Day 3 of Gratitude. What moves the breath of Joy.


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

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.

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.

Imagine… a haibun


 

IMG_0738

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

The Midnight Sea Sees


 

 

IMG_0619Midnight lays over the wide sea

All is vast in the deep of night

A surround of above and below

The Milky Way glimmers it’s light

 

A quiet unlike any is known

Barely a breeze lifts the sails

The is no horizon to be seen

Sky and sea seal the veil

 

The wait for the passage to appear

When the call comes for the way home

Above and below become all as one

At last an end to this Earthly roam

 

The wind catches the sails

Pulls across in the midnight sea

In the union for water and night

We meet coming home to all we can be

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.
