“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!

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

the ocean
can calm itself,
so can you.

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.

My little cedar box

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes, because for those who love with their heart and soul, there is no such thing as seperation.”
― Rumi

a cedar box

I own a little cedar box,
and inside it
I placed a token of your heart,
a souvenir
with numbers
in metal,
just a memento
of the day the ocean
lovingly received
your mortal remains.

The crematorium’s
a tag of evidence
that you once breathed
and sang Earth songs,
the flames
your fingerprints
and you returned
to light.

And I’ve always loved this cedar box,
because its fragrance
and fondly bears my attention.
Its scent now contains
a halo of hope
for life everlasting.

When I bought this cedar box
long ago
before sorrow
blew me apart
it appeared lost,
as if it were waiting for an
eternal treasure
to hold
and absorb
with tender loving care.

Woody perfume
from my cedar box
saturates my senses
and wafts
for a moment in sacred air,
while cradling me
in happy memories

This sentient vault
a metal tag,
proof that you were once here.

*Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika (Xhosa)

“Nelson Mandela’s birthday is today, and the call is out for people everywhere to celebrate his birthday by acting on the idea that each person has the power to change the world.”

madiba quote

So today in honor of Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, people around the world are giving 67 minutes of their time to help another person. It’s a small gesture of solidarity with humanity and a step towards a global movement for good.

In the streets of the city
his light radiates,
in the hearts of our nation
his truth permeates.

Father of Africa,
your legacy survived,
we lift each other’s burdens,
so love can arise!

*The meaning of Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika (Xhosa) is “God (Lord) Bless Africa”

Dancing between two worlds,,

Your body is woven from the light of heaven.
Are you aware that its purity and swiftness
is the envy of angels and its courage keeps even devils away?”
― Rumi

dancing between two worlds

I am the stillness
of faint vibrations
emanating from
my soul,
where heaven and earth
in nature’s

On golden ponds
dragonflies frolic,
while heavenly language
speaks not in words
but signs
and wonders.

and I’m ushered into this
dance of belonging,
a remembrance of you.

The veil lifts
and I see
the Universe stretched out
in irresistible love,
an ethereal atmosphere
where your presence
the grief that afflicts
my heart.
