What is it you need right now? In this guided meditation Julie Potiker takes you on a journey to a Wishing Well. She completes the meditation with her poem, "Aspen Trees, Version 3".
Aspen Trees Version 3 by Julie Potiker
The pale grey trunks welcome me
their black eyes and thick painterly designs beckon
thousands of delicate arms sway in the wind.
A blink in time later, the branches are bedecked
in shimmering green vestments
millions of sequins dancing in the sun.
Above the soft roar of the river,
birds flaunting spangled dresses
in flashes of lemon, ruby and emerald
communicate in precious bird language.
I wish I could discern what type of bird belongs to each trill
but even if I could
(and I might)
their stories will remain hidden.
A majestic secret
That fills my heart with wonder
and what feels like
-Aspen Trees, by Julie Potiker
