One Wish

The Perfect Wish

If you were one wish away

from a just perfect day

What wish – would you wish

just for you.

~

My wish, you can see

Would most obvious be

I’d wish – that your wish

would come true.

*

May your wishes become dreams and your dreams … reality!

Street Music!

I love the countryside and feeling close to the earth, but I also enjoy the nature of city life. I used to have a studio loft in downtown Portland, Oregon. It was on Main street in the heart of the city.

The creative energy that can be found at night in the city can be awesome.  Frequently I’d leave my windows open to listen to late night city sounds. and sometimes, something magical could be heard.

Thank you for visiting,

On multicolored wings of splender…

… The Autumn Fairy arrived,

flying In just that very special way of Autumn fairies everywhere,

at first barely noticed so gentle and delicate her entrance.

She dipped and turned

rustling the plants and leaves,

encouraging others to fall, as is her nature.

She swept past with swirling winds,

and I heard the leaves giggling …

tickled by her playful breeze ,

winging her way through nature’s remaining summer beauty.

~

“Autumn”, the fairy’s wings a fluid motion of colours

blending and merging into glorious cacophony.

I sighed with wonder

so very many changing colors and patterns

 and then out of the far corner of my eye I saw her

… a vision of beauty passing thru

leaving the splendor of fallen leaves

and those following  in her wake.

~

A quickness, a warming gentleness

and then a newness, a crispness to the air,

“Autumn” the fairy departing

I hear the crunch of fallen leaves as I walk through.

There is a cooling crispness in the air

Ah so,

I now await the coming of the Winter fairy

I know she cannot be far behind.

The Sensual View of Things

The View from your eyes

 Sight, the most powerful tool in our Sensual toolbox. From the moment of wakening to the time you close your eyes at night, your eyes are acting like a video camera. While you use your sight to navigate and experience each day, everything you are seeing is sent to your brain for processing, interpreting and storage.

Seeing is a form of sensory reasoning. The complexity of this can take up to 30% of your brain power as compared to 8% for touch and 3 percent for hearing. So when it comes to the 5 senses, sight is the big boy. And this means when it comes to a sensual experience this is your visual chance to really shine.

The Minds Eye

And here’s another thing to ponder. Have you ever thought about how personal and individual is your view of things?

Imagine you are standing with 100 other people looking at the same thing at the same time. Your eyes are “seeing” things but referencing it according to the stored information from your mind. What you are seeing is unique to you.

And finally that which creative minded people engage in daily – the perspective of seeing from the “mind’s eye” (our ability to experience visual mental imagery – happening without our eyes actually seeing something).

Our brain is a busy little bee when it comes to our “mind’s eye” view of perception and how it trips over from reality into another more creative place inside our head. Scientists and philosophers have written volumes on this subject. The first to prove the thing, the second to understand it. I’m guessing at some point they’ll meet up! lol

What we need to know is the following: Sight allows for those with vision to see what is in front of their eyes. Our view is filled with a full spectrum of color that exist in all things during a shining sun, the shadows of day, the darkness of night, an entire universe of color. All these things waiting for us to witness with our eyes.

The Sensual perspective of anything being seen can become a masterpiece unfolding before us. Are you feeling what your seeing in the landscape of your life? What is the view from your eyes?

I’ve Seen

I’ve seen the wonders of the Universe

Unfolding in a vast arena of spectacular color,

I’ve viewed the turbulent tossing multicolored Nebulas

bursting into clouds of effervescent

billowing and foamy gases,

I’ve watched Stars being born and die

I’ve seen the far reaches of the Universe

blazing glorious and blinding

A sensual explosion of shades of color,

Unlimited and Passionately

Sensual,

All this have I seen and felt

from

my “mind’s eye”

I hope you enjoyed the view!
