Final Bow - Farewell
















upon the stage of life stillness settles
each act leading to the grand finale
bidding you farewell, falling rose petals
upon the stage of life stillness settles
final bow, may your journey be gentle
spotlight shines, as you enter the valley
upon the stage of life stillness settles
each act leading to the grand finale



Author's note:  This was written for a blogger friend known
as  Berowne. Sadly, he is no longer with us in this realm.
I felt compelled to write something to honor his life.
I often read his posts and tried to solve his quizzes.
He once posted a story for me and I gladly accepted
the blame. It brought a big smile to my face.

I will miss his stories...

Tis The Season















Tis the season
let us embrace the message of love
spreading joy throughout
the land...

Tis the season
let us give with willing hearts
spreading little treasures throughout
the land...

Tis the season
let us sing in unison
spreading music throughout
the land

Tis the season
let us remember the reason
spreading peace throughout
the land



Wishing you the gift of hope, love and peace!

Quietude of Winter















We gather  to celebrate the winter solstice
a time  when  daylight hours dim away
and darkness lingers  upon the land

in quietude we give thanks for wisdom
letting love incubate in silent spaces
withdrawal is essential to renewal

can you feel your heartbeat
can you feel your heartbeat
can you feel your heartbeat
deep within your soul

We gather to celebrate the winter solstice
earth slowly turning towards sunnier days
pausing to sit in the mystery of darkness

nurturing creative energy a place of gestation
drums call forth  the awakening of dreams
time to plant deeper seeds of consciousness

crossing the bridge, carrying a vision
in the sacred circles, threads of hope
connecting heaven and earth in song
  
We gather to celebrate the winter solstice
spectrum of heavenly stars illuminate
gentle reminder there is always light

in winter's stillness, let peace manifest
lasting footprints for a better world
together initiating transformation

can you feel your heartbeat
can you feel your heartbeat
can you feel your heartbeat
deep within your soul

Author's note: I attended a Winter Solstice Celebration

Embracing Light

pic credit -Truedessa's collection








full moon
awakening
aglow in nakedness
resting my heart within your limbs
sighing
~
glowing
under moonlight
in another season
longing for your tender embrace
dreaming
~
my heart
entwined with yours
magical connection
standing bare and vulnerable
touch me 
~
silence
natures allure
capturing rare moments
in darkness there are rays of light
I see

Heart of Wonder















In  quiet moments
I turn the pages
of my heart
reading from
a book filled
with love

one beat
one heart
one song

your words
meshed with mine
lost in another time
a poetess
a lyricist
in harmony
falling
deeper
into
a sea
of
desire
 
in tune
we sang
of hopes
and dreams
writing letters
bringing forth
words

one beat
one heart
one song

on wide wings
over a sparkling vista
we soared new
heights
seeking the deeper
meaning of life
following dreams
we met on a star
burning bright

here our tale
really began, seeking
the greatest story
we ventured onward
vibrating with energy
a new world in the
seventh heaven star
aligning our gift
of knowing
through Orion's Belt
we slipped into a hole
of wonder...

one beat
one heart
one song
