Only Love

Only Love comes with me,
the love you gave and the love you received.
Listen deeply to the singing song 
arising and surprising
as all light is high on our breath of life.

When blossom petals fly away
they float along in the sky,
the breezes blow
so some fly high,
the rain comes soaking that same day
and other petals wash away.

So now less is visible
but still I know
the petals have a place to go.
A good number of them
are seen again
landing in a different place,
being mulch for little plants:
a blossom cover on the ground
to warm the earth
and protect the young,
to wrap around and bring
gentle goodness

The way I see
the changing winds,
the petals 'whoosh' to greater things.
Their purpose was protecting buds
so now the fruit is growing plump,
the harvest brings us greater good
as nature knows the seasonal ways
nourish and nurture our everydays.

Being Peace

Today I walk in peace
tomorrow is beyond,
the days go with the breeze
patience waits with me.
All is still and silvery
as ever it will be.

'Make some space.
Sit quietly, in silence,
and certain kinds of things take place,
if one observes.'
Tara Singh
'A Course In Miracles: A Gift For All Mankind'

Beaming Brightly

When I am still,
the leaves turn on their dancing lights,
flowers sing,
they bring their brilliant colours
their shining smiles
and all the while
when being still,
joyful faces beam brightly
and truly do inspire me.

This Day

Today I need green
to look upon
to gather strength,
and courage to reach any length
to go beyond
what 'seems to be'
and find flexibility in my view
of how things are
and how things 'sit'
to meet and knit in the centre.

So there we are
and if you look
the violets grow
beside the brook.
The water dwells in the well
so emotionally
all will flow if we
stay perfectly still
to call in the higher power.

Follow On

The shortest journey
is to follow your heart.

Remember Me

The Sweet pea
 delicacy and departure.
"Plant Lore" by Josephine Addison
"Here are sweet peas on tip toe for a flight
with wings of gently flush
o'er delicate white"
John Keats (1795-1821)


My greatest joy is following
my highest potential....

Seeing Beauty along the way

 gifts from nature

Hearing answers
Reading signs

So just keep going
further along the road
where there
 will be a mossy knoll
 to rest upon and know

Openness is all around....
We are safe and sound.
Bearded Iris

Standing Tall

How heartening to see
you lighting the way
through my local bushland
on this misty day.

How grateful I am
to the 'standing ones'
being there
for me to sit beside.

I listen
and in your strength
I hear Faith calling.

Reach high, grow tall
stand strong
and appreciate every bird song.

Silently one by one
in the infinite 
meadows of heaven
blossomed the lovely stars,
the forget-me-nots of the angels.

Being Blue

As I sit with you
I understand
life it brings healing for
all those willing to explore,
to acknowledge others
to be present for listening
to be grateful for lessons
and teachers along the way
and to ask for clarity in this day.

patiently I call Love,
Stillness and Simplicity
to sit with me.

'Fruit of the Everlasting Fragrant Tree'

Mandarins and Port Wine Magnolia
The Essential Essence of Mandarin
'The gentleness and sweetness of spirit
is gathered in the arms of this fragrance.'
'there is a vigour and sprightliness
in how mandarin stirs the spirit.'
'At times, when we feel fully connected
to the source of all Creation,
and still enough
to hear the celestial music,
we touch 
the spirit held within mandarin.'
-Valerie Ann Worwood -

The Spiritual Dimension of Fragrance and Aromatherapy"

I love this book.
Whilst reading any page
I  feel a deep sense of peace and upliftment.

REAL Will Heal

Sitting quietly with my pen
I know what's now
and remember when
my timidity gave me peace
but only now comes the release
from what was really all around.
What kept me quiet
close to the ground,
feeling thunder beneath my feet
never knowing which seat to sit upon.
Chairs moving without the music,
stabbing pains, no knife to see
behavioral patterns tightening me.

Then seemingly, suddenly
the truck rolls into the wall,
the dark clouds lift
that's what I feel
as speaking truth brings a healing
that's really REAL.

Secrets uncovered, reactions come
my mirrors shine
I stand calmly as the rope unwinds.

The Way Ahead calls to all
just follow along, through transparency
to see the lights of eternity......

May Willingness, Kindness,

Positivity and Goodness encircle us all

Sitting With ' The Standing People'

The Cedar Ash listened....

Then, said to me, 
Wait patiently.
Love and Courage within
will bring
openness to see
a hollow healed....

Leave a message

- This Too Will Pass -


I do not know who
lives in my chest

or why the smile comes

Am not myself, more the bare
green knob of a rose that
lost every leaf and petal to
the morning wind.

Fairy Bells Blossoming

Come sit with me beneath this tree
and know
the presence is ever-present.

Then tiny buds appeared.

The Beauty Way

How beautiful

You have it always in your heart,
 to walk it into
other glorious natural places
of beauty and presence.

Every walk you go on
 brings new places of meeting.

Every place you are
brings your fellow travellers
from around worlds
with you.

Life will bring you simple
delightful treasures
and abundant pleasures
as you carry grace in your essence.

Kindness and true harmony
 are with you dear, dear one
