The Time To Be Slow by John O’Donohue

Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light...

The Time To Be Slow by John O’Donohue

The Time To Be Slow by John O’Donohue, from A Blessing for the Breakup of a Relationship.
Seeds of Hope — Day 10 (29th March, 2020)

This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.
Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.
If you remain generous,
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning.
