A W A K E N E D ...


A W A K E N E D ...

Awakened to the flutter of wings
Awakened to the song bird song
Such lilting grace to greet the dawn
Rising light upon bloom and tree
Wondrous joy in all to see
Nature in its expressions divine
Breath of Being ever yours, ever mine
Hold to the blessings of sounding grace
Within our hearts to lovingly place
Be these the gifts of our days
Creation’s love in soaring PRAISE.

For a moment join me... Interlude...


For a moment join me...
Interlude

Lilting be the sounding of cresting waves and the music of the wind
The feel of waters that ebb and flow to the call of the moon
Implacable is this sea in its surging spirit
Motion becomes still in its turbulent wake
Time becomes suspended in grace
An interlude, a breath, and the sigh of BEING.

A Jewel of Golden Yellow


A lens that captures the Gems and Light of Creation… 
Rick Bunting, Photographer  

Thank You… Rose Marie Raccioppi

A Jewel of Golden Yellow

Hear the welcoming call to Spring
Beauty,  bloom, nesting, it does bring
Of brilliant color and light this Warbler be
A jewel of golden yellow, spirit’s alchemy
In flight is felt the grace of gold
Creation’s frolic be the story told
Creation’s frolic be the story told.

Spoils of Spring ...





"Sunshine, Ragged Robin blooming and the first Monarch of the year........PRICELESS!! "

~ Rick Bunting

Spoils of Spring

Such delicate and bold beauty to behold
And so the spoils of Spring unfold
Our heart held in soaring flight
Touched by the Creator's gifting light
Delicate be these petals in bloom divine
Captured be this moment in the NOW of time
Wings to flutter, to fly, in colors of majestic grace
Behold the grandeur, within your soul to place.
