Grounded, or rooted?

It’s so much easier
Now in this time
of pandemic
To‘sit with our feelings’
when we feel down

But the truth is
We don’t want to
be with them 24/7
linger on the nuances
examine all angles

We have less distraction
but moredistance
Less busyness
but also less bon
ding

We have time to ground
ourselves
To practice life enriching skills
To use our senses – bring us
into the moment

But what am I
grounded to?
What am I sensing?

I need to hear the bird’s song
Smell the fragrant nectar
Feel the grass under my feet
All written, designed, textured
by You

None of this matters
if I am not
Rooted
Anchored
Held
Loved
by You, my Lord
