The Night


The night begets the dawning
The dawning begets the rising sun
A moment of divinity when dark and light are ONE.

Passions Bold ~ Frames of Mind ~ Opus 6


Tones, textures, treasure of time
Passions bold, lyrical and gracefully divine
Sounding brush strokes of the perceived
Color, form, in expressions conceived
Drama, musical portraits in soulful splendor
To the artistry of ALL in sweet surrender
Breath, heart and light, this beckoning to heed
The music, colors pulsing, 'tis the Creator's creed
Hear I the canvas in tones of passion and reflection
Touching all sensibilities in sounding perfection.

The News is reported ... a loss ... and a plea is heard...


Grant not power to these demons of dark
Hush hush their haunts erase their mark
Be free of judgments and reprisals cruel
Truth and Spirit of Self in light anew to rule
Addict me not to a false quieting of the pain I feel
Make the liberation from a shadowed self a beauty real
Mask not these agonies of the abiding soul
No longer allow deception to demand a toll
Pay not the price of life relegated to sorrow
Live the promise held within each tomorrow
Depression be not a donned cloak of despair
Hold the Faith yet borne of God's loving care
The gift of life and power of will in your story be  told
Hail each breath,  the cleansing, 'tis the alchemist's gold.

And so let us all be open to hear the "words and ideas" 
that we are yet to reveal to ourselves for the deepest of liberation. 


His life in GLORY shared
In his way of splendor was his care
Selfless giving and loving PRAISE
This be the gift of his knowing ways

A smile remains in heart
From his memory I shall not depart.

PEACE dear Robin.

Hold Sweet the Ravages of Time



Betray not this body of mine
Hold sweet the ravages of time
As too, a diamond deep within the earth's embrace
The brilliance of light within this heart to place
Heed well the call of soul's desire
Jewels of passion's beckoning fire
Facets cut in reflections be they of time
Chambers of light held within this heart mine
In adornment be held the grace of light ever dear
And banished be the pain and the shadows of fear
The pulsing echoes of this heart be they heard
Revelations of light within THE WORD
Spirit's expression in this body beyond conceal
The ALL of light in TRUTH and PRAISE reveal
Betray not this body of mine
Hold sweet the ravages of time.

Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence


The Ascension Perceived

Awakened to the silence that surrounds me
To the ambient echoes of the night
The song birds and crickets in choral sounding sweet
I each moon past and this day newly conceived
This the cycle of aeons
This the ascension perceived.

A Night Serenade



Through the open window
In the distance be the train whistle
The rumble of wheels upon track
The thundering airplane directly above
The crickets sing
The silence rests
Gentle winds
Sweet be this summer night
A night serenade
Through the open window.

The Light in Rays of Grace


The Light in Rays of Grace

Spectrum of color
Seven rays of light
Within our BEING
The prism conceived
Cast in consciousness
The Red Ray of Survival
The Orange Ray of Creation
The Yellow Ray of Power
The Green Ray of Love
The Blue Ray of Expression
The Indigo Ray of Vision
The Violet Ray of Spirit
Within the White Light of ALL PRESENCE
I AM.
