“The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye…until we meet again”
― Jimi Hendrix


Can we drag out this goodbye
just a little longer,
stretch it as far as it will go
across the great expanse of time
and turn back the clocks
to yesterday?

Let no words pass between us,
as we stare into a distance of separation,
holding only
soul connections!

In the stillness of memory
we’ll reminisce
the good times.

Unbearable departures
are inevitable,
cluttered with reminders,
noisy departure lounges
of melancholy.

I need the fragrance of this moment to linger
and echo remembrance.
Sweet Nostalgia
is imbued
with sunshine
and impressions
of affection.

some tears
must fall,
“Au revoir”
sounds better
than Goodbye…..

Love is all I own

“Be excessively gentle with yourself.”
John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

light 5

What light is this
that covers
my transgressions,
and lets my life be praise?
In silent imaginings,
I was not worthy,
till resplendent light
awakened the darkness
and touched the softest place,
where love is all I own.

A Sprinkling of joy

“If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.”
― George Bernard ShawImmaturity

sprinklings of joy

On long beaches,
remembrance holds dear.
Childhood reflections pool,
and draw us into family reunion,
a sense of belonging
to the sacred moments of identity.

The gloominess of cloudy days
and the spillage of glistening sunshine
pours over our wounds.

Secret vows become real,
the bone marrow of suffering exposed,
and skies rejoice,
paying homage to our soul journeys
as we move across
the never-ending sands of time!

We return to light-hearted vistas
of acceptance…
and a sprinkling of joy in places we least expect…

“Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.”
― Betty SmithA Tree Grows in Brooklyn

rose colored

I have some rose colored glasses
that see through a different lens
the extravagance of nature,
and other-worldly gems!

I highly recommend them
to get one’s mind right,
to enter the mystical
and perch from dizzy heights!

“Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!”
Pink Floyd

This is a dedication to the radiant “shining light bloggers” who are suffering in some way or other. It’s your light that illuminates the World…

love lights the world

Love’s effect is glowing light
that radiates,
and subdues
the night.

We shine across the great expanse
emitting light
in sacred dance,
darkened voids,
in places
where hate destroyed,
the sanctity of mortal souls,
when greed and power
took control.

Forgetting that
Earthlings are…….
formed in the light of stars!

Let’s scatter               love
and cast our fear,
with divine floodlights in the atmosphere!



Posted in daydreaming, heaven

There you were……

“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”

the light of eternity

Yesterday I was desolate, imprisoned by fear
the walls closed in,
no cadence could I hear.

Stumbling in darkness, I had lost my way
searching for you,
unqualified to pray.

Then I stepped into light,
new visions I saw,
harbingers of eternity unlocked the door,
and led me
to where
living waters flow,
indescribable views
a cosmic glow,
and there you were tall and wise
radiating light
right before my eyes.

You imparted healing in transcendent song,
and exhaled peace
with the heavenly throngs…

Moods of Saffron

saffron auras

Moods of saffron
my eyes,
cerulean waves
of depth mesmerized.

From indigo blues,
splashes of heaven,
tickled my toes.

Silent reflections
translucent guides,
peaceful sensations
of warmth inside.

And love poured out in luminous light,
held by presence,
my soul became bright.
