Silver Waves Upon The Shore by Kelly Deschler (2016)
Pushed there for a thousand years
and will be for a thousand more,
pushed there by the gentle winds
the silver waves upon the shore.
Ancient trees who watched here daily
are now dark silhouettes 'round the rim,
as dusk settles in over the still lake
and a dragonfly takes a final skim.
As the sun dips below the surface
silver waters gain a hint of gold,
their riches flow around my feet
giving me memories to be told.
The sands of time sift down below
where life goes drifting by,
and laid there for a thousand years
and beneath them, so shall I.
And become like a silhouette
to watch all life drift by,
and reliving in every moment
never stopping to ask why.
Pushed there by flowing currents
and the wind's most gentle roar,
I fade away like the golden sun
glint silver waves upon the shore. -

This World Appeals To Me In Many Levels by Anne - Lise Andresen and Liam McDaid (2015)
Dear mother nature you're supposed
to make the world a good place to be in
Today the sky had hues of orange
Life begins every day when the sun arises
Mixed with the fire's toast
drinking of daylight
Nature's wonderful respect for darkness
A moon shared the sky
And you will never feel disappointed
To be born again off you
with the sun setting
Dipping down golden over mountains
Like a soul lost awaiting to be found
A slim narrow smile pearly shines
Awaiting with anticipation
Night closing in as twilight holds a dream
The master's at work
the divinity of a deity
Whispers of a breeze through fir trees
Rusting branches sway dancing freely
Surely created a deep impression inside me
Life begins every day
when the sun takes center stage
A sharp cutting breath hits home
Diamond cutting thoughts invade
Sailing away into another world
The moon and the stars come out in full force
Sharing a daydream as the night closes in
Your eyes carry the sun peaking through the clouds
Destiny living and breathing the same air
Until bliss becomes your daily drink -

Last Lingering Light by Emile Pinet (2015)
A scarlet sun bleeds onto a blue sky,
behind branches of a majestic oak.
And shadows ink its leaves in silhouette,
as lonely crickets chirp and bullfrogs croak.
I can hear the crops rippling in the breeze,
and a brook babbling with a southern drawl.
Yet, they’re lost to the quiet of night,
as time slows to a perceptible crawl.
When adventurous moths take to the air,
acrobatic bats blindly hunt in flight.
And as darkness descends like a curtain,
day acquiesces to the might of night.
A quicksilver moon pools amidst the clouds,
dripping drops of sunshine onto the lake.
And all of heaven soon starts to glitter,
as billions of sleeping stars now awake.
The hooting of an owl encourages dusk
to extinguish the last lingering light.
And diurnal animals go to sleep,
as nature silently whispers, Goodnight. -
“Those who don’t believe in magic will never see it.”
So many times people have told me it was their dream to fly.
Are you living your dream?
Will you let your dream become Real??!!!
Dream Often. #justfly#onawing#dream
Tickets booked for France, departure scheduled for early July. Seeing family again after about 5 years, kind of spur of the moment decision but long overdue. Felix will be joining me, so hopefully we will be able to get a lot of great photos in the coming weeks. It will be interesting to see how this experience slots into the path of recovery. Maybe reconnecting with Family will give me a stronger sense of what to do next in terms of work and life in general.
Then again, maybe it will help me learn how to be "in the moment", something I am terrible at.
Blue Denim Kyanite Dragons, crafted for Page in Oregon. Making tangible creatures that perhaps posess something more, beyond the obvious is still intriguing to me, after all these years. It's this study, the chance for artistic expression and final object creation, involved in delving into the mysteries around us that keep me both grounded and elevated in spirit. We are very glad others share in this sensibility 💙
