Leaning Into Light

Frailty flailing in the breeze

leaning, green into the light,

 saturating cells with life.

Flowers lean,

Lean into light.


Unfurling, stretching

Reaching, knowing,

Weather calm or gale blowing

nothing nourishes growing

Like leaning into Light.


Flowers lean because they must

Not just because they like the warmth,

not for fancy or for mirth

But for survival in the earth

Lean into light.


Light is nourishment, light is health,

light is wholeness in our cells.

Light, not incidental to life,

but the essence of it.

Lean into light.



‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’

John 1:5

    Love this, especially the symbol of the cross in the window frame. And, yes, those of us who belong to Jesus must lean toward the true Light.
