On this Day in May

Posted by on May 3, 2023 in Poetry | 2 comments

I was sad one day and went for a walk
I sat in a field

A rabbit noticed my condition and came near

It often does not take more than that
to help at times

to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing,
so full of love
that they don’t–
they just gaze with
their marvelous understanding.

~by Saint John of the Cross,
16th Century mystic
excerpted from Living the Wisdom of the Tao
by Wayne Dyer

On this Day in May

If I were the rabbit, I would be in the field with you.
You might hear me–not asking what’s wrong,
but in my nibbling of greens
and grace of being,
you would be reminded of what’s right,
even in times of great sorrow and upheaval.

As tears flow,
you might taste their perfect saltiness,
feeing the release of what was,
honoring deeply,
knowing tears are love
for a new home.
Let them flow ~
into the stream,
feeling the cleansing.

Let yourself be caressed and carried
by the stream,
buoyed by the waters in the moment,
without thought of what is around the next bend.
That is too much to bear —


Be buoyed, in this moment,
in the waters that flow,
in and around you
in and around you
In the waters that flow,
be buoyed
buoyed by the grace of the bunny in the field,
and the elements of nature.

Just for this moment.

Sharing a few spectacular clouds from today. May these images be a portal for a moment on cloud nine in your life.

I know it looks photoshopped but it’s not. Sometimes the auto white balance in our cameras might be off a touch, but it was definitely firey!

The Backroad to Bliss

What I love about road trips is taking random side roads and meeting people. I could devote a post just for that but what I really wanted to share here is another road I took that led to this gem.

I drove to the end of a dirt road and followed a sandy path. Looking back towards the parking lot.

My feet welcomed the warmth of the sand

Pleasantly surprised at the top of the path (c) Britt Nielsen

A few people enjoyed the waters of this gem of a spot on the Gulf of the Saint Lawrence.
