Daily Meditation: Carefree Heart

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a poem by 19th century Irish author Oscar Wilde. "Les Silhouettes" is a beautiful reminder to us all to cultivate joy and a carefree heart.

Les Silhouettes by Oscar Wilde

The sea is flecked with bars of grey
The dull dead wind is out of tune,
And like a withered leaf the moon
Is blown across the stormy bay.

Etched clear upon the pallid sand 
The black boat lies: a sailor boy
Clambers aboard in careless joy
With laughing face and gleaming hand.

And overhead the curlews cry,
Where through the dusky upland grass 
The young brown-throated reapers pass,
Like silhouettes against the sky.
