True Creator

The New Earth is not a thinking earth
it does not think its way into creation
it has been here in your midst all along
constantly creating, growing, expanding
with Divine intelligence
inspired by your heart’s desires

Many speak of being vs doing
however, doing is not the issue
the earth is active with doing
present with all that is
constantly evolving
without the need to think

The earth is not clouded over
by a mind intent on understanding
for it has an innate knowing

It is the New Human, the Divine Human
who is willing to go beyond the mind
as a true Creator creating a New Earth.

Blended Human

The child within me
continues to giggle
with the playfulness of life

The crone within me
has gathered the wisdom
from all my experiences

Together
they blend into a
wise
loving
compassionate
joyful
human

Who savors
and honors
all the sacred gifts
of being human
in union with
Mother Nature
who has always been
my most esteemed
partner in life.

Rhythm of Life

Ebb and Flow . .
Ebb and Flow . . .
the simple rhythm of life

Isn’t it time
we learn to flow
with the ease and grace of it
rather than attempting to control the tides.

Sovereign Bubble of Creation

In my sovereign bubble of creation
floating aloft on new earth
tending the ancient sacred seeds
brought with me into this lifetime
allowing them to absorb
the nutrients of Love and Joy
generating from within my heart
nurturing them daily
free of external stimulus
that has long attempted to stymie them.

I feel them stirring
preparing to crack the casings
that have held them safe
until their time has come
to push through the compost
bursting forth to the light
to unfold their precious leaves
don their glorious blossoms
in dancing multidimensional colors
and offer their bountiful fruits.

It takes a sovereign being
to carry these ancient seeds
to protect them from hungry eyes
to not lose them among the throngs
of excessive mental activity
amidst the crowds of overactive humans
doing senseless things
attempting to overpower one another
without a care for others
without a care for the planet.

The old earth had no place
for these exotic creations
for they would have been squelched
and tread upon by those
who thought themselves
in control of creation
but man has no control over nature
earth continues to evolve
no matter what humanity may think
She is in control.

In my sovereign bubble of creation
floating aloft on new earth
Gaia opens her ams to me
inviting me into her most secret places
yet unseen by human eyes
enfolding my seeds within her heart
purring with sweet love songs
no longer lullabies to keep them safe
rather new vibrations to awaken and thrive
with vibrant new colors, new scents, new joy
new creations never seen or experienced before.

It is time. . .
New Earth has awakened
in my sovereign bubble
no longer aloft . . . I AM Creation.

Dancing in the Light

’Tis winter solstice
when the earth takes a pause
the nights grow long
and the days grow short

A time of rest
and a time of silence
a time to take a deep
and precious breath

A time to linger
within the sacred womb
of primordial creation
preparing to birth anew

Then with an ardent exhale
the light bursts forth
with an invitation to dance in
new exciting potentials

So dance Beloveds dance
inviting all to join us
the wee ones, the critters
and of nature’s spirits

For behold
we have all been
birthed Anew.

Light of the Full Moon

The full moon
is a reflection
of the Light of the sun

When you
look at the moon
she is a reflection
of the Light that is you
reflecting your own
Divine Wisdom
back to you

Do not allow
astrological predictions
or advice from another
to influence the Light
of your own Inner Wisdom
being reflected back to you.

The Illustrious Moon

The illustrious moon
who waxes
and wanes
month after month
year after year
decade after decade
over eons
beyond time

She who speaks to me
in many guises
showing herself
as a mere sliver of light
or the fullness of
an eclipsed blood moon
reflecting in the eyes
of the owl who sees
the wisdom
of all-that-is
in the midst of
the deep dark night

’Tis only now
I realize
she is simply reflecting
the wisdom
of Who I AM
the wisdom
distilled from
all my human experiences
the wisdom
that speaks from my heart.

Expressions of Joy

Joy expresses itself in a multitude of ways

for the one who is just coming out of trauma
it can be a flicker of light amidst the darkness

for the one birthing a child
it’s a joyous burst of unconditional love

for the one walking the forest
it’s an appreciation for the beauty of nature

for the one in relationship
it’s the pleasure of sharing with another

for the artist
it’s an infinite array of color

for the musician
it’s an intricate harmony

for the poet
it’s articulated with words

for the mystic
it’s the contentment of being

for the child
it’s the glee of life itself

Joy can be quiet and sublime
Joy can be explosive and exuberant

The ultimate Joy
is when we realize
joy is innate
always present
pulsing through our blood
as the stardust
from which we’ve incarnated.

Magic of Creation

Life itself is pure magic
the sensuality of it
effortlessly draws me
into its creation
to savor and enjoy
with sheer delight.

There is nothing I need do
for my human attempts
are poor imitations
of manipulating energy
in tired old way
reproducing more
of what already exists.

The magic of creation
is the joy of expressing
with its radiance
effortlessly dancing
throughout all of life
continually creating anew.

I surrender my old ways
of attempting to create
I revel in observing
the magic of creation
with new awareness
new appreciation.

I step into its sublime beauty
and savor the deliciousness of it
I sing with the playful
etudes of creation
I dance with its infinite
new orchestrations.

Moon Within Me

There is a moon within me
that answers to She in the sky
waxing and waning
with the rhythms of her lunar sequence

Deeply She dives into the darkness
in search of the wisdom
that has been so craftily hidden
on the far side of the moon.

With each successive evening sky
ever so slowly she rotates
revealing her feminine wisdom
one juicy morsel at a time.

Until the full radiance of her face
smiles upon me with all her passion
whispering to me from high in the sky
and from deep within me, I answer.
