bedazzled by sound

spirit filled voices
harmonizing sisterhoods

of sacred vessels

bedazzled by sound
voices soar in ecstasy
give it up for god

what would it be like
to find everything in song?

no thing left behind

5 things I love- (I don't normally play these games)

I've been tagged again
and only do it for y
consider it done

creating haiku
these seventeen syllables
dancing through my soul

the feel of fresh wind
caressing my whole body
pedaling like the wind

floating in the lake
remembering my own birth
at one with water

sharing the kitchen
I'll chop, you add some spices
we'll cook a great meal

opening focus
to find the last puzzle piece
solving mysteries

all bets are off

an invitation
for those who don't feel this love:
start spinning right now

come on in
just open your mouth
and say hoo!

dervish foot
toe finds the center
turn from there

borders dissolving
no more winners or losers
all bets are off then!

letting go

trees shimmy

orange showers down

letting go


don't try to hold still

falling leaves

speaking in tongues

struck down by
wordless sounds

body shakes
in holy language

gift of spirit, or
devil's tongue?

who chases who?

two kittens perform
a ferocious circus act
in the living room

chased by change

tumbling in laughter
it's all good*

break out

everywhere I turn
the Universe is teaching
therefore I must learn!

explosions of light
rearrange the molecules
is it really changed?

one minute soaring
then stumbling towards despair
take off those high heels

some heart

I'm celebrating
my daughter's marriage today
now there was some heart!

a goddess and god
stood before us spilling joy
the cup overflowed

bridging the gap

even in union

there will always be a space

which cannot be crossed

remember we are
mostly made of energy

balls of light in flight

(with thanks to Rilke)
