The Sunlight Streaming Through the Forest

20160709_140226

I’m ready now My Love to walk closer, to go deeper, as we watch the sunlight streaming through the forest,

absorbing the darkness surrounding the oak trees and the pines, in the coolness

of the morning.  Hold me My Love, and let’s lift up a prayer, thanking Him

for the beauty. In close, and as we touch each other’s hair

the light dances, on both of us.

As I Wander

20160709_140150

As I wander through woods it begins to lightly rain,

hood up, shoes crunching twigs, even where winter was singing,

the harshness has ended. And now it is time for

the robin, the blue jay squawking, gawking,

jumping from branch to branch

and a dove

coos

asking for peace.

White Cranes

20160514_122632

As white cranes with black legs, slowly meander through the reeds

sifting food, a turtle is brave enough to break the surface

of the pond, and a spring rain falls causing

a young couple to run laughing, to hide

under the cover of large green leaves.

And the white cranes,

stand in the rain pouring.

Laughing at the Hawk

100_5717

A hawk shifts slightly on one of the highest branches, as he listens

to a mouse below burrowing, through last year’s leaves.

A chipmunk jumps here and there, bolder today

due to the density of the fog,

laughing at the hawk, because

all of the creatures know

there will be no hunting

in the forest, today.

A Great Shaking Within the Mystical Forest

100_1056

As many of you know I have a fiction blog, which you can find here:

www.themysticalforest.wordpress.com

Well, I’m not sure how it happened really, but there has been a noticeable change in the direction the stories have taken. I started out with some great series, including the Sacred Mountain and Sword of Talon Series.

There you will find kings and queens, swords, adventure, and romance. One of my favorite features were the Living Bows (as in bows and arrows). I was having a great time.

But you know what?? My focus as a writer has changed. Now I write a lot more about compassion, and angels helping people, and even God caring about us……h’mmm. Perhaps that was the real me in the first place.

Currently an angel is shaking up the site, his name is Henry Vu. Originally Henry was from Vietnam, and let me tell you, this dude is powerful! Powerful, as in filled with compassion.

Anyway I’m saying/writing this to let you know you will see some changes over there, including the name! I’m not sure about the new name yet, but I think it will have the word Sky or Skies in it.

Thanks for reading.

Peace.

P.S. This is not my normal morning post. I’ll be sending out a love poem shortly!

Dancing in the Forest

20160927_151933

Back when the earth was young My Love, we would dance in the forest

and you twirled next to the pine trees, while my heart left me

with wings. And we lived staring at each other’s face

never doubting our hope, our faith.

Now that we are older we must

press through the insanity

of our world, making sure

we dance in the forest

so you can twirl

and my heart

can leave me

with wings.
