Beauty of the Seasons
Diane Arkenstone



My heart is wide open from the joy of life
Wildflowers in abundance, sweet green meadows on the shores of crystal waters
I am the wind, floating through time, that stands still, at this very moment.


Beauty and power overtake the senses
Magnificent trees cloaked in green, against mountains and echoing thunder
All rising up, as if to touch God.


Between earth and sky, color and light
The essence of energy takes a new form
A delicate balance of power and majesty
As grace spreads peace over the valley.


Against a veiled sky, beyond doors of light,
A beautiful metamorphosis gently stirs
All is asleep, in this immense stillness of now.

I just found out that Diane has a new recording coming out on May 15th. Called "Light Of Varying Energies," it features a cello and--I just listened to it--is absolutely beautiful. It will be available on Amazon as a digital single.
