From Root to Bloom by Danna Faulds

Sap is flowing once again

from root to trunk, from

trunk to branch, to every

leaf and bud and blossom

on the tree.

The frozen days

are past. Now is the season

of flowering, when the full

force of energy moves up and

up to manifest its destiny.

It is everything to me, this

new life spraining forth from

ash and compost, this chance

to nurture, weed, and prune,

to patiently receive the

miracle that blooms as if

no force unearth can

turn side its beauty

Can you feel it within you too?

I am back from 10 glorious days at Kripalu assisting in the 300 hour Special Populations teacher training module. Being there as Spring unfolded was very special…. and to witness the unfolding, learning and growth of the Sangha was a joyful experience.

Let me float here awhile ….
