carry the Lamp of Love…

candle light
 
 
 
slowly and steadily, with an open and steadfast heart,
carry the Lamp of Love.
 
even while chaos storms around you,
ground yourself in your breath – your true home.
touch nature. be still and listen.
 
then in your peace, your kindness, and your compassion
you will shine bright as a beacon.
 
and the world will wonder why it ever chose
to do anything other than
love love love.

Still Life…

Still Life

 

“Life is precious and fleeting. Pay attention.”
~ Seido Ray Ronei

 

“Still Life”

this moment to breathe
when all soon will fade away
feel the sun and wind

this moment to love
when all soon will fade away
keep open, in haste

this moment to live
when all soon will fade away
death, there is no end

moment by moment
this moment is all there is
do not, do not waste!
