Dear Ones,

In the below poem, the images are important to the presentation of the poem, rather than being simply decorative.  I term it an ‘Image Poem’ as it takes its inspiration from images … in this case, photographs of a Santa Paula, California scene that lay before me after an odd experience that befell me that same day in Ojai, California.

This variant on the traditional Image Poem is a little like the old-fashioned children’s picture-book with rhyme (although in this case the poem describes a mystic vision of Creation and of the immortal Soul …

was but a whisper in the wind,
I was the wind.

Before those stones

where Light was not
I brought the Light.
I brought the days.

And now,
In this haze of Dark and Light
I bring the Light again
to humankind
That we may know
the Spirit on the water,
the wind behind Creation.

And that we may bring
that glory back to Earth
that once was hers

Stonegate

This is the gate between the worlds.
This is the newest knowing …
An adventure, even for God!

Something new …
something undreamed of.

From this day forth
there shall be a door …
A door in the stone wall
that was once
that which prevented us from knowing.

Stonegate

Even the sylphs of the air rejoice today.
