A beautiful Mimosa tree caught my attention while on my walk the other day...it has been so hot lately that my walks have become shorter, since I can no longer walk early in the mornings and my water bottle doesn't last nearly long enough. This Mimosa tree is also known as a silk tree and has pretty little pink flowers that look like puffs on top of a fern. I appreciated its fan like effect when the breeze went through and I had to think...how very Southern.
A Guided Purpose by Fion Lim
Fluttering mind, fluttering mind
calm yourself down and have a rest.
Slow down the busyness of your mind,
and cool off your many distractions.
There's the calming effect of a fixed purpose,
Which slay all doubts, worries and fears.
Once you found a goal to commit to,
Your powerful mind set to work in a tenacious way.
No hesitancy, no pull back, no excuses.
Removing all obstacles that stand in the way.
Upon reaching the far-fetched goal,
You wonder at the marvel of it all.
A great power seems to be at work,
Guiding you along the line of fulfilling your aim.
The power of a committed purpose,
All lie within your powerful mind.
