“When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.”
― Eckhart TolleA New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

present moment

at times i feel like giving up, when life is tough,
complaints erupt!

my life seems bleak, and harmony is what i seek!

when all is lost, and i can’t feel my feet, words invade,
i loose my beat!

fear brought to bear, in darkest night, i say my prayers!

then Angels come to watch over me, to collect the fragments
of my soul’s debris!

the words i’ve mustered in my head, destructive stories,
untruth i’ve said!

thoughts become captive, on conscious breath, i live the moment,
and regain my strength!

surrender to what life has given, a place of peace,
reclaiming vision!

and gratitude raises its voice,
in dulcet tones, the heavens rejoice!





“Elegance is a glowing inner peace. Grace is an ability to give as well as to receive and be thankful. Mystery is a hidden laugh always ready to surface! Glamour only radiates if there is a sublime courage & bravery within: glamour is like the moon; it only shines because the sun is there.”
― C. JoyBell C.


In the midst of mayhem,
she kept her calm,
deliciously elegant
her presence a balm.

Slowly and deliberately
and with so much poise,
she displayed composure
amid all the noise.

The polite gestures
of her countenance oozed,
a kind of refinement,
delightfully imbued.


A Moment in time

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

egyptian geese

is this the splendor of heaven
i see?
where green pastures invade
my reveries,
and pearly skies kiss
the tawny dunes.
where seagulls glide
on still afternoons.

if this moment
could hold me in time,
i’d gaze on the bounty of
Earth sublime,
and if an ache exists in me,
i’d set my feet
on sage green seas,
i’d watch the wild geese
call to their mates
and imbibe the pageantry
of such grace!



“Respond to every call
that excites your spirit.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

october vibe

the resonance
of October,
hangs in the air,
symphonies of birds,
euphoria is

mellow winds
are gusting,
stirring the trees,
cascades of sunshine
encouraging ease.

the billows
are hollering
to come out and play,
each melancholy
at bay!
