To The New Year

With what stillness at last 

you appear in the valley 

your first sunlight reaching down
to touch the tips of a few
high leaves that do not stir
as though they had not noticed
and did not know you at all
then the voice of a dove calls
from far away in itself
to the hush of the morning
so this is the sound of you
here and now whether or not
anyone hears it this is
where we have come with our age
our knowledge such as it is
and our hopes such as they are
invisible before us
untouched and still possible.
BY W. S. MERWIN

Heart’s Connection

                   You can talk

With someone for years, everyday, and still,

it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit

in front of someone, not saying a word,

yet you feel that person with your heart,

you feel like you have known the person for forever….

connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”

~C. Joy Bell C.

Heart's Connection

Remember

As I walk through life,

I look at all I have done.
I had wandered aimlessly,
And wondered what I have become.

I have been through so much,  
It is amazing I made it through.
The lessons I have learned
I am shocked I pulled through. Read more

Follow Your Bliss

The divine manifestation is ubiquitous,

Only our eyes are not open to it.
Awe is what moves us forward.

Live from your own center.
The divine lives within you.
The separateness apparent in the world is secondary.
Beyond the world of opposites is an unseen,
but experienced, unity and identity in us all. Read more

The Falcon To The Falconer

Unleash me

                        .  from your hand
And I will lance the light for you
I’ll cut a sword blade on the wind
And pennant it with flight for you
To signal I am yours
If you will free me to be true to you

Unleash me from your hand  
And I will mock the sky for you
I’ll pull the anger from the air 
And make the breezes sigh for you
To show you I am yours
If you will free me to be true to you Read more

heaven in her eye,
in every gesture dignity and love.

Straight to You


I set out on a narrow way many years ago

Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you
[Chorus:]
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
(Yes He did) Read more

The Longing; Waiting

It is difficult,

when faced with a situation you cannot control,

to admit you can do nothing.”

New Moon on New Years Day 2014

via New Moon on New Years Day 2014 | Boston Holistic Psychiatrist & Psychoanalyst.

On New Years Day 2014 there will be a New Moon. New Moons are always a time of new beginnings, of fresh energy, a time of focusing our attention and intentions. The New Year symbolically also shares the same connotation. So this is something worth noticing, because it does not happen frequently, a New Moon on New Years Day. Our felt experience of the energy created by the configuration of the planets on January 1st will set the tone for the rest of 2014. Read more

What you really love

“Let yourself be silently drawn

by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”

Flutter-bye Butterflies

My feelings for you

are growing stronger with each passing day and my knees become weaker at the sound of your name.

You make my heart skip a beat and make the butterflies in my tummy go wild.

 I miss you more and more with every passing day,I wish you were here and not so far away.  take a chance

I find myself thinking about you constantly, my thoughts know nothing more than the thought of you Read more

Angel and I

.

She always knows just what to say

My Angel gives me brighter daysAngel & I
She makes my monsters go away
My Angel loves to laugh and play

My Angel loves me through and through
She knows I love her so much too
My Angel and I stick like glue
She knows our love is more than true

She loves the silly rhymes I make
My Angel loves the games we play
She smiles at everything I say
My Angel loves me everyday

My Angel means her ‘I love you’s
She knows how to follow all my clues
My Angel knows I tell the truth
She cries when I say, ‘I love  you’

It’s Dark in Here

.

Shel Silverstein is one of my favorite poets. It began with The Giving Tree.

When friends or family have a baby, it’s a guarantee this book will one of the gifts I give.

I am writing these poems

From inside a lion,
And it’s rather dark in here.
So please excuse the handwriting
Which may not be too clear.
But this afternoon by the lion’s cage
I’m afraid I got too near.
And I’m writing these lines
From inside a lion,
And it’s rather dark in here.
Shel Silverstein

The Kiss

Are you shaken,

are you stirred

By a whisper of love,The Kiss

Spellbound to a word

Does Time cease to move,

Till her calm grey eye

Expands to a sky

And the clouds of her hair

Like storms go by? Read more

The reason I won’t be coming

because I waited outside of

Piccadilly Station

when it rained atop

a sea of black umbrellas

for hour after hour

and I watched with dripping skin

as the deluge hit the gutters

and drowned the littered pavements

on that day

and all that drizzly air

had the smell

of wishless pennies

and I thought about you always Read more
