Martha Postlewaite ‘Clearing’

Thank you, Monica, and Click on the link to this post – a beautiful image, and a poem by Martha Postlewaite. Monica’s site offers a wealth of resources.

Here are the words:-


Do not try to save the whole world

or do anything grandiose.

Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life

and wait there patiently,

until the song that is your life

falls into your own cupped hands

and you recognize and greet it.

Only then will you know

how to give yourself to this world

so worthy of rescue.
