THE COPPER CORE OF STARS

 

PicsArt_07-19-09.28.00

Riding atop a moonlit wave

reality appeared in a flash

that lit up the night sky

 

sudden illumination

moment of creation

in the pure light of love

 

it touched a place deep within

where I sensed trace elements

assemble and conceive

 

and I saw the face of my soul

in the birth of perfection

reflecting in a mirror of fire,

 

the copper core of stars.

 

Blessitude!

My soul is forever connected with this dear man, Fre’de’ric, from Words In The Light.  From the first moment we met we knew that our souls had made a contract to find each other…no matter how far away our physical bodies could stray.  We come together in spirit and our words are our gifts.  I hope you enjoy!!

LOVE IS THE BRIDGE

Oh, Little orange beaked bird

I see you in all your glory

Thanks for showing us your beautiful soul

20160715_082110

Yes!  I’m still here…looking at you!

(I have never seen this kind of bird before!  He is an American Oystercatcher.  I think he was a Happy Birthday Bird for a friend of mine!  He knows who he is :)  Love you!)

The air was clear and the rising sun

sparkled off the cold waters

20160715_083606

And believe me

as each wave met my feet

it took my breath away

20160715_083643

Catch a wave

and ride to shore

in rough and tumble surf

Feel the balance

as Mother Nature moves

to the rhythm of her soul

20160715_084016

Peeking through pillars

the Light struck me

with a clarity

that went straight to my heart

2016-07-16 17.35.35

And then I saw a bridge

and I knew that LOVE

is the connection,

LOVE

IS

THE

BRIDGE

That will bring us all TOGETHER!

Blessitude!

ALMOST PARADISE ~ Multiple Haiku

ALMOST PARADISE

PicsArt_07-15-07.00.27

 

When your dream depends

On someone else to come true

There is always risk

*

What someone else sees

Is more likely THEIR vision

What is best for them

*

Not meant to deceive

They don’t even think about

How it could hurt you

*

It’s better for you

To do the hard work yourself

And to turn inward

*

You then are the one

Who designs your own blueprint

To make things work out

*

No interference

Exactly what you vision

Your dream is fulfilled

*

No regrets at all

For the time spent together

Wish them well…move on

 

Blessitude!

EVER TREAD SO LIGHTLY

20160629_131148

Ever tread so lightly

In the landscape of my soul

So that I may walk among flowers

And smell their thoughts

20160629_131141

Ever tread so lightly

That I may hear a secret

That is whispered in the wind

That the melody of my desires

Come back to me again

20160629_131129

Ever tread so lightly

That all is not lost

That everything plays a role

In the story that unfolds

20160702_151122

Ever tread so lightly

That I remember who I am

That I remember who you are

That I remember the connection

To the symphony of colors

That which created the story

In the first place

20160702_151102

Ever tread so lightly

Move without sound

Hear with my heart

See with my soul

And know no bounds

20160702_151135

As you read these words may you have a memory of the Divine Spirit that you are.  In light of the turmoil that erupts in our midst, may the light of our love and our peace radiate to the injured parts of our world, and let there be healing.

Blessitude

7/8/16,

DRAGLIONI

“DRAGLIONI”

2110

There he is…DRAGLIONI!  He is a 23″ long x 8″ wide x 2″ deep, decorative fused glass plate.  Draglioni was a labor of love, and in the end he represents so much about my life at this stage.

He started with an idea…a plan…a drawing.

2009

Then an array of beautiful colored “Bullseye” glass was purchased (this time with the knowledge that “stryker” glass changes colors😉 )

1500

Next came the cutting…and cutting…and fitting…and grinding!

1835

Once all the pieces were made to fit the next step was a fuse firing in the kiln.  The fuse firing does exactly what it sounds like…it fuses all of the different pieces of glass into one.

1960

And then the piece is put on a mold and fired again…a “slump” fire.  It is so cool that the “flat” piece “falls” into the mold…and doesn’t change the design!

Next, for kicks you enter it into a “Glass as Art Competition,” not because you think he will win, but rather because Draglioni took about 60 hours to complete and he was made with love…so you enter him in the competition so people can see him, and feel his love!

2381

And to your absolute surprise and delight, Draglioni wins 3rd place in his category! 

It was so nice to hear his name called at the artist’s reception.  But the best part of Draglioni was CREATING HIM!  Oh, and the bag of goodies for winning was nice too:)

2386

I waited a long time to post about DRAGLIONI.  I thought that this was the start of something really special…a beautiful art form that I loved and the ability to create with a very dear friend.

But this is LIFE…and sometimes life has a mind of its own.  The ten year friendship came to an abrupt halt with no signs of being able to be repaired.  Along with the friendship, my ability to create in her studio has also ceased. 

It has been a time of great mourning.  All I can do is rejoice for the time we had together and be thankful for the experiences that were wonderful.  I don’t profess to understand WHY things happen, but I know they happen for a reason.

While I don’t know if I will ever work with glass in the distant future, I know it is not a part of my life now.  I am BLESSITUDE…”so blessed and full of gratitude” for this part of my life.  And DRAGLIONI will ALWAYS have a place in my heart…as will my friend.
Thank you so much my friends for being such a wonderful source of love and support.  Your words and thoughts mean more than you will know.

Wish you all a beautiful Sunday filled with love!❤

Blessitude

THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY

 Screenshot_2016-06-18-17-57-41-1-1

 

THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY

 

There is a sadness in the air.  Even the birds can sense that humanity is hurting, suffering.

 

I look and I see mourning, and if not mourning I see fear disguised as anger and prejudice.

 

The coming together eases it a bit, but I wish in time the souls who are here at any given moment could look in another’s being and recognize we are not very different at all…

 

We all have a place and a right to live our lives while traveling here together.

 

The ride would be so much nicer if we were surrounded by love and respect.

 

Stand and offer your hand to your fellow being.  Recognize that they have pain and struggle and they are just trying to get by.

 

Recognize that “your way” is right for you, just as “their way” is right for them.  Neither right…neither wrong…just different.

 

If we could honor that the differences we see make up a WHOLE…they fill the missing pieces, and one is not better without the other…rather we are strengthened when we allow and join…

 

Then we create THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY, rather than the HOLE IN HUMANITY!

Peace.

Blessitude

Let Me Introduce You…

I’m so excited to share two of my favorite people…both who’ve just published books!  My blogger friends use words that will touch you…I promise!

If you don’t already know them, please go visit their blogs, and if it feels right to you, invite their words into your home!

2016-06-07 18.23.13

Dennis Ference, at MERGING TRAFFIC, captured my soul with the first words I ever read by him.  There is a soothing “knowing” that he shares which can only come from a place of deep understanding.  I picture turning on a faucet of love, and the “water” that comes out is his words.

Dennis’ book, “From the Water’s Edge ~ Daily Offerings for the Wayfaring Soul,” is a compilation of 365 poems, one for each day of the year, and the poems are accompanied by photos taken by Lily (read a favorite story about Lily) his beautiful granddaughter.

You can purchase Dennis’ book at the following places:

CREATESPACE

AMAZON

Kimberly Harding, at SOUL HEALING ART, is a very gifted woman who pairs her beautiful art with words that deliver a dose of medicine to the soul!  I am amazed at the bounty of her creative prowess.

A long time fan of Kim’s, I have witnessed a very clear shift in her energy of late.  She is standing in her power and it is displayed so beautifully in the way she marries her blessed words with her art.

You can purchase Kim’s book at:

AMAZON

Thank you, my friends, for allowing me to share these incredible people with you.  I hope you all are swimming in Blessitude!❤
