Body Awareness and Gratitude

June 6, 2019

Wandering in the marshy area where Moose hang out

Tripping over limbs

Sinking in the Marsh

Seeing evidence of the Mama Moose and her Baby

Not seeing them though

Rain was falling

In the distance thunder is heard

The rain continues to fall

Becoming damp, I am chilled

I am also aware of the depression

Aware of a growing headache

Aware of the tiredness of my body and spirit

Yet I am also aware that I am fully alive

The sun has come out

The sky brightens

I am alive and fully aware of my body

I am fully aware of my environment 

All because we chose to wander off of the path in search of a family.

A reflection written as a part of the Abbey of the Arts on-line retreat, “Eyes of the Heart: Photography as a Contemplative Practice.”
