Sweet Little Periwinkle

I found a little flower
with a lovely song to sing
and graciously it smiled to me
and there was everything
the light 
the blue
the seeing you
the shining face
the simple shape
the turning wheel
the healing green
as beautiful as ever seen

Your Inner Garden

waters your inner garden
so all the hidden bulbs flower
with bright new life.
These are for you xxx

Before The Autumn Leaves

I thought I saw
the royal blue sky
a day to die,
leaving from home in perfect time.

My home space was the best outlook,
soon a room
without a view,
certainly shall miss you
as silently I farewell this place,
depart all past and reach for Grace.......

I take nothing with me

I take no thing with me
I will be nothing then
no thing will matter
I will be an empty vessel
less all
I ever loved and nurtured,
I will take the normann vase at best
one winter scarf,
not my bed
but a beanie for my head.

My heart will not come with me

I will 'die'
before I die
I will stay and never leave
I will weep myself to sleep
like I did the night before,
no new outlooks I need explore.

Call me please and I will come
let me leave
and go
before the autumn leaves

Blessings Peace and Beauty, Love Always

Zen master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh
"I have seen an old, untended garden,
where the cherry and peach trees
still bloom wonderfully
and always in time."
