The Cicada buzz mounts to a vibratory fury and descends swift, as I watch the mist settle upon the summer fields. Bull thistle has gone to seed among the barn; white flurries dance, softly, upon the electric aether, before the approaching storm. I wander a lush and timeless countryside, where feathery mimosa trees blossom in their… Continue reading A Summer’s Moment ~

A Child of the Shadows Dwells between Two Places; In the ‘Age of Man’ and ‘Beyond the Veil’
This child is born, unto a time, where Angels cast their light upon the path that must be taken. During the winter solstice, snow drifts softly like cinders from the heavens; melting upon the songs of the Dark-eyed Junco and Nuthatch; that carry the secrets of the forest, upon their moonlit wings. This child of… Continue reading A Child of the Shadows Dwells between Two Places; In the ‘Age of Man’ and ‘Beyond the Veil’
We are like Secrets Unfolding unto the Light
She always collected flowers in the forest for her potions, in late afternoon~ Wild plants, with burning hues that glow in the dusty hollow, where the wingless live and have been silent for so long. I see the wild things fly around her like moths attracted to flame. I watched her from a hidden place… Continue reading We are like Secrets Unfolding unto the Light
The Lost Town in Marrowbone Forest

We would pass through the desolate,… Continue reading The Lost Town in Marrowbone Forest
The Dance in the Doorway in Feather Bed Hollow
11:11 PM, every night was known as the 137th moment. The entire town knew to offer up one special thought from something that had happened that day. We would focus upon the thought secretly, holding it with deep intention and blessing.
As we aged, all children became very skilled and powerful at being ‘Dream Seers’, for the good of all.

Bone Dust August
“I will never forget this particular August; it crept upon us like a veiled shadow on the perimeter of the sun’s last rays. The summer felt toilsome and arcane. It is as if I had been holding my breath, silently; afraid I would not hear the story that was written for me. It seemed like… Continue reading Bone Dust August
The Watcher in Winter ~
I can feel his power as a Watcher, all those hours in time, to reach beyond the looking glass; to find me…to move me; beyond my dreams. He speaks to me; his voice resonating like waves upon a mighty storm at sea. “My name resides in a place before your time was set. I am… Continue reading The Watcher in Winter ~
