The beauty of small things {practice} {poem}

May you find beauty and wonder
in small things today

in the blessing of a blade of grass
a tight-furled bud
a tiny quartz crystal
the whorl of tree bark
the feathers on the face of a bird

each of these things are miraculous
in their own way
perfectly balanced designs
from the intelligence
of the earth

may you find beauty and wonder
in the perfect design of
your own eyes
your own heart
your own sensitive spirit

I invite you to take these words in deeply. Scoop them right into your bones and let them linger there. If you would like something to “do” beyond that – I suggest some form of creative expression: journaling, drawing, dancing or movement, music or sound.
