It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

Three Oranges

Abstract photo, driving in the car through autumn rain
I had a dream so strange
Three oranges rotting beneath my bed
Each bulged unnaturally
The blue-green of oxidized copper edged
Clearly painful seams
As one by one they began to split
Tiny winged creatures emerged
To dance and dance around my head
I had a dream so strange
Three oranges rotting beneath my bed

linking to my poet friends @:

I really did have this dream. I find sometimes it is best to allow mysteries to remain whole without interpretation; dream as art, like a poem, painting or photograph.

If it feels right to you, join me in chanting a healing prayer by clicking the link below (or say a prayer of your own) for my friend Nisa Etta bat Sara Faga v/Melech, she will be undergoing brain surgery starting at 8am est today. Include other beloveds in need of healing as you sing along, listen, pray. I have a list that is growing; I suppose this is the way of things as we age. I hold each precious being in my heart with loving awareness.
Please God, please heal her.

    I know God is ever faithful.

    dear one

  11. So in love with the mysteries!! This is a beautiful photo, and the poetic way you've presented your dream - all fitting together, one reinforcing the other...

    I am late for Nisa's surgery, but am sending prayers for her healing. My computer is so sluggish today, and keeps freezing, but I'm going to try to chant with the video later, too.
    Love and healing to all facing these great challenges. ♥ K

  12. Our prayers are with your friend.
    Lovely little dream!

  13. That rotting fruit can be hazardous..haha..great verse.

  14. I have dreams like that. I agree on how you present this totally. Best wishes for your friend, and all in need of healing tonight.

  15. Interesting little certainly has the feel of one. That strange touch of the arabesque and the unreal...

    And all the best to your friend - may her surgery be without complication, her recovery swift and sound.

  16. Flower burst forth in bearing the fruits... each of the fruits has the seeds of the tree... sometimes our subconsciousness plays a part in bringing us the divinity... may you be blessed....

    ॐ नमः शिवाय
    Om Namah Shivaya

  17. Thoughts of healing, love and light for your dear friend, Laura. She is lucky to have your light on her side. I too am prone to strange's when they come true that really sends me round the bend!

  18. The dream...and the image...are each pure in their poetry.
    The soundcard on my computer needs replacing so I cannot hear the chant with my physical ears...

    how lovely though that my heart knows the healing chants to send out into the unified field.

    I will move through my days and carry Metta... singing ...

    May you be at peace, may your heart remain open, may you awaken to the light of your own true nature, may you be healed, may you be a source of healing for all beings...

    Metta to us we each continue our healing and joining with one another.

  19. Hope you are not taking too strong drugs... they make us dream of dwarfs and things alike.
    Long time not see!


  20. Hope I did not offend you, my dear friend. I just can envision what you are going through, just that.
    Please never apologise for not visiting - I feel honored just that you post and I can read YOU- when I find the time!
    Thanks for your quick response!

  21. I had you and your friend in my heart as I listened to the peaceful prayer song, Laura.
