Love Letters

Everyday the world offers love letters:
Today, a soft blush across the horizon at dawn
Wind-blown leaves hurtling across a bright blue sky
Strangers laughing together, chasing new apples
spilling out of a grocery bag onto the busy sidewalk
Everyday the world offers love letters
If we can pause to receive them
They will sustain our hearts.
If, in our pain or our rushing, we cannot
It is not held against us. No one is keeping score.
Tomorrow new love letters will arrive.

Karen Davis at Open Door Dreaming does a wonderful job of passing along the love letters- like this one- offered at dawn and dusk.


  1. Thank you, Oriah. The last sentence is the best: I cannot make a mistake. I'm cared for, even if today I can't accept it. Thank you for this reassurance. So comforting.

  3. So very true. So often forgotten. Thank you. So very needed.

    1. Lynda, thank you for commenting. I removed the comment that seemed to be a repeat, incomplete. Hope that was okay.
