Fern at Chanticleer Garden on April 7, 2021
Fern,
furled,
a question mark
waving in the wind,
holding to the fetal curl
and the safety
of the winter womb.

Nothing,
not the gentle
kiss of sun,
nor stream voice,
calling,
can coax
that frond
to unfurl
one single moment
before it does.

~ Danna Faulds taken from "Go In and In" Poems from the Heart of Yoga

Nature takes its time and follows a deeper knowing for survival and growth.

What a great lesson for every one of us.

You are exactly where you are meant to be right now.

There may be a questioning and a holding on to the safety of the past.

When the time is right we follow our deeper knowing and the call of our inner nature.

Namaste
