... and so the Lily ...


… and so the Lily…


sweet be this budding bloom of white
petals delicate in the favor of light
chastity, virtue, purity,  be its calling claim
this a Lily,  blessed be its given name
a bloom from a bouquet, a gift received
this the bequest of beauty conceived
and with a sweet sigh I to behold
its allure and the ancient tales told
unfolding be its endearing gift of grace
such ambrosial splendor within soul I to place.

...in appreciation ... in acknowledgment ...





A Bouquet given to me...

Blooms of divinity of white to behold
The grace of light be its story told
Petals delicate with blessings beyond conceal
Beauty of favor in adornment magical and real
Blessed be lilies given with heart's love known
Herald the splendor of thoughtfulness shown.

Egg of Gold




Alchemic be this egg of gold
Treasures within it does hold
A golden yolk of brilliant light there be
Magically floating in an embracing sea
Alchemic be this egg of gold
Within is your story yet to be told
For you too, bear a golden light of grace
Within the sea of SELF you to place.

On the Sixth Day of Christmas...


On the 6th day of Christmas ...
Six geese a-laying
Abundance be the praying
Within each gift of grace there be
Blessings of creation onto thee.

Morning Dew




Touch I the morning dew
Be this the nectar of a day new
Heed I the ambient sounds of grace
The song birds song in heart to place
The beckoning light I do feel
The gifts of creation ever so real
Blessings fill the moment, the hour, the day
’Tis the calling of divinity, “tis THE WAY.

On the 5th Day of Christmas my true love sent to me



On the 5th Day of Christmas my true love sent to me

Five golden rings
Five blessings do they bring
Each finger circled in gold ever bright
Holding splendor and wondrous light
THE WAY the first finger does call
The second seeks TRUTH for all
The third is POWER to do and be
The fourth LOVE shared with a you, a me
The fifth is GRACE divine
All in harmonious devotion mine
A hand with five golden rings
Five blessings do they bring.

Merry Christmas to All ~ Blessed Be



Merry Christmas to All
Blessed Be

Birth of light, this of divinity's care

Season of celebration with heart we to share
Adornments upon a tree, be they artifacts of love
Pray we to the sacred heavens in vistas above
Songs and merriment fill they the way

Peace and blessings, the glory of Christmas Day
A Christ Child is born, gifts from wise men of three
PRAISE, PRAISE, PRAISE
blessed be this CHILD onto Thee.
