Echos Through Time

wolfEchos through time I have found my spirit being called to his. There is a knowing inside me that has been there throughout the countless times that I have been born. My spirit longs for his touch, his embrace and his warm breath blending with my own. I am pulled in such a way that words simply cannot describe. The longing aches deep within my being. My heart beats are in rhythm with his, they are in unison. When his heart begins to pound…so does mine, when he is at peace… I am as well. I have heard stories of this kind of connection between two souls. Every cell within resonates with those stories even though his touch I have never known in this life. My spirit has touched him many times, through many lives, I know him, I know his essence. I have looked into his eyes so often that I find myself swimming in the depths of his light. With a heavy sigh, I send my breath on a breeze to him so that when that warm wind reaches his face… he inhales me and he feels me, he knows I am here. Visions of lives that have come and gone, moments shared and memories of what it once was in the many lives before. These moments vibrate deep within me and I know that one day… one day we shall find each other face to face again.


Many Blessings,

He said….

fairy-talesHe said, “Let me be your manuscript, your canvas, your camera” and I became the author of the greatest love story ever told. Writing page after page of a life that appeared out of the wreckage from living the hard way. Suddenly this tragic tale has become something that seems like pure fantasy, but the reality is so much more. It’s a tale of fate and destiny that was always meant to be. It shall become legend and all who read the story will feel its depth. The words vibrating from the pages, resonating throughout the universe and bringing this story of love to life.

He said, “Let me be your manuscript, your canvas, your camera” and I became an artist with a magic brush, painting our lives together, with a stroke his lips were pressed to mine and with another our bodies intertwined. Blending the colors of our spirits perfectly matching each other… one could not tell where I began and he ended. The paint splattered from every corner, every edge, revealing a vibrant energy that can only come from the heart. Anyone who laid eyes on this painting would know… they would feel it too. This was the image of LOVE. It was a portrait of me and you.

He said, “Let me be your manuscript, your canvas, your camera” and I became the photographer with a magic lens. Capturing moments of love and true bliss. Moments lost in the shadows of his being. Wrapped in his embrace, sharing the same breath in the same space. Adjusting the focus on his eyes I see the life he once only dreamed becoming real. Flashes of light and there I see the colors of his soul… his aura shining bright.  Focusing deeper, I see him and his light… his true being… and I knew this was right.

Howling Through the Night

Wandering spirits baying beneath the moonlight
Searching for something to fill their souls
They raise their heads and howl through the night

Crying to the darkened heavens above
We are all searching, searching, searching…
For the same kind of endless love

Sending out the most magical of vibes
The Universe returns the light that has been sent
The feeling upon return is something beyond what words could describe

I find myself howling through the night too
Searching for love to be returned
Can you feel it as it vibrates through you

My light beaming as brightly as can be
Stretching beyond the moon, the stars and the vast space beyond
I smile and know deep within that love will surely come to caress me.

So here I stand alone in the moonlight
Waiting for love to come to me
Howling through the night.

Many Blessings,

My Muse

cades cove 5MY MUSE 

As I sit down to write, I think of where I should start
At the beginning… a voice whispers
So I go back and fondly recall that part

With a smile plastered across my mind
I remember seeing him and my spirit giving me a nudge
I wondered for a moment if he was like my kind

With a heavy sigh of release, I let Spirit be my guide
I reached out, not knowing what this would be
That night, my heart was changed and for hours I cried.

Tears of a great release
From years of pain that had built up over time
Finally my spirit finds some much needed peace

As time goes by, the connection with my muse grows
Each day beginning and ending with a smile written upon my heart
The Universe’s plan… No one really knows

Each breath is taken in and enjoyed with pleasure
Life is happening right here and now
Every moment is a gift I treasure

Hoping like mad that it will never end
I dare not think of the days when he might not be around
Not only is he my muse, but also a wonderful lifetime friend

I take another deep breath in and center my being
I am blessed and filled with gratitude
Letting go of worry and leaving it to fate…
I exhale and release those thoughts.. it is ever so freeing!

Filled with great passion and love
I look to the night sky and thank the moon and stars above

I thank the Universe for the magic it lends
Now if only we were close enough to hold hands.

I could see us skipping along like children in the rain
Splashing in the puddles
and allowing the cool drops of water to wash away every ounce of old pain

Happy thoughts running eternally through my head
Remembering all that has been said.

To my muse, my spirit has never been so new
It’s all because the Universe brought me to you.

Many Blessings,

My Wish to the Stars


My wish to the stars above
For a match made in heaven
You know, a special heavenly kind of love

Someone who gets me and understands
Someone to share life with
Who is ready to make long lasting plans

Someone who is unique just like me
Someone who is caring and thoughtful
and with a heart that truly loves me

Someone not afraid to grow
Someone to share life’s experiences with
Who doesn’t need to ask how I feel… just knows

Someone to cuddle with and laugh
Someone who likes to play and share a bath 😉

Someone who doesn’t wish to hurt or cause any pain
Someone to hold my hand and be at my side
Who loves to dance and play in the rain

Someone who’s soul is a lot like my own
Filled with wisdom and love
Who understands what happens to the seeds that are sewn

Someone true that doesn’t even think of wandering astray
Someone to lay beneath the moon and stars in the night
Who doesn’t wish to give up just because they are having a bad day

Someone that looks at me and sees forever
Who understands the fire inside me
And still takes on this endeavor

Someone that sees me on my worst days
But doesn’t get spooked.. not even a little
Who loves me still… in infinite ways

Someone special, not like all the rest
Someone always willing to give their best

Someone that is perfectly matched just for me
Who smiles from the inside out
Who loves without an inkling of doubt.

That’s my wish tonight to the stars above
For a love long lasting and true
Someone who loves like I do!

Many Blessings,

Sing Me Like a song

Sing Me Like a Song

From my melody to my chorus
Sing as if you were alone in the forest

Know every note, every key
Every word that is me

Sing me like a song
that’s dear to your heart
Sing every line, every part

It doesn’t matter if you sing in tune
or a little off key
as long as this song is me

Make sure the rhymes are soft and sweet
Make the beat, hard and strong
Let the rhythm make you want to dance all night long

Every line should move you
Every word capture your heart
and the ending be a new start!

Sing Me Like a Song

Dear Moon in the Night Sky

Dear moon in the night sky
Rain down your magic so that tonight I might fly
Take me to places of love and light
Take me to where a lover will hold me tight
Someone who sees me and really cares
Someone who will not make me shed anymore tears
Bring me a love that is ever so deep and true
Someone who’s actions match the words “I love you”
Allow me to hold on to this magic forever and always
For the rest of my life and all of my days
Dear moon in the night sky
Rain down your magic so that tonight I might fly.

So mote it be

Soaring on the Winds of Time

IMG_0713I am the Raven soaring upon the winds of time….
I bring to you my words .. with and without rhym

I sing my call into the sacred winds so they may carry my words to all that wish to hear
I sing of love, praise, honor and a life without fear

I fly to the North through the gateway of the mind…. and bring back knowledge and wisdom … I met with the buffalo and gained peace of mind. Connecting with the air… I soared the heavens and pondered the philosophies of life

I fly to the South through the gateway of emotions ….and bring back trust and innocence…. I met with the mouse and gained control of my deepest feelings. Connecting with the water… I frolicked in song and dance

I fly to the East through the gateway of spirit … and bring back illumination and enlightenment…. I met with the eagle and connected with our Great Spirit. Bonding with fire I began to create, paint and write once again….

I fly to the West through the gateway of the body … and bring back introspection and intuition… I met with the bear and found myself … my own inner knowing. Bonding with the Earth I found the heartbeat of magic.

I have flown in all directions.. gathered much
Now under the moon … under the sun .. under the stars above…
I give to you balance … I give to you my love

With honor and blessings this night and all
Hear my words .. as the raven calls…

Many Blessings,

I’m Not You… I’m Me

happy to be me
I don’t look like you may think I should, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t do things the way you think they should be done, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I may not react the way you think I should, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t paint what you think I should paint, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t say what you think I should say, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I may not eat the way you think I should eat, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I may not feel what you think I should feel, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t see what you think I should see, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t believe the way you think I should believe, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I’m perfectly good the way I am, being me the best way that I can. We are all different and that’s not bad. Instead of building bridges to keep us apart, lets build them so that we can come closer together. You bring the rope and I’ll bring the planks. Together we’ll build a connection that unites us.

Many Blessings,

Nothing More Than a Memory

holly sketchI don’t know why, but I started to think about when we pass and then began to think of my own passing and what would be left behind. This is what I came up with in that moment of reflection.

Nothing More Than a Memory

One day I’ll be gone from this Earthly place
Leaving nothing more than a memory to trace.

A glance from your eyes to mine
Something I hope lingers lovingly in your mind.

My mark, I’ve left on many a canvas
Now only memories left to dissolve softly into the blackness.

My words fading from the paper where they were once wrote
Leaving behind only a handful of mindful quotes.

My scent only a few knew, no longer lingering around
My laughter, no longer making a sound.

No projects left to craft
No more designs left to draft.

My love, I hope stays with you til the end of all time
Remember me dearly with a bit of  rhyme.

One day I’ll be gone from this Earthly place
Leaving nothing more than a memory to trace.

Many Blessings,

In the Dream

gray globeRaindrops falling from the night sky
Magical dreams begin when I shut my eyes

Drifting in and out of some magical astral plane
Waking suddenly when I think I hear someone shout my name

Wondering what these symbols in the night might mean
Trying hard to remember all the things I’ve just seen

Scrambled and encoded with a mystery still unknown
Visions pass through my mind like a wild and crazy cyclone

Is it a message from the great beyond?
Silently, I wait for Spirit to respond

Some say dreaming is a healing of sort
All I know is it’s a place where I am suddenly transport

From here to there and all over the place
Bringing always a story that by morning I’ll do my best to retrace

Raindrops falling from the night sky
Shush now there’s a new movie playing just behind these  shut eyes.

Many Blessings,

When You Hear the Black Bird Caw

It all started with a shiver and twitch of my nose
I could feel it coming .. a bit of rhyme .. a bit of prose
Magic flowing through the crisp Autumn air
I throw my hands up with a witchy flair

A giggle creeps up from within
Quickly turning into a cackle straight from the loony bin
People then wondering what on Earth I’m up  to
Me? Oh nothing .. just stirring my brew!

Spreading magic across the land
With a click of the mouse and a wave of the hand
Eye of newt, toe of dog, vampire’s blood and gargoyle fat
Thrice around the cauldron we go, oops almost forgot me cat!

Boil, boil, bubble and brew
Hold on, this rhyme is almost through
Potions and notions all now complete
May your Halloween be ever so sweet

A quick whistle to summon my broom
Now, off I go .. zoom, zoom, zoom
Magical blessings to one and all
Don’t forget to smile when you hear the black bird caw!


Many Blessings,

Sacred Smoke Rising

Sacred smoke rises as the sun sets for the night
Hear me now as I speak beneath the moon’s magical light

Calling upon the grandmothers and grandfathers of times now past
Grant us these blessings that I now do ask

I weave within this circle that has no beginning and no end
My prayers to the heavens I now do send

To all my relations, these blessing I bestow
Hear my words, close your eyes and let go

May the the wind carry away your fears
May the rain wash away all of your tears

May the sun always keep you warm
May the trees give you shelter through the storm

May the moon bless you as you sleep
May the Earth always offer you plenty to reap

May love find it’s place within your heart
May these blessings be with you until this Earth you do depart.

My weaving, now done for the night
Blessings to all beneath the moon’s magical light.

There’s a Little Something In My Soul

fb cover 2There’s a Little Something In My Soul…

There’s a Mighty Dragon in my Soul.
His fire runs through my blood, coursing through my veins,
building the flames within that push me further than I’ve ever been.

There’s a Fairy in My Soul.
She prances and flitters to and fro, sprinkling her magic all over me as I grow.
Tiny she may be but her magic is greater than I’ve ever seen.

There’s a Wicked Witch in My Soul.
She casts her spells and boils her brew, giving me a life I never knew. Her cackle contagious just like a smile, sharing with me knowledge from a distant isle.

There’s a Healer in My Soul.
Shaking bones and chanting words that resonate deep within.  Collecting energy from the air, healing with a sacred prayer. Sage and incense smoke rising to the heavens, giving me knowledge of all these sevens.

There’s a Monster in My Soul.
Big and scary, feeding upon my fears. Kind and gentle, wiping away the tears. He’s there for my protection, certainly a different kind of astral connection. Giving me the ability to face all those things that scare me, his strength is certainly always there for me.

There’s a Unicorn in My Soul.
Mighty and proud, majestically strong. He carries me from one life to another. Safe passage from here to there. His strength, greater then that of ten bear. A stallion getting me to where I need to be, a truly magnificent sight to see.

There’s a Bright and Shining Light in My Soul.
Consuming my being, ridding me of the darkness that lurks inside. No shadows left to fear, only a loving light with the kindness of a deer. Healing me from inside – out. Leaving behind all the worry, stress, fear and doubt. Shining brighter than the nearest star, releasing me from all of this life’s scars.

Dandelion Dreams

dandelionDandelion wishes and sunset dreams
Morning dew sparkling on the grass as the early light beams

A soft hush fills the air
As a breeze runs it’s fingers through my hair

The Meadowlark awakens a song within
Oh sweet melody… where have you been?

The times are changing at last
Join me as I say goodbye to the past

A great teacher it has been
I let go with a happy heart and cheerful grin

What has been done is done
No need to regret the web that has been spun

We start today with an outlook that’s brand new
Learning to love the ever growing spirit that lives inside you.

Dandelion wishes and sunset dreams
Loving life and all that it means!

Dandelion wishes and sunset dreams!

Many Blessings,

Some info about the Dandelion: 
(from about.com)
Dandelion is an herb that is beneficial from root to blossom. It is one of the most versatile and important herbs to learn about.

Dandelion is a multi-purpose herb. All parts of it are useful. From early spring, when the new leaves are steamed and eaten as a potherb, through the summer, the leaves and blossoms are harvested. In the fall, the roots are pulled after a frost. Even the white, milky sap is used as an effective wart remover. Dandelion is a diuretic that also contains potassium. It has been used as a liver tonic. Regular harvesting will keep the dandelion from going to seed and sowing itself. This will keep the spread of cultivated dandelions out of your lawn. No matter what use you want dandelion for, this easy growing plant is going to be a wonderful addition to your herbal garden.

Knocking at Your Door

purple passion

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or leave it waiting behind the door?

It’s there all around you, waiting for you to notice…
Wondering if you’ll ever overcome this sad kind of blindness.

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or leave it for others to explore?

Sometimes it’s easy to see and at other times it may not.
Once we begin to believe… it’s noticed quite a lot!

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or are you still unsure?

Magic doesn’t hurt, not one little bit.
It heals hurt, pain and sorrow and lifts the Spirit!

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.
Will you let it in or carry on without a notion just like before?

Magic is knocking …. knock, knock knocking at your door.

Many Blessings, 

Tinsel and light

christmas lights
Tinsel and light
All things merry and bright

Tis that magical time of year
To spread lots of love and good cheer

Childlike hopes and dreams fill our hearts
Standing beneath the mistletoe with my sweetheart

Cookies in the oven baking with care
Lights and stockings strung everywhere!

Watching close, that mischievous elf
Wondering how on Earth he gets off the shelf!

Family and friends gathering from far and near
Waiting for Santa and his reindeer!

Wishes being sent from me to you
For a Happy Christmas and New Year!

Winter Dreams

Magical wonders beneath a star lit sky
With a twinkle, winter dreams begin to fill our eyes

Cozy nights, snuggled by the fire
Spending quality time with those you admire

The snow begins to fall and a hush is  whispered through the air
The land is resting for the winter just like a bear

The days now shorter and the weather  quite cold
Even as she sleeps, the Earth’s beauty is surly a sight to behold

Watching through the window, winter birds coming around for a treat
You’ll find me with a hot cup of tea, snuggled up in my favorite seat

It’s a time of reflection and a time to rest
Please do come in and have a seat, be my guest

We’ll sit and chat about the days gone by and the days to come
We’ll be calmed by the fire’s magical crackle and hum

Once we’ve had our tea and said our farewell
We’ll make a wish to the winter fairies with a quick ring of the bell

One for luck
Two for good health
Three for love
and Four for a special wish that we shall not tell


When The Rain Comes Again

When the Rain Comes Again
I will not fall
I will stand my ground
And hold steady my stance

When the Rain Comes Again
I will not be overcome by the murky waters
I will reach up and stand tall
I will not leave my life to chance

When the Rain Comes Again
My fears will not win
I will not …  give in

When the Rain Comes Again
I will remain strong
I will hold onto that inner knowing
The light within will remain forever glowing

When the Rain Comes Again
I shall face the wind
I shall face the rain
It will know my strength
It will know my will
It will not cloud my mind
I will survive the rain

When the Rain Comes Again

Many Blessings,


Creative Writing Experiment – continued

I thought I wold take this task on once again and offer out to my facebook friends to lend me a line or phrase and I would in turn make that line or phrase into a poem or story for them.
Here’s how the experiment continued:

1) “The dragon silently wept.”

The dragon silently wept as the world before him slipped away
The days of soaring the skies without fear would have to wait until another day

The change brought about a sadness he’d never known
A great nothingness exists now where the trees had once grown

The wind that had once roared through the mountains, trees and hills
Now at a deadly standstill

The dragon silently wept as the world before him was now unknown

2) “The mermaid glanced at the distant shore.”

The mermaid glanced at the distant shore
Remembering the days from before

A longing inside her stirred
A glimpse of someone walking and then the flight of a bird

Scales and fins kept her from the land
Knowing her walk could only be upon the ocean’s sand

Her fantasies rang of journeys beyond the water’s edge
To walk, to fly, to run … in her next life, this was her pledge.

The mermaid glanced at the distant shore
Longing for something more.

3) “ as the sky turned to a vivid shade of purple the dragonflies appeared over the horizon”

As the sky turned to a vivid shade of purple the dragonflies appeared over the horizon, I knew a message was clearly on its way. A message from where? From whom? About what? I was sure to find out soon. Oh dear, this message seems to be quite encrypted. It feels like I am to understand something, but I am at a loss. I ask, please my dragonfly friends, can you take this pen and paper and just state the obvious for I am blind to the message you bring. Suddenly a dragonfly lands upon my shoulder and I knew. It was as if a connection was finally made and we shared thoughts. I felt a peace overtake me and I settled in for the message to be delivered. What came next was unexpected and yet comforting. There wasn’t any sort of contrived message about “do this” or “do that” the message was simply of love and that I am not alone.. no matter how distant from the world I may feel.. I am not. We are all connected and that connection is love.

4) “A single snowflake landed on the window pane”

A single snowflake landed on the window pane today
I longed for the days when all I had to do was go out and play

Remembering way back when
Running with arms stretched, pretending to glide upon the wind

Spinning in circles round and round
Playing hopscotch and drawing squares upon the ground

Puddles became the ocean and old logs became the pirate’s plank
All my pennies were stored safely in a piggy bank

No worries and no cares
Comforting hugs from teddy bears

A single snowflake landed on the window pane today
So who else wants to join me and go outside to play?

I hope you enjoy this play with words 🙂

Many Blessings,

My wings, you may not see

My wings, you may not see
But I can fly just as pretty as you please

I drift among the clouds and float upon the winds
I soar over the fields and dance atop the trees

My wings, you may not see
But I can fly… just sit back and watch me

The body feels what the mind can see
I am strong like the eagle, gentle as a butterfly, yet as swift as a honey bee

My wings, you may not see
But I can fly across the ocean or over the top of a mountain range

When I’m flying, my visions come clearly into sight
I know to some, this seems quite strange

My wings, you may not see
But I can fly, quick like any dragonfly

For when I soar, be it day or night
The winds of life lift me up and set me free

My wings, you may not see
But I can fly…. just trust me!

Many Blessings, 

Inside This Circle

Inside this circle the transformation begins
the drums beating out a rhythmic sound
Feel the magic as it vibrates up from this sacred ground

With great intent we enter into a realm of light
Dancing until the day becomes night

From what we once were to what we shall become
The ancient voices begin to hum

Our ancestors gather from far and near
Whispering change upon our ear

Nudging us forward in a positive light
Dancing to and fro with all our might

Our souls begin to sing a new song
Placing us upon our path, right where we belong 

Echos of what we once were released into the fire
Spirit lifts us higher and higher 

Letting go and allowing something new
Over this circle the winged ones flew.

The four legged gathered all around
Keeping the circle safe and sound.

And with the final dance and a chant or two
The transformation has granted us a brand new view.

Many Blessings, 

It’s Spring!

It’s Spring!

Blossoms, birds and bees
The green, green grass growing
Warm air whirling through the trees

It’s Spring!

Life sprouting right up from the ground
Daffodils, daisies and violets splashing color to and fro
While the robin fills the air with its sweet, melodic sound!

It’s Spring!

Revitalized from the ever glowing sun
Bare feet on the fresh mowed lawn
Blue skies and cloud watching … OH what fun!

It’s Spring!

A sunny day picnic for two
Baby ducks playing on the lake
A feeling all fresh and new!

It’s Spring!

A wonderland of life now buzzing through the air
The great awakening has begun
While I’m sunning on the deck without a worry or a care!

It’s Spring!

Many Blessings,

The Fallen One

The Fallen One … that would be me.

I have fallen right under his spell
It’s in his eyes, his touch and his smile
From the very first moment we met… I fell.

It’s a magic like no other I’ve ever known
I’m quite taken and can barely breathe
His spell has me shaking right to the bone

Uncontrolled with wild abandon, My love for him does soar
To the heavens high above the Earth and the ground
It’s like a mighty lion inside me with a ferocious roar

Ready to give way at any moment… any time
My heart is the dam filled to the rim, ready to burst
Overflowing with love and passion, spouting words in romantic rhyme.

I am taken by his presence when ever he is near
Waiting breathlessly for him to be at my side
My heart is pounding so loud, everyone must be able to hear!

He has taken my heart and my breath away
My life is surly blessed in every way
I have fallen under his spell since the very first day

I am the Fallen One … who has fallen for The One!


Through Raven Eyes

Through raven eyes I see the past, the present and the times to come..
Looking beyond the veil into the dream world where spirits dance
Seeing what others miss, Oh what fun!

With raven ears I hear the whispers from ancient times.
The sounds of Mother Earth that to most are unheard.
With these raven ears the words are translated quite often with poetic rhymes.

With raven wings I soar the great blue heavens above
Drifting on the currents of healing light
Where perspective is in sight and my heart fills with never-ending love.

With a raven voice I call out on the winds of change and hope
With healing intent and frame of mind
To bring light and love with prayers to help you cope.

With raven eyes I see more than most do.
I see the beyond the mask, beyond the shield..
With raven eyes, I see the real YOU!

Many Blessings,

The Story You May or May Not Know

There is a story inside me you may or may not know
I’ll try to explain it with a bit of rhyming flow.

This story runs deep, straight to the core
It begs for you to know me just a little bit more.

From my childhood to this adult like life
The girl, the friend, the lover, the mother and the wife.

I’ve been through the jungle and survived many a war
I’ve been lost but also found what I was looking for.

I’ve been held captive and I’ve known what it’s like to soar
I’ve found the keys and unlocked some doors.

Some right, some wrong
But through it all I have become ever so strong.

At times all I wanted to do was flee
But that wasn’t really me.

I’ve learned to conquer many of my fears
It has taken lots of practice and many years.

But here I am today as I stand
Offering you a welcoming hand.

Come into my world and see what I see
You’ll get a little glimpse of what it’s like to be me.

The many hats that I wear
The way it feels when people give you that stare.

The love that I give and the friends that I gain
And lets not forget how much fun it is when we dance in the rain!

From my hand to yours
I welcome you to know me just a little bit more.

Many Blessings,

Amethyst Dreams

Last night as I began to fall to sleep .. these words came to mind.

Amethyst Dreams

As the darkness falls this cold December night
The moon grows full with it’s brilliance ever so bright.

Amethyst dreams begin rolling through my head
As I find comfort in the warmth of my bed.

Crystalline fragments bathed in a purple hue
Conjuring dreams of something new.

Healing the soul by way of my dreams, one by one
Keeping my mind sober and wise, til the night is done.

Focused on tonight’s visions as the moonlight beams
I am empowered by these amethyst dreams.

I travel across spiritual realms of many throughout the night
And balance upon sparkling beams of amethyst light.

Where will these lucid dreams bathed in purple take me next?
Only Spirit knows, but I’m not worried nor vexed.

Inner peace has filled my mind, body and soul
I’m ready for where ever these visions wish me to go.

Amethyst dreams guiding us through the long, cold, wintery night
Lending us protection and power til the dark becomes new light.

Amethyst Dreams

Many Blessings,

All Hallows

All Hallows

All Hallows is drawing ever so near
Shhhhhhhhh, what’s that creepy sound I hear?

That’s the wind now blowing a cooler breeze
Creaks and moans radiating from the branches of the trees

They say the veil between worlds is growing really thin
Spirits are said to cross over and glide across the land with the wind

Vampires, werewolves, monsters and witches too
I have heard that they would like to meet with you

The vampires looking for a bit of a snack
You better watch out for that shadow lingering over your back

The werewolves ready their voices now
For when the sky darkens they will begin to holler and howl

Monsters of every shape, size and kind are said to come out
Scaring the children making them scream and shout

The witches cackle and ready their brew
On the hunt for a lizard, a toad and a rat or two

Don’t worry, there’s nothing really to fear
It’s just that time of the year

When all things spooky and unknown come out to play
Causing chaos and fright all night and day!

I love this time of the year when the breeze turns cold
When candy is free and spooky stories are told.

All Hallows its coming soon….
What was that, that just flew past the moon!

All Hallows

Many Blessings,


I’m a What?

I’m a What?

A witch, you say?
Let me tell you why that’s perfectly okay!

I’m filled with magic from head to toe
But things don’t just happen when I twitch my nose.

What’s that? A warty face and talking toad?
Come now, that misconception is pretty old.

Let me tell you all about the real me
Then maybe… just maybe you will see.

My book of shadows is merely the pages of my mind.
That magic candle burning bright, that’s the light I carry inside.

My magic potion, simply put, is the love that I share.
My broomstick, how I fly – that’s my dreams drifting through the air.

The cauldron that holds my brew
Well that’s my soul, I thought you knew!

The brew that bubbles deep inside
You see that’s my spirit, I cannot hide.

So call me a witch if that’s what you want to do.
I’ll send you some love, for that’s the kind of magic that I do!

Many Blessings,

My Inner Child Wants to Play

Candy and Caramel coated apples on a stick
The year is passing us by really quick

The trees begin to change into their fall attire
Families gather around a warm, glowing fire

Roasting and toasting as the year nears it’s end
You can feel a chill in the air from the cool Autumn wind

Trick or Treat, candy sweets and costumes too
Scary monsters roam the streets with ghastly ghost shouting BOO!

Pumpkins carved and lit to light the way
Scarecrows placed to rush the birds away

Shorter the days and longer the nights
Movies are playing to cause us a fright!

There’s a great big pile of leaves to jump in and play!
I think I’ll release my inner child today!

Tossing leaves of red, yellow, brown and gold high into the air
I don’t even care if they land in my hair!

For I am a child at heart and I like to live that way
Where all my dreams may come true…..
and my worries stop at how much longer I get to stay out and play. 

Yeah, I think I’ll release my inner child today!

Many Blessings,

Red, Yellow, Brown and Gold

Red, Yellow, Brown and Gold
The days grow short, the nights grow cold.

Magic shadows dance across the land.
Some even come out and touch my hand.

The winds now blow, sending a chill through the air.
The leaves fall gently to the ground without a care.

Summer has come to it’s end.
Autumn blessing to you I now send.

May the colors of the land fill you with a joyous delight.
May the Autumn fires keep you warm and cozy through the night.

As the darkness grows do not worry and do not fret.
For you’ll be blessed with every golden sunset.

You’ll be in my prayers and all my wishes.
Think of every falling leaf as angel kisses.

Safe you’ll be and forever you’ll know….
That my magic shall follow and protect you wherever you go.

Now wave goodbye to Summer’s end….
Say hello to Autumn with a smile and let the season know you are a friend.

Many Blessings,

To Believe

To Believe

 To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning.

It is to trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true.

To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,

To know the wonder of a stardust sky, and the wisdom of the man in the moon.

To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,

The innocence of a child’s eyes and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we learn to love.

To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us,
when it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.

To believe is to know we are not alone,
that life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.

To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.

Many Blessings,

After A While…

This poem is not one of my own but one I found years ago… stumbled across it again this morning and thought I would share. ENJOY!

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. .

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to leave you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure; You really are strong, you really do have worth.  And you learn, and you learn With every goodbye you learn.

~Artist Unknown~

Many Blessings,

If I could share…

waya777777If I could share with you a bit of me I would ask you to take hold my hand and let go

Let go, not of my hand .. but of all else .. so that you can experience what’s inside me

Holding my hand you would know my pain and that I hurt just as you when things go wrong

You would know my love and how its always growing

You would know my tears an what gets them flowing

You would know my passion and the roar of its fire

You would know my song without hearing it sung out-loud

You would know my heart and what makes it melt

You would know my touch.. both gentle and strong

You would know my faith and the strength of my will

You would know me just by holding my hand and standing still

You would know my faults, my failures and my sad regrets

You would know me and all my secrets

You would know not just what you see but those things that don’t always show

You would know me … just by holding my hand and letting go.

Many Blessings,

That Wicked Witch and Her Wicked Ways

There’s that wicked witch working her wicked ways
Healing others with the words she says

Colored chords and candles castling light
People talk and rumors spread that she’s just not right

Casting into the heavens for dreams and wishes come true
They says she conjures and cooks up some sort of terrible brew

Misunderstood and shunned to always be alone
This wicked witch is surely evil, straight to the bone

The smiles, goodness and light, people rarely choose to notice
You see, this wicked witch has as many layers as the lotus

She protects, she heals and she cares
But all that they talk about is how she scares

Dare she own a pet, especially a cat that is black
For the stories will grow of how once she flew off into  the night like a bat

Herbs hanging around the kitchen walls
Oils on the shelves with her crystal balls

There is meaning behind every tools she owns
But what they say is .. she kills animals to keep their bones

You see, they know not of what they speak
Their ignorance makes them ever so gullible and weak

This wicked witch is not what they make her out to be
She is as gentle and caring as a warm summer breeze

She follows the moon as it begins to wax and wane
She’s not afraid to dance nor sing in the rain

Her life is filled with magic in every way
Deeds for the good are done day by day

Caring for the Earth and all it’s creatures
Come, take a closer look at her features

You’ll not see a warted nose upon her face
Only a gentleness within her eyes and a smile to take its place

So, when you hear of them speak of the wicked witch and her wicked ways
Remember the words within this phrase:

Harm none .. do as ye will
For this is the motto of a witch that is not a fairytale but 100% real!

Many Blessings,

~ Judge not others by what you “think” you know…..
~ For you never know when the day will come that you’ll find yourself eating a bit of crow!

To Dance Among the Trees

Swaying with the wind
I dance beneath the willow, a long time friend
Branches so long and flowing
A place where magical dreams come to life
The willow, it heals me without even knowing

Beyond the hill the mighty oak stands
Like a courageous warrior in the night
The thunder Gods begin to sing and share their electric light
Strong and true, the oak reaches for my hand
Keeping our feet firmly planted to the ground
We sway together, right there where we stand

With a twirl and a twist I begin spinning
The birch tree reminds me of a new beginning
A good cleansing of the past
Visions begin to fill my mind really fast
Oh where will my imagination take me
These are the gifts from my friend, the birch tree

The view from here is of a natural perfection
I think I’ll two step on over to the cedar
He offers healing and protection
Beauty and justice, this cedar does share
As it’s branches reach up high through the air

Dancing on over to the next in line
Oh look, it’s the tall and lovely  pine
Creative and robust, he stands so very tall
Lending longevity to us all

Stumbling over the fields and hay
The maple helps me find balance on my way
Promises we make as we dance across the plane
The maple’s colors are absolutely insane

Now, I close my eyes and let intuition be my guide
I find myself beneath a great elm tree
Letting out a heavy sigh, it’s strength and will fill me

On my tippy toes, I flutter about
There’s an elder tree across the way, I scout
With a jiggle and a bounce or two
Well hello, there’s my friends the fairies
How do you do?

To Dance Among the Trees
It’s a blessing, like a cool Summer breeze

Twist and twirl, shake and bounce, swoon and sway
Have You Danced Among the Trees Today?

Many Blessings,

From The Front Porch Swing

From the Front Porch Swing

Sipping my cup a tea, a luminous sunrise greets me
Song birds flock overhead with ease singing their lovely melodies
A squirrel, a chipmunk and a lizard or two, stop by for a quick hello and how do you do

From the Front Porch Swing

Life can be so grand… sitting next to my love, holding his hand
A cuddle, a kiss, a wink… all go hand in hand with a nice cold drink
Conversations about the day … listening closely to everything he has to say

From the Front Porch Swing

The view is absolutely amazing … the sun above with brilliant rays of light blazing
Listening to the rustle of the leaves as the wind blows through the Summer trees
With a heavy sigh and a soft smile .. I could sit here for a very long while

From the Front Porch Swing

The days light slowly turns to night
The June bugs slow their hummm and lightening bugs come out for a bit of fun
The moon’s light and twinkle from the stars above fill me with a warm, gentle kind of love

From the Front Porch Swing

Problems and stress all fade away, now this is the way to spend your day!
Swinging to and fro… letting it all go.
Come have a seat next to me… You’ll soon see how great life can be.

From the Front Porch Swing

Many Blessings,

Magic Wish

I wrote this a few years back and thought it was a time to reshare 🙂
Don’t Make Me

Don’t make me call on the rain to hide the tears

Don’t make me call on the wind to carry away the fears

Don’t make me!

I tell you I have been there … so many times.. I have visited this place … you know.. that sad place deep inside you where you go to when you’ve been hurt.. when you’re sad and lonely .. when you feel like no one else in the world feels the way you do.

That place you escape to … that place where you think no one will notice how sad and lonely you are or how deeply hurt  you may be..

I just wanted to send out a great big {{{hug}}} to all those finding themselves in that place.

So I’m posting this little message to let you know you’re not alone.. there are people who care.. you just have to let them help you .. let them love and care for you ..

Pull yourself out of that lonely place and try to have a bit of fun.. laugh … and live .. don’t let anyone make you feel like you don’t deserve to be loved  ..

Here’s a bit of magic coming your way .. hoping you’ll be able to laugh and have some fun … and most importantly feel the love this magic wish brings


Now close your eyes and count to three…
Nod your head and accept this magic wish I send to out thee…..

Jump up and stomp the ground .. bang on the floor and make a lot of sound!

Turn on some musical tunes … now scream and shout at the moon

Spin and turn around really really fast … keep on going as I finish out this wish I cast

Now stop and throw your arms up into the air ….
Cast away all your worries and all your cares

Pull your arms in really close and give yourself a great big hug …
Hold on tight…. make it really really snug

Feel the magic from above .. feel the warmth and all my love

I’m sending you now, a magic feather
Now see.. don’t you feel better?


Many Blessings of love and magic,

Many Moons

I honor of tonight’s New Moon.. a time of new beginnings .. a fresh start ..


Many Moons

Many Moons, in my days I have seen
Many Moons, have passed over as I dream

Protected by the Wolf Moon of January
Strengthened by the Storm Moon of February

Many Moons, I have lived
Many Moons, I have died

Planted Seeds of Knowledge by the Chaste Moon in March
Empowered by the Seed Moon of April

Many Moons, I have laughed
Many Moons, I have cried

Grown beneath the Flower Moon of May
Loved by the Lover’s Moon of June

Many Moons, I do wish
Many Moons, I do pray

Blessed by the Mead Moon of July
Reaped my harvest by the Wyrt Moon of August

Many Moons, my heart does sing
Many Moons, each and every one a beautiful thing

Nurtured by the Harvest Moon of September
Reflected beneath the Blood Moon of October

Many Moons, the magic I have felt
Many Moons, empowered by thy light

Counted my blessings beneath the Snow Moon of November
Healed by the Long Night’s Moon of December

Many Moons, have come to pass
Many Moons, yet to come

Many Moons of divine light
Many Moons have watched over us through the night

Many Moons, casting shadows beneath my wings as I now take a mystic flight
Soaring under the Moons radiant Light!


Many Blessings,

I have to say I’m not perfect in anyway .. except one…
I’m perfect only at being ME!

I can’t sing.. my dancing is just ok …
I can rhyme a little but try to write a lot …
I know how to use a paintbrush but the greatest, I’m certainly not
My drawings are never exact … even my glass sometimes gets chipped
My words sometimes come out wrong
My days often flawed
But I’m ME and that’s all I can be…

I try my best and give it my all
But sometimes I still hit that wall
I try to see from all points of view..
But my vision sometimes goes  askew

To myself I try to always be true
Even if we don’t agree … doesn’t mean I don’t like  or respect you
I have to stand my ground and stay true to who I am
Otherwise I’m nothing more than a joke, a  sham

So there you have it .. I’m just me..
As perfectly as I can be..
Flaws and all .. this is me

Perfectly ME!


From a thought to a dream

From a thought to a dream
From a dream to reality
We all have within us this ability

To make our wishes and dreams come true
The power is there, sitting deep inside you

Thoughts become words, words become action
The universe works in reaction

Speak out loud, what you wish to see
Answers will soon come to thee

With honor and love in your heart
For the dream to come true
You must play an active part

Walking in the direction of your dream
It’s not as easy as it may seem

Obstacles sometimes block the way
Never give up, no matter what anyone has to say

Positive thoughts and actions ease the trail
Don’t worry about “What if I fail”

Where there is a will, there is a way
That’s what I’ve always heard them say

So follow your heart and you shall soon see
What was once a dream, has now become reality!

Many Blessings,

These Pages

These are the pages of my life…

Turn them with ease, gentleness and care.
My soul, these pages do bare

This path is mine, not unlike yours
Full of many roads, hallways and doors.

Tears, laughter, sorrow and pain
Lessons learned again and again

Secrets whispered in the night
Wishes placed on the wings of butterflies in flight

These pages contain all that is me
Bound in leather, written for all to see

Scrapes and bruises, stitches and scars
Always dreaming beneath the stars

Creating for creation’s sake
Sitting with my love by the lake

Kisses and cuddles late at night
Seeing with second sight

Ghosts and spirits roaming about
Wondering what this life is all about

A smile.. a look
It’s all right here.. written on the pages of this book

Fairy tales that do come true..
Have a seat and let me tell you

My light, at times has nearly gone out
My head filled with so much self doubt

This life has had it’s highs and lows
But that light in me… still it glows

I’ll not give up on the dreams I dream
It’s never as easy as it may seem

Twists and turns, wear and tear
Let me tell you… I’ve been there!

It began with “Once upon a time…”
Just like in those old nursery rhymes

There will be no end…  you see
For my soul will continue on buzzing like a bee

So, I’ll see you in the here after
Living Happily ever after.


Many Blessings,

Feeling the Flow

Inspired by a post I read earlier this morning about feeling the flow  and energy of all things.

Feeling the Flow

It’s here and there .. it’s all around us everywhere!
It’s energy fills us and brings us into being
It’s something worth feeling .. something worth seeing…

The flow, it comes in waves of greatness
Swirling all around and bathing us

It’s not in just you and me
It’s in the buzzing of every bee and the whisper of every tree

It’s in the lake, the pond and every river, ocean and stream
It fills us like the visions in a dream

Circling all around us in a swift and steady fashion
Feeling the vibration is beyond words or imagination

The Earth and it’s hummm
Like the beating of an ancient drum

Pounding deep from within it’s core
Feeding life into each and every pore

Rushing through flesh and bone, wood and stone
It’s always there and never gone

Feel it now with your heart, soul and very being
Close your eyes and experience with me this amazing feeling

Feel it now with more than just your hand
Feel it as it moves across the land

The flow of life as it sways to and fro
That fills us all each and every day as we grow

Many Blessings,

A Mother’s Day Wish

leaves 1A Mother’s Day Wish

This isn’t the typical Mother’s Day wish you see..

This isn’t a wish for mother’s like you and me ….

It’s the wish we, as mothers make

For our child or children’s sake!

It’s the reason we fuss and fret

It’s why there are rules we must set.

It’s not for the reasons that you think you know

It’s not because we like grounding and saying “NO!”

The wishes a mother makes ….

Are in hopes that her babies don’t make the same mistakes

You see it starts before you begin to breathe and cry

We set out in hopes to bring you a much bluer sky

We wish you safety and a road not quite so hard

We wish for you to never know the pain of a broken heart

We wish for your travels to always be a blast

We wish you love that will surely last

We try to protect you …and keep you from that inevitable fall

Our goal is to be there when you have no one else to call

May your years be kinder

May your love be grander

May your days be filled with greatness

May your worries be less

So you see it’s not that we just want to nag and fuss

We only meant for you to have a better life than us ..

Many Blessings,

P.S. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!

Astrological Wonders

Astrological Wonders

  What’s that in the night sky I see?

It’s the mighty bull, Taurus looking back at me.

And who is that with the stinger on its tail?

Oh, that’s Scorpio, I know that one well.

There is Gemini with her two faces

She can see in two different places.

Over there I see Pisces, the two fishes

I think that grants me two more wishes

With Virgo, Libra and Leo over there way up high

I sit and stare at the star filled sky.

Cancer, Aries and Aquarius

Oh how they leave me so curious.

Finally I see Capricorn and Sagittarius shining like a light

It’s late, so for now I’ll just bid thee a goodnight.

I’m Letting Go

IMG_8797I’m letting go of this pain ..
Hoping it will move on like yesterday’s rain

No longer does it have a place within
No more sadness .. I’m sending it away with the wind

The hurt is far more than I can bare
I’m washing it away like the grey in my hair

Happiness and light are welcome to stay
As for this pain … you can go and stay far far away

Leave me alone I don’t like how you make me feel
It seems harder each time to heal

I’m not your victim.. I’m not your prey
What more is there to say

Hurt and Pain … it’s you I really don’t like!
I don’t care if you leap, run, drive or take flight!

Just go now and take a hike!
