“There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.”
– Morpheus

I’ve been away
gone astray
down the rabbit hole…

Can’t say why
though I’ll venture to try
it’s a complicated thing…

the multiverse is full of traps
and paths where one goes adrift

I promise I wasn’t on vacation
it was merely a quantum shift!

Like a worm in a pupa
endeavoring to fly
up through the cosmos
into open skies…

I had a little brain freeze
my calls were put on hold,
there was no kind of warning
it couldn’t have been foretold!

Similar to Neo in the matrix
needing a wakeup call,
a series of epiphanies
a nonsensical fall…

It’s a road less travelled with barely a seeker’s guide,
I had found a place of safety
a place to quietly hide…
(or so I thought)

I’ll scribble again with the lords of time and set my mind to jot down some rhymes..

The sky will be my limit
as I try to get back on track,
muster the strength to speak again
and not be quite so slack!!

but I can’t promise anything, this is just an unfolding
flying is harder than you think……. 😉

I love the joy of simple things,
like cool breezes
on my skin,

misty walks on autumn days,
the thunderous sound
of crashing waves,

delightful gatherings on the sands,
shrill seagulls
that clumsily land,

crabs that wash up on the shore,
sparkling waters
that gently restore.

I love the brilliance of blue skies,
sunkissed vistas
that harmonize.

I never tire of halcyon days,
when carefree aspects
capture my gaze…

“Draw alongside the silence of stone, until it’s calmness can claim you.”
― John O’Donohue

As the sands move with the tide
they gather
and then let go,
currents knowingly flow..

The beach rises and falls.
Sea shells and stones embed themselves
in the rock’s memory
as if to remind us
that these rocks were once a beach.

It’s like us as we change
we retain the memories of our past,
it makes us who we are today,
maybe a little complicated
but beautiful nonetheless…

I rise and fall…

“Do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know the side you are used to is better than the one to come.”
― Rumi

I watch at the turning
of the tides,
knowing I’m one with the great design.

In natural movements I ebb and flow,
feeling high
sometimes feeling low!

In fellowship with this gentle stream
I breathe in deeply
I am redeemed
by the waters as they naturally shift
it’s in this moment I coexist
with the rhythm
of the moving sands
where mother nature makes no demands.

I rise and fall,
from time to time
I clumsily crawl.

But I acknowledge the grace
of a changing earth,
it resembles the journey of my soul’s rebirth…

Growing back..

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.”
– 1 Corinthians 13 1

If darkness threatens you,
keep looking for light
If winds bowl you over
let the earth
hold you tight…
Let the mystery of angels
be your eternal guide,
ushering you back
to where holiness abides..

Grow back into the greenery
of your truest self,
leave fear behind you
and go to where loveliness dwells..

Confessions of sadness
had swept you away
yet under the blue skies you constantly pray…

Love will never leave you
nor extinguish your glow,
For you exist in realms
where grace overflows…


I have not been present lately, just clinging to the shattered pieces, I am still one with the Universe..

Collective souls…

“I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion–and where it isn’t, that’s where my work lies.”
― ram dass

If you want to see humanity
at its most splendid,
sit for a while with those
who have known great suffering.
Drink from the water-cooler
of life with those who have very little worldly wealth.
Cry with those who have faced terrible darkness.
Join in with the song
of the survivors
who made it to the other side..
You will find yourself in kinship
with the most beautiful expressions of humanity
poured out..
The trees will dance for you
the skies will open up
and butterflies will visit you on tender wings.
You will find yourself rejoicing
in the divinity of humankind…
