deep golden sun sinks behind the strand of Douglas Fir. a sheen glades the grass sweeping before me towards the distinct red hill. all around is sky offering a warm embrace. my steps are measured. it is hard to walk when one’s heart weighs so heavy a weight

each footstep draws a tear earthwards. a prayer for my own healing.  a call to the soul beyond all of this, the witness who can breathe and smile a knowing smile. i hear a voice, not mine, ‘help me’ and i know now i’m in trouble and must step so lightly, one step at a time

Beltane eve calls me

witness the ancient marriage /

sky holds the weather

    I find it hard to be in the Beltane spirit as well because of the unseasonable cold we had most of April. The earth does need healing. Hopefully humanity will realize that by healing the earth, they will also heal part of themselves.

    I am sorry your heart is heavy, but we are of this world, so it is no wonder. I think in healing ourselves, is the first step in healing the world.

    I hope we can indeed heal the earth by walking lightly. I was reminded of that this morning as I sat in my tree. Dropping tears along the way – what a sacred watering of the earth.

    Your beautiful words made me sad Paul. I do so hope the weight is lifted soon.
    Many hugs.

    I believe that walking is healing…each and every step. Sometimes we have to let the skies above lift our heavy hearts along the way.
