"Whispers of Light"

"Whispers of Light" is a book of one hundred and eight poems and aspires to poetry's potential to lift, inspire and nourish the heart, mind and soul. Poetry, like a fragrant spring morning or a bolt of lightning in a summer sky, captures the mind and gives wings to our thoughts. Poems reach deep into hidden inner chambers to touch and heal. They pierce the cloud of unknowing to reveal the light of awakening, and they unveil the beauty that language can only point to.

Nature is the mystical wizard that will open our eyes to miracles if we but look and listen. Truth more astonishing than fairytales and fiction speaks silently and waits for an ear. A few words can sometimes move us to depths of inspiration. Yet, words themselves can only ever be but pale reflections of that which they would express. It is That which cannot be spoken that poetry must be inspired by and guide us to.

Sample Poems From "Whispers of Light"
     

Celestial Garden

The night sky above is a heavenly garden
bathed in moonlight
and strewn with star-flowers

In the mystical radiance of dawn
sun will shine upon this earthly garden

Where galaxies of larkspur and
golden butterfly weed

Lift their faces like blossoms of stardust
and give freely the fragrance of creation

From the celestial garden, the universe

Moonglow and Star-Jewels

The golden moon-disk
floats in quiet ecstasy

Stars twinkle like diamonds
scattered on a black velvet scarf

How desolate would be
the deep darkness of night

Were it not for moonglow
and star-jewels in the sky

"The Mystical Dance"

Many people have experiences in nature, or within themselves, which are often beyond what language seems adequate to express. Experiences of peace, reverence, awe, bliss, a sense of the presence of something larger than ourselves and all of humankind. 

It is these experiences, that we might say are of a mystical nature, that have found some expression in the word forms in this book. 

Although words can only point to or remind us of the fullness of these moments, hopefully there are some sign posts and reminders in the pages that follow.

Sample Poems From "The Mystical Dance"
 

Nature’s Song-Prayer


I rise in the darkness of early morn
to witness the awakening

The earth sighs and
slowly breathes in the light of dawn

The dance of a new day
begins softly as the flowers stir

And begin to open their petals
to gather sunbeams and dewdrops

Sustenance for their ethereal forms

Perfect gentle rhythms
of birdsongs and rustling leaves

Fill the air and adorn the silence

This is Nature’s song-prayer
Fragrant with peace

Alive with the silent joy
Of Creation unfolding

SkyLight In My Mind


Mid-night in my dreaming
I found a skyLight
in the ceiling of my mind

A portal through the roof
of my thoughts
into the silent meditation sky

An ecstatic moon shone above,
luminous in the radiance
of her reflected Truth-light

Let me be like the dream moon
quietly, blissfully, reflecting
the divine Source-light of being
