A Poem of the Heart

Photo by Josh Massey on Unsplash

The Heart

Waves roll in
Time rolls out, and
Lives planned out
Play out

And, are carried out

Without noticing, the
Enjoining
That surrounds the interjoining
Of the multiple sounds

That became One

Under the sunlight
Which was quite a sight
Of majestic light, and

Now, under the moonlight

Darkness becomes lighted fancy
Dancing and prancing
Along the ridges
Of foamy white

Which now rest along

The outlet
Of rising tides, and
Forgotten memories of that night
Which hold a sacred place

In our hearts delight

Have a magnificent week everyone.

A Presence Poem

Presence

You look out
And into the fray

Beholden to

Tomorrow’s worry
And yesterday’s scurry

Like a glimmer in front
Eyes see out, and

Touch

Ever so gently
Yet also intently

Searching and not
Yet finding, that
Which is already

Perching

Right there
In front of you

Shift the attention

And let the senses
Draw inward toward
The light and watch, as
A real delight commences

Clarity of Mind

Refocused
Watches in wonder
At all of the blessings

Expressing themselves
Right now, and
Once again, you see

That which is

Sparkling and dancing
In the light, which is also
Loving in delight, and

All at once, you are
Amazed at all of
The daylight

Now that was fun. Have a great evening.

An Aliveness Poem

Photo by Hamish Dowson on Unsplash

Aliveness

What is that sound
On the ground, or

Is it in the air
Soft and fair

Look here, and
There, for
Something

Is always moving

Sprouting, and shifting
Ever-changing
And even transforming

Though static
They all seem

Don’t be fooled by
Senses outward
For within
is the calmness,
which is your eternal bliss

What is whimsical
Is mystical,
Just like you

A beauty to behold

Faith and love
Evermore

Be like that
Which you see

Inside

The light moves
And shapes, your
Every experience

That aliveness
Which is, and
Has been, and
Will always be
Inside you

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

A Wisdom Poem

Wisdom

What do you see
When you look in my eyes

Of times gone by
Or times yet to be

Questions you have
About that which was grand

And though they are
Present
Please don’t forget

A full life-lived
Knows

That with what was
grand and noble
Comes also, the
Drab and ignoble

Love knows, and
Embraces both

For love we are
Forevermore,
Trying for something more
Is nevermore

For Sadje’s prompt WDYS #52.

Be well everyone.

A Blogger’s Diary 10/18/20: Sunday Night Reflection

Photo by Casey Horner on Unsplash

As we leave this week behind, and prepare for the week ahead, I wanted to take a moment to thank each of you for the wonderful posts, comments, conversations, and interactions these past 6-months.

I’ve found a wonderful community, filled with light and love, and I appreciate each of you.

I’ve been more drawn to poems this past week, so it is only fitting to complete this week with one more. Here then, is

The Light

In times of chaos and
Fickle fancy roars

Stand inside and
Protect the light

Given us to protect
So please take time to reflect

Upon That which is known
Within the unknown

Seemingly two, yet
Is really One

Of many mysteries

Founded upon a legacy
Granted to each of us
Not taken for

Bear in mind and
Mind
That which is seen

For the light is bright
Which comes at night

Though day breaks
In splendid
Created wonder

Of all that is known
And unknown
Both
Come to the light
At the end of their night

Have a wonderful week.

A Love Poem

Photo by Jeremy Thomas on Unsplash

Trees laid bare
Scorched on high
Winter’s calm
Is in your palm

Wait and see
To be not free

Cast about
In times of doubt

That one can be
Like a tree
Forevermore
And never more

Be one in line
In times of strife

Let loves guide be
Prickled and free

When last we met
Twas a silhouette

Of times gone by
Please do try

To understand my heart
Cloved depart
Of love light lasting
With leaves contrasting

Views of such delight
Fancy of life

Be more my love
And know thy glove
Of two and one
Will stand in union

Have a wonderful Sunday.

A Blogger’s Diary 10/17/20: On the Miraculous and Mundane, and A Poem

Photo by Sorasak on Unsplash

Alright, so I’ve also been reflecting upon the miraculous and mundane this week. Yep. True. Why?

Well, there was a time when the mundane was all I really saw. Pretty cynical. Yep. Also truth.

And, it is important for me to keep this truth in my awareness.

You can at one moment see the mundane in the miraculous, just as you can see the miraculous in the mundane. Yep. It is really all about what we choose to see.

Meaning that it is all about how we know ourselves; know and feel our truth. Really.

When we know and love ourselves, we see the miraculous everywhere, and love in everything and everyone. It works that way. Fun and beautiful.

Alright, a poem, here we go.

The Miraculous and Mundane

Blade of grass, mundane
in one moment
And miraculous in another

Just as a crack

in the pavement, miraculous
in one moment
And mundane in another

The viewer views, the
Creator creates, the
Miraculous or the mundane

We view and see, yet
what we see
is not always
all there is to be seen

Look closely within
And ask the questions needed, to
Set yourself free, upon,
and within this life

You can view the
miraculous everywhere,
And in everything

Remember

The miraculous is always there
awaiting your return, and
inner-knowing

Though you may think it gone
mundaneness everywhere
look again with new eyes, and
you shall see
that which was always there
and will always be

That was fun.

As you enjoy your weekend, be on the lookout for the miraculous. Take a look around and notice. Notice all of the miraculous within you, and around you. You are all, after all, miraculous human beings. Just as you are.

Have a wonderful weekend.

A Time Poem

Photo by Adrien King on Unsplash

I continue to reflect upon time. It has been, is, very present for me. We create so much of our lives around time. Yet, paradoxically, time is, as I wrote about in The Social Construction Series Part 5: The Social Construction of Time, a social construction. Hm.

Alright, how about a time poem? Here we go.

Time is not
What you think it is
Fleeting and everlasting

A paradox
Like all life

Happiness and sadness
Are just the same
We think we know them

Yet yearn for more

More time, more happiness
And then less
Less time, less sadness

And where do we look?

We look outside, into the world
For the answers, and
Come up shy

It is not found there
Someone said

Though we know this truth
We run away from the answer
Hidden inside

It must be out there
I can touch it, smell it, taste it, feel it

We believe in it and
run after it
Yet all the time it was
right there
waiting patiently for our return

Have a lovely evening, and be well.

From Within and Without – A Friday Poem

Photo by Delaney Van on Unsplash

Within

we go and there is light

yet without we face

in troubled delight

that light

waxes and wanes

as we begin to believe

without

is what is right

though there is a knowing

deep inside

that the light within

is even more right

no waxing, no waning

constant

and ever-friendly

so

before you go

to sleep this night

remember

that the light within

is ever bright

and

is a part of your birthright.

Be well, have a wonderful weekend.

A Blogger’s Diary 10/3/20: On Nature and Humanity

It’s almost the rainy season in the Pac Northwest, so getting out in the sunshine today was a must. Was gorgeous out today, as you will see in the pics below.

While I was hiking this poem occured to me. 🙂

Nature’s bounty
Human failings

Separate though
They seem

Inextricably connected
They are one

A mirror

Of both bounty
And failing

One in breath
One in mind

Two inseparable
Joined in
A hindered hearted delight

Be well this weekend.
