Her Seashell (monochrome) 

She sat holding a seashell, a woven basket above her head, her hair flowing in ribbons, one of the tresses tickling that little spot behind her ear. .

Her eyelids gently closed, she sits alone, in quiet contemplation, journeying through the Universe that is inside of her, solitude echoing off the walls around

Each day, she would sit under the ancient oak in the meadow, listening to her seashell . . sometimes she could hear the wind gently roaring off the ocean

Leaves drifted down, and little bits of fruit began to fall into her basket, and as the days passed by, she noticed that both her spirit and the basket were fuller, sometimes to the brim

At sunrise, and on nights when the moon was shining, she would bathe in the light

Such was this blessed feeling, she wanted to share these gifts with the world, making it a little more beautiful, nourishing the spirit, adding a touch of magic to the surroundings

And how deeply she longed to share this life’s journey with her true love, once a girl, now a woman . . she has held her heart all along, keeping it safe and tucked away in her chest pocket, as she walks amongst flowers and fireflies this evening, on the way to the great oak

If you listen closely, you could hear the river steadily flowing forth from her, and a great joy emanating from her heart’s center, hence the peaceful little smile that often graces her lips

She Comes, Hearts Rise

Hearts floating through the night

Find a resting place in dreams of mine

In through my window they swirl

Effervescent ballet, all the colors of imagination

Bubbling inside, one tickles my nose

The purest of hearts, she alights every smile

Like a candle  from the dawn of time

Slow and steady, burns the eternal flame

In her presence, demons scatter

Vow never to return, as true love and grace conquer the night
