Reinvent

“silence is the language of god,
all else is poor translation.”
― Rumi

I’m drawn into-light
the intensity of blues,
letting joy wash
over me
and catch me in its view…
allowing gentleness
to find me
fully awake
in the serene stillness
of a perfect escape…

No longer present to the harshness
of grief,
just a little soul searching
to reinvent belief.

This is a reworked piece I wrote 2 years ago…
I’m still in the process of reinventing.

Catching a glimpse…

“We are one, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist and forever will recreate one another.”
― Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Catching a glimpse
in a whimsical moment,
falling in love
with just a part
of an entire universe
of color.

the substance of love
has a movement of grace
when the water
touches the sky.

and I am part of this whole,
in a gathering
of something
truly beautiful!

Step into the sunlight

“Grace is the permanent climate of divine kindness; the perennial infusion of springtime into the winter of bleakness.”
― John O’Donohue, Divine Beauty: The Invisible Embrace

Step into the sunlight,
walk on holy grounds,
even in great suffering,
grace can still be found.
on muddy embankments
kindness is ever near,
the lapping of the waters will wash away our fears.
and we’ll see
a bright tomorrow
after the rains,
joy will come out
to meet us
and faith will be reclaimed…

Intentional…

I sit here in wonder
about life..
dreamlike images
before my eyes
I pass through movements
letting light spin
with bright-colored feelings
all over my skin..
measures of sunlight
float across
the room,
nimbly seeking me
while joy quietly blooms…

I had some fun with this image,
playing with “ICM” or intentional camera movement.

“Soul speak”

“Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.”
― John O’Donohue

when words bubble up
from streams of consciousness
I am aware of their magic.

I feel blessed by an affinity to light.
but sometimes I get plugged up
with mediocrity and
shallowness,
unable to call up the magic.

Unfavored in my endeavors to rekindle prose,
I become frightened
that the words will never return.
I look into my abyss of madness
and my senses remind me
that light is always present.

It’s my connection to the mystical
my connection to grace and love
it’s a supernatural resonance
that springs forth from my own darkness
and decorates these pages with joy.

I call it “soul speak”

Blushing beauties

flowers bowed in worship
to the rain gods
that brought them back to life,
their face softly glowing in the morning light.
gazing into the sun
they grow into blushing beauties
unable to live and be abundant
without the energy of light
so they let it in…

We had a heatwave this past weekend and no flowers budded on this bush for a while.
It was predicted to be 38 C but luckily we live near the coast
and we had a blanket of sea mist keeping us cool.

Meet me where flower beds are gentle…

Meet me at a place of love,
a reunion,
where hearts need no words to speak
and grace is measureless…

let’s chant together sweet melodies
that release us from our dark obsessions.

Let’s go where flower beds are gentle
and lands grow fertile with joy…

where dance is everlasting
and our anthems are heard among the constellations.
