Poem – This Holy Moment

Hello! Tonight my heart is happy because I spent the day with people I love very dearly from all corners of my world. I highly recommend social interaction – zoom or in-person. 😀 Being alone for too long is never a good thing, and seeking out relationship is such a worthwhile endeavour. So set up that zoom chat or facetime call, go find a person to eat dinner with or just sit in silence doing homework together – I promise it’ll be worth it. 😉

Today’s poem is slightly along those lines… The lines about relationships being worthwhile, that is. We humans are deeply relational – there’s no getting around it. And what power is within human contact and relationship. It’s one of the most influential and beautiful things I’ve had the privilege of witnessing, and it never grows old. So here’s a poem I wrote on those themes. I hope you enjoy! 🙂


I saw you smile yesterday,

grim lines cracking and melting

into quiet, trembling joy around your mouth


I watched you touch the drowsy child’s head

for just a moment; like a priest offering

a blessing, soft and strong.


I could almost see the violet tassels swaying at your sides,

sun-kissed marigolds in a plastic pitcher

singing alleluia on the table.


Where have you seen the power of human relationship recently? I’d love to hear your thoughts on that and this poem in the comments!
