Blessings

She closes her eyes
to see everything
clearly

Breathes

becomes still as the great
wheel turns

because magic happens
inside that stillness.

Every rock whispers.
Its molecules vibrating
‘neath the warm glow of
the sun.

Every tree sings out a joy
of life from its roots
to trembling leaves
as all turn to face
the sky

and
every stream ripples.
Revels in its harmony
with the land.

Every creature lives
its life of gratitudes.

She hears a distant call of
the wolf to its mate

a whoosh of feathers as
an Eagle soars

Silent and still

she hears wisdom of the ancients
calling to her
through whispering winds
which ruffle her hair
tickle her skin
and she wishes
for once
(just once)
everyone could taste
this sweet ambrosia
in all the blessings
which love of life brings.

  1. “she hears wisdom of the ancients
    calling to her
    through whispering winds”

    This echos throughout the entirety with each element you introduce so elegantly. Such a praise poem!!

  2. Eyes closed. A precursor of good things that can happen in the near future. The yearnings and imaginations run wild. Great take, Bren!

    I love “hearing the wisdom of the ancients”!
    This really captures the mood n’ magic of a wish!
    My favorite lines:
    “Every tree sings out a joy
    of life from its roots
    to trembling leaves
    as all turn to face
