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 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….


a deep sigh of the soul

March 4, 2017
the unveiling of a deep spiraling sigh of the soul…
The precious mystery is an ever expanding
awareness….a wind
a breath………a spirit
forever creating…
sweeping the sky and beyond….
gathering the secret
in every seed and sperm
in every seeing star
in stillness
in the transparency of light
in a luminous glow
without a name or form
a flow of movement which cannot be seen
or detected or captured…
the mystery of infinite beauty
that gives itself
as a voluminous invisibility
forever surrendering everything
that ever was or is…splitting the secret
of existence into particles
that dissolve and melt like music
once it finds the air
that silently consents to contain its flight
the mystery gathers
the disappearing mist of tears
and the essence of laughter
the sweetness of a smile
the silence of the sea
the secret of sight
the eternal light
leaving a wispy hint of a
 subtle fragrance of every glory
hidden in
 beauty that dazzles
the mind
and frees the spirit
a feathering freedom that hides in the
gentle wake of a falling feather
in the wake
of a lover’s breath
or in the wake of only the purity of thought
not the thought itself
the tremulous quivering flow
of an elusive spiraling
rising joy
when spirit touches
and all that is
is known as

birthing a holy moment

February 25, 2017
A holy moment touching the essence of intimacy…
Is there anything in a word
that can be mined by the heart
to guide my lips to dare to speak
or write of God…
as I feel and experience
and live such an effusive mystery..
to presume to free the flow of pure love
or a deep kindness looking
for a gentle expression
in the sweet space where I live
and move have my being..
or does the treasure dwell
beyond form and create
a living Word around this stirring
swirling awareness of beauty..
When I feel the sweet rising
of a song of feeling
searching for the grace to soar
on a benevolent breeze
or the warm breath of a sigh
I can only trust the beloved
to set it free
to carry it to thee..
a soft smiling presence
who cares enough
to listen to the sacred spreading
of the wings of my longing
to share in the glorious expanding
of a garden that welcomes
the sharing of a loving flow
from inside this glow
that awakens me…
written during a softly falling snow in the glow of dawn…..

A Divine Alchemy

February 19, 2017
holy presence
flame of spirit flaring
in a sacred moment…
inspiring a creative flow
and the writing comes
as an afterglow
a hushed silence
a curling awareness
gently swirling in the whiteness
of a vast spacelessness
that is
beyond description
yet something reaches for it
to touch the passing
an eternal flow
the brush of gentleness
moving on a most delicate
lifegiving breath
the blessing of caressing holiness
a rushing spring of purity
tingling and singing energy that awakens
and guides the spirit
into a clearing
 of blossoming meadows
an elusive fragrance of emanating
rising essence of love
a tear clinging to an eyelash
that catches the light
everything else vanishes..
disappears in tears
and soft laughter
a radiance
from a deep abiding joy

In the soft darkness before dawn..

February 4, 2017
In the soft darkness before dawn
the light is approaching
and it prepares us
for pure love
in the morning of innocence
that awakens
every fibre and nerve
and every cell
of our being
a gentle breeze caresses
the fire
it ignites within
our hearts
we run our fingers through
the curls of night
until the sunlight turns
them to the delicate essence
of golden light
the beauty of pure love
washes reason
clean of
noisy words
and all that is
not love
the source of this incredible
existence and unfolding
revelation of life
is guiding
every moment of our
journey here
helping us choose
love in as gentle a way
as we allow
if life feels unfriendly
and shakes us
to the core
we need only look
and listen
to our heart
and soul
and let love
set our spirits free
we are not able
to comprehend the vast
wisdom inherent in creation
for it is hidden
in the pure love that
its unfolding
be very cautious
in presuming that we possess
the deeper
wisdom that
created the world
for it is only
through love
that we will find
the path
that will bring us peace
and joy
and the fruits
of the spirit of love

Ever opening portal…

January 29, 2017
O divining light spilling and overflowing
anointing the night
creating sweeping wings and worlds
unfurling and flinging spheres
spinning…hurtling through
untouched space
giving birth to brilliant stars
aware of drifting and tumbling in slow motion flight
beyond gravity and human boundaries
forming cosmic seas far from telescoping eyes
and far from launching pads and errant rocket sites
designing a timeless expanse
through a secret dance
divine dimensions out of range of human hearing
creating a castling kingdom so endearing
only silence reigns and peace is a gift of being
pure love opens a deeper way of seeing
surrendering to a way of freeing
us in a kindly glow…an aura
of brightness
far beyond our night of tears
love dims all other sight
and casts us into a clarity of being seen
through a divine gaze of purity
where everything is new and true
and we melt and vanish into the sweetest
Spirit of the infinite Source from which we come…
cradled in a deeper knowing of who we truly are…

Ever rising spirit of love…

January 27, 2017
Some wonder when I sleep
seeing me appear so often
in these gentle hours
to bask in the secrets of silence…
when spirit flows in freedom
and my soul is at peace…
Love is the air I breathe..
my heart a holy grail…
kissed by a mist of invisible essence..
I experience a grace of renewal..
and I am forever reaching to share
the eternal moments of this sacred air…
with thee….
