Beyond human symbols and prejudices, Light takes many forms.

Craft Table

Taking time out from crafting, my daughter and I are enjoying these flowers and puzzle on our table for a while. Like breathing, inspiration will eventually come to start the creative process for new projects to be expressed here on our craft table. Then, when these flowers and puzzles and projects are long forgotten, this photo will help us remember this time and this table of flowers and the puzzle we worked on together.

The Prejudices of Geography

 

The Prejudices of Geography (my digital composition)

We Humans are a funny lot!
Our Intelligence has not
evolved beyond the prejudices
of where we’re from
or where we now live
as if it is the sum
of who we really are.

Pre-judgments abound
with reasoning unsound
determining value and worth
of sacred life upon this Earth
based on where we’re from
or where we now live
on this tiny orb spinning in Space.

We attach our loves and hates
to North or South, East or West,
even Up and Down,
where notions of ‘good’ and ‘bad’
fill so many minds with fears
and all the primitive prejudices
of a perceptual Geography.

We Humans are a funny lot!

Every Winter Ends With Spring

 

Every Winter Ends With Spring (my digital music composition)

 

Every Winter Ends With Spring

Every end births a new beginning.

Every Winter ends with Spring.

Earth dances through the heavens.

We dance the Cycles Life brings.

Though it seems our lives have endings

and fearful judgments await,

the truth is there’s Only Heaven

and Life loves to Re-create.

Universal Grace

 

Universal Grace

I could have lived on any cosmic orb,

in any species’ fleshly form,

when I in silent stillness lay,

my life a willing sacrifice…

—I offered it to the ‘fire’ of God’s great Love—

that cleansing, enlightening, enlivening Energy—

that ‘fire’ of God’s great Love.

I could have lived on any alien world,

in any body however strange,

when I in silent stillness heard

the God of all Creation say…

—I AM the UNIVERSE—

and in the power of those few words

of all-encompassing Oneness

I knew the Peace and Joy of Grace.

Tulips Dance and Bow

Tulips Dance and Bow (my digital music composition)

 

My friend, what do we really know?
Even though cut, the Tulips grow.
I wonder how they dance and bow
from their Stage of water in a vase
to our delight and our applause.
They give us such a lively Show,
their Tulip Life, before they go…
Dying Flowers, how do they grow?
