Legian, Bali

Overripe mangos
Big as melons
Fall with a soft thud
Into dusty alleys
To burst open
Revealing soft fragrant orange pulp

Thatched roofs
Ornately carved doors
Sculptured stone fences
Vines and flowers
Weaving over them

I wake hours before dawn
To the crow of the roosters
And birds calling out from palm trees

Time stand still
Only the gentle stream moves

Candidasa, Bali

Last night
In this transcendent place
I have absorbed through every pore
The peace that pervades –
The sounds of the sea
The pounding of the waves
As we sat together under starlit skies
And watched the dark drifting clouds
Swallow the glowing half moon
Then spit it out again
As they glided on the wind
Sitting in silence
Breathing in the night sea air
We felt grateful for the gifts
Of these days.

Arbutus Tree
Galiano Island, BC

The Arbutus tree stands
Timeless, silent
Stretching across the wood porch
All one can hear
Is the gentle ripple of the stream
This cold spring evening.

I am filling myself again
With silence
Water sounds
Soaking in the quiet evening
Ocean water lapping
Against the rocks below

Miracles gaple online indonesia

We hope for miracles
We settle for what is
The heart, in quiet silence keeps seeking
As life is daily lived
The awe of the miracles makes us cry
Whether they happen or they don’t
Sometimes we touch the miracle
For an instant
And even that instant
Gives us “hope”

“Miracles” watercolor card
$3.00 USD

Palm Tree, Bali

I feel myself falling
Into the languid rhythm
of these days
Lost in timelessness
Knowing only the needs of the body
The patterns of the hours
The heat of the sun
The breeze and it’s refreshing coolness
The sound of the sea
The liquid peace that is poured over everything
Like soft melted butter

Nature speaks to me
Through all these things
Pulling me quietly into myself
Deeper and deeper
Until every moment
Is a ripple on the sea of silence

“Palm Tree” watercolor card
$3.00 USD


We need to create – even a little
Time spent in creating each day is medicine
It balances and heals our souls and our hearts
It brings us to our centre.
It brings us peace.

Open Lotus: Thoughts on Love

Open Lotus: Thoughts on Love

Open Lotus: Thoughts on Love – Betsy Randel has created a lush and insightful collection of poems in this, her first book, “Open Lotus: Thoughts on Love”.

When we open her pages, we enter another world. One of deep peace. Betsy’s poems share with us deeply moving expressions the love of nature, love in relationships, and ultimately, the love of the Divine. Image-rich and inquisitive, Open Lotus weaves parallels between the inner and outer worlds, fusing them together in often thought-provoking verse.

Open Lotus: Thoughts on Love

Says Anita Nairne, an art instructor in Vancouver, B.C., “Betsy finds companionship in the beauty around her and expresses it with a compassion that makes one search and question life’s essence.”

A visual artist as well, Betsy has been exploring watercolors, acrylics, and photography for the past ten years. Open Lotus is peppered with her colorful creations, inspired by the rich flora of the Hawaiian Islands, Bali, and the coastal islands of British Columbia.

“Betsy Randel is the Open Lotus. Her passion for life, love, and enlightenment is evident throughout her poetry and paintings. Her poems chart the heart of a seeker on her personal journey towards self-realization. Highlighting that bumpy lonely road are glimpses of the eternal Silence that underlies and permeates all of life – our own inner Self.

“Innocently open to her art and you will find healing here, and a reconnection with who you truly are.”

Kenny Chawkin, Media Relations Officer and fellow poet, Fairfield, IA
