A Hummingbird Visits

I saw it
I smelled it
I knew what it was…
Hovering hovering,
My wings going BUZZ!

The flower
The color
A nectar so sweet…
But what of this other?
Taking a treat?

I heard it
I felt it
I didn’t know why…
The music had drawn me
From searching the sky.

I found it
I passed it
Without any harm…
The red head kept making
The music of song.

I saw it
I smelled it
I knew what it was…
Hovering hovering,
My wings going BUZZ!


An experience I’ve never forgotten, written from the hummingbird’s perspective. For
dVerse Poetics.

Airborne Quandary

PSST…
Come closer…
Closer…
Don’t tell anyone…
I am full of hot air.
The less I speak,
the more I have.
What a quandary!
I won’t waste it
spreading gossip like the plague.
So I channel it
into balloons,
contaminating everyone
with colorful wishes!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
–Philippians 4:8 (KJV)

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. [emphasis added]
–Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV)

There Shall Your Heart Be – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

A.
Whatsoever things are true,
Whatsoever things are honest,
Whatsoever things are just and pure,
Whatsoever lovely things,
If there’s any praise or virtue,
Whatsoever things of good report,
Think, think on these things.

Repeat A.

B.
[And] hide them in your heart
As treasure buried deep,
For where your treasure is,
There shall your heart also be.

Repeat A and B.

Repeat B.

There shall your heart also be. (2x).

A Little Love

This song was written for Dominic Sweetman, who gave me a challenge. He wanted a story, and I said I could write one, but not instead of a song. We decided on a story-song containing a broomstick, a happy smile, and a wheelbarrow. We agreed it turned out well, so I’m sharing it here. 🙂

1. I used to ride my broomstick
Through the country and the town,
Laughing at the couples
And wearing a big frown.
A wheelbarrow of past regrets,
It followed me around.
The streets were paved with sorrow
For the love I never found.

2. Till one fine day a man appeared
With a brilliant, shining smile.
He asked, “Why do you look so sad?
Let’s sit and talk awhile.”
My wheelbarrow he filled with dreams
And lightened every mile.
On roads of possibility
We travel side by side.
Refrain:

3. He swept me off my broomstick,
And I don’t miss it at all.
My feet are in the clouds;
It doesn’t matter if I fall.
I wear a happy smile
As I laugh and have a ball.
My wheelbarrow is filled with love
I share with one and all.
Refrain: (Twice)

O isn’t it amazing
What a little love,
A little love,
A little love can do!

Refrain:
My heart is open, I see hope and
Sparkles of the truth.
O isn’t it amazing
What a little love,
A little love,
A little love can do!

1. God put the sun in the sky, high,
Dividing the day from the night light.
Darkness so deep doesn’t fly by,
But the sun will rise again.
Refrain:

2. When you don’t feel the love above,
All that you know is the push and shove.
Dark is the soul till the dawn comes,
When the sun will rise again.
Refrain:

3. Christ is the Son in the sky, high,
And shining in you as a light so bright.
Ask him to see with a sight, right,
That the sun will rise again.
Refrain:

‘Cause You will see the sun again,
No matter what and where you’ve ever been.
You know it can’t be hidden long,
So sing your solar power song!

Refrain:
You will see the sun again,
No matter what and where you’ve been.
You know it can’t be hidden long,
So sing your solar power song!

Equonox Meditation

This is an invitation to meditate together for the Equinox. The message below comes directly from Jill Crosby, owner and founder of Conscious Dating Network and Spiritual Singles. I invite you to join in this beautiful meditation and vision of planet-wide peace and love. Please feel free to share this post and/or Jill’s message, with credit given to Jill, on your social media pages.

Happy Equinox!

March 20th is the equinox. Equinoxes are very powerful energetically, as you probably know. I’ve become aware that many people have been feeling a bit depressed and down lately, even those who are normally not. Quantum physics has now proven what many of us have known for a long time….we are all interconnected.

We have thousands of members on Spiritual Singles, which is part of the Conscious Dating Network of sites, and as a group, our energy can affect the collective consciousness of the world (this has also been proven). I have an idea! This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while:

On SUNDAY, MARCH 19th at NOON, your time, I invite you to send loving, joyous energy to the Earth and all of her inhabitants. As a group, let’s focus on transmuting hate, fear and greed into LOVE, GRATITUDE and JOY. Let’s create a wave of energy, beginning in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji that goes around world, leading us into the Equinox on March 20th. Feel free to gather with some conscious friends and meditate together, or to do it by your self. Either way, tap into our group energy to amplify your energy.

Just breathe, go within and focus on transmuting (changing) the fear, hate and greed into LOVE, GRATITUDE AND JOY for the entire world—all people, animals, insects, plants, trees, rocks, dirt, oceans, rivers… everything and everyone.

Here is the vision I just received to help us do this. I invite you to do this or something similar on March 19 at noon:

Imagine 3 small pebbles of sand on a huge, isolated, desolate beach. These pebbles represent humanities’ fear, hate and greed. Know that these pebbles are tiny and insignificant. Now imagine a huge, beautiful wave of sparkly LOVE-infused water crashing on the beach and completely breaking apart these pebbles instantly transforming them into grains of sand. As they break apart imagine them being infused with love, gratitude and joy thus being changed forever! Open your heart, increase your joy and let your powerful emotions of gratitude and love radiate out in all directions to the entire world—through the oceans, through the air, the earth…infusing everything with love and gratitude as this wave of energy flows around the world making everything and everyone sparkle and vibrate with joy! Use all of your senses and IMAGINE, FEEL, SEE, HEAR what it’s now like to have complete PEACE, LOVE, UNDERSTANDING, COMPASSION AND ACCEPTANCE OF ALL. Breathe it in and KNOW it’s DONE. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And so it is!

Love Springs

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Enjoy these
Limericks
inspired by two of Ireland’s State symbols, the shamrock and the Celtic harp, plus love and Spring for good measure!.

A shamrock so lovely and fair
I tuck in the locks of my hair.
It shines in the sun,
And two hearts are one
As loving and living we share.

The harp plays a music divine,
Entwining our hearts, yours and mine.
A melody rings;
Together we sing
In love so much sweeter than wine.

Is envy the color of green?
Perhaps, but there’s more to be seen.
A blessing so pure
When love is reborn
Anew by the dew of the Spring!
