Limekiln Reflections

The rising sun’s reflections on misty, mirror-topped lake
Reveal my imperfections, the changes I must make
To be calm like the waters through dark, mysterious Night
To begin the day in stillness, rising gently with the light
To breathe my inner silence and rest in that clear space
To revel in Sunlight’s warm Love shining on my face
To listen with my ears open, hearing the loon’s call
To hear my inner stirrings, honoring them all
To move through my days gently, allowing for the breeze
To flow along with changes adjusting gently and with ease
To live each day in Beauty so when the Night does come
I’ll feel my inner fullness and be peaceful that it’s done.

    Ahhhhh…. how wonderful this is. A sense of resolution and surrender reassures me here. It speaks to me… and I’m thinking, what a lovely poem to read to my daughters as a guiding sentiment. Are you the author of Limekiln Reflections, Patty? I can just imagine that this came to you while in the Adirondacks this week… poetry is an art form I haven’t given enough time to myself. I appreciate finding your blog and reading your poetry. (Suzanne)

    Hey, is this in reference to Limekiln Lake in the Adirondacks?! My family camped there for many years. One of my favorite childhood memories. Thanks. . . lovely writing.

    Yes, it is. I spent a few weeks there each childhood summer. As an adult, I have reconstituted that lovely tradition. Glad you enjoyed it.
