It’s a lazy Sunday our end as we slowly awaken after a lovely lakeside party in Zürich yesterday. I will be taking a break from blogging for the next couple of weeks as I will be on my second inner leadership retreat with patchy WiFi and it’s a damn good excuse to unplug for a while! Today’s poem is about the answers we find in nature when we take the time to witness our surroundings. More from me on my return!
There is nothing lacking
suggests the satellite sun as it sears through the clumpy treetop
Everything’s just as it should be
confirms the trusty trunk and his trellised torso
Find what you need within you chirp the clusters of winged warriors
(They make it all sound so easy!)
Sure, you’ll get stung from time to time
smirk the scissored stems of smug stinging nettles
So take a break
beckons the balmy bench, now bolstering my battered back.
I smile at the old familiar message
smiling back at me through the river’s ripple
Give more of what you long to receive
