"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

 WELCOME ♡

*¨*•.¸¸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~

"Throughout the journey to Paradise there will always be time for rest and spirit play; and in the career of light and life there is always time for worship and new achievement."

~ Urantia Book ~

I enjoy the company of my eight legged friends

They eat the things that crawl on the floor

The build their webs in unused corners…

Undiminished Love

In my dream, she gave me a hug

I woke up smelling her hair

There was warmth still, against my skin

Her scent…

The Raft Was Trashed

I found a cove along the ocean shore

The waters were black, deep

Sandbars were further out beyond it

An anomaly…

Harms Way

The dragonflies came by today

Found the bee on my windshield and took it away

They gathered in clouds doing their acrobatics…

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
