Being of Tulip


Being of Tulip

June 19 2013








Illumination of The Heart











Tulip Light doth shine so bright today * ` ~

Much more than all the other days in the sun







Whilst all the while ` ~ `




Emotion way too grand for the tender of heart to bear

Pull my being through this state and that




O'h` ~

`~

O'h` ~












Memory so fresh of a lover's lament

~ * ~




Many many years ago









So a`gaze I am upon the beautiful tulips

On this brilliant blue blue day

Today







Then 


~ * ~









I saw with my very own eye

Into the brightest Tulip d`oth shine a beam of delight
  
Sweeping the flowers all pink purple and red

Into the wind of violet



To vibrate with time



The yellow so bright












A tango of citrus throughout leaves of lime











~`Dreamy Dance`~ is this

For first flowers of Spring

To blow dark shadow away







O'h



O'h


How sweet blowing tulip can be

In love with brightness of Light




Indeed the spell hath cast a blessing



Ode ` ~

To soothe the pain of a broken heart ~ not possible to break



~ * ~



*







Amid`st blowing winds that march with time







  
Pray then I did to Elemental Grace

To feather all bloomy essence with love joy and mirth




Should another come this way today













Deliver dear God, your glorious healing gift

~ * ~


Infuse with joy the heart full of sorrow

*

For all to behold your Passion Divine









And so I lay there  ~  spell bound



For who knows how long`

 
Full of the glorious scent of earth

~~~


A`breast a bed of Tulip touched by an azure sky






Surrender I did to the delight of hue's rapture


Amidst` all His Heavenly Light


A` drop of diaphanous white


*









Scent sweetened all seed




O'h

Oh



To soothe the ~ tremble ~ of a tender heart




Then there it was` ~











Palest of Blue



Blushed the sweetness of innocence

 Touched by stillness on the breath of a breeze



God's purest expression of life








Beheld I did ~ Being of Tulip



Upon this bed of soft skinned petals

A`drift

With the broken of heart




~ ` Pure Sweet Love ` ~ 









O`h ~

~`

O`h ~










Where life overflows with Bliss 

 


Hide & seek there awhile




There among the Tulips




A` touch of Heaven's beam unfolding in joyful delight









All within the stalks so very green with lime








O`h ~

~`
  
O`h ~








Hear the call of Love’s haunting melody




   



  
  Pluck the heart of old gypsy violin 








T`would be fairest of memory

A`midst blowing field of green









Blow wind blow your gift of life so rain may fall```~

Until the Tulips beam all a`glow





 


Tousled bloom a`midst pale shade of pigment dream
 


 Listen tenderly to lutes swoon so sweet





Brilliant caress of blue night's silvery moon








Be lost to the breath of sweet scent

~ ~ ~

Palm of a new dawn




~ Nothing Compares







~ Nothing Compares









 Soft pretty petals







Whisper your lament to innocent heart so pale










Being of Tulip now ```


 Being of Tulip & dreaming of You


On this brilliant Spring day












Somewhere` very`` far``` 


far`````~*..... away

Whitby Station Gallery
1976 -1982

 
Imelda Maguire, Marg Bird, and Marilyn Clack at work painting the Coach for the Gala ~ Orient Express Ball ~  Heydenshore Pavilion, Whitby Ontario 1982.






As a volunteer for the Whitby Station Gallery in Whitby Ontario for several years, I witnessed many wonderful artists unfolded their work revealing the ~ Grace ~ of their craft.  It was all one could do just sit there silently watching in awe.  During this time I was able to explore the dance of the Sumi brush as well as fall madly in love with the art of Sue Tabuchi who greatly inspired the mastery of the stroke; concentration on the freedom of the brush.

Unfortunately I could not find any work of Sue Tabuchi posted on the web as an example of Sue's brilliant mind.  Might you be reading this and know of any Sue Tabuchi work and  have a link please feel free to add your news in the comment box below the post, most appreciative I would be as would the other viewers of this site.


Many Thanks.


God Bless


~*LOVE ALWAYS*~

Angel Cocoon and Fantasy Flower were commissioned by my nephew Leonard Manning to help pay for my travel expense on the Go Train during my first year of the Ontario College of Art.

Indeed I explained to Len that he did not have to pay his Aunty Mel for his painting, a pleasure it would be to do this for him.  Insisted he did indeed, just like a true gentleman would. I am eternally grateful to Leonardo Da Vinci (my Papa’s nickname for my nephew Leonard) for always believing in the artwork.

The concept of Blue Madness is taken from the view inside of the mind behind the lashes of the eye; a view that was brought on through a physical experience of the body when mind automatically blocked the mental and emotional pain suffered as a direct result from being rear-ended in an automobile accident. The image that manifested during the first few moments of shock was one of a very comforting sensation of the self floating on on an ethereal pond under the warmth of the sun as presence became that of being a wee fly or frog upon the leaf of a water lily bloom.


All reality of the outside world in that very moment ceased; it had been blocked by mind, or perhaps it was the soul to remove all shock and pain from the  unconscious self.



It was my thought that these two pieces hanging in the Women’s Shelter might bring some measure of calm to the families who visit there for a short while through their troubled times.  


Sometimes it is necessary to take a painful memory of the past from fully expressing itself in the moment by releasing those old fragmented stories of ours out into the universe in some healing creative way. 


It is up to us to decide when to let go of the grieving memories of a past.  Once released out from the inner depths of our inner soul in a loving sharing with the rest of humanity, or either privately within your own heart, such pain then becomes just that ~ a memory ~ the past.  I have discovered that it is alright to look back for a glance every once in awhile but only for a fleeting second to remind ourselves that what was, is now truly gone.  Our look back is only a reminder of our lessons learned.  Indeed we will eventually accept our personal part of that drama however large or small from beginning to end in that particular moment of time to heal our own soul, remembering always to forgive the self.


Remaining to be mindful of that moment of reflection will ensure us not to repeat our unconscious decisions again, painful memories released evaporate forever from our precious DNA by the simple choice of surrendering into the moment of now to heal the images of mind.  Be mindful to hold the thought that those memories are indeed truly gone.


Blue Madness was gifted with great respect to the services rendered to women by women in providing support as well as a safe environment for those mothers and children that have had to flee their home in order to find peace, comfort and care from the tyranny of abusive life situations that have run amuck in our life; out of control.


The Women’s safety network also acts as a liaison for those in need with the many Government financial and care services that help with affordable housing, trauma resource, legal and medical services for troubled families.  The many contacts that are opened to an individual are a direct aid to the mothers and children in the challenging effort to continue to look forward to their brighter tomorrow.


It is our choice to decide when we are truly ready to heal the imprint that comes from physical, mental, and emotional pain; simply release them into the wonder of nothingness.

Study in Color Vibration #1

When the eye focuses on where two colors meet that definable line is called the line of demarcation.  When one stares at that line of demarcation long enough where the two colors meet and are equal in all regards, the eye will pulsate ~ creating the illusion of movement, the entry into the mysteries of universe through the creative self..
