Deep Seeded

 

img_2239-1

A seed was planted long ago
Watered by the thinking
Some resentments hard to let go
Giving this seed living
Guiding its growth to the light
Pulled back by the darkness
Ego, hate, and selfish pride
Keeping this seed heartless
Time to go back to its roots
Find out what it needs
If we want to bear good fruit
Love and accept this seed.

A sunny day in Houston, TX from the Buffalo Bayou.

You see the mess
So far away
Assume it’ll never reach you
But then one day
It comes to say
Hello, I’m here to meet you

Your heart may feel
For a little while
The empathy appears
And then its gone
You’re back to dawn
Forgotten yesteryears

But what is real
Is lived by those
The mess on the other side
Without a home
No place to roam
Same dream when they close their eyes

So please remember
You may be well
But many may feel cursed
Be kind and show
Much love and know
The roles could be reversed

Hello, Sunrise.

Hello, sunrise.
Thank you for showing up again.
I’ve waited all night long for you.
Although, I know the morning will come, I always hope the night rushes to meet you.
Because when it does, it reminds me my day is here and I can choose to live as you do,
illuminating the entire sky.

What will you do?


What will you do with all that heart?
Will you pursue passions?
Will you create art?
Will you give it freely?
Will you lock it away?
Will you let the world harden it?
Will you keep love at bay?

Whatever it is, you decide to do,
The heart is strong, the heart is you.

Another Sunrise Picture….


….yes…based on your perspective, that’s all it is; but maybe it should serve as a reminder that we have been fortunate enough to wake up to a new day. That life is moving, it’s changing, it’s inviting. That your darkness will be illuminated with light if you just OPEN your eyes….and that we are all exposed to the same sky, on this “blue dot”, two-thirds of the way out from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy….orbiting this sun….in another sunrise picture.
