the gift

i looked up at venus
floating above the nashville skyline
beside her dressed in the slinkiest gown
smiled the moon
very new and shiny
they were doing the tango
winking at each other, telling secrets
recalling their younger years
when the earth was just a babe
those nights spent watching over her
singing her lullabies
rocking her in their sparkly harmonies

i couldn’t help but smile
soaking in their bliss
even though i didn’t know their secrets

life has a way of bringing me whatever i need
with all my questions, wonderings
quandaries, trivialities
i felt like i was handed a magic wand
a pot of gold, a warm hand to hold
an unshakable guarantee
that i was loved and watched over
and splooshed with magic

i took a deep breath
inhaled the stillness
of the deep indigo sky
and the gift
of being a dreamer

peaceful surrender

the clouds are speaking
to me in a language
i will decipher one day

the lake quietly
raises her rosy lips
in tantric prayer

evening descends
like a child’s
tansparent intentions

languid time
wrested from
the cares of the day

it’s 2014!!

A bit late but wanted to wish you all an awesome 2014!!!

I hope 2014 will hold for you dreams fulfilled, the wonder of magical moments, life-giving joy, more time spent laughing than worrying, and most of all a transcendence to feelings of well-being when outer circumstances may seem to indicate otherwise –  for we are all so loved beyond our comprehension — only a thin veil keeps us from seeing the deep, unique beauty that we are.

And let’s have fun!!
