O Muses, O high genius, aid me now! O memory that engraved the things I saw, Here shall your worth be manifest to all!

EACH OF US


beyond the fray
the heart beats
in simple song
like a melody
for humanity

Comment by Luna Arjuna on January 11, 2021 at 7:56pm

Love your hands! Love them.

Raise them up and kiss them…

Love your neck; put a hand on it, grace it, stroke it and hold it up… And all your inside parts...

and the beat and beating heart...

Love your heart. For this is the prize.

And, If a star shall fall
Down upon the ground
Why, I shall pick her up
For, she longed to be found
I shall hold her forever
Forever in my heart
Knowing that we shall never
Ever again, be apart

Like the trees and the leaves,
our souls are photosynthetic
though not to physical light
but oh they are porous
to music, poetry, beauty
in fact they need this kind
of square meals to survive.
If you want your life
to bear sweet fruit
you must feed it
this.

Heartbreak can be

an exciting proposition.

Wonders come

when you sing

from that wound.

PRAIRIE PLAY

along a winter day

snowflakes giggle

the prairie dog fun

fluffs of white stuff

bright amused sun

O God, you have prepared in peace the path I must follow today.
Help me to walk on that path.
If I speak, remove lies from my lips.
If I am hungry, take away from me all complaints.
If I have plenty, destroy pride in me.

May I go through the day, calling on you, you,
O Lord, who know no other Lord.
