“Heaven is a state of mind, not a location.”
In quiet spaces where radiance shines,
I step a little closer
and my image
enthralled in the dialect
of Nature’s tongue…
I speak the language of this sacred Earth,
in my own
“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.”
― Hafiz of Shiraz
I touched down in starlight and gathered its glow,
I stumbled into
of divine overflow… and when darkness threatened,
I merged into light,
in resplendent overtones that illuminate
When the heart falters
and the world seems bleak
step into silence
and let the soul speak
within dulcet tones
conjoined to heaven

“May all the Angels be your sheltering and joyful guardians.”― John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings
Heaven touched Earth with mystical light,
standing in the gap,
I beheld ethereal sights.
Between here and eternity,
God is glorified,
by transcendent beings
whose love is amplified!
encompassed by light,
golden orbs of worship
day and night!
Within mindfulness their comfort and their form,
and hold me through each storm.
In joy and sorrow,
they succor me when I weep
guardians of miracles,
guide me in my sleep…..
“You were born a child of light’s wonderful secret— you return to the beauty you have always been.”
Into pure and exquisite light,
he transcended on that dreadful night,
He now resides
with celestial beings,
in the Universe
of all seeing…
and frolics on the Milky Way
where mellifluous tones ricochet,
with pathways festooned with flowers
and light cascading
in dazzling showers.
He bathes in love
and boundless peace,
where sacred wonders never cease…
Welcomed home by luminous hosts,
of unconditional love
He underwent this transformation
caught up in aspects of joy,
were fear and sorrow are destroyed.
Connected to cosmic vibrations,
realms of jubilant
his soul found its immortal home,
no more to restlessly seek or roam.
He is nothing like his Earthly form,
when death ravaged
and decay swarmed….
Unveiled into breathtaking sights,
his contrasts are eternal light……..
I wrote this a year ago…
she was born inside the cosmic sea
with angelic host for company
and light beams played in her hair
abundance flowed everywhere
in luminous temples where she knelt,
An affinity of miracles dwelt
love songs whispered on the breeze
in dulcet tones of imagery
the time came to leave this shrine
joy and sorrow were entwined
to fall to earth where mortals play
her inferno was a bright array
so when you see a shooting star
just make a wish where you are
each being must fall
that heavenly fragments
may be recalled

“Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.”
I don’t want to bore you with copious tears,
I’ve tried to move on from ruination’s abyss,
play chords of a love song,
but the deep groan persists!
Perhaps I should hemorrhage out once again,
befriend my sorrow,
have words with my pain!
With intense sadness of love I’ve been lost,
the memories, the remorse,
the chasms I’ve crossed.
I’m becoming radiant,
little by little.
glows out from the middle!
I’m trudging along,
singing out loud
a soul treasured song.
Perfectly fashioned in the image of the Divine,
I sift through the chaos,
knowing I’ll survive!!
