Chases Pond Mist.JPG

Embracing Mist

Somehow we are loved so deeply
that even the natural world around us
reaches out to stop us in our daily routine

“You can’t miss this!” it calls to our heart,
“This is just for you to stop and be a part of,
as a witness of how we embrace each other.”

The gentle mist providing a blanket for the pond
connecting the trees of both shorelines
and gathering all in gentleness and unity

The distant shore line of evergreens
the barren deciduous trees close at hand
and the quiet pond water between them

We now add our breath to this moment
feeling the moisture rise from within us
exhaling to disappear so gently into it all
