Remember your deepest name: Naomi Shihab Nye



Japanese teacher says:
At first light, rise.
Don’t hover between
sleep and waking,
this makes you heavy,
puts a stone inside your heart.

The minute you drift back to shore,
anchor. Breathe.
Remember your deepest name.

Naomi Shihab Nye
from Breaking the Fast
