blue poppies

my meditating happens early in the morning, before other humans are awake, surrounded by my dogs and cats. coffee brewing and candle lit. this was today, followed by a hunt for a photo i took in 2009 which i turned blue.

we’re invited to plant an intention in our heart; our sweet heart, the tender and fertile garden, the garden that is tended by mindfulness and effortless work.

plant an intention in your heart.

i pick up the seed and just before planting it, my mind thinks,

wait. you already planted that.

then instead of breathing life into my freshly planted intention, allowing divine love to bathe it in light, stepping back to watch the hidden growth, i’m scrambling through bins of seeds. perfectly fine yet not what i wanted.

until today.

plant an intention in your heart.

i pick up another of the same seed and just before planting it, my mind listens to my soul,

wouldn’t it be beautiful to have a garden full of my voice in bloom?

varying levels of growth, varying stages of bloom, a flower for every moment?

so today i sank into the ease of following my heart and added another seed to the plot.

and they will bloom.

and they will be flowers.

and they will be poppies.

and they will be blue.
