From the Pacific to the Great Lakes


jeannes little books 126

Serendipity finds the touch ancient familiar

Even in the not having made skin to skin

The familiar holds the magi’s stone vibrating

A long ago gives call to natures rising touch

 

There is no matter in how it goes or doesn’t

Way past that portal in the Awakening soul

There is a beyond yet seen by this mortal

For Earth’s call to life holds that mystery

 

And in the still of wondering of your vast Pacific

The shore that tides your here and now

The fresh lakes wrap around my mitten

Where the seasons beach upon my shores

 

Maybe touch will find us in the winter of our years

Or hold us up to the Light’s fantastic radiance

In the meet again of what we have always known

Holy is the wholeness or our wander here

 

Destiny lurks between our shores

CREATIVE VISUALIZATION… take a trip


27 Nov. 2012… yeowza!  We’re coming to the end of this month at the beginning of this day.  Considering I think time is created to sustain the duality of living here on EArth, and that time is illusionary in an Infinite Universe; I sure do give the speed of it a lot of energy and pondering.  I think I even give it a little whine, a little disgust, once in awhile.  What kind of ‘Be Here Now-ness is that?  Exactly.  It’s a rant that need not happen again.

Sippy the coffee in all it’s dark brew-ness.  I invite you to relax and let this little poetic visualization settle peace within your being.

 

DEASE LAKE SUNRISE

 Breathe.  Settle into your chair. Wiggle into the most comfortable position.  

Breathe. Let your inhales and exhales support the comfort of this moment.

There is no hurry, nothing else you have to do.  Only to be here right now.

Allow yourself to relax and let all the angst of your busy mind melt away.

Breathe into this comfort, this peace as your body gives in to the relaxation.

In your minds eye give your imagination to a beautiful  place on this Earth.

YOu know this place well, even if you only travel there in your mind.

Let yourself go there now.  Breathe yourself into this incredible place that knows only Love.

Notice the little details, the curve of the land, the smell of the sea,  the taste of the air

The palette of colors that surround you. Reach out and touch, feel, caress it.

Breathe in the glory of it all.  This is your sacred place of joy and pleasure.

It is a place for your heart to experience and expand within .

You are the only one here in the presence of this Earthly treasure. 

And only you can invite someone or thing to be present here with you.

Breathe it in and let yourself BE presence here with natures love all around you. 

You are completely safe here.  Only love resides here.  It is timeless here.

And you only have to imagine something positive and loving for it to be with you.

This is your sanctuary.  A place to give your peace of mind to and imagination to.

Breathe it all in and let every cell in your body feel it, and know it, and remember it.

And as you breathe this all in begin to feel yourself in your chair. 

Feel the comfort of your body settle in as it slowly begins to wiggle.

Your toes, your fingers, your legs.  Wiggle them.  Let your eyes open

Noticing where you are.  Feeling the peace of this journey as you come back to now.

Breathe.  Breathe in your surround as you still smell the linger of your sacred place.

Any time you wish to revisit this place.  You simply imagine it so.   It waits for you

Always, it waits for you to be present there in safety and joy, and Love.

 

Have a wonder day.

MICHIGAN… the Mitten’


Morning slipped away for the road trip home…

 

“the Mitten State”

 

 

Back roads of fields open to the sky

Garage sale signs litter the shoulder

Again the sirens of blue highways

chant their taunt and seduction

 

I manage to steer the old car

steady on the two lane,

breathing in the Summer’s

air call to Autumn

 

Farmland brings the season

to a quiet harvest.  Lack

of rain yellows trees and fields

early against the blue sky.

 

I know my Michigan.  Her

by-ways have called me

from north to south and

east to west for decades

 

Lake Huron to Lake Michigan

Ohio to Lake Superior

I slip myself into this Mitten

and snuggle my love here.

 

Grateful to hold my hand

up high and say..

“This is where I live.

This is my home.”

I LOVE MY MICHIGAN


Road TRIP.. Can I hear a Yipppeee Skipy?   oh ya… Mama gonna go to the lake.  A little lake, a sweet little lake up North where there are beautious birds and bitting bugs with bug spray, and floating on the lake, and laziness.  Reading and writing.  Giggling with the ‘Cuzin’ n’laws.  Foodie experiences, sippy the coffee.  I’ll do my best to enjoy myself.  NO.. no… don’t worry… I’ll be OK. honest.

Already the feel is shifting

The space of the road under the sky

The green fields along the back roads

Gardens expanding their goodness

In the summer heat and sweat

 

The country villages readying for

the long weekend to celebrate.

The 4th of  JUly in the red, white’n’ blue

in the crack and sparkle of the night sky

 

Taking the long way to enjoy it all

No hurry, hit a few garage sales

Stop for snacks, walk the dog in a park

Inhale all the goodness of the road trip

Trippin’ along with a summer song

 

I might follow an inviting sign

to who knows where cause I can

Under this summer sky

on theses two lanes going north,

on this Michigan day

 

I love my Michigan
