Wedding blessing; Panorama;



A lamp is lit ( now, finally)
A flame rises up(a calling)
A new dance has begun ( bye bye old one)


Long shadows, long clouds,
’veils
of the heart
 wisdom.


And the stream carries (two as one)
 down to the wide sea
Panorama.

haiku ; Purpose

Purpose - show yourself. 
Come out of hiding. 
Let me see you in full glory.

haiku; dark night of soul

Night has my heart. 
It endureth not. 
Day comes soon.

The Shining


The beginning was to turn,
then turn again.
down comes the peace.
down comes the Passion
in the trees
and in the stars
the Shining.


The Outbreak;

 It was the best of times ,
                      it was the Outbreak.
There was a constance,
               and desire for warmth
                                                     by fires.
Luck(?) arrived slowly,
                as the days arrive slowly
                         tentacles of fog
                                 in the wind,

and it was
              all
               lit
                   up.

for Alison

Era by era;
The path is long and clear.
It goes down to the sea,
where the moon shines
and a fish jumps.

A mountain gives birth to an era,
and the trees are their records.

this night
this day.
this life.

for sandrine



Sleeps

Going on past the flowers
               and the road winds.
A rose appears, and disappears.
Magic is in the air,
         and in the pool.
A quiet angel sings,
and all the world sleeps.

for Amber; transition

When the world was round ,
              and hearts were square,
 everything was not as it is,
 
An article of faith
                    resumed
tirelessly
 rolling out
grace,

Sometimes a transition is offensive, a chore,
 Sometimes a gift, a shore,


Then all the birds sing         
               and dance comes easy.
A peaceful Way
             prospers the Great.
Though frought with frost
                         forwardness is ongoing
and blessing is attained.

For  Amber




fro Tlai age 15 Radiance.

A master awaits
     inside of you,
as you open
     as a clam opens
                to breathe.
This instigation  
                 begins
             Unfolding
 as petals on a rose
 or waves on sea
               breathing life
                      into a Day,
        or Sunrise,

for Talia age 15.

for bree; Great fortune,


as you walk by
             flowers nod
                   in greeting,
a river winds its way
            to the sea,
a gull calls
  as it flies
 an angel  
  alights on a rock
Great fortune.
For Bree.


A girl called ‘Muve’

when she walks
               rain falls as  teardrops,
lightning gathers
              in its residency
ready to unleash
like a spell
             past cast.
and a snake waits.
                  its venom waits
for the uncoiling
               in the dance
that brings Grace,
                 Transmutation
                             and thunder.

A girl called “Flowers”


She comes with colors
in the morning light,
and in the evening,
when the moon is full.
She brings me warmth.
She brings gifts.
They are the flowers , and the colors.
I follow her with my eyes
as she glides
       from spot to spot
as a bee
but with a wand
that brings to life
the shades.

Civilisation of Light.

 
In the times,
         gone past
rose a wellspring of Light,
                furiously generating,
                       weaving and enmeshing
               issuing forth.

A New World was born,
                a new respect.
Out of Nothing poured Love,
poured Truth,
poured Freedom.

Machineries of Light
              came into existence
manifold treasures
                       moving
in a sea
awash with Life.

Heart was poured out
               and the Creator was proud.

It is still there,
                 yours for the taking.

Olivia 8 months


A river
and a valley,
 up    and    down,
up we go, down we go
in    and     out,
over   and    around


( developing spatial orientation and awareness of growth.)

for Cathy


in the valley of the departed
by the stream of the brilliant
in the heart of the sun’s shine,
 journeys the maid 
                       and her honor.
an owl cries out.
a dog barks.
 and the moon sways.

for Chase age 3 years


in the end,  
       and in the beginning,

 in the swaying
                of the limbs
                            in the trees

a sled goes by
          and a rain falls dowm

 and a boy laughs.

for Bree, mother of Olivia and Chase.


river of joy.

grass is so green
 as  I lay me down
to the Earth. I  bow
 to the moon and stars
 above.

I give my Respect.

Breath comes so easily,
ceaselessly
                                 and rhythmically.

Sonia





in the end all things are created
equal.

one day, a dozen days.

angels give birth , and fly.

the moon gives joy, and mysteries.

a soul sings in the prayer            
                              and the hands light up.

for Angel age 8 months


A day goes by,
                     a sun,
an egg hatches,
 an angel sings.
Can you hera the angel singing?
 Can you sing her song?

Al ashes  (this is a song to sing to her).

for Sahand.


in the Light

 wave after wave,

and the Light
          is embracing,          
             comforting.

Know the essence  
                          of Self.
Know the essence
                      of all things,
Know the maker,

and Be, 
       the Life
