There are some souls that come into your life
and you know they needed you as much as you needed them.
They fit into your life perfectly, and leave their footprints on your heart forever.
They make you smile, laugh and cry, and you love them with everything you've got,
I had to say goodbye to you today dear one,
you were so sick, and…Continue
May we see beauty in this darkness
and find joy amidst the chaos
May we wait upon the promise of home
with all good faith
Those of you who cannot see The living poetry of a tree,
are bound on every side of heart,
to dwell in ignorance, strife and dark.

You are Joseph
I have not spoken your name in a long time.
You left here in the Ripe Corn Moon
When Selu was at her fullest,
When the berries were ready to be picked
and the land was rich with life.
Under a new moon,
you began your journey to a far place,
to a new life.
You were a good…Continue

A moment in time
when the gods were kind
and granted small wishes to mortals below.
When fate was borne on the wings of love,
and the sun and moon aligned..…Continue

Ballarat Australia Sunrise
It came with magnificent mountains that stand sentry over the valleys and plains.
With sunrises that light the mornings with fire, and the colours of the rainbow
Where the sun greets the mountain tops each morning with a warm kiss.
Emerald landmasses and tundra, white with new fallen…Continue

I went for a walk, I had things on my mind, I always do.
The short trip to the river turned into something else.
I walked far and buried myself deep within the trees and forest growth.
I sat beneath a tall and sturdy pine and I waited.
I knew it would come,…Continue
I am kindred spirit to the wild and free places
that heartbeat matches mine
There my pulse races and my love comes alive and
the fire within is replenished and burns bright and fierce.
That love let's me walk…Continue

Thirty six Grandfather stones placed carefully in the sacred circle, each with a purpose and gift to offer.In delicate tendrils, the sage smoke rises from the shell, my small offering to the universe this night
In the center, near the Creator Stone I stand, like a waiting child, arms outreaching, in supplication, waiting for direction and wisdom from the ancient ones.
Here am I.... in this eternal compass, and cosmic map that carries within it the wisdom of the…Continue

We all just want to be loved and accepted for who we are, really..
A simple wish, and not always granted so easily.
When you have fallen and feel broken,
a certain freedom comes.
You have nothing to lose, or everything to lose.
And truth is the only thing left.
You have been tested to the core,

You've heard of the Phoenix Rising?
And of her able Captain...
fearless Lord, uncompromising.
Well, sit yerself down, yer scurvy swabs,
and gather round the fire.
Drink up me hearties, and warm yer…Continue

They say the ancestors live in the great Star Nation high above us.
They watch over us and speak in the wind.
Sometimes they come in a cloud of beauty...
to show us they think of us,
and to remind us to look up and see Creator's love painted in the sky.
Some say that after the great and beautiful Thunderbird was punished for being so vain,
he was banished to live beyond the clouds so that his…Continue

A soft snow fell and…Continue

It's easy to lose yourself in such a big universe.
Easy to forget that each atom and molecule
of you was made with purpose, creativity and pure love.
We are a separate and divine composition, yet part of a cosmic symphony.
Without us, the song is incomplete.
Born to create, we are given brush, palette, canvas,…Continue

Sometimes, caught up in my human vanity,
I forget to look down and see the smallest of creations
and learn my lessons there
And sometimes I forget to look upward
and witness the love of Creator painted across the heavens
I forget that my heart needs the nourishment of the beauty surrounding me,
that, my soul needs to…Continue

The North Wind has blanketed Earth Mother once more with fresh fallen snow.
and the promise of rebirth just beneath it.
I sit inside the circle I have drawn with a branch from the birch tree. Sacred, loving guardian
who stands tall against the wind and lends its' strength so generously.
I am safe within this place
I feel no cold, I do not feel the winds that whirl around me
I am warm in the blanket of the…Continue
