Pool of Serenity: a morning meditation
Rain softens the sunny morning with an occasional shower.
Falling into the bird bath with a startling brightness, calling the eye; drops of nourishing liquid from the heavens.
Breathing into the deep silence; enter the pool.
Ripples occur, move and diminish.
Rest in this.
Sit on the rough porcelain bottom of the bath or float.
Lift your wet head and glistening hair, and breath again.
Touched lightly by sunlight, everyone sparkles.
The scent of flowers, in full bloom, living in the morning;
Spice, honey, attar of roses, wafting on the breeze.
Filling the body, perfuming, anointing with the blessings of the day.
Spread your wings and rise from the pool
Delicate iridescent drops fall from your body, into the bath...
What you give back
Lifted by energy, spirit and peace.
Breathing into being.
Breathing into this moment, this life,
enter the day with serenity and intention.
Unfold into grace.
Breathing into being I feel my body
Breathing out I am entering this moment
Breathing in I take in the achingly beautiful world
Breathing out I send joy and compassion
Breathing in I am lifted into the day
Breathing out I spread my wings
Breathing in I ride the currents
Breathing out I am filled with peace
