Reflection Pond

autumn reflecting pond
looking to see what is real, what isn’t, what is eternal
harvesting the gifts…
seeing the magic
letting go of what is no longer useful

something bubbling up
for attention or for letting go
letting the past decay and sink
making peace
remembering only what is necessary

all this rubble disorder decay
seems like fertile soil for something
maybe the elements for a flower
Thich Nhat Hanh says:

“a lotus flower needs mud to bloom”
