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,

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.
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!
