Reflections of the Inner Light


nothing is as it seems
heart strings are played
as if a toy lute
love sinks deep
into the abyss
looking for light
underneath source
is only a reflection
and cannot be seen
with all the eyes
in sadness
still staring
still tearing
only felt
with the heart
by the warm glow
an ever present
sacred sun
who gives life
to shadows
on the walls
as mirrors of
a bless’ed
inner light


Another Dream

shadows on stone

Shadows longing etched in stone
Reflections of their being
Presence stills the heart and mind
Inside where she lies dreaming

Of testaments to every word
The heart has come to know
A fruit to nourish all they will
While living here below

the heaven left when life began
Its breathing came to be
As light was formed so far beyond
A sunrise on this sea

of love their everlasting day
Reflecting in the saffron sun
Beneath the skin imagining
The wonders left undone

So there another evening rolls
and settles in these hearts
Clouds drift by the jealous moon
Another dream departs



Can you count your blessings ~
will we ever find a way to say ~
I found my way to heaven
before the break of day

Are there ever tears enough
to feel so bad as when
we held the suffering of friends
and longed to make it end

Where will we ever find
the truth of light in life
is time enough to ever know
the stars so far and wide

Or there within the rainbow
will we see the joy beyond
that carries souls forever free
into love’s eternal home

For only when we come to see
the light beyond the storm
will we have learned the message of
the ones who went before
