That which awakens your soul -
that which consumes you 
to the extent
that you pray it will 
never disappear. 

eats away at your insides
as you recognize
that your passion 
is not acceptable,
not within Society,
not in this culture....
not in this world.

Love taking photographs -


So often I hide
all that is within me:
the passion, the tears,
the love, the fears.

To express feeling is to live
as well as to die.
Passion implodes
within my soul
demanding to be recognized
though nowhere to go.

It's easier to hide
and pretend
that we fit
until our eyes
meet another
who does not wish
to hide.

And our soul 
reaches out
hoping, praying
to be accepted.

New Creation

Another item ready to be listed on etsy - hopefully will get to today!

Morning skies

Morning skies;
touches of pink;
clouds awakening
touching our souls.

Morning skies
called Spirit
reminding us
of gratitude,
humility and passion.

Passion for our lives,
our children,
our work.
Passion for our lovers
whether with us or not.

Morning skies
opening our hearts
into balance
reminding us not only
of love
but the loneliness
that can also pierce
our souls.

Blazing light 
piercing the soul - 
a remembrance 
of Oneness -
of Humanity.
Gently caressing the mountainside,
silhouetting Spirit.

Such is the Sun
as it encompasses the horizon.
Such is your touch 
as I feel your passion.
Golden Sky
reflected within your eyes
trusting my words
acknowedging the inevitable.
The truth of life -
spirit within -
asking to be heard -
demanding to be touched -
knowing the Oneness 
within you and I.

One of my many watercolors

The typing cat

And I thought I was the only one that could type -
but aren't her eyes closed?

Meeting lips

She entered the room -
candles glowing, music playing.
Dressed in black - 
blond hair flowing down her back.
Her presence more than a body.
Her scent beyond comprehension.
As she moved
the energy moved with her. 
Intensity of the moment increased.
She danced and swayed to the Spirit inside
demanding Soul to connect.
No words, no song
just naked understanding
as she danced to the 
beat of my heart. 
She overthrew all
mental knowledge.
I understood nothing
but knew one thing:
my lips were to meet hers.

A New Day

Sun rises;
a happy hello;
busy people to & fro .
I stand on the hillside
watching below;
knowing in Spirit
that I must go.

I enter the world 
overwhelmed by emotions -
praying for angels...
watching the devil.
The world is a balance
of good and bad;
a tic-tac-toe
of emotional attachments.
I find myself
 set apart,
knowing answers
unable to be spoken
with a passion to love
too intense to be felt
and a soul praying
for love and compassion
as others fight
within themselves.

Where I lived in Oregon - don't miss the rain but boy I miss the woods and there is a stream running under the side porch under the stairs you can see going up to the house.
