This is a beautiful poem and prayer to begin the day. Even when we are not outside, we can close our eyes and experience the world in mindfulness and prayerful positions.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. Unless you get to any of the very few reaming public beaches in Miami very early morning there will be no silence and the sweet whisper of the gulls and lap of wave at the shore line. Then come the blasting radios and boom boxes. What is wrong with these people? Don’t they get it? The day is supposed to be a respite from the city.

  2. Ivon, such a wonderful poem my brother…thanks for sharing…it is such a delight to read!
