Even as we harvest
the fruits of our endeavors,

as the leaves of summer
give over to golden dreams

and light reaches through
gathering clouds, illuminating,

celebrating; we must not forget
that we are a part of this living

miracle, that our lives, in harmony
with Nature, deserve reverence.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. What a beautiful thought — that our lives are a small part of this miracle we call Nature, and therefore deserve reverence. This one really struck me, V.J. Just gorgeous.

  2. Lovely, and what a soothing image – wish I could sit beside one of those hay bales and look out at that lake view for a few hours – no, maybe a few days! Time to let my inner rhythms fall back into harmony with nature.
    Thanks – this starts my day beautifully.
