this

miracle-making

amazing

know-it-all

do-it-all

omnipresent

omniscient

omnipotent

PRESENCE…

that permeates all that is…

 

this

mystical

mysterious

PRESENCE

that I cannot control…

and do not understand…

 

it is to

THIS

 

the

UN-NAMEABLE 

that I now

surrender

allowing

IT

   to possess me…

body

mind

   soul

 

permitting

IT

to

flow

in

through

and

as...

all

that

I AM

letting

IT

manifest

as

FORM

in this

3rd dimension of being...

according to

IT’S

WILL…

and

IT’S

PLAN…

not

   mine

This exquisite view of the Hutchinson River

The Long Island Sound

And the ever-changing Wetlands

Never ceases to fascinate and enthrall

Day after day

Season after season

Year after year of my life

Witnessing

The shifts in my soul

That keep time with the changing seasons

Today is a day of honoring

Mother Nature as She

Signals the approach of

Death

In a wild and vivid display of

Outrageous Color!

You go, Girl!

As The Fog Lifts…

Long Island Sound; photo by Toni Roberts

Long Island Sound; photo by Toni Roberts

When I am stripped naked and raw by Life
I have learned to not wait so long
Before journeying inward to my
Self of Wisdom

There are times that I sit at my altar
Black and white marbled composition notebook and
Uniball pen in hand…
Waiting

At other times
I seek answers from You
With a toss of the coins and I Ching text
Close at hand…

As the fog lifts
I learn to come to You directlyimmediately
Before my throat constricts and begins to ache with unshed tears
Before my heart breaks from the weight of hidden matters
That grow heavier with neglect and inattention

As the fog lifts
I learn to come to You
Without the hesitationmistrustdisbelieffears and doubts
That used to sully our relationship…
Blocking the outer signsinner signalsurgespeopleopportunities
And mysterious inner knowings that now pour into consciousness
Faster than a New York minute
And poof…another obstacle removed…
Another victory over painhumiliation…and mis-comprehensions
Perfect solutions unfolding one by one in perfect order…
From the inside out…as the fog lifts…and I move smoothly on

And The Lion Roars On…
