Out of tune…

“What would you do if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?”
– John Lennon, Paul McCartney

Maybe sometimes
we just become out of tune,
like a guitar
that has lain
too long
and not been played.

All we need is a
maestro’s touch
to fine-tune our life,
to relearn the harmony
of all things,
to play again
in higher octaves of love,
and allow sounds of joy
to adjust our pitch.

Then we will know by heart
the song of our soul,
and remember
the beauty
of light within us…

Radiant show…

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us, or we find it not.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson’s Essays

you sent me joy,
you gave me flowers,
I sat and glowed
for hours
and hours…

displays in crimson,
and verdant green,
you made a garland
I was like a fairy queen…

in marshy hideouts,
you confessed
abiding love,
bathed in sunlight
showered from above…
and on bright verges
where blossoms lovingly grow,
you charmed me easily
with a radiant show…

light touched me softly
in quiet and gentle shades
I sensed
and a blushing serenade…

as I entered the holiest
of holy grounds,
in grace and beauty
I was mercifully found…
