Sound becomes Light ~ REMEMBER

 A sound, and so we remember, 

the  gentleness of a time past

A sound, and so we come to be 

of this moment, a memory cast

A sound, and within a pulsing, 

a beckoning be it felt, be it heard

A feeling, a memory, a vision known, 

all within the voiceless word

Notes, chords, of reflections, reverie,

 to invite our imagination divine 

Supernal sounding within becomes light,

 conceived be HIS, yours, and mine 

And we embrace what we feel, what we perceive, 

what calls within to be true 

In offerings of sound, your light, your love, your heart  

becomes known anew.

A pulsing heart, fingers call to sounding strings of grace,

remember, and the NOW becomes the light of All

Thank You Dear Michael Wilson Evrard 

Blessed You Be.



Yours to additionally Enjoy

Rhapsody in Blue ~ The Music, The Artistry , the Passion

Be this received as an event... the orchestra, the artist, the poet, the New York City bred gal ... in expressive accord ... across years ... and in the NOW...

Rhapsody in Blue, APOGEE Vibrational Art, ©Rose Marie Raccioppi, https://thesoundinglight.blogspot.com
Do Enjoy... the music that inspired the painting ❤.
And here the words in reflection of moons ago... Yes, this in the blood of this New York City born and bred gal... ❤
Feel the pulse, the drama, the visions, the echoes of NYC in a canvas of sounding rapture...

Rhapsody in Blue
The Sounding City
The hum of cars, sounding horns
Tongues of many languages
Bright lights, fancy clothes
Saturday nights in memory
This Manhattan reverie
Rhapsody in Blue
The sound of feet on tenement steps
The radio heard from next door
This and eternal moments more
Rhapsody in Blue
The running of numbers
The shoe shine stand
Police car sirens
Dancehall music
Yes, New York City
Be it in reflections ever grand
Rhapsody in Blue
A vision beyond the alley window
Beyond what the street life demands
Rhapsody in Blue.

Snow here in Tappan, New York ~ Winter's touch of time

A gossamer veil of gentle wind, snow and light
Settled and cloaked in crystal strokes of white
Delicate be these touches upon barren branch and bough
Beauty to behold be the snow's silent vow
A hush, a pause, define this morning's domain
Nature's splendor holds its special claim
The faint song of wind upon chime
Heralds a welcome melody to Winter's touch of time.

We are the WEAVERS ~ Threads of Time

We are the WEAVERS
Threads of Time

we gave a cry and all rejoiced for this our birth complete
we are our first steps greeted with open arms
our first word that brought an admiring smile.

trace the years and their memories await anew
a montage, a kaleidoscope, of one's life view
sounds, impressions, of place time and moments sweet
where our dreams and our days come to meet
praise, punishment, joy and pain come to define
a life known as rightly yours, a life lived as mine
and what brings reason to pause this very day
but the wondrous Creation given by Life along its way
a breath, be it Life's endearing embrace
upon a time line of memories now to place
decades of moons have brought mystery and delight
magical be this waxing and waning of Creation's light
and so this heart, this soul, in time's grasp and claim
be held in the spirit and glory of our Creator's name
be it of yesterdays or days yet, our dreams enfold
each new gaze, a breath, a sigh, be this our story told
with threads of time Life's cloak we to weave
BE the warp and weft of DIVINITY and TRUTH conceived.

*Note: Warp and Weft are the two basic components used in weaving to turn thread or yarn into fabric. The lengthwise or longitudinal, warp yarns are held stationary in tension on a frame or loom, while the transverse, weft yarn is drawn through, thread by thread, over and under the warp.
And so it is, the vertical, the warp, be that which is of DIVINITY... as Above, so Below, for the GOOD of the ONE. The in/out within the horizontal, the weft, be that which is of TIME and SPACE, for the JOURNEY of the SELF.

This for You Michael Wilson Evrard

Beyond My Will

The moon shall wax and wane and so shall rise the sun
Beyond my will it shall be done
From many directions winds to ever blow
Beyond my will waves shall crest, the tides shall ebb and flow
Trees in constant change, new, growing, majestic, towering high
Beyond my will the brilliant splendor of light in a supernal sky.

Heart Prayer... an inner flame...the light...


pulsing pulsing be this heart
first breath and life bears its earthly start
heart prayer, an inner light, a flame
passion, faith and truth in glory name
this sounding PRESENCE be it in PRAISE
for the treasure of time and blessed days
the knowing, the questioning within embers there be
the glow of GOD's light, blessings aflame from THEE.
