Poem: Fireworks

 

Behind
the fence
a neighbor´s
grandchild
is gasping
an enchanted
woooooooow
over and over
again
to each set
of fireworks
exploding
in the sky.

I chuckle
inside,
thanking
the child
for her
exquisite
reminder
of the magic
of awe
and
wonder.

The star child
in all of
us.

Music: I Can See Clearly Now, Jimmy Cliff

 

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day

Oh, yes I can make it now the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day

Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead, there’s nothing but blue skies

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
Bright (bright), bright (bright)
Bright sunshiny day
It’s going to be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day

Poem: Sarcophagus of Light

One day
in an ancient world,
but in this world,
we traveled to this time
inside a sarcophagus
of light,
you and me,
in loving
embrace of
togetherness

are we there
watching this day,
this moment,
or are we here,
or are we
here and
there

to be together
again we vertically
adjusted the
time line of now,
there
and here,
reminding us
that love at first sight
was not love at
first sight,
and the sarcophagus
was not for the dead,
but for the living
to travel between
worlds and the gate;
or was it
in the future past
this loving embrace
became up-to-date.

Newness of Energy During and After the Solstice

coloured_fresh_fruits-wallpaper-1366x768

Look to this day,
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
 
– Sanskrit Proverb

 

“I feel new energy and aliveness
touching every part of my body
with every breath I take.

I trust that the world is safe
and that it is always working
FOR me and WITH me.

I release all my limits
and embrace the new.”

– Sanaya Roman at Orin & DaBen, Embracing the New /weekly meditations

Poem: A Walk

countryside_road_gate-wallpaper-1366x768A Walk

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance-

and charges us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

– Rainer Maria Rilke

translated by Robert Bly
