Reading Practice

As I read the news this year,

I’ll practice breathing in and breathing out,

opening myself to all that’s there,

remembering the humanity we all share.

It won’t be easy, I confess,

but I will do my very best,

and if, in time, compassion comes,

I’ll offer thanks for heart’s wisdom.
