The Counsel of TIME

I AM this moment PAST
I AM this moment NOW
For what ever was IS
Embrace I the pain, the pleasure
Appreciate I the awareness, the aspiration
Feel I the soaring, the silence sweet
Live I its trials, its TRUTH, its treasure of BEING
I AM this moment PAST
I AM this moment NOW
I AM all TIME...

The Sounding Sea Within ~ as featured in the Summer 2015 issue of Body Magazine...

The Implacable Sea

Live I the implacable sea
A flowing spirit lies within
Know I the tides of change
This the cresting wave of BEING.
thoughts that probe the depths of existence
waves that crest the longings of the heart
oceans that flow with the knowing grace of soul
perceptions from time eternal
this inner call that echoes from the core of self
ever present passion, quest, a knowing divinity
listen, heed the resounding implacable sea within
the light of mind, the sounding of heart, the PRESENCE of BEING.

In Accord... TOTEMS of SELF... Consciousness and BEING...

a natural object or animal believed to have spiritual significance and adopted as an emblem.


If indeed I am the RAM, opposition holds no fear
If a FROG, I am confident in my transformation
If a DOVE, I know the power of peace
If a ROBIN. I am itself splendor
If a TIGER, I am protection
If a HAWK, I am the soaring flight
If an EAGLE, I live freedom's quest
And as ROSE MARIE, I am passion's flower of the sea...

TOTEMS... TOTEMS...ONE and All I BE...


What longing lore of love do your petals enfold
Your sweet seductive fragrance I to behold
Bloom in rapture and radiant red array
The kiss of waters upon your petals lay.
