For Summer Solstice, my friends and I are gathering to honor this special day & recommit ourselves to one another… unique blossoms that together form a garden of incredible beauty, grace, & strength. I wrote this poem to remind us of what makes us thrive.
A Blessing To Each Flower
A seed secure in the soil asks not, “What shall I be?”
It’s unique beauty comes naturally, effortlessly.
Nourished and nurtured, it grows more fully into itself
And what it is IS what it is meant to be.
The birch envies not the willow
Nor does it strive to be anything other than Birch.
Daffodil degrades not the dandelion
Nor does it mock the maple.
For all have a place in Gaia’s garden.
All are loved & accepted unconditionally.
And while each has needs that differ from another
All radiantly bloom with this blessing….
May we each have the tender care we need,
May we each be given the space to grow,
May we see our own beauty,
And may we celebrate the uniqueness in every blossom.
