I am an aspiring bhaktin (practicing student) on the path of Bhakti Yoga…
Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of devotion. This poem came as a metaphor of my inward journey in this wintertime of hibernation and contemplation. It reflects spiritual growth, trust and surrendering to this process of new life. Remembering the importance of patience, protection, time for space and growth...and to be open to Grace.

My Winter’s Prayer
There lies a seed within,
deep inside one’s heart,
resting in the womb of the Divine Mother.
This wintertime of hibernation is a holding place
always there, protecting, waiting
for the Springtime of life.
When the seed begins to open
to the Sun within,
we remember His Light and Love.
for this tiny seed,
this sweet delightful bud,
the flowering of our True Self appears.
Beginning in the dark womb,
with patience and loving care,
Nancy Carlson: "I am an evolving poet, writing mostly as reflection, contemplation. But most recently, as a student of bhakti-yoga, as an expression of my devotion. I work as an Holistic Nurse Coach, yoga/meditation teacher and Reiki Master. You may contact me on Facebook here or via my website 'Joyful Healing' here.
