Gaian's Poetry Showcase

"A light came and kindled a flame in the depth of my soul. 

A Light so radiant that the sun orbits around it like a butterfly."

~ Rumi  ~

Gaia, the beautiful, rose up,
Broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base
Of all things. And fair Gaia first bore
The starry Heaven, equal to herself,
To cover her on all sides and to be
A home forever for the blessed Gods

Hesiod

*¨*•.¸¸GARDEN SONG•*¨*•.¸¸

We are the children of creation
Drawn out of the night
To be the stewards of the garden
and keepers of the light
Let us sing the garden fruitful
and chant the water bright
Tune the air to clarity
and dance throughout the light
May we and our descendents
walk in beauty all of our lives

~Tai~

The end of a season taps on the roof

Bringing messages in Morse code

In a few hours, winter's arriving

It's going…

Talking to the powers…

Opening pathways to follow

Attaching pieces of memory

From places I thought…

I Believe

A child asked me if there is a Santa

I could see the hoped for yes in her eyes

I knelt and spoke to her directly…

I work diligently to keep them at bay

Help others, volunteer my time

I constantly research and try to learn

Stay…

This is the prayer of each:
You are the source of my life.
You separate essence from mud.
You honor my soul.
You bring rivers from the
mountain springs.
You brighten my eyes.
The wine you offer
takes me out of myself
into the self we share.
Doing that is religion.


Rumi
