The Counsel of TIME

I AM this moment PAST
I AM this moment NOW
For what ever was IS
Embrace I the pain, the pleasure
Appreciate I the awareness, the aspiration
Feel I the soaring, the silence sweet
Live I its trials, its TRUTH, its treasure of BEING
I AM this moment PAST
I AM this moment NOW
I AM all TIME...

The Sounding Sea Within ~ as featured in the Summer 2015 issue of Body Magazine...

The Implacable Sea

Live I the implacable sea
A flowing spirit lies within
Know I the tides of change
This the cresting wave of BEING.
thoughts that probe the depths of existence
waves that crest the longings of the heart
oceans that flow with the knowing grace of soul
perceptions from time eternal
this inner call that echoes from the core of self
ever present passion, quest, a knowing divinity
listen, heed the resounding implacable sea within
the light of mind, the sounding of heart, the PRESENCE of BEING.

In Accord... TOTEMS of SELF... Consciousness and BEING...

a natural object or animal believed to have spiritual significance and adopted as an emblem.


If indeed I am the RAM, opposition holds no fear
If a FROG, I am confident in my transformation
If a DOVE, I know the power of peace
If a ROBIN. I am itself splendor
If a TIGER, I am protection
If a HAWK, I am the soaring flight
If an EAGLE, I live freedom's quest
And as ROSE MARIE, I am passion's flower of the sea...

TOTEMS... TOTEMS...ONE and All I BE...


What longing lore of love do your petals enfold
Your sweet seductive fragrance I to behold
Bloom in rapture and radiant red array
The kiss of waters upon your petals lay.

BE this...

BE this...
The firmament and oceans wide
Waters ever in cascading cresting grace
Flowing splendor, a thunderous roar
Hues of blue, green and caps of white and gray
BE this in wondrous knowing... the FLOW, THE WAY.

Onto This Heart Known ..

Onto This Heart Known ...

What be this call of Rainbow Obsidian
A heart in bands of color, such perfection of form
From the volcanic comes emergent and expressive light
Behold behold the luminous beauty
Be this a symbol of our uprising
Beyond all the dark depths of existence
Our volcanic ascension and transformational flow
Onto this heart known...onto this heart known.

MERCURY Retrograde...

Echo not the confusions of the day
Heed well the blessings of The Way
A force that holds its claim
Mercury Retrograde be it named
We in the grasp of its hold
Our story in delight be told
For the trickster can in joy be known
A new path, a new light, be it shown.

At the Window...

The twilight hour has come
The day, the night as ONE
At the window a Dream Catcher there be
The majesty of light yet to see
A web to capture the thought of the day
A crystal to hold time eternal, the light, the way
Within all the deliverance of grace
A  D R E A M within heart to place.
