Pomegranates and a poem

DSCN2220This poem resonated over the last couple of days.  And in my stillness I made pendants inspired by my beloved pomegranates. Symbols of abundance, patience, beauty and love.  I strung them on beading wire threaded with tiny silver pipes and beads from Kathmandu.  I don’t seem to be over this pod/ seed thing yet.

Just For Now” by Danna Faulds

Just for now, without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness.

Just for now, lay down the
weight you so patientlyDSCN2219
bear upon your shoulders.
Feel the earth receive
you, and the infinite
expanse of sky grow even
wider as your awareness
reaches up to meet it.

Just for now, allow a wave of breath to enliven your experience.

Breathe out
whatever blocks you from
the truth. Just for now, be
DSCN2217boundless, free, awakened
energy tingling in your
hands and feet. Drink in
the possibility of being
who and what you really are
so fully alive that when you
open your eyes the world
looks different, newly born
and vibrant, just for now.
