Her Visitation



I meandered … purposeless; disjointed …
Completely aware; senses awake and functioning …
My pace knowing no dictates; heeding only fleeting impulse …
Free to stop, linger with any interest … or hurry past any suggestion.

Then, unbidden, came that tiny butterfly …
Light, delicate, unimposing, yet insistent …
Not resting on my smallest finger, but brushing it,
with powder-like softness …
She urged me along … in a direction, and at a pace, of her choosing.

Willingly, I fell in step with her chosen tempo …
Thoughtlessly, I joined in her unrevealed agenda …
Allowing her to free me of burdensome considerations …
I gladly joined her in a journey without definition.

Such is this visitation from my Darling from afar …
This is the joy of her effect on my Being …
And I celebrate, silently, and gratefully, her loving intervention …
Too wonderful, and precious, to be reduced to language.

This posting is beautiful. It touches my heart. Sad but comforting at the same time

Lovely, John-Michael. You have such a gift with words!

As I began the second chapter of a lovely little volume ("Ocean Sea"m by Alessandro Baricco), I was aware of the Powers and Influences that touched Silvia (my adopted daughter in Italy ... who sent the book to me, subsequent to one of our precious Skype visits.)

I understood where her Spirit is ... through her offering of this book, that presents a unique and distinct Place of emotional and perceptual being. I then found myself being guided and influenced by her ... through these writings that expressed her Soul.

The Moment was so lovely that I was compelled to attempt to express it.

I am touched and gladdened that You, Dear Anonymous Friend, join with me in the Moment.

Lovingly ...

I truly hope that You, my Dear Jim, will translate what I share here, regarding the effects of singularly special individuals on my Being ... to the distinctly profound and cherished effect that You, my SulDog Friend, have.

I am very grateful for and do enjoy your encouragements. Thank you!

I love You, Sir ...

John-Michael said...

Enchanted by your look of deep inner contemplation (in your lovely new image), I pause to savor a still, quiet smile ... and embrace the love that You, Precious Laura, send my way. I thank You for your sweet Presence.

Lovingly ...

how precious a thing to be able to connect so deeply across such distance. thank yo ufor sharing the fruits of that :)

John-Michael said...

There can never, my Darling Lime, be any distance between Hearts in agreement or Spirits in accord. All, that is of the eternal Nature of our core, supersedes the limitations of the physical.

I don't try to explain it ... I just celebrate it! [smile]

I love You, Dear One ...

Suza said...

You fell in step with her, and now I have the privilege of falling in step with you both. I am enjoying that path.

And thank you for your words - not only because of what they reveal, but because of the reverend care with which you lay each of them on the page.

John-Michael said...

You, my Dearest Suza, have touched on something that means a great deal to me. Every element of what I offer here ... not only the words, but the placement of and rhythm of those words on the page ... I reflect on and carefully consider each time that I share some bit with my Precious Friends and Readers.

I thank You for permitting your Self to notice and respond to my genuine care for what I always hope will become a comfortable and easy Gift to your Being.

I do love You ...
