Magnificent Magnolia Morning

By Amba Gale

Now come the rhodies,
  ripe with red
  and readiness

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.

Imagine yourself an ear,     listening to another’s heart.         There, you will meet Compassion. Imagine yourself a heron,     fishing the abundant water.         There, you will be Patience. Imagine yourself as a poet,     facing the blank, white page.         There, you will…
