Outside the trees are swaying.
Outside the trees are praying.

Shimmering and whistling in the
wind, leaves drop. Dark approaches.

Outside the birds are playing.
Outside the birds are praying.

Preening, shaking, skittering in the
raindrops, hopping in the grass.

Outside the birds are playing.
Outside the birds are praying.

As am I.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.
