the earth laughs in flowers~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Realize the Pearl
throw caution to the wind and imagine
that each happenstance
is a baroque, black-lipped pearl
of illustrious potential
to be ‘real’-ized,
in the vast ocean of life …….
Can this blush of plentitude
of equal nights
bring, in prevailing winds,
fertility, fuchsia, laurel, and lime
to amass a fortitude
to bear the bleakest, barren burden
of winter ahead?
Etching the sketch
to the rhythm of the heart
lets the felt, yet ineffable, essence
be noted and expressed without writing
nary a word — the voice, once silenced, behold.
Secrets of the Heart
It is in the affectionate
of those soulful secrets
with kindred spirits
to the heart.
The Energy Bridge
In the conscious realm
our feelings and thoughts vibrate,
reflections of us
mirrored in ether, cycling
across energy bridges.
The Universal Harness
Through unobstructed consciousness,
at the core of our power,
we can mitigate hurtful effrontery
in the world /
to live without ignorance
and harness a shared, compassionate energy from within.
Our Little Town
Nestled into bedroom communities
protected from the fray /
evolving into global
embracing eclectic wonders,
a geographically unbounded life
where the milky way seems closer somehow.
Oppressive demands stifle creative energies,
burden the heart and soul, with dark energies,
and disguise the essence of your genuine being,
which is light and love.
The Nature of Rebellion
Rebellion intertwines with compliance
as the river buffets the boulders
each adapting to new ways of being
inherent in this natural
rhythm of life.
Ebony and Rose
The unseen world, the ebony of empty space
a neutral place, the canvas
for your brushes with pallet
rose is your energy, the paint
tints of thoughts, aspirations
into the furrows in the fabric of consciousness
in space, in time, on earth and on, into the ether, and beyond.
The Gates of Consciousness
into insidious entropy
stunted when unobserved
but with appreciative awareness
the protected Soul entwines,
enkindles serenity, harmony
an impassioned, united, flowered
Out of the Shadow, a Blossom
Our shadows are blackened
by defensive egos,
which burden, versus,
and vulnerable living
flowering ethical, soulful, life-fulfilling potentials.
Feathering the Heart
in sackcloth and ashes /
so we bring forth angel feathers
enliven the vessel
welcome and undulate life-energy /
exchange / these gifts of the heart
The Neverland of My Dreams
Is there a realm, with
one underlying truth
one summit, abundant trails
one river, many crossings
one consciousness, many journeys
or is this imagined in the Neverland of my dreams?
Living with Synesthesia
of musty hotels
prefer soapy pastels
and fruity pink
makes one think
of held emotions
earth’s bounty in colour
salt like no other.
Life’s Irony as Alchemy for Transformation
Shield not heart, mind and soul
from inherent ironic incongruities
by nurturing creative solutions
letting the tree of life
branch and blossom
directly to the light.
Seek the tabula rasa
reveal your genuine identity
mitigate the superfluous stuff
of body, heart, mind, soul, and spirit
with mindful intentions
