In the Garden
Nothing but simple divine life
In December’s pale light
When December’s pale silvery light colors the sky,
When the sun, now low, casts washed pastel hues
On the soon dimming day,
Then after a walk in the bracing air,
When the door has shut out the cold and dark,
We are we glad to sit by the fire with a drink
And share soulful reflections,
Glad for the warmth
And the companionship.
And then the sun came
And then the sun came
Bright Light all around
Enveloping us in warmth and Love
Only the blessed now is—
The birds singing
The breeze caressing.
Surely many are blessed like this
In quiet moments unexpected
Not noticing the Angels
And the doorway before us
We rise up renewed
But miss the chance to pass through
It’s here before us—
May we pass through
And begin to Be.
Lord, loose my tongue
Lord, loose my tongue
Let me share love
And the awareness of the moment
That we love one another just is
That we need to share our Hearts
Is to be human
Help me find the words
That express what IS
Help to stand in the Silence
May my words express the Self’s knowing
May my words express what we together know
The Truth is One
You are the Truth.
Rising into space
Arising from sleep we soar up
Like the lark, into the free space above,
Light filling us, glinting off our wings,
Exhilarated by the vast expanse
And the air around us, breathed deep, vivifying.
Like the bird, we have broken out of the shell
And fly free in God
We can now see far, new lands beyond the horizon
And everything is good, Divine and alive
As it has never been before —
Love Divine is all.
From beyond the grave
From beyond the grave does true love call
Feelings that forever more shall be
Like a star above, inshrined in me
As a compass through life’s stormy seas.
Love that in life’s busy din
Was oft ignored for ‘better’ things
Now with time I hear the call
And wish I’d known it early on
Touched by love I finally see
That all is lost save loving thee.
From the Divine You
Eternal Love this moment seen—
Life and Light beyond the seas
Of time and space revealed.
What Power and Force to hue through Space,
Linking now the world beyond
In a golden bower of timeless Love.
The Love you wield is a magic Power
Awakening us from sleep to Life
And bringing Joy and Peace from strife.
The Love you share is a gift from God
From the Divine you are
That’s Living now.
In your Light does Day begin
Is Life now sweet
And all hurt healed.
In your Love is fear removed
And Union felt
With all that’s Real.
In the sunshine of your Love
In the sunshine of your Love
All is fair, beautiful and joyous.
In your timeless summer land
Life is a song sung in a divine chorus,
A treasury to be explored and shared.
In the heaven seen in your eyes
Each moment is a blessing
And a rapture of Love.
Now Heaven moves into the world
An inner realm from beyond time
Now are we all set free
Awakened from our sleep
We are moved to dance and shout
Words we’ve longed to speak are spoken.
Wake up beloved
Wake up beloved,
For I'm giving you a good morning embrace.
In your eyes shines the same Love
In your Heart is the same Being
We are waking from a dream of separation
Into a new day of Divine Life.
One Self pervades the world
And a remembrance of who we really are.
Now we are Free and can dance in harmony
And Joy with all life.
Now we can truly Be
And bring forth the Kingdom of God
That we now live within.
The sun is shinning, the birds are singing
And the world is transformed in Love.
I dreamed I was a bird soaring through the clouds above
I dreamed I was a giant with strength second to none
I dreamed I was a deer running free through forest fair
I dreamed I was a fish splashing in the river clear
Then I dreamed I was a man laden with worldly care
And suddenly things didn’t seem so glad or fair
From youth I toiled and never knew why
Until I woke up one day and cried —
It was just another dream I’m glad to say
Now I’m back in Heaven where I intend to stay!
Her petals open anew
When jaunty April,
All wreathed in cherry blossom,
And green shoots opening to the sun,
Offers at last invitation in the perfumed day
To feel new life that now blooms all around,
So love too blooms in the heady light
And opens her petals and shielded joys
To thoughts long hidden by winters repose,
Everything alive freshly made
And the moment newly born.
Now do the bees seek the flower
And humankind a mate.
Eyes sparkling with new delight
Feelings arise from where they had lay
To burst forth into flower.
Dreaming in the sun
Sitting in the bright blue sky April sun,
Cool breezes thrashing the branches about
The chimes ringing excitedly in the warmth
I feel nothing could be better—
The day is mine without distraction
Everything is at peace
Directing my mind wherever I choose
Friends here and there send their thoughts
And I dream undisturbed.
Beyond knowing, there is a Realm...
In the bowered moment,
When embraced by Her Divine arms,
And all world seems like a fairy tale come to life,
What could we want that is not given,
That is not part of our Love complete?
Life is a wonder and a mystery—
A divine dream that has come to life.
And everything that we can conceive and imagine
Is as the dew on a magic realm impossible to know.
Opening like a flower
When the day unfolds like a flower in spring
Where the fairies dance and the sylphs doth sing
When life’s scents bespeaks another world
In blissed gaze magic now unfurled
Then will I and thou plight our troth
And speak the words long schemed
Remembered, another life upon us
Awakening from this worldly dream
What if we did only speak in verse
And every conversation did proclaim
Beauty, grace and harmony each hour,
Noble thought and love’s sentiment
With power to bring forth worlds
From far away now breathed into form
Minstrels and poets, bards and all
Gathering in joy at life’s behest
Glad to be and share together
Spirit’s blessings, Divinity embraced
Prose is too dull, that’s very plain.
Logic and judgement — the spirit’s bane.
The Heart is nourished on beauty and love,
Imagination and vision from above.
Let joy speak the words, let light fill the sky,
Let each share their song, let none be shy.
Giving all honor to She who creates,
Who gives life to Love and opens the gate.
Let each enter surely, let none decline,
The realm beyond, is really a shrine.
A land for the dreamers, and poets of song,
A magical realm where all are now One.
Each will be welcomed, all will be loved
Leave bags at the gate and meet your beloved.
Such is God that the Power that creates the boundless cosmos
Breathes hushed inspiration into our Heart’s.
Unbeknownst, the Power that spins the galaxies
Looks tenderly into our sleep, sprinkling stardust into our dreams
So that they sparkle with visions that will guide our lives.
How can we realize the hope of these intimations of the divine,
Where Love and Light Supernal reign?
What purpose is served by these dim heavenly refrains?
Only Love provides an answer
And a way to resolve our longing.
When summer comes
When summer comes and in fullness blooms
My love and I to the meadow will go
And there to lie in each other’s arms
While the sun shines down and the flowers grow.
There to dream and sweet thoughts to share
While embraced by God and her living brood
Wrapped in mystery and from time removed
In a livingness of life love hued.
Joy is the robin that sings in the field
Joy is day that is that is passed without care
Joy is the thought that comes out of the sky
And lights up our way on the heavenly stair.
So much is unknown we must honesty say
Like on a cloud or river we move each day
From where to where we do not know
But carried by love, it’s come what may.
Finding our cause
As we touch the divine in us
We cognize what moves us —
That divine idea that we give life to
That guides and gives purpose to our lives.
What is that idea that is who we are?
That defines our warp and woof?
Which Angel are we paired with?
Who gives form to our formless spirit?
Our spirit is of God and has a dream to live
We must find it ere we die, and give it voice
And form to bring it into life.
At this point along the path home,
memories fade into the bright light of day.
A loud peace resounds
and a stillness that fuses the moment,
The inward life becomes predominant,
I am not walking alone.
Soaring in the Infinite:
Soaring high in the sky,
a white bird sails with the sun.
Lost to all but the Infinite,
it will keep its mission inviolate,
trusting the winds
and an inner sense guiding,
feeling that exquisite bliss
that comes from total surrender
to the Spirit carrying it
to some end as yet unknown.
Like a dream its evanescent life,
crossing the vast sky
and many miles before land.
Sunlight glints and the free air exhilarates
wings lifting above all Earthly care
as sounds like hymns lift it gloriously higher.
Eyes scan the horizon where land turns to vision
and all merges in light divine.
To what end this call?
Space seems but the chamber of a divine Heart
we are soaring in, Angels accompanying,
Coiled deep within us
Waiting until we have suffered enough,
Waiting until we don’t care anymore
About fear or the world’s judgement.
Waiting until our spirit can’t stand it—
The confinement, the lies and the dull death.
Waiting for some spark that will ignite us
And set us off
To where, we don’t care —
But Lord it feels good to embrace life,
To live free
We’ve left the old life and comforts
And can hear the song of life again.
Take Her Holy hand
When we have tired of war, and pompous vain glory,
When have tired of death, pain and suffering,
While the birds sing to life and joy,
When we have seen the horror of hurtful words
And vehement thoughts, in our absurd battle
To be right and best,
Maybe we will put down our swords,
Open our hearts and minds,
Listen and really see.
There in silence, a maiden stands open armed
Offering succor, Love, and release
And a dream of life we’ve longed for.
Let us take Her Holy hand
Surrendering to spirit
What is more beautiful than a soul
consecrated to its transfiguring spirit.
Surrendering to that which is greater,
means taking over and becoming that spirit.
Something is given up for something more.
Consciousness ascends on the updraft of Love.
We are multidimensional beings.
We have a choice where on the spectrum
of consciousness we will be.
However, to ascend we have to release
the weights of fear and attachment.
We have to demonstrate our priorities in life
by what we give preference and greater reality to.
When we hear the call we must respond.
This is tested in the crucible of life.
Spirit is a fire that burns up all the dross.
Not for the self, but for the Whole.
Now that the sky is blue and all the brown twigs of winter are warmed in the sun,
I take the day to my breast and embrace it in love.
Pain and worry are soothed in the balm of this moment of light.
All the complexities of thought are reduced to a calm space of light and Love.
The Presence of God is sufficient.
My muse is as bright as a sunbeam, as diaphanous as a fairy—
A maiden formed of light and love,
A living angel from above materializing in my sight.
Now the air is sweet and life is rich
Of treasures suddenly revealed,
Now a song is sung
And music rung to make my Heart peal.
Joy for the dance of life
And quiet sharings of feelings together
Joy for the moment new
And the daylights ramblings of Love forever.
I dreamed today of a world at peace and lo, so it became.
I dreamed some more of a world as one, and one it now became.
I dreamed that Love filled every heart and joy filled every day.
No sooner was the thought released than so it all became.
Amazed I paused to consider how such power was mine to own.
I realized that the Truth of God is ever fruitful sown.
Though you might see abundant pain and flaws under the sun,
God sees only eternal Truth, and so it will become.
Each has a gift
The wren that flys about is part of me
Her care in finding seeds is plain to see,
The rose in flower gives joy for all to feel
Releasing her perfume in thankful peal,
The clouds that freely sail across the sky
Show love divine that’s not afraid to die,
Each creature has a gift they want to share
We learn from each, their offering a prayer.
Finding the way within
We’ve been on the outside of life
long enough, believing we were separate
and creating that experience.
However a new day is borning
and a gate is now open
through which we may pass
and begin to really live.
Feel the Love and joy
and surrender to the spirit
that would take you Home
where mystery and magic live.
We shall greet each other
in a grateful homecoming here
and begin a new time, a new Age together.
Here is nothing but to be
and express all that love is.
Now one with each other and life.
Spirit unfolds a divine moment ever new,
Living in beauty,
consecrating all to Her who is Life itself.
