Blue skies…

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”
― Eleanora Duse

blue skies

I’m taking time
to find my way
amid the noise
and decay…
to know the silence of just being…
and flourish
into deeper meaning.

Transmuted by divine light
to find myself
with cosmic sight.
believing again
mystical eyes,
each moment of grace supplied…

To Anna…

To my beloved godmother Anna ♡


She stepped into glory
her feet off the ground,
with heavenly anthems
and joyful sounds… Her mother
Her sister
Her husband was there,
delighted by her arrival
great love everywhere…
She blinked in the radiance
not believing her eyes,
when she saw their faces
not a tear did she cry… All suffering was gone,
her form became bright
in the splendor of eternity
perfect in His sight… A magnificent human
touched by the divine
living her years out
fully alive… Always happy to see me
she had real flare,
we’d hit the town,
like millionaires…
“Maybe anchovy toast
or Cappuccinos and cake,
We’ll spoil our figures,
Oh dear, it’s too late!
Maybe try on some dresses,
I’ll help with the zip,
But oh my darling
It won’t
go over my hips…
Let’s splash out and buy some woolies treats
It won’t really matter
if we have a little cheat
You only live once
I would hear her say
Let’s enjoy the blessings
of another day… I’ll miss your magnificence
and your elegant style
your sense of humor,
and endearing smile…
Your kindness
Your generosity
Your repartee
I’ll treasure the moments
each happy memory… Go and rock heaven and enjoy the feast,
with resplendent soirees
that never cease… I know your safe in the arms of our Lord
above heavenly throngs
can you hear my applause?…

To love is to cover all wounds…

“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”― Mahatma Gandhi

to love is to cover all wounds

To love ♡
is to cover all wounds
with the fragrance of the sweetest perfume…
Scattered on holy winds
a treasure found
in simple things
Where gratitude is overheard
in the delight of forgiving words…
Inhaled by the majestic Earth
Coalescing with her blessed mirth!

I merged into light…

“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.”
― Hafiz of Shiraz


I touched down in starlight and gathered its glow,
I stumbled into
the presence
of divine overflow… and when darkness threatened,
I merged into light,
in resplendent overtones that illuminate
the night…

When the canvas frays
in the currach of thought
and a stain of ocean
blackens beneath you,
may there come across the waters
a path of yellow moonlight
to bring you safely home…
― John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

delirious 2

Grief ebbs and flows,
I’m engorged with despair,
caught in the headlights
of this spellbinding glare…

Welling up with sorrow
I descend to the depths,
bloated and pitiful
I gasp for breath…

Faint lamentations
of a delirious mind,
in my greatest fear
I have been enshrined…

…and I set my soul to the rhythm of song,
a deeper understanding
of heavenly throngs…
