Hold the child close to one’s heart

with tenderness

and a totally pure and unselfish love,

value the integrity

of each child’s life,

nurture and empower

each child’s freedom

to follow how God is calling

and guiding

the heart and soul and spirit

through the flow of responding

to each life experience..

feel and share

how precious a gift

each child is to all life…

embrace with great joy

the being of each child

as a child of God….



the deep beauty of silence

The silence curls around me
like the listening
of an awakened
caring heart
like a dear soul friend
gentle arms
 to hold me so tenderly
 in the darkness
of this mystical night
beneath the moon
arousing feelings
of gratitude
for this deep beauty
we share
words appear momentarily
to whisper
assurance of the love that
invites the melting
flow of the pure
in my heart
like the pull
of the moon on the tides
of the sea
the rising waves
that reach for thee
to touch the mystery
of this sweet

an unknown corner of the house of love

The deep journey into the mystery
of the greatest love
I have ever known
nestles into the heart
sings in the soul
wraps me in a sweet
smiling peace
as the music
of being
rises into the skies
of the eyes
of the beloved
sharing an intimate gaze
of adoration
a rivering current
of communion
a silent vanishing
giving life
and subsistence
to this
precious unseen
of God
as a Beloved

The essence of pure love..

Angel of Love
The essence of Spirit
and pure love lingers as
the fragrance of God
a veil of beauty and breath
for the very air is sweetened
by the loving sighs of God
lifting us into the flight
and height
of eternal rising….
An angelic transparency of Love
forms from the delicacy
of Spirit
that we might behold
the lightness
and caressing tenderness
of our ethereal being….

“Angel of Love”

the Unseen beauty of God

April 3, 2017
When we truly arrive in that vast space
of who we are in a purity of being
as we are created to be
we are the living beauty of an expanding sanctuary
we are life aware of itself
we are the flow of a shifting
of spirit
the bliss of an unseen kiss
felt in the
 rising mist of existence
dissolving in the pure eternal joy
of this eternal moment
a thrillingly transforming
ever changing

delicacy of flow of spirit

Rainbow Falls

delicacy of flow

i write as i live
in an energizing
of light and breath
for love
has its own
we feel the rhythm
of the heart
for we are all
in the music
of a larger heart
a stream of energy
simply flows where it goes
and the same light
dances on the prairie
as on the ripples
and waves of the sea
in which we are all embraced
the same source dances us
into the day
the same pulse of life
beats in all awakening hearts
and the same breath
breathes us into being
the music of the heart
rises from the sweep and touch
of divine fingers
and the light that circles there
is as rich and golden
as the pure light pouring
through the sun
when the heart begins to sing
the song emerges
springing from joy
whether in the darkness of night
or the glow of morning
for it opens
from within that greater heart
and music flows
from a glorious mystery
no one
can truly name
music is always new
like the breath
no matter how it sounds
to another
for love is encoded
with a beauty only the heart
can recognize
and only unseen eyes
can behold
words dance out of the darkness
like our lives dance
and swirl in the curls
of beauty
that have entrapped mystics
through the ages
and time stands still
and falls away as a measure
that has no meaning
to the heart
there is no such thing
as separation
to the pulsing heart
of one abiding in the mystery
that listens
to all longing hearts
of countless beings
who have sweetly surrendered
their boundaries
to love
right here on earth
i am not a poet
in the sense of category
but the poetry of the heart
has taken command
over the gardens that grow
from my fingers
each one brushing
and freely stroking the keys
or caressing the pen
with love
everything falls from a source
beyond my ability
to describe or control
it tumbles like a waterfall
into the fall line
of a timeless stream
this life
moment by moment
all the histories of all
of the faces and names
ultimately melt
in the dancing flames
of the beloved
and only the one
who sustains
my heart remains
this sweet existence
is the perfect
for this invisible flame
as the shimmering wings
of poetic vision
are carried by the light
of life itself


delicacy of flow of the spirit of belovedness

as it increases in beauty

the more humbling it is

the more aware we become of how little we are

in the presence of pure love

the One who graces us with the gifts

of light and mercy

of living water

of glory

always creating

and spreading beauty

beneath our feet

and before our eyes

through our hands

flowing through our heart

and soul

and spirit

our higher mind

our breath and life itself


we surrender it all to mystery

and the Source of the eternal spring

the beloved’s nature

is to give and give

out of the pure Joy of giving..



The Beloved is a living spring..

Eternal Flow by Rassouli


Melting into camellias
and apple blossoms, azaleas
and violets in the grass..
daisies and lilacs
and swaying willow trees..
the air filled with fragrance,
birds nesting and windows open,
basking in the warmth of the sun
wandering in wildflowers
the breeze ruffling feathers
and tossing curls… blue skies..
as the gardener kneels in the soft earth
moist with morning dew…
the plum trees hum with bees
seeking sweetness..
touching and being touched by
the beloved in thousands of ways..
blessed by spirit and the flow
of an eternal spring
in my heart…..


The Depth of Simplicity

The Depth of Simplicity


The golden alchemy of divine intention

touches the spaces beyond the sky

where creation begins

where pure love manifests

in the secrets

of imagination and visioning

empowered by the grace

of all giving

made possible by the Spirit

of All Beginning


Surrender into the will of a creator

of beauty and truth

that desires relationship

with each

and every life

trusting that love seeks

our well being

and transforms us

to flow

in the gentle freedom

of the winds

and throbbing force

that moves

the sea

lifts the water

into waves

and incites the heart

to move our lifeblood as the rivers

are empowered

to flow to their source


Feel the warm breath that sighs

arising from life itself

like a spring opening

the earth


falling like a gentle rain

of loving tears

anointing the orbs

in which

we live and have

our being


There is a beauty beyond

this existence

casting a veil of



the membranes of vision

only pure love

can see


Only faith can give us sight

to see the light

from a mystical night

that changes us

an elusive mystery


silently and eternally

within what is

most natural

and true

within the spirit

of being

touching us

to feel the music

of God




The Light of Grace..

“Gate of Heaven”  Painting by Rassouli


The Light of Grace…
Light is infinite in its variations as it touches earth
playing with the wind upon the water
dancing in the leaves
hanging stars in the trees
revealing its hidden colors in a rainbow
transparent and luminous
golden in lighting the world
a sentinel through the night
a beacon to guide our way
a flowering gateway to the eternal
delicate wings of light
inspiring flight of imagination
like a dove of heaven
soaring and circling the moon….
a gentle breeze brushing our lips
as the mysterious kiss of the beloved…




Silent Song of Light

12378027_904719232945054_4506019817146331913_o.jpg light falls on the landscape


Mystery whispers its story
in silence to those who listen
with an open heart and a soul
surrendered to pure love
without a desire to possess its secrets..
yet lives to sing the beauty..
Flashing lightning illuminates
a momentary vision
in the energy of a storm
the heart is forever awake keeping a vigil
beholding the winds of change..
the shifting seas and turbulent skies
the deep power and sacred flow
of creation brings serenity and balance
to this turning sphere of existence
cradling us in the glowing aura
of a smiling moon sharing
and spreading a song of peace
across the earth….
