Talking of Rain

 

“The aspens at the cross-roads talk together

Of rain, until their last leaves fall from the top.”

Edward Thomas, “Aspens” –

 

The cool morning breeze is whispering to the trees that rain is coming. Hackberries and elms are dropping their golden-brown leaves a few at a time. As they drift slowly down, I breathe deeply of this moment of peace.

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

The Breeze of Grace

“The breeze of grace is always blowing on you,

but you have to unfurl your sails.”

– Sri Ramakrishna –

 

May we unfurl our sails to grace this week as we nurture peace, cultivate loving kindness, and carry the calm.
