Bridging Between

When the nights are cold
and the mist is silent,
Autumn is delighted 
just to be 
shining brilliantly.

Looking like a welcome fire,
I am always heartened 
when comes the May
as Viburnum carlesi
shows wondrous beauty
with a deep display
of picture-book colour
 for you today.

She grows slowly and welcomes frost.

Comes the Spring
sweet fragrance brings
honey birds and humming bees 
to this glorious tree
that continues to be 
alive and well, thankfully.

So Happy Birthday to you
my Apple Isle friend,
and remembrance
I also send
to the other side
where my sad friend went
who loved the delicate spicy scent.

Blessings, Love and Peace

Under The Oak Tree


May I sit with you a little while
and receive renewal
from your green smile.

May I know each day
whatever arises
will pass
and whatever passes
will come to be
a way of learning for me.

May I breathe fresh air
in the mountain stillness
and allow myself the space to be
knowing clarity.

May I grow the herbs
and harvest the fruit,
may I shine within
and know there is
peace to be with me.

May I pick some blooms
and sing with flowers,
may I live simply
and treasure hours,
quietly knowing
life is growing all around me.

Aliveness



I see your light beaming
though the morning
calling
deeper
contemplation.

Yes I see more 
than ever before.
Yes I am very willing
to expand my view of you.
To allow you to see 
within me.

There is more
than ever before,
quietly present
in simple ways,
where we walk everyday.

I call to you
follow through.

Look deeply 
to truly love.

Let every plant
light your way.
Ask for guidance on your path.

Let leaves light your every step
and life will bless
 your every breath.

Have awareness of all there is.

Welcome beauty into quiet places.

Breathe love into open spaces.

Contemplate with loving kindness
Be open to real aliveness.

Blessings be
to the seen
and to the unseen.
To where we are
and where we have been.
And most especially
to this eternal Now.

Nurturing





Lovely Lavender 
present
here
with your angelic wings
your 
compassion brings
great caring
warmth
comfort 
and
harmony.

Every soul 
rests with you,
every body
feels restored,
every mind
indeed receives
 clarity.
We are renewed
by your
glorious colour,
 truly healed
and deeply soothed
with your fresh
   floral fragrance.

 We are regenerated
by Mother Earth's
great goodness.

I lead the way
and say
Thank you Great Mother
Thank you gentle flower


Look closely into these
and you may see 
the auric beauty.
It is like an invisibilty
 in the stems
on the right side
 of this HDR photo,
and around the tiny flowers
of the close-up..

(I took this photo today,
 early on the Ist May, 2018)

So Silently Littlebee


"Long ago the end
 was written in the stars
and
 set into the Heavens
with a shining ray
that held it safe
within eternity
and
 through
 all time as well."

More Yin Than Yang

Poets
 write
 of dappled light.

 I pass by
this nice old fence.
 I see the maple tree.

I ask a melody
to sit with me.

Dappled light
 appears to be
vanishing
like
 the autumn leaves
 before
 a winters night.
