
and flew away.
I continued to stare at the latch
hoping that someday, the breath
of something incomprehensible
would right me and
enable me to fly.
