When she was a child…

“Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
it calls me on and on across the universe.”
― John Lennon

nairobi

she hails from a city
near the mountains of the moon,
where the savannah hisses
on sultry
afternoons…
and stars fall in lucent immersions,
touching Earth without any urging…

On torrid evenings, when gasping for breath,
she foreknew paradise in
mystical depth…
in the fragrant meadows, of grasshopper haunts,
she believed the impressions
beyond her thoughts…

and she traversed dark oceans,
with invisible lords,
fantastical journeys of a timeless form,

she made secret vows
with the unsaid,
alliances bound by a silver thread
uniting her with her heavenly core,
that
never again
should be ignored…

Baptized in forgiveness
she recast the script…
named by a Starfleet from a lunar eclipse,
where every tribe
flows through
her veins,
freed from the chants of hellish refrain…

when she was a child, she wanted to be….
a dreamer
a poet
of fantasy…

Magic…

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

the in-betweens

She found magic in the in-betweens,
things some have never seen…
She paused
in the stillness of rosé hues,
a quiet blush
delighted her muse…
and weariness began to shift,
a deep awareness
of secret gifts…
And bees whispered
in rhythmic tones,
it was the holiness she’d always known…

Solicitude…

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
― Desmond Tutu

swans

I watched these swans gracefully glide across the pond, showing such concern and love for each other…
it was beautiful to see…

in acres of sadness, where hope is sparse,
kindness brings healing to broken hearts…

and nature explodes with gentleness
in outpourings of elegance,
reflections
of kindness everywhere,
taking Earthlings unawares,
in movements of authentic concern,
solicitude’s splendor,
being observed…

let’s cultivate it, wherever we go,
on our sleeves,
let it show!
growing it in our gardens with love,
letting it shower us
from above…

breathing it in
exhaling it out
permitting it to scatter all about…
