In the Garden

IMG-3296

In the garden there was dim light
not yet dawn light
far from daylight
in my spirit there was no light
there was darkness everywhere.

Deeper silence on the out-breath
not yet gone breath
far from in-breath
in my spirit there was no breath
there was chaos everywhere.

Then the earth turned and the leaves moved
and the light moved
and my breath moved
in a moment all the world moved
grace was flowing everywhere

I had given up on answers
broken answers
empty answers
in the letting go of answers
every thing changed, everywhere.

  1. Thank you for your kindness in visiting and sharing. Jeanne; I love your visits! We really are in a time where, whether we like it or not, we’re asked to swim through oceans of anxiety daily. Letting go is my only means of remaining buoyant at times. And just noticing where the light is.

    Be safe and well, and gentle peace to you as we wade into another week.
    xoxo,
    Kitty

    Interesting. Thoughtful. Thank you.
    And I love your photography too.

  3. Thank you so much for your kind words; they are so appreciated. I hope you are safe and well…and possibly composing/playing inspiring music? It looks like that is a gift of yours! be safe and well, and gentle peace,

  4. This is so pertinent! How our emotions spin and tip….but the light changing helps. Just loving your writing and photography, those poppies are simply stunning. I have some Himalayan ones I sowed last year, hoping they flower this year. Love and huge hugs to one and all.xxxx

  5. Ohhhh, let me know how they do. I love poppies; I have some purple and pink Hungarian coming into bloom and crazy gold California poppies, too. And they all reseed like mad.

    Thank you for your kind comments and always welcome visits. Xoxo
