'Moonbow'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius
Aquarius
Aquarius
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation
Aquarius
Aquarius
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius
Aquarius
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in.

We starve, look at one another short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes
Somewhere, inside something , there is a rush of greatness
Who knows what stands in front of our lives
I fashion my future on films in space
Silence tells me secretly ev'rything, ev'rything
Singing my space songs on a spiderweb star
"Life is around you and in you"
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in.
Open up your heart and let the sunshine in,
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in."
~ Galt Mac Dermot, James Rado and Gerome Ragni (lyrics)

'Opening'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"I have had to learn that my voice has value.
And if I don't use it, what's the point of being in the room?
If you don’t get out there and define yourself, you’ll be quickly and inaccurately defined by others."
~ Michelle Obama

'New Possibilities'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"I know I am foolish enough
to always find a store of optimism,
to forgive everything
and wake up the next day, fully present,
having forgot the ruin
and destruction of the past day before.

I know that I am a loving person,
and that each moment is an opportunity
to redefine myself, to myself, for myself.

I know fully
that each day
is an exercise in discovering -
new ways to love myself,
no matter what…
and so the journey goes on -
until it ceases to exist…
My eternal I
further ventures
into the wonderland
of the bodiless soul of adventure -
I will never cease,
nor desist,
because without a doubt,
I know I fully exist."
~ Karin Lisa Atkinson
Quote from her poem, "I Fully Exist"

'New Creativity'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Softly and cautiously from my mouth spilled
the stuttered lyrics of an ancient poem -
about a mountain that had a temple,
which housed a monk,
who told a story -
about a mountain that had a temple,
which housed a monk,
who told a story.
She giggled as I repeated the poem
each time she asked what the story was about.

She knew her part and I knew mine.
We both played our roles and found fun in the game.
We were philosophical about life and meshed.
We were fabric woven together at regular intervals,
a system related, connected parts,
paths that crossed in the manner
of strings threaded into a net.

We talked and she prayed
that someday ...
We would all Self-realize,
remember to see, that ...
We are all connected,
strands married in the web of life."
~ Karin Lisa Atkinson
Quote from her poem "We Are Strands Married In The Web of Life" (Tibet 1995)

'Liquid Consciousness'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"I hear the Fir Tree scabs ooze a healing substance:
I hear the loud chirp of cicadas
hiding in the trees
during the spring dust storms in Beijing -
I hear the honk of motorcycles
in the warring summer heat of Hanoi -
I hear the snorts of bulls
fighting in rings
in the autumn of Mexico -
I hear the cries of the farmers
wrapped in winter wools
arguing over prices at the market
on the border of China, Russia and Korea.

In the mean time
the planet’s crust peels away,
revealing our selves
to our selves ...
revealing our selves
and our meaning into the light ...
only below the surface,
just out of sight,
our truth is not hiding."
~ Karin Lisa Atkinson
Quote rom her poem, "I Am Warm, Full With Love"

'Moving From The Center'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"“I will love you for ever, whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead I'll drift about for ever, all my atoms, till I find you again ... I'll be looking for you ... every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again we'll cling together so tight that nothing and no one'll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you ... We'll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams ... And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won't just be able to take one, they'll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we'll be joined so tight...”
~ Philip Pullman 1946- (England)

'Fire and Ice'

"When I look at the northern lights ...
I see our ancestors dancing around a sacred fire,
lighting the way for us when it's time for us
to cross over from this physical world and join them."

'Painted Sunset'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Nothing can dim the light which shines from within."
"Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise."
