DAY 4 ~ communing
Rest in Loving Contact
And in the rootedness in essence
And in the sensing and the movement
And the listening,
A love is birthed - birthed from the revelations,
And the harmonies
That whisper through the newly opened portals
Of tender attention . . .
A love that births itself again and again
In celebration of a new found friend,
A smile, a tree, a bee, a cloud
A wink of spirit shining through
Inspiring us with tender touch
To softly step on sacred ground, and offer forth
That love to share and birth
And birth and share again.

Each Essence a consciousness all of its own,

An exclusive sensation,
A pulsating partner in all of Creation.
