Today i walk inside a peony
she is calling me–
this beautiful flower,
i hear her amongst morning sounds
of waking birds and wind
and her fragrance
plays a song which opens my heart
i breathe and her song
becomes a balm of light entering my body
this soft path into creation
i breathe God and my spine
stiff with humanness
becomes a flute of light
i am fluid with notes like water
gliding amidst soft pink petals
tall furled passageways
softer than skin
delicate as a dream
within veins of my chest
floats the music of life
and in becoming
i step out from cells in all directions
i cannot become lost
surrounded by these petals and this path
where God has led me to walk today
i breathe and these words become light
we have known each other
since time began
it is time we dissolve the each
it is time we recognize there is no other
as we have
since time began

Aspire to spend each moment in walking talking Sacred Space.
Let’s stroll through the flowers together, Patricia! Thank you so much. In gratitude for you.
Oh, Margaret – beautiful! Thank you.
Thank you, dear Roberta, for reading, for being present in my world!
Margaret, thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment on my maple sugaring post. This is how I was drawn over here, right into the sweet folds of your peonies. What a delightful post, pictures and words!
Oh, I was happy to do that! In fact I’m going to make pancakes with maple syrup tomorrow in your honor! 🙂 I’m so happy the peonies drew you into my blog. They are SUCH lush and amazing flowers, aren’t they? Thanks for your wonderful comments! Have a beautiful spring!
Margaret, we have been walking through the same garden without meeting each other. There must come a club for authors of Photo-poems like you and me.
🙂 I think I saw you, at dawn one day, slipping through the leaves! Yes! a photo-poem club…Wouldn’t that be fantastic? We could meet in each other’s gardens….though there might be lots of long trips involved.
We have to start virtual, the host of WordPress invite us: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/building-poetry-communities/
See my comment there and the answer of Ben Huberman. We have to do sometyhnig about it.
Thank you for sharing this! I like Ben’s idea of a separate blog with guest bloggers. I do not have a lot of extra time for this, but would be honored and happy to re-blog some of my photo-poem posts onto such a group blog venue, or tag my applicable posts with “photo-poem”. Blessings to you!
Thanks for telling me about this, it’s beautiful, especially that first picture!
Thank you for checking it out! I just love flowers!
