A Virgin a Day (5) Sit With Me

Sit for a while with me,
here in this grotto,
where leaves filter the light
so it forms a warm shawl
around your shoulders.

In the quietness, let your energy
attune with mine.

Be silent.
Let your heart speak.
I will hear and understand.

i love this meri.

the contrast of the white stone with the cobalt blue. the strong intense carving, embellishing the garments of one who embodies tenderness and compassion.

thank you....

What a warm hug you have invited us to, Meri. This made me think of a visit I made to Portland, OR this summer and a spectacular and unadvertised garden I visited (I call it The Secret Garden). This prayer recited there would be the perfect experience.

I love everything about this. Your poem captures the moment. The image is one I have not seen before (the interpretation). All very captivating!

Beautiful. I absolutely adore blue and then to have HER in a blue grotto. Perfect. Where was this taken?

Shhhhh! Be Still and know the LOVE of GOD! I think that is why a lot of saints were hermits! They wanted to devote all their time and energy in the presence of GOD! This is Beauty Full!! Where is it?!
