  1. Yes, my breath was taken, too. Your closing stanza especially… For me, your writing is often its most striking and its most powerful when you write like that. Direct, riddled with energy and meaning, these words were like an espresso shot right to the whole field of being… But the whole piece was lovely. Heading out for a swim…!

    Peace and Love

    1. Hi Michael,
      I had been drinking
      Chocolate Macadamia nut coffee…
      Thank you so much for sharing your impressions from my poem. How it spoke to you…
      Being spoken to directly brings so much clarity; and while even if the storm never really ends
      completely, there’s always some refuge in this “whole field of being” as you say. There’s powerful safety in the heart of us, in the voiceless voice of the center.
      Aloha, Ka

    The storm is over? Great!
    Beautiful, beautiful poem, Ka.
    The picture is stunning. Did you take it? I’ve never seen anything like it.

    1. Thank you, Mary..

      I don’t really know if the storm is fully over, but this poem I wrote told me to come on out, and to feel the light of the Leo sun. I can have courage, and so can we all, because there’s something here in us, to anchor us. There’s refuge.

      I didn’t take this picture. I first saw it in one of those email forwards about amazing orchids. Then when I wrote this poem, this image came to my mind as the one to go with the poem. I couldn’t find the original photographer. These are amazing orchids, right?! Orchids are fascinating…

  3. Such a powerful piece dear Ka.. Beautiful written..

    The storms have already abated for the battles have already been won..
    And as a lover of orchids this one is amazing..

    I still have the ripples playing on my earphones and each day that I wake, I also give thanks dear Ka..
    Sending love and Gratitude for all you share.
    Love Sue ❤

    1. Dear Sue,
      Your words this morning: they brightened my day. Yes, “the battles have already been won.” Isn’t it an amazing orchid? Orchids really are fascinating, aren’t they?! Thank you for your visit, for your words and kindness. Aloha, Ka
