'Winter Water, Iced Beauty'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
'When you lie down in the snow
the Earth is warm,
if you can feel the heartbeat of Life -
moving throbbing thriving alive.

When you sit on the ice at River's edge
the Water is whispering, secret
Life moving throbbing thriving alive.

Earth's storage place,
it's incubational womb,
hosting Life alive below the surface -
where Seeds plant themselves,
where Fish caught the Wind blown catch.

Look, simply look through the ice,
to see that the window to our world is open,
Look at what is Living it's Life,
Living Life thrives on our planet,
it is there for anyone to see - just Look."
~ K.L. Atkinson

'Moving Impressions'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Impressions move the Mind
to change form into emotions -
and transform perception of Self.
Impressions can magnify to simplify,
and minimize to complicate -
extolling the magnificence of Life,
while glorifying the significance of the living.
Take a moment to reperceive,
and that one moment will change your life -
how you lead to live your life,
and how you live to lead your life."

'Create Gentle Impressions'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"What is Life if not gentle -
all Life values gentleness,
admires gentleness,
is in awe of gentleness.

Who are the gentle -
those who understand
the power,
the presence
and the passion
of that which is, gentle.

Why are the gentle valued
by those who are gentle,
by those who are not gentle,
by those who desire to be gentle -
gentility is the ability to respect Life.

Gentility is a gift given
to those who have the ability to listen,
gentility is a gift cultivated
by those who want to be listeners,
gentility is a gift valued
by those who want to be listened to,
gentility is a gift of peace
to all those who want to be peaceful.

To be gentle is to be at peace,
to be at peace is to be gentle,
listen to the sound of peace,
it sounds like gentleness -
step gently,
leave gently,
create gentle impressions,
be peaceful."

'Frosted Flowers, Frosted Flakes'
Life flowering, budding in a blizzard.
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Today I brushed away the frozen Water crystals.
Asking for a thaw to make Life easier,
I hoped the snow would melt,
but then I came to my senses,
and became more conscious of the gift.
Water is a gift in any form.

Water is a gift in all forms,
bodies being a form that holds Water.
The Heart would become dry and brittle,
decompose so there is no organ music -
if Water did not move creating passages,
the harmonics of notes streaming ancient reminders.
Water is a gift.

Yesterday I ate my fill of light frozen Water crystals.
Happiness entered my body and joy infused my mind.
Unique flakes, feeling of lightness -
not powdered snow but huge crystals
each one falling to Earth in slow motion,
each one in a hurry to touch and nourish Life.
Water is Life"
~ K.L. Atkinson

'Lingering Impressions'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"If it was not for the blur in One's Life
then One would have no hope
of recognizing that reality is not real -
that reality is only one experience of oneness.

Born in the blur of Life
hope comes from impermanence
arises from transient, evanescent,
inconstancy of one life lived by One.

Effective living betters mediocracy
and restores individual livelihood
to self-create sustainable subsistence -
one life valued by the One who is living it.

One sets One's own individual standards,
to be beyond ultimate meaning and purpose,
to see clearly One's own unique existence,
to be the One in one once-in one lifetime.

To be certain of change, is to be
confident of Mind, courageous of Heart,
to create one life worth living,
once in one moment.

One's livelihood worth living
is to live for One's own self betterment
to provide One's own life transformational
talent from mediocrity and meaninglessness.

To be One's own self-guidance system,
is to be one force and freak of Nature - an awe,
in awe of awesome momentary awesomeness -
living one life is a flash in One's moment of eternity."
~ K.L. Atkinson

'Full Impressions'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
'Beauty among Life's pins and needles,
always there, sometimes blurred,
but always present in full bloom,
or as presence in a seed,
hidden below the surface,
yet ready to blossom,
on any give day and night,
all year long, all the time,
Beauty isn't seasonal, nor finite,
Beauty is eternal, infinite -
seek Beauty to find Beauty,
Beauty is always found,
because Beauty is always present,
buried within the seed that contains all Life"

'Frozen Beach, Thawed Heart'

"Take a quiet walk inside your own Heart,
if you see beauty keep walking,
go deeper and breath courage
to love your humanity, once and for all,
be Human, once more, once, to gain -
take Heart, renew your Heart,
Life takes Heart.

Take a quiet walk inside your own Heart,
if you see hatred keep walking,
go deeper and create courage
to forgive your humanity, once and for all
become Human, once again, once, to gain -
give Heart, it takes Heart
to change your Heart,
Life takes Heart"

'Making Rainbows'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
'What is the Night time for,
if not to make Rainbows.
Moon knows it's brightness
makes bows, rain or shine.
The Rainbow made by the Moon at night,
to some observers may seem less,
than a Rainbow created by the Sun at day.
At night, human eyes see all colours,
that are dim, as black and white.
The night colour, of a Night's light bow,
is Moon-bow gray to humans.
To other Life on Earth, their sighting
of the Moon's bows can be as colourful
as Day, is perceived by the Night.
Perception is an aspect of sight,
but seeing fully is an act of the Heart.

'Seasonal Spirit'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Plants whisper in colours -
seeds created quietly inside,
spouted internally,
then viewed externally,
as shoots of growth.

Listen to plants so you can hear -
their whispers telling their stories,
of Life before life as we know it -
preceding Humans on the scene,
plants were in existence eating Light,
and giving Life as the original sharers.

Plants, the selfless Ones
who know the truth,
that Life on this planet
requires sharing,
authenticity
to grow -
Life on this planet
lives on respect
is nurtured by appreciation,
and when loved
grows stronger"
