Be like a flower ...

.. and this morning I found a new bloom in my garden .. a little dose of sunshine each morning lately and she has burst forth .. my daughter's new camera gives us a wonderful new insight into moments like this .. are you amazed like me at the tiny drops of water on each petal?

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour
~William Blake

.. after coming inside and checking my emails I find there are two about flowers .. and it felt for a moment that there was a greater consciousness happening ...

.. from a Buddhist monk talking about meditating on compassion "if we do not take the time out to sit with the experience of compassion, it will never flower" and from Zencast blog "Be Like a Flower .. a flower needs water a flower needs sunlight a flower need nourishment be like a flower and all things will come to you like a flower".


  1. I think we all need a little nourishment from time to time. Thank you for another lovely post....

  2. Thanks Yvonne .. I do love the green surrounding us at the moment and due to the little rain this week everything shines .. but it does make the heart skip a beat when mother nature presents us with the gift of a flower!
