Dreams and Adventure

The crest of a mountain becomes  visible and anticipation  grows in my heart . Each  time there is a subtle building up of excitement  and alone , or not , I can’t help but smile a little . Or maybe  a lot .

My gaze is pulled towards the sky and then to overview of the landscape ahead .  Thrilling my senses and awakening inspiration  in my thoughts  .  Opening my arms as if that singular , simple act will welcome new adventures into  life .  Welcoming , inviting and daring the forces of my soul to come forward .

Holding a Dream

Joyous hand holding in a dream or was it you ? When you were there , you weren’t there .

And I loved you still . Lessons for hearing  my heart and soaring free …and to believe .

It’s up to me .

Dancing thoughts anchored by the presence  of you now twirling freely

and

leaping into adventures  of this world and into ancient threads of humanity .

The power of release in a heartbeat and tender moments will never die . 

 

The Bold in the Heart

                                                                 

Facing the human spirit ,  witnessing  struggles shared ,  and stepping into delight .

Delight in inspiration even when it is fleeting .  It is an awakening  , treasured and dear .

Layers of paint , boldly placed , are sometimes scraped away .  Intent on connecting to the

heart , mind and spirit .  It a world obsessed  with time , doing and going , this work that i do

asks  for a pause and ….to see the gentle bits along side the bold .

Whispers Traveling through Unexpected Channels

Amidst my own fury and sight retreated from  any view  , suddenly , I hear a whisper .  Cease the fury and be gone so that i might hear .  I love to hear the loving murmurs directing me to be strong .  The whispers of comfort reminding me of love’s endless life and the nudges that bring me home to who I am .

The Hues of the New Day

Oh I how I breath in  deeply at the sight of the new day .

Leaving room for wondering , leaving room for you dear yesterday .

Sometimes I speak to you in the night and wait in vain for your reply .

And sometimes the mystery of the night is  my cloak of comfort and inspiration to fly .

 

The Love Letter Continues

I thank God that this work , this passion , this challenge is a never ending thread .

Incorporating  spirit with the practicalities  of living .  It anchors me to the earth and to  the

infinite power

of love.

It guides me to live in this moment while releasing me to explore the unknown .

 

Seeking Wings

They were  mine once  ,

in a dream …or was it  in  that other lifetime ?

The heart must know . That’s where I’ll go to seek my wings .

The sense of them wrapping around me gently and protecting  my soul

soothes me into sweet release .

It is a different sort of freedom not quite familiar in this earthly life .

Elegantly and delicately  they open after rest

and seek to stretch .

A few feathers may fall away here or there and , truly , are intended gifts .

Movement  designed to flow

and a dance leading the heavens  to free the heart .

Seeking wings in the sky

and I don’t don’t why .

Since I have rediscovered  them right by my side .
