FLAME OF LIFE

The power within the flame of life

Enlightens the dark passways.

 

Blessings on the gifts of fire ~

Warmth and heat and burning and bright.

We cannot lose the way in darkness

While we have light and fire.

Enabling all life

Yet not penetrating to the seas uttermost depths.

So light empowers and illuminates.

It is the light within

That is our guide, wayfarer.

 

Dream upon the colours of fire.

The element of immolation and consummation.

The distant element of sun that greets

Earth as she turns in time.

Bless fire for light and flame of joy.

THE RIVER

Swim with the flow ~

Against the stream only fish go.

Sit with the rock,

Bend with the reeds

Or dive onwards to the sea.

 

Runs the river of earth’s veins

And beside the flowing water

Life flourishes ~

Tread gently wayfarer

And seek the river

To the heart’s content.

FRIENDS

Consider friends as roses –

With the perfume of kind words.

Accept the thorns.

 

 

The heart is flower to dance

In the afternoon sunshine.

Be glad for Earth’s smiling blossoms.

 

 

Dream in peace and joy upon the rose

Singing in the air

And find the thorn protects the flower.

PEACE  *

Let the wings of Peace

Shelter the world

 

Peace may fill the heart

And rule the mind

And fill the soul

 

In the noise of war

Listen for the quiet song of Peace

 

Be strong and brave

For the flight is long

And the vigil kept to Dawn.

 

The work of peace is love in action.

Peace exists in the field of plenty ~

 

In abundance all creatures may be safe and free.

Walk to peace unladen but carrying gifts.

Fly to peace with a light within

 

And a willing hand of love,

Friendship, sharing and forgiving.

The power within ~

Soft as steel ~

Hot as ice ~

Deep as sky ~

Old as day dawn ~

Cold as the flame ~

Clear and dark ~

Bright and dim ~

Know self.

COMPASSION
Compassion is the diamond crown
Of the knowing heart.
The heart can rule the world
When feeling enlightens the mind
And care guides the hands.

Bird, beast, bug & frog
And leaf and thorn ~
We are all one together
On one small ship
That sails on a dark & fathomless sea
With only stars to guide us.

HEALING ( silk verse.)
Be well!
Heartfelt wishes for you health.
In all ways call within to be strong.
Accept help, and know that joy and health
Grow from the power of the heart.

My thoughts are with you
And I pray and know
 You will again be hale and hearty
Answer the call to life.
The future is beckoning
And every day is another flower on the stem.

From heart to heart I send this to you
And wish you well.
