Break or Bend

Darkest night, the tempest rages

Violent winds upon the shore

Mighty Oak and Willow bracing

Morning light reveals the score

 

Staunchly stood the Oak resisting

Any change from status quo

Willow swayed and rode the current

Bowing to the greater force

 

Steadfast Oak sustained much damage

Branches snapped that would not bend

Willow’s tired leaves discarded

Healthy limbs, a place for growth

 

Change occurs, how will you answer?

Fight to keep your comfort zone?

Ride the thermals to new heights?

Break or bend, your life, your choice.

 

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.

Love Thyself

love-thyself

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!    

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

Destiny

Loss, disappointment are not the end

But a reason to push past comfort

Open a chapter to destiny

Path to fulfill your divinity

Star Upon The Tree

I set the star upon the tree

A special place on top

Reminder of past Christmases

I spent with my life’s love

 

Did I appreciate those days

While running to and fro

Or did I miss the best of times

Wrapped up in Christmas rush?

 

The baking, cooking, trim the tree,

Will all of it be done

Before the family arrives

For dinner Christmas eve

 

 

We’d stay up late to build the toys

Exhausted, went to bed

Excited boys would wake by five

To see what Santa left

 

I cannot travel back in time

To capture what was lost

My photos of past holidays

Forever warm my heart

 

That special star upon the tree

Burns brighter from above

His spirit lives forever more

In everlasting love

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Way Back

The Way Back from loss

A struggle each day

My heart torn in half

I wished he could stay
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Alas, not to be

His job was complete

Fulfilled, he must go

Ancestors to meet

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
The Way Back from grief

I stumble and fall

In potholes of pain

Picked up to stand tall

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

New chapters to write

And places to see

More people to help

Adventures for me

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
The teacher is life

To live it, to learn

Move forward he says

My love’s at each turn

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
The Way Back takes time

To heal and move on

With wide open eyes

To see what’s beyond.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Excited and daunted

My soul will be fed

I know it’s the path

The Way Back I tread
