And this THE MOMENT..

And this THE MOMENT..
hear, hear, the heart to proclaim
rejoice, rejoice, in the Lord's name
who listens, who listens, to a loving plea
who chooses, who chooses, JOY that is meant to be
within the flight of angels to vistas above
within the soaring of soul in the splendor of love
this THE MOMENT in grace be it known
in each gift of BEING be it shown.

S P R I N G... a loving Thank You...

hear the song of the songbird
feel the quiver of grass new
be touched by the golden light of bloom and sun
listen to the silent sounding of budding leaf
behold the beauty, tulips they be
a bouquet of colors, a magical array, gifted onto me
and in their adornment of time and space
the message of creation within heart to place
the delicate expression of bloom to fill our days
the Creator's artistry, passion, power and praise
 hues bold, warm, vibrant, and delicately divine
gifted onto us in this season of grace, the NOW of time.

Peeking Green

Peeking Green

Peeking green through melted snow
Winds of winter in whispers yet blow
A sounding serenade through barren branches heard
And the coveted song of a nesting songbird
The crisp leaves of Fall's season yet found
With broken twigs upon this awaiting ground
Driving rains upon emergent buds of green
Winter giving over to Spring in this moment seen
Felt is the quiver below my feet
Pulsing be Mother Earth as Spring she greets.

Child Born of ARIES...

And so it is said of this child born of Aries, March birth... 
Sign of the RAM...
"Rose Marie, you have the soul of a mystic, 
philosopher and wisdom keeper."

"Your 7 Life Path reveals your secret inner gifts, strengths and talents. 7 is the number of introspection, intuition and truth. You are on a constant quest for knowledge and wisdom. Your gift is deeply understanding others and seeking the truth, no matter how challenging. This is your destiny."

Indeed so... TRUTH, as that which holds 
Treasure, Resolve, Union, Trust, Harmony... 
within the gift of BEING... within the SOUL of SELF...
