THE VIOLIN

July 31, 2018

It began . . .

An ordinary day.

Then

I heard the sounds of peace and passion.

A duet that at once caught my breath

while also wrapping me in streams of gold.

My heart . ..my soul

Were fed as never before.

Should I dance or cry or laugh

Or indulge

In a banquet

Of all three

and more.

Music so sweet and gentle

Then suddenly it grew in magnitude

And repainted the landscape.

A love

Indescribable

Wrapped in a bow.

A NEW MORNING

July 23, 2018

If

Peace and passion

Do not travel hand in hand

All growth,

Perhaps even life itself

Comes to a halt.

THE SILENT SYMPHONY

May 11, 2018

I strode through the forest

or so I began

seeking silence . . .

seeking peace.

My thirsty soul knew I would find you there,

but I stopped and stood still among the greens,

the light filtering through the branches.

I was surprised by the very loudness of it all.

For I never realized

one could not hear the music,

the loving whispers in my soul,

my own silent hallelujahs,

without quiet surrounding me!

My senses stirred as never before

as I tasted your wine

and basked in the aroma

that is you.

My empty hands knew

that yours held mine

and the beauty .. .

your Light drew me in

as never before.

I am you – you are me,

we are one!

You speak without words

Yet your message is so clear

And I ride the flame

WHAT SPARKS YOUR FLAME?

Fueled By . . .

If

Peace and passion

Do not travel hand in hand

All growth,

Perhaps even life itself

Comes to a halt.

PASSION IS GOD’S GIFT!

Folks who soar through life without a trace of stress are generally better at hiding it!  DON’T COMPARE AND JUDGE YOUR FEELINGS!  FOLLOW YOUR HEART!

THE GREAT WEAVER

Tapestry

He weaves my dreams

Together with His own

And the result

Is far greater

Than anything I could imagine!
