Cloaked in Beauty

I sit quietlyIMG_1447
Drinking in life.

Bent wood and
Shapely curve of trunk
Entwined in a mystery
Of verdant splendor.

I sit nestled neatly
In between long
Green and brown
Fingers pointing
Upwards with flourish
And grace.

Stillness all around
In this magickal


I hear the
Whispering of
Voices anchored in
The ground beneath.

I feel the strength of life
Pulsing through
Bark and limb and
Leafy Green.

IMG_1409I breathe in deeply

And exhale the memory of grove and magick.

I am cloaked
In Beauty.

The Gates of
My Soul opening
In welcoming embrace
Of each step taken
Amidst the Wisdom
Of the Trees.


These pictures were taken at Ridley Creek State Park at the Mansion. My husband and I went there yesterday and he wanted to show me the Park Office area. I had no idea that this magickal space was there as well and now know where I will go for a healthy dose of Mystical Trees, natural energy and serenity.


The Fairy Orb


Light filtered
Through tree
And leaf and branch.

Shining down on
Green carpeted
Floor of nature’s
Verdant home.

I walked the trail
Alert to all the
Wonder that shone
Brightly around.

I walked the trail
And flickering light
Caught my gaze.

Just up ahead
Just up ahead.

Slowly I approached
Not wanting to disturb
Or make noise.

Sounds all around
Suddenly ceased
As silence hung
Heavy in beautifully
Lit grass.

Slowly I approached
Excitement and energy
Dancing like fluttering
Butterfly wings in
Stomach and chest.

Light filled the orb
Tenderly and carefully
Woven from spider’s
Silky thread.

I moved a little closer
To peer deep inside.

Light and Fae were
Moving and energy
Flowed of magick’s
Sweet enchantment.

Another place
Another time
Deep breath and
Time no longer
Stood still.

Heavy breathing
And sweat pouring
From bodies in
Motion as runners
Passed by.
