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

The new book is finished and will soon be published!

Earlier today I completed the second draft of Echo LaVeaux’s Book of the Moon. The book is due a third reread and edit. My hope is that it will be up on Kindle by the end of the week and no later than Halloween day.

The book is slim but filled with poetry, reflections, meditations, and ideas for intention setting during each phase of the Moon. It was created as a way to share my impressions of the Moon during the course of her lifecycle. My hope is that it touches you and inspires you to grow closer to our cosmic sister.

Velvet is still available for FREE on KindleUnlimited. Please grab a copy and – if you have already read the book – please leave your impressions on it by writing a review. If you do, I would be most grateful.

Thank you for supporting me in my writing endeavors.

Peace and all good things from my heart to yours.

What a fitting honor to a hero of science.

The Laniakea Supercluster

Mind-blowing science. Mind-blowing. This is where we actually live, and this is what humans have been able to decipher about our cosmic home.

Just stunning.

Diving deep – a poem

Swimming in the sea of space
In the stars I find my place

Clouds of stardust carry me
Further out into the sea

Diving deep I reach the place
Of the very deepest space

And as I glimpse the edge of time
The only face I see is mine

Look up, or rather, look out

The universe surrounds us.

We forget sometimes that we are finite creatures on a tiny speck of a planet, hurtling around an average star on the far-flung arm of a spiral galaxy.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Too beautiful not to share

Imagine looking up at night and seeing this. Just gorgeous.

Our beautiful mother

Look at how she holds us, protects us, and gives us life.

Look at how beautiful she is, floating in the vast expanse of space.

Look and see how fragile she is

Look and see how significant we are, to be able to see this image and realize just who and what we are.

Earthlings.  Gaia’s children.

Remember this always.

Live lightly and love large.
