Summer Morning in the Garden

A butterfly on an orange flower.

summer morning in the garden,
dew clings to my toes and
coolness lingers in the air
and I am reminded of a cold
not yet heated.
here is the most alive place I
have ever been,
the place of my great joy
and my great discomfort.
the earth pulls so hard
I want to lie down on her,
close my eyes beneath a canopy
of green and be swallowed
by the garden
on this summer morning.

I want to share this beautiful life with others and teach them the lessons we've learned along the way. Welcome to Roots and Refuge, friend. I am so glad you're here.
