Tappan Witch... Happy... Happy...

Yes it is this special day...

Trick or Treat here they come
Today is sure Halloween Fun!!
Knock, knock who goes there
The Tappan Witch with goodies fair
So welcomed you surely are
Be you from here near or there far
And a Halloween treat mighty fine
Awaits you at this door any time 
Soon I will be again flying high
Look for me there up in the sky
Upon my broom I shall be
Give a wave I am sure to see!

This 5 o'clock hour in Tappan, New York...

The setting sun casting a luminous glow
The light held by leaves in alchemic grace
A stillness
The breath of time
And all IS

Gentle be the wind
Heard is the song bird
The scamper of squirrels
The soft rustle of leaves
And all IS

The hour beckons
A pause
An interlude
Sweet moments of reverie
And all IS.

the abiding Aspiration,
        the known Splendor,

                                                      the I AM ,
                                           the revealed Omnipresence, 
                                                  the soul felt Need...

... this the call to ASCENSION... each letter in defined BEING. 
This the MAGENTA RAY.

A D R E A M ... climbing mountains, tending fields, harvesting, riding the river... and a voice proclaims...

A   D R E A M ... climbing mountains, tending fields, harvesting,
 riding the river... and a voice proclaims...

YES, you are a child of the mountains
Of the fields, farms and rivers
Of the sun, moon and stars
You are the voice of the winds
The delight of a budding flower
The flight of the eagle
The delicate soaring of the butterfly
YES, you are all color all light
You are the sound in PRAISE
You are the pen in expression
You are the brush strokes in creation
You A R E ... Aspiration ~ Revelation ~ Eternal.

and then the awakening... the BEING.

Sweet Surrender, APOGEE Vibrational Art,

Dressed in Hues...

Glowing russet and golden array
Reflections upon waters in beauty this day
Jewels of color and the grace of light
Beckoned by the call of season's flight
Dressed in hues lavish, 'tis Fall we hail
Within hearts the gift of time to prevail
As branch and bough hold to the wind
A dance there BE
Leaves of color in rustling sounds
Echo they the silence of the tree.

Gems of Grace here in Tappan, New York...

Crimson, russet, and tones of gold
Be the splendor of Autumn gentle and bold
Leaves of color holding to sun's light
They to the wind in willing flight
Gathered upon the ground a treasure to bring
A blanket until the coming of Spring
Barren trees soon to welcome Winter's call
Such gems of grace the gifts of Fall.

Above Earth's Plains...

The night has brought an outer body dream journey... 

upon awakening a deep knowing of breath 

Above Earth's Plains...

Under the shroud of sleep
Timeless moments
Inner realms dispelling limitation 

All pervasive Being
Above Earth's plains
Beyond all mountains
In flight across the heavens
Held not by gravity
Within the burning light
That cannot be contained
The shroud of sleep lifted
And I awakened to time
A vibrant peace
An all sounding silence
I shall descent no more
Into the lower realms
Of deceptive thought.
all sound silence
all color light
all sensibilities peace
all life breath
all awareness rapture
all knowing truth
all truth beauty.

The lightly simple
The dramatic
The etherial
A triune of offering
A reflective journey in sound heard
Hold I its silence and its calling word
A river of memories in a cascading flow
The naming in defined measure
A pulsing, the breath is felt
The heart in resounding accord
Rhythmic in its echoes of BEING
A frivolity, this dance of liberation's quest and quail
It becomes and IS
The melding, the welding of structure in sounding form
Ascending spirit in waves
Welcomed be the light in its moment of revelation
Feel I the depth and the touch of sweet notes
Reverie and the moment gently unveiled
The pause, the silence, the ALL, the ONE
Heart's chambers speak the knowing
The Music The Music.

The Twinning of the Ponds ~ October 2, 2014

The Twinning of the Ponds
October 2, 2014
Moons past and across the seas
FAITH anew marks heartfelt decrees
A community joined in celebration
Hallowed be the dedication
To life held in Creation's embrace
Memories within heart ever to place
Reverent BE our deep knowing wise
Never never shall be lived such demise
Each life its own special abiding quest
We the guardians of life's behest
And with love and a giving hand
Be the glory of God's command
Sacred words be they read, be they heard
Resounding FAITH echoes echoes as heart's word
our Fearlessness
our Aspiration
the I AM Presence
the Truth
the Heart ...
the Birth
the Eternal ... this granted onto ALL.

Camp Venture Memorial “Pond of the 200,000” behind the LIU/Venture Center building on Route 340 in Sparkill, New York. It’s a memorial to the 200,000 handicapped people Hitler had killed as “Useless Eaters” unworthy of life, and to “Twin” it with the Memorial Ash Pond of Auschwitz, today in dedication.
