The guardian of the heart

She stands as the guardian
Above the heart
Looking in all directions 
Seeing all 
The opportunities for love
For learning 

There are times though that the heart must rest
She guards then too
Rests alongside 
Wraps around

The heart needs rest
The mind also
That's why she stands guard
To remind gently

The child of the red birds

Two birds
One heart
A child

The mother protects
The father nourishes
Birds have different ways of being
The child learns to fly

Her heart is complete 
Two birds
One heart
A child

In the heart of the forest.

In the heart of the forest
There lives a guardian
Who watches the heart of the trees
Secret and precious, she loves them
Talks to them
Looks at the roots, sees the flow
Tends to the imbalances 
Touches the trunk
Strengthens the outer, the inner
Stares through the branches and leaves
Sings with the wind
Dances as they sway
All in the heart of the forest

A being of cloud and sea

These beautiful beings 
They don't conform to the rules 
They are born from the sky, the sea
They travel between as a bee to the hive
When they transform into the waters they become one
As One mind
When they ascend to the sky they become singular 
Always moving between between these realms
What messages to they deliver as they evaporate into mist?

Walking inside the clouds.

Walking inside the clouds
Visions of light and shadows 
Movement of light dancing in my hair
Singing in the distance, laughter
Swirling around me
Not solid, just out of sight...

Beyond sight.

Beyond the surface there are so many things to see.
You can't use your eyes.
You can't use what you think you know.
Only through seeing with your heart, your knowing, and letting go
Will you truly see.

Looking down from the clouds.

Looking down from the heavens.
They watch us.
They cannot change what we do.
So they change themselves hoping we will learn.
They show us things change from one moment to another...
It seems we have forgotten to look up, to stare at the sky.
Always looking down or at our phones.
Our minds fixed improperly - so fixed, inflexible.
Open your mind, stare into the heavens, the clouds.
Expand, be flexible....and let go.
Become like the sky - open.

She dances with dragons.

She dances with dragons.
Not here, but where the dragons live.
Inside dreams, inside the realm of magic.
She knows how to walk through the walls that separate us from them.
They are thinner than you would imagine...
Actually that's the secret...imagination and trust.
She trusts and so she arrives dressed to dance.
When you dance with dragons.
It's all circles and energy.
Her dress curls around her....
Happily spinning inside thier coils she laughs
Laughing in the pure joy of the one who dances with dragons.

The Center

Going within.
Finding the source.
Endless like the Ocean.
Vast like the sky above.
The center will bring you home.
The center is the beginning, the now.
Our heart can rest here.
Floating upon the surface, gently carried and nourished.

Not all angels are sweet.

Not all angels are sweet.
Not all angels are soft and gentle.
Some are made to be warriors.
This angel is all about what needs to get done.
Does he carry a sword?
No, he has truth.
Truth cuts deeper.
Truth can feel sharper than a sword.
Truth can lay waste to an entire empire.
It's a dangerous and precious weapon.
That's why some angels are given different wings,
Different tasks. 
Harder tasks.
Tasks that live outside light and dark.
Some angels live outside light and dark in order to serve other purposes.
It can darken and harden their edges, to protect their fierce mission.

Under the canopy

Laying under the canopy 
You can see the sunlight softly through the leaves overhead
You can see the end of summer 
Enjoying the last warmth of the sun
The last beauty of the leaves before they fall

Cave like and safe inside the canopy
Nature soothes us with her quiet song
The end of summer is upon us
Fall will be here soon and the canopy will fall 
to become the carpet underneath our footsteps

I think I'll stay here and linger a little longer
Enjoying those last moments of sunlight playing inside the leaves
Inside of summer.

The dragon lady and her clouds

The dragon lady and her clouds

Dragons love playing in the sky
They race around the sun 
And when they are tired they dive into the ocean 
Laughter and play in the deep waters
Clouds float up from their play
These clouds are magical
created from dragon breath
If you look closely they tell stories
Wonderful stories 

The dragon lady and her clouds
is the keeper of the stories
She loves the clouds and their stories
Her beautiful clouds.

The Lady of Summer

The Lady of summer is only here
for a short time
When she comes to visit
the time slows down and elongates into the warm horizon
Soft breezes and long days

Her beauty is vibrant
her clothing is that of the fully bloomed flowers
She is fresh, full of life

At the end of summer
she returns back into the summer lands
The land of fearie and of magic 

Upon her exit, the leaves dry up
The breezes cold
Life retreats into itself
Into quiet stillness.


On the pathway leading home
She turned to look behind,  
all she could see was her past.

The past was like a series of confusing roots
Looking tangled, going in every direction
But connected to something important.

Some say her past was not worthy of remembering
Looking at it she might judge that at times she seemed lost
Lost to people, to things, to her pain, to her pleasures....
All part of her connected to who she was now.

Moving forward she knew to not be afraid
to accept there would be times of feeling lost
That she would lose herself to any number of things both wonderful and unbalancing.
She would know too that she would continue to be found
Over and over again.
