Several years ago, a student took these pictures. It is a beautiful example of how we are part of Nature and have to learn our role within as we unify with it. In becoming one with Nature, we experience Nature as a vital piece belonging to a larger fabric of community. We move into a role of stewards, rather than a user and discarder.
In these unifying moments, we experience Nature’s richness and transform. With increasing awarenss and mindfulness, we can experience belonging to, in, and with Nature, rather than outsiders who exploit, use, and discard. The butterfly and each of us become intimate partners in Nature’s dance.
A result of these pictures is the accompanying haiku.
Resting on journeys
Alighting in this moment
Sharing time and space as one.
The student took a second picture from a different angle and in black and white. This led me to a second haiku.
stopping to rest on your way
A sensuous miracle.
Have a wonderful Earth Day 2020.
