Out of the Valley of the West, upon their snow-white steeds,
and into ancient legends passed bright men with shining deeds.
Their heralds, made of cloth-of-gold trailed bright banners
in the seaward breeze that spoke of hoary years of old
and a history of times unseen.

Bright Kings of aeons past were they,
who ruled beyond the Western Sea and slew great daemons,
and lived with fey in years of unknown centuries.
Their look was wise, their carriage proud,
their armour held a starry sheen,
their aged trumpets echoed loud as they rode in from the Sea.

Through hanging forests, deep and cold upon a winding,
unknown trailthey rode- noble, proud and bold.
Dark were the shadows upon their mail;
bright were their eyes and deep their brows,
their hair was gold, their faces pale-
they passed through grove and under boughout of the West,
where dreamships sail.

As for my "Full Bloom..." I am absorbing the Light upon this cold, blowing, wintery day in the North. I am manifesting the "Law of Attraction" with all positive vibes enabling me to stay one step ahead of Life turning upside down (which only I have the power of choosing to happen... or NOT!).

Can you feel me laughing?... because I am!

Robert Shapiro said...

There comes a time doesn't there, when we must rally around friends and give them the kind of support we have to offer as well as the support that they need. Such a time is here now.

I have spoken to Eileen not too long ago over at feelingsaloud.blogspot.com and she has been on a long road trip. She's pretty tuckered out and I feel she could use a little encouragement from blogging friends.

I wonder if you would mind going over to her site and just leaving a few encouraging words. I feel this would be very helpful and that she would really appreciate it.

Consider it - okay? Thanks a lot. Goodlife.

Kuan Gung said...

Thank you Robert I will....

Kuan Gung said...

Warm Greetings kalpana!
