Journey in the Meadow


Journey into the Meadow

Self constantly adjusting
It does not mean I am trusting
Though I sense and recognize the Star
That is guiding me so far
There remains a constant asking
Thus, I keep the door ajar.

My journey companions are free at my side
Though I challenge my own Self
For want of being left aside
Unbeknownst to me
We have all been taken inside.

The Pearls are bright
The Fox is light
The Amazon is clear
It leads us all near.

In the meadow we learn the verse
We call together, one sound,
The very first,
The Word of Glory,
Sound of Thirst
Satiated with the Sound
All is Golden when found.

The beat resounding and rebounds
Majestic Willow
keep us safe in the meadow.

Raptures of sweetest movement
the heart captures the moment
When the Willow opens its arms
embracing all life with radiating spark
we receive an abundance of all parts.

The sound is just, it is right
No other equal its flight
White Dove coo echo in the Meadow
mingling with the One Sound
Heal in the morrow.

Uphill Beginning



In front of me

There lies a long uphill road 

A sandy earthy colored path

Ages of embedded footprints from

Enthusiastic travelers before me

Carpet of lush green grass

Alongside the path

Bright sunny day

Vast blue sky up above


With no hesitation in my movement,

Walking towards the uphill inviting road

There is a release of accomplishment

In the desire to travel uphill 

An opportunity for a great journey 


Who is to say that I would undergo this period of travel 

Unbeknownst to me

Even as I stand on the threshold of this journey 

An intelligent knowing within me signals that it knows

Why I am embarking on this very day


What volition propels me to climb? 

Effortless climb, pleasant beginning

I have answered its call 

I am going towards the climb 


It is but a beginning

In no way is it the end of the journey

I am being reminded that during the climb

There will be stones to carry

There will be slips and falls 


The only way now is forward and up

What more could I ask for 

What more will I ever need 


Answers a long ago forgotten question 

The journey has begun.
