Love Letter to Planet Earth

 

Let Us Live In Love Peace Paradise On Earth – Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

teaching the lesson
love heals
is a difficult task
for adults to absorb,
adults taught punishment
examples not tolerance
in early entire childhood
behavioural control upbringing

the stick the rod taught
harsh discipline might
is right not who is right

let us live in love peace
paradise on earth
does not light
overcome dispel darkness
love is light
waiting to come
into all lives
in all societies

open the heart
sow love
compassion
healing
into the world
break centuries
millennia cycles
of intolerance pain

inflicted

agony

let love rule the world
embrace the beauty of love

Tree Elders Dreaming

 I created this with Toolwiz and a Pixabay image. I dithered for ages with the images created in a Toolwiz overlay as the other images were much clearer and brighter. But I decided in the end that I liked the more blurred image here because it made me think of trees dreaming into the universe and invoking galactic healing for Planet Earth.

Earth’s Bounty

My husband brought home the two large brown seed pods after going for a walk this afternoon. He is planning to sprout them to add to our garden – all our gardens are populated by plants which he’s sprouted or taken cuttings from, as he has a real green thumb.

So I put the seeds together with another set of seed pods and some small stones along with a large one on Japanese art paper. I think they look good sitting there together.

A Blessing for Equilibrium

A Blessing for Equilibrium

Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
May the music of laughter break through your soul.

As the wind wants to make everything dance,
May your gravity be lightened by grace.

Like the freedom of the monastery bell,
May clarity of mind make your eyes smile.

As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become.

As silence smiles on the other side of what’s said,
May a sense of irony give you perspective.

As time remains free of all that it frames,
May fear or worry never put you in chains.

May your prayer of listening deepen enough
To hear in the distance the laughter of God.

~ John O’Donohue ~

Flying High

Still on the Standing Stones of Callenish, this image relates to the energies of Earth, Fire, Air and Water. I find I’m adding water more to artwork these days, in recognition of climate change and the rising power of the water element in Mother Nature.

Again I’m indebted to Dina, for her kind permission to use the images of the Standing Stones of Callenish in photos she took during a visit to the Orkneys. Her blog and messages from the wonderful Bookfayries can be found at: The World According to Dina. 

Time Lords of Callenish

A few posts back I posted an image I created from a photo of the Stones of Callenish on the Orkney Islands in north Scotland by The World According to Dina.

The photos Dina took are awesome and so sensitive to the energies of the stone circle, the best I’ve seen of this amazing creation.

The image above is created from another photo of the Stones of Callenish which Dina took, and this time I was reminded of their power and energy as Time Lords – they look for all the world like beings of stone holding the circle to stabilise energy currents flowing throughout this planet.
