Note from Nature

All we want is to find the love

in the faces of the people we love.

All we need is to find the dark

in the nighttime sky, to lie down to sleep

in the darkness, where stars and moon keep vigil,

in the silence of a sleeping earth.

All we require is to wake to sunlight

in the morning, to simple sky,

to breathe aloud as the sky is breathing,

to drink the water of the earth.

​All we need is to touch the planet

and find it clean where we were born,

where our ancestors breathed and planted,

where we live with the plants and birds.

All we need is to live with the memory

of a future we want to imagine.

​All we want is to find the love

​in the face of the planet we love.

Monday Notes from Nature


I must say that the Monday morning meditations program was a Godsend during these endless days of the pandemic. Insightful photography combined with inspiring words. No better way to begin the work week than by awakening the senses and stirring the soul.
