Out of the world’s confusion
like a thorn filled briar,
we reach out to the heavens
our playthings set aside
for body, mind and heart
to follow the stars.
We travel by night
under deep space shining,
gaining our bearings
for the direction we take
to find our way onward
to the birthplace of innocence,
bringing our gifts
to the great light reborn.

    I’m losing connectivity, Don, as Parkinson’s creeps through my brain. I will continue to enjoy as best I can…

    Very beautiful, Don. And potent.

    Thank you Don, for capturing that internal journey so beautifully, dare I say, poetically! To articulate in this way brings soul and form into our feelings and thoughts, which is a gift and an ability you have. We journey on!

    Don — I join you joyfully in following the stars that emanate original currents of the heart’s pure innocence, amidst the fertile field in which great light can be ongoingly reborn within.

    Thank you Don. You have transmuted the story of the Magi into a spiritual journey of the soul, a journey to original innocence.
