Good-bye 2014

Goodby 2014-fireworks-mrwallpaper.comGood-bye Twenty-Fourteen
What a lovely journey it’s been
I’ve had a few adventures
I’ve made new and wonderful friends

As the last moments
Of your presence fades from sight
Let me send with you my gratitude
Before you disappear into the night

For how precious is the Gift of Time
One might even say
It is the only Gift of Life
Granted day by day

In every fleeting moment
You may find your Heart’s Desire
The reason for Living is Loving
Love sets the Soul afire

The thrill of Life is to discover
Love’s amazing eternal power
By being present in the moment
And in every mysterious hour

Will you pause with me a while
To thank Twenty-Fourteen
For all its gifts and revelations
That a year ago could not be foreseen!

Blythe Ayne — December 31, 2014

A Wednesday Prayer

A small thought
For the middle of your week
May Love and Kindness
Be what you seek.

May Compassion and Joy
Move throughout the land
May it pass from Hand to Heart
And from Heart to Hand.

May thoughts and deeds
Be of Peace and Care
May that come to pass
For everyone, everywhere.

Remember this Promise
And claim it with me
Metta–Unconditional Love–
Will set us all Free!

The Patterns of Life

Rain drops on leaf

When rain falls
Upon the leaf
Each drop enlarges
In strong relief

The patterns of life
That are etched there
The love, the pain
The joy, the care

Do not avoid the storm
And the rain
But study, instead
The path of each vein

To treasure the beauty
In each drop of rain
That flowers in wisdom
From each moment of pain

To see where you’re going
From where you’ve been
You can make paths
That are joyous again.

A Prayer of Love for Animals

Now is the perfect moment
To love all the creatures dear
As we never know how much longer
They will be with us here

All of our animal friends
Give our lives sweet meaning
Whether chasing a ball in the yard
Or their lovely feathers preening

Whether far, far away
In some exotic, distant land
Or right in your back yard
Under your loving hand

I thank you darling Nature
For all the gifts you’ve bestowed
For the stunning array of creatures
From jungle heat to arctic cold

For all the moments of joy
My own little friends provide
When the evening shades fall
Sitting right here by my side.

The Moons

The moons will lead me to you
As I sail across the seas
Adrift, yet filled with wonder
Led by evocative sea breeze

What ocean came between us
As we sailed on waters clear
What darkness cleft our journey
When we held each other dear?

Oh moons, splendid moons
Aligned near and far in the sky
I pray you, guide my ship
To unite my Love and I

Oh gorgeous tempest ocean
Oh tall ship on fiery seas
Oh dual moons soaring above
Eternal God-wrought frieze

You may think I’m but a tiny creature
Small and powerless in your net
But I have vast Power with Love
And my Dream will triumph yet

As I bring together Forces
That first set the worlds in motion
I will reach my destination
Love’s shore across the ocean.

House of Tree

Come into the forest
Take a walk with me
I’d like you to be my guest
At my little House of Tree

You and I will have
The most enchanting time
When you visit my darling home
Made of rock and wood and rhyme

I will serve you my phenomenal
Leaf and magic pie
All ingredients of the forest
From elf-moss earth to fairy sky

I mix it all together
With incantations of peace and love
While the dryads add their healing
From roots below and twigs above

You will never want to leave
My charming House of Tree
You will find it beyond delightful
To enjoy leaf pie and drink moss tea

And I? I will be so happy
If your dreams in my forest come true
Because my fondest wish is always
That LOVE surrounds all you be and do

So, look up into the sky
Wherever you may be
And wish with all your heart
To visit my House of Tree

In a twinkling you’ll be here
Before you can blink your eyes
I’m now gathering the ingredients
For Autumn magic leaf pies.

Kitty Luau

I’m having a summer party
‘Cause I can’t let summer go
It’s a kitty luau
For cool cats in the know

You’re invited to my luau
Please wear flowers and shades
Bring your joie de vivre
And come just as evening fades

We’ll dance and eat and party
We’ll sing and caterwaul
In short, we’ll have a blast
At our endless summer ball

Cool cats, and doggies too
Are welcome at my home
Paying homage to summer
Under the sky’s starry dome.
