Visiting Christine at the Abbey, and paging through the visual meditation offered there, this Red Starfish "jumped" off the page at me - not only off the page but complete with words from my head. With Christine's permission, I share with you....
Brooch of the sea
Living, watery home now exposed to the air
You share your dying color with those of us land bound
and remind us of the mermaid who may have worn you in her hair
I share the moment with you who may not yet have visited Christine's superb site. Timing is a little off as she is on a two week sabbatical, but please bookmark it and go back for a visit in two weeks. (There is a wealth of information there to review. In the meantime, I suspect her return will be full of wonder and inspiration for all visitors.)
In addition to being moved by the photo, it brought to my mind several talented blogger/photographer friends - Lucy, Bill, Kerrdelune.. and their sites that often move me to thanksgiving and reflection. It's a miraculous gift that these persons, through their talent and gifts, bring such luxury to our own eyes and minds.
My personal reflection would be to suggest that this weekend we all look around - wherever we might be - and see the wonder that our own eyes would love to share with others.....maybe we'll have cameras and maybe not - but wishing beauty and reflection for your friends is a wonderful prayer in itself. Enjoy the view!
