Day 171:let the leaves drop

Day 171 Feb 18 2016 Old Bar 9:30am P1040251cropdoc

I have always loved the message contained in the quote ‘be like the tree and let the dead leaves drop’ Rumi.

As the wind buffeted through the front door today I marvelled at the grace and beauty of the wilting lilly flowers as they dropped silently to the floor…..a state of being I aspire to find more often as my beliefs and ideals change and grow.

How beautiful the lily flowers become at rest…..no more or less….but, just another stage in the cycle of their life.
