Tranquil Breeze Guided Meditation

Close your eyes and feel the breeze gently brush against your skin as you sway along with the Aspen Trees in this guided meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with a reading of her poem, 'Aspen Trees".
Aspen Trees by Julie Potiker
When we arrived, the grey trunks were welcoming,
their black eyes and symbols beckoning us to witness
thousands of delicate naked arms swaying in the wind.
Now, a blink in time later, the branches are bedecked
in shimmering green vestments
millions of sequins dancing in the sun.
Above the gentle roar of the river,
birds wearing spangled dresses
are communicating in their precious bird language.
I wish I could discern what type of bird belongs to each trill
but even if I set my curiosity upon learning to discern
what bird belongs to which sounds
(and I might),
their stories will remain
A majestic secret
filling my heart with wonder
and what feels like
Aspen Trees, by Julie Potiker.
