The Art of Blessing the DayThis is the blessing for rain after drought:Come down, wash air so it shimmers,Let parched leaves suckly and swellIn the morning the world is peeled to shiningThis is the blessing for sun after Long Rain:Now everything shakes itself free and rises.The bees dance and roll in pollen,And the cardinal at the top of the pine sings at full throttle, fountaining.This is the blessing for a ripe peach: This is luck made round.It can drop a hard green useless nut, and wind can crush it on the ground,Yet this peach fills my mouth with juicy sun.This is the blessing for a political victory: Although I shall not forget that things work in increments and sometime leaps that half the time fall back down.Let’s not relinquish dancing while the music bounces in our heelsWe must never forget, pleasure is as real as pain.This is the blessing for the return of a favorite cat, the blessing for love returned, for friends’ return, for money received unexpectedly, the blessing for th

, the blessing for the rising of the bread, the sun, the oppressed. I am not sentimental about old men mumbling the Hebrew by rote with no more feeling than one says gesundheit.But the discipline of blessings is to taste each moment-the bitter, the sour, the sweet and the salty, and be glad for what does not hurt. The art is in compressing attention to each little and big blossom of the tree of life, to let the tongue sing each fruit, it’s savor, its aroma, and its use.Attention is love, what we must give children, mothers, fathers, pets, our friends, the news, the woes of others. What we want to change we curse-and then pick up a tool.Bless whatever you can with eyes, and hands and tongue. If you can’t bless it, get ready to make it new
