“A beautiful sunset that was mistaken for a dawn.” Claude Debussy.
I am always thankful for the beauty that nature unfolds, changing as it does from moment to moment. I take great pleasure in saying farewell to the passing of each day, as each reflection presents a new picture upon the canvas of life. Nature is certainly the greatest artist indeed! 🙂 ❤
Into the Night
As darkening peachy clouds mourn their day’s goodbye,
and Venus our ‘evening star’ shines her light into the Sky,
as the slowly rising moon bathes us in soft luminescence, we sigh,
and watch her move slowly, way, way, up high,
as we surrender silently to the day that has passed us by,
and go boldly into the night, aye!

How often do we dismiss the ‘little things’, especially if they are common? In our busy lives, we often forget to ‘stop and to smell the flowers’. It’s a shame, because there is so much intricate and delicate beauty in the smallest life, and this vulnerability deserves respect!
I went for a walk along a local creek, and found a shady spot to listen to bird and insect choruses. It was here, that I watched this butterfly dance and feed upon the flowers. It was such simple delight! 🙂 ❤
This is an old poem that I want to share with you! It is the experience I had just after exchanging vows with my beloved. All of nature joined in to share our joy, and for one hour or so, I swam with the dolphins and heard the most beautiful music.
Looking out towards the ocean from the crest in the dune where I stand, I see an expanse of water that continues as far as the horizon. Where the water meets the sand, waves break, producing foaming froth, as the sea sparkles her brilliance at me. From the froth I visualise Botticelli’s, Birth of Venus as she rides on her shell towards me.
I walk a little further until I reach the beach and sit in quiet contemplation, marvelling many of nature’s secrets, until an urge draws me into the whispering sea…
I splash, I bathe, I run, I skip, I swirl, I swim, I am embraced. I feel like a child wrapped in the arm s of a loving Mother, nurtured and loved we unite as one. She sings to me, she clothes me, I am the seed within her liquid womb.
Small colourful fish swim with me, kissing my body ever so gently, and lead me to an oasis of dolphins dreaming. Two streams of dolphins unite to create future magic. I become part of their dreaming and recall the unfolding of nature’s celestial tunes within the cathedral of my heart. Such ecstasy and beauty fill me, as I ride the rippling diamond sea upon the dolphins’ breath.
The heavens open sprinkling the earth as waves caress my body and land me upon the shore. Standing upright a rainbow bridge joins a golden setting sun and a rising silvery moon.

Hover Fly magic
Hoverfly, hoverfly, what do you taste?
You taste sweet nectar from the tangelo tree.
Drink it up, lap it up, gorge on it if you must,
And eat all the pollen before it turns to dust.
Your little adventure may be a feast to you,
Yet without it, they’d be no future for the tangelo tree or you.

Sun’s twilight reflections,
cast spells and inflections,
deep within meditations stare….

I’ve been trying to capture the image of one of these beautiful birds for such a long time, almost as long as my memory serves me. They are quite rare and to catch the fleeting aqua/blue as they fly past is quite extraordinary. It is only the male fairy wrens that have the bright blue aqua plumage, and only when they are breeding. When they are not breeding, they take on the brown colours of the female wren, although parading a blue/purple tail. Males are usually found with females, as they are socially monogamous. The females brown plumage support a blue tail and they have red feathers around the eyes.
AUSTRALIAN RESEARCHERS HAVE DISCOVERED that crafty fairy-wrens can understand and respond to the danger calls of other birds, suggesting that they have an advanced level of awareness about the world around them. For more information about this, please read this article at Australian Geographic.
p.s. Most images of superb fairy wrens have been enhanced to a more cyan/blue colour, yet their plumage in reality is closer to the photograph that I have taken above. I hope you enjoy his image! I most certainly do… :).
To live life with a compassionate and loving heart, to see all people, animals and life as brothers and sisters, to share with kindness and to remove all fear of death, knowing that it is only a transition. These are the keys to our redemption. We are a dream, part of the greater dream, and our consciousness moves through time…
I think all we need is 50.01% of the population with the power to say ‘no’ to governments, corporations, magnates and media greed and deception, for a change of consciousness to occur on this planet! It’s this thought that keeps me sane. Let’s be the very best we can be, and build a better dream together! 🙂 <3.
I sit here in wonder at the immensity of it all!
As a mere spec in the universal mind
I have a purpose,
Ever so small my part,
However, I have a purpose,
And it is this purpose that gives my life meaning.
For without it I would shrivel up and die.
