Petition for Presence


be here

with me


Signed:  Your guardian angels. The light at any time of day. The full moon in all its glory. Your soul-cat. Vegetable soup simmering on the stove. The doe and the fawn. Your muse. The energy that uses your being as a channel. Your dream worlds. The white-blossomed plum tree and jasmine in full bloom. The red-tailed hawk. Your heart friends. The nurturing earth. Your newest first draft. The beach at sunset or at any hour. The smell of that bush outside that reminds you of elementary school. Ideas to help anyone. The color turquoise. Poems of hope. Orange slices. Your mother, who has loved you longest of all. The starfish, mussels and sea anemones in tide pools. Banana and blackberry pancakes served with laughter by your children. The hare with a lump on his side who comes to your front lawn every afternoon. Ripe figs. Your husband washing the dishes – a rarity. The ring-necked snake you just met, charcoal on top with a bright red underbelly. Your great grandmother, reaching out to you through her diary. The rain hitting the roof as you go to sleep. Green hills on a country walk. Loved disguised. Your intuition. The spirit of our Creator in every form.

A Vision of Healing


I float on a gentle sea,

legs and arms spread like a starfish,

lulled by waves that gently rock me.


As I gaze up into benevolent clouds,

to the sound of angelic chimes,

a radiant beam lowers into my awaiting heart.


It fills me with love, peace,

and perfect being, my body a vessel

for the delivery of loving care to the world.


Brilliance blazes from my center through

palms, feet, root, and crown, streaming over sea

and land, alighting on all in its wake.


On the other side of the globe, it merges

like ocean waves, sprays out into a light-filled

mist, sprinkling down on every fragment

of our beloved earth and extended family.


All are loved.  All are offered healing.

All are held in infinite hands.
