Lily flowers in a pond float like pretty colored birthday cake flowers.
Magical blooms of nature from a water plant with its roots bound deep in mud.
The leaf green lily pads float becoming perches for frogs & toads who sing in the night.
In the sunlit water morning koi fish jewels flash deep & then surface for a look at the day.
Dragonflies zoom by, leaving iridescent color trails sparkling in my mind’s eye.
This is joy. Not flash in the pan happiness, but deep-seated, lasting joy.
Of being alive in this life, of knowing that I am part & parcel of it all.
The glittering magic, the deep swimming sea, the song of life.
The water flowers bloom with the magic of a thousand years of the continuation of life.
The earth is filled with joy.
Joy. Joy. Joy. Happy Birthday to me. I hear the singing of the earth.
