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

Obstacles

Some days feel like cliffs to climb

Focused on the summit

Blockades, detours, slipping back

Kicking, clawing upward

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Other times full speed ahead

Skiing down the mountain

All goes well without a hitch

Expediting, winning

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Doing what you love to do

Makes the struggle worth it

Overcoming obstacles

Life is good, go live it

Demons

Running from the chasing voices

Running from the angst inside

Facing fear the greatest demon

Facing those that rise within

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Run to meet the challenge head on

Fear is worse than what is real

Anxious moments, needless worry

Cast it off and shed the skin

Destiny

Loss, disappointment are not the end

But a reason to push past comfort

Open a chapter to destiny

Path to fulfill your divinity

Awaken

Springtime brings a ray of hope

Buried by short days and cold

Wander out, to feel the warmth

Renewed and cleansed, reborn

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Robin redbreast welcome back

Daffodils salute the change

Buds are forming on the trees

Awaken to the blessings

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Darkness, brightness, yin and yang

Minus one, you’d never know

Beauty, loving, heat and light

Awaken to the blessings

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Be aware, live gratitude

Find flickers in the nightscape

See the beauty, love abounds

Awaken to the blessings

Dance, Dance Today

Ball drops in Time Square

New Year begins

Celebrations

Resolutions

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Was the past so bad?

Disappointing

Unfulfilling

Shattered dreams, plans?

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Was it simply Life?

Joy and sorrow

Gifts and struggles

Rewards and tests?

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Two Thousand Fifteen

Best yet to come

Planning, dreaming

Wishing, hoping

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Don’t lose the moment

Live it, Feel it.

See the beauty

Hear the music

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Waste not a minute

Smell the roses,

Share your love

Dance, Dance today!

Listening

Listening to deepest yearnings

Voices whisper deep within

Listening to spirit guiding

Letting heart lead not my head

 

Discovering there’s more to see

Making choices new to me

Turning pages, writing chapters

Living my own history

 

No one else can walk my journey

Only I can take the path

Listening to spirit calling

Feeding soul with sight and sound

 

No one else can write my story

Not a one will take the blame

If I fail to have the courage

Paying heed to ego’s fears

 

Listening to deepest yearnings

Hear the calling from my heart

Listening to spirit guiding

I set sail for parts unknown
