Laura Star Rain

Sometimes I believe that there is an energy, or that there are some sort of threads in the universe that bring persons together in love even if for just moments. I wrote this poem for/about a woman within a fairly loose group of quite fine artists to which I belong, several years ago. She … her icon simply inspired the poem. We have never met. We were not even close. But circumstances made us close in a strange manner, but close none the less, perhaps as artists together. I never showed her this. Her Name is Laura mercer and she is on Facebook. We are connected and I am Liz Rice-Sosne on Facebook. I shall now for I have always felt that it WAS her. Initially I did this with all different sized fonts and letters dark and not so dark along with symbols. I cannot seem to do this here upon WP.

Laura Star Rain

She has dark moments …
She is one

… toying with her flames. Turning the knobs

This way and that … that way and this….off then on……………..


She is all about

color. She must have it.

It … fuels her.

Long flowing
Strokes of sensuous color … watery … rain from stars.

Snails in a galactic state of oceanity

Permutations of ??quarks?? born near

Water hamlets …

Badland flat rocks … for salamanders to dance upon.

Here is one of her whimsical and lovely paintings the sort of which inspired me.

Occupy Blogosphere – Thursday October 11, 2012

Sometimes all it takes is seeing the positivity of another to bring back to the surface of ones own soul his or her own positive side.

100 Thousand Poets for Change is an organization filled with positive energy that stretches around the world. Today it includes musicians.

I had lost this information due to a computer glitch and thus I had forgotten about the site. I am lucky enough to be connected to another poet here in my own town who is a part of 100 Thousand Poets for Change. Her blog moonbridgebooks is a blog filled with among other things helpful information for those who write. Her blog can be found here.

There is another blog that I have discovered that is filled with beauty and wisdom that I wish to pass along to anyone searching for either. The blog is called: GinGetz

As always many thanks to Amy at Soul Dipper for making the positive Thursday Occupy Blogosphere possible.

Occupy Blogosphere Thursday September 12th 2012 – Sometimes


When seeking knowledge and/or wisdom please remember that you have your own wisdom specific to you.  If that wisdom is not coming through, all you need to do is to move a millionth of a degree in how you observe things and that wisdom will come through to you.
This wisdom may well be given through another.  When you hear the words of that other speaking, you may hear a litany of wisdom, things you know to be inherently true … but it may feel too big for you.  Please understand that one of two things is happening.  One, all of that wisdom is meant for you and you are meant only to act upon pieces of it at one time.  Or, only pieces of it are meant for you.  You will know exactly what pieces are meant for you.  Those pieces that touch your heart are the pieces of wisdom upon which you are meant to act.  If you are having difficulty knowing simply ask the divine spirit “which pieces?”
The heart always knows.  The heart will always choose love for that is what the heart is made of and that is the focus and expression of the heart.  The heart knows where to go.  It knows no confusion.  The intellect is different.  It does know confusion partially because it deals in facts and there are so many facts out there.  So let me say to you that when seeking knowledge and wisdom … put aside the intellect when you listen and listen only with your heart … your heart will hear exactly what it is meant to hear.
It you are searching because you wish for change in your life, the change will come when you act upon the wisdom given to you.  This is because you have the power and now the knowledge to change.  All change is done through loving change within one’s own heart.
Thus when you are willing to change how you see things within your live (by just a millionth of a degree) you will see things differently and you will be able to change from within … changing the world itself through the power of your love which is divine.
This is how people together can change the world … the world that appears to be unchangeable.  When many people know this and work to change the world through love, divine love, loving prayer together, change happens.
