GENESIS... ever the rebirth of the moment now...


Genesis... ever the rebirth of the moment now...

A call, I to receive
What was I presently doing, what to perceive
Words of his day and an expressed pressing need
Thoughts within consciousness planted, as too, a seed
Is it dismay and expression of dread that I am to hear
Within I declare a knowing faith, beyond the told and untold fear
Sense I do an awakening to Spirit be sought
And to this, a word of understanding to heart be brought
Listen I, and in a telling, a harvest from Creation's grace
Within each challenge be a lesson in life's book of time to place
And so the sense of pain, loss and fear of the calling moment now
Eased by the Spirit reaping the harvest of Faith's loving vow
Genesis, the rising light in blessings BE
Vistas of deliverance unto THEE.

I listened and so it was heard.. This Day...



A restlessness, fate's message divine
There is a calling within this heart mine
Heed well the quest to bear truth's claim
To know SELF beyond the inane
Resolve in sounding echoes revealed
Betray not truth with deception and pain concealed
Faith in SELF to mark truth's path and way
A fearless heart , blessed BE this day.

Black ~ White ~ Spectrum of BEING...



Black ~ White ~ Spectrum of BEING

black be it the abyss
be it the unknown
be it the yet to be explored
be it the embrace of slumber
deep be its depths
mysterious be its offerings
be it shadows of beauty
be it the night complete
white be it illumination
be it revelation
be it truth known
be it the grace of stars
be it the light of moon
be it the day complete
black kindles white
white kindles black
and all IS
and all IS
and all Is ~ Inspired Spirit.

And the People Shall RISE...



      A man holds a giant pencil as he takes part in a solidarity march (Marche Republicaine) in the streets of Paris, 11 January 2015Demonstrators held up pencils to show their support for free expression

And the People Shall RISE
YES...
there is a vision to behold

of grace and PEACE as our story told
there is a listening to be heard
it is the cry of freedom's word
there is a knowing within each heart
from which a tomorrow shall have its start
beyond oppression and dismay
is the blessed path of THE WAY
beyond control and evil greed
is the grace of GOD and love's creed
beyond dark shadows and fear
is the resounding call of TRUTH and forbearance dear
to honor all LIFE and live the glory of our days
revelation in its prevailing call and PRAISE
RISE RISE be it known, be it heard
Revelation ~ Inspiration ~ Spirit ~ Eternal ... within the WORD.

Snow here in Tappan, New York


Snow here in Tappan, New York...

A gossamer veil of gentle wind, snow and light
Settled and cloaked in crystal strokes of white
So delicate be these touches upon barren branch and bough
Beauty shall we behold be the snow's silent vow
Tenderness and temper define this morning's domain
Nature's splendor holds its special claim
The faint song of wind upon chime
Heralds a welcome melody to Winter's touch of time.

To the NEW YEAR, 2015... JOY as ONE...


To the NEW YEAR, 2015... JOY as ONE...

Looking back to days now gone, now past
Looking to the future, days new, days vast
This NOW, what we perceive it to be
A choice ever held by a you, by a me
Many a decision, ours to reach, to make
From the domains of thought and vision we partake
A mind with purity of purpose, intent and direction
Is itself life's questing passion and perfection
Shaper we are of each yesterday and a tomorrow to come
We with the MAKER, our will as JOY as ONE.

In Roman mythology, Janus (or Ianus; "archway") was the
god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings and endings.
His most prominent remnant in modern culture is his namesake,
the month of January, which begins the new year.
