Breathing in Elements

Truedessa's Collection




















we meet under willow boughs at twilight
seeking balance, my heart yearns to take flight
passageway found chanting ancient prayer
breathing in elements earth, water and air


sturdy trunk, hidden doorway  appears
stepping into darkness, light disappears
seeking wisdom, earthly roots need repair
breathing in elements earth, water and air


following the path of tears, healing water
transitional movement, getting stronger
dreaming, suddenly I become aware
breathing in elements earth, water and air


we meet under willow boughs at sunlight
awakening spirit, my heart takes flight
spreading wings, a new journey to prepare
breathing in elements earth, water and air

authors note; The heron visited me in
a dream, this is to honor that vision.

    1. Yes, the heron is a guardian for me, it usually means something special will occur in the very near future.

  7. Hey True!

    And the symbolism of the willow that may weep and yet provides a light at twilight. Say hi to the heron.

  10. Herons symbolize a connection to the earth and that wisdom and insight will come from delving that connection. Loved this piece. It is a wonderful intermingling of dreams, myths and the human quest for the spiritual.

    1. Thank you Old Egg, whenever, I have a dream of this type I step back and take a reality check, what does this bird have to say to me about my waking life.

  15. The refrain reads like a prayer itself. So beautiful. Isn't it wonderful to have a vision of Nature in her bird form in dream? You are one lucky soul.
