Meditation on my Emptiness

An emptiness waits for me in the light
For I have been so filled
This gift of emptiness reminds me
Not to hurry from the days of sharing and delight
Into the rote and rhythm of the every day.
I realise the emptiness is not empty
It overflows, with an abundance of memory and joy
It is an emptiness into which I can pour
The full vessel of my emotions
Love and loss,
Love and hope,
Love and beginning,
Love and ending,
Love and……
And then tomorrow, and tomorrow
Can come as they will come
And winds of change will blow
There will be highs and lows
But here, now, I will hold this precious emptiness
In the light
That is ever blessed and ever blessing.
