Oceans of Dreams


oceans of dreams
stir within the womb of a heart
given time on earth
we breathe life into them
rising to the surface
like tiny bubbles
manifesting with each shift in time
infinite potential

  12. Spring ice doesn't last long -- you caught a rare moment. Maybe that's what the hard winters are for: to focus our energies, so that when the softening of spring begins, we are ready to grow.

  22. I like your poem Tammie.

    New worlds coming to the surface that are held true from the heart. Bubbles rising from the depth of our Being. New spells being cast upon the world. New Circles to Join and build upon. All is rising to see the Earth with New Light.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Such a find, Tammie. As at least one of the other commenters has said - most of us would not even notice it. But because you did, and have brought it to our attention we can admire the beauty of nature in yet another guise.

  81. Good heavens, those BUBBLES! A perfect, tiny community. Your words are beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  82. This looks so unreal. When I was little, we used to sit by the side of a stagnant drain, and with a forked weed, we dipped the weed in the water, and it looks as though we made a soapy membrane. Funny, I never mentioned this to any one. May be your spirit whisper a connection to my brain.

    I just did a gingko tea post for you.
    The tea has no taste. I researched, there are many gingko trees in America,

    ReplyDelete
