Each Night

Each night

he
comes
to my
window
unannounced,

~

watching
me
from
a
distance

through
starry
eyes.

~

Each night

in
all
his
splendor

~

cloaked
in
glowing
shades
of

dark
mystery,

~

I
sight
him
swaying

to
and
fro

masterfully
in the
evening
wind.

~

Each night

he
whispers
to
me;

deep
enchanting
words

I
feel,

yet
cannot
hear

~

for
his
language
is
unspoken,

and

his
charms,

of
another
world.

~

Each night

he

takes
my
breath

and

lifts
my
mortal
heart,

~

enveloping
me
fully

in
the
sphere
of

his
luminous
presence.

~

And

~

Each night,

before
he
goes,

he
kisses
me;

~

delivering
me
safely

~

to
slumber

~

where

~

I
know

~

now,

~

I
can

fly.

Españoles Luna

This night
she
slept

upon
a
dream

~

painted
circles

round
her

head;

~

She
floated
through

blue
emerald

skies

~

glowing
tones

of

gold
and
red;

~

And
from
the
depths

of

her
elusive
dream,

she
heard

a

luminous
tune;

~

As

the
stars

performed

an
aria

~

called,

~

Waiting

on

a

Spanish
Moon.

This post was inspired by my dear blog friend,  and very gifted artist, Benjamin Prewitt.

After admiring  several of Benjamin’s gallery paintings at    Gallery | Expressions of my life – An evolution of art  for some time, I spoke to him about possibly acquiring one to own.  Benjamin graciously offered to  paint something unique, especially with me in mind, and queried me only about what color palate I might enjoy.  I gave him full creative license after that.  The above masterpiece is now complete, and on its way to my home where I will treasure it always.

I can only express my utmost appreciation for all the heart and soul that Benjamin put into this magnificent work of art, and am thrilled to share it with everyone here.  He named the  piece, “Waiting On A Spanish Moon” ~ and began the project the day my daughter left for Spain.

I encourage everyone to visit Benjamin’s blog, Expressions of my life – An evolution of art. | My journey through life as an artist, father, and person with young onset Parkinsons and read his artist’s statement at: Artists Statement-Evolution 

He is a wonderful brave person, facing his own recent, and intense health challenge…
a lovely soul, and a “fellow warrior of light.”

So Much Love
to All ~

For This Moment

Just
for
this
moment

~

our
eyes
lock

~

and
we
feel
peace;

~

We
promise
silently

~

to
be
still
together,

~

enveloped
in the
arms
of
nature;

~

 To
behold

~

the
gentle
beauty

~

that
is
you

~

that
is
me;

~

The
world
gets
quiet:

~

a
breath

~

a
gaze,

~

and
then

~

you
are
gone;

~

leaving
me

~

to
wonder

~

if
our
meeting

~

was
merely

~

a
dream.

My Mother’s Light

~

Just as the magnificent sun shines high in the sky,
my Mother’s light illuminates the heart of each
soul who is so blessed to know her smile,
her kindness, her radiance…her Love.
Happy Birthday Mom;
I Love you Always!
Robyn Lee

The Mother
~Kahlil Gibran

The most beautiful word on the lips of mankind is the word “Mother,”
and the most beautiful call is the call of “My mother.”
It is a word full of hope and love, a sweet and kind word
coming from the depths of the heart.
The mother is everything– she is our
consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery,
and our strength in weakness.
She is the source of love, mercy,
sympathy,and forgiveness….

Everything in nature bespeaks the mother.
The sun is the mother of earth and gives it its nourishment of heart;
it never leaves the universe at night until it has put the earth to sleep
to the song of the sea and the hymn of birds and brooks.
And this earth is the mother of trees and flowers.
It produces them, nurses them, and weans them.
The trees and flowers become kind mothers
of 
their great fruits and seeds.
And the mother,
the prototype of all existence,
is the eternal spirit,
full of beauty and love.


Clarity

Ascend blue and white
Transcend illusion of strife
Where all reflects light

Emerging

And just like the
Water Lily

Are you not simply
Waiting?
~

Waiting
For

That one perfect
Moment

When
You feel ready

To
Emerge
~

Fully
~

Vibrantly
~

 Into the
Luminous
Space
~

Into the
Light
~~

Where
You

Shine

Calming Fear

pressed
like
a pancake
flat on
my back

help me
find
my arms
my legs
my breath

help me
feel
the warmth
see beyond
the fire

help me
float
between the
blankets of fear

Special thanks to fellow-blogger and friend, Meryl, who wrote this emotional poem for her own post last week entitled, HelpI was touched by her heartfelt words, and thought they would make an excellent companion for my feature image today. We are excited to share this collaboration, and hope you enjoy. Please visit Meryl’s site at Recovery Thru My Lens to view her photo, and read her own personal narrative, Help « Recovery Thru My Lens reflective of her post…sentiments many of us can empathize with.

Much Love ~ Robyn Lee


Permanence

“There is a coherence in things,
a stability; something is immune from change
and shines out…in the face of the flowing, the fleeting, the spectral,
 like a ruby. ”

~Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse


Light Sedation

Blurred vision of fire
Melting my center with its breath
Sedating the pain away
