June Love

Lovely June, everything calm and in it's place,
resting quietly.

In the grey summer garden I shall find you   
 With day-break and the morning hills behind you.   
There will be rain-wet roses; stir of wings;   
And down the wood a thrush that wakes and sings.   
Not from the past you'll come, but from that deep
Where beauty murmurs to the soul asleep:   
And I shall know the sense of life re-born   
From dreams into the mystery of morn   
Where gloom and brightness meet. And standing there   
Till that calm song is done, at last we'll share
The league-spread, quiring symphonies that are   
Joy in the world, and peace, and dawn’s one star.

Idyll- by Siegfried Sassoon

Wishing you all an abundance of sunshine, good health,
safe travels and long warm summer days.

The mysterious pull to remember

June gently comes,
whispering thoughts 
to remember

The neoplasm

a neoplasm
 nestled in the
inside curve
my kidney
a grey toned screen shows,

 "lets wait" said he 
"and see if it 

                   Someone said,

 "The most frequent entryway to the sacred is through suffering and dissatisfaction. 
Honor the longing"

There,...there is the pull to remember.

Lovely June, you pulled me so sweetly
to the divine.
Stay with me gently lest I forget.

A routine exam causes me to ponder
a small lump.
will you stay with me small and mysterious
as a reminder of the work 
to be done,
will you quickly 
usher me from this world to the next.?...

for now..,
the privet blooms
 and releases her intoxicating
perfume into the June air,
and days lengthen and enchant.

Heavenly messengers. Call us to our wise and loving heart.

  Beauty calls to us,...
the voice of the beloved.

Hello June

Lifes little pleasures,
peonies in a jar.
