Six word Saturday

Silent distractions float across the skies…

silent treasures




“With stillness comes the benediction of Peace.”
― Eckhart TolleA New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose


He dismantled my ego
and carved out my pretence,
renewed my sense of holiness,
decreed that i am blessed!

He embraced me with compassion,
another way of seeing,
freed me from compulsions,
then repose engulfed my being!

Made powerless through adversity,
i was calmed in the storm,
i grew to love my sacredness,
and silence my outer form!

He wrapped me in His kindness,
with joy beyond my words,
quietened my ranting,
until stillness was all i heard………..

Whispers from on high

“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”

caught up

i’m caught up in the moment,
captured by the song,
of effervescent laughter
a place where i belong.

within the fragrant cosmos,
whispers on the breeze,
running through the forests
trying to live in ease.

letting the stars contain me
on tranquil moonlit nights,
singing with cycadas
in the glow of candlelight.

connected to creation,
of velvet skies above,
i hear the ocean breathing
and know that i’m enough.

Rewriting Melodies

“You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
Except the one in which you belong.”
― David Whyte

timeless limits
Detached from worldly substance,
she felt a sense of loss.
She scrambled through the rubble
of all that had been false.
On relinquishing the bonds,
of distorted entities,
she moved towards the center,
into truthful destiny.
She tore the grubby garments
from her misshapen image,
and wrapped herself in cleansing light,
beyond timeless limits.
She released destructive personas
that did not belong,
and began to rewrite melodies
of her Anima’s song.
The stillness in her essence
was unveiled without form.
She danced with boundless gratitude
onto pathways,


a sea of holy breath

sea of holy breath

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”
― Eckhart TolleThe Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

if i’m in a sea
it’s a sea of holy breath
an ocean of translucent love..
gossamer winds
of synchronicity
revive me..
benevolence pours over me
and i’m infused with
transforming rain..
comforting mists
of belonging
envelope me in tranquility..
i inhale
and i am inhaled..
surrounded by acceptance..
light infiltrates
and resonates..
i wallow in kindness
and compassion…..
