More Musings From My Lakeside Retreat – July 2020

On July 17th I decided to do a silent retreat day at my Enchanted Cottage. I dedicated this one to Mary Magdalene since she has been appearing to me in my thoughts and daydreams, maybe in my night dreams also, but I don’t remember those. The first set of Haikus are for Mary and the second set from my musings lakeside and in my backyard the same day.

a plain name, Mary

it holds the whole universe

she is the Beloved

 

think, say what you please

she cares naught for your thoughts

she knows her true self

 

the rose, the lily

symbols of Mary’s pure heart

abide in my garden too

 

 

raindrops pelting down

each one a whisper, a word

Heaven’s telegraph

 

hawk screeches: Listen!

salmon gulps: Trust inner knowing!

wisdom from my cards

 

squirrels everywhere

zigzag across fence and yard

mirroring my thoughts

 

wind chimes dance on breeze

water ripples on bird bath

incense wafts on wind
