Symbols

8-snake

All around us are symbols.
Can we read them?
Do we dare?
What might they tell us:
whispers of angels
or demons who feed
on our fears?

I see a hawk
then another
soon there are three
hawks, ancient power
number 3, fantasy
or mystery?

Shall I be logical
practical, unbelieving
or shall I allow the
Universe to play the game?

Not Silent

1017391_10152273007086005_8103944312478828142_n

I may seem silent
but my soul is
communicating with
all that is Divine
which is everything.

Too Fast

Too much
too fast
slow down
my lessons are
on fast forward
slow motion is
what I need

Lord, lighten my load
or give me a hand.
Your servant is weary
willing, but tired.
May I rest in Your love
for now.

Apple of Lust

apple of lust

Pull out the thorn of greed
eat not the apple of lust
shoot not the arrow of anger
for only the righteous
walk the path of Light.

Noble?

dancer

Self-mastery is critical
in becoming wise as is
truthfulness, inoffensiveness
and restraint. For surely
he who is jealous, selfish
and deceitful can never be wise.

Who Is Wise?

snail

One is not wise
because he speaks much.
A wise man is silent
knowing the power of words
carefully chosen
and given at the right time.

Grey hair does not make
you wise, nor does tender years
mean there is no wisdom.

Self-mastery is critical
in becoming wise as is
truthfulness, inoffensiveness
and restraint. For surely
he who is jealous, selfish
and deceitful can never be wise.
