Inspiration 7/17 By David Whyte

I have been given a book to read by a friend about being motivated in work and in our lives.

I am going to share some of the thoughts and quotes from it for the next several days.


Faith
By David Whyte

I want to write about faith
about the way the moon rises
over cold snow, night after night

faithful even as it fades from fullness
slowly becoming that last curving and impossible
sliver of light before the final darkness
but I have no faith myself
I refuse to give it the smallest entry

Let this then, my small poem,
like a new moon, slender and barely open,
be the first prayer that opens me to faith
