A Moment with Stephen Mitchell
Here's a small poem of his that is something to think about on a busy day. I understand that Parables and Portraits is out of print, or at least, difficult to find. A used copy is worth seeking out.
Blessed are the poor in spirit,
who realize that they have no more
than what is their own. They stand
tiptoe in the bright kingdom
of the moment, like children looking
down from the bedroom window,
waving hello, goodbye.
