Osprey love ๐Ÿ’—

My buddy

I hadnโ€™t been to my old neighborhood hangout for a while: Lake Murray. Today I had the opportunity to see my very favorite osprey kind. I felt honored that when I asked for showing some wings, I was indulged. ๐Ÿ’—

Iโ€™m in ceremony for the next couple of days joining in with two different local and online communities to celebrate the vernal equinox, while Iโ€™m also having my own inner celebration and communing opportunities with nature and my core world ๐ŸŒŽโ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿƒ

From O’Donohue’s Echoes of Memory

On the day when
the weight deadens
on your shoulders
and you stumble,
may the clay dance
to balance you.

And when your eyes
freeze behind
the grey window
and the ghost of loss
gets in to you,
may a flock of colours,
indigo, red, green,
and azure blue
come to awaken in you
a meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays
in the currach of thought
and a stain of ocean
blackens beneath you,
may there come across the waters
a path of yellow moonlight
to bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.

    1. Absolutely what you say! To me the Osprey is one of the most beautiful hawks: I love the stripe on her face, and the shape of her beak and talons! โ€œOspreyโ€™s symbolism and meaning include goal-orientation and having blind faith in your ability to achieve greatness.โ€ We can plant our seeds and have faith that one of them, the most important of all, will take root and bring us forth into our highest vision.

      This poem speaks to me in a language I could only dream of writing. Itโ€™s blessing is made of clay, real earthy and tangible. John Oโ€™Donohue a master of word and prayer ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

      Thank you, Layla! Blessings your way ๐Ÿ’•

    1. Thanks, Pragalbha! It was a happy moment for me, as all moments in life so fleeting and precious. Again, I adore interacting with birds of all kindsโ€”as with the hummingbirdโ€”having a personal interaction was confirmed with their responses to me and my requests, and also our unspoken connection.

      Pragalbha, I signed up for your email list as your recent blog post referenced. I am just so happy to see you back here ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ and always appreciate your depth of expressions.
