A Morning Offering ~ John O’Donohue


sunrise (1)May you find inspiration in these words by Irish poet and philosopher John O’Donohue and these photos captured by me, as I woke while all were asleep, took a walk and sat above the ocean, and awaited the Sun’s rising.sunrise (2)

John O’Donohue expressed Celtic wisdom and spirituality through his grasp of its imagination that wove the visible and invisible through the human experience. He’s beloved for his book “Anam Cara” – Gaelic for soul friend.sunrise (3).jpg

I wear “Anam Cara” in both Gaelic and Celtic Ogham Tree Alphabet on my right inner forearm for my beloved twin soul Nestor.sunrise (4)

The visible and invisible entwined and reflected in the seeds of this new day with opportunity to arise and create the dream.sunrise (5)

A Morning Offering

I bless the night that nourished my heart
To set the ghosts of longing free
Into the flow and figure of dream
That went to harvest from the dark
Bread for the hunger no one sees.sunrise (6)

All that is eternal in me
Welcome the wonder of this day,
The field of brightness it creates
Offering time for each thing
To arise and illuminate.sunrise (7)

I place on the altar of dawn:
The quiet loyalty of breath,
The tent of thought where I shelter,
Wave of desire I am shore to
And all beauty drawn to the eye.sunrise (8)

May my mind come alive today
To the invisible geography
That invites me to new frontiers,
To break the dead shell of yesterdays,
To risk being disturbed and changed.sunrise (9)

May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.

  1. Hi!
    I was just wondering have you found the exakt “translatipn” fot Anam cara in the Celtic ogham tree alphaet? I’ve wanted to do IT for a while but i keep getting different ones. Maybe you could help me?

  2. hi valeria…here is a link to the celtic ogham tree alphabet: http://www.ancient-wisdom.com/treelore.htm. when writing with the tree alphabet you always start from the bottom up, not top down. and words will be created from combining each letter of the alphabet as you see at the link, one on top of the other, spaced out evenly on a straight vertical line.
