Colour Therapy



When and Why

Many thanks to SmileCalm who introduced me to this poem by Rabindranath Tagore.  It resonated strongly after my woodland discovery.  I hope you enjoy it too.

WHEN I bring you coloured toys, my child, I understand why there is such a play of colours on clouds, on water, and why flowers are painted in tints–when I give coloured toys to you, my child.

When I sing to make you dance, I truly know why there is music in leaves, and why waves send their chorus of voices to the heart of the listening earth–when I sing to make you dance.

When I bring sweet things to your greedy hands, I know why there is honey in the cup of the flower, and why fruits are secretly filled with sweet juice–when I bring sweet things to your greedy hands.

When I kiss your face to make you smile, my darling, I surely understand what pleasure streams from the sky in morning light, and what delight the summer breeze brings to my body–when I kiss you to make you smile.

Woodland Walk

I’ve lived in Ireland for about 15 years now, and I’ve been looking for a particular kind of walking trail for all those years.  Now I’ve finally found it, and it was almost on my doorstep.  I can’t tell you how happy I am.  I haven’t had a chance to explore it properly yet but I took a few photos to show everyone.  The walk goes past the round tower and ruined church that I shared on this blog on St. Patrick’s Day.
