The Core

There once was a waiting becoming being
dreaming of dancing in the starlight
feeling everything like a whisper before speech
a poignant intensity rooted in the center
eyes towards open door where once there was nothing

Than twas more than a whisper
word echoing in stranger halls
experiencing comfort like what was once familiar
knowledge surpassing dreams preparing for a future
beyond something smoother than silk that once was deemed something

Swimming fondly carving deeply
curling in waves that wear away the sand
with relentless caring

Flipping silently whipping quietly
pouring in waterfalls that press away the rock
with persistent loving

For now is a moment for flying
a deeper peace than thought imagined
a jubilant rise of pure excitement
made to wash through souls like a blast of wind through the mountains

Deeper than the heavens,
rooted in the stars,
made to pass through our being…
melts the core of hearts.

Journey's beginning...

A tender sound echoes through a tunnel
a reminder of mind's eye before he spoke
distant tatters flutter to the ground
and a weight of joyfulness
drifts down to the bottom of my being

glowing strong in the depths of firelight
dancing round the cave of rhythm's soul
singing starlight into night's sky
and awakening a dawn
dreamt before moments left in fear

casting round like a child at play
I see eyes glittering in the dark
watching waiting seeking solitude
promised to be surrendered at day's door
a past type warning, keeps eyes on faith
and binds my feet to summer's path
awaiting nightfall surrounded by lanterns
lit for resting in midnight's charm
I lie awake though drifting
towards peaceful silent sleep...

Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, that in thy celestial apparitions on the mount of Tepeyac, thou didst promise to show thy compassion and pity towards all who, loving and trusting thee, seek thy help and call upon thee in their necessities and afflictions.

Thou didst promise to hearken to our supplications, to dry our tears and to give us consolation and relief. Never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, either for the common welfare, or in personal anxieties, was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Mary, ever Virgin Mother of the True God! Though grieving under the weight of our sins, we come to prostrate ourselves in thy august presence, certain that thou wilt deign to fulfill thy merciful promises. We are full of hope that, standing beneath thy shadow and protection, nothing will trouble or afflict us, nor need we fear illness, or misfortune, or any other sorrow.

Thou hast decided to remain with us through thy admirable image, thou who art our Mother, our health and our life. Placing ourselves beneath thy maternal gaze and having recourse to thee in all our necessities we need do nothing more. O Holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. (Here mention your petition.)

Five Hail gratitude for the four apparitions to Juan Diego and the one to Juan Bernardino.

For love, for vocation, for children, for Misa Azteca… for all the beauty in the world!!!!
