We Need Peace

Sea of Tranquility

Sea of Tranquility

 We Need Peace 

We need Peace … because it is the fertile soil

Within which the rose of happiness can grow

We need peace because it’s pathway is royal

Upon which life’s river delights to flow

We need peace because it’s vastness is the ocean

Large enough for the mighty whale to swim

We need peace because it’s the stage holds up the choir

So the Symphony of Beauty can begin 

We need peace because it’s stillness calms the forest

Which allows the breeze to whisper songs that are divine

We need peace because it is the canvas of the one sky

Upon which the sun and stars can truly shine

So let’ s plant peace now

And help it bloom

Breathe it in and breathe it out

Be as still as the moon

Every morning 

And each evening too

Water it with your love

And it’s love will water you…

We need peace … because it is the flame that flickers

Even when the raging storm blows gales of force

We need peace because it’s arms always hold us 

And allows us to live closely to our source 

We need peace because it is the spring where deer sip

When the summer’s heat has made the lake go dry

We need Peace because it is the set of angel’s wings

Upon which our dreams of joy reach high to fly

So Let’ s plant peace now

And help it bloom

breathe it in and breathe it out

Be as still as the moon

Every morning 

And each evening too

Water it with your love

And it’s love will water you…

Sea of Tranquility

Sea of Tranquility

Sea of Tranquility

 After the dance

After the storm

After the work

Before the new is born…

Behold the Sea of Tranquility.

In a landscape of stillness

And calm gentle ease,

Are memories that reflect

Our hearts like the seas.

As waves are the breath of the waters 

So does our own breath to carry us 

To the place we are quiet and free.

The far side of our souls

Where bliss awaits now.

We cross on the boats with peace

Written on the stern and the bow.

Here where we find our origin

And the answers we seek.

Clouds part and reveal

An island of light and mountain peak

Where ancient truths and deep mysteries await and abide

And the ever-present guardian in the sky does not hide.

Silently witness the grace of clouds,

As the goddess of the moon

Sends s loving embrace.

Evoking heavenly melodies to pour forth from our temple heart

They echo through the eons 

For new dreams to start.

Goddess may you stay and enchant us forever

As we are still, you unveil the door to your treasure.

All who have dared to gaze into this sea

Know of the power of tranquility.

In the mirror of the soul

In the quest for the truth

Is an ageless moment,

Endless joy, eternal youth.

The blooming heart

As it unfolds like a flower

Will bestow the gateway

To the seat of the power.

Where a sweetness and charm

A fragrance calls to just be…

At the shores of the sea

Of Tranquility.

Roots in the Sky

Sea of Tranquility

Roots in the Sky

 Roots in the Sky

I seek to stay fastened

No false step can untie

My union with celestial bliss

And my roots in the sky

As the earth feeds my body, 

The sun feeds soul words,

And my heart dances upon golden clouds 

With songs of joyous skybirds

The caress of a breeze

From the hidden hand whence I came

Roots in the sky

Where there is no guilt and no shame.

I reach to the stars

Reassured by heaven’s glow

The rain is the ladder

Towards new heights I grow

Roots in the sky

Above the vast world’s woes

Space and room to think

And for the spirit to show...

And oh..

How I’d like to outstretch my love

To each corner of the earth

As I can up above 

and find the first note of the most ancient song 

And the first valley and hill to which all birds sing along

And discover the power creation employs

to give to the earth all of the sky’s joys....

and to see the earth detached as I fly

I’m part of creation with my roots in the sky.

Roots and Wings

Temple of the Goddess

Roots in the Sky

 Roots and Wings

We plant our roots deep in the ancient soil

So we may spread our wings in the unborn sky

We work along with Nature’s purpose

So our dreams will please the divine eyes

We heal our wounds with timeless wisdom

We point our life towards the light

We find courage to face the mirror

With love we learn to embrace the sight

And if we want the noble life

And taste all the sweetest fruits

We must dig down into the darkness of the earth 

And nurture all our hidden roots

Our ancestor’s gifts we rediscover

Tradition’s power unites our hearts

We bond with friends and dreams and lovers

Who challenge all we were bold enough to start

So we lift our eyes to the clouds and stars

So on wings of wonder our dreams take flight

To land upon the tree that Nature placed

Whose roots connect with all of life

And if we want the noble life

And taste all the sweetest truths

We must dig down into the darkness of the earth 

And nurture all our hidden roots

Deep in the night

In our dreams of truth

We behold the long lost

Hidden roots

And if we want the sweetest fruits

We must nurture our hidden roots.

Temple of the Goddess

Temple of the Goddess

Temple of the Goddess

 Temple of the Goddess

She walks with every woman

Yet in some she dares to dance

And delight men to their highest dream

With just a passing glance 

Her patient understanding 

A gift she holds holds from birth

She grows and ebbs across the sky

Yet her roots are deep in earth. 

In the temple of the goddess

She sings riddles with the rose;

‘When you drink the sacred waters

The fountain overflows’

And from the valley hear her

In the wind she shares a kiss

‘One blessing to the next

Is the way to bliss.’

When you venture to the temple

And see worship her in the moon above,

Feel, as she caresses softly... 

Within your heart is her temple of love.

Awakening

Temple of the Goddess

Temple of the Goddess

 Awakening

Dawn of consciousness, 

birthing heart awareness,

stirring from a primordial slumber, 

we sleep no more in patterns of self-doubt and rejection.

Instead we rise forward towards the realm of truth and light.

We have contained the dragon sea of nightmares securely behind a rock wall of wisdom and love

So, journeyers, the vista is free and clear for passing....and a new realm awaits to be experienced,

like a brilliant morning pathway beneath a glowing sunrise.

Awaken and find yourself in a world we have imagined into being, 

a world we have formed from from visions of the heart...
