See-Saw Faith

ipe

I am certain
without a doubt
firm in my faith,
that is
except
when I’m not.

I have decided
I need certain
rituals-spiritual crutches
to remain in balance;
this is part of who I am
at this moment.

All the tales I’ve been
told about “right and wrong”
were only other people’s
best guesses.
I am free to accept them
or discover my
own inner wisdom.
Teeter-totter
back and forth
waiting for me
to know what is true
for me.

Nothing Is More

I have nothing
and in doing so
have everything.

The more I let go
the more complete
am I.

Golden Years

Golden years
senior moments
less teeth and hair
creaky knees
no more toil
time to be
enjoying things
I love to do.

No more car pools
dirty diapers
(except perhaps my own some day).
I love these years
filled with hard-earned peace
time to reflect
to move on
to whatever comes next,
this cycle completed
when my Creator
calls me home.

I Would

If I could love You more
I would.
If I could think of you
with each breath
sing Your praises
with every word I spoke
entwine my soul
into Your essence
let this magnet of Light within
merge into Your Light Divine
from whence I come
I would do all,
for any distance from You
is too far.

Only when I am
part of the whole
can I be complete.

New Year’s List

23420e7af7b20ba97e210717e91c1e69

I’m making a list of New Year’s Resolutions.
Intention precedes manifestation.
My desire is to allow Creator to work through me.
I’m making a list of New Year’s Resolutions.
Staying alert to the call of Source.
Heart and hands ready to serve.
I’m making a list of New Year’s Resolutions.
Intention precedes manifestation.

Clear Waters

fish5

Water so clear
fish appear to swim in air
smogless air
sweet and pure
monarchs floating
above daisies
wildlife abundant
forest filled lands
all gone in just
my lifetime
destroyed by the
unrelenting greed
of man.

What comes next
Dear Ones
depends entirely
on our willingness
to change.

How will this
story end?
Happily ever after
or a Grimm tale of woe?

Eye of the Hurricane

eye-of-a-hurricane

I stand in the eye
of the hurricane
a moment in time
where all madness
stands still
air filled with electricity
and anticipation
while I remain
suspended
calm
content
untouchable
serene in my soul
