A dream within a dream, a star within a star and it is there where hearts fly.

The Silent Sounds

The Silent Sounds

I came
Upon the shore of silence
And I sat there
Still and hushed in her arms
Listening to the beauty of all things.

I listened
To rock giants
And little ones, moving rock
On rock
Day after day
Grinding and grinding
The ages away.

Flowers Growing


I listened
To the vigilant deer
Running through leaves and trees
Under the hunting moon,
But ever so watchful
As not to be noticed
By hungry ears.

I listened
To flowers growing,
Buttercups, sage and paintbrush
Stretching their blushing boughs,
To the sun kissed sky.

I listened
To the resonance of clouds,
Thunderclaps and lightning’s flash
Splashing land and
Scrapping sky away,
Hiding the sun
In their eyes.

scrapping away the sky


And the movement of it all
Seemed so beautiful to me,
As if the ancient world
Of my spirit Fathers
Was moved to spinning
And with greater
And greater force.

Twirling us
Towards the heart of sun
At the speed of sight,
But quiet as grass growing;
And I saw
The beauty of that too.

the sound of falling


Seeking all the joy
Of things remembered
And things forgot
As there I slept soft
In the arms of her,
In the arms of her silence
And the beauty of that
Became dear to me

And I feared nothing
As I feared the coming marrow,
The call of eagles,
The sound of falling.
Wanting to live
Forever
In her arms,
Innocent and warm

Far above the noise
Of this iniquitous world.

I galloped on my sickly horse,
Picked up at a fair one day.
Out there stood an old man,
Who took my coins as pay.
I got this horse with me,
In my green paddock it fed.
Transforming in seven days,
Awaking the life in dead.

One day there was a sad tale,
As princess deep in distress.
He vowed her would help her,
With his horse he did stress.
He galloped into her life,
Deep in the Valley of Flowers.
Pulling the Lady slowly,
Erupting all in showers.

Taking her in his arms,
He put her on his horse.
He galloped away with her,
With no show of remorse.
Where are you taking me,
Up to the Mountains high.
Far away from the enemies,
Into the Deep Blue Sky.

All transformed as he spoke.
The horse just came alive.
With exuberant energy,
It did its zest for life revive.
Its hair and mane turned to feathers,
Body transformed into bird.
Becoming a giant eagle,
In a manner none ever heard.

He whisked away from danger,
Into a Castle filled with love.
Transforming her to his Queen,
High in the Mountains Above.
For all that happened was they fell,
Off the cliff to the ravine below.
That transformed everything,
With a bright golden glow.

That is how the eagle formed,
Flying both to safety Above.
Into the Castle hidden far away,
But filled with utmost love.
It opened to the Valley of Flowers,
Where the Lady grew each soul.
Showing the twelve hidden peaks,
That hid the castle in whole.

Bringing in the protection,
With the armour of Life.
He transformed into the Angel,
As he knelt asking hand of Wife.
Who affirmed yes within tears,
Showing truth in valley of Love.
Uniting Earth and heaven,
Forever as One Above.

Together they built their kingdom,
Showing the peaceful dove.
With trees filled with olive leaves,
Bringing back the love.
As the princess transformed,
The Angel she became.
All of Creation bowed to life,
For they all knew her name.

Esmeralda they called her,
The Princess with fairy Love.
Who had the hidden castle,
Hidden in Mountains Above.
Pulling in the truest choice,
The Horse to an Eagle transformed.
With the magical allure of Life,
All of Creation with love transformed.

No more more wars and no more tears,
Creating beauty that all see.
Bringing in the flowers of Life,
As they watched on bended knee.
For she brought Stars, Moon, Sun,
With the Power of Love.
Showing the Keeper of Heavens,
Transformed horse into Eagle Above.

I enjoyed it all--but the most wonderful image was that of 'scraping away the sky.' Really lovely.
