When I Pray

young-woman-praying

I do not pray
to escape from conflict
but rather to understand
conflict as a tool for growth.

I pray to gain
not knowledge
but insight.

My prayers reach
toward the Divine
and seek, not material gain
but rather that my soul
expands into greater receptivity.

I pray so that I can go
from what is to what
is destined to be.

The Math of Music

I never learned the language of math
It was music I learned instead
Seems like a symphony is better
To rattle around in my head

Sock Fun

Sock tied in a knot
Hours of fun on the floor
Next time, I’m a dog!

I’ll Be There

I’ll be there
when prisoners of despair
call from the depths of their suffering.
I will open the eyes and hearts
of the spiritually blind.

May all who sit in darkness
enslaved by fear and evil
call out My Name.
I’ll be there
to comfort and protect
to lead you to the Light.

I minister to all
who hunger and thirst
for righteousness
pouring out the Spirit of Truth
from the endless well.

I’ll be there, Dear Ones,
no one who seeks will
be turned away
for always
I’ll be there.

Shoe by the road
Tombstone of a boy

No Prison, Please

approval

I am as free as my mind allows.
The only prison is inside.
Others can not bind me.
Neither bars or approval can restrict.
I am as free as my mind allows.
Only fear keeps one shackled.

Train or Bird?

Train riding the tracks
There’s only one way to go
Free bird in the sky!
