I have written abundant
poetry addressed to you
without knowing your address,
that I feel like
and I fear that,
the world already knows your name.
I know that I have whispered it
to all the withered
blooms I have witnessed,
and they blushed
at the longing in my voice
sowing seeds of hope
in the soil
of my heart,
that effloresce into
a garden whose art
is an invitation for you
to visit again.
I once dreamt,
in a dream of separation,
that I met you
before you left me
directions to your destination.
On violet petals,
you scrawled in black ink,
that you lived on
Poet's Hope Crescent
but I forgot which flowers
you scribbled on
I search for you
in every purple blossom,
hoping you'll be waiting
for me to find you again. .
[Sometimes, I forget and am reminded by the timid moonlight of the Crescent, that I am the Poet whose Hopes (and poems) you live in]

Anyone else think rain is the best thing since sliced bread? The Leikam clan has been loving the weather lately. Rain is calming, beautiful, and nurturing. “Rain is just confetti from the sky.” ☔️#weshouldmovetothewestcoast
5 km tonight...zero intention on that as tonight was going to be a yoga night. But the weather was so nice I threw on some shoes and got it done. ✅. If only this was scratch and sniff so you could smell these amazing lilac bushes that I was running by.

More colors of these #supercute#babyHeadbands or #Headwraps are in the shop & still more on the way! I will also be making child and adult sizes and in more colors .
The Multicolor in these photos is called #TeaParty & makes me think of the #Watercolors of #Monet. I can’t seem to get the lighting to do it justice. Think #Sherbert, #OrangeCreamsicles#BlushPink#Lilacs & #Periwinkle
If you <3 these you can get them @ my Etsy shop @ www.Etsy.com/shop/ChayahEssentials

Lilac whispers to me..
Call upon me when you need to tend to your inner-child and remember your playful heart
Call upon me when you cannot see your value
Call upon me when you need your gentle nature to return to you
Call upon me to be reminded that only the Divine could create such a fragrant and beautiful work of art, and that you too are of Divine creation
Call upon me in times when you need to slow down and practice patience
Call upon me and be reminded of your special uniqueness and service as an individual so you may see yourself in your divine nature and then return to the collective as one
And remember dear child; if you meet life with resistance it will meet you back with such
I sit with lilac and call in her blessings, learning her soul and meeting her with tenderness. She teaches me as I spend days harvesting her flowers one by one. She opens the gates for me and I am able to recognize all of the places inside of myself that she lives in. I see that we are all one. I thank her for her potent medicine and gracing me with her final harvest. I honor her with deep love, feeling privelaged to begin my wildcrafting journey with her. ✨🌿
Lilacs (syringa vilgaris) - one of the most distinct smelling flowers around. It is known that smells are associated with the amygdala and hippocampus, the brain centers associated with emotion and memory. I can still recall the places of my youth where these bushes grew, that feeling associated with the beginning of summer and trips up north. I only recently learned that these are the favorite of both my mother and my grandmother, who passed long before I was born yet whose bearthday was two days ago, just one week after our own freshly arrived lil one. And, so in giving thanks to this maternal lineage, we harvested some of these medicinal edibles for a cold oil infusion, and hopefully some infused honey too. 💗love you grandma💗
Summer as a fragrance:
🌸Top notes: sweet strawberries
🌸Middle notes: morning dew on grass,
fresh lilacs & blooming roses
🌸Base note: sun kissed skin
1) knowing that taking five minutes to practice before heading into the office is a good choice.
2)A yard full of lilacs
3)The little Susitna river in the distance flowing and humming
4) The strength to hold pincha away from the wall again after having a baby. It took two years to rebuild the confidence. The strength came back quickly lugging her around. I lost the belief in myself until recently.
5) My counselor who I’m about to check in with!
6)My family and its health.
7) The big fat hen king salmon I caught last weekend.
8) The smell of smoke in the air reminding me that sometimes we have to burn up to make space for new growth.
9)My strong and open shoulders
10)Clothes no longer fitting because I’m rocking my self care game.
Deshojar dos rosas para crear un corazón, curiosa forma de intentar crear belleza, destruyendo algo que ya es bello de por sí. Así de extraños y macabros somos los seres humanos, nuestra fascinación por algo va irremediablemente acompañada de la ruina de lo que nos sedujo. ¿Qué opción os gusta más con letras o sin letras? Lo cierto es que están metidas con una App. Mi idea es progresar en el lettering y añadir texto a mis fotos. Quiero apuntarme al curso de @domestika , concretamente al que imparte @nubikini . Es una de mis tareas para estas vacaciones mejorar con el programa Procreate y usar el pencil, que apenas lo doy uso.
This is from a few weeks ago, mid-May, when I happily stumbled upon my favorite spring flower in #centralpark @centralparknyc: lilacs. I had to stop and drink it all in. And it was wonderful. (Captured here by #bae.) Interestingly, this morning, I was sent an online survey from #universityofFlorida for mental health workers around our use, or nonuse, of nature in our interventions. And it made me think of this picture, and of how often I talk to clients about taking time to slow down, drink it in, be in stillness or silence or nature and how important, vital, life giving, restorative it is listening to the trees or the water or smelling the lilacs.
Leaving this place after three days that were the official beginning of our summer. Long walks by the baltic sea, iced coffee at St:Hans Café, getting (very) sunburnt while sitting in the garden, being back at my favorite restaurant, Bakfickan, and having dinner three nights in a row at Rosengården. Saying hi to all the dogs while discovering the town, having ice-cream and sharing it with Summer, and buying new ceramics at C.Jensen. Leaving with so many memories. Leaving, but always thinking about coming back to this magic town and its streets full of roses.
