Bloom where you are planted…

“Bloom where you are planted!”
-Saint Francis de Sales

Flowers don’t grow
weary,
they rise up
with the sun
spending their days frolicking 
hardly overcome!
And when the seasons change
they rest for a while,
till the next time
you see them
glowing undefiled…
They festoon
our gardens
in worshipful praise,
with carefree abandonment, brightening our days…
Blossoming
where they are planted,
an uncomplaining bunch,
basking
in the nourishment
of waterlogged mulch…

Snapshots…

“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.”
― Maya Angelou

snapshots

Snapshots
of carefree days,
sunflowers in bright array,
resuscitating
downcast moods,
in contemplative interludes…

gratitude expressed
in words,
sometimes chirped
by early birds,
in brief moments, the unhurried muse,
gently bequeaths
breathtaking views…

Nature’s tongue…

“Heaven is a state of mind, not a location.”
― Wayne Dyer

my own self worth

In quiet spaces where radiance shines,
intoxicating essence
is naturally
designed…

I step a little closer
and my image
becomes,
enthralled in the dialect
of Nature’s tongue…

I speak the language of this sacred Earth,
finding treasure,
in my own
self-worth…

Blue skies…

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”
― Eleanora Duse

blue skies

I’m taking time
to find my way
amid the noise
and decay…
to know the silence of just being…
and flourish
into deeper meaning.

Transmuted by divine light
to find myself
with cosmic sight.
believing again
with
mystical eyes,
each moment of grace supplied…
