“Of worth I have no season no story left to tell.”

Of hope I have all reason to leave the living hell.

A paper thin skin with little good to give,

no protection from the illusions my life did spin.

Shed of me my ego’s shallow shell.

Leave me basting in purgatory’s well.

My skinless corpse of eons of age,

With more hope than at any other phase

my soul a blaze from the eternal light

My frosted heart melts from the love of God’s sight.

Wrapped in luminous light is this soul’s new flight.

The breath of the lord is the wind that soars.

“My wilderness afire wings are raised immortal to the night”

For my spirit to live forever in light.

The beauty of poetry is in the message to the reader…while it comes from the depth of heart and soul of the poet, it reaches the ears of others and resonates within them as they can and need to hear.

Tightrope of Divine Life

•*¨*•¸¸¸.•*¨*•☆ •*¨*•¸¸¸.•*¨*•

There is a man,
Who walks the tightrope of Divine Life,
A man with knowledge of the gift of light.
On the tightrope,
It is the ego’s shallow need
That denies the spirit a chance to breathe.
Using a voice to speak of light,
The ego weaves an illusion of belief.
So hidden in plain sight
Is a man who writes and writes,
Speaking of life with in the light.
So beautifully he leads,
The most trusting Souls.
Enamored,
I give him my heart of gold.
What a wondrous man
He must be,
With a Spirit
Of Divine Purity.
The goal of human life
to live with in the light
A place of joy and love
A human’s eternal right.
So leave the path
And the shallow hold.
Surrender the ego
To honor your Soul. 😉

I would like to share today 2 poems that I wrote last year and posted in March.  They are a duet or I call them a “poetic couplet.”  They are meant to be read together as they express my love for Spirit.

Still Pond

It is in the whisper of the willow that I hear your words;
And in the reflection of the water that I see your face.
The ripples that dance across still pond
Reveal our Divine bond.
As I gaze into the sky I see you winking back at me.
You who has painted sun and clouds so perfectly,
Bathed in warmth of a luminous light,
From within I know all things are aright. .
It is at this moment that I am one with Thee.
It is my knowing that all you do is for the love of me.
Today I kneel in my garden that blooms.
With outstretch arms I embrace my Heavenly Groom.
It is with my words that you so graciously gave,
I now speak this poem in loving praise.

Dance In The Night

Sitting in Darkness I feel you running through my hair,

Like fingers twirling with an intimate loving care.

I look into your eyes as I watch the sparkling of the stars.

And feel your essence consume me.

As I listen to your words in rhythm of the chimes,

I settle into the silence feeling our love entwined.

The crickets are humming a love song so sweet.

I slowly rise to my feet.

You take my hand as we dance to their song.

Swaying and moving me along.

You bring me deep into your essence of life,

It is there I meld in a blissful delight.

It is a dance we have performed so often before,

And in this moment Lord our divine love is eternally adorn.

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.

Cathedral Park Holy Tree

Holy Tree (Cathedral Park) – Portland, Oregon – Yvonne Mestre

Posted on Photobotos.com 11/4/2012

Under the willow

A mother weeps

As she buries her child

Beneath her feet.

The Queen of Heaven

Stands at her side

As she wipes

The tears from her eyes.

The shoots of the willow

The mother ties.

With a wish in her heart

She pleads to the tree

For the release of her grief.

An enchanted tree

The willow weeps

Its limbs hang low

With the heavy leaves.

The shoots whip when the winds blow.

As the priest and priestess pray

For ills to fade away.

As the poet lays to sleep

Beneath the willow the dreams do grow

As the words of the poem start to flow.

The magical tree the willow heals

Those who weep.

And eases the pain

From their tormented sleep.

To bring serenity to the sea of tears

To bring harmony within the earthly sphere.

With the sway of the willow shoots

The mother releases her fears.

Beneath the moon

The willow grows

In love the tree bows it head

To the souls of the dead.

With its arms it embraces

The mother who stands beneath the tree.

And cloaks the poet who lay to dream.

Mothers weep all around the world for the loss of a child.  In many cases it is to violence and hate.  These are senseless acts and in tribute to all mothers who experience a loss of a child I am reposting this poem.  The beautiful picture was on www.photobotos.com today and when I saw the picture I knew I wanted to share the picture and the poem with you.   Many blessings to all who have experienced the loss of a loved one.   Poem originally posted on May 14, 2012

A girl so young, innocent and sweet,

With a voice that rebounds through the streets.

Her song for girls and women across her land,

Give dreams of freedom

To those that wish they can.

Through Spirits eyes she reads a book,

Through divine mind she learns to write,

Through the voice of God she valiantly chants,

For the rights of women within her land.

•*¨*•¸¸¸.•*¨*•☆

One young girl with THE POWER within,

Can topple the reign of hate.

The voice of the Lord’s messenger

Valiantly creates.

It is from divinity expressed

In perfect natural form,

That freedom is born!

Inspired love from around the world

Embraces Malala tight,

Raising her soul

Within the Lords luminous light.

•*¨*•¸¸¸.•*¨*•☆

A girl so young and innocent

With a voice that resonates around the world.

It is her voice of truth and love,

That has great power the evil dream of.

It is her voice we hear in our heart,

It is her voice that will never be quelled,

For the Lord has spoken the truth to all.

And within her heart

The Lord’s words do swell.

The Lord’s message will forever be sung

Lovingly around the world.

It is within the voice of this enchanted girl.

A girl so young, innocent and sweet

With a voice that rebounds through the streets.

Her song for girls and women across her land,

Give freedom to those that wish they can.

•*¨*•¸¸¸.•*¨*•☆

Her soul so innocent and pure

A gift from the Lord.

Her life a threat to evil

Is a strength they deplore.

There is no Lord,

Supporting their war.

It is a war within their mind,

It is a war that supports their hate.

To give them power over those that fear.

To eliminate the love and goodness

Of the people they disintegrate.

The Lords message will forever be sung

Lovingly around the world.

It is within the voice of this enchanted girl.

Around the world and through the heart of all

The power of love and healing given by THE ALL

Raises Malala from this tragic day,

So her voice will speak the words of God once more.

No evil can take away

What God has given as destiny.

•*¨*•¸¸¸.•*¨*•☆

A girl so young, innocent and sweet

With a voice that rebounds through the streets.

Her song for girls and women across her land

Give freedom to those that wish they can.

It’s time for all around the world

To stand and raise our arms.

With our eyes on God,

And heart open wide,

Let the Spirit move hate aside.

It is our thoughts and deeds

That raise the love

And brings evil crumbling to its knees…

It is our choice to free those we love

It is our choice to take back our land.

Hand in hand, heart in heart,

Call upon the Lord

To clear the way

For Love to manifest

Perfectly today.

Silent Reflection

Silent Reflection (HDR) – Loch Rusky, Scotland – Karl Williams

photo posted on Photobotos.com 9/23/2012

There is a silent reflection of the world turned upside down,

In a thought cloud spinning the universe,

Around and around.

A cloud of confusion, loss and hate,

A cloud that must dissipate.

Within the heart of God tears do fall,

As the love of humans turns to hate,

Unrest breeds and denies Divine fate.

In the sadness of human life,

The beauty of God deserted by man.

The beauty still there is hidden by hate.

It is the chains of anger and greed,

That created this cloud spinning the world

Into a place we cannot retreat.

The rays of the sun and moon vibrate alone,

The life within whittled down to the bone.

The colors of flowers fading without light,

As the human arms are raised to fight.

Within our hearts and mind God cries to us,

“Put down the guns and turn from hate…

For I cannot allow this cloud to procreate.”

All that is…is within the mind of the All,

And the ALL can never fall.

So on the earth where the humans live,

Where free choice a gift may soon not exist.

Within God, hate will not grow.

As the Spirit is the essence of All.

Human life exist within the mind of God,

And hate and greed will succumb to Divine fate.

The Lord will save his beloved souls from the human fight.

As the earth spins away

Leaving the cloud to dissipate.

It is with sadness in my heart that today, International Day of Peace, is filled with anger and hate all around the world.  The most recent events of the American Film maker and his video has deliberately and intentionally hurt others.  I am so blessed to live in America where I have the freedom of speech, yet, with that freedom come great accountability to use words for the good of all.   No American has the right to use their privilege to hurt others.   I am also blessed with another great gift…the gift given by the Divine…by God.  The “FREEDOM TO CHOOSE,’ …today I choose love…I choose to use my words to deny anger, turn from hate, to love my brothers and sisters around the world.  You are all my family…Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, and all religions, we are one in this incredible universe.  We are one all connected through our hearts and love for God.

Several weeks ago I started working on this poem.  It was different for me and I was not sure where it was coming from.  As Peace day was approaching I know I would post it today.  Then the violence started.  Now I know, through prayer and meditation I have been called to reach out to all of you to join in hearts of love to denounce the violence.  I ask each of you to write something special today for Peace.  Boldly and confidently ask all your followers, friends, and family to put in their consciousness, thoughts and words of Peace…Use prayer…use meditation…use your words and thoughts to raise the peace vibrations around the world.  If we all start today with this we can spread the peace to millions very quickly.    I will use the words “peace…and world peace,” in mediation for the next few days and possibly weeks and months until the hurt is healed.   Regardless of where we live, or what our life situation is, we all have free choice…the choice to love, the choice to respect, the choice to embrace the beauty and divine nature of others.

Millions of stars sparkle in the sky.

Lighting the night, for human wishes to glide.

Under the stars the poets dream,

Lovers love, and conceive wishful things.

Stars illuminate the night,

Filling the earth with hope and light.

Upon the earth the humans roam,

Looking high into the night.

With wonder in their minds

They wish on the stars shinning bright.

They dream a dream

That all in the universe is alright.

What if the stars in the sky started to fight?

Grabbing and seizing each other’s light.

Seeing only what the other has,

And what they think they might.

With guns, tanks, and missiles,

The stars fight a selfish fight,

Extinguishing each other’s light.

Upon the earth the darkness falls.

Dimming the love and dreams of all.

Now, what if the stars looked down upon the earth,

And see trillions of humans as energy burst.

With great energy the earth does shine…

And the beauty grows like autumn sweet on a leafy vine.

Now what if, within that sight,

The stars watch the humans fight.

Wars between races, religions, and nationalities,

Spilled blood fills the land and water ways.

Waterfalls of misery cascade along the earth.

And the beauty once there,

Now violently fading away.

So perhaps the story should be told

That the stars shine bright each and every night.

The humans live with harmony flowing from heart to heart.

And love ignites both the sky and land,

And the universe of God flourishes.

So if you look up in the sky,

Or the stars look down on the land,

All will shine with Spirits Divine Light.

And through the message of love all will exist

In God’s eternal bliss.

The warm summer breeze rustles silently through the trees.

The waning moon illuminates the sky,

A quarter hanging by the celestial bands,

As Spirit’s shadows dance across the land.

Darkness of night filled will wondrous light,

As if the Lord left on the dim sun light.

Through the quarter moon there is a glimpse of his eye,

Always watching the beloved universe,

And all that live on the magnificent earth.

A salty sea brings tears to an eye,

On rushing water fears bob bye.

A bleeding heart entwined with the heavenly source.

The essence of God beats through the human course.

In the silence of a thought there is a divine spark,

Igniting the melodic songs of the joyous Lark.

A meditating force alters the vibrations of the space,

Creating energy where there once was waste.

In the day or the night the world is bright,

A place of Love with the infinite light.

Through the sun or moon there is a glimpse of his eye,

Always watching the beloved universe,

And all that live on the magnificent earth.
