In The Moment..

In the quiet of the moment

All noise
All burdens
All distractions
All dissipate

In the nakedness of the moment
All layers
All colors
All embellishments
All relinquished

In the nothingness of the moment
All abundance
All magnificence
All completeness
All revealed

In the beauty of the moment
All vulnerability
All transparency
All simplicity
All acknowledged

All in just a moment
All the sound of quietness
All the completeness of nothingness
All the beauty of nakedness
All free to be felt and owned
All found in the moment
The home of everything

Quintessence

Universally recognized
Here it is
This new moment
This new year

Tolling bells
Universally recognized
Chime the old out
Ring in the new

Some are sad
Some are glad
Universally recognized
Time stopping for none

Moments
Occasions
Lifetimes
All universally recognized

Irreplaceably given
Recklessly squandered
Unforgivably forgotten
Until each last

Moment
Person
Lifetime
Era and Age

If so recognized
Then what baloney
To latently lament
To wantonly procrastinate

Hitch the saddle
Reve the engine
Flap your wings
Leave the dust to settle

Set no formula
Prove no hypothesis
Cut the concepts
Feel the lifestream surge

Love; power second to none
Kindness; giver above all
Peace; love and kindness paired

Recognize this
Quintessence
And then there can be
Universal peace

Poof!

What used to upset
Rock, overturn my boat,
No longer controls
The sway of my day

No matter the shock waves
My steel rod nerves
Come from my heart’s
Tranquil waters

The ripple and waves
Grow and threaten,
But I’ve learn no fight
Is quite the answer

Steer instead
With kindness and faith
And strength will arrive
To save the day

A little focus
A lot of love
And oh by golly
The demons have gone!

Sunrise to Sunset…

Behold the promise of a new day
From the colors in the sky
Not a rainbow yet still quite an array.

Yellow, emerging with power
Orange to red passing passion and fire
Even dark blue is warm yet smoldering
As forced to retire by the glimmer of dawning.

Such are colors of life
Rich and in their turn take the stage.
Enjoy each hue
As the glows and shimmers, wax and wane
From life’s breaking dawn to it’s restful night…

Close your eyes..

Close your eyes…

Colors beyond the spectrum
Hues composed of love
Sparkle yet softened
Engulfing yet inviting

A beauty unparalleled
Not visual but felt
Alluring yet freeing
Enamoring yet calming

This colorful beauty
The picture of a living haven
Visible in clear sight
Yet needing no eyes

Glorious Company

image

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

Tiny grains of sand

image

Tiny grains of sand
Compress and surface
As a string of pearls

Singular droplets of moisture
Merge and form
The great oceans

Flimsy wisps of cloud
Float and rise
As the comforting sky

Each and every breath
Shallow or deep
Opportunities encompassing existence

Such grandeur!
Pearls, oceans, the sky
Even existence.

All nothing without
The minutiae
Grains, droplets, wisps
And every little breath.

What is it that we see?
What is it that we acknowledge?
The whole?
Or it’s parts?

What are we?
Mankind
Nations
Communities
Or individuals?

How kindly we are made!
How kindly we are acknowledged!

Each with a face
Never duplicated
Each with a beat
Rhythm unique
Each allowed
Opportunity unparalleled!

Have you seen
The part you are?
Own your chance
Claim your gift
Live your turn
No strings attached
This is your time!
