Flowers in an Illinois garden. Photo taken by Jim Tanselle., Flowers in Illinois., Mindfulness in the out-doors., Pinterest photo- Thich Nhat Hanh., poetry by Yu/stan/kema, Sunday Morning., Sunlight bathing both body and soul.
The sun is warm on my neck and cheek.
It is a warmth that gently enters the soul,
And leaves a path of dappled sunlight
For the Spirit to find its way back home.
It is comforting and tender in its touch
Upon my neck, almost like a lover’s kiss.
The sun’s rays warm the baskets of
Hanging flowers and other flowers
Blooming in the flower gardens nearby.
The tree leaves quiver in anticipation
As the sunlight falls near them.
The lake sparkles with tiny diamonds
That settle on its surface.
It seems all is peaceful out here
In the healing arms of Mother Nature.
