On Being

I am a little late. This was originally posted as a seque to 2016, but John O’Donohue’s poetry works for any time of the year.

Wildflower Women

Blessings for the New Year! The words of John O’Donohue are so beautiful to bring us into the new year.  To hear the full poem as read by John, please click on the above link.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow
Wind work these words
Of love around you,
An invisible cloak
To mind your life.

About ivonprefontaine

I am a retired educator who recently completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. My dissertation topic and research was how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. A beautiful poem suitable for anybody Ivon. Thank you. Apologies,I just found myself spelling your name Ifon because in Welsh the single F is pronounced V and I’m afraid in the past I may have done so unconsciously.
    Hugs
