that an

   INFLUX

and then immediate 

OUTFLOW

of

   DIVINE LOVE…

is the

ANTIDOTE

to

FEAR

ANXIETY

and all else that would do one

   HARM…

Dawn Rising Over The Wetlands – Photo by Toni Roberts

this

LIFE

is indeed a

DELICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…

in which we

HUMANS

are

BOUND

one-to-the-other

and

to the

SOURCE

of our

   BEING…

in ways we’ve

YET

to

COMPREHEND

 

 

 

 

 

Sitting…Breathing…Waiting…Listening…

none

of

   it…

not one moment of the entire

77

years

of

it

was ever about

the

writing

or

the

   doing...

it was

 always…

in

all

  ways…

solely

about the

   being...

about the

experience

itself…

Sweet Surrender…

I

am

not

of

this world

but simply

in

it

and

oh

how much more

I enjoy my experiences

from this

new

position

the trick

however

is

to

stay

awake

and not permit myself

to

be

lulled back into

the world’s way of

   seeing…

not allow myself to be

lulled

asleep

   again

by the

sensuous

glamour

of

the

   flesh

and

return

to

the

living

of

this

life

as if the

dream

we are

jointly

dreaming

is

   reality…

New Year…New Life…New Way of Being…

I spent so many years of my life

turned outward

looking to the world for a way out of the

misery

of

existence…

searching outside of

Self

for the answers…

      for the solutions to life’s dilemmas…

   another job…

   in the classroom…

   out of the classroom…

   to the corporate world…

 no!

the non-profits!

back and forth up and down round and round

until finally

battered

beaten

bruised

   knocked down…but not out…

by stage 3 breast cancer

   I gave up…

   gave in…

surrendered

to

WHATEVER IT IS

THAT

CAUSED ME INTO

BEING

   in the first place…

sunset 1 4 16 004

  and since then…

IT and i

   have been caught up in a loving embrace…

totally and completely

   AT-ONE…

 

i have relinquished the lead

and now follow that

   Inner Directive…

   right out of the box of the past…

into a new year

a new life

   a new way of being

Happy 2016 to one and all!

Rainy Days…

as I sit here at my window altar

gazing out at the river

watching the raindrops fall

I become aware of my role as

“Placeholder”

for

Divine Healing Energy

that moves

Backward and Forward

in

Time

healing the wounds of all the many

Bloodlines

that intersect within this

“Spacetime”

called

    “Toni Roberts…”

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!

Another Day Of River Gazing…

Hutchinson River & Wetlands; photo by Toni Roberts

   Don’t have to travel…

Moving this body from place to place

Dragging this

Me

From land to land

Seeking the wherewithal

With which to fill an

   Eternal yearning

My travels are here with

YOU

Who lifts me up

Making possible these

Daily Flights

To times and spaces unimaginable to my

Questing heart

Yea

My travels are right here with

YOU

   Beloved river

Winter Fires Of Transformation…

beloved river at winter

beloved river at winter

The cauldron boils

Below the icy grip

Of winterdeath…

Below endless patches of white

Fires surge…water boils…

Melting…dissolving…washing away

All that dares to block the rushing flow of power

Beneath the death mask of ice

What new worlds…new realities

Push…shove…struggle to breathe…

To be born from your depths?
