In Harmony


By Diana Wanamaker

It was a quiet summer morning I arrived at the barn. After feeding and chores were done, I still had time to spare. I wanted to sneak in a mediatation before starting the day. My days had been so unbalanced with a fast pace, I knew I had to get more meditation in, to relieve some of the stress.

I grabbed my stool, headed to the back of the barn and took a seat. The barn was quiet and I was alone. Jay had finshed eating and was peacefully grazing. The sun was in abundance. There was a gentle breeze that was a bit cool, but it was that time of day when it was beginning to get warmer.

I sat down and closed my eyes and focused on my peaceful vision. Started with deep breaths, sat up straight and relaxed my inner body. Jay walked up to the back of the barn and stood there, next to me. His head lowered and I could feel his nose just touching my ear. I began to feel his breath. He stood there with me, quietly taking in the meditation. As I began to relax, my breathing became deeper and slower. Sighs of tension and stress were released. Jay’s breathing changed and he too released his tension with sighs. Harmony and peace was restored for both of us. Jay moved back to grazing, I got up and started my day with a sense of calm.

Moonlit Glow

By Diana Wanamaker

The sounds of the night during a moonlite glow. The barn is nestled off the road surrounded by woods and located near a lake. As I enjoyed the quiet, evening feeding with Jay, I heard the call of an Owl. I stopped to hear another answer it’s call in return. Then another location of the woods, yet another Owl called. The geese honked with an echo from the waters home. A duck sounded it’s presence, all within a late night’s end.
I had grabbed my stool to take in a meditation near Jay, as I listened to the many sounds of nature, accompanied with the rythmic sound of Jay contently munching on his hay. My visions of peace and tranquilty filled my minds space. Time passed and I was able to walk away with nature’s balance within my spirit.

Took a stab at the Poem version of my evening:

The sounds of the night during a moonlit glow
Nestles a barn amongst the woods and lake
Quietness fill the evening feed
As an Owl calls
Yet another Owl calls
From one location to another the Owl calls
Geese honking from a water’s home
A duck sounding it’s presence
Within a late night’s end
sounds of nature
and the rhythmic sound of a horses contentment
Visions of peace fill the minds space
Time passes and walks away
nature’s balance
Spirit renewed
on a moonlite glow night
