...This Moment... the music of NOW...



the sacred gift of this moment
sun in warming brilliance
air fresh, scented with the grass green and lush
an array of beauty to behold
flowers of mystical form and grace
leaves speaking the gentle winds
sky a lambent blue of pure light
branch, bough, leaf, a songbird song
this outside my open window known
be this the sacred dance, the music of NOW...

At my front door...


At my front door blooms there be
An array of colors to greet thee
Blessings be known in such delight
They of God's loving spirit and light.

P A U S E ...


A breath, a sigh, a P A U S E… and so then to paper 
this the way of this poet of Aries birth
moved she is by reflections… past, present and yet to be 
moved by the silence, moved by all there is 
and so expressed be 
P A U S E
Passion, Aspiration, Unity, Spirit, Exchange, 
in words that echo the heart, in words that call to the soul. 

When in the travels of time you choose to 
P A U S E
do allow my invitation to be known
 each poetic offering a
 P A U S E.

Monday Morning here in Tappan, New York... 'Tis Green .. Nature's Way...


thunderous be the night
sounding rains, flashes of light
gardens in libation sweet
the morning new the sun to greet
grass, leaves of trees, and blooms there be
lush be the green of each towering tree
flowers in colors of brilliant array
be this the glory of Nature's Way.

Joyous Awakening

A Saturday Morning in Tappan 

The sweet song of the song bird
Heard is the lilting grace
The rising sun
Felt is the splendor of light
The grass lush and new
Felt is the joy of Mother Earth
Flowers in opulent bloom
Be these the smiles of Creation
Such be the treasures of this presence
Embraced within the folds of the warming sun
And I a child of Aries
In a joyous awakening to BEING.

This very day…



In my garden flowers in full bloom
With delight now they grace my dinning room
Such splendor and beauty to behold
This be one of Creation’s story told
Delicate petals of color and light
Gathered in loving praise and pure delight
Lush green leaves in majestic array
So be the gifts of Spring this very day.

PHILOSOPHY... The POET...



A student of PHILOSOPHY…– the love of wisdom – and what is it that I was brought to more deeply appreciate, to be willing to be guided by, to embrace as an ideology… a WORD of letters, of sounding, of conceived meaning, each letter a part of the whole that calls for attention… and so, in presentation, each letter as it has come to define the calling truths of PHILOSOPHY… those of ancient times, those of Eastern thinkers, those of Western thinkers … be it that of…
     Passion
          Harmony

               Inspiration
                    Love
                        Omnipresence
                             Spirit
                                 Openness
                                      Praise 
                                          Honor
                                              Yielding… 

to heart, to soul, to BEING.

... what BE the guidance, the visions held by each philosopher that identifies with each calling letter of PHILOSOPHY...this the question that defines my inquiry, my exploration, and the quest that prevails.

With the full splendor of SPRING... green in lush array... I found myself called to what it is that brings Nature to manifest its beauty... is there a PHILOSOPHY that Nature is meant to guide us to? And so I took to the WORD... its revelation delicate, powerful, embracing, indeed TRUTH calling!! 

...the POET... the PHILOSOPHER .... The commonality be the letters, P...O..E... within the two. Yes, each in response to Passion, to Omnipresence, to Exchange..., the T... be it known by the POET, and yet to be found by the PHILOSOPHER?? And when a POET,  and when a PHILOSOPHER,  or a student of PHILOSOPHY .... is it not TRUTH that is sought?
