Vanishing into the Light of Love

November 26, 2016




Feel the music overflowing and
slipping through the moon
softened in the glowing
night giving rise
to moonflowers sprouting
from unseen fingertips
luminous light flowing through
vast and open palms of sky
nurturing and spinning beauty
scattering stars falling
falling from laughter
twirling spheres leaving trails
of whirling sparks leaping
from infinite love
expressing the intimate heart
from which they come..

Synergy fills the spaces
creating visions of
fountains rising and vanishing
as they fall caressing silently
those who are awake and watching
and those who sleep and dream..

Weaving a glowing quilt
of light to cover and shelter
the luminous spirit
in silvery strands of the
beloved’s hair
and as tender as the whispers
of the soul moving between
the divine and dancing spirits
seeking to discover its source..

New galaxies appeared
and constellations formed
in the night sky
visions rising
from the unseen touch
of spirit
suddenly free
to create and express
a love unrestrained by time
or space..

Without a sound
love vanished
dissolving into the eyes
of the skies
and into the infinite heart
and sanctuary
of the soul of the Beloved..



When a great soul appears….those surrendered to love gather in the light….


Song of Freedom

The beauty of the earth suddenly
seems radiant beyond belief
as I gaze with the eyes of my heart
the noise of naysayers and the blight
of imitation begins to fade from sight

The rumbling tremors of the earth
seem to be shaking off
the weight of “too muchness”
which may crush the land
and the spirit of life itself

The deepest nature of being cries
for freedom turning toward the skies
to call for the sweeping winds
that will clear the air
and save this sacred dwelling space
for all who were meant to care

We pray for love to guide us all
to embrace the wayfaring souls
that sing our way to being free
to regain our inborn right to roam
as we turn our hearts toward home


The alchemy of longing

November 19, 2016
The alchemy of spiritual fire…
A longing and open heart…
a gently rising and ascending soul…
a truly free and wandering spirit..
is drawn to endless and infinite beauty…
and a capacity for surrendering
to the light of love’s guiding…
a willingness to feel deeply
and compassionately…
encountering a deep and life-giving Joy
that forever changes and sustains life itself…
such a soul discovers a path of creating
that celebrates love as a way of being…
and the human possibility and potential
for revelation…
which ultimately is without limit…..
a vision of an inward eye
breaking free to see eternally..
the ways we are
created to be truly alive…

the living essence of love…

November 17, 2016



I know the sheltering of resting deeply
in the petals of roses
the caressing tenderness..
as soft and alive as skin…
the whispering embrace that emanates
fragrance and beauty drawing
the nightingale’s song
of longing to nestle there…
in a delicate fusion of feathering
and flowering love…

I know the swirling thermals of wind..
the currents that invite us
to spread our wings and glide
with a moment of spiraling play to slide
on air that isn’t there to see..
yet…sings to thee.. to let love cradle
and carry the soul becoming whole
in the sweet breath of God…

I know the kiss in the night brushing
my heart with a pulsing essence
creating a rhythm that aligns
with a divine rushing stream flowing
like a dream
igniting a wakeful awareness
of love anointing my life with a sweet
lightness of being…

Spirit arising in timeless beauty like
the foaming crest of a wave
reaching high enough
to touch the moon or to follow the mystical
pull of the tides…. like the muse
of silent music that guides
my wandering flow to know and feel
the fusion of love as my eternal home..



Touched by the Purity of First Light

November 11, 2016
Touched by the Purity of First Light
First comes pure silence
as the purity of a breaking dawn
brings the grace
of a flow of energy that is thrillingly new
cleansed by the light of innocence
clearing the way
for the radiance of vision
of the spiritual heart
anointed by the aura of the soul
arising from spirit
it comes to us
like the breath of Christ as pure light
or the gaze of a newborn child
a holy gaze
like a ray of sunlight warming
a moment of being
We feel seen and touched
as it draws and attracts us
into existence
and the creative potential
of the art
of life itself
to be born into an awareness
that awakens the possibilities for which
love itself is creating us
sharing the ever conscious spirit
that longs to share
its very nature with us
an eternal exchange of always and ever
new experience
that brings the soothing breeze
of dawn
to the dance of light
and love
a covenant rainbow
of color that curves around
us like arms
and encircles us like
 spiraling into spirit to create
love as the guiding force
in the universe
transmitted by light
to give us glimpses of eternal moments
and yet dwelling in unseen
waves and currents of movement
that can be felt by spirit
containing the sweetness of the heart
and the purity of the soul
moving beyond the gift of our outer eyes
but felt with the grace
of an inner
sensing and purity of tactile experience
that flares like a flame
and comes into being like
a spiritual fire
oblivious to restrictions
it moves through the purity of freedom
pure intention
communion of pure spirit
This is its own protection unknown
to those who have not
surrendered yet
to this pure state
best left undescribed
No word can contain this essence
no environment can contain it
no manifestation
can contain it
only reflect its flow
and the purity
of light and love
that creates it
Surrender to this and it guides
our every moment
and breath
of pure presence

Sharing this deep longing…

November 10, 2016


The gentle touch of Spirit awakens me so often in the night….
am feeling profound gratitude for beauty,
for the light of love
and a deep thankfulness for kindness,
for truthfulness, for purity of intention, for compassion,
for joy, for peace, for creativity, for hope, for integrity, for humility,
for patience, for the flow of presence and for help to those in need,
for healing, for mercy, for humor,
so many qualities in people
that make this a better world…..and make us more fully human.
 Now is the time to align with these graces
 and affirm the divine reflections across this earth, 
that which makes us fully human that exists and moves within us…. 
and to truly try our best to live them.
The times when we need these qualities the most.. 
challenge us to be the best we can be, 
to let love guide us to a wholeness of being
 and the fullness of life to live in community in covenant relationship..
to hold them sacred… with the Source of All Creation….
from which all goodness comes…
and may it awaken it in all of us and help us to thrive in our highest energy.

Living a deep longing for this for all life…for all people…for all nations…


Longing the day into being..

November 5, 2016
Out of the night
and into the first soft rays
of light
words burst from the bud
of the heart
longing to caress the sky
with feelings of love
still unspoken.

Some rise from a heart
that is broken…
sprouting wings

to begin

to sing the songs
that soar in sacred silence
in the sweetness
of sighs
that are cradled gently
and released
from the breath of God


veils the night..
The shivering coolness
of the moon
vanishes from sight
as the warmth of the sun
drapes its golden light
linking the treetops reaching
for warmer skies.

Morning can be a cathedral
for the eyes
rising in music


the soul
in graceful sighs..
We are blessed to behold
the unfolding play
of life

the dancing

one more day

The sweet essence of love…

November 1, 2016
The nightingale lives its reason for being
in the song pouring out and flowing through
an open heart..such a tiny heart for such
a magnificent song of love…
warbling its unending songs into a vast eternal sky…
Discovering the beloved
in the silence of the song
within my soul
in the morning light,
flowing as a river of sweet wine
within my heart.Is there anything
more nourishing
than the love of our God
in the soothing sanctuary
of our being?

Could there be any garden
more fruitful
than the one
where we dwell with
the Light of all light?


dwelling in love as a way of being and living…

The mystics are spreading
the fragrance of God among the stars
and hiding the precious perfume
in the dust on the path to the door
of our hearts.

May you be touched and blessed,
surrounded by the glorious essence
of His Presence,
and may the beauty that adorns your face
fall from Love’s kindness,
generosity and grace.

spirit of ascending and spiraling love

 The mysterious essence is
beyond the pen or the quill…
or the span of wings
or the songs we sing…
but the music flows from love
and the heart knows the wonder
of surrendering….
to a beauty that permeates the air
lifting us where
we feel how real and rare
love is everywhere
waiting for the open heart….
and we feel that whispering wind
rushing in and changing everything…
