Precious Gifts

It is a joy for me to see feathers
placed randomly
as little birds fly by my garden
leaving smiles in the tall Easter-daisy blooms
or a long blue tail feather under the fruiting crab-apple tree
as the parrots depart the party. 
At other times the empty twig-nest
falls to ground after winds
so there is a perfect container to place
one from here and one from there
where the sky community share sacred space.

Brave Souls

Brave souls are alive,
taken for a ride,
like the blossoms blown away
in the winds of spring
when everything is whirled around
and finally it settles down,
a little higher off the ground.

Brave souls do know
nothing stays the same,
changes come to claim
the present,
open this gift
go deeper not wider, go deeper.
The gains come, when within us,
we choose Willingness.

Willingness leaves the way
wide open for the new, new day
when traveling brings you within
when the truth you seek
is where you meet your frightened self
and look to see
not who abandoned you
but who did you abandon too.
When all you ever need is to see and know
there is only Love, or the Call for Love.

Choose once again.
The soaking spring rain will regenerate you
to see the fruit growing
to see the peach reach maturity
to see the summer harvest shine
when you and yours combine
when I am you and you are me
and All Is One is how we see
the fruiting trees strengthening
as every change of season brings
summer, autumn, winter, spring.

Part 2

Along the way through our lives
there comes the time when we say
I wish there was another way.

We traveled far and wide.
We had picnic days our own way,
but comes the day and comes the time
when we reach what seems to be
'the ending line'.

Some brave souls know the way to go
is not wider horizontally
but deeper,
deeper where the soul can see,
that immersing with our shadow side
heals old patterns much denied,
so when we rise from that dark night
the wider plains do not entice
as we have lived the valley life
and going deeper led us to
the Real me and the Real you.

We looked for love where it always was,
but life changes and ways transform
so in these times we are shown
to go the distance and see the view,
the mountain top is calling you.

Old patterns fade in the sun
old ways were once leading us
but if we want the Love that's true
then see the one who looks at you
and surely see the call for love they show
never knowing what you see
not being you, or being me.

We come from One and finally
when this life is passing
and the bridge lights up
it is Peace and Love that lead the way.
Going deep will heal old ways,
the tourist route unravels
so our life is blessed when we know
the road less traveled is the way to go
Home to Love where life is simple
and the tender heart rests knowingly.
You will find what is missing
when you look in the right place and realize:
You had it all the time 
Only Love Is Real

This long answer I received in my sleep. 
Yes, it is long.
A good life is long. 
Testing relationships seem long.

It Is A Lovely Thing

I wish hearts grew on fences
sharing colorful cheer
like the lovely thing
of wearing hearts on our sleeves,
or growing 'violet-lawns' with heart-shaped leaves.
Maybe plant chamomile daisies to skip upon
to start greening the barren ground
with possibility to see more beauty around.
Let us all paint a heart on the fence 
or a love card for the fridge,
a song in our heart,
a new season to come
please lift our caring hearts
to share goodness in community
to widen some smiles
knowing a wink may flavor the day
or warm faint hope along the way.

Here Where Hearts Are Humming

I say, I gave myself away
I never saw myself
I was lost
the silent
the nature child
I was the natural explorer
the garden dreamer
the flowers friend
the dogs companion
the one 
who was the one by a tree, a lake
and I loved creeks and ponds,
forests and birds
a sweeter sound was never heard.
Now I sit with the chimes and I am delighted
when my heart just hums with them.
Now, here, near the almost silent trembling
so simple, so graceful,
never imagined or barely seen
a soft breeze of life eases through me.

I see the chimes vibrate and tremble.
as the soothing deep and low tones 
are whispering
yes we know the humming is nourishing. 

In another hour, or another day
they may shimmer in sunlight,
bringing pure delight to witness like
the gentle calming of a babe in arms.
Here unbelievably,
my visible trembling ceases to be.
Here. Here In My Heart, I feel Safety.

Inner Spaces

When there is mystical space in my heart,
when I feel contentedly light,
when a calm day is appearing brightly
I find a quiet place to write 
so words come through me.
Often I am in the garden with 'you'
picking a flower or two.

This day the apricot roses are flowering
so I placed a few for you,
in a teacup on my desk
then sat to rest.....
I looked into my kaleidoscope
and heard you whisper "Marvellous"
as we know this is handcrafted from Huon pine
with colourful gems shimmering within.
Gazing through to the window light
I feel like floating to your Heaven.....
My Precious,
you live in every treasure,
each bird call, flower, tree and shrub,
in my verses, our books, our songs, our life!
In so many ways,
in our beginning and our final days,
we were so courageous and brave.

My love is with you, B  xxo
