#MagicalPower

Sorceress of Golden Dragon

 

It was that magical hour

The powerful most time

Man called the ‘witching hour’

If they only knew

The power to be found

Opening their senses to this

The most incredible of times

Sweet eldritch chimes

With unhurried step she glided forth

Her back to the house

As she moved to the north

Towards the grove

Deep in the woods

The Sacred grove

The magical circle

Where time could be suspended

As well as all man’s rules of should

Replaced instead by power filled could

Within the circle

Ground laid bare

Sisters one and all

Gathered there once more

To join in joyous splendour

No man could perforce engender

To create a celebration new

Which called for self-surrender

Opening all to wider mysteries

Of power most sublime

Believed lost for all time

Yet living still in hearts and minds

Of every member of her kind

#MagicalPower

colourful bejewelled dragons

A grove surrounded

By Birch and Elder

Hawthorn and Rowan

Magical all

Whose power had shown true

To those who had known

The power available to the few

Remaining of the dragon kind

Of such a one was she

Who knew the magic of the tree

To be called upon in knowledge

Power unforgotten by the few

Once more to be set free

As the moment of high power drew near

No potions or spells

Neither a descent into hell

Just power gathering within herself

Of knowledge long learned

By those who yet yearned

To recapture the ways of old

No longer freely told

Into herself she turned her bright gaze

Her mind’s eye once more fiercely ablaze

With the glow of potent magic

Of power most true

Building a great vortex anew

Preparing herself to step through

 ∼

The corner once called

The elements true

Spirits and elementals they knew

The fierce glow from her grew

Her favourite hue

Enveloped them all in the circle she drew

Til it appeared to all

She was all but consumed

By the fires she wielded inside

For her essence distilled

By the power she willed

He form to transform once more

 ∼

Sharpening her focus

With each beat of her heart

Joy held inside but a part

The power of her mind

She bent to her will

Til in her place stood a glorious beast

A dragon of old

Sparkling once more like beaten gold

Larger than all life

A picture of might and awe

With a primal cry of command

Beat her wings on demand

Followed by her brethren below

Dragons of colour profound

Metallic hues did abound

As they launched away from the land

Some to return with the dawn

Return to the land

To the call of the Sacred Grove

To gather yet more of this new treasure trove

Of priceless magical beats

Of every metallic hue imagined

From times long ago

To fly in the night once more

Releasing their magic on this new shore.

#travellingthroughtime

Travelling Through Time

Amidst the circle of ancient stones

She stood without thought

Feeling a calling deep in her bones

The dangers unknown are naught

Drawn forward, her mind caught

She steps onwards

Her destiny sought

Into a whirlwind she fought

Energies unknown of no import

To keep her mind focused

On the one who waited

To who she is fated

Her love, her life, all she sought

Stumbling suddenly forward

Strong arms encircled her fragile form

Heart to heart, beat to beat, life returned to norm

A new life of dangers yet to be met

A war set to start before the moon set

Riding forth with haste

Hoof beats heard, in close chase

Lost in the foggy wreaths of swift pace

To reach the safety of the manse

Once safely inside

A marriage, to continue the romance.

#Time

∼ 

Travelling

Immortality

Moving

Eternally

Through the smallest of increments

Of measured moments

As the shimmering incandescence

Settled into an everlasting

And evanescent form

Of an elemental being

Scales of iridescent gold and blue

Glittering in the velvety dark

The Gold Dragon’s beautiful form

Filling the silent cavern

With the hair tingling effects of magic

∼ 

As she rippled briefly

Changing her form within the beat of a human heart

When the eye watering brilliance faded

In the mighty dragons stead

There stood an beautiful ephemeral creature

Hair of deepest moonless black

Hanging down below her waist in ebony waves

Translucent skin glowing with a golden otherworldly glow

Her eyes shone brightly like an azure sapphire

This beautiful magical creature

Twice blessed with beauty

A glittering dragon in female form

A dark-haired beauty in human form

Able to wander this land again

Searching……

Searching for salvation for her kind

Travelling

Immortality

Moving

Eternally

#OldTimesGone

image from anguishedrepose.com

 

 

There are times aplenty when I was in doubt

Hardly a penny to my name nor food in my mouth

Nowhere to turn and no-one to ask

Help and understanding seemed long past

There were no tears left to fall

They had long since soaked into the soil

With nary a person to see nor care

Is it any wonder I now dare

To say the things I need to say

Whatever happens come what may

I no longer fear the heavy hand

Not the baton nor manacle laid on like a band

There is nothing left inside to hurt

All feeling left buried in the dirt

Like yesterday’s news or an old shirt

No-one to call me a late night flirt.

I walk the city streets alone

A shadow passing through a lighted cone

Never seen nor heard

Like yonder lovely sweet bird

The past is long since gone

Never knowing just what went wrong

Only knowing the stories and endless lies

Gathered over the corpse like a mountain of flies

Drawing every morsel from my body

Left to rot like a forgotten toddy

No more use since I’ve been bled dry

Been long gone by and by

Desiccated and gone

The only thing left an old rubber thong

Hard to see where I used to be

There’s a shadow there near yonder tree

Wearing a uniform, laughing and carefree

Who is that person standing there

So proud and tall

Not likely to fall

Only the person I used to be

Before I grew up and lost my carefree

Hollow eyed and hopeless

Stolen before its time

Like a counterfeit chime

All out of lime.

#TheMermaid

image from walldeskpaper.blogspot

 

Glittering shafts of sunlight

Flashed like sparkling diamonds

Amidst tall strands of seaweed

Colourful fish swam lazily amongst trailing plants

Zipping nervously away from strange shadows

Safely avoiding the gaping maws

Of the giant grouper

She sat quite still and watched the scene

Seemingly floating before her eyes

The peaceful way everything moved

From colourful fish to dainty seahorse

Brilliant coral and mesmerizing anemone

She was entranced by all around her

From the corner of her eye she saw a larger shape

As it drew closer she saw a beautiful face

Surrounded by hair the colour of sun drenched coral

With skin the colour of milk

Surprised but not alarmed

She watched the figure approach

To her bewilderment she saw

Stretching behind this beautiful woman

A long muscular tail

Just like those of the fishes she had admired

Curiousity kept her still

As this vision swam up to her

With eyes the colour of emeralds

And lips the colour of rubies

She heard a voice inside her mind

Softly speaking to her

“Oh why aren’t you with us Selene?

The sailors will be coming out quite soon

You know how much fun it is

To sing to them, and see their faces

As they almost run to move their  cumbersome boats?

In total surprise I looked around me

And in amazement I clearly saw

A long and muscular tail

Floating behind me as I lay on the rocks

Slowly lifting and falling to my unconscious design

I agreed to follow this vision

It seemed the thing to do

No words were spoken

At least no human words

She heard each and every thought I had

And all day long I swam and frolicked

With this group of colourful mermaids

Such fun I had as I could never remember before

Yet, quite suddenly I felt an enormous tugging

And I felt towed backwards by an unseen force

I saw my underwater wonderland flash past

I wondered if this thought was to be my last

When I found myself on the edge of the rock pool

Where I had lain down to peer into its depths

My face had fallen into the cool blue water

Bringing me back to myself once more

Had I dreamed this wonderful interlude

Of mermaids frolicking in emerald depths

Or was I indeed one of their kind

Just visiting the land for a time

I suppose I might find out

The next time I come visit my rock pool.

Blessings, Susan ♥

Magical Standing Stones
image from lavandallegra.blogspot.com    Magical Standing Stones
                                                           

~

Scudding clouds

Threw shadows across the lane

She knew not what could be hidden there

But down this lane she must travel

To reach the standing stones

~

If all went to the plans they made

Then she would meet her love

Just as the moon reached mid-heaven

And they would be together thereafter

~

Hopefully she prayed

The moon would have cleared the scudding clouds

And the lane would not seem darkly threatening

And unpleasant to her fevered imaginings

~

It was so strange

She had walked this lane by day and night’

For many a long year

And never before had simple shadows

Cause such anxiety in her heart to wonder what was afoot

~

Tendrils of low-lying fog crept silently across the lane

They seemed to appear from the shadows themselves

Reaching towards the warmth of her flesh

Thicker grew the tendrils of mist

As she hurried towards the lane’s end

~

And breathing a heartfelt sigh

She emerged onto the open tor

Towards the standing stones she hurried

Her love to meet her there anon

Yet silence fell strangely around her

As she stood within the stone circle

~

The moon was yet to reach mid-heaven

As she wandered round the circle

And as she heard a noise before her

She took a step forward and the spell was cast,

As she passed through one of the portal stones

With no sound, no light, no movement

She vanished from earthly sight

Transported to who knows when

And for how long we cannot know

~

But as the last chime of midnight

Rang clearly from the village green

Her love appeared over the hilltop

To search for her, calling her name softly

Yet never did she appear

Though he came each night thereafter

And tales still speak of him long centuries later

Wandering around the stones

As he calls her name searching for her still.

Life Change

image from genzoman.deviantart.com

“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.”   ― Anthon St. Maarten,

There is no guarantee what lies in store for us. If we are truly lucky we may have flashes of knowing, our intuition kicks in and we are sure we know what to do. We make choices based on our ‘gut instinct’ and everything seems to fall in our favour.  Life seems truly blessed. Our lives are all if not more than we hoped for. Yet there is always room for a “Life Change“.

I’m sure we’ve all felt we need a “Life Change” at some time or another. Some people might call it a ‘run of luck’ and thank their lucky stars that things are going well. By the same token others will say “it’s just a run of luck” when things are going badly and they hunker down until their luck should turn again. It’s simply a turn of phrase, taken whichever way is most suitable for the circumstances.

We are all given certain ‘gifts’ or talents which we bring with us when we are born. Sometimes we feel that people have charmed lives, and at others we feel they may have been dealt a bad hand. Yet each time someone has a run of bad luck, or are dealt a bad hand there is something they can do to alter it. They can have a “Life Change” at any time, even when times are good they could be better. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes we can change our life around. We have the ability to change how we think and act to make our lives into what we want them to be. This is the reason for self development.

Life Change

“Start with big dreams and make life worth living.”   ― Stephen Richards

 

.

Throughout the journey we call life we have the choice to be happy, sad, healthy, wealthy, grateful or envious and so much more. It may sound strange or even far fetched when we are sitting at the bottom, feeling defeated by circumstances, ill health or deserted by those we thought were friends. I know, I’ve been there. Yet it is possible to climb out of that black pit. We have a choice to make a “Life Change.” We may not be mega wealthy like Bill Gates, we may not be an Olympic athlete like Sally Pearson or a dancer like Patrick Swayze but we can be the best that we can possibly be. We can turn our lives into the dream we always believed and hoped possible. We can learn to spend wisely and grow our money, we can learn to be a good sport and enjoy our activity and we can learn to dance and feel the “wind beneath our wings.”  We have a choice to develop our gifts.

There are many people who teach meditation, relaxation, life coaches, business coaches, doctors to aid us in improving our health or managing it, natural therapies and so much more. We have to make a conscious choice to refuse the status quo and change things.  We need to decide that a “Life Change” is possible and we want it.

Yet it can be difficult to organise all these changes on our own. At times everyone could use a little guidance to get started, stay on track or be encouraged. My husband and I have been working towards getting a plan together, one which would help me to manage my own challenges by creating a “Life Change“. I needed to refocus myself, my energies and plan new dreams and goals to take into consideration my health and be able to adapt as I become healthier.

Life Change

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”    ― Albert Einstein

I’ve already started my “Life Change” program. It’s not all ” beer and skittles” or “sunshine and roses”. I still have bad days and need help picking myself up, but I’m hoping things are going to be much better very soon. It’s easier to see the light again if the dark clouds arrive and that’s a great help.

When I’m fighting a battle on a health front, when things don’t go to plan, when I wish things were different, it seems strange to be starting a self development ‘program’ and yet I felt that it has been the ideal time to start. If I can do this when things aren’t easy then I know I can make even more changes and kick more goals when life is better. So, I’m reaching for my stars. I wanted to share my excitement with you, my friends in cyberspace.  Perhaps I’ll need a hand to help me up if I slip, but I’m happy I have a path I can see clearly now.

“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you’ll move mountains.”    ― Dr. Seuss

May you kick all your goals each day. Together we can change the world.

Ciao, Susan x
