Suffer Not

The rose
does not suffer
as she drops
her spent petals
to the earth.

She allows them
to drift
effortlessly
on the songs
of the wind.

She does not
attempt to direct
their landing place.
Nor does she
morn their loss.

Instead. . .
she revels
in the sharing
of her gift
to the soil
as nurturance
for all that is preparing
to come into bloom.

Garden of Eden

To see beauty
where there is none.

To recognize
the Garden of Eden
that is still
very much alive
beneath our feet.

This is Enlightenment.

This simple change
in perception
is enough
to transform
our world.

Ode to Winter Solstice

The eve of Winter Solstice
holds a magical air
for ‘tis the longest night,
with the richest fare.

Infused with wisdom,
unseen by most,
garnered by you
by your desire for growth.

In the morn,
the light filters in
and lo and behold
Awareness begins.

But without the darkness,
that rendered you wise,
the dawning light
would have nil to advise.

So sing ye an ode
to the bountiful darkness
for all the wonders
within the primordial womb.

Extraordinary

Normal is an elusive word
fabricated by man
nothing thrives
within the constructs of normal.

Nature is in eternal flux
that’s the way of nature
the way of the world
the way of the universe.

Normal doesn’t exist
because everything
that has ever been created
is extraordinary.

That makes You extraordinary!!!

The World of Fae

The world of fae surrounds us
Just a breath away
Hidden in the folds of time
Forever and a day.

It’s a world of glorious magick
A world of play
It’s a world of wonder
It’s the world of Fae.

You wonder how you’ve missed it
Up until today
The answer’s very clear my friends
You’ve been holding it at bay.

You played with us as children
Playing hide and seek
When we sang and danced together
in the glittering mystique.

We hide amongst the posies
Or in the branches high
We swirl with the stars
as we skip across the sky.

The times they are changing
Your eyes are open wide
As dimensions are unfurling
You can see the other side.

So come my friends and join us
Just step between the veils
It’s here your world is manifest
Hidden in the tales.

Tales of wonder, tales of Joy
Glorious tales of Love.
New worlds await you
Anchored from above.

You’ve always known the truth
That we hold your world in place
By sourcing all creation
Into your living space.

The world needs more Creators
There is no time to waste.
We’re inviting new partners
To joyfully co-create.

A new earth awaits
In answer to this call
If you choose to join us
We’ll have ourselves a ball.

So grab a wand that suits you
And touch it to your heart.
Where faerie magic gathers
For you to play your part.

Faerie Magic sparkles in your eyes.
Faerie Magic no longer in disguise.
Faerie Magic is bursting from your heart
Faerie magic has always been in within your heart.

Nature’s Quest

The mist of magic waft through the air
with whispers of mystical secrets.
The sacred fog wraps around me
in a blanket of infinite wisdom.

The foghorn sings its rhythmic dirge
taking me ever deeper.
Into the arms of my soul I dive
with complete lustful abandon.

The gulls overhead soar to and fro
drifting on the wind.
The sea laps upon the sand
caressing her sacred consort.

The sunbeams dance across the mist
creating delicate rainbows.
In one fell swoop the sun bursts forth
And the spell is completely broken.

But have no fear, it’s always here
the mists, the gulls and the sea.
Mother Nature is ever present
rocking us in her arms.

But it’s up to us to open our eyes
and see what once was hidden.
The truth of nature she holds dear
Always in abundance.

Now it’s up to us open our hearts
embracing all she offers.
Our partner in life she chooses to be
Are you open to receive her?

It’s up to us
to embrace all she offers.
As a partner in life
Are you open to receive her?

Open and receive her.
Open and embrace her.

Ancient Wisdom

Ancient wisdom seeps through my feet
as I walk barefoot on the earth.
Ancient wisdom sings through the wind
as it whispers in my ears.
Ancient wisdom washes over me
as I dive deeply into the sea.
Ancient wisdom blazes from my heart
with the fire of love.
I AM this Ancient wisdom,
for it emanates from within me.

Rose of Sharon

Petals unfurl in the shimmering mist
in velvet folds, soft and rich
droplets of dew shine like pearls
on you, the rose of Sharon.

Your fragrance fills the air so sweet
wafting across hills and vales
in the rapture of morning’s light
you, the rose of Sharon.

It hasn’t always been this way
a life of velvet and sweet perfume
many a blossom failed to open
as the rose of Sharon.

Thorns appear where never planned
at the time it may bring tears
but in the end tears turn to dew
crowning the rose of Sharon.

Now your petals unfurl in the sun
dancing in the sway of the breeze
sweet and sensual, fragrant and free
you, the rose of Sharon.

You’re the rose of Sharon
a beautiful rose of Sharon
Love embodied, radiant light
a beautiful, beautiful rose.

Love embodied, radiant light
a beautiful, beautiful rose.
a beautiful rose of Sharon.

“Consumed by Love” or “The Beloved One”,

Sister Gaia

From the depth of the earth to the height of the mountains
From the turbulent sea to the gentle rain
From the dark of night to the brilliant sun
From the quiet stillness to the roar of the wind
It matters not, for I love it all.
Oh my sister Gaia,
I bring my love to you,
I love it all.

When I walk the earth love seeps from my feet
As I pocket special rocks along the path
I am a caretaker of plants and trees
Grateful to share their abundance
How much matters not, for I’m so grateful for it all.
Oh my sister Gaia,
I bring my love to you,
I love it all.

I roam with the animals open to their wisdom
Soar with birds free in spirit
I attune to the earth with my blessings of song
Playing in gentle harmonies.
Oh my sister Gaia,
I bring my love to you,
I love it all.

I’m very grateful, so very very grateful.
Oh my sister Gaia,
I love you so.

I AM

I AM the mother who holds you close.
I am the father who guides you.
I am the sister who giggles with you.
I am the brother who protects you.

I AM the child you rock in your arms.
I am the puppy that nips at your heels
I am the neighbor that lives next door.
I am the waitress in the restaurant

I AM the sun that warms you.
I am the dark of night.
I am the moon that phases through your life.
I am the stars that twinkle overhead.

I AM the trees that sway in the wind.
I am the flowers that bloom at your feet.
I am the stone you skip across the sea.
I am the rainbow traversing your sky.

I am the words you speak
I am the songs you sing
I am the pictures you paint
I am al of creation.

I AM All-That-Is
I am present in everything
I am present in everyone
I AM you
together
We are All-That-Is.
