Magnificent Magnolia Morning

Magnificent Magnolia Morning

By Amba Gale

Now come the rhodies,
  ripe with red
  and readiness
  singing Spring,

while my greening magnolia
  tree greets
  the sea.
  Magnificent each morning
  in her pink green dress
  changing each day.

No morn is like the last.

My own garden lets me know:
Not only is change inevitable
Not only do our little deaths
give way to new births
Not only if we give our focused
attention, we will have
the gift of amazement.
Not only do the ever
flowering blossoms
drop to the ground
making rich the soil
with their pink and blue petals.

But I, too, in my morning reveries
Belong,
am being breathed open myself
by the breath of the divine.

Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Breathe. Let the light that is all around you enter through your crown chakra. Let it penetrate your Being. Feel The warmth of the fire within you. Know that you are loved. Align all the energies. Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
