This Day

Today I need green
to look upon
to gather strength,
and courage to reach any length
to go beyond
what 'seems to be'
and find flexibility in my view
of how things are
and how things 'sit'
to meet and knit in the centre.

So there we are
and if you look
the violets grow
beside the brook.
The water dwells in the well
so emotionally
all will flow if we
stay perfectly still
to call in the higher power.

Follow On

The shortest journey
is to follow your heart.

Remember Me

The Sweet pea
 delicacy and departure.
"Plant Lore" by Josephine Addison
"Here are sweet peas on tip toe for a flight
with wings of gently flush
o'er delicate white"
John Keats (1795-1821)


My greatest joy is following
my highest potential....

Seeing Beauty along the way

 gifts from nature

Hearing answers
Reading signs

So just keep going
further along the road
where there
 will be a mossy knoll
 to rest upon and know

Openness is all around....
We are safe and sound.
Bearded Iris

Standing Tall

How heartening to see
you lighting the way
through my local bushland
on this misty day.

How grateful I am
to the 'standing ones'
being there
for me to sit beside.

I listen
and in your strength
I hear Faith calling.

Reach high, grow tall
stand strong
and appreciate every bird song.

Silently one by one
in the infinite 
meadows of heaven
blossomed the lovely stars,
the forget-me-nots of the angels.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow -
