OPENING TO NATURE
Joy Morris, Ph.D., is a psychologist, poet, peace dance leader, and nature enthusiast. Editing her book of poems was a wonderful journey into her inner world. Joy allowed me to comb through her journals, picking out what I thought were the most inspirational and poetic pieces, name the poems that didn't already have a name, choose the line lengths -- what incredible freedom and license she gave me to play with her inspired words and visions.
I will share the opening poem with you.
You are invited to go within and
feel the rising of your energy.
Come, be here now --
with yourself, with nature.
Take a quantum leap,
open to grace.
Like big fluffy snowflakes,
the grace of mystery is falling
on and all around you.
Let grace fall.
Grace is falling on me.
I open to the grace of mystery.
I enter the mystery of grace.
