The Greatest Gift

The Greatest Gift-poem: Gorgeous reflection of orange tree in water with the sun setting

Dear enchanting Home
Of my diaphanous Heart
May you thrive in Love
As Love is Life’s greatest Art

May this day be one
Of delicate reflection
As we take a brief hiatus
And contemplate our direction

May we consider
Our amazing destiny
While we pause and give thanks
For every bird for every tree

For each tiny grain
Of the ocean’s far-reaching sand
For every intricate insect
In its niche in every land

May we each heed the call
To awaken from our sleep
To return to balance our Home
We’ve been entrusted to keep

For a gift is a kindness
Even if the Giver is unseen
And LIFE is the greatest gift
Whether one is pauper or queen

Won’t you share with me this moment
As the week goes rushing by
To stop in awe-struck gratitude
For the gift of you and I.

Metta,
Blythe Ayne

My Heart

Grand Canyon-US dept of the Interior

My Heart is as wide
As the Grand Canyon
When I say “I Love”
I’ve only begun

As Love is a Force
Beyond all others
Where strangers become
Sisters and Brothers

My Heart is as deep
As the Grand Canyon
Plunged into Love
Like deep rivers run

For Love is a Spirit
An eternal Power
In morning’s sunrise
Love’s colors flower

My Heart is as cratered
As the Grand Canyon
Here is a chamber
For everyone

Come my friend
Into my Heart’s Grand Canyon
You’ll be Loved forever
My dear companion.

Metta,
Blythe Ayne

Itty-Bitty Kitty Teaches How to Fly

Flying kitten- shared by Marie Gabriel

If you really want to fly
It’s very easy to do
You think about a birdy
And remember how she flew

Then go to an open field
With your favorite kind of flower
And breathe in their sweet smell
Packed with Life Force power

Next you start to run
Bursting with joy and glee
And soon you’ll start to fly
Just like you see me

Maybe you don’t fathom
The point to learning to fly
But it’s something truly wonderful
And here’s the reason why

When you can clearly picture
Yourself leaving the ground
You’ll believe in all your powers
The lesson is quite profound

But even more exciting
In my flying lessons for you
Is that you can “leave the ground”
In anything you do

You are so amazing
You have power to change the world
Only believe in yourself while imagining
Your wonderful wings unfurled!
                                  Itty-Bitty Kitty’s Wisdom 
                              As shared with Blythe Ayne

An Angel’s Visit

Angel Unawares-6-6-14What if an Angel appeared
Upon your path today
In the midst of your work and your hurry
What would you have to say?

Imagine with me if you will
What this might be like
To see with ordinary vision
An Angel glowing in lightning strike

Would you desire to converse
With this Being from Heaven’s realm
Or would you be stricken silent
By glory overwhelmed?

Trust me my Beloved Friend
In your every breath Angels abide
They lean over you with Love and Care
They are always at your side

There is never a grief nor a trouble
But that Angels are supporting you
If you believe in your Angels
Their presence will come through

You have nothing to lose to call, ”Angels!”
Whenever life’s woes get you down
Your Angels are meant to attend you
As in spirit you wear a crown

How amazing is your own Light
That to an Angel shines like a star
Your Angels are close by you
For them there’s no such thing as far

So be comforted my Friend to know
If you can’t see their realm so near
You are cherished by your Angels
In your Heart may you hold them dear.

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.

Blythe Ayne
