Close up!

Look closely at nature,
she’s teeming with life
Feel her vibrations
and you’ll know
that you’re divine!

At still of twilight…

At still of twilight
when daylight fades
and night birds
quietly
serenade,
gentle infusions
kiss the skies,
a blaze of crimson
harmonized
by the deep colors
embed in my being,
of glory
and of visions unseen.
Along the road
where repose awaits,
I brim with
a joy
that easily translates
into moods of quietude
moments of time,
gatherings of beauty
glimpses divine…

Touch down

“Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the World.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

We touch-down
on light
we dance on holy grounds,
for the sake
of true confession
grace abounds…
And light and dark
are complimentary
calling us to faith,
bringing us into favor
with a glorious embrace,
where joy is celebrated
and fear is unseen,
in a movement of particles
we are unified in peace…

Country roads

Country roads
are a cure for the blues,
lilies of the valley
and summertime hues,
roadside attractions
lead me astray
with heart connections
among the vlei…

I knelt down
by the side of the road,
and I felt the landscape
take my load…
embedded in joy
enrobed in light,
arum lilies
are my delight!

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,
gold
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
kindness
and a blushing serenade…

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

Nature’s child

“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein

On muddy embankments
where wild things roam
I have a deep sense
of being home.

Among the reeds
down by the waters,
on my knees
before nature’s altar.

On hallowed grounds
where heaven meets earth
my heart is connected
to holy mirth!
