Flowers and friends


White petals dance on the wind
I stand beside the loveliness
as a thousand bees dance
for my eyes and senses
the air moved by the humming song
as they flit about petal to petal
and I hold motionless listening
to the orchestra of insects
alive and gathering
to survive.
Nikolai would be proud
as the air became movement in song
a concerto for one
buzz buzz
buzzing here and there
these tiny creatures
flying close to my head
sensing not a flower
perhaps a new tree standing there
in their midst
and they go about their day
as I hold this moment here in mine,
and I smile quietly at this gift
under a summer sky
amongst flowers and friends
feeling as one.

We have a huge bush with delicate white flowers covering it and the sound of humming drew me close to see hundreds of bees just feasting on the nectar….lovely sound and image but I wonder if this is why the hummingbirds have suddenly gone scarce?

The heart of love


Dainty envelopes waiting
Elegant writing expressing
A heart of love
Given just because.
Close my eyes and see the smile
Blue girl shining like light
Vibrant sunshine yellow
And I can’t help but smile.
True spirits dancing
Sandy beaches and moonlit water
Tides bring change
Welcoming the truth of being alive.
A sister wild and free
Below the sky we are running free
To find our bliss in paradise
Lavender thoughts
Bring a heart filled with love.
Beautiful girl, thank you,
How I love a surprise.

A beautiful card found me unexpectedly from my girl Sara Ann. hello beautiful, pass it on and a letter filled with so much happiness and joy I could feel it through the ink to my fingers. I am blessed with amazing and beautiful friends.

Love in waves


Your words wash over me
Tsunami brings forth
Oceans of waves
Of love to my soul.
I float in the embrace
Of the water below the new moon
Echoes of my heart
Beating at peace.
You whisper to the senses
The lessons needing to be learned,
To be held true to all that is
To all that matters.
Strength buoys me in this movement
As I drift closer to shore
In reach of all I can feel,
To all that was meant
To set this love so free.
The anchor untied
Freedom of lightness inspires
To return bearing treasures
Of gifts of the sea
Of the essence of me.

Influenced lately by the new moon, being born in the sign of Cancer and feeling so loved today and also so very blessed at the gifts of words from wise friends.

Lifted


Through space and time
Miles away I close my eyes
See you standing there shining
Like you always do,
Like you know how
To reach across
The words at your fingertips
Gifted to the world
To hands open
Waiting and open
To receive.
And I love you,
Your special ways
And I sit here smiling just because
I felt that energy
Spanning across this universe
Touching me lightly
Like a silent blessing
To live
To dance
To just be.

Thinking of a special friend whose words just lifted me so very high.

Star sister climbing


She seeks her new horizons
Beyond the stars she gazes
Her feet rushing forward
Steps turn into a faster run
Flying she soars
Finding her tomorrow.
Dying to herself
Before the day she’s born
Lost in silver clouds
She moves effortlessly now.
Seeking the eternal sunshine
That turned her eyes so green
Running free I see
The vision as I close my eyes
Lost in silent reverie
I miss the friend
No longer still
Flying away
She has found
What she had looked for
The place among stars
Her sisters of the cosmos
Her mother of the shining moon
I turn away alone
Better for having known
But sad for the emptiness
That now remains.

Her words


Jars of words
Fleetingly passing
From thought to wisps of paper
Smiles in ink
Tucked away
Like birds in a cage
Trapped.
Her words moving
Pushing against the bonds
Seeking escape to be free
upheld and flying away
Into the atmosphere
Feathers moving
In bliss of love.
Her words falling
Touching down gently
Upon the lonely souls
Lost to her
Yet still remembered
She remembers the sense
The feel of each one
Like a precious gift
She gives her words
Wings to fly.

Fine things


Under a balmy sun filled sky
They came together
The variety of people
Quiet to boisterous
Beautiful to amazing,
A day of those who see
Of those that believe.
Feeling quite out-of-place
Thinking this is not for me
Not good enough
I do not belong
Amongst the fine ones present,
I was mere comfy diner fare,
Not gourmet by far
And he came to me
Arms wide open
And eyes alive
Soul on fire
And a smile that called for ray bans.
Suddenly seeing that I was so wrong
That this is where I needed to be,
The words all I needed to absorb,
Like platters of the finest cheese
Sips of the light to hearty wine
A place that became home
For too short of time.
Energy coursed through
The once tired and weary soul,
Greeting the sun
Chasing a nap afraid to miss
One single moment
Of this island bliss.
Walking and talking
Laughter and tears
But the beautiful friends created there,
Plane carried away
Far from the sun
Back to the ice
Back to the plain.
But something so magical happened
Between that first day and now
I see the faces
Photographs and lovely memories
And I am not alone,
And I am beautiful
And I am the finer things
I had desired,
All along deep within
Set free like the drawn out cork
And I flow free
In peace and love
As I wash down the last little drop,
More please from the bottle
Of never-ending happiness.
Cheers to the days
Sweet memory replays
And I shall drink to that.

To one of the first friends I met on my way to discover what lay below and most importantly uncovering what lay within. To Appio in deepest appreciation.

Strength of a soul


She wraps her hands round
The creatures
Far and wide
Of every land
Embracing with love
Shining with that fire
That burns so brightly inside.
So strong
Yet so gentle
Kindest souls vibrate
Energy and waves of joy
With smiles that melt
The strongest heart
She remains in the mind
Long after she is out of sight
Words and memories
The giving soul
Of woman.
She comes to dreams
Inspiring thoughts
For the dawn of
Mornings light
Leaving you free
The baggage of nightmares
Dropped and left behind
The promise of all that will be
The truth of fact
The dreams spiraling upward
The waves sent out returning
Bearing gifts of this universe
And the greatest of all
The simple blessed
Gift of a friend.
I sit before her humbled
At the glow of life and love
Exuded from within
Thankful for the moment
As you hugged me in that
Soul filled embrace,
To look into your eyes and see
An amazing loving woman
Believing in me.

To one of the most amazing people I’ve had the honor to meet in my life. I am a better person for the gift of her friendship and her belief in everyone she meets and touches.
Leigh, to you with e utmost love and respect.

She will


Skies setting before her
Standing on her mountain
Sun shines down
She will
Search within to set free
The heart on the wind of
A bird flying free,
She will
Shout out to the world
Standing proud
She will
Set the pace of her love
And hold the world
Like a fragile baby bird
Setting it back
It too will find its way,
She will
Know in her deepest soul
That this here and now
Is all that matters
Here and now.
She will
Set the world alight
Peace and energy moving
Waves of the invisible
The light she shines
Around her
Within her
She will raise her head
She will be alright
With all that will come
For she will be
A part of the equation
A piece of the endless puzzle
That always seemed to be missing
That unknown factor
The piece that she is.
She will be strong
She will be loved
She will be
All she ever longed for
And all she ever needed,
As she wraps her arms round
Those she finds
She will finally see
Reflected in all she holds dear
That image of good
She will
As she is.

Life of color


We danced the street
lights moving to the beat
of a hundred feet
a living wave
of laughter and song
the life of color
alive at night.
We give voice to the darkness
moments that will never
happen the same way again
and we were the rainbow
that brought smiles to
nameless faces we passed
and we were one
rippling like rain
blending like watercolor
on parchment.
We lived the dream
rocking the party
of each street we cross
harmony choir of happiness
dance walk past the shining shops
see the smiles
see the wonder
as energy moved us
a current of charged souls
sending vibes of happy
and my soul smiled
suddenly.
