Everything

“I don’t come from much…”

You come from the dry desert
And summer rains
You come from tree canopies
And sun rays
You come from wild flowers
Through concrete
You come from daylight
At midnight’s arctic
You come from the color of leaves
In the hills of fall
You come from deep oceans
And the wave’s call
You come from thunder rolls
And lightning strikes
You come from the new moon
In the night sky

You, my beautiful one, come from
EVERYTHING

Change is…


…A beautiful thing

The pull of the old
The first bloom of Spring
The letting it go
The holding on tight
The winter’s first snow
The love at first sight
The blow of a candle
The colors of leaves
The turn of the handle
The tide of the seas
The pain of goodbye
The light of the sun
The stars in the sky
The life that’s begun

Change is
A beautiful thing

“Each Moment Has an Unrealized Dimension of Beauty That Only Your Perspective Can Liberate” – Bryant McGill

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

“Live in the moment…” they always say – but for many of us, this action is fleeting. We become conscious of this for a little while and then fall back to our daydreams and our thoughts of yesterdays.

Bouncing from our hopes for the future to the memories of the past.  This is our perspective.

As we daydream, however, there exists a place waiting to be seen. It’s sitting in the blind spot of our anxieties. The anxieties about what we have planned for tomorrow and the mistakes from yesterday we do not want to repeat.

This place is a place of realization, a place of peace, a place free of the illusion of what could be and what was. This place is each present moment – the awareness of what IS.

How beautiful to be aware of what IS.

To be breathing, to be alive, to be conscious. To understand both yesterday and tomorrow only exists as an idea in our minds. To be able to experience what IS without having to dig it up in a memory or to picture it in a daydream of the future.

It is here, it is now, it is waiting to be seen and liberated. Open your eyes and greet this gracious reality. It is always there ready to be admired, embraced, and realized.

Rose Bush

I planted a rose bush
So I may admire
the flowers that bloom
and the love that’s transpired
but from this rose bush
there are thorns that grow
thus, be humble when loving
the entirety of a rose

To be a woman

 To be a woman
With soft curves
And a gentle heart
Seductive glances
A Creation of art
With strength to endure
The labor of life
And compassion to fill
A dark room with light
With a beautiful smile
Of an innocent girl
With passionate dreams
To keep changing the world
