A Man Standing Alone

A man standing well off to the side of a convenience  store .  Looking cold from the chill in the air and with a well worn roller bag next to him  . Big eyes with a look of kindness  against his weathered face which clearly held some stories .

Suddenly i was looking to see if I had any cash with me . Yes, I did . It was a moment of certainty after that .  I walked towards him .  He was gracious and thankful .  He began to say something . He hesitated seeming lost a bit .  ” You don’t have to tell me your story  because I already understand it ” I said .  A moment of connection that takes me to my heart .

The Gift of an Eagle

Late afternoon sun inspiring a drive to the water’s edge  .  The  coolness in the air nearly stopped a walk on the beach .  It was a day that could have been early spring or  fall .  The light from the sun was diffused  by clouds and yet also giving a comforting warmth in the breezes .

I stopped at a bench and sat for a bit .  It was low tide though the water seemed to be coming back in . Small waves on top of small waves and the light shimmering and dancing along the water’s surface . Looking out and looking in as I sometimes call it .  Looking beyond the day’s events and freeing one’s mind .

It was just then that I noticed a bird sitting atop of a piling , exposed by low tide ,  out in the water .  Looking more intently  I reared that it wasn’t just any bird but rather an Eagle . I remained for a bit longer .  I began hoping that I’d get to witness his flight and just as I stood up to go this wonderful bird took flight  from his perch .

He soared with such grace and beauty .  I stood watching , taking it in , and whispering ” thank you .”

The Brilliance of the Heart

The layering reflecting the richness

in the

Brillance of my heart .

The places that have been cleared away

and are

revealing the tender bits and pieces

illuminating

and then

shattering the light into

a kaleidoscope  .

Free  from any fear

because it’s love  that  you see

and it’s for eternity .2037-10-29-21-08-17

Release the Wild Hope

  Integrity lives beyond the ego and  inside of her heart . And  though she is not always so tame , her passions fuel the desire to do good quietly .  The dreams born in the heart are beautiful and bold   and the ideas that flow from  her mind move around  edges both rocky and smooth,  inside and out .

A moment arrives as if in were late and along with it comes a bit of it’s wild . Now,  Will I go with this bit of wild and see ? For in this moment , you see ,  it is life and it is free .

This wild hope , it lives in me and I offer to others at every place I see.

Rattle your cage and go into your heart . Your dearest friend awaits you there with open wings and a wild hope and heart .

I Belong to the Stars

I belong to the birds and to  the trees ,

And the flowers and the sky.

And to the bees and the dreams  and the rivers and the streams .

I belong to the mountains and the hills  and to the stars in the sky .

Wherever  they came  from embrace them . Embrace them and breathe them in so as to experience the sweet release that is freedom .  Now live and breathe out . Feel the arrival of luscious laughter and joy needing no reason to be . Just be . 

Deeply alive to feel it all so true . An easy road not so,  though magnificent  in grace and inexplicable in sorrow .  Either one may be manipulated away should  we choose it . Better to recognize the beauty living in the pain . The stars in the sky as you see them do you wonder silently to yourself ” Am I seeing only the remains of this brilliant, fiery light ? Am I looking straight into it’s death and seeing the beautiful  glow ? ” 

Each moment we embrace  and each breath we take notice of is our gift to eternity .

Home Inside The Stars

The light that naturally lives , even in the darkness .  And a joy that celebrates, though quietly when there is despair. This is home .  The laughter at the door invites you into yourself to recognize that your  life is  sacred  . A challenge or a smile beckons to be released and a gentle  embrace remembers when  moments  were born .

When the  morning song of a single bird was the sweetest sound you’d ever heard . And  when you’d lie on your back ,side by side , in the grass  . Entering  the heavens through sight of the stars  above and knowing somehow that it’s home .

Together again we look up at the clouds , and  breathing  softly and deeply  we relax into the earth beneath us .  She holds us and  gives freedom .  Each breath is a quiet meditation  and  a thank you to life .   We enter our imaginations  and creations . It is Heaven here on earth and it’s Home .
