a cheery yes

Saying Yes
It's all too much if you really stop to think of it.
The grace, the mystery, the blessings, the unknown.
    But stop anyway!
And grant yourself the permission you already have.
    Take one of each!  There is something
behind the starry fullness, where all appears a void.
It's where the cheery yeses come from.
The rain will start looking like showers of blessings
to you.  Washing away all but essence.
And then you'll find your own oil paints to 
potter in, mangoes to eat in wonderment
    and a nest to protect.
