Live like it’s heaven on Earth…

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

The soft winds blow me
back to surrender,
unraveling grief
this sweet November.

on heavy footsteps
I break dry earth
I’m falling
falling..

into a gentle return!

We are the
incandescence of eternal love
a manifestation
of what is spoken of..

by the God of our understanding and celestial beings,
as endless euphonies
of what is unseen…

We came to earth
to complete a task,
to blossom in love,
to learn contrast..

Never forgetting our eternal home,
constantly guided
never alone!

And when our days come to pass,
we’ll return again
to the sacred dance…

recapture your groove…

In order to understand the dance, one must be still. And in order to truly understand stillness one must dance..
-Rumi

Leonard Cohen’s song ” Dance me to the end of love” inspired me to write this….

dance to the rhythm of the flowers and the trees,
let the mood embrace you
as you dance with the breeze…

feel the tempo move you
to resonate with sound,
even as your body swirls and breathlessness abounds…

love will fall down on you and bring you back to life,
dance with the holiness
of everything divine…

in Autumn
in Summer
when Winter turns to Spring,
dance in the embers of your suffering…

darkness will scatter
as light fills your lungs,
voices will echo and speak in holy tongues…

dance in communion
with your mother the earth,
twirl through the chaos until silence is heard…

dance to the measure of an endless love,
spin until you understand
what grace is made of…

be a whirling dervish
let your thoughts take flight,
dance with the magic of a moonlit night…

birds will fly heavenward on mystical wings,
let your anthem fill the skies
as your body swings…

ageless  
timeless
dance fills the air,
exhale very slowly to remove the despair…

little by little, your spirit will begin to move,
enter the stillness
and recapture your groove…

Secret Gardens…

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

When we were in Cape Town, we stayed opposite a house where friends used to live. It had been sold, and was left almost derelict. As I peeked through the fence it brought back a flood of memories…

A grand old lady,
she once stood tall,
with the echo of laughter
within her walls…
garden parties
and peach champagne,
children dancing
unrestrained…

soirees in the afternoons
Shania Twain
made us swoon…
and we sang the songs
of yesteryear,
drenched by halcyon atmospheres…

days that seemed so simple
and nights filled
with stars,
now we ponder our reflections,
and recall
who we are…

magical creatures
attracted to light,
sojourners of these lands,
pilgrims
and worshipers
of a great expanse…

though overgrown
with weeds,
she’d seen
better days,
her light still emanates
and her grounds
remember praise…

Let’s reimagine favor
and reappoint cheer,
live as if it’s heaven on earth,
and hold each moment dear…

our beings are built for motion,
and we must comply,
as we live inside the changes
like strange butterflies…

Rocking the daisies…

rocking the daisies

I lay down with the daisies,
like they were my kin,
against the soft grass
of union,
we knew not sin…

gently rocking me
they whispered
secret vows,
fulfilling a longing,
while the trees quietly bowed…

Combined with their essence,
they foreknew my soul,
they colored me
in loveliness,
my face they did extol…

And as our breath
mingled
in a triumphant dance,
the air blew cold
and scattered,
it was a wild romance…

in the softness
of surrender
I forgot my place,
was this
the euphoria
of a lover’s embrace?

as they enhanced me
with pigment,
and divine accord,
lying on the embankment
I knew
I was simply adored…

I’m kissed by the moon…

walk in on magic

Sometimes
I walk in on magic,
the kind
that gently blends…
It scatters
somber fragments,
and delicately
transcends…
Caressing me
with pastels,
I’m kissed
by the moon,
and I dance
in its aura
across the
caramel dunes…
I bask in the softness
of opaline shades,
saturated by wonder,
I watch
as daylight fades…

Standing on the edge of time…

“There is a whole other world here as well, operating in higher vibration”
― Paul Selig, The Book of Truth: The Mastery Trilogy: Book II

cosmic tidesStanding on the edge
of time
with no reason
or rhyme…

just to touch
the cosmic seas,
as kindness
pours down
with ease…

to feel the thunder
of changing tides,
and grasp the
moment
as love abides…

to see
movement
in the vast expanse,
and be given to
this sacred
dance…

If I had wings…

summer soltice

If I had wings
I would fly to you,
over dark vistas,
passed Timbuktu…

I’d walk
on rooftops
just to see your face,
search crowds
until I feel
your embrace…

If I had wings,
you would see
me shine,
We’d be like souls
from primordial times…

carrying childish memories
of dance halls
and sacred treasuries…
