Alchemic Distillation...


A transformation is being called upon... and so in an alchemic distillation … 
F E A R  be then the golden light of ...

                                         Faith
                                         Evolution
                                         Ascension
                                         Revelation ... the glory of BEING... 
                                                                                           in the awakening 
                                                                                                 of unity and love.

The Wondrous


There is ever the wondrous in life
The ways of nature in expression
The gift of seed
The beauty of bloom
The blessings of bounty
Pay heed, pay heed, the breath
The receiving, the giving
This of Earth, this of Being.



Interface, breath as one, APOGEE Vibrational Art, ©Rose Marie Raccioppi, The Sounding Light Collection.
On Exhibit/Sale at the Tappan Free-Library, Tappan, New York for the month of September, 2016.

Apollo with his Lyre


Held in the arms of spirit
Your lyre sounds in delight

The strings touched by a knowing hand
Grace, truth and beauty in loving command
The harmonies of heart to be heard
Concordant be they with sacred word
Strum the chords of the heavens above
Heed  the blessings of divinity’s love.

About the National Archaeological Museum in Naples

Situated in the center of Naples, in the 16th-century Palazzo degli Studi, the National Archaeological Museum holds one of the most important collections of classical antiquities, as well as the mosaics, frescoes, and statues discovered at Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae. The origins of the museum go back to 1777, when King Ferdinand IV conceived of a new institution for the arts in Naples and created the Real Museo Borbonico. The museum continued to grow through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with the incorporation of other collections, as well as finds from the numerous excavations at ancient sites throughout the region.

Naples is my motherland. Rose Marie Raccioppi

the heart, the rose...



the heart, the rose its calling heard
within its chambers, its petals, echoes, echoes, of THE WORD
listen I do, grace, beauty, and faith, its call ever sweet
the giving, the receiving, each breath a flower to meet
beyond all perceived pain, loss and fear
is the call to life and beauty with blessings dear
heed its wisdom and the beauty of its eternal quest
TRUTH, LOVE, PASSION, life's blessed behest
the heart, the rose its calling heard
within its chambers, its petals, echoes, echoes, of THE WORD.

Pink Floyd... The Wall...Echoes... Pulse...





Pink Floyd... The Wall...Echoes... Pulse... 

words, music, song, call to our BEING yet wise
heed the plea to rise beyond perpetrated demise 
not a brick in the wall am I to be
beyond daunting echoes lies the origin, the truth of me
feel I the pulse, passions in calling refrain
this the SELF beyond the confine, beyond the inane
words, music, song, call to our BEING yet wise
heed the plea to rise beyond perpetrated demise.

This Flame


This Flame

an inner light, a flame
passion, faith and truth in glory name
this pulsing PRESENCE be it in PRAISE
for the treasure of time and blessed days
a body, a mind, a spirit, a soul
a life in pursuit of purpose, a vision, a goal
alchemic be a thought and a knowing divine
blessed BE this flame of grace, yours and mine.



... the law of attraction... the accord...
