Stardust and Moonbeams by Camilla Downs

San Antonio Tree with Stardust and Moonbeams Poem 2016

Stardust and Moonbeams

At times when I look at you,
I’m instantly taken to the
Heart of knowing
That we are friends.
You and I, oh yes,
Friends for an eternity.
Friends, lovers, siblings,
Parents, cousins, and
Everything in between.
We are all of these
And stardust and
Moonbeams too. Oh yes.
An eternity, oh yes.

Grow With Me by Camilla Downs

Sun Through Trees Fall 2016 Enhanced

Grow With Me

Go, Hurry, Hurry
Go, Hurry, Hurry
This is the mantra
You help me to release.

Stop, Slow, Slow
Stop, Slow, Slow
This is the mantra
You share with me.

Be quiet. Be still.
Listen. Be in silence.
Communicate without words.
Communicate from the divine heart.

Watch me. Learn with me.
Lean on me.
Ask of me assistance.
Grow with me.
We have much to learn
from one another.

Let us be the
Connected ones
We came here to BE.
Let us share divine love
In our own unique ways.

Notice Nature by Camilla Downs

Thomas Walking Bartley Ranch Summer 2016“Notice”

Notice nature.
Feel and smell the air.
Study the clouds and the trees.
Listen to the birds.
How many different kinds of songs can you hear?
What kinds of birds are they?
Injoy a sunset.
Notice and smell freshly bloomed flowers.
Notice and study new buds on a tree.
Notice the smell of newly fallen leaves.
Study the moon, stars, and clouds.
Walk barefoot in the grass, dirt, or sand.
Watch the waves in the ocean,
Or the ripples in a lake,
Or the rushing water of a river.
Notice the glimmer of freshen fallen snow.
Watch the sunlight dance and sparkle on the water.
Study all types of trees.
Get up close. Touch them.
Go for a walk for no reason other than to commune with nature.”

Walking is Dancing by Camilla Downs

Vintage Lake Walk Sunshine Trail Tree Summer 2016

Walking is Dancing

“Walking is spiritual.
Walking is magical.
Walking is miraculous.
Walking is praying.
Walking is meditation.
Walking awakens one from the deep sleep of separation.
Walking is dancing with the oneness of all that is.”

Drift Into the Knowing by Camilla Downs

Footbridge and Clouds with Poem April 2017

Drift Into the Knowing

As I am in your presence
I feel the weight
Of this body drift
Into the clouds.
My soul melds with
All that we are,
And drifts into the knowing
Of all that is, ever was
And ever will be.
When I’m with you,
The illusion of time
And solidity are no more.
Oh. Glory be.
We are we. We are one.
We are an eternity of
One love.

Within is awakened
As I admire your beauty.

Imparting your beauty
To you, and mine to me.

To live with wonder
