Six-Word Saturday…

sprinklings of joy in remote places…

Merciful light…

“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.”

merciful light

You touched me
your merciful light,
when weariness
set in
and I took fright…
You stood
beside me
through all my fears,
the darkness,
collected my tears…
And the inspiration
of heaven’s glow,
in breathless auras
of an infinite flow…

Happy Thanksgiving…

“May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.”
― John O’Donohue, Eternal Echoes: Celtic Reflections on Our Yearning to Belong

There’s a silence
within me,
that keeps on growing,
a deep forbearance
a gradual knowing…

It’s peace
that saturates
my whole being,
feelings of love,
universal believing…

It’s light
from each
living thing,
a holy presence
touching my skin…

It’s a credence
that shuns
the taste of doubt,
a sacred spillage,
a turnabout…

when faced with grief
and earthly woes,
it’s Jah’s benevolence
finding repose…

it’s all my days
numbered by grace,
anthems sung
from a desolate place…

Even bitterness
cannot snuff out light,
extravagant forgiveness
restores my sight…

And when gratitude is freely expressed
there is a sense
of being
divinely blessed…

I found a clearing…

“When you are standing in that forest of sorrow, you cannot imagine that you could ever find your way to a better place. But if someone can assure you that they themselves have stood in that same place, and now have moved on, sometimes this will bring hope”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love


I was left behind
in foreboding woods,
enquiring of dreams
in eerie hoods…

Feeling pain deep in my being,
the somber resonance of the unseen.
In the wilds of heartache, darkness compels
in times of gatherings,
of secret spells…

Trampled down by condescending tongues
the voices turned into a distant hum…

And I found a clearing in the trees
and prayed until my sorrow eased…

the suffering of undaunted souls, on grounds of courage where death arose…

In conscious thought
in memories,
our lives assuaged by testimonies…

of broken souls
made wise by grief,
sages who speak of mystical beliefs…

Cosmic Dance…

I touched
warm waters,
my heart
in my hand…
wading in the shallows
I felt earth expand…

In sacred moments,
you are everywhere,
a cosmic dancer,
without a care..

and waters lapped
over my broken heart,
with emotion…
I became a part
of all
that was and ever shall be
a swimmer
in a supernatural sea…

Living in the in-between…

art by elke

Let’s live in the in-between,
in the spaces unseen…
Where nightbirds
lull us back to sleep,
and hearts immerse
in silver streams…

In the ambiance
of an overflow,
implanted with peace
we gladly grow,
and become
with translucent light,
in dreams
throughout the night…

we will hold
to eternal grace
look fear squarely
in the face…
and live in the in-betweens
where love’s harvest
is increased,
where fairies dance
and moonbeams shine,
and all life needs
is to take the time…

to breathe in
mystical sights…
an abundance
of faith will suffice…
living in the in-betweens,
where hope
really intervenes…
And when
we lay
our form
to rest,
in connection
we are truly blessed…

Shadow dancers…

shadow dancers 3

Shadow dancers
on the shore,
flowing with Earth’s encore,
gliding over silver sands,
in graceful lands…

nimbly stepping
ocean mists,
keeping watch
while tides shift,
seeing beyond this mortal coil,
beyond chaos,
beyond turmoil!

Peering into mystical realms,
above the breakers,
past the swells.
Where darkness
gives way to light,
and every Earthling
