Today I post after a long break since my last post. While I read many post as they came into my email. I made a conscious decision to focus on my spiritual practice within me. Many of you knew I had a fabulous trip to China. While I went to a country I did not know and I did not know what to expect, I found a new and higher level of spiritual awakening.

So it is time for me to turn back outward and reignite my passion for writing spiritual poetry. Thank you all for your wonderful, wise and often needed words. I choose to follow many blogs that lift me up and keep me focused on the light of God. You each play a valuable part in my support system and in my spiritual confidence to stay focused. Namaste!

In early June I was blessed with another award nomination by Tanumoy Biswas the Nomadic Soliquist. Tanumoy nominated me for the “Galore A foursome Treat,” Award. While I have been delayed in posting I am most appreciative and blessed to have this honor.

Tanumoy has a very vibrant and enjoyable site. He is a poet, philosopher and an artist. You’ll love the music that plays as you get drawn into his words. One of the striking things for me about Tanumoy and his site is the thought that goes into every banner, and saying he post. One such banner reads, “The unexamined life is not worth living” by Socrates. At first I thought how wrong, every life is worth living. Yet, each time I have come to his site this message has been unraveling a deeper understanding.  As I look back within my own life I recognize the truth of these words. I once went through life with monotony and living to expectations I did not understand nor did I believe them to be my own. It took looking deep within to find myself and to embrace the great joy of living.  So the wisdom of Tanumoy’s site is forever unfolding in me and I thank him for this wonderful blessing.

Dawning Day

Under the dawning day

The tree reaches its limbs to the igniting sky.

Darkness of night quietly fades,

Into the colors of the breaking haze.

The morning mist the Lord’s gentle kiss

Lands softly upon the world’s lips.

In a single form

A tree exist,

In a cluster the woods grow

into a community the life energy flows.

The roots of the tree are embedded deep

Into the core of the heart of the earth.

The roots are nourished

From the mineral floor.

Within the tree a world of life exist

A world of unity and community,

Perfectly thought out by the Lord.

Every life form loved and adored.

Every life form a gift for all to see.

Every plant and tree,

Every insect and animal,

Every drop of water,

A perfect spiritual divinity.

Listen as the snow falls,

Watch as it glistens in the rising sun,

Feel the softness of this early Christmas morn.

This is the Lord’s creation and reminder of the season’s glow.

For today like so many years ago,

We celebrate the birth of a babe being born.

On that first Christmas morn,

He lay wrapped in swaddling clothes,

And slept in a crib of hay.

The gifts this child brings are greater than any he received.

For Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh,

Are treasures from the Earth.

The Christ Child a gift of Love,

Peace and Eternal life of the Lord Above.


I wrote this poem between 1974 and 76.  I still remember sitting on my bed watching the early snow fall on a Christmas Morning.  Over the years it is interesting to see how my thoughts and spirituality has defined the Christ Child within my heart and mind.  As a young nurse caring for children with cancer and AIDS I know Christ to deliver these children into the light.  I heard many children tell me and their families “Jesus is here for me”.  Sometimes children saw him as a child others as an adult and occasion baby Jesus came to take them home.  So for years, I knew Jesus as the Shepard of Children.

Now so many years later I have looked at my understanding of Christ.  Yes a Child of God….just as I.  A human… that roamed this earth…just as I.   A man who transcended the human level of consciousness and paved the way for you and I to join him in the Christ Consciousness.   A teacher….A healer…a miracle maker…A divine Creation of God…with the Essence of God flowing through him.

Blue Aurora

Blue Aurora – Grundarfjörður, Iceland – Peerakit Jirachetthakun

featured on photobotos.com 12/8/2012


A burst of color in the sky,

The Aurora a Diva of the Divine,

A Roman Goddess of the Dawn

Ignites the sky in a majestic cry.

To announce the sun and the coming day

The beauty of the Aurora paves the way.

Whether blue or green,

She sings her praise,

With a heart full of love

The world is lite from above.

The beauty of the night sky

Is a reminder of the Divine.

The Spirit of the Universe

Is where all good is birthed.

Breathe in the essence of the dawning day

And allow your Spirit to guide you on your way.

A breath immersed within the winds or gentlest of breeze.

A breath that ignites the Spirit

To glow within the human breed.

Touch of Light (French Massif) – Grand Galibier, French Alps – Photographer, Simone Miotto

The light of God forever shines.

Upon the mountains,

And illuminates the rocky climb.

The clouds a divine haze,

Etches images

In the sunny gaze.

From tranquility to turbulence

The core of the Lord

Lies within the tumulus earth.

The essence of God in everything

Is the beating heart that pumps

The oceans, rivers and streams.

The heart that feeds the plants and trees.

Quenches the human and animal

Spiritual need.

The essence of God so visible to all

Yet, human eyes refuse to see

The splendor of our Lord lives in everything.

Powerscout Waterfall Ireland

“Powerscout Waterfall” – Wicklow Mountains, Ireland –

Flip Kos – Featured Photographer   www.photobotos.com  June 4, 2012

A trickle of love runs through the heart with each beat.

I shed a single tear as I weep.

An ache withers in pain.

Pain exists on the earthly plane.

A babbling brook overflows in the rain.

There is no shame.

There is no pain.

A gush of love swells the vein.

A heart bounds within a frame.

The water fall cascades in the earthly plane.

A song in the heart

Dances in the brain.

Love exists on every plane.

Many Blessings!

Hi Everyone,

As the end of the month is approaching I have found myself a little behind in my work.  Since starting this blog I spend many hours reviewing other blogs and working on my poems.  Since I am self-employed this approach felt to be working for a while and now I have deadlines fast approaching.   So I will return as soon as I am caught up.  Very soon!  At that time I will address the awards and will let the writing flow.  This is just a gentle reminder that I need to balance my life and my passions.  Wishing you many blessings!
