Glorious Company


Vast fields of plenty
Golden grains and grass
Yield and tilled
Harvested and recycled

Sideline bushery
Playfully sway
Adding mischief and contour
Bringing laughter and glee

All encompassed
As mothering Sun
Shines to illuminate
Both the way and life

What simplistic harmony
With delicate balance
Nurtures and fulfills
A full array of qualities

Rest and absorb
The bountiful beauty
The inherent peace
And recognize your glorious company

Life Matters



Ferocious and fun loving

Whimsical and free living

Compassionate and full of giving

All so distinct
And then,
By the Magician’s wand
All rolled into one, the human being!

What a jewel in this earthly crown!
Yet does he even know
How he stands out?!

By incredible design
A behavioral machine,
Reacting to stimuli
With unending zest.

Fascinated by the senses
With everything he sees
He hears
And touches!

Yet, not only is he the jewel in the crown
He is also a crown within the jewel!

Through every  cell
Every muscle
Every organ
And laid deep within
Are gems…

When uncovered
This vegetative
Animalistic human
Comes alive!

Alive! With a truth
That surpasses any sensory stimulation
That puts to shame the conquests of conquerors!

Because this journey
Can only be made alone
This journey
Makes you yield all your weapons
This journey
Is the making of mankind

When love, understanding, gratitude surface
Humility is second nature
The next person as deserving as you
Compassion for life and all that lives
Now matters.

Life matters!
