Leave No Trace

This is a world of material, And in it I walk alone. A wanderer here for a time, All too brief and yet unknown.   In your hand I once held to trust, In hope of faith and strength. In love that once burned, With life, significance.   But how the leaf fades, And the…

Becoming Authentic…….a journey to the heart.

Look up the word authentic and you will find its meaning described as being of undisputed origin; not a copy, genuine. But what does it really mean to consider oneself authentic? Are we naturally so? Or does the fabric of our nature get lost in the overwhelming tides of emotion, responsibility and social conditioning? To…

What’s in a Label?

Who are we really? Are we unique individuals each with a story to tell? Or are we part of something more, something that stretches way beyond our ability to comprehend? Do we live in a world where familiarity and the expected are satisfactory to living or are we part of a chaotic, unpredictable yet stunningly beautiful…

Falling leaves

Another day has come to pass and at its end I sigh. Like falling leaves upon a weary tree, each moment of my life may be recounted. As I sit here in this late eve, I ponder where my footsteps fell this day. What have I achieved? What have I shown gratitude for? How have…

Soulful approach to living

We all face periods of change, upheaval, emotional trauma and illness in our lives with the passing of time. How we approach these experiences will greatly affect their influence upon us. The more resistance we carry the more challenging the experience becomes. When we do not allow events or circumstances to simply be, instead choosing…

Spring

Sun rises and casts away a bleak, cold day. Where wandered far and wide the chill winds that enslaved the land, the young rays of early spring begin to tease new life into being. Trees sway to a new rhythm, their leaves still a thought not yet budding into the creative unfolding of physicality. A…

Emptiness Breathes

Emptiness within me breathes a sigh of relief. Room to stretch and move I hear you say. No chains about me, constricting and confined. Into the space where wakes the embrace of life fabricated in the darkness here tread. I hear a call, a cry goes up and yet there stirs no whisper to be heard. No sorrow…

Gilded Rooks

In the darkness there stands before me a host of gilded Rooks. Amongst the branches of a golden bough. Their chatter and clamour fill my senses, overwhelming me as I dare to step beyond the void and enter into the great beyond. Together, they come to roost. Together they speak of things unknown, that I…

A Call to Love (Not to Arms)

I see everywhere about me the pillars of progress, industry, fashion and necessity, all designed to ease our living. I do not stand in the way of progress but I do question the quality of the life we have created for ourselves here. Look underneath and below the surface, peer into the cracks and crevices, peel away the…

Arianrhod

Arianrhod weave for me a dream, upon your silver wheel where threads intertwine with the hearts of all folk. Where lives are born from the ether of beyond. Where souls in slumber await return to walk the green ways of the land once more. In your darkest hours before the rising of the dawn, when…

Take Flight

Once, very far from here, very far from anywhere in particular, a long gravel track wove its way deep into the heart of the countryside right to the edge of the wild. And where it ended, there stood a little house called Sunrise Cottage, framed by the biggest blue skies you ever did see all…

Urban Paradise

Some may say I am filled with life, but here I cannot breath. Some may say how bright I am, how very cosmopolitan and chic. Some may say I am vibrant, radiant and pulsing with a rhythm all my own. But here I cannot stretch forth my reach and here I cannot dance amidst the…
