Mary Oliver….she gave wings to to words

flying geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

a very special Lady, got her wings
Mary Olive went home Thursday, she
flies with the geese she always wrote about
She and her thoughts will be greatly missed
but will always be remembered
Take Care Mary Oliver…You will Always Matter…
I do not own images or song, i found them on the internet, i wanted

moments before midnight

a few moments before 2019

a few minutes before midnight
moments away from a new year
thoughts and memories take flight
flowing of happy and sad tears
letting go of what once could have been
holding on to the cherished thoughts
keeping them close within
leaving the behind the painful loss
lots to look forward to
blue skies, starry nights,and rainy days
lessons finished from what we learned too
we choose the path, our hearts know the way
a few moments to pause, looking back once more
so much to take in, in such a short time
the countdown begins, and the opening of a new door
smiling, sighing, we turn and leave the past behind
31 December 2018 – 1 January 2019
looking forward
Happy New Year
May your roads meet in the right place
hallowed ground, your sacred space
May you hear the secrets on the wind
whispers of what is to be, the ancients send
May the sun shine, leading you into a warm embrace
filling you with Glory and Grace
May you know love
for the soul knows it is neither more nor less,it is enough

wind swept days of Autumn
will not be forgotten
passing time into December
a time to remember
quiet moments of rest and reflection
a pause with no direction
coming home to hear one’s heart
where endings become a new start
reflecting on the good and bad
smiling at the days within happy and sad
people wander in memories we made
some have left… others have stayed
seeds have sprouted and returned to the earth
a cycle of natures death in each rebirth
voices grow still and quiet
though thoughts still take flight
welcome December and the gift she brings
a new song she will sing
a time for hope and faith
during this restful break


Christmas wish
a small token
of one word spoken
fills the air
as it is shared
a smile spreads
sending out invisible threads
to touch a heart
to become a part
of all that is
a Blessing is this
one small token
from a one kind word spoken

a cup of soul




the falcon once again, dares to fly
soaring high across the blue skies
whispers on the wind turns to her song
he listens, knowing he is never alone
the lady runs with the wolves,wild and free
not to be tamed she understands what is to be
she feels the wind, blowing through her hair
once again, she too takes the dare
circling high and wide, searching the lands far below
his heart calls out, finding familiar words he knows
too many miles, feeling lost without purpose
when the memory of destiny begins to surface
she struggles to find words to whisper on the wind
so many endings, searching,wanting to just begin
measuring the depth of emotions to share
thoughts within words to show she still cares
the falcon feels her before he sees his lady
with the wolves she runs through a field of daisies
he makes his descent, never letting her out of his sight
she feels him approaching, as the day fades within twilight
silence settles over the edge of the woods,
turning towards the energy, they both were quiet where they stood
smiles faded the many miles and years
breathless for what seemed an endless, flowing of tears
he beckoned her to come closer to him, taking a step
she stood still as if caught in an invisible web
his smile melted her frozen heart
with all the courage she could muster,she made a start
all seemed right, once more in this life
gone was the sadness,the lies,the strife
and just a she reached out her hand
she stopped, not wanting to understand
she realized he had called her into his dream
and sadly she knew what this would mean
he would haunt her the rest of her days
for once again , the falcon had no intention to stay
a dare given, a dare taken
the world once again was shaken
though she smiled as she sat up in bed
she’ld just go run with wolves instead
as the falcon flew away again
she heard his song on the wind
another time, another place
another promise to find a way to stay

long ago

morning whispers

long ago…within our youth
we did seek the sacred truth
finding a never-ending change
spanning an infinite range

we spread our wings to soar
faraway the lion roared
the dragonfly held ever so still
quietly observing in the mid-Winter fields

destiny roads were broken
thoughts spun into words were spoken
dreams were born
among the trees one Autumn morn

do no harm, so mote it be
the spirit’s soul soared free
love within life came alive
spreading far and wide, it thrived

many seasons came and went
truth within was content
constant change spun its web
far from chaos’s flow and ebb

wonders never cease to amaze
filling each with divine grace
truth was found, held within the heart
dreams came home as we discovered love never departs

a quote about whats important


Christmas wish

Christmas is in the silence

of a wish

surround within love that’s timeless


a heart filled with light

from beyond

shining through the darkest of nights


Christmas is a truth so deep

carried within one’s soul

it never sleeps


a tear that flows beyond sadness

knowing it will reach it’s destiny

despite all life’s chaos and madness


Christmas is a moment of divine peace

to remember for an eternity

a birth of love to be released


a hope to know why you are here

a faith to except the lessons

a spirit to grow through the years


Christmas a moment in time

to let go of expectations

leaving the human experience behind


if only for a moment to know divine rest

to kneel before a greater purpose to be

a love that has no need to ever forget

it’s the only gift you need

Harvest Moon

Harvest moon setting1

the Harvest moon hung like an ornament in the sky

stars surrounding her,fading into the break of daylight

She began Her descent in the West

beginning Her daily rest


Autumn slipped by Summer,bringing her winds of change

flowing down from the mountain range

a chill fills the air right before daybreak

one last whisper of Summer escapes


forgive yourself…..Believe in love again

know all ending will be a beginning again

feel the magick begin to breathe once more

absorb its passion deep within your soul’s core


gather the harvest as far the heart can see

nourish the spirit to once again soar free

a season to rejoice in all Her abundance

surrendering within love gives one back independence


Autumn slipped by Summer in a blink of an eye

cooler winds bring Winter soon,when the snow shall fly

to each season find the purpose of your life

forgive yourself…Believe again…it is time
