Happy Isles

Happy Isles

By Amba Gale

Your beloved Merced embraces you
in its arms,
singing
its happiness.

Just your name
brings back to hear
and thought
the delightful pleasure
of hearing your voice
laughing for the very first time

Just as your river flows
and dances,
gurgles, and prances,
around, above and under
Great Boulders that give you your voice,
like white horse mains
leaping, flying, cavorting
over the hills,

Just like that-
Like the bubbles and whirlpools,
white water falls and rushing speeding non-stop racing
my heart, too, races
my ears open to your sounds of singing
and all my senses awaken to your Voice.

Just being in your presence gives me joy.

I was very young when
I was brought to you
for the very first time.
My father and my mother
delighted in your laughter,
mingling with my own.

Today, your youth still
touches mine,
and younger I grow
just thinking of you.

Happy, happy isles
Singing in the sun.

Instead, they listen, deeply, and then they…

The Future that Brings You Alive

There is a straight line that only you know how to draw that takes you from here to there or, more precisely, from there to here, in a world of possibility. And, if you follow it you will be true to your own North Star. It will not fail you. No matter the turbulent and unprecedented circumstances of your life. For one thing, you will know that you are being guided. For another, you will know the Guidance is true. The Future, If you let it, will magnetize you into it. Do not let your mind or your considerations, whatever…
