Quiet expressions…

“Be soft, do not let the world make you hard.”― Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Oh those hues, those soft expressions.
they speak to me of gentleness and peace,
and quiet reflection.

they enfold me in love and grace
holding me as I sleep,
covering me with tenderness
watching over me when I weep…

and I wake to sapphire impressions
a glow that stays behind,
moods that lift me out of darkness
and a radiance that is
fluently kind…

“Whatever’s going on with you right now that’s inappropriate to your magnificence can be cured, helped, eliminated, made so much better. This is your lineage and we keep saying this is your mastery. Every single one of the Masters who walked this planet showed you what it is to be a Human through mastery”

Pathways to nowhere
rhythms in time,
with the divine..
feeling favor
in magical sounds,
speaking lyrics
on holy grounds..
the beauty
that guided us here,
and forgetting
the sadness
that brought despair…

Molly the sea snail…

I’ve always known that the ocean is magical,
but today for the first time,
I saw a trail of sparkles behind Molly the sea snail,
as she ducked beneath an incoming wave.
I watched her bury herself in the sand
when the tide receded,
only to come up again
like a playful child
and surf the next wave.

Amazing patterns were formed
on the sand and on the water
by Molly and a large gathering of her sea snail friends.
I had to be quick to get this shot
before she buried herself again.

“The earth is full of thresholds where beauty awaits the wonder of our gaze.”
― John O’Donohue, Divine Beauty: The Invisible Embrace

The sky speaks in colors
in textures of love,
and I am tenderly
in the magnificence of..
nights that hold
no darkness,
days filled with light,
we are one
with each particle,
favored in Her sight…

And when
the reckoning passes,
together we will sing,
we’ll reinvent
and live an eternal spring..
hope will not
be scattered,
mountains will
quietly move,
and soon we’ll be dancing,
lifted from our gloom!


Inspired by Dermot Kennedys’ song “Better Days”

Lake Pleasant…

“Take the emptiness you hold in your arms
And scatter it into the open spaces we breathe.
Maybe the birds will feel how the air is thinner,
And fly with more affection.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

I lift my eyes
to the hills
to the trees
and to pleasant lakes,
I know that I am more
than every one
of my mistakes…

And the wind
calls me worthy,
the birds
are impressed
by all of my loveliness
and thankfulness!


When I go out into the countryside
and feast my eyes on the colors,
sights and sounds,
I am released from suffering
and my need to know the answers.
In the middle of nowhere

when I catch my breath
I am so very loved

I am whole!

Bright reflections…

“To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.”
― William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

Begin to see with different eyes
the beauty that is immortalized,
as the breath of Jah
is poured out
in radiant sunbeams
from divine founts…

We are symphonies
cosmic expressions,
holy chords that need connection..

Into kindness
let’s re-awaken
knowing we are
not forsaken!

Calling out from a world that’s dim,
singing love songs
as daily hymns,
emissaries of light
brave travelers confronting the night…

Never forgetting who we are,
bright reflections from distant stars..

Go down to the waters…

“Have you also learned that secret from the river;
that there is no such thing as time?” 
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

You should really
go down to the waters,
and watch sunlight play,
walk off your heaviness
as you dream
of brighter days!
immerse yourself
in muddy pools
and look-up
at elegant trees,
chant awhile with bullfrogs
and let your emptiness ease…
let you reflection
speak to you
in tinkling sounds,
as you search the undergrowth
for the bliss
that can be found!

time will slip-away,
and nature will gladly compose
sensations of the river
and movements of gushing prose…

Recast by the light!

Skies that hold
from a higher view,
and I drink in the influence
of this perfect blue!

Are they mere distractions
in a world of fear?
I whisper to the heavens
to make my vision clear.

Enveloped by the beauty,
sea-birds shrilly call,
reminding me of favor
in messages
wispily scrawled…

understood by angels
deciphered by the winds,
I dive into the presence
closer than my skin…

And I’m held by symphonies,
a perfect pitch,
magical encounters
words that do not flinch!

I am honored by the landscape,
recast by the light,
brought back
from the brink of madness
to regain my sight…
