The subtle flight of love

Snapshot_20110727_9The subtle flight of love…

It takes flight

in the thoughts

of ourselves (and others),

spreads its wings in our actions,

 flies to the hearts

of our beloveds

beyond the beyond.

If you knew…

Snapshot_20130705_2

If you but  knew

You had just this moment.

If you but  knew

You had just this day.

If you but knew

You had just this week.

What would you do different?

How would you act?
What would you say?

If what you are doing, here, now in this moment

Will help you or another be strong

Then you know you are living your purpose…

That loving in life is your song.

There is a certain quiet moment

Within which I start my day.

Knowing thou are with me

As I walk the narrow way.

The gratitude I am feeling

Fills my heart with Joy.

In thy Presence…

Yes, I know, This is nothing  but Thy Love.....

In thy Presence
I have found
Thy Light,
 Thy Love,
Thy glorious Sounds.

Open my heart, That I may hear
All the blessings which surround me here.

Open Soul that I might serve
 Being ever grateful
(Even when life throws me a curve).
Ever mindful of my mission.
Always to thy Voice
giving reverent submission.
Ever present wondrous Spirit

Open Soul that I might hear It.
May thy Presence
Help me Be...
Less of Self
More Like Thee.
As the Love flows
through my veins
Make my mind become more sane.
May my limbs be willing still
That I may always do thy Will.
I would more humble be
To show thy Love in all I do.

More of Thee
More, oh more,  like You.
Take my willingness

just for today
Please, Help me,

make my path

Thy narrow way
Each step, each moment

a living prayer

As I surrender layer by layer.

In thy Presence
I have found
Thy Light,
 Thy Love,

Thy glorious Sounds.

Standing in the Cleansing Wind

Standing

in the cleansing wind

The pine sings to me It’s  song.

As It’s melodies flow through

 to my very being;

I am joined

with the visibles and invisibles

That I,  as Soul,  am seeing.

Dancing feet within  me

Desire to drum

the earth quite strong. 

The blessings gather closer,

surrounding me,

entering me,

caressing me, 

All the Elders in a throng.

The sky that once was

so full of rain

Is  now an array of

    sparkling stars

Who have returned home again.

Standing in the cleansing wind, 

I see my purpose

now quite clear

To always be of service

To  ALL your children here.

I shall serve

401508_4516052827869_821649473_nWhen life

is throwing me

its last curve…

I shall serve.

When all about me

is chaos and loss

I shall serve

making love “the boss”.

I shall serve

in the solitary way

Of sending love

 each and every day.

I shall serve.

Over the months of living and loving, I have enjoyed my wee bit of service here on the planet and here in cyberspace loving you.

Surrender, sweet surrender

Surrender, sweet surrender
Cuts Soul like a knife.
Without it I am nothing
Because of it, there is strife.

Surrender. sweet surrender
On my knees I bow.
With surrender, I am willing
To be teachable
Please just
Show me now.

I am, willing, to be willing.
I need a little time.
Surrender, sweet surrender
It ain’t just a pretty rhyme.

Surrender, sweet surrender
The story of my life.
Without it I am nothing
Because of it, I am a slave
To knowledge,
To freedom,
To recovery,
To discovery.

Surrender, sweet surrender
Please don’t let me go.

May I serve

as  I make

a conscious choice.

May I  surrender

 listening to your Voice.

May I dedicate

each step I take

 in your service.

May I speak

my truth honestly…

no more being nervous.

May I see

your beauty hiding behind

and through every smile.

May I open my heart

as I travel each and every mile.

May I  listen

always to your

Will in my life.

May I always rejoice.

May I always be listening

surrendered to your Voice.

May I be grateful

for all your blessings.

May  I have acceptance.

..no  more second guessing.

(As I look at the trees all covered with frost

My heart goes out to those lonely and lost.)

May I give

of my pittance.

May I share

it with joy.

May I do your will .

May I throw

my perceive troubles

over the hill.

I ask these things Master

On Soul’s bended knee.

May I today

be more like Thee.

Box it up, throw it away…..

Victorian Shell Work Gift Box

Box it  up, throw it away,

this is the day

of new beginnings,

the joy that you have will stay.  

The year of learning and lessons,

gave sorrows and many blessings.

Now the spiritual year is the focus.  

The year of consecration.  

The year of dedication.  

The year of service.  

For all the wee lessons along the way…

box it up, throw it away,

this is the day of new beginnings,

the joy  that is you  will stay.
