As the Sun sets this Sunday... Of BEING...



Of BEING

     Sparks of soul have lit aflame
          Fires of passions unbridled
               Visions of light and enchanted being
                    Sounds of savor sing spirit’s call
                        This moment eternal breath abides
                            The quest in the clutches of grace
                                The knowing in the domain of beauty
                                    The blessings in words of divinity
                                        The freedom as destiny in fulfillment
                                             The feel of BEING 
                                                  Of BEING
                                                       Of BEING
                                                             Of BEING.

S I M P L Y ...


Simply...
This day in May, at this hour in Tappan, New York...

All holding to the light
Sweet sounding melody of rustling leaves
Dogwood blooms carried by the gentle winds
Lambent sky and a caressing warmth
Song birds alight in lilting song
Such be this NOW of grace
All holding to the light.

Marks to Proclaim


THOTH


And what is this need
To make our mark
To leave our word
Symbols of the soul
Lines and forms
Upon surfaces vast
Of heart and hand
Be this the call 
Marks to proclaim
Proclaim
The Presence.
