Six word Saturday

She began to feel her heartbeat….



Love’s domain

May your prayer of listening deepen enough
to hear in the depths the laughter of god.”
― John O’DonohueTo Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings


Can love be felt
in a luminous sun,
or the moon’s liquid glow?
Can I dip my soul in a tranquil tide,
and feel
love’s affection flow!

While flowers wave
in vibrant tones
and sway tenderly in the breeze,
there’s the sound
of sweet nothings
whispering in effervescent trees!

I’m kissed by leafy foliage,
and buoyant butterflies.
And when its dark,
night birds sing,
in delightful lullabies!

when coverings of endearment
close my weary eyes,
bright stars nurture every dream,
as on my bed I lie!

I Listen to His laughter
in tempestuous winds at night,
each sacred remembrance captures
the intensity of light!

To wake at dawn
with songbirds,
taping on my windowpane.
Though tears
have soaked
my pillow,
I will soar in love’s domain!

Harmonies of brightness

Though we cannot see you with outward eyes,
We know our soul’s gaze is upon your face,
Smiling back at us from within everything
To which we bring our best refinement.
― John O’DonohueAnam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

wish you were here

Is happiness elusive
when we’re carved out in grief?
Do portholes open,
so memories can receive
a breakthrough of sunshine
on the gloomiest days
to fill hearts with gladness
and even a little praise!

In between the sorrow
we permit ourselves to smile,
and let miracles hold us
in joy for just a while!

We cannot forget the heartache
raging through our being,
though harmonies of brightness
show signs are still receiving,
each Earthling’s sacred essence
full of hopes and dreams
there’s more to this Universe
than hearts can conceive!

Look at the sparkling wonderment,
faint whisperings in the dark
feeling divine rhapsodies
of souls that left their mark!

Traces in the sunrise
and birds that understand,
the symphony of heaven
glory’s great expanse!

Fields of forgetfulness

“At the deepest level of Being, you are one with all that is”
― Eckhart TolleThe Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

fields of flowers

butterflies fluttering
in open fields,
i sight forgetfulness
among the weeds!

living the moment
and all it contains,
a breakthrough of promise,
my hope remains!

birds chatter as loud
as they please,
mellow configurations
under the trees.

i gaze upwards
at the vast expanse,
and watch clouds assemble
for a sacred dance!


“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
― Kahlil Gibran

love still exists

tears are crystal droplets
of prayer,
watering the ground
of my despair.
ravines of mercy,
down my face,
flooding this parched
and broken place.
holy splashes, unshroud my eyes,
it’s your essence
i memorize,
sorrow’s reservoir, so sublime,
i’m submerged in heaven’s design……
