have fallen into mulch
and we are left
in the bareness
Trees have shed their leaves;
Sap has moved back into core.
Roots extend down into soil
for deeper anchor into foundation.
Rather then branches extending out into air
Underground branches push down
into ashes of ancestors
absorbing nutrients for growthand future bloomings.
Trees are great teachers
for Wintering and Rooting.
Here are some Mindful Musings
for your pondering...
- What extraneous things have you released this season, this year, this life?
- Contemplate the bareness of being. How does this feel? What does it inspire?
- How does Winter anchor you into your foundation?
- How do you absorb nutrients from the ashes of your ancestors?
