Cool Breeze Guided Meditation

August 09, 2023

Sit back, relax, and focus on a cool breeze washing over you during this guided meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with the poem, " The Once Invisible Garden," by Laura Foley.

The Once Invisible Garden, by Laura Foley.

How did I come to be

this particular version of me,

and not some other, this morning

of purple delphiniums blooming,

like royalty - destined

to meet these three dogs

asleep at my feet, and not others -

this soft summer morning,

sitting on her screened porch

become ours, our wind chime,

singing of wind and time

yellow-white digitalis

feeding bees and filling me-

and more abundance to come:

basil, tomatoes, zucchini.

What luck or fate, instinct,

or grace brought me here? -

In shade, beneath hidden stars,

a soft, summer morning,

seeing with my whole being,

love made visible.

"The Once Invisible Garden", by Laura Foley, from "How to Love the World: Poems of Gratitude and Hope, edited by James Crews.
