Mt. Spokane (August 15, 2009)

Perfect bonsai
Miniature pine
Grass and flower
Evergreen and berry
Little waterfall
Mossy rock
and Sprigs of Purple and Blue
Cling to the Mountain,
Define its curves with
Miniature elegance.

Every four-legged homestead
a Microscosm of
Shelter and Light,
Rainfall washing the
Paths of last season.
Nature's perfect balance,
Everything in its place
And no stone unturned.

What any city gardener would give
for this Skill, this
Magic of placement,
Soil and moisture
Exactly to Specs.
Difficult to Duplicate
Impossible to Fake
Beautiful in Execution.

May all the fragile vignettes
Survive the onslaught
of Asphalt
and the Mountain
Forgive our unconscious traverse.

Garden Meditation, August 8, 2009

[For John, and All of Creation. May the Microcosm and the Macrocosm Be One.]

Unfold me
Like a delicate flower,
Opening to sunshine
And moonshine,
and Rain.

Let me
Feel grounded
In our love,
And trust
No harm
will Be done.

Awaken the breeze
And the rustle of leaves,
Delicate chimes
And hummingbird song.
Journey with me
to the Center of the earth.

As we walk the path
And turn the corner,
And maybe Sink,
Let go,
and Fall together.

Oh Best Beloved,
I pray
To be worthy of your grace,
And offer my own softness,
Privileged to witness
the Unfoldment of your light.

Together we glow
With all the forces of nature,
Coming together,
Altering perception
and Altering reality.

With gratitude,
May I express these gifts of love
with Amplified love.

Aho, Mataquiesen.
(I Celebrate, and for All My Connections.)
