nature talks to us
in so many wonderful ways
the winds speaks through the trees
the birds with their joyful songs
to sing at the break of day

the flowers reflect heavens colors
to express the beauty of creations art
the oceans breath is heard in the waves
the whales song touches our hearts
there is a song the earth sings
part of the cosmic frequencies

we are bathed in the sounds of life
and can be in tune the Earths harmony
if we go into the silence
we can listen deep and hear

the earth is speaking
and nature listens
and we can also hear
the sounds so very clear

the Earth is calling out to us
to work together and overcome
all the damage that’s been done
I pray we can be the ones
to save our precious home

when I walk in Nature
I ask to be able to see
the true beauty and the gifts
Mother Nature offers me

each step upon the Earth
offers a chance to be in tune
with the sacred energy
That is present in the flowers
that so freely bloom

Mother Earth can heal us
and she feeds us everday
it’s time to give back our love
and restore her before it’s too late

so take the time to appreciate
all the blessings that are here
the soul that we walk upon
the oceans so majestic
and the mana in the air

send your love and gratitude
out to Mother Earth
and when you walk in nature
allow yourself to be in tune
to the beauty and the light
that she provides for me and you

give her your love
send her your light
pray for this Sacred Earth
each and every day

New Beginnings

a talk and meditation on new beginnings.

Mother Earth is Calling,

A talk and meditation on the need to heed Mother Earth’s call.

it doesn’t stop
this gift of life
it keeps changing
as our awareness expands
in the magic of light it transforms
as it’s born and lives
while something still survives
beyond all space and time

we are carried on the wind of wings
and lifted oh so high
sometimes here
sometimes gone
but always in spirit
still alive

it doesn’t stop
it cannot be denied
this cosmic energy
alive in all of all life

breathe in the magic
breathe in the light
be in the heart of Gods love
and experience this eternal moment
please enjoy the ride

you cannot stop
this energy
so open up your mind
to see how it transforms
and changes you
to spiral through infinity
throughout all space and time

thank you
thank you always
with heartfelt gratitude
for the greetings conveyed
from all my friends and family
on this my Birthday today

but somehow those words
don’t seem to express
the essence of what I wish to say
I just love the way
people reach out
and wish you well
when it’s your special day

often we have expectations
of what makes a Happy Birthday
and it’s so nice there are those
who bring a smile to your face
and share love in so many ways

and this year
I was so very touched
how people took the time
to say Happy Birthday
in so many ways
and share best wishes
from their soul to mine

so thank you so very much
for all the sweet things conveyed
it really does make a difference
and means a lot
my heartfelt gratitude to you today
