So I had a dream a while ago…

While rifling through a stack of papers the other day, I ran across a poem I’d forgotten I’d written.

A few years ago I awoke from a truly magical dream that I had to capture on paper. It spilled out through my fingers as a poem. The dream sparked a novella called “Beyond the Blue” that I’ve been working on as I have the time.

I hope to have this story completed and published in 2019. For now, the following poem is an expression of the sensuous, delicious dream that inspired a book. 

I hope you like the imagery. Thank you for reading.

Enjoy.

The Living and The Eternal

I stand on a sandy beach

Surrounded by revelers, strangers

Congregating on a magic shoreline

The haze of distant firelight

Covers me in misty madness

A man in Hawaiian shirt arrives

Blows smoke toward the waves

And greets me with a smile

Taking my by the elbow, he motions

Toward a rock behind me

A mountain of granite, a wall of stone

We walk on soft sand, our feet

Padding silent as the cosmic strain

Plays itself out across the expanse

And there he sits, mysterious and still

A being from beyond the veil

He waits for me behind the boulder

Sitting beside an eternal flame

The fire of life, the fire of heartbeat

Orange tongues lap the night air

Sparks flying high to touch the heaven

That sits just above my world

Glimmering planets chill the moon

His eyes capture me, in the deepest

Pools of ocean green, I dive

He carries starry visions

In an old fedora filled with

Wonder, of joyful glittery expanses

And brilliant cosmic landscapes

His arms wrap around the heaven

He inhabits, he smiles

Tipping his hat in my direction

He pours this universal garden

Into the crevices of my barren, little world

In a sky heavy with celestial fruit

Planets dangle soft above my head

Ripe for the picking, stars like glitter

Sparkling against black velvet

A purple horizon pushes up

Mountains line the frontier

Between earth and space, he looks up

Above my head, a planet spins, swirling

An orange mist envelops us

Shrouding us in a Saturnian glow

As the two fish meet the bull

Venus dipping into Neptune’s blue waters

Swirling hands in azure depths

Kissing Poseidon’s body, merging energies

Through the glance from one eye

To another, the fullness of love between

The living and the eternal

Third Quarter Moon, A Poem

Half Moon at midnight, a sentinel shines

In deepest night, watching those who sleep

Enchanting dreamers with beams of light

Sprinkled like dew upon slumbering eyes

And filling dreams with magical things

The Proof is In.

The proof for the print copy of my new book, Echo LaVeaux’s Book of the Moon, arrived in today’s mail. It turned out a lot nicer than I thought it would.

Once I proofread this copy, I’ll have it set to publish by Monday. My goal was to have this available on or by Halloween. Grateful to think I may be able to accomplish this by that day.

As the moon is entering her Dark phase, may you find solace in the deep night and joy in  Samhain celebrations.

Thank you for your support of my work.

Black Moon Rising

Dateline – Friday, September 30, 2016: Black Moon Rising 

We are about to experience a very rare lunar phenomenon…a Black Moon. Simply stated, the Black Moon is a second New Moon in a calendar month. Just like the Blue Moon, a second Full Moon in a month, the Black Moon comes to us as an extra day of oomph.

Everyone has their own interpretation of the Moon phases and how to use them in their personal lives. As this is the first Black Moon we’ve had in awhile, I am choosing to use the energy of this Moon in a special way.

On Friday evening, after the Sun has set, I plan to go outside and sit under the dark sky. My goal for the Black Moon is to set some intentions and use the power of the second September New Moon to help manifest the dreams I would like to see come to pass.

My intention setting rituals are very basic. Some tools I plan to use in my meditation are as follows: (more…)

The Magic of Thought

In the past I have shared ideas and insights about the power of thinking and how you can think yourself into a situation of your choosing.

Barring any outside influences that are a true hinder to your realizing a dream, everything that you need to succeed in any area of your life resides deep within yourself.

It all starts with a thought. (more…)

Watching Good Things Unfold

Have you ever been at a point in your life where something truly wonderful happens to you, totally unexpected, and shortly thereafter things seem to start falling fast into place…moving you in a new and unexpected direction? (more…)

Velvet: An Excerpt From Chapter One

From the new novel Velvet:

“The stockroom’s fluorescent bulbs burned dim in varying shades of green, casting an eerie glow in the cavernous room. Shipping boxes full of new goodies sat on the desk next to my computer.

It was always fun to see what Electra ordered for the shop. It was extra fun to be the first one to handle the new merchandise.

A little box grabbed my attention. I reached for it and set it on the counter away from the others. It was a heavy little thing. I grabbed a box cutter and sliced the tape open with a hiss. In moments my hands were full of gemstones. There were loads of them. No wonder the little box weighed so much.

I pulled the crystals out and checked them against the manifest. We had run out of rose quartz hearts last week so Electra ordered several dozen. Here they were.

There were big pink hearts to be worn as a pendant, medium sized pink hearts to put in a pocket, and best of all there were the little pink hearts with tiny red velvet bags in which to carry them.

I put the box on a shelf next to a tray of tourmaline chunks.

There must be love in the air, I thought. Why the run on romance stones?

It was then I remembered that Halloween was one day away. Witchy people know Halloween as a powerful day for making magick, and witchy people are our best customers.”

The Spiritual Life

Finally, a meme that spells out exactly how I view my personal spirituality.

Love the sparkles. May we have many sparkles, “tons of them,” in our lives every single day.
