Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the summer. (I’m not. I’d rather be too cold than too warm because at least you can add layers to warm up – anyway I digress).

Today I’m sharing another short poem, and I hope you enjoy it!


Turn your face sunward and bloom
Let the golden warmth envelope you
Bloom and let your spirit brighten
Feel newness in your bones

Bloom and be once more refreshed
Be grounded by your roots
Feel nourished by the air around you
Take comfort from your home

Bloom and shine with all the colours
Stand firm, stand out, be proud
Be different, unique, unquiet
Be more than monochrome

As always, thanks so much for sharing your time with me today, it really means a lot.

Until next time,

  1. Magnolia Tree

    My drive through our back lanes towards Totnes passes through the tiny village of Aish, and every March this will take me past Aish House.
    But before I get there, at a particular rise in the road, sun or no sun, I will be on the lookout for the shining white glow of the flowering white Magnolia that lives in the front garden of Aish House and appears as if by magic.
    Quite stunning!

    Magnolia Tree

    Oh glory be!

    A flowering white magnolia tree
    That dazzling lights so clearly
    The secret dark inside of me
    Shocking my senses breathlessly
    With racing currents flowing free
    To fuse upon eternity
    A blooming flash of ecstasy.

    Oh glory me.

    Then rain comes falling quietly
    White petals dropping silently
    As nature summons gravity
    To meet in time mortality
    And fade away bright beauty
    Until there’s nothing left to see
    Save leafy green magnolia tree.

    Oh glory be!
