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.

THANK YOU
What you have done
May have been simple
But for me alone without you
It could not have been done.
My life has been made good
And the world a better place to be
And I thank you for being
When I needed you.

And though I cannot give to you
A gift as precious as you gave to me,
When a time comes
For me to pass the gift along
And help another.
It is because I learned from you
That the well of kindness flows
To fill the cup for all to drink.

Know that I remember you in all my days
And bless the stars that crossed our ways.

BEAUTY
Beauty is the immaculate heart of humankind’s long journey
And fond hopes.
Nut do not ask to see Beauty with the eye
Or hear beauty with the ear.
For it is the inner senses of the soul
That knows beauty when she blesses us with her grace and love.
Beauty is not a face but the smile ~
Not the bright eye but the spark of joy,
Not the sweet taste but the gift of sweetness,
Not the melodious son, But the spirit of the singer.
Be not blind or death or untouched
By the blessing of beauty but give thanks always.

FILAMENTAL ELEMENTALS 2
Jellyfish.
Transparent and apparent the fish of jelly drifts
Unconscious and unaware
Pulsing as a heart.
The oceans arteries fulfil their needs.
Transience and luminence we jellyfish seek the light
But cannot swim against the flow.
Ocean organisms have their special
Individual place
Beyond the grasp of human land-minds.
We cannot speak to them.

FOLLOW MY LEADER
Follow my leader
Or lead my follower.
Under sea and understood.
When the plate is empty who shall fill it?
Will your tears replace the sea?  (Mandala)
