noel

Beyond the barren, desperate plains,
The Weary, Calling to Heaven from earth;
Countless generations Cry in pain,
Breathlessly Awaiting a Royal Birth.
Light and Liberty, Outward Reaching,
Through all the years of Tribulation;
Prophets, Wisdom Gently Speaking,
Foretell Celestial Jubilation.
Across the skies of Darkness, Reaching
Down from Heaven on Bending Wing;
Love Imbued with Harmony, Teaching,
As Vast Choirs of Angels, Triumphantly Sing.
“Lift up your eyes with Joy, not Fear,
For Blessed Love Draws Gently Near.”

Star

Unto those mortals, meek and lowly,
Watching o’er their flocks by night;
Heralding a Birth, Humble and Holy,
Love Shines forth in a New Star’s Light.
Amidst sheep and cattle, quietly Attending,
Laid to sleep within a manger there;
While Praises through the bleak night, Ascending,
Mark the poor and modest Gloriously Fair.
Finding the Child in Bethlehem’s stall,
Humble Shepherds Bow to an Infant King,
Where Heaven, Bending to Bless one and All,
Smiles, while Angels a Lullaby Sing.
God’s own Child sent to Lead and Heal,
God’s Love and Grace, In Flesh Made Real.

Angels

Holiday Hiatus

A_Cozy_Christmas_by_mchasesteely

Warmest Wishes of the Holiday Season, of Love and Grace, of Hope and Joy, of Peace and Blessed Tranquility be with You All. This Special time of year is my favourite, with all the glimmers and sparkles, the scents and sights and sighs and laughter; with all the Love we Share freely with one another. Yet it is also a very busy time of year, the rush and bustle of the holiday season can be somewhat overwhelming and can often steal our Joy, if we are not watchful. But the JOY that comes with the season of Good Cheer is Meant for us, it is Love’s Abiding Wish that we should be Joyful, so even though the days may be shorter and filled with a vast deal, Remember Always to Smile…for you are Loved. By the Love that Smiles down upon us from High Above…..and (perhaps less enigmatically or amazingly), by me !

So in order to ENJOY this Season of Mirth and Beauty, I shall be taking a brief hiatus. Not entire, to be sure, because words are never far from me, but for the most part, in order that I might not allow the hurry-hurry of the holiday to replace my Glee with Gloominess. I Shall be quieter than usual, and may not be round much or commenting often, and for that I apologize, but KNOW that my love Smiles to you and my Appreciation for All You Do is as boundless as the Glittering Heavens.

Blessings of JOY fill your Hearts! May Mirth and Good Cheer bubbly giddily inside you and may your Christmastide, Yuletide, Hanukkah, Years Long Night, or whatever you may Celebrate at this Festive Season of the year, but Truly JOYFUL, Blissfully binding you and yours together in Love.

With All my Best and Sweetest Wishes and Hopes,

~Morgan~

Tapestry – Sonnet 34

Tapestry

The Shape and Majesty of the Luminous Night,
Sings Splendid Vision to my Questing Sight,
Ever Calling to my Longing Gaze,
In Shifting Shadow and Spectral Haze,
While Diamonds Gleam from Distances Immense,
And my Fair Imagination is Drawn Hence,
To Tumble O’re Nebulae and Comet’s Tails,
To Float in Glimmering Silence as it Sails,
Throughout the Heaven’s Vast, Into my Mind,
Conspiring with Eloquence in Vivid Kind,
To Shake and Shimmer in Ebon Tapestry,
Where All Creation Dances in Glorious Soliloquy,
Until Time Itself Unravels, Until Eternity Unwinds,
Lifting from this Heathen Murk, Paradise, At Last, To Find.

Cheeky

Cheeky

I will be cheeky, there’s no denying it. I can no help it (she says with a rolling brogue) It’s in my nature to be particularly mischievous (now and again.) (or, more often than not, depending) (most of the time, really) (see what I mean!)

But it’s also in my nature to be pensive, to over-think things, and to live the life of a romanticist. I confess, I’m a sensualist; I love things, I don’t just like things. I am filled with passion and fire. I look at the clouds, I stare up at the stars (which I’m sure you’ve already figured out just reading my poetry) (so, somewhat irrelevant for me to bring it up again, really) (I’d hit delete, but it’s somehow easier to just keep rolling at this point). I’m sure you can relate on some level. After all, we’re all of a creative bent of mind here, to some extent at least, and as such, being in our right minds, we can appreciate the finer things without the burden of having to (necessarily) rationalize them (all the time).

Why should we, in point of fact? Why is it that we are taught to feel guilty about splashing through the cool puddle on a warm summer’s day? Why should we care if running with abandon through the gurgling stream or the wave’s fringe upon the shore results in spatters of mud or sand upon our trousers? How does it serve to feel compelled to rush to the dry cleaners after we take a flying leap into a pile of sweet smelling leaves? (you still do it, I know you do) After all, if the pleasure results in purgatory, is it really a pleasure?

Ok, I got way to deep there! I do apologize. Honourable Sorry! Yo, My Bad! Or what have you. This was supposed to be a giddy piece, not one that makes you scratch your head and puzzle until your puzzler is sore (like someone else I know) (or the Grinch, again, depending), although, admittedly, my whimsical posts do tend to degenerate into that sort of specific madness that results in a puzzled expression and a raised brow. We’ve been here before, haven’t we? Moving on…

I am, perchance, a “person” of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: Full of gibes, gambols, songs, and flashes of merriment that are wont to set the table on a roar (rather like Poor Yorick?) I am also, at times, far too much like Ophelia: a young maid (relatively speaking!) (not a word from the peanut gallery, thank you!) whose wits are as mortal as an old man’s life, which ultimately just leads us back to Yorick, so I suppose I’ll camp out here for a while. Nice cushy spot in the garden, after all!

Point? Actually, I do have one, but I dare say I made it already (missed it? I was a wee bit cheeky about it, (wink wink) do go back a bit… to paragraph 3, perhaps… Yep, there you go.) So at this stage of the game I’m really just blathering. I do enjoy a good natter, dontcha know! The com panel is jammed, Captain. Jar Jar Binks has gone off on a tangent, Obi Wan. There are clues lying about like sweets on Easter morning, Sherlock (or, if you prefer, like nicotine patches in 221B Baker St.)

Yes, I do tend to be a bit cheeky, now and again, but I know (or, at least I hope) you don’t mind.

Soft

In the Lush Shadows

As Twilight Falls

Whispers

Caress the Lavender Nighttide

When You Draw Near

Subtle

Expressions Lingering

Like the Kiss of the Moon

Gentle

As Velvet Midnight

Falling like a swoon

Soft

In the Shadows

Shorn

Shades of Light Drift on the Dawn
In a Tangled Web of Memory,
Where Ripples Touch what now is Gone
To Tantalize this Ache in me.

Crumbling Facade that once Stood Bright
With Colours Clear as Shimmering Morn,
Now Leak the Fading, Breaking Light,
Bleak and Cold as a Lamb first Shorn.

Love Asks Only

Love Asks Only

Love Asks Only to be Accepted.

Love Asks Only to be Received.

It Makes no Demands,

And Requires no Change.

Love Asks Only to be Gathered into the Heart

And Treasured.
