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.

A Sense of Wonder by Camilla Downs

Hot Pink Flower Rose 2016

“A sense of wonder
Within is awakened
As I admire your beauty.

Imparting your beauty
To you, and mine to me.

To live with wonder
To live with beauty
To live with knowing

This is our divine gift
To one another. -2016 Camilla Downs – Author, Lessons from Nature

Show Me With Pure Eyes by Camilla Downs

“Great Spirit,
With Your
Grace and guidance
Show me with pure eyes
Let me hear with clarity.

Guide me in the knowing
Of the Way I am
To share Divine Love.

Gently open my heart
To reveal the fire of
Passion that burns within.

For every day is a chance
To begin again,
A chance to live and love.”
– 2016 Camilla Downs – Author, Lessons from Nature

Eye to Eye by Camilla Downs

Eye of Tree Alamo with Poem March 2017

Eye to Eye
by Camilla Downs

“Your limbs higher than
Can be conceived.
Evokes within,
A primal urge
to raise my limbs
as yours,
while feelings of knowing
brew and bubble deep
within the very depths of my soul.

With limbs raised,
Eyes gently closed,
The lips are parted
and out flows the sound
and feeling of the all knowing
all one, divine love.

Standing next to you,
Eye to eye,
Standing next to you,
We feel our oneness.” ~2017, Lessons from Nature

Walk with Lillian Vintage Lake 3.9.17

March 10 2017:

It’s been an intense five weeks. Five weeks of swimming into the depths of my own darkness and shadows. What a wild and crazy ride. The curtain has lifted and the stage is set for the shift ….

From our walk this afternoon. I am so grateful for these two kids who have held space for me. And for always being incredibly patient with my picture taking.

Reflection of Thomas in Water - Walk Vintage Lake 3.10.17

Beautiful sun …. double sun
Reflection
Playing with the moon and tree branches
Throwing mud rucks into the puddle
Shadow fun

This was so good and yummy for all three of us. To be asked, “Can we stay out longer?” ….. sweet music to the soul.

A Lost Art to We by Camilla Downs

March 11 2017:

Pink Fuzzy Tree Bloom 2017

“The one supporting the many,
The many supporting the one,
This interdependent relationship you share
A lost art to we.

It’s clear to see,
The disconnect coming forth,
When the wild is taken from you,
Mirrored in the forests
Of the society of we.

Oh Mother, what a sweet
And beautiful teacher you Be.”
