Infinite Wisdom

Infinite wisdom, time and space

Concepts man cannot embrace

Spirits and guides, to you implore

Follow, trust with them explore

 

Faith in the vastness sight unseen

Purpose, path, what does it mean?

Miracles happen every day

Inward turn, you’ll find your way.

Lost Valentine

P1020454

 

I walk the beach, our favored spot

Searching for my love.

Pink puffs on blue, sun bursting through

Hopes are riding high

 

Be this the day I see his face

Finding his way back

To hearth and home, his family

Awaiting safe return?

 

I see a man.  He’s coming near

Bursting is my heart

The gait is wrong, the build not his

Smashed to smithereens

 

The gulls are screaming, “Silly girl.

Spirits walk with God.

You look for him, but cannot see.

Open up your mind.”

 

“A special date, a butterfly,

Feathers, pennies find

A rainbow stretched across the sky

Messages of love.”

Put yourself in the other guy’s shoes

Be Still

be-still

Get, Rejoice, Contribute!

Holidays, depressed once more

Wallow in self-pity

Humankind is happier

Life for me a struggle

 

Ego taunts.  “Poor me,” it cries.

Stifling heart and logic

Spirit softly whispers love

“Precious being, holy.”

 

Spirits linking infinite

Time and space forgotten

Ancestors, angelic aides

Blessings freely given

 

Look around for gifts abound

Sunlight, trees and flowers

Creatures made by God’s own hand

Each unique and custom

 

Lift your heart by giving thanks

Ego kicked to gutter

Share what’s yours with fellowman

Get, rejoice, contribute!    

Do You Know a Soul?

Do you know a soul

Who sucks the life from you,

Whose selfish temperament

Drains all the strength you have?

 

Do you know a soul

Compassionate and strong

And generous with all

An Angel sent from God?

 

Do you know a soul

Whose angry eyes are dark

Who only wants to harm

All creatures in his way?

 

Do you know a soul

Whose heart is good but lost

Can’t find his way from dark

To see the lighted path?

 

Do you know a soul

Who needs your precious words?

The truth is plain to see

Each spirit needs your prayer.

 

Do you know a soul

Who needs your helping hand?

Give freely if you can

We all come from the One!

The Rose

Fragrant rose stands alone

Protected by her thorns

Facing winds, pests, disease

Surrounded by her peers

 

By herself in a group

She meets her fate head on

Knowing that all blooms fade

Her time is limited

 

Bud to bloom, path is set

Each petal will unfold

Sharing joy, beauty’s gift

Revealing what’s inside

 

We’re unique, talented

Our mission is to use

What we have, who we are

To help our fellow man

More Than Not

Gratitude that opens doors

To greater gifts abound

Open heart appreciates

With humble hands gives praise

 

What you have is more than not

Enough for you to share

Break the bread to pass around

For more will come your way

 

Care for others, rich and poor

Their crosses they must bear

Kindness, love and gratitude

Are gifts we all can give

 

Happiness is from within

The joy of feeling blessed

Thankful for the birds that sing

When challenged by life’s test

 

What you have is more than not

With humble hands give praise

Happiness is from within

The joy of feeling blessed

Human Condition

Struggle through the birth canal

The baby fights for life

Tiny lungs that gasp for air

A slap across the butt

 

Pattern set for human life

It’s cruel and cold sometimes

Fraught with tests and challenges

To teach life’s lessons best

 

Question not when things are good

Enjoy the respite time

Love will keep your spirit whole

Resilient, strong, inspired

 

Time to leave will come with death

For most another fight

Struggle through the veil to light

Cross over, job well done!

Inner Voice

Twisted moments, fleeting dreams

Confusion, fractured thinking

Make a change or stay the course

Decisions weighing heavy

 

Seeking wisdom I must have

To excavate God’s message

Light one step before I fall

Or give me wings for flying

 

Life’s a crap shoot, nothing’s sure

Endure on Faith all blindly

Listen to the inner voice

Within the answer’s hiding
