I love to write in the very early morning before dawn....
I feel that at this time creativity is so heightened: aligned and attuned with a greater Light and Love.
I have a blog with over 700 poems that I have placed there from my early morning writing as I celebrate the Beloved. I think once we connect on a deeper level with God as a Beloved the mystic in us has to take over, because God is more than we could ever know: always creating and relating according to our open hearts and surrendered wills.
Sometimes I feel that my poems leave a trail like the seasons: they flutter like leaves in autumn and return to the earth so that they then may bloom in the spring of the hearts that encounter them.
We are all connected. I feel that deeply. The Beloved contains us All, and each of us is called to our own heart's way of expressing this.
So I naturally have deep respect for each person's path and their heart guidance and pray for its realization in each life.
The Thrill of Creating
In the silence of morning before dawn
feeling the energy of the stream
as we continue to let beauty
have its way with us
flowing out to the world in such joyful ways
catching that elusive beauty
that flashes into view
along the edges of vision
not looking directly at it
but letting it slip by in the dream
or in the streaming silence
between waking and sleeping
or in the enchantment of music
flowing and dancing
in and out of awareness
like the face and form and color
appearing on a canvas
or on the screen in digital play
in the words that seem to arise
out of the whiteness
and purity of the page
or out of the dark skies of the mystic night
whispering to the open heart
kissing the open hand
that holds the brush or the pen
the dear ones are there
unseen and outside of time
waiting for us to be touched
by the one caressing and kissing
coming to life in our soul.
Naomi Stone: "I am a contemplative, a mystic, a pilgrim, a seeker, a woman deeply in love with the God hidden in all of us, in all of His Creation, who comes shining out when we least expect it and takes my breath away and breathes me with His sublime Presence in everything. I have two sons and loved raising them. I was a teacher for years, taught at the university level, did some community work, helped start a hospice in our area, and worked with patients and families for years. I am consoled by Nature and the natural world and have embraced the life of a spiritual hermit."
