make way for what thrills your soul


 

DEASE LAKE FULL MOON

Make way for what thrills your soul

Cradling the chaos and fear like

a mother who loves her child

pouring out the love and light

when darkness makes way to threat

and the world collides her grief

in an ocean of extinction

 

Make way for what thrills your soul

when the fabric of life tears at the center

to bleed great loss and betrayal

puddling the sea at your feet

Treading the night looking for stars

in the great beyond that holds your light

waiting for you gather It All

 

Make way for what thrills your soul

for everything else is passing

and but a flash of yesterday

and not one true glimpse of tomorrow

Now holds the breath of you.

Inhale deep the air that we all breath

Be here now.

AUTUMN_O3_4

Gratitude given moves the breath of Joy

Inhale the sweetness of the world made better

In the follow of passion made sacred by doing

Taking moments for what fills your cup

 

Inhale the sweetness of the world made better

Pouring and filling all that makes a grateful life

Taking moments for what fills your cup

Revealing what makes sacred your days

 

Pouring and filling all that makes a grateful life

Everlasting is Creation’s blissful passion

Revealing what makes sacred your days.

Glory in the Sunshine on Autumns leaves

 

Everlasting is Creation’s blissful passion

In the follow of passion made sacred by doing

Glory in the Sunshine on Autumn’s leaves

Gratitude given moves the breath of Joy.

Into the Labyrinth


IMG_2907

I walked the Labyrinth under

the blaze of the Arizona sun

Walked it in sacred ritual

Some of the ash of their bodies

I took and tapped them on my flesh

over my heart.  My loved Ones

I tap…tap.. tap their ash

Rubbed them in a clockwise circle

imagining

The mix of their ash and my flesh

all pale grey with small bits of bone

I push the chards hard in to feel

seeping into my skin,

seeping into my heart

 

Pinches of them in each turn

I give to the desert dry circle

like puffs of smoke caught

in the heat  of a frail breeze

carried north to heaven

in the mingle of desert and stone

A prayer to their return back to

where we all came from beyond the

biblical ash of some said Gensis

told for the story of Adam and Eve

So much more vast in the dark

heavenly light of Creation unfolding.

 

I give a prayer in each turn

in the sprinkle of the surety

of our meeting again in the forever

As souls will do in the Infinite

Limitless connection of Oneness

Remember now my love in the

everlasting when I recognize you

both again as we mingle in the

heavens

Wearing the rosy pink… A pantoum


If I breathe into the day, let it rise in me even if the Sun is hiding, I can imagine what ever I want.  I can replace any Imagery I fancy to make my inner vision respond to what I choose to feel.

It’s not about avoidance, it’s about when the overwhelm of it needs some calm, needs some Sun light gracing all those Autumn leave in joyful spice for my joy to have it’s moments.

NEW ART 2 002

I am the rosy pink of this morning’s sky

The precursor to the sun rising to greet the day

I hide behind the grey gloom wearing my pink sky

The Sun will burn away the gloom

 

The precursor to the Sun rising to greet the day

Blue sky and midnight stars find me

The Sun will burn away the gloom

And the black night will give sparkle

 

Blue sky and midnight stars find me

All unfolds and opens to the highest good

And the black night will give sparkle

In the morning to be wrapped in Sun rising

 

All unfolds and opens to the highest good

Making way for a lover’s tremble

In the morning to be wrapped in Sun light rising

Allowing in what is meant to heal

 

Making way for a lover’s tremble

I hide behind the grey gloom wearing my pink sky

Allowing in what is meant to heal

I am the rosy pink of the morning sky

Radiant Reaping


DSCN1768

 

There need not be any grim in the reaping.

 

The close, the sweep, the gathering up, scattered

lays to the Earth the compost of what new

might become from the rich loam of what

has departed.

 

The thing is, is in the attachment to what

at last gave fruit, and needs in the end

of harvest to be laid back to Earth

was of skin and bone.

 

Heart to heart connection that no Autumn’s

coming Winter could foretell the loss caught

in the stream of tears carried away on a river

to another land.

Grief floods the shores of this land a salty sea

and in the one day not long from now

my ship will see you on the shore sunning

a radiant wave

 

A gestured call to share our Light again

reaping the radiance of our time together

again in how love holds the heart forever

in the always-has-been

GRATITUDE = HAPPINESS say it out loud


Dorje n Frisbee

Facebook friends give great gifts sometimes ,sent out in little reminders:  Photos, websites, poetry, wise words of joy, goodness, positive, soul-full vibes, that remind me of the importance of living a life of happiness supported in deep gratitude.   Gratitude for the many many wonders around and within me.

Below, is something I’d like to share with you this Tuesday, the first of October.

 

http://www.upworthy.com/scientists-discover-one-of-the-greatest-contributing-factors-to-happiness-youll-thank-me?g=2&c=fea

 

In this moment …

 

I am grateful for the three lovely young people who share my salon with me,  Samantha, Cat, and Andy.

I am great-full for sharing these past 15 years with my beloved little dog Dorje.

I am great-full for my beloved friends, Bridget and Alan who remind me that I am forever loved.

I am grateful to Diane for her good heart, her loyalty, and her unconditional support

I am great-full for my mother, ‘Chappo’, my stepdad Jack, for in their passing, tho’ sad, they passed on to

me gifts that help me.

 

Heart held to gratitude’s celestial laughter

Joy’s Wisdom a glittering cloak of Happiness

Every moment has a gift to be held and cherished

Say it out loud.  Say it out loud for us all to hear.

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.
