Blessing for a Poet

February 6, 2011

Your poem
is not simply about the words you choose
or even the words that choose you.
It is about being
the way you are —
sometimes without rhyme or reason
but always with integrity and passion.
May the Maker bless
all you are making of your life,
as you discover that of God in you.

– Jan Sutch Pickard, in A Book of Blessings and How to Write Your Own by Ruth Burgess
