You shift from one plateau to another
What was once secure and sure
Moves to unsure and even less secure
Battles fought – lost and won
Leaving scars and all too often thoughts undone
Find the stabilizing center
Recognize and utilize the power that is available for you
Don’t beg for it
Never misuse or abuse
Walk in and appreciate what is there for you to use
When you are ready
That power will work and produce for you
Life Changes – musings by Kim Cline 2019
If I could write a beautiful story – it would begin with your name.
If I could paint a magnificent masterpiece – it would reveal your beauty.
If I were able to climb the highest mountain – I would envision your joy as I reached the summit.
If I were able to move throughout all the known universe – it would not compare with the wonder of being in your presence and just talking with you.
If I could erase all the negative events of our past – I would remember each day as a beautiful sunrise.
If we could communicate freely – our corner of the world would become a museum of exploration.
If we could start again – I would use all my power to make sure that each day was a beautiful, new page in a novel of fantastic imagination.

A Peculiar Star by Kim Cline
excerpt from Love’s Indefatigable Aptness and The Monatomic Solid
Dedicated to precious Mark … you left this universe far too soon
He was a peculiar star
Appearing in the midst of a different equation
His luminous spectra should have been as normal as the others
Yet, his increasing power of wonderment elevated and propelled him farther — higher
Moving outside the ordinary into the eruptive variable
Revealing a greater level of rarity
Brilliant flares projected his brightness to an incalculable distance
Dispelling darkness along his path- if only briefly
For the rare cannot remain long in the midst of the ordinary–
their beautiful displays of churning death revealed with a vibrant luminosity
The eventual implosion spiraling upward, outward –
fusing, blending, dispersing new life into the stellar remnant
He knew the distance of his travel would be brilliantly short
He did not complain in the knowing
I have seen him floating in the distant Magellanic Stream
And appearing at the side of the universal Power
The light echo of his persona still pulsates within our hearts
His brightness still piercing our thoughts –
Energy fading as a distant star after a magnificent, explosive show
We continue to remember as we degenerate, oscillate–
throughout the remaining timeline of our ordinary projection
There are times when someone just needs light to show up in their life.
“Royalty is born!” The announcements were made and the crowds gathered to wait for the presentation. There was a high level of excitement in the atmosphere. Eventually, attendants began to show up on the platform, passing through heavy, velvet, crimson curtains. Everyone directed their attention to the curtains, expecting, hoping, smiling. The curtains parted and the leader of the country stepped out. With admiration, the speech began, “Citizens of the universe, today I have an announcement to make. This day is a day of recognition. Today, I am staring into the faces of royalty. Each and every one of you carries the DNA of all the wisdom of the passing ages. The day you were born, your name was shouted among the stars and you were declared royal. I am reaffirming that declaration. You are royal!” The crowd cheered, danced, and clapped. The elevation of energy was creating such an atmosphere that could be felt throughout the venue and beyond. “Wear your crown. Carry yourself as royalty. Know that you are valued, unique, and highly cherished.”
