Hydrangeas for Italo

There was a man
He lived across from us
His spirit and smile lifted me up.
He was joy incarnate.
I hardly knew him, but I knew him.
I loved him. He died recently.
When I paint, I overlook his house
And I feel his presence
like a spark of love in our garden
This one is for Italo.
We used to leave him gifts on his doorstep
He used to make us jam.
He was kind.


Is it half past thing?
Or quarter to more?
I’m not sure, if I’m to meet you
This day
or before.

Either way
I’ll see you in my dreams
Outside of time o’clock
where eternity seems

so real and free
where stars speak clearly
and temporality
just ceases.

Painted Poems

Imagine if one blue sky day
the hidden stars came into view
And started raining down on you
As they landed
one by one
They’d kiss your skin
and fill you in
on the magic and potential
that already sits inside
Your very own activation guide
The stars are something bright
hiding behind another light.

Painted Poems

I spilt some magic on the floor
It seeped through the cracks
Of my neighbours front door
The next day she told me
She felt so much better
I didn’t know she was feeling low.

It’s happening! We’re coming together. We’re playing. We’re showing each other the light. We have travelled long and far and been to hell and back. And now we are being shown the heavens and bringing them to earth. Things that have been hidden are coming to the surface. Love is being shared freely. We’re opening up to our unique gifts and talents. We’re beginning to let our bright light shine more and more freely. We’re healing ourselves and each other. We’re using those latent and often hidden talents which are unspeakable in that they make no sense to the logical mind. But they are real and they have power and we are using them. Woo hoo!

We’re showing each other the way. We’re reminding each other of our gifts. We’re sharing them with each other. We’re PLAYING! Yay.


If you receive a sacred Oracle Card reading – or even give one to yourself (this can be a delicious practice which I soooo look forward to when the time is ripe) keep a photo of your cards. I don’t use cards as a prediction tool, but time and time again when I refer back to cards that friends or I pulled for me from a few months back I have so many light bulb moments and see how my wisdom and higher self knew so much more than my conscious mind. I just love joining the dots in that way. It feels like a practice in itself. Sometimes in the moment the card will deeply resonate, and then, when read a few weeks or even months later you’re able to see or hear an even deeper message.
