Winter Dance

Winter is finally here.  The trees are dancing with joy on this exuberant windy winter day. The leaves are dancing across the road like ecstatic ballerinas in wild abandon.  Mother nature has put her hand to broom sweeping her fall leaves to the earth floor to warm her Terra Firma soul and feed the hungry roots below.  Little squirrels are scurrying and racing around like turbo charged fur balls.  What a beautiful chilly day.

Observation in Miracles

Yesterday I made a most touching discovery.  Just by the water faucet there was this little tree  seedling growing up from the ground.. it was about 6″ high with the prettiest leaves.  I was worried that it might get stepped on there by the faucet so I transplanted it into a pot.

It was so amazing to me that the leaves were so big and healthy and the stem was so strong.. the seed itself from whence it came was just laying on top of the soil..  and the root did not have sufficient room to grow into a strong healthy root…but instead of shriveling up,  that little being put forth its finest effort into growing the most beautiful amazing leaves and stem… It was those beautiful leaves that I noticed there by the faucet.. and it was those amazing  leaves that  called out to me.

This whole experience gave me a lot to contemplate regarding the nature of communication.  The whole of communication involves so much more than voice or motion.  There are vast unknown aspects of communication that we have yet to discover within our inward frontiers.  Plants talk to us with motion and color and scent.  They have a lot to say if we but listen.

 

 

Unseen Worlds

The Fairy Glen

Unseen Worlds

On trade winds of time they travel by light
Their voices float on sound-lit beams
They fly just past our muted sight
On prism blessed transparent wings

A voice as soft as a fledgling dove
Breath as sweet as an angels love.

If sought with mortal eyes

They are masters of disguise
And  forever will they elude
For only with the  heart and soul
May the fairy world be viewed.

Once you’ve seen the fairy realm
You’ll never disbelieve
The stories told in ancient times
Of kingdoms once perceived.

Be faithful to the mighty oak 
For there in lies the portal
Most grand and wise of ancient trees
A hope for every mortal

So sad for those who can not see
A life of toil and fears
The magic warmth of  fairy lights
Shall never dry their tears

On the day when realms collide
We’ll see a new sunrise
And realities unseen to us

Will appear before our  eyes

Autumn Equinox 2015 September 23

Blessings to all on this day of the Autumn Equinox.  Nature, always in perfect balance,  will continue to delight us with a show of warm  colors to soften the chilly nights and shortened days as she continues her dance toward the Winter Solstice.  She is turning  inward for a bit of reflective time.  But don’t be fooled,  she is ever alive and her work has only gone underground.

The sublime cycle of Life

In the sublime beauty and perfection that we observe in nature,  are found traces of the true sense of Life.   Perfection, brilliant symmetry, colorful and vibrant!  How muted our sense and how dim our view has become.  At this time of year,  as the leaves begin falling, let us remember the divinity within ourselves and all of nature.  In the beauty of holiness shall each leaf charm its color wheel.

Autumn sign posts

Honey the cat is bringing fallen leaves into the house.  Oak and Mulberry.  Autumn is in the air.  Seems too early to find golden yellow leaves on the ground.  But the sap is retreating back into the tree trunk and maybe even down to the roots, who knows?  I picture subterranean nature spirits waiting for its arrival each autumn.  They have a huge tree sap festival and make elfin beer with it.

Sorry  I’m new to WordPress still learning how to use the tools at hand.

Nature pics will be forthcoming.
