In the arms of the Beloved


point for point perfectly balanced

cells aligned

molecules adrift

in pure energy

warmth of touch

breath of life



eternally generous

a magnificent feeling

of freedom

light from light

moments of perfect stillness


soundings of silence


visions of beauty and color

universal sky

cosmic flow of rivers

feathering waves of the sea

scattering the light


a cradling moon

a womb overflowing with stars


a blissful peace

gentle tenderness

divine presence

awakening the spirit

of eternal love




The precious veil of mystery

February 11, 2018



The mystery harbors the creator and the creation

the spirit of the source of life

the word that becomes flesh through love

the depth is in the darkness

and the light gives us the vision to behold

all that rises from the darkness

the revelations between the creator and the artist

are sacred and unique

utilizing the medium

which is our own developing expression

the vision may flow through dreams

or through a messenger

a deep intimacy..

through nature and the created earth

through dance…music….rhythm…

through word…verse…story…song

infinite possibilities

through play

of the fresh innocence

of children


as we listen and surrender

the journey begins…


The gift and grace of empowering love…..

February 6, 2018

Come play

in the soft rays

of dawn

and breathe deeply to catch

the revelations of dusk


the musky scent

of night

still clinging

to the golden veil

of the rising sun



in the surrendered soul

flows through us

in the fullness of love

and finds its expression

in the awe and wonder of surprise

before our eyes


for the heart

is a glowing fire

a luminous creator of infinite

and intimate ways

we can express

the voluminous kindness

in the wild

and unique grace

of love


with changing colors

we glimpse

the luminous transparency

of infinite beauty


and touching us


we cannot help but share

with caressing

and open palms

moist with whatever medium

is flowing from us

like silk

as the tip of a flame

writes its secrets through

our vulnerability


Love transforms

the moment

into something so sacred

we feel the breath

of whispering

when we truly listen

with the heart


a sensual breeze

seems to be

lingering near our lips

softly and tenderly

brushing the skin

like eyelashes


a leaping flame of feeling

sends us reeling

and dancing

to a deep rhythm

hidden in the marvelous


of creativity

unleashed by spirit

into a wilderness

of freedom


a fountain of pure joy

touches the sky

and becomes

a prism of glorious beams

of streaming light


elegant refrains

of beauty

from a music

of silence


O sweet companion

of my soul

how dear you are

love covers the distance

between near and far

and your essence

has become


a precious part

of this

eternal heart


The sanctuary of Spirit is infinite…

The Arrival of the life force in the temple of Spirit.. the beautiful transparency.. the unimaginable depth of Presence….the infinite reach of God…….the sanctuary given invisibly as a Grace….a protected spaciousness….true depth of pure love…..a moment that changes everything that depends on reason….vanishing in awe in the proverbial garden…

I am grateful for the grace of healing, for the life-giving breath of the beloved flowing through me, for the vision and creativity that surprises me when I open my heart to the gift of life itself manifesting in the universe. I feel the empowering presence at dawn, in the morning light, in the afternoon in the gold of the setting sun, in the mystical glow of the moon, and in the overwhelming love that holds me in the balancing energies of earth and heaven that sustain us.


Painting by Rassouli….called “The Arrival”

Dance of Love…

January 6, 2018

Oh painters, poets, singers,

artists of the soul.

playing in the particles of life,

let the quivering molecules

of your being

wade in the energy of your

hidden laughter.

Become masters of the medium

of love

and splash your kisses

across the sky!

Dip your brushes in your hearts

and create a vision

of the beauty crouching

within you,

ready to spring into life

as something new.

Let the winds of spirit blow

away the clouds

that cover your longing

for freedom.

Dress your precious life in

the colors of your soul

and let the wondrous visions

flow into a stream of love.

Be an invitation, like the dawn,

coaxing and calling

us all to dance with the day,

to play, to sing,

to let the light of the sun make us

gleam and glow.

Let your sleeping heart awaken

and push through the soil

of the body and mind

to be born again and again and again

as love.
Let your sweet discovery

bloom in wonder.

Greet the blossoms with shouts of joy,

as the petals of tenderness

surround you in a robe of rainbows

and dripping wonder.

Be like Joseph in his coat

of many colors

with eyes that see the Pharaoh’s dreams

and ears that hear

the songs of the night

locked in silence, weeping to be known.

Let the caressing touch of spirit

set you free

to be, to live, to move, to flow,

and to create,

again and again and again

as love.

Take my hand and dance me

into the mystery and

music of you.


deep listening in vigil of faith…

There is no limit to the depths
and reach of the whispering spirit
that opens to the divine flow
of the Source of All Life
within and through us..
in the peace of green valleys
and living water..
in the solitude and stillness
of communion..
in the loving revelations
of the infinite forms and light
expressing the intimacy of pure love
all names falling into the anointing
of belovedness
veiled in glowing
breathtaking beauty
divine grace
generosity and kindness
unique to each heart and soul
and precious life…

Lights my nights and my days…

A warm reminder of the blessings of light and love at Christmas

Light has come into the world and changed everything.

A time to remember and be grateful….

Grace abounding…

Living words softly adorn the earth
with visions of grace
ethereal clouds
and the whispering breath
of divine revelation
creating a glow of life-giving love
within our spiritual hearts
and souls
an eternal relationship
of communion
and sweet intimacy
a voluminous transparency
of flowing spirit
from the Beloved
sharing the light of awareness
moving and creating each being
moment by precious moment…
a gift and glory of great love
from God alone…

The Gift of Life

November 24, 2017

A living song of golden silence glows

deep within my being

a moving silence like breath

a soft caressing breeze

or the quiet sighing of love that creates

the miracle of life forming

in the magnificence of infinite expressions

like the light that rests easily on the ripples of the sea

clinging to a wave that rises

as it dances with the wind….

the mystics call it the beloved

for it sustains life as its very nature

a sacred giving of itself

an inner purity of innocence that blooms

in moonlight

a spark that becomes a flame

that lights the darkness

the beauty of healing hidden in the touch

of unseen hands

the love that draws a silent breath

when we forget to breathe

we are the rain for a thirsty earth

the vision and form

of life seeking itself

a silent surrendering passage

for the thrilling gift of belovedness
