Awakening...
By John McLeod

Awakening, dawn's chorus
Welcoming,
The day new, untouched
Waiting to be filled....

And will we paint a rainbow
With all its promise
Or dull the canvas
Sadly seen?

Each day brings its own colours
To be chosen, mixed,
Pigments of joy,
Happy moments,
Smiles and laughter....

And which will you choose?
For 'Life' is choice,
We are all painters
In our own way,
All needing to create
Something of worth,
Of lasting beauty,
Marking our journey....

Footprints in the sand....

The sky today is azure,
The sun warm and golden
A filigree of light and shadow-play
Through the gently swaying trees.

I clean my brushes,
Choose my palette
Of vibrant, living colours,
And begin to fill
Today's blank canvas

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and gorgeous cakes, thank goodness they are calorie free or else I'd be a right roly poly.

May the Light be Upon You

May the Light be upon you, may It illumine every
Dark corner of your mind and bring clarity and
Awareness revealing the terrifying illusions you
Believed hid there for eons.

May the Light be upon the fearful judgments that
Were created out of a false past, which set up
Countless reference points to establish a false future.

May the Light be upon all that remains, with past and
Future gone...where can you then live but Now?

And with this New understanding, fear must forever leave
You for what is to fear if the past has dissolved into Now?

Without fear of any kind, can anything be left but its opposite...
Love?

Let the Light be upon the Love that is the Truth of living Now.


John McIntosh and Rev. Jo Ann "Ananda" Polito
~Teach Only Love

Welcoming The New Day

~Margherita Rueger

While spotting the morning star
welcome dawn with a smile
let your gaze roam along
the pink tinted horizon
embrace the sky and the earth
and whisper softly "I love you".
Then watch the glowing light
of the new day expanding
and hear the answer vibrating
deep within your heart:
"I love you too!"
