Spiritual drift

My friend Julia Sheffield came across this driftwood as she walked along the beach. It was artistically arranged with accompanying flotsam arranged by nature in the guise of the sea artist!

It inspired her to write a poem which I am pleased to share with you.

Often, nature surprises and delights us with its remarkable and breathtaking creativity. This is a case in point. Equally we can go around with blinkers on and miss out on what creation has to show us. In a different context but with the same meaning, Francis Thompson, in his poem. In no strange land,  wrote the line, ‘Tis ye, tis your estrangéd faces who miss the many splendoured thing.
