Eyes Turned Skyward

Ascending ever changing sky and light
Wondrous by day, wondrous by night
Ever present waves of color crest and enfold
In awe be this celestial sea of soul.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

For once you have tasted flight
you will walk the earth
with your eyes turned skywards,

for there you have been and there you long to return.

  1. Hi Rosemarie-

    your words are purposeful and true - the image is glorious - and just the right blend of a beautiful mystery of color and surprise I need this night to escape my fear. I see by the fragment images that the fear rises too but it is consumed by color and light and darkness so it's intensity disperses, fades and is surrounded - "thank you"

    Love Gail

  2. Gail, Your response is indeed a poetic encounter and one received with loving `♥´ gratitude.

  3. Rose Marie, I see no fear, only light and it is calling me home...Hugs

  4. Bernie, It is "like calling me home" in many a way - and so the Da Vinci quote. Hugs `♥´ Hugs.

  5. Such beautiful words as always. I can just invision the light coming into the darkness.
    Take care, Rose Marie.

  6. I woke up in the middle of the night and went out to look at the sky. So amazing, our sky. Crystal clear and inspiring in a way that the usual late night sky isn't. (Not that the sky isn't always inspiring!) Lovely words for a lovely image.

  7. Hi Rose Marie!! The sea of soul...what a wonderful image that conjurs! :)

  8. DaVinci was really a prophet of sorts!

  9. So much JOY this day...

    Choices, Yes, ever the light, darkness is but a veil...

    Catvibe, you will find more and more to offer you inspiration - all for the taking...

    Rain, the feeling of the sky in the sea and the sea in the sky and so "celestial sea of soul."

    Brian, Thank you - LIFE is...

    Otin, Leonardo da Vinci was art, music, poetry, discovery, invention, philosophy - with SELF as a knowing guide and reverence for all of life - its creation, its revelation, its expression. His, the mind of the seer, the hand of the creator. I have learned by his word and by his inspired works. Thank you for being here Otin, you are deeply appreciated.

  10. 'Celestial sea of soul' - It is in those waters we all ought to swim.

  11. justdoodleit, Thank you and there our spirit shall meet.`♥´
