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

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

My Soul says “Yes”


lotus-flower-reflections-green1

My Soul say ‘Yes’

 

Heart wakes to the rise

The call to listen

Listen deep

touch deep

Feel deep

Deep

down In

below the surfaces

Out into the way beyond

 

Of the way between spaces

Of the fathomless

of no matter

care-full

in the

listen

in the listen

in the deep shallow

of the dark light reaching

Where All is One

 

Om mani padme hum

Questions and Questions and Questions in the Divine story of All things.


 

gypsy-jeanne-she-knows.jpg

Do you want to be found?

Is it about being lost?

being lonely

being ‘seen’

being heard

feeling love

dying alone

living alone

being touched?

Where will we find you?

 

Does God, or Goddess, or Spirit

Or The Oneness of All Things

The Source of what embraces

Infinity, not know where you are?

Does any of it matter?

Is this life’s go around It?

 

Bone and ash to dirt,

The Earthly temple of heart

and soul carried off to the Heavens?

Dispersed to the what and where

and the imagined want of

the Great Beyond or to nothingness?

 

Truth is tricky

Perceptions have many

angles, many views

Choose yours well

in the story you have

of what is or isn’t

In the questions that

rise and fall in the now

and ever after in the now

in the right now here

with me, you reading this

 

And I tell you

in my truth

in this my perception

In this my deepest knowing:

You are perfect

You are enough as you are

You are Love and glimmering

Light everlasting.

You are the highest good

of All that is and has ever been.

You are Divinity’s expression

 

You are the Divine Story of All Things.

MOTHER EARTH EVOLVING in the always All Ways


yesterday, I was reminded that I joined/choose here for ‘The ride’.  the Mothership is ready to shift her cloak.  How easy I make it about me in the so not about me in the everlasting.  There is a tremble inside me waiting for ecstasy.  Finding the peace of it.

~~~~~~~

Awaked, thinking of tree and root

the thick and the thin of the system

stretching

stretching the force of life beneath

holding the heat of One in quiet pulse

weaving

weaving together for Mother Earth

this sacred tribe of trees and roots

connecting

connecting in perceived silence

the long ago, on this Earth now

waiting

waiting patient in cherished grace

as a Milky Way makes her way

evolving

evolving in the must be as it does

it is the Way of how it has always been

Awakening

Awakening to the trees and roots

in the thick and the thin of a New Earth

rising

Rising up in the prayer of Oneness

everlasting for it has always been

It is always All Ways.

drink freely from life’s giving


I ‘stole’ this line from from Abbey of the Arts, Christine Valters Paintner.  www.abbeyofthearts.com

The original sentence is this;  “Drink freely from the life you have been given.”  I made it ‘mine’ by changing it a bit.  If you have time, give her website a visit.  There is something very special about Christine.

Drink freely from life’s giving

Fill up on sweetness that is not hiding

Listen to the breeze give her story

Air is every where with her knowing

 

Drink freely from life’s giving

Ease slow into the receiving

Feel vast the heart’s voice

Oneness is not wandering

 

Drink freely from life’s giving

Expand into The Way flowing

Know duality will find it’s Oneness

The Earth joins in the evolving

 

Drink freely from life’s giving

Belief will bring the seeing

Release what holds too hard

Light the way for us searching.

allowances


I think this is the longest I’ve gone with out laying out a post in the last two years.  Not for laziness.

I’m shifting.  Moving my inner workings about.  Re-calibrating.  Pondering next steps.  Anyone else feeling a new pull, a certain whisper on the wind?

For awhile it won’t be every day of diving into a moment with poetry.  I’m going to let the muse have me and wander me about in other places that words need to be written in.  I hope to allow it all to bubble and brew in this heart cauldron of mine.

Allowances

 

Wash the dishes, clean your room

feed the dog, mow the lawn

Allowances were given

 

drop the glass, forget the errand

often late, missed the plane

Allowances were given

 

In the allow of this for the giving of that

In the allow of that for the misplace of this

in doing the right thing to the forgetting

 

Open to the allow it to happen as it will

In the generosity of the space not yet filled

up with doing and mind jumble

 

Where does it matter most on the life way

that allows possibility in the night and day

of what can be seen or hides in the shadows?

 

When allowance feeds the greater good

and gives the free flow a kind radiance

that lights the way for others.
