My soul sings for beauty.
For the aching perfection of a flower.
For the wild blaze of sunset and the glowing potential of sunrise.
It sings for the magnetic opal moon and for the indigo stillness of a sky full of stars.
My soul sings for the earth,
For the land, the sea and the sky.
And returning to joy through simplicity, stillness and connection.
My soul sings.
It sings for life.
It sings for love.
Extract: My Soul Sings © Stella Tomlinson 2019
Poised at this moment of perfect balance,
Time stops as I close my eyes.
Behind me the brightness of summer is fading,
Before me, the darkness of winter beckons me on.
The joy of summer enlivened my soul
And I yearn to stay with its magic and life.
Yet something inside me calls me to settle
To rest and surrender, to slow down and trust.
So I lie on the earth and its strength holds my body
I feel safe and protected and ready to dream,
I step over the threshold into autumn’s releasing
With a heart filled with faith at the transformation to come.

Quiet, damp, fullness surrounds me.
Soft underfoot, protected above.
Feeling unseen eyes watching.
Fresh, sharp-clean air at my nostrils.
Vibrant life filling my lungs with each breath.
Such deep contentment.
The trees welcome me.
I have come home.
