Dancing In The Sun

Just a few are gathered now
In a place so light and free
Just a few converging
One of them could be me.
*
Just a few assembled
To dance under a sinking sun
Soon nighttime will gather
You won’t find them on the run.
*
Amassing love and peace
Souls create a true convergence
They practice and rehearse
Creating a love-filled resurgence.
*
We will keep on dancing
Moving under a star-lit sky
Spinning and twirling
We are free until they die.
*
All will still be singing
Those precious songs from within
There are no words, only space
Little comforts in this tailspin.
*
It will surely end in death
But at least we will be free
All certainly ends with nothing
And the same will be of me.
*
Until that time I will keep dancing
Singing until I am free
Until then you will find me twirling
Living, a mind full of God’s esprit.
*
Darling, you can keep on dancing
For it will set your spirit free
You may look within your own sweet self
Gazing deeper still to see.

Welcome the Eternal Flame

It may seem dark and stormy outside
And it may be tempting to hold onto
Those dark feelings, the pain, the anger.
*
But today, we can usher in a brilliant light
A light that lives on within the heart
A light that no man can dampen.
*
Just imagine, your whole being
From head to toe, your whole being
Soaked in a healing, loving light.
*
That light then concentrates in your heart
And with every heartbeat, it arises
Spilling and spreading out into the world.
*
This gift of eternal love and light
Is yours, it’s free, and it’s right there
Inside your heart forever.
*
Open to its presence and step right in
Radiate that light to all in need
It’s your own eternal flame.

Reflection

Look out your window

And notice the still quietness

A calm and quiet river

Reflecting back all she sees. 

Trees float gently on her surface

Golden in the early morning light. 

Clouds on the horizon

Puffy cotton gliding lightly on the surface.

And mighty sun, she rises

Orange, red, pink, yellow

Vibrant mirror like presence.

This is the place where fire meets water

The impossible becomes reality

Right before you

River reflects life.

An Answer

He sent me an angel, but I chose not to see

The light that was pouring

From the being in front of me.

~

He sent me a light, so I could now know

That I was no longer alone

Somehow I failed to see it’s bright glow.

~

He sent me a message, written boldly in ink

Clear and articulate, oh so very neat

Yet I struggled again to see link after link.

~

Sadly I cried, until I finally asked him one day

Hey big old guy in the sky

Can’t you send me some answers, guide me on my way?

~

His face full of love, with a smile brighter than the sun

He laughed and he chuckled

It’s all right there, just stop from your frantic run.

~

Breathe he said, and you will know

So I breathed, sitting still

And it all began to flow.

~

The light, the stars, the sky all around

They too breathed out their knowledge

And life became profound.

~

Thank you, thank you, big man in the sky

And he laughed and he twinkled

Someday, he said, you will know why….

 

 

 

 

 

A circle

We formed a circle

Sitting around a center filled with love

And reminders: hearts, candles, light.

We listened

And we shared

We cried

And reached for rumbled tissues.

We sat in that circle and we realized

How completely broken and shattered we are

And how completely whole and loved we are.

In that circle, we were both and all.

Emotions came tumbling out of us

Unlocked by a greater presence.

So now we fly apart and away from the center

We continue on this healing journey

Grieving and healing, laughing and crying.

Answering the call toward love

That grew from moments in the circle.

Loss

When the loss is so great

And your heart feels beyond heavy

Saturated with grief and pain

Don’t run and hide in the fear

Rather open up completely

Let the grief swallow you whole

Let the pain tear you apart, bit by bit

Remolding your core of being

For when you open up to

The free falling dark abyss of grief

You will walk through that dark, fire-y, painful night

You will stumble and fall

You will ache and hurt

You will shudder and cry out

And you will carry on, forward marching

And emerge anew

On another side of this universe

Filled with peace, ease, love, and light.

So go now, and take all of your braveness

All of your love that you once knew for this precious lost soul

And allow it to propel you forward

Taking the hand of those who are likewise suffering

Together, you can scream through that dark abyss

Shed rivers of tears on the burning path

Rake your soul over the flames of death

And at last come to calm those fires

With your own healing river of tears

Be brave dear souls

And walk into that promise

Of a light filled peace

Emerging beyond the abyss.

 

Stars Align

I glance up at the moon

Singing that old familiar tune

I see the stars transform and align

Wondering now, is this some kind of sign?

*

Than my head, it starts twirling around

And the song becomes a pure light sound

Changing stars twinkling back at me

Whispering, just you wait, you wait and see.

*

Just you wait and see

The stars might collide for me

Just you wait and sit yourself outside

Take your seat at the universal ringside.

*

Watch the show, as it slowly unfolds

And your soul reaches out for its stronghold

So many rainbows come forth, rising with the sun

We are so far, far from being done.

*

Oh yes, let’s wait, wait and finally see

This moment is revealing the light from you and me

So now wait, wait and you will see

Give it the time, a day or maybe three.

*

Purple clouds emerge and chase the rainbows

Where they are headed, nobody knows

And those stars aligned, down they fall

Streaking through the sky like a multi-colored fireball.

*

Hurry now, don’t be too late

Chase those stars, follow your fate

Look into the steaming crater, see the light show

Shout and dance, share what you now know.

*

So hurry now, don’t be too late

Or wait some more and sense your own fate

Hurry now, and then see if you can wait

Brilliant stars align, you carry the weight.
