BE31: A Part or Apart

We all wonder during slow times,
Or at least I know I do… if I have done enough –
Those who are close can let us know by allowing us in their life.
And that… is, could be, should be… enough –
Yet for those who are further, the distance is like a maze;
Each twist and turn takes us further – and our efforts seem, not enough –
How whole can we be when our reach, our grasp, our hopes
Seem like never enough?

remembering that
an unbroken circle ‘is’
has to be ‘enough’

Wholeness

We are all connected in the unbroken circle of life.

BE30: Receptive Reel

find the time dusk or dawn
include an interlude, let drift any alibi
forego excuses, go in between
the reality of thought, focus your third eye;
yearn …yen for the true you…

senses allow us
to gain perspective when the
sun kisses our face

Grounding

When life overwhelms us, it is time to get outside and
touch the earth to ground ourselves, reestablishing our
essential unity with nature.

BE29: conscious

thankful of home, food
family; the expression
of symbols to words

exploration of nature;
freedom to use the senses

five or six of them
flitting between electric
pathways in the brain

Gratitude

When we are grateful for the many blessings in our life,
angels send us more of them.

Growth

Our personal growth parallels the seasons.

BE27: Whether, Well Played

each drop of rain is
welcome – almost strangers here
most of the summer

yet our grass was green, plants grew
not quite drought – or dessert here

healing for ten hours;
mostly gentle – there is time
to focus within

Focus

Focus and clarity comes from the practice of being
one-pointed in your attention.

BE26: Canna Can Do

With the frost warning in the forecast,
he suggested I bring in the potted Canna Lily.
I opened the door, and brought the plant, as tall as myself –
still with orange flowers still blooming and budding from
the previous weeks heat; into my home – my heart –
I might bring ‘her’ up to the bay window until all the
Canna flowers have finally faded…

When the day warms up just a tad; it was 29 F at seven –
I will have to open the ground and retrieve the rhizomes
of the grounded red Canna…and hope that I can save them.
And remember to plant them where they will get more sun…
I did open their pods and retrieve some bead seeds –
Though I have yet to split a seed to attempt to grow it.
Treasured gifts these flowers from a wonderful friend…

frost blooms open in
autumn’s October morning;
miracles unfold

Openness

When we open ourselves up to the truth, we show real fath –
and then miracles can happen.

BE25: Captivating View

There is a slightly hilly section that I sometimes stroll –
There are no sidewalks and the mature trees on either
side of the road give a forested feel. The road is used,
but hardly a thoroughfare so there is a about a mile and
a half of – or about a half an hour that I can concentrate
on the sounds rustling in the flora and fauna.

Enchantment

We are enchanted and enchanting when we appreciate all
of life’s miracles, big and small, and share our sense of awe
and wonder with those we care about.

These may be what I saw… but mushroom identification for me is at best a guess.
The link is its own enchantment with the variety of mushrooms displayed.
Warning: Many wild mushrooms are inedible.
