With Peace Within

Reaching high
it comes to me
that yes
 you really do now see
you will sleep

And as you said to me
on what you hoped
your last day would be:

Go out again
 to the Winter-sweet,
where first it seemed
there was no scent.
Then when I went
the evening dew
was on the blooms.
There was a fragrance 
filling the sky,
as you told me
you are ready to fly.

I mentioned
 to your dear friend
you now know 
where to wait
looking through
 to heavens gate.

- s S s -


Barely a leaf
to warm the morning
on this very 
wintry dawning.
And rarely a morning
to cheer your heart
in this way
where you now start. 

So unusually
do we see
the depleted leaves
 clinging onto stalks
as Winter-sweet blooms
pale against the sky,
softly fragrant
reaching high.
And all around
is waiting for
the all-spice scent
to call you over
where all above 
will welcome you,
as this sweet tree
calls to me.
So let life be
 like a fragile leaf
and let all fall 
onto the ground 
as you rise above
all around
 golden flowers
to the higher light.

New Moon Calling You To Start Anew

Yes I see you.
I come to view
 your golden petals
lighting the way
in this dark moon day.

Only one 'bird' shining
in the pelting hail,
strong winds prevail.
 I see your beauty
from a distant window
calling me
to say 'hello'.

Gabriel is sowing Light.
 will come in this night.

Listen deeply
your call will be
answered by angels.

This Song Comes Softly

This song comes softly
quietly in
and then
the note played
and there was I
floating in
to a new

A surprise from nowhere
not looking
then something
was happening.

Not at all
what I expected
as I was going along
somewhat reserved
and surrounded
by my own space
and then
a face was close to mine
even crossed the boundary line
and I was softly
this is fine.

Another place
another time
I will wait
to arrive there

This came to me as I awoke
in the dawning this morning, June 5, 2018

Space Between

Has every song you ever heard
been carried along
with the birds
the breeze
the rustle of leaves
the spiraling 
flight in the wind 
of earliest times

Inspiration comes
from where it is now.
Open up somehow
and through the window
frames a new way
to add contentment
 to each day.

One note at a time
one bar, one verse
across unfolding pages,
one song has been sung
through the ages.

As space
 between the notes,
the bird
 flies to another forest,
the 'song lines'
 cross the land,
some days are best
when less is planned.

Just a heart that knows
there is a flow
when life
 is bringing all you know
to present
 a light refrain
as a gift to uplift again.

Just notice if,
you dim your gift
by choosing
Or practice more
to allow
 peace and stillness in,
to sing
 some joyful notes
as lovely music floats
through you.

Dancing In Between

Look within the Lilac petals

You feel called
to lean in closer
to share the softness
though only you
are there
with the fragrance,
with the joy of spring
and everything
a lilac bloom brings.

But look closely, 
then you see
the lilacs shine 
to enhance the dance.

Bright dancing lights
bring possibilities
of glimpsing more
so by peering-in
comes the beginning
to see 
the invisible.
