& the Sacred Essence of Joy

First Lily

There is a lotus on our fishpond.  In the morning, it opens its petals to drink in the sun.  In the evening, it folds its petals in again, like hands in prayer.

This has helped me to consider the naturalness of my own rythms- how I open my petals sometimes, and how I fold them in when it is time to rest.
