in the far reaches of creation,
I sail the Cosmic seas
as it swings past Jupiter,
frolics among Saturn’s rings,
and discovers Titan’s thick blue haze,
I relish life’s encounters
as they arise within.
Each one brightens me,
and all of creation as well.
Now, the One draws me back.
It tugs at my third eye
and whispers in my ear:
I am no throw-away probe
destined to wander the Universe
Such a thing does not exist.
All returns to its origin—
Like a child
back from summer camp
running into her father’s arms,
I sprint homeward,
into the great love
that I am.

Love it and you✨?
Thank you, Kelley. Right back at you! <3
The vastness of the spiritual journey, mirrored in the expanse of the physical universe, can seem impossibly overwhelming. Your words of wisdom and hope comparing the Inner Sprint Home to a child returning from summer camp to the loving embrace of a parent ignite tender joy within my heart. Your words strengthen and inspire me to run a few more steps today. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I’m so glad, Stephani. I will run a few more steps with you. We are definitely on a stupendous journey. Thank you for journeying with me.
Precious Lesley, Beautiful and inspiring as always. Thank you!
Thank you, Lynn.
There was so much visualization of our journey back home, and the LOVE That carries us there. I have always felt when looking at the stars and planets that I am reconnecting to my true home. It takes me to a highly spiritual place. Beautiful poem, Lesley. Your words inspire me. ?
That’s interesting, Monica. I see what you mean…when we look into space, we are seeing the origins of our physical universe, and thus of ourselves. Lovely contemplation!
Lesley this is quite fantastic and really seems to tread the breath of utterness …. Masterful!!
You are so poetic, Liz. I love what you wrote. To tread the breath of utterness, wow. I aspire to that! Thank you.
I want to frolic among Saturn’s rings. So beautiful.
Wow, what an awesome photo of the macrosom you shared from NASA, along with your channeling of you being a probe (point of view) or, as we know,a soul traveling amongst the stars,planets, galaxies, dark matter and so much more that constitutes the,”Cosmic Seas.” What a blessing that we are not destined to travel outward from our source for eternity but that we do feel and begin to center our attention upon that pull from the creator, calling us home. I have missed following your blog, your writing/channeling is a blessing i must not forget, thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you, Michael. I know how much you appreciate outer space. You post some lovely space images on Facebook. I’m happy this resonated with you.
As the asteroid draws close to our earth, I am drawn to think and feel about this planet on which we walk. Your poem was so parallel to what is really happening. There is a gentle feeling of peace and expansion wrapped into each word and thought. So lovely, Lesley.
