Accompanying Poem by Carol Alleman:

Especially today, during these days of isolation to limit the spread of the coronavirus, the poetry of Quiet Blessing may well feel encouraging. Take those long quiet walks or take a few quiet minutes to gaze at the trees from you window, and allow the deep, warm and incessant inspiration of nature to nourish your spirit.

QUIET BLESSING

 Quietly

you bud

reminding us of all

that is yet to be born

through our budding

and assuring us a new season

will give witness to all

we nourish within.

 Quietly

your new leaf opens

unfolding yet another possibility

reminding us of our own possibilities

for opening

if just a bit, just a bit

this season

then next.

 Quietly

you offer a seed

to the Great Wind

giving all you are

to the infinite Spirit

trusting its journey

its potency exactly

where It blows.

Quietly

you display your

new colors to the world

daring to be bold and seen

in all your radiant Beauty

while fully prepared

to offer your palette of radiance

again to the Wind.

 Quietly

you sprinkle the earth with your

colors as you let go

one by one by one

and watch each one dance

with the Wind to the blessed

River and Rock that feeds you,

as it feeds us.

 Quietly

you shed your bark

when the season is ripe

with a deep, full knowing

it’s time to simply shed

all that no longer nourishes you

savoring the Core that is

truly You and Us at once.

  Quietly

 in this flawless rhythm

in your graceful surrender

you nudge us to trust

our roots as yours

dance in our Radiance

sprout, grow

and let go.

 Quietly

you grow older and older

and time and weather

mark you as their own

and yet again

you fall to the Earth

as the echo of your sacred Voice

 blesses us once more.

 Quiet blessing

you are indeed,

growing, giving

surrendering, loving -

 a resonate, infinite mirror

of all we seek

and all we Are

within the Roots we share.
