IMAGINATION

In your mind

Create a sky

Where you can fly

With eagles high.

Create a cave

Where you can swim

With big blue whales

And grey dolphins.

Use your mind

And your heart

To DREAM a world

That’s set apart-

A place for you

To heal and play

Grow new wishes

For brighter days.

Back on Earth

Your dreams will find

Their way to influence

Your waking mind.

Your energy will rise

To match your vision

Impacting your life

And daily decisions.

Soon you’ll move

Closer in TIME

To your soul’s place

And Divine DESIGN.

Dolphin Love

I spent two months on the Big Island of Hawaii in November and December 2012 and spent the week of 12/21/12 (including the solstice) swimming off the Kona coast with a pod of wild dolphins.  It was the most magical, intense, wonderful, and joyful experience of my life.  Since that week I dream about dolphins regularly, including last night.  I think I am meant to work with them in a healing capacity–taking people to do dolphin-art-yoga retreats, perhaps.  Since, professionally, I am a therapist/healer/artist/yoga instructor and spending time with dolphins naturally opens one’s heart (and thus is healing), I think this is a beautiful idea.  Until I manifest that possibility, however, I am left with a fountain of appreciation flowing from my heart to the dolphins (dolphriends!) that inspires me to write little whimsical poems and create playful art.

Little dophin

In the sea-

Thinking of you

Uplifts me

How you dash

Flip and twirl

Makes me smile

My heart swirl

So much joy

So much love

With you in my life

I am above

The sorrow and fear

The woes of the day

In the o c e a n depths

We splash and play

Thank you for

The gifts you bring

Simply by swimming

And doing your thing

Ode to a Star

I love you stars.

You are a part of my day.

Inside my body

You twinkle and play.

Outside at night

You shine so bright.

I smile at the sky

And watch you pass by.

Slowly you move

Or I guess I do, too.

I ponder the Mystery

When I look at you.

Thank you for gracing

My life with your shine.

You inspire my joy

When love’s hard to find.

There’s always a star

Up high and in me.

As long as I chase it

I always feel free.
