Peace-Filled Holidays To You All

The way the Light kisses
the snowberry as if for the last time
the way the dew drop holds on for dear life
before it lets go
the way
the two winged ones share
the same fragile branch

makes me want to live better

makes me want to, for all the rest of my days
bow and weep and sing
and promise to stay forever
wide-eyed Awake
to the undeniable poetry
of it all

My little beauties--Marielle, age 10, Lily, age 7

May we stay forever wide-eyed awake to the undeniable poetry of it all.

Wishing each of you beauties a deep-breathing, joy-filled, peaceful holiday.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.  Rumi

With so much love & gratitude,
