Lotus Fairy

Galia Alena, Lotus Fairy painting

"In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus, and there gaze on the Infinite Beauty." Kabir

Dragonfly medicine, bringer of light, cuts through illusions and her shifting colours help with transformation and transition as we move through the mud of this world to be raised pure as the lotus. She helps us dig deep through our emotions while keeping a lightness of being and joyfulness.

“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world” Buddha

Shine- Miss Match Week 11 with Lorraine Veronica

It was my turn to pick the themes for this week and I picked Shine, Voice & Still.
When I paired up the teams I was an odd number so I chose not to play but shot my shine photo anyway which appeared here. Then Lorraine lost her partner and magically her delicious image worked beautifully with mine: serendipity. It has been fabulous watching how everyone interpreted the themes I chose- go and check them out here, there are some simply gorgeous ones.

I am these colours
   Clear and calm
Delicately vibrant, translucent mist
   Soft and ever dreamy.

I am these colours
  That wash up on the shore
In the shadow of another
  Lost day.

I am these colours
  That I see and hear
The purples to the soft
  Peach that skirts the clouds
Oh the blues. I hear the blues.

I am these colours
  That wash alive
Over the days to sleep.
  Colours that mingle
And dance into each other.

I am these colours
  Always anew
The surface of the depths
  The hint,
  The wonder.
