Interlude... at my window...

Interlude…  2:55 PM ~ At My Window in Tappan, New York
Sweet rain sounding 
Gem colored leaves in libation’s grace
Brilliant crimson dogwood at my window
Branch and bough holding to the light of the sun
This the season of fall fulfilling its vow
This the moment, this the moment, NOW...

And NOW at: 3:38 PM...
The bright sun and clear lambent sky
Glistens the rain touched gems of color
Leaves newly brilliant in the wake of light
Moment majestic in the wake of change
This the season of fall fulfilling its vow
This the moment, this the moment, NOW...

Dreams Enfold

sweet slumber dreams enfold
heart and soul to behold
within depths of dark newly conceived
to the dawning light I AM received
to the dawning light I AM received.

An October Moment

the gentle chill of early fall
the touch of orange and crimson
leaves rustle whispers to the soft wind
the yet green grass lush and sweetly fragrant
the bloom of flowers in gem tones
yellow sapphire, red garnet, orange carnelian
in the near distance sculptures of angels
herald they their song of praise 
cascading vines embrace the weathered wood fence
waters sounding as they fall to the pond
to the delight of the swimming koi
a walk to the garden
holding to the magic of fairy tales and stories of wonder
an interlude as the sunset hour is soon to be
an October moment reminds us of the summer that was
and the fall in all its presence of glory
in all its presence of glory.

Alchemic Distillation...

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

                                         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.

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
