tons and tons of sparkles
Did you know that whenever you feel love, you literally begin to glow? You probably did.
But did you know that the glowing is actually made up of zillions of minute sparkles? And that these sparkles receive as much energy as they create? And that because of this energy exchange you completely stop aging and look younger? Abundance is immediately drawn to you? Healing powers fill you? Muscles are strengthened, pounds are shed, and your vision improves? Lingering questions are answered? New friends are summoned? Old friends are poked? Problems are solved? And maple syrup tastes more maple-y?
All when you feel love.
the sky is varying shades
of pale baby blue
the water is like a silver mirror
the same rocks that glittered
like a million diamonds
are silent today
big dependable rocks
ready for Monday work week
still the same
just in a different mood
today the brilliant emerald moss
on those huge rocks suspended
in the metallic mercury
glow against the silver
I think of Ireland
my draw to visit
the Emerald Isle
on the other side of this pond
life is different
yet the same
the oyster boat trolls
a heron waits until
just the right moment
then takes off
flying so close to the water
on and on
until I lose him in the horizon
I feel like him
waiting for my moment
resting for the next phase of flight
and in the fullness of time
at just the right nudge
I will take that breath and
staying close to the water
my source of life
as the epic journey home
My heart knows for sure
my love story has
a very happy ending
Amy Lloyd (AL)
I am your image.
Your glory, your love,
your life, your grace
is folded up in me
a thousand times
and this, my life,
is your unfolding
like a rose.
Each day your beauty emerges,
each moment your light unfolds
I honor this mystery. I trust it.
I give thanks,
that even in ugly places
you unfold your beauty in me,
each breath one of the infinite
petals of God.
In the rose garden of God
I marvel at the variety.
I walk with gentle wonder.
I give thanks
that in each of us
you give yourself
to all of us.
I cannot tell you anything that you are not already capable of knowing yourself.
Nor can I give you anything that is not already at your fingertips.
You have all the answers within your own Being to all of the questions you or anyone else may ask.
Each of us has enormous capacity of Being.
So what is it that we want or need from each other?
Value; We have the capacity to value ourselves and in doing so we set our own value.
Companionship; We experience companionship with others to the capacity that we have companionship with ourselves.
How can I understand others, if I don’t understand myself?
You reflect to me what is already within my own awareness whether I am awake to it or not.
What most of us are looking for outside of ourselves is a reflection, a mirror of what lies within us so that we can gaze upon ourselves.
As I gaze upon myself in the reflection of you
I see the beauty that hides within me
In your grief I touch on the grief I hide inside
In your laughter, laughter is ignited within me
Your Joy radiates and pierces the Joy laden in me
So that we can be in Joy
Your Spirit Unites with Mine as we gaze at Beauty emanated by a flower
This must mean that Beauty enables us to see our harmony
A harmony so perfect that nothing can escape it
As I connect to the world outside of myself it reflects me to you and you to me
We are in concert with the great symphony of the Cosmos
Infinitely expressing itself
In those special tender moments when I touch something in me gazing at you
I can hear the masterpiece sweeping us away
I can see the Vision drawing us near
I can smell the fragrance of our essence
For You Are a Part of Me and I am a Part of You
Endless Reflections of the One in Us
Reflections of Me
