A Sunday Pause...


Ah... the Sounding Muse... 
the pulsing rhythm of heart... 
'tis music...

Yes...

'tis music
hear I the rhythmic grace
this driving pulsing splendor of sound 
this orchestration of heart
from which love shan’t depart.

to be FREE...



To Be Free...

be bound not by the blame
be bound not by the pain

you are destined to be free

be bound not by judgments unfair
be bound not by hurtful absence of care

you are destined to be free

be bound not by lies and illusion
be bound not by the misguided conclusion

you are destined to be free

be bound not by what another may do or say
be bound not by cruel games some may play  

you are destined to be free

free to live beauty, truth and a vision clear
free to live faith, and blessings dear

free to live your dreams conceived
free to be the glory perceived

free to live and know God’s embrace
free to hold this in heart’s place

free to live a destiny true
free to live the JOY that in TRUTH is You.

S U P E R M O O N



the air still and gently cool
seductive be this darkened vista

bewitching light of the moon
corona of jeweled tones luminous
such be the rapture of this November night.

SUPERMOON ~ November, 2016...




Awakened by the brilliant light of the moon at 3:00 AM.. yet more to come...

Moon
brilliant be the full moon light

an indigo melody fills the night
the depths of darkness graced they be
by the light that calls to hearts and sea
tides and souls in cresting splendor
to this majesty of grace I surrender.



How fortuitous that this Earth is presently graced by the full moon at perigee. 
Creation offering brilliance so that we take pause and behold the glory of The Way. 
For whatever be the moods, the perceptions of humankind, the Light prevails.
…and touched we are by the grace of the Supermoon, November, 2016.

Crescendo
hear I the ambient harp song of the night
brilliant moon in its melody of light
indigo depths in light they be
onto cresting waves of ocean and sea
this wax and wane, the ebb and flow
a dance, a dance in the moon’s blazing glow
this moment a crescendo so sweetly heard
the luminous, the luminous, pulsing THE WORD.

The MOON...


wondrous light up on high
the moon in flight across the sky
brilliant orb to wax and wane
the beauty of night claims your name
 the moon a gift of grace
your light and love in heart I place
and if a moment in darkness or despair
know I the Presence of light's embracing care
the light of stars, sun and moon upon my soul ever be
this be God's WORD decreed onto me.

...to see the marvelous...


"The invariable mark of wisdom is to
see the miraculous in the common."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

the marvel of a golden leaf to fall
from that mighty tree bold and tall
the lilting melody of the song bird
within the love of heart be heard
these gifts of season and time
such be blessings of the divine
it is with grace and ardent PRAISE
that we endow our hallowed days.

The Fire The Rose


 The Fire The Rose

The fire of passion, bud, bloom and thorn they be
So too, the cresting ecstasy of ocean and sea
A rapture of being and enchantment divine
Upon this soul, ever yours, ever mine
What longing lore of love do your petals enfold
Your sweet seductive fragrance I to behold
Bloom in rapture and radiant red array
The kiss of waters upon your petals lay.
