The Age of a Day


DSCN8674

Slip into the day awakening

Of morning in her coral yawn

Of Autumn Sun rising

Of sky with dabbled clouds

Afloat in blue.

 

It started that way in the no breeze of stillness.  A calm of no movement of branch or leaf.

A morning that flirts with blue sky and sunny possibilities. Only to meld the dabbled clouds

In one blank shade of grey that smells of rain that must be given.

 

And so it gives in sprinkles that spat in a slow giving that made way for the afternoon to chill.

Of falling acorns that riddle the roof with the scamper of squirrels that make ready a season

Tucking into the cozy of hearth to laze the day in comfort.

 

As slow as it goes the speed of life picks up as age becomes of many decades lived.

Where youth took her time to unfold in the waiting forever for what was next to come

It comes faster now as the ever after calls from Infinity’s landscape

 

Afloat in blue

of sky with dabbled clouds

Of  Autumn Sun rising

Of morning in her coral yawn

Slips into the day wakening.

ON THE FOURTH DAY OF AUTUMN MYSELF SAID TO ME…


GLENA ARBOR 07 042

 

On the fourth day of Autumn myself said to meeeeeee

Feel the nippy chilly

Hear the squirrels a racing

Watch the leafies turning

Breathe the change a comin

Allow it All in and BEeeeee

 

Hope it doesn’t go too fast, Hope it stays awhile

Autumn with her dancing spice

Wears her colours in my favorite style

 

There’s something in the air that’s right

There’s something that flows in my blood

When Autumn finds her days and nights

Her harvest season brings quiet light

 

I think it’s the nippy chilly

the pound of squirrels across the roof

The brilliance of leaves that fall

My breath caught up in smoke

 

Hope it doesn’t go too fast, Hope it stays awhile

Autumn with her dancing spice

Wears her colours in my favorite style

AUTUMN’S CALL


 

DSCN4779

A week has come and gone, with no feeling that time made such a quick departure from days tiding away into the sea of yesterdays.  There is no holding on to it, on this sand shore, turning to see the spice of red and gold, orange, and green, waving from the woods, calling from the beach into The Autumn of life.   With all that Sun pouring on the pulsing brilliance of a forest in Autumn’s seductive allure, Feeling the wave of it enfold in the breathy chill of this Season in the acceptance of it.  The call is loud and will not be ignored.  Thank the Goddess that I am becoming my favorite Season.

 

The days whip on by

Late Autumn is this body

Winter circles life

lean in… come closer


IMG_2728

Days ago, I was inspired by my astrology friend Teri Parsley Starnes,( here is her blog, take a visit and you may read the article that inspired me.  http://starsdanceastrology.blogspot.com/ : ) to consider the idea of ‘leaning in” too.  Tho’ I take it to a different place (sort of) cause I’m not feeling a ‘lose of heart’ , I still found those two words stirred me up.  I made comment to it and she furthered shared this with me.

“Pema Chodron writes about ‘leaning in” too.  She wrote:  “  The next time you lose heart and you can’t bear to experience what your’re feeling, you might recall this instruction…  Change the way you see it, and Lean In.  Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances or on our weakness, we can choose to stay present and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it, not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves,  This is priceless advice the addresses the true cause of suffering – yours, mine, and that of all living beings.

 

Thank you Teri.

Lean in, come closer

There is plenty here next to me

Abundance knows no limit

And empty readies for filling

 

Lean in, come closer

Settle in to love’s safety

Let wisdom pass silent between us

And the long dry finds moisture

 

Lean in, come closer

Soften the edges of try too hard

Lay your linger to gratitude

For you are enough as you are

 

Lean in, come closer

Need sometimes desires comfort

As She passes her cloud over you

And the Sun makes for a new day

 

Lean in, come closer

I will always love you forever after

As twilight calls us Home

And I lean into you like I always have

Imagine… a haibun

Imagine… anything you like.  There is No limit.  No one to tell you can or can’t or how big or little you can imagine.  Imagine… Anything.  Create it in your minds eye as if it IS.  It’s as real as you imagine it to be. Breathe it in to your mind.  It is your creation, only as limited as you imagine it to be.  GO BIG even if it feels insignificant, even if it feels impossible, even if you feel you aren’t powerful enough, creative enough, good enough… do it anyway.  Pretend.  Imagine.  Give yourself this free moment to imagine…. ANyThinG.

Thoughts are manifested all around you.  Take a look.  Someone thought it and here it is. Creation is happening in ever millisecond, maybe faster.  It’s one Huge Universe and you have the power to be as creative as you believe yourself to be.  AS PowerFUll as you believe yourself to be.  Power that is not over, rather in perfect sync with all of Creation that is happening right now.

See it in your minds eye. Does it have a smell?  Maybe ya wanna taste it.  What does it feel like?  Is it colourful?  It is a thing, an object?  Does it yet exist in the world?  Maybe it’s a thought, a philosophy, a hope, a dream.  Maybe it’s a wish for peace, and end to illness, a new world view.  Sculpt it as you wish it to be.  Give it every glorious, loving passionate thought you have ever imagined.  BELIEVE it to be.  Know it already exists cause your thoughts are powerful.

You are creative tool of the Universe.  IMagine…

 

Make peace in the world

Imagine loves light everywhere

Make peace in the world
