So much of our existence here is spent interacting and sharing with other people, that we oftentimes fail to catch a glimpse of the messages of nature. Nature is wise, and calls to us. Once we can slow down enough to connect in that realm, and bask in the quiet required to go beyond our physical senses, there is much we can learn as we find ourselves able to translate nature’s language.
Living For the Moment
My flowers live in each moment
They don’t reminisce
About time spent as a seed
Or worry about the past
Did I grow enough?
Did I take too much water for myself?
Did I not bathe in the sunlight long enough?
They learn to grow and move on
To blossom and show their beauty
Not steeping themselves in what has passed
Otherwise, we could never delight
In the beautiful blooms that they become
