*  "In pure consciousness there is no time," Deepak Chopra

Melody and words float through my head, they have accompanied me for some "time" now.  ***Come Down In Time is playing softly on repeat track as I write.  The song is a mystic friend and companion helping me draw in words and images.  I hear the tone poem's lilting lyrics: 

***  "In the quiet silent seconds I turned off the light switch, and I came down to meet you in the half light the moon left...."

I called my friend Debra then discovered  her blog post.  Debra's photo drew me right into the story.

Excitedly starting to type some of the story's words I wrote:

Retype "On"
"....Sunday AM...I went out of doors for my walking meditation....following the 'wrong way' signs, I saw this amazing piece of art [h-eart]....a single heart shaped leaf was floating in a mud puddle." [I almost typed 'puzzle'.]

Debra continues, "The puddle was surrounded by gravel, each piece seemingly having been placed by some artist for its aesthetic value."  [I saw jewelry in the stones. I felt ancient mosaics.]

 "The tree silently standing watch had been reflected in the water in such a way you could imagine you were seeing arteries from that heart."  [I saw a necklace.]

I heard song lyrics float by:
***  "A mantel of bright light shown down from a room...."
Come Down in Time, and I'll meet you halfway....

"The friend is here...."  Rumi
