Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep


Glorious before become soil again
Passing from alive to not alive is seldom done gracefully.  My Rhubarb has it mastered I observe during the garden clean up Things I get to do today.  No longer erect and crisp, the stalks have lost their will. The leaves lay flattened, exposed, vulnerable and, most of all, beautiful and elegant.


No fear of letting go
What lesson is here?  Is it possible that what lies beyond is more glorious than what we are so attached to in this physical awareness? Consider the lilies. Consider the Rhubarb. Consider yourself.

    1. That quiet time of day is sometimes the best for letting these thoughts in.

    3. I think, dear Tweedles, that we love life and its fullness, but we know that what lies ahead is more magnificent than we can imagine. All is in Divine Right order, and there is no need for fear as we leave the physical realm. When we really know that, we slide out gracefully and sweetly.
