MONDAY’S POEM: Cosmic Aura

October 27, 2014 Leave a comment

In case you hadn’t noticed, dear reader, I love the Fall. For many reasons it is my favorite season. One thing I particularly enjoy is watching the changing qualities of the light. Every day seems different, but the underlying quality is gold. My last couple of poems posted here are recent ones as I relish these shortening days filled with wonderful light, color, sounds, smells, all those sumptuous “flavors” of late harvest (so full and sweet) and the coming cold!

Cosmic Aura

Bright day follows cool morning rain.
That tale lingers in the glisten on the deck,
The scattering gray at the eastward edge.

Now is a fine day dawning.
There is gold lighting the canopy.
The trees reflect the Cosmic Aura.

That radiant light begins within,
Extends outward to fill
The entire known Universe –

And beyond (we don’t know much!).
It is a deep light, endless,
Dancing ecstatically at the edge,

Holding boundless love
In the gossamer fingers of God,
Arms of Goddess holding Cosmos to her breast.

Monday’s Poem: “Will We Survive?”

December 24, 2012 Leave a comment

We made it through the Solstice! And now we are heading into Christmas 2012. We have come through another circle, another year. And as we wind 2012 to a close I do consider where we are going. My “team” from the future, my “Floating Heads” – QRS – are whispering in my ear. It’s time! It’s about survival! And I think they must have dictated this poem to me. Happy Chirstmas Eve!

Will We Survive?

The great wheel turns
Through the black cosmos
Always returning to the
Surviving another ending.

The cycles repeat
Monotonously consistent;
Yet each repetition
Carries change,
Signaling adjustment.

We return again
To a place of origin;
One more karmic turn,
Have we changed enough?
Will we survive?
