COLORS by Jasmine Kang

We live in a world that is like art painted by the Light in so many colors…

There is beauty in every moment, every day, every season, every color of life. It is a portrait to remember. Remember it and you will know how beautiful life really is.

Beauty lies right there in front of us always! I see it in every face and form that is before me. It makes me stop and think for a moment how much, really, is missed…

There is beauty and infiniteness in one. Sometimes I feel that what appears before me intermingles with the infiniteness of that very moment. I long to live every moment with this colorful vision. For isn’t it beautiful?

Colors

A beautiful day! A beautiful day!
The spirit sings in me. 
Where do you start?
What words are there to say? 

This is the way.
O, this is the way!
A beautiful day! 
A beautiful day! 

There is something to behold in every color.
How beautiful it is to be alive!
Here we are in a life just as beautiful.
Life before us is all so alive. 

The blue of the sky,
The coral from the reefs,
The pearls from the sea,
The dreams I behold and the spirit in me. 

Dancing, dancing, dancing away 
The shadow of your image 
Vanishes away
Into the colors of the dusk and far away. 

The green of spring,
A summer to remember,
The golden brown of autumn
and memories of last winter. 

Every color has its splendor 
Like the ray of light from the sun at day
And the moonlight above at night 
With stars that dance endlessly lighting up the skies. 

The blue of the sky,
The coral from the reefs,
The pearls from the sea,
The dreams I behold and the spirit in me. 

There is something to behold in every color.
How beautiful it is to be alive!
Here we are in a life just as beautiful.
Life before us is all so alive. 

A beautiful day! A beautiful day!
The spirit sings in me. 
Where do you start?
What words are there to say? 

This is the way.
O, this is the way!
A beautiful day!
A beautiful day!

THE JOURNEY by Mary Oliver

Today we honor Mary Oliver (1936-2019) and all the words she left behind. May they inspire you on your journey! 

Excerpt from Mary Oliver’s book Long Life: Essays and Other Writings:

"Poets must read and study...but, also, they must learn to tilt and whisper, shout, or dance, each in his or her own way, or we might just as well copy the old books. But, no, that would never do, for always the new self swimming around in the old world feels itself uniquely verbal. And that is just the point: how the world, moist and bountiful, calls to each of us to make a new and serious response. That's the big question, the one the world throws at you every morning. 'Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?'"



The Journey
By Mary Oliver 
One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice-- though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles. "Mend my life!" each voice cried. But y…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

OFFERING ON AN AUTUMN DAY by Nancy Carlson

I was inspired by the Fall Equinox to write this poem...  
There is this feeling of an offering of sorts...of my whole being: body, mind, soul, senses and emotions. It happens inwardly, yet is also reflected outwardly: an expression of all those parts of me.
It is this quiet time within where I wait, the whole of me, for this Love to come. What better reason, then, to write this poem, as it comes through me!

Offering on an Autumn Day
Red and orange leaves blowing in the wind. Grey skies, the bluish color of my eyes. Fall arrives the season of my birth, at home in the cool Autumn air. Wrapped in fine cloth, hues of red, orange blue and brown. Soft pale skin and golden hair.
It is the time to go back in. Larimar-like blue eyes that see so much beyond the seen. Like a tiger in the grass, waiting...
Grounded in this time of season changed. Comfortable with a cup of tea, book in han
