Garden Musings: October Morning

Sun rising.

Watching its light move down into the forest, touching earth,

I am touched, enlivened, inwardly aware

Of the collaboration of sun/warmth/wind/water

Summoning life on our planet … now and over eons.

We humans, who evolved late in the game/cycle/creation,

So often forget the co-creative process that allows us to be –

To bask in the sun, to breathe in the air, to rehydrate with water.

Each day we are invited

To celebrate the seasons of earth and life,

To experience joys and sorrows

To know each as being alive – Alive

In the midst of something larger and older than ourselves.

~ Judy Funderburk
