Islands of Thought

...this moment...

islands of thought beseech this mind
reflections of present and of past time
a word, a person, a vision to trace
meaning and purpose to time and place
vistas of soul in flowing quest
beauty be known lies my behest.

Islands of Thought, Watercolor, (modified original) Rose Marie Raccioppi, 2010


    if ever there were an image created in the likeness of the endless power of ocean and sky that reflects the deepest mysteries of our hearts, spirits, souls, wisdom, glory and fears, darkness and light. and the movement - swirl - dance of one's life - it is here, today, in this image, only enhanced by your words. My God! I am humbled in your presence of beauty and creativity.
    Love to you

  2. Rose Marie, I could get lost in the painting. Thank you for this perfectly echoed response.

  3. Dear Gail and Linda,

    Thank you for sharing in this most present joy. Last night when creating the image for this post, it was a feeling of suspension, a flowing PRESENCE, knowingly embracing my intent. The feel of the Creator's love, the gifts so endowed upon us, were held in reverent gratitude. The colors of water, the vistas of the heavens, this resplendent flow to BE and share. It is the vision, the spirit, the music, to be known, to be felt, to be lived.

  4. So many images in the painting.
    I have added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit my blog and become a follower also.

  5. Stan, Thank you and I did accept your invitation. Indeed my pleasure.

    Best always with love,
    Rose Marie
