Speak to me

image

Pick something that has no “voice” and let it speak through you.

Meaning, during your day, let something grab your attention, something that cannot voice words as we do: a bird, a pole, a cup, a rock, a building, etc.

If that thing could talk what would it say? If it has an “aliveness” to it what is that like? Explain what you think it sees everyday…what impressions it feels..and so on..

Pic is optional but I really hope to be able to post one. If I can get this app thingie working, that is!

Here’s mine(pic to be posted later..hopefully).

A tree I see every day.

I can’t think but I sense and “feel.”
I hear bird songs.
I feel the rain, changes in temperature.

My leaves dance in the breeze and this delights me. I am saddened when leaves fall in the autumn, joyous when new ones return in the spring.

At night, when it’s quiet,
I sense the stars and moon above me.
They are an eternity away but I feel as much a connection with them as my roots do from the earth below.

Most people walk past and never notice me. A few people do–and I delight in being noticed and appreciated by those few.

I am rooted in stillness, but I am alive and growing and changing-everyday, much as you are. I am energy in form, same as you, and one day my form disappear from this earth.

    • Good morning, mou! I’m not going to do the blogging class due to you really need to go beyond apps for WP to see everything and to go to WP offline on my phone is frustrating. Too slow.

      I loved your introduction to you. Lol. I am going to do that and just post it as a blog via app so you and anyone who visits can know a little more about me. Take care and have a dreamy day!
