    Mormon Poetry #17 Reid Baer: I Awake Thinking Of Jesus

    On A Good Day
    By Reid Baer

    I awake thinking of Jesus
    this morning meditating in
    a kind of grateful prayer pausing
    before the chores motivate me
    to action and so I allow
    myself a moment to ponder,
    to remember the Perfect Man
    who is like none other – a God.
    I fix my muddled mind on His
    crystalline light and my heart fills
    with direct hope despite my own
    imperfections I sense a guide
    nearby showing me better paths
    by way of the Holy Spirit’s
    heavenly inspirations through
    today’s earthly expectations.
