             AVALON
               Aurora @2002

Help me find Avalon,
Make the mists part,
To find all the beauty that exists,
In a simple bite of apple,
The star of heaven reveal to me,
Calling upon ancient stones,
To welcome me into their soul,
And make the choice of journeying,
To find my way back home.

Help me find Avalon,
Make the mists part,
To be happy within my heart,
In a simple bite of apple,
The lights of heaven reveal my road,
Calling upon the spiral boat,
To journey across the waters.
And help me know the rhyme of my
reason,
To find my way back home.

Help me find Avalon,
Make the mists part,
To find purpose in my weary mind,
In a simple bite of apple,
The time winds of heaven blow,
Calling upon the trees to guide me
home,
And help me stay strong in the spirit,
To find my way back home.

Help me find Avalon,
Make the mists part,
To lay within my body my whole
mind and heart,
In a simple bite of apple,
The lines of the earth lead me on,
Calling upon the ley of the land to
guide me home,
And help me be sure of the
knowledge being passed on,
To find my way back home.

Help me find Avalon,
Make the mists part,
To welcome me into the folds of the
mysteries heart,
In a simple bite of apple,
The song of my ancestors I hear,
Calling upon the vision of the way
to clear,
And to welcome me back home for I
have grown,
Like the tree on the island I have
risen above the mists,
And have seen the shores that lap
the island,
Knowing that someday here I will
feel the changes,
And the mists will part to welcome
me back home,
To find my way back home on the
shores of Avalon old,
Is where I must go so I am told.

       Living In The Light
Mary Sutherland has written a book
which explores the  mystical dynamics
of the world we live in.
Through it's pages we trace our roots
from the ancients  into our present
civilization and beyond.
She  tries to gives us a glimps into our
divine heritage and shows us how we
can use our inherited gifts for  everyday
life.
This book is unique as it combines
eastern/western religions with
mythology and physics explaining   the
working mechanics of our universe .
Living In the Light puts focus back into
an 'unfocused' world.
After reading it, the reader will never
quite see the world as they did before.
Living In The Light has everything
needed to be one of top selling books
of the year!
          Vision Stories
Wauwatosa pastor John Sumwalt has
a new book out about people's
encounters with visions, spiritual
awakenings, and other mystical
experiences, featuring several local
people.

         Prayer for Peace
                Aurora @2002

In my heart I offer a dove to you,
The children may see the sun,
And hold the sweet sparrow,
In desolate time where all life seems
barren,
To know the birds call,
To feel the rain that falls,
To sing the joys of life,
To pray the sorrows of death,
To live each day as one chooses,
With love,
With comfort,
With freedom,
With knowledge,
To look into the world,
And hear the cries of suffering,
I want to sooth your fears,
I want to sooth your hurt,
I want to sooth your pain,
To embrace the world with my light,
And let the dove fly in peace,
Towards the home in blue skies,
Made of white clouds that bring
cleansing rain,
Washing the earth of the filthy
marks of war,
Bringing green back to the hills and
valleys,
To see such a mother rocking us,
Circling around the sun and the
moon around her,
The cycles of life, death, and rebirth,
Offering me a white dove,
Flown from my hands in a prayer of
peace,
So that all may feel happiness,
Laughter,
And kindness as it should be,
Upon the wings of a bird rises the
prayer,
To peace sings the Earth Mother in
release,
A bird of gentle song,
Calling for a prayer of peace,
In the time of wars drums.
