She Said -
As She Opened her petals one by one .
Slowly – Languidly She Opened
To Reveal the inner most truth of whom she Is
I imagine a speech bubble above her inner core:
Like A Child Draws
Like a Child Loves
Like a Child Does
A World Within Her
Yet she is Tiny
And Blooms For just a few days .
I Find Joy and Grace in her Little words
Her Unfolding Nature
Nature Unfolds Her .
She is simple yet holds a miracle
in all her gestures
She is Born Of Earth and Air and Water
Lives – Lives – Lives
Blooms to Full capacity
and then she Fades and withers
Her Petals drop
One By One
Leaving Proof That she was here .
She said That one afternoon
When The Earth was spinning
at speed I cannot even comprehend
In My Mind
and she said more …..
“We are worlds within worlds and specks of littleness that No one can see .
But a Universe as well”
And then she added ….
“To Really Know Yourself
You have to have perspective.
You are Nothing and everything
You are Just a Heart in a Body.
The Only Thing You leave behind when You Go
is Love ….”
An Inner Dialogue with a Flower
Is a wonderful way To Spend The day …
