AUTUMN within the BIRCH WOODS

In the quietude

Of you

Nestled beside

The beloved birch

Cool breezes

Waltz around thy being

Whilst the sun’s rays

Warm with its caresses

The pond so blue

Moving so beautifully

Gently

And with calmness

Rocks along the banks

Damp and wet

Shimmering in the sunlight

Reflections

Of days

When the water lilies

Delighted

When the fish jumped and plopped

When the Great Blue Heron

Was in residence

When the red-wings tickled thy heart

With joy as they fluttered

And sung

Now sitting here

As the sunlight

Cascades down upon thy being

You delight

With your colorful charms

Of warm spicy hues

All around your banks

These are new moments

To place within the treasure box

Of thy heart

To be re-opened

Anytime and be filled

With the joyous

Love and light

You gift so often

To the child of autumn

The salvation

Of thy healing

BIRCHES and PINE CONES

 

20171015_143919-1

Upon a table

Perching within

An array of spicy hues

Pine cones

And a tiny pumpkin

Sits Birches

Thy very own

Elusive twilighter

As a remembrance

Of the one who

Comes every Fall

Upon a tree

Outside the home

That rests upon a hill

VISION QUEST

 

In meditative sacredness

She sits in awe

Wild sage,

Cedar and sweet grass softly burn

Surrounding her

Within its fragrance

Enveloping her in a shroud of protection

The rattle sounds

Signaling

The entrance of spirit guides

The four directions merge as one

Honoring the Great Creator and Mother Earth

As the drums beat in rhythmic time

She enters the verdant forest

A majestic stag

Stands before her

Together they run through the forest

Unencumbered and free

Into the open wilderness

The Stag’s energy, strength and majestic grace

Fills her being with every beat upon the earth

Perched high upon a treetop

Gazing

Upon Mother Earth

A glorious eagle

Its head as white as newly fallen snow

Its dark brown feathers shimmer

Within the rays of light

Stilling her in reverie

So beautiful!

So captivating!

She asks within her heart

To become one with the eagle

And to soar

In the midst of love and light

The eagle

Granted

Her request

And she was

Forever changed

ORANGE MOON OF AUTUMN

Gazing out

Upon the

Descending night

An orange moon

Glowing between

The trees

As it rises

Stillness

Within the lore

Of the Celtic night

Soon the earth

Will become a pallet

Of rustic hues

Oranges, reds and yellows

Cold nights will become

Warmed by fire’s glow

Enchanting the charm

Of autumn’s cloak

Connections awaken

Within her being

As the path rises

Within the moon

The visionary

Of new beginnings

Sits silently

Upon the branch

Of a white birch

Watching and

Awaiting her birth

SPIRIT SONG

20170902_135550

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Under the blue canvas

Wispy clouds

Images of feathers

Eagles and hawks

Call

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Listening to the echoes

Of wisdom

Leading her path

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Taking flight within

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Listening now

For answers she has sought

Within her

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Arms open wide

Twirling in the rays

Beneath the blue canvas

The feather

In her long hair

Tickles her face with joy

Eagle wind

Twirling with her

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Listening within

Revealing ancient ways

Coming to life within her

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Echoes whispering

Within the wind of time

She listens

Spirit Song

Dances in the wind

Letting her spirit sing

The song she always heard

But never listened

Follow the callings

Within the heart

And those seeking

Goodness, truth and love

Will find her

Spirit Song

Carrying her peace pipe

Stones of sacredness

And her drum

The heartbeat of the soul

Spirit Song

Dancing in the wind

Coming into being

SUNRISE, SUNSET

Sunrise

Giving way

To a new day

As rays of warmth touch

The four directions

Gently nudging

That is time to rise

And begin anew

For what was is now past

Sunset

Illuminating

The descent of night

With its colorful rays

Casting sand paintings

Across the canvas

Between the clouds

A time to restore

Because what was

Is now descending into

The passages of night

And into the past

Soon to give way

To a new dawn

Upon the rising sun

Sunrise, sunset

The rhythm of

Creation

OH COME YE FALL

Fall Leaves Pexels

Oh come ye fall

The spirit of thy birth

Oh come ye fall

Your refreshing restorative aromas await thee

Oh come ye fall

Paint your canvas

With rich warm spicey hues

So that

The mountains and the trees

May capture the rays of light

Reflecting their beauty

Upon the mirrors of blue

Twice the enchantment

Oh come ye fall

The crisp apples

Abundant

And warm apple pie await to delight

Oh come ye fall

When the days are warm

And nights cold and crisp

To nestle within warm blankets

With and by loved ones

Oh come ye fall

By the crackling fires

As the harvest moon

Shines forth upon us

Oh come ye fall

As nature resounds

In the spectacle

Of warm spicy awe

Hawks, eagles, coyotes, wolves and deer

And the elusive twilighter

With its haunting hoot

Announcing the awakening

Of fall’s embrace

Oh come ye fall

The spirit of thy birth

Unfolding memories

When the child

Came alive

Escaping with excitement

Day and night

Within her precious sanctuary

Communing with you

In the wilderness of the northern mountains

Oh come ye fall

The spirit of thy birth

Come and let us

Play within

The awe

The transformation of you

Oh come ye fall

For you are upon

The spirit of thy birth!
