The Simple “Yes”


O Divine Spirit,
trustworthy and infinitely wise,
in these my twilight years,
ignite within me
a passionate longing
for the profound power,
beauty, and grace
of nature’s simple “yes.”

  1. Hi Dennis, I’ve been following for a little while now, and find your quotes to be lovely morning reminders. This one however I would change. I find it more powerful if I leave out the words “a passionate longing for “. Reading it this way I fall into the “yes”. Thank you.
