Great Spirit Mother Earth
There was a time our mother earth spoke
Great words of wisdom in ancient times
A time when children were one with the Great Spirit

The children lite their fires on this great land
at one time; life was lived in simplicity

Dirge Of The Unborn
The Owl hoots
In the smooth silence of midnight drama,
3 a.m thick darkness
Unrivalled by neither the moon nor stars.
She moans and wail in excruciating pain
Forgetting the envisioned end from the beginning,
Her pain shrouded my pleas from within;

Wisdom Was Found

The day moves me into this ultimate search
Of the principality that Lords over life
And rules over Kings, nobles, aged and Princes
As my desire yearns for that which is profitable to direct.
Steadfastly aiming to avoid the natural consequences

There is a way:
Just look within;
Feel stillness play
Wise poise unseen.

See what you see:
Feel grace and light;
Just let things be —
Stillness heals sight.

Heed deep insight:
Silence does speak
As waves cast flight
In timeless peak.

So come away:
A still small voice
In surreal sway
Bestows sure poise.

Dawn hurls magic,
Wet cleansing rain;
Cold feels dynamic,
These April strains.

New day streams brisk,
Start with cold feel;
Edge soft and crisp,
A new page thrills.

Here in brief trace,
Goodwill moves time;
Grace in this space,
Prompts sensuous chimes.

Rain drones away,
All cares stand still;
I watch this play,
Etch sacred...Read More

After that dark night
Deep with thick vile,
Morn cast new light
As unease styles.

So much dense pain
In wild outbreak,
Dawn spreads more strain
As disease stakes.

A vicious brief
Of panic zooms,
Sad voices grief
As virus booms.

Corona flu
Infects the world,
Fear screams mad blue
As traction swirls.

Voices cry out

On the verge
Feel joy emerge
In sparkling surge

When words fail
Feel trust prevail
As faith avails

Sad times here
Disguise new cheer
As hope drowns fear

Look to grace
To cleanse your space
With truth you face

Seize this day
To promptly pray
For health to stay

Feel your heart
Shape a kind art

Touch knows urge
Word by word
In deep surge
Feel is heard

Seed slow mime
Words in time
Cast blooms rhyme
Plot strange chimes

That knows this
Seize fine ease
In sure bliss
Prize true peace

Sense light rays
On the way
Mind games play
To greet day

Hope knows fest
In sad truth
Faith words best

Nothing delights the Lord more 

than a grateful humble heart 

He would choose to make it shine

by setting its soul apart!

It's Now

The flotilla of the ivory-varnished sailing clouds, 
gliding across the cerulean sky of serenading spring,
turned into the menacing fleet of sudden scare. 
Its shadow of invisible danger has changed our lives,
maybe forever.

Tangled in the complex social web of modern life,

The Real Treasure
This mud isn't new to me, numb hands searching something…
Sticky mud covered my legs, swimming fish gape.
Beam of light took a little peep over the algae, shining sands akin to gold.
Down here mud hide something, touch gave the feeling of...Read More

And on the same the day that I was killed,

And my faithful heart with love was filled,

Close with
Still communicating

Thinking they are forever there
In the moments to come
Talking about random things
Going deep in our souls

Doing everything
Being there
For each other
Hopefully for a lifetime

There is no control
For all of them to stay

It will be hard for you,
if you know what I am,

Our lives we lead
Being whoever we want
Style we cultivate
Character we build

So matter what
The differences
Life phases

We all have 
Come up
One day
Go down

Table turns
No longer fixed

All four corners
And two dimensions

Do not turn blind eye
When we have everything
Saying what we please
As if we...Read More

Make it to home
Pushing last strength left
Removing shoes
Head forward
Being first to the finish line

Flush cheeks
Wandering mind
Sense of relief
Being safe
Dropping everything

Dive into comfy clothes
Brew tea
Double cups
To keep warmth
After cold air outside

Slowly sipping
Melting memories today
Forgotten and done
No longer bother me

Acknowledgement to myself

Always be more to learn
Quickly adapt 
Crushing timelines

Hard to keep up
No matter how much I ask
Still being back 
Where I started

Confused of important or urgent
Cannot make a difference
When everything pushes me
In all directions

Pressue cooker
Waiting to explode
Need to breathe and cry
