Nature's Medicine Cabinet
Sunrise awakens the garden, an herbal oasis yawning a breath of oxygen for us all to consume. How thoughtful. How selfless. How life-giving she is.
Daybreak casts her rays onto the brilliant green canopy of abundant life & medicine. Misty dew blankets the garden plants like infinite diamonds left behind from the evening galactic rains. Swallowing the brisk, dense air of tropical vapors, while exploring the coming to life of this medicinal herbal oasis, reminds that there is no negative space in the wholeness of this environment. I am whole. I too, am connected.
The waking air is brisk, and the sanctuary of birds harmoniously sing their morning melodies. I close my eyes and welcome the sound waves to tickle my heart strings. Vibrant colorful flowers open their mouths wide, inviting the honey bees to dance upon them with glorious splendor. Divine sweet nectar.
Stroking passing leaves as wings flutter in rapid beat, the bees are the intelligent carriers of human survival. Silently, I give thanks to the neighboring honeybees sipping on the crimson red pineapple sage blossoms, for they are the true medicine makers. Humble. Unassuming. Void of ego. Magical buzzing wonders diligently assuming their kuleana (responsibility-graceful guidance) with their earthly contributions; pollinating each herbal plant one by one.
I relish in the aromatic wafts of high frequency perfumes that hover in the dense air. The sun inches higher, painting a pastel sky. Muffled voices echo in the distance. Sensing the gardeners and herbalists arriving, the plants are alive with erect stature, ready to perform their own kuleana. Turning one last time, as the team arrives, I gratefully soak in the abundant energy of nature's medicine cabinet.
