"SOLSTICE DREAMING AT HANAMANU"
On this Solstice I may seek to gaze,
Even if by myself...
Where mountain's shadow clings to sky,
And lapping waters, kissing stones,
Echo my own sighs.
Sky smiles, warmly, sighing heavily
Into myriad stars.....
Reflecting ancient memories,
That for so long, I've tried to keep in jars.
And Guardians, knowing all my secrets,
Pains and joys untold...Gather all the "mes"
Like falling leaves beside the twirling worlds.
The Blue Water Planet is singing,
Her whales, Her birds, insects and trees....
Calling us to join Her, in her tender rhapsody,
Her Song of Life.
Her melody is for a simple heart,
A heart filled with true caring....
Whose every thought becomes a breath,
And every breath a whisper clear,
in innocent belief that....
Life is fair and cares... for all.
Neither fair nor unfair...
Life calls us to create a life of caring.
Allows us a chance to learn the art of sharing.
Expects not only giving...but forgiving
If we are to earn our place in Heaven.
They show me glorious turquoise sunsets
Woven from the whispering of the Holy Names....
Revive in me forgotten understanding,
Of who I Am, of of a Truth,
That in changing, does not change.
Now returning from the burning cold,
Holding my vision clear.....
Knowing in the Eternal Now,
We must decide with every breath...
If the Nature we're creating...
Gives rise to life, or falls...
Into self ruin and death.
A life to vain for simple caring,
Has it's destiny ordained....
For Time is like a circle sweeping,
Bringing every life the due it's lost
....or gained, following close
The breadth of every heart...
it looses not a step.
The heavy sighing of the branches,
Laden with their summer leaves....
Brings me back so ever gently
On the sweetly blossomed breeze
I feel the Peace... within the song of trees.
