See me in that flower, and that one, too?

Turning on the Water

Water comes from high mountain sources. Water runs deep in the Earth. Miraculously, water comes to us and sustains all life. My gratitude is filled to the brim. ~Thich Nhat Hanh meditation poem from “Present Moment, Wonderful Moment”

So wonderful to relax in hot water. Heat seeping into tissues, helping ease, then release tension. Water inside grateful to the water outside for this simple, miraculous gift of well-being.

Next morning the bath water is pumped into buckets and transported out back where thirsty seeds, buds, blossoms and blooms await, patiently. Water that cleansed and restored me continues its endless cycle. As I stare into bright peddles, beholding beauty in sunlight, they seem to know me. I bow. The one who bows and the one who is bowed to both by nature are empty of separate selves. At this moment of inter-being communication between flowers and me is perfect. Sweet flower fresh moment. Deja Vu all over again.

  1. I lke a nice warm it hot water bath and too. It is very relaxing. I like to be relaxed before I create too.


    How large a Wow! should I
    need if, self-encumbered no more,
    re-enfolded within the unassuming fold,

    reintroduced to the misremembered,
    yet moved to articulate? Let me see …
    And I see daffodil, foxglove, rose, lily, lotus …

    and so on and on over the hills and far away;
    I see the job’s already competently in hand then;
    liplessly, handlessly, mindfully. So Wow! anyway.


    Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.
