Deb Luster


You walk into a crowded room

And create a subtle shift—

A stir in your wake

A murmur melting the sleepy glazed gloom in the

eyes that follow you…

“Who is she?”

“Do I know her?


Your powerful presence reminds them of…

Something they have forgotten…a

Small sparkling memory of themselves at some time

when they were their Supreme Selves…

a nagging notion

Of the Truth.

Your honest beauty

and quiet strength are as

A crystal pebble gracefully dropped

on the Lake of Life

Creating concentric rings of Light and a

Feather whisper in their ears,


As their chins rise

And their eyes open wide,

they brush the dust from their bodies

And they even laugh.
