|Hello Dear Ones-
Happy Earth Day! In honor of this special day I am sharing with you the writings of poets David Wagoner and Gregory Orr. In the poem Lost Wagoner beckons us to still our busy selves in order to be in the sacred space of the present and to allow ourselves to be immersed in the natural world. If you were to become so quiet and attentive, do you suppose that your soulful senses would hear the breath of the forest, and recognize the distinctive beauty of each tree?
I am warmed by Orr’s mention of beloved elements of nature (the moon, in this case) that faithfully return each day to us, patiently awaiting our engagement… dancing waves, gentle breezes, outstretched tree limbs… ever-inviting.
I am grateful for this patience, and for these reminders of what lies at the heart of our Earthly experience.
May your Earth Day filled with noticed blessings!
