how can i resist the call of a fallen flower when my altar is open & receptive to offering? the flower did not ask to be an altar offering yet circumstances now conspire to bring them together. thus have i come to You, Shiva, myself a fallen bloom & You, opening to take me in Your companionship. just so do the pieces of the puzzle find each other, as a great coming together of need & the response. no matter. however it happens, we are joined, Shiva. it is the way of things for me to cleave to You, my love. every moment of this life points to You. i see that now. this fallen blossom adorns the altar of Your vastness as an offering to the deep wholeness underlying the unending changes of this transient earthly realm. every fallen flower sets upon a homeward journey.
