“Thought creates fields”


“Thought creates fields”

What be this nature of THOUGHT … be it as its name calls to the realms of each letter… be it of…
Imagine the ‘field’ that is created from adherence to such calls. We to awaken to the calling petitions… to the fields of all possibilities… to where consciousness allows TRUTH to reign supreme.
across the fields of time and space
upon a path of light to trace
sky and earth and destiny be
the calling, the calling of Spirit's decree.

Gypsy Girl with a Basque Drum

the gypsy in her soul in gentle repose
the dance, the music in reflective grace
held be she by thought and creed
held be she by thought and creed.

Gypsy Girl With a Basque Drum, painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1867.

In ways yet to be understood I hold a deep connection to the way of the Gypsy. As a young girl, I would dress as a gypsy and dance with joy. I gave expression to what was not fully understood by my family... and so the identity with this beautiful painting of a TRUTH I lived.

Eternal be the light…


shadows of dark, quelled they be
by the glistening moonlight upon the sea
by the stars in their twinkling light on high
by the rising sun in the dawning sky
sun, moon, stars, in vistas above
eternal be the light, the light of God's love.

Don I

don I the royal robes of resolve, shed I the cloak of despair
know I the grace, the blessings, the light of God's loving care
when oppression and fear beckon to this heart
from blessed grace, the knowing of love, neer I shall depart
upon my soul a golden shield of everlasting light and love
this with eyes to earth and eyes to the heavens above
be I of breath in the presence of the NOW
be I of spirit in an eternal vow 
to the divinity of love and grace, the soul in expressions shown
be this the bloom, the bounty, the breath, the beauty of BEING known.

When visualizing, "royal robes of resolve..." I envisioned a robe of violet velvet that caught the light, shoulder decoration and tassels of brilliant gold, symbolic of crown energies, and the graces of alchemy, regal, stately, and flowing. I was not aware that a flower existed that mirrored what was perceived, nor bore the name, "Royal Robe." 
The poem was fully penned when I set to search for a fitting image. When found within a flower, I felt deeply validated, blessed and grateful. Within the words of my poem its beauty was conceived. 

Beauty beheld,

Libation's Grace


Libation's Grace 

the tear shed
the rain fallen
the sun to rise
night rains and so flowing waters be
upon gardens, fields and onto the sea
earth and roots to the dawning light behold
heaven's sweet libation be this day's story told
the light beyond loss and despair
'tis the way and glory of our Lord's care
ebb and flow a constant upon life's shore
known be this blessed libation evermore
sweet be our offering, this grace to live
to libation's call our heart to give.
