Rhythm & Pattern Flows Through our Veins

( I wrote this a few weeks ago and have been mindful of it this week as I've noticed specific birds arrive in my yard for winter and then feed at the same time each day.. Similarly in the Universe we just experienced a lunar eclipse thanks to Earth's being suspended right in the middle of the sun and moon. From the small to the unimaginably large, both birds and these universal bodies remind me of the deep, beautiful ongoing rhythm and pattern outside and beyond clock time.) 

Rhythm and pattern of Nature's kind
Meant to illuminate heart and mind.

Yet in our world artificial abounds
As clocks and calendars shout time all around.

While outside these walls in the green and the gold
another story unfolds, another story is told.

Of rising and living by shoot and by sun
Revealing through Nature, undivided the One.

Not subordinate, nor over
  but with, hand-in-hand
  minds together
Human and land.

This rhythm, this pattern that flows through our veins
Brings awareness, abundance so peace might reign.
