Paths Lined with Flowers

It's raining it's pouring
Summer is dressed in glory
thick coat of green
jewels made of rain
ornate with budding trees
flowers and mushrooms
tell her story

For over a week we have experienced a mix of sun and rain daily. The lush bounty of Summer green and flowers continues to paint our world. Wishing you all a wonderful Summer~

Deep Thirst

within lies an eternal spring
a substance akin to
breath and light
rest gentle upon its edges
sense the spaciousness of its
let the waters of the spring
quench your deep thirst

Fragrance and Spirit

fragrance is as close to spirit
as the physical world gets
fragrance and breath
divine friends
are mated

as we pause to inhale a delicious scent
a rhythm within slows
opens to receive
in receiving we blend

Superior Scribbler Award

Once upon a time (LAST February) from the far off land of Oslo came a gift that touched my heart sweetly and deeply. The Superior Scribbler Award was gifted by Son from Son of Incogneato's blog. As I read his words as to why he gave it to me, gentle tears rolled down my cheeks. I began to sense that my heart felt dream of uplifting the human spirit through the beauty of nature and my writings was actually manifesting.

I'd like to introduce: mister Son. When I stumbled upon his blog I was enchanted as I wandered through post after post. His art overflows with the mystery and magic of life, and summons imagination to the surface. I encourage you to gift yourself with a visit to his blog: Son of Incogneato! (I wish I had the ability to be as humorous about this as Son was in his award post!
He is also a wonderful writer, you will have to search deep to find his writings.

Now this award has some tasks I must attempt to honor:
* Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy friends.
* Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she received the award.
* Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
* Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit [the above Scholastic Scribe] post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
* Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

It is with great appreciation that I pass this award on to some bloggy friends whose writing I enjoy very much and absolutely as writers they each deserve this award! :

Anno of: anno's place
Anno has the ability to write about anything: what she is reading, growing, meme's, what she is cooking and eating, poetry, and always I find myself delighted and absorbed in her words.

Paschal of: Murat 11
Paschal has a grand style, sui generis. I have found that my mind must relax, loosen, let go to take in the brilliance of his words (this is a good thing). And his comment section is like a string of pearls as he responds to his readers and friends. And... he has great taste in music.

Miss A of :The Essence of A Thing
Miss A has a delicious way with words. Her heart and mind can weave a tale that takes you on wild and wonderful adventures.

Erin of: Erin Sings
Ms. Erin breaths life into words with a sensuous lilt that gets my attention. Not only is she a wonderful writer, if you wander around her blog a bit you can find some of her awesome music.

The newest writer I have come to find: ThomG of Surface Tension
This man is a fantastic story teller. He has one this week called 'Snare' that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I could go on and on, for I enjoy the brilliant writing of so many people in blogland. I thank you all for sharing the beauty and depth of your words with me and the world.

know that when you ask
then listen
you will hear
the whispers
the call of the soul
they rise from ones heart
a place with the know
some feel it in their
solar plexus, belly or heart
she can come with the wind
a flower or music of a harp
she speaks ancient truths
still in sync with now
know that when you ask
then listen
you will hear

Summer at Her Best

Softly deeply slowly
inhaling air
and presence
relaxing opening beckoning
loves spirit
to awaken and permeate
all eternity

This past week I took a journey. Drove to the National Folk Festival in Butte Montana, absolutely wonderful music! Then wandered up the Eastern side of the Rocky mountains. Weather varied from hot to warm as well as stormy with great drama in the form of clouds, rain and wind. The earth is vibrant green, flowers are bountiful and seemingly unending waterfalls abound. Summer at her best.

Surprise and Magic

I am setting you free
for you and me

that bound my heart
honor essential truths
and instantly
we are both free

Montana Landscape

Consider kinship
with a day
with a breeze
with the perfume of a forest
on a warm summer day

consider kinship
with the weight of a steel gray cloud
or the seemingly weightlessness of puffy white ones
or even
with the blanket of darkness on a moonless
starry night

consider kinship

Obvious Mate ~

In the land of seasons
nature becomes an obvious mate
there is no wandering into her wilds
without considering her mood
honoring her stance
our union
if only for ones well being

in honoring
endless treasures
in her presence
in her kinship

Sending Annie healing vibes
and love ~

Let It Flow

In the depth of the night
under a blanket of dark sky
egos rest
let go
spirit opens her wings
dances wildly
touches our daytime edges
then penetrates
beyond human boundaries
into the flow of the infinite

Gems of Light

evidence of rain
in the form of tiny spheres
lay lightly
yet tightly
not rolling from leaves
tiny spheres of rain
and light
precious gems
