All summer long
you were at my window
like a quiet poem
enchanting the realm
of my courtyard garden
you told stories to the sun and myths to the moon
whispered to moths and angels and stars
You chanted summer's prose in pink essence
and shared sleepy secrets next to the green leafy gods
all summer long you sang at my window
the summer has come and gone
Autumn has swallowed you
And a Wintery Realm soon comes
to take your Wings
and send away the Songbirds
but the ghost of you will remain there
your memory shining
from the veil
as I look out my window
and wait for your Return.
Spring will rise with the promise
of new souls and blooms
I will wait for a new world,
I will wait for the spirit of you.
Every summer I enjoy the beauty of HollyHocks.
To me..they are Quiet Messengers of the garden.
and even Whimsical
These gentle giants adorn any space and bring it Charm and Poetry.
They bring back a Time of Simplicity
and Carry the Spirit of Gratitude and Joy,
and pureness of heart.
Friendships Bloom where Hollyhock grow.
At My Window
This year..one grew beautifully near my window..
This felt like a Special Sign,
a reminder everyday of the Poetry of Life,
the Magic waiting to be seen ,
the beauty of the outside world saying come and play, come dance in the garden..see what I see!
What did HollyHock wish to show me?
It is wonderful to feel in tune with the spirit of plants,
your space and the magical message they lay at your feet.
Symbolic Places and Totems
Notice where special plants grow..
My special messenger was at my window..
Windows are magical symbols.
Windows can respresent perception, and vision, eyes to the soul.
They can ignite clarity and point you to new ways of thinking
and new consciousness blooming.
Windows can lead us to new Worlds
Windows can carry messages of widening perspective, world view
seeing more clearly, expanding your awareness
noticing what is on your horizon
Expanding your Dreams.
Embracing the journey right infront of you
"The focal point" to align your awareness
and to pay attention to at the time...
To embrace the magic of life
Symbols will mean whatever you feel is true for you
What you see through the window
is even more symbolic.
This feathery tower of Hollyhock was dancing at my window every day
pointing me to Joy and freedom
and like a Floral Wand or Arrow.. it was constantly reaching
in the direction of the Sun and Sky above.
Reach for your dreams...
HollyHock Spirit was offering me an Invitation...daily!
Plants will do that!
Do you Recognise Plants
Speaking to you?
So..how about any of you?
Did any special plants ADORN
any special spots or areas..and get your attention?
special places that mean something to you?
Have you ever found a plant suddenly growing
that never could before!
Or a plant that grows in abundance..
or a certain Color..pattern..
all are messages for you.
Or a special plant given to you by a loved one
that grows at an important time etc
Across the Veil
One of my friends had a beautiful plant that came to surface and bloom
after the passing of someone she loved.
She planted it years before, given to her by this loved one. ..and it never took.
So when it surfaced and bloomed the following year after she died..
she felt that it was a special gift from her loved one!
Another special story...after my sweet dog died and was buried...
a beautiful Stray Sunflower grew atop where she was buried.
What a wonderful gift!
Many magical experiences happen in this way!
This is how plants speak to us!
They may be offering you an Invitation of sorts..
connecting you more with nature
offering you a sign
or offering certain energies and qualities for your life
or also can be directly related to what you are experiencing at the time.
You will simply know!
Hope you had some magical experiences this year too.
Feel free to share your plant magic and stories!
Awake with Charm and Spirit
