DRAGONFLY...




DRAGONFLY...
dragonfly dragonfly
upon its wings I ride
with the wind’s whispers
with the touch of the sun
with the shimmer of the light
with the grace of BEING
with the call, the call of flight.

MOODS of BEING...



MOODS of BEING…

the thunderous rain upon rooftops
the cresting waves of the sea
the brooks, streams and rivers
known within they be

the warming passion of the sun
the flowers in blooming frivolity
the winds that whisper secrets
known within they be

the earth that holds to will
the mountains that call to me
the plains and valleys in offerings of grace
known within they be

the sunrise, the sunset.
time an ever present decree
the clouds, the storms, the quakes
known within they be.

the call, the beckoning, the quest defined
the vision, the light, the promise to see
the past, the present, ever the NOW
known within they be.

A W A K E N E D ...


A W A K E N E D ...

Awakened to the flutter of wings
Awakened to the song bird song
Such lilting grace to greet the dawn
Rising light upon bloom and tree
Wondrous joy in all to see
Nature in its expressions divine
Breath of Being ever yours, ever mine
Hold to the blessings of sounding grace
Within our hearts to lovingly place
Be these the gifts of our days
Creation’s love in soaring PRAISE.

For a moment join me... Interlude...


For a moment join me...
Interlude

Lilting be the sounding of cresting waves and the music of the wind
The feel of waters that ebb and flow to the call of the moon
Implacable is this sea in its surging spirit
Motion becomes still in its turbulent wake
Time becomes suspended in grace
An interlude, a breath, and the sigh of BEING.
