Autumn air

Cool and frosty, Autumn air
Chills the bones beyond compare
Painting pictures icy bright
Nippy winds create a sight

Sun beams warm but I can't feel
All their warmness in this chill
Beautiful streams creating steam
Emerges from the sunlight's seam

Crispy crinkles beneath my feet
Whisper coolness so discreet
Icy images make a parade
Leaving artwork: short displayed

 In my home or when outside
Autumn whispers deep inside
Painting pictures making rhyme
Every season colors time

Look and listen

Sunlight dancing on my  sill
Bringing beauty: calm and still
Warming rays so bright and true
How we love you: yes we do...

Winds are whispering: soft and free
Never know where they  might be..
Carrying messages: far and wide
All is  heard, from deep inside

Flowers blooming; plants are too
Giving energy, it is true
All  united in God's grace
With the universe and its space

Dark descends with coming night
Nothing's clear as in the light
But the sounds and sights unseen
Brings us mystery..all agree

Look and listen; hear and see
All around:  serenity
In the creatures in the air
So much God-ness everywhere

I am here...

Through these storms and all your hurt
I will be here: rest assured
Through these turmoils and unrest
I'll be waiting your request

Know I see it, all your pain
Every heartache all the rain
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can call Me; I am here.

In those moments of surpise
When clouds are blocking all your skies
I am here with Light Divine
Call Me trust Me; you are Mine.

Know I see it: all your pain;
Every heartache, all the rain..
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can all Me; I am here

Friends are fickle; yes it's true
But I'm always a friend for you
Nothing changes Me:  not at all
You can trust I'll hear your call

Know I see it: all your pain;
Every heartache, all the rain..
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can all Me; I am here

Now, at morning; or at night
I am present with My Light
When you call me or cannot
I be watching.. for I am God

Know I see it: all your pain;
Every heartache, all the rain..
I am waiting; yes it's clear
You can all Me; I am here

What are those teardrops in your eyes?

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

Like a downpour from the sky
Droplets flowing from your eye
Tell me secrets without words
Inspire my hands to type in verse

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

In the morning time; it's clear
Sighing sobbing I did hear
Hearts unfolding like a rhyme
Soak the soul and startle time

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

Broken moments kept inside
Tear the heart and stifle pride
Something precious something deep
Echoes through the heart that weeps

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

Let me spend some time with you
Hear your sorrows help you through
Then you'll know as you are known
Love is best when love is shown

What are those diamonds in your eyes
Tiny teardrops small in size
Who has caused them; let me see
I'll release them: set them free

So much tragedy

In those eyes I see
So much tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

Tears are falling down
Splashing all around
Moistening all the air
Raindrops everywhere

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

Bloodshed in the streets
No more inner peace
From that room so high
Many were made to die

In those eyes I see
So much tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

The day after it occured
Eyes are still so blurred
Head is full of pain
Scars inside remain

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

We cannot bring them back
From this horrendous act
Only hearts can heal
From this pain so real

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

With you I will stay
Though, so far away
Hoping time will soothe
Every hurt remove

In those eyes I see
Horror and tragedy
Memories of that day
All was taken away

Oh, Las Vegas...

My heart is breaking and am sighing
As I feel each soul that's dying
Hard to inhale it: labored breathing
Every departing soul:  perceiving

Oh, Las Vegas how much sorrow 
Long the wait until tomorrow
Bodies broken, families crying:
Watching loved ones bruised and dying

Country music riddled with bullets
Changes hope into endurance
From the windows passed a sentence
From a mad man without repentance

Oh  Las Vegas how much sorrow 
Long the wait until tomorrow
Bodies broken families crying
Watching loved ones bruised and dying

Can I cope with this connection
My soul's leaning in that direction..
In the hospitals and their homes too
So much sorrow is coming on through

Oh. Las Vegas, how much sorrow
Long the wait until tomorrow
Bodies broken, families crying
Watching loved ones, bruised dying

In Las Vegas, Early Morn

After midnight cries sound out
"There's a shooter, many shout"
In Las Vegas, early morn
Bullets flew and lives were torn

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

Who'd imagine, this could be
All this bloodshed that we see
Lovely city soaked in blood
From the rooftops came this flood

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

People running here and there
Screaming, crying, everywhere
Young ones, old ones, in between
Chaos created: Las Vegas' scene

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

For the families suffering now
Healing moments I wish somehow
Nothing can undo your  pain
But my prayers with you'll  remain

And we hear it once again
Terror started from within
Heartless things we see
America suffers a tragedy

You will know the miraculous

Touch all the molecules and count all the sand
See every element in the ground where  you stand
Gaze upon the universe and hear all of the sky
Something has been whispered in the clouds passing by

Up in the morning light and down in the earth
Beautifulness is brewing from the moments giving birth
All that is  is before us and everything that is not
Echoes a great mystery: "Some things cannot be bought".

Early in the waking hours and late into the night
Angels are forever here: bringing souls their light
Nothing is ever forever here; but forever is a thing
Take a hold of what is light but flee the evil sting

If you are a earnest soul; seeking  all that  is right
You will know a peacefulness and have unaltered sight
Nothing will persuade you from the  Inner Light within
You will know the miraculous each day that you begin

Look to your heart

Look to your heart I say: Look to your heart:
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

Instead of making peace; we are all making war
We cannot learn to love.. when wrong's what we're looking for
Ideologies are popping up; circulating  around today
They promise happiness; but divide peoples along the way

Look to your heart I say: look to your heart:
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

Protesters line the streets and are holding up their signs
They'll protest what's wrong; but stir up rebellious lines?
We claim we're righting wrongs; we're  equality all the way
Yet, what of those properties, we're destroying every day?

Look to your heart I say; look to your heart
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

There are people in our lives; people along our way
We aren't even noticing them; we don't give them the time of day
But we're all Godfearing souls.. we read the most holy book
Yet, where does it say, my friend..we should be applying such a look?

Look to your heart I say; look to your heart
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

If we're really seeking love; love's what we  need to be
Giving to everyone without any sign of partiality
True greatness isn't ever bought; its not what others give
It comes from within ourselves and rewards how we live..

Look to your heart I say; look to your heart
This wide world of ours, is falling apart

You don't have to carry those burdens alone...

I know that you're hurting; I know how you feel
Things that you're saying..are all of them real
Life sometimes has thrown you the most bitter pill
Memories keep replaying: you're heart feels them still

No, you don't have to carry these burdens alone
Friends are just waiting to lift what you've known
Hardships and heartbreaks can be awfully unfair
Yet friends are forever and willing to share

Time after time you have said your goodbyes
Watched the departures with tears in your eyes
Walking through moments  you can't understand
Heaven's still watching just reach out your hand

No, you don't have to carry these burdens alone
Friends are just waiting to lift what you've known
Hardships and heartbreaks can be awfully unfair
Yet friends are forever and willing to share

There's wisdom in timing; but it isn't yet time
For the love you're awaiting to write you a rhyme
The tear drops, the sighing, the wondering why
Will all become  blossoms when the moment is ripe

No, you don't have to carry these burdens alone
Friends are just waiting to lift what you've known
Hardships and heartbreaks can be awfully unfair
Yet friends are forever and willing to share

The love of God is what it's about

The sun peeks through the sky above:
Whispering secrets, whispering love.
All the world, is still fast asleep:
Only the crickets and possums creep

The wind is sounding so softly today.
Nothing tumultuous is on the way...
Birds are waiting for greater light
To sing their songs of happy sight

Calmness is echoing throughout the land.
Nothing noisy is taking a stand.
Only a screen , of morning fog,
Makes an appearance and makes this blog.

The leaves on trees,that stand around;
Are starting to shake and touch the ground.
Feathery creatures are readying to sing:
Chirping commences and the elements ring.

The songs of morning,  that sound outside
Are inviting us all to consider inside:
The beauties, the wonders, the love of God;
That blesses each moment and path we trod

If we have profited from this scene,
Of morning soliloquies, so serene:
We should want to dance and shout
"The love of God is what it's about"

Oh Puerto Rico, lovely island

The waters have now flooded the Island of Puerto Rico
Maria the awfulest Hurricane has done more than we can know
The people of this nation are now looking to the rest
To assist them and help them: as recovering is their quest

Oh Puerto Rico, lovely island, where have you disappeared?
The waters and the wind storms have done what we have feared
Your nation is now soaked in the Atlantic and Caribbean
The sirens now silenced had warned us of what we're seeing

An ominous sound of silence and the creaking of the buildings
Whisper to the listener... there's a tragedy that's unyielding
Inside the shattered structures and below the shrinking waters
Are memories of a nation that will affect its sons and daughters

Oh Puerto Rico, lovely island, where have you disappeared?
The waters and the wind storms have done what we have feared
Your nation is now soaked in the Atlantic and Caribbean
The sirens now silenced have warned us of what we're seeing

You are not alone there; for, all the world is waiting,
For ways that we can help you; in this dilemma escalating...
Though, you are so inaccessible, to the hands, that want to help you:
We, the world, will rise up and assist you it is true..

Oh Puerto Rico lovely island where have you disappeared
The waters and the wind storms have done what we have feared
Your nation is now soaked in the Atlantic and Caribbean
The sirens now silenced had warned us of what we're seeing

Nobody wins in war

While some people talk about destruction and war
Angels from Heaven are pleading and implore:
Put away this fighting and put away these guns
Death's not the answer to these terroristic runs

Because so many innocents would die in a war
We'd say that we're winning while blood fills earth's floor
If even one person should die out of hate
Torrents would rush out from the Eternal One's gate....

The mighty and furious are aiming to fight
Boasting and promising to make everything right
But pointing your missels and shaking your fists
Would only be stimulants that put everyone at risk...

Because so many innocents would die in a war
We'd say that we're winning while blood fills earth's floor
If even one person should die out of hate
Torrents would rush out from the Eternal One's gate....

The anxious and unstable one is creating a scene
He's pounding his podium.... and appearing so mean
If only we'd see it: the reason for this all
North Korea is struggling in each missel that falls

Because so many innocents would die in a war
We'd say that we're winning while blood fills earth's floor
If even one person should die out of hate
Torrents would rush out from the Eternal One's gate....

The weather we create

Can we not see it and are we still blind:
How all of our actions are affecting mankind
Our hating and fighting; our happiness; our cheer:
Everything's affecting the whole atmosphere

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective when showing our care
Everyone is equal and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it.. what these storms are made of?

The earth from its core; and the sky from its dome
Is shaking and rumbling,while the oceans all roam..
It's not for our punishment; and its not for our death..
It's we, who release, the catastrophes that spread

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective, when showing we care?
Everyone is equal; and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it... what these storms are made of?

The other day, when driving, and thinking unkind
Did we ever consider: how we're able to  unwind..
The bound up brutal energies that  crush all around:
In every single wind storm.. our arguing is found?

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective, when showing we care?
Everyone is equal; and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it... what these storms are made of??

We're, all of us, connected and we're, all of us, all,  one
Whenever one is defeated.the rest of us are undone...
We choose to be happiness or we choose to be fear
But remember our choices affect everyone here...

So why can't we be loving and why can't we share
Why are we so selective, when showing we care?
Everyone is equal; and everyone deserves love
Can we not see it... what these storms are made of??

Have you ever noticed..

Early the hours when the first squirrel appears
Nibbling and jumping and wiggling his ears..
Peering and poking through seeds on the ground
Romping and playing and jumping around..

Softly the breezes are touching the trees
Creatures with feathers will delight us and please
Chirping and singing and looking about
Birds of all colors will sing but not shout

Fluffy white powder puffs are gracing the sky
Storm clouds are missing but soon will say 'hi"
The weather is changing with the energies that loom
Soon we will hear them: the clouds that go "boom".

Have you ever noticed it: this first light of morn
Tried to engage it or watched as it's borne..?
Truly its hours; its minutes; and its time:
Is creating some pictures and some verses for rhyme

Creatures remind us of God's love

There's a soothing symphony of crickets gracing this early morn
Sounding out their remedies: they can heal the bruised and torn
Rythmically they are playing..that familiar melody
That echoes through the daylight and wakens you and me.

The insects know their place
They serenade us with their grace
Like the showers from the Heavens above
Creatures remind us of God's love

Like the sounding of  many  cymbals or the ringing of tambourines
A hundred thousand crickets are creating  these soothing scenes
Quieting down,so slowly, as light of dawn ascends
These happy little chirpers, disappear like the passing trends..

The insects know their place
They serenade us with their grace
Like the showers from the Heavens above
Creatures remind us of God's love

All of a sudden, you cannot hear them: the new day is  fully here
Other sounds are now replacing them, till evening; it is clear
Like the changing of the shadows, from the sun so magnificently high
These creatures will sleep, in nature, till daylight becomes the night

The insects know their place
They serenade us with their grace
Like the showers from the Heavens above
Creatures remind us of God's love

We are the storm

Do you not know that we're able to  disrupt the beauty of the  world that we see
That we who are fighting are the ones who are creating this disruptive energy
Though we may be unnable to see it: how we're the stimulus for our own tragedy
All of us are interconnected; and part of our own peace and our own  insecurity

So what are we doing in this world of ours today?
Are we creating the beautifulness or the tragedy along our way
Are we setting up the backdrop that will lower down from the heights above
And release to us the energies we have created from our hatred or our love

The mountains, they shutter, and the winds are all blowing all around
Hurricanes and earthquakes and catastrophes are making known their sound
Fires are breaking out and the oceans are taking leave from their watery place
Are we not able to understand how we are  the instigators of all this disgrace

So what are we doing in this world of ours today?
Are we creating the beautifulness or the tragedy along our way
Are we setting up the backdrop that will lower down from the heights above
And release to us  the energies we have created from our hatred or our love

Talk to the plants and see how quickly they  respond to attention that you give
If you become negligent: they will give up on their own desire to live
So it is with our own energies that we  disperse in every time and place:
Kindness and goodness  carry peacefulness will arguing disbands the human race

So what are we doing in this world of ours today?
Are we creating the beautifulness or the tragedy along our way
Are we setting up the backdrop that will lower down from the heights above
And release to us  the energies we have created from our hatred or our love

Florida headlines

The windy storm Irma hit Florida today
In this beautiful state  she was having her sway
Spinning and churning and covering it all:
Angels all  gasped at the sound of her squall.

Buildings were toppled and  houses fell in
Neighborhoods sank in the whirl of her wind
Storm after storm spun out of her waves
Our dear sister state, Florida, was left in a daze

The quieting has brought us to a devastating cry
From those who remained and breathed their last sigh
The coastlines were flooded and changed how we see
The dear state of Florida ripped up by tragedy














Friday, September 8, 2017

And earth shouts out

Be still and listen, to this changing  air
Sighs and soundings are everywhere
Floodings are found in desert spaces
Quakes are shaking so many places

And earth shouts out what angels sing:
God is speaking through everything

The oceans  shake, beneath the wind
They roar and rumble, while coming in
Coasts drop off and they are seen no more
Hearts are broken, and are wounded sore..

And earth shouts out what angels sing:
God is speaking through everything

Bitter rivals raise   their fists in war
Missles fly and rest on earthen floor
Peoples wonder what this can mean:
Sights are clear but the truth unseen ?

And earth shouts out what angels sing;
God is speaking through everything

Time to change while time's still here
Listen long; make haste to hear
Heaven is speaking through Mother Earth
Return, return to your soul's rebirth

And earth shouts out what angels sing:
God is speaking through everything

Run from her now...


Irma is approaching the US shore
Carrying winds and so much more
Having the memory of Harvey's wrath
We should be worrying about her path

Water and flooding and a great wide wind
Irma  is coming and is about to begin
Destruction and terror and upset she'll bring
Nothing can withstand her poisonous sting

Run from her now for there is still time
Pitiful the words that'll follow this rhyme
Relentless and forceful she will proceed
Creating great havoc and tragedy...

Love is what's needed

Clear out your heart and make room for love
Showered like manna from the Heavens above
No room for hatred, for jealousy, for war:
Love is what's needed to settle the score..

Bring out your  kindness; put away the hate
People don't like it: this news, as of late..
Threats of the nuclear; and floodings galore:
Love is what's needed to settle the score..

Politics is all dirty; news is on fire
Things go unnoticed and life is so dire
Arguing, fighting, gossipping and more..
Love is what's needed to settle the score

Drenched in rain...

Waters rising all around
Up the streets and right back down
Rows of people on the run
Fleeing what the storm has done

Caring people cross the way
Lifting, helping:   night and day
Desperate moments, sparkle bright;
When  these angels come in sight

Harvey's wrath has hit them all
Older, younger, great and small:
But the beauty, of   this pain:
Are these heroes drenched in rain

We all thank you: you, who care
Weathering dangers everywhere
Reaching out and losing sleep
Lifting folks from waters deep

Soon the waters will go down
And the outcome will be found
Homes and lives all torn apart
Time for love and collective heart...

Imprints of the Almighty

Skies open up with the glow of the sun
Beauty and hope fall out on everyone
Blueness and clarity and lovely warm air
Storms are now passing; there's peace everywhere

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

Rising up quickly we rush into day
Cooking and prepping and off on our way
Driving through traffic and taking in smog
We hardly remember to pray in this fog..

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

The day lingers on: our minds fill with stress
Too many the worries and concerns to address
Hurrying from work and back in the race
We pass by so many but what of God's grace?

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

Each day we continue from morning to night
We have our routines and our goals are in sight
But have we forgotten or have we not seen
Who we keep missing in our daily routine?

Oh wonderful world at the break of each day
So much of the Eternal is passing our way
In beauty and  awesomeness and sounds all around
Imprints of the Almighty are definitely found

The waters are rising

Tears from the Heavens.. tears in my eyes:
Rivers are rising; this isn't a guise
People are crying and people are in need:
Stuck in the waters: will they recede?

Heaven, Oh Heaven, hear now our prayer
The waters are rising; they  flood everywhere
People are clinging; the people all cry
Waking they see it: the rivers, they rise...

Would that they'd heed us; would that they wait..
The people in panic, will not hesitate:
They rush through the waters: they try to escape
Despite all the warnings, through waters they trape

Heaven, Oh Heaven, hear now our prayer
The waters are rising; they  flood everywhere
People are clinging; the people they cry
Waking they see it: the rivers, they rise...

Don't forget peoples ....don't forget prayer
God is all powerful and He's everywhere
Miracles can happen and  miracles will
Rise up before you; if you remember Him still

Heaven, Oh Heaven, hear now our prayer
The waters are rising; they  flood everywhere
People are clinging; the people they cry
Waking they see it: the rivers, they rise...

Stormy night of fear

Hurricane Harvey

Voices in the wind
Cry out from deep  within
A stormy night of fear
Has told us: Harvey's here.

Rough and breezy night
Devastation's in sight
No way to walk or run
Destruction has begun

The news is all alive
But no one else inside
Can call or shout at all
The winds have begun to brawl

Power outages rage
Headlines fill the page
Harvey's path so cruel
Continues his ruthless rule..

The daylight will surprise
And fill  our weary eyes;
With tears and disbelief:
This storm is such a thief..

To those who will remain
In wind and pounding rain
Be safe and be you well
There's stories you will  tell..

In all this uncertainty
That you'll  witness and will see
Remember that:  there's  One
Who rules the sea and Sun..

Harvey's arrival

The storm, it turned, towards the southern coast
And the winds and rains became frightening to most
Like warriors. who battled. there were some. who did stay:
Fighting the forces ...they were all washed away

And Harvey he came with the mightiest wind
He roared and he blew and he turned once again  
Flooding the beaches and shattering the homes
This hurricane demolished the safest of zones..

While people were fleeing the others did stay
Some were incredulous and laughed all the way
Pounding the barriers and uprooting the trees
Harvey devoured the earth and its breeze......

And Harvey he came with the mightiest wind
He roared and he blew and he turned once again  
Flooding the beaches and shattering the homes
This hurricane demolished the safest of zones..

The forecaster predicted but never could see
The outcome so treacherous how could it all be
These waters so bountiful: now a new grave
For mass groups of people who rode in its wave

And Harvey he came with the mightiest wind
He roared and he blew and he turned once again  
Flooding the beaches and shattering the homes
This hurricane demolished the safest of zones..

The final trumpet

I heard the mighty trumpet sound
From the Heavens and all around
Songs of hope and lasting grace
Filled the earth and every place

While the earth and waters shook
Spiritual beings held a book
From its pages,  words were read
And all the peoples: they were fed....

But there's some who did refuse:
Choosing darkness: they'd abuse
All the light souls, all around..
In their hearts no truth was found...

Countless days and endless fight
Set the Almighty's plan, in sight:
To cleanse the world, to heal again
Every captive would be free from sin..

All that's wonderful, all the shine
Comes from One, the One Divine
But  there's those who do mislead:
Promising Heaven is our  greed...

Come now,  see it, come today
Countless angels are here to say:
Heaven is waiting, waiting for you
Time is ticking, what will you do...?

Behind the curtain....

Let the silence of the morning dance inside your heart
It's rythm is so beautiful its wonderfulness a way to start
So much awesomeness is inside it: this predawn early show
Without the help of media we have all we need to know

Oh hear the quiet stirrings of creatures in the trees
The echo of many crickets in the softly blowing breeze
Something about the newness that comes at break of day
Can move the avid listener with some lyrics for the way

The calmness and the softness of the slowly rising sun
Warms the early riser with a wamth that's not undone
The rays with their many miracles are riding through the air
Each one is carrying an energy that can transform us all with care.

Resting upon the greenery, a screen made up of  a cloud
Speaks to us of mysteries, we have never heard out loud...
The greatness of  the majestic, who  aren't needing a hurrah
They're happy being the messengers of One who gives us all

Look outside your windows, before you start your day:
What do you see before you, what does the world have to say?
Are there any moving creatures, any birds that peck and dance
Tell me, if your willing, are there squirrels out there by chance?

Take time for a few more minutes, and hear what you can hear..
Before your put on your tv; what says the atmosphere?
Are there any sounding creatures, any birds in a symphony
Or is it completely silent with a openness like the sea...

Today is yours and always ..but what will you do today?
Will you coast through it uncaring; or notice everything on the way?
Will you make of every moment, every second and hour too:
An endless sign of gratitude, for the One who created you?

We hardly see....

Green and yellow, blue and white
Colors created by the Lord of Light
Black and orange and pink and grey
Are beautiful colors along the way...

But we who see;  we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; and everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes  Heaven is found

Mountains, rivers, fields all gold
Echo the greatness of mysteries untold
Creatures, cosmos, quiet rocks too
Speak to us secrets, so infinitely true

But we who see; we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes Heaven is found

Nighttime, daytime, in between
Holds an Immensity so unseen
Hours and minutes and seconds each day
Whisper the messages God would say

But we who see; we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes Heaven is found

So we're challenged we're invited too
To listen intently to see what's true
Beyond the media and clouds of lies'
God will be waiting with His Surprise..

But we who see; we hardly see
Beauty is everywhere: in you and me
Everything created; everyone around
Holds a Divine-ness: yes Heaven is found

The angel weeps...

I heard the angels call out my name
For  darkness was ruling the night and day
The war of the mightiest was ruining all  souls
And Light was rejected by the many: I suppose

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

The troubled, they troubled: both night and day
And created a whirlwind along the way
They stirred up the elements and made a war
Within their own nation: they removed its floor

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

Instead of the loving that they should show
The created were fighting and turmoil did grow
Lashing out venom, that would poison the world
Hatred and prejudice together were unfurled

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

The leaders with power were acting like night
Instead of like beacons who shine off pure light
Machinery were replacing the hands that would toil
And clouds made from numbers, gathered the spoil

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

The Heavens, they opened, and out came a roar
"My people, my people what is this all for..
This fighting, this warring, this spreading of grief
Has shown you have lost it: your faith and belief"

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

This poem, it is ending; but not so its source
We're a nation divided by the evil one's force
Were better than this nonsens, this hatred these lies
Let us return back to unity and bring hope to our skies

And the angels cried  with a mighty  voice
The Heavens, they wept, at the collective ones' choice
Too many  the quarrelers the haters the wrong
Leading a people into a darkness so long

Let out your praises...

Calmness envelops the emerging of dawn
The earth she is silent the breezes they yawn
All in the minerals, the elements the trees
Silence is speaking, with the intention to please

Clouds, with their movements, are waking the sky
Artisically, they gather; in fluffs, they pass by..
Molecules and atoms and invisbleness too;
Combine with the moisture and fall down as dew

Chirping and humming and romping around,
Creatures awaken and break out in sound...
Carefree and happy and oblivious to all:
Plantlets and animals and insects, all call...

Quiet your beingness and silence your mind
The  morning will greet you as moments unwind
Hear what is hearable and all that is not
Daylight will show you what cannot be bought..

Sing with the angels and sing with a song
A hymn of great gratitude: no need to be long.
Simple and perfect and true as your heart
Let out your praises of God when you start.

We are meant to be: so happy and free

Green are the leaves, that whisper in the wind..
The breezes encourage them, again and again:
To dance and  to sing and to be truly free;
The same, they sing, to you and me...

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be to be
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

The creatures, outside, they dance they do..
United to nature, they move on through..
Without the fuss, that we all can know:
The plantlets and creatures continue to grow

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

What makes us so different as human kind
Is our ability to think and use our mind
Would that we would use it like we know we should
The world would be much better: we know it would

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

We can turn on the TV  and  see the hate
People are fighting and are so irate
Cursing and fussing and hurting each other
Can we not see it: dear sister and brother??

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

There is still some time to amend our ways
To get it right, to salvage some days...
But if we're not careful and refuse to love:
We'll begin to see action from the good God Above

For we are meant to be, so happy and free
To love and to laugh and to be.. to be..
Yes, that is what we are living for: 
To give and to live and to love some more

So stop, stop, stop...

Why can we not all start loving each other
We are  without exception: sisters and brothers
Countries and cultures and races may collide
The spirit within us can stop this divide

So stop stop stop this warring this hating
This endless division and ruthless debating
Why are we doing this and why can't we love
Enough is enough: our Father's above..

The violence continues the coverage we see
The networks are airing it all continually
People are fighting and people are irate
Who can come rescue us from all of this hate..

So stop stop stop this warring this hating
This endless division and ruthless debating
Why are we doing this and why can't we love
Enough is enough: our Father's above..

The tears they are falling from Heaven above
Angels are weeping because we can't love
It's terribly horrendous and terribly a shame
We who are fighting are one and the same

So stop stop stop this warring this hating
This endless division and ruthless debating
Why are we doing this and why can't we love
Enough is enough: our Father's above..

We are one if we are wise...

All the creatures were made free
Made by One who can always see
All our beings and all our lives
We are one if we are wise..

All the hatred and all the war
Is not what we're  created for
But for the beautiful lovely ties
We are one if we are wise

In the enjoyment of our homes
Creativeness sings her lovely tones
And in the employment life provides
We are one if we are wise..

Giving, caring, and being kind
Is what makes us all Divine
For on earth or in the skies
We are one if we are wise.

Thunderstorms

See the rain, it's coming down
And the wind is blowing round
Thunder claps and lightning too
Creates a storm for me and you

All the creatures hide away
Stormy weather's here today
Time to think and stay inside
Too much happening there outside..

Wind is howling loud out there
Clouds are crowding everywhere
Something's in the atmosphere
All earth's anguish we can hear

Pitter patter becomes a shower
And the downpour's carrying power
Like the rush of roaring wind
Air is circling round again

Sit and listen, it is  great:
Gushing floods, from Heaven's gate..
Rushing to the earth around:
In the breezes,we hear sound..

Poetic proverbs

Before the morning's underway
And the busy-ness has its way
Pause awhile and be so still
Let the silence teach your will

When the morning star does shine
And it's speaking: don't decline
The invitation and the plea,
Heaven sends to you and me...

Step apart from all the noise,
And let the calmness guide your choice
Being different, is okay,
Don't let evilness have its way...

Close your ears to hateful pleas,
And be the same when no one sees:
Pure in heart and mind and soul;
Heaven's still a realistic goal

Though the world would have you hate;
Don't give in or have debate
Let the Light,of Love Sincere:
Guide your actions far and near..

When your tempted in your belief
Be you strong against the thief
Who would rob you from your grace
And put confusion in its place

Stand up strong for in all you do
Be a beacon: shine on through...
When the world is running wrong
Point the way, and sing your song

No more doubting no more fear
Find your strength in One who's near
Morning noon or darkest night
He's your Answer He's your Light

Morning's song

Put your hands up in the air
Fill the Heavens ...everywhere
Sky.. so blue.. and bright and clean
God is everywhere ..though unseen

Touch the petals, of each flower;
Hear the roaring lion's power...
All the animals, rise to sing:
God is present in everything...

Mountains great and valleys low,
Join the Heavens and earth below...
Grass, so green,and soothing too
Tells us daily that God is true

Morning noon and darkest night
In the tunes from birds in flight
Sounds of greatness and the Divine
Tell us all : we are His Shrine..

Listen now or later on
You will hear the Heavens yawn
In the whispering of a mite
God is echoing, He is Light..

If we could take a moment

Look outside your home and see what you can see
Before you start your bustle or become busy like the bee
Hear what's out there singing in the breezes and the trees:
The flowers and the plantlets and the tiniest no one sees

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment, we would see all this for sure;
But, often times, we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

Sitting inside the traffic the noises are surely loud
Bumper to bumper traffic can be more invasive than a crowd.
Yet even within this craziness, we can look up high to see
A softness in the Heavens that is displayed for you and me

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment we would see all this for sure
But often times we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all  the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

While all of our mind is busy with the burdens of our day
And work is piled upon us we without a second to look away...
If we can find that moment that breath of air serene
We might hear a whispering rumble of the One who goes Unseen

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment we would see all this for sure
But often times we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

What schedule can be so regimented so piled up and so set
That we cannot pause to ponder and acknowledge we're truly blessed
For the minutes of every hour and the seconds of every day
Are ambassadors from the Heavens and they have so much to say

For all around us is a beauty and a loveliness so pure
If we could take a moment we would see all this for sure
But often times we're running and we're speeding through our day
We miss all of the lovely  messages that the universe has to say..

Warnings

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The night was all darkness and the day was unclear
Storms were approaching from what I could hear
The forecast was  ominous;  the atmosphere ripe
A mighty mighty windstorm was coming tonight..

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The trees, were all bending; the earth it did shake
Tremors and rumbles, preceded a quake
The skies were all darkness; the air was all  thick
Within my own chambers, I whispered and hid

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The machines were all rumbling and bombs did explode
The future was present in a mystical mode
People were fighting for reasons unknown
Something was happening:  my spirit  was shown

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

The future was mingled within the present its clear
Warnings from Heaven will come for all here.
We have it within us to ward off this plight
It comes in a vision to give us some sight

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw..

So let us start loving while loving,  we can
Giving to each other without malice in hand
Sharing and caring and all that is good
Let us start doing this: we know that we should

I opened my eyes and I finally saw 
The Omnipotent Creator, the Giver of all
He spoke to my spirit, He filled me with awe
I opened my eyes, and I finally saw.

And today we celebrate

           For two dear people 
who will  celebrate their anniversary..
          tomorrow


When I said to you, "I do"
I was only thinking of you
You and I together
Our life as one forever

And today we celebrate
Our glorious wedding date
We join again once more
Our hearts forever more

More than a decade ago
We solidified this, you know
And it seems like yesterday
You and I were celebrating this day

And today we celebrate
Our glorious wedding date
We join again once more
Our hearts forever more

We embrace each night and day
Committed in every way
Loving each other, it is true
With one unending "I love you"

And today we celebrate
Our glorious wedding date
We join again once more
Our hearts forever more

Before the break of dawn
Or when the moonlight's gone
We've been here for each other
We are each other's buffer

And today we celebrate
Our glorious wedding date
We join again once more
Our hearts forever more

Take the dagger from my heart

This is not about me...

Take the dagger from my heart
As you're leaving and depart
Remember how I always cared
Made the time and freely shared..

Now,you tell me, that you're done:
A temper tantrum.. then you run
A little thing, along the way:
Makes you shout and run away?

Take the dagger from my heart
As you're leaving and depart
Remember how I always cared
Made the time and freely shared..

Would that you would hear me out
And not run off with such a pout
Everything could turn out fine
If you'd listen: you'd be mine

Take the dagger from my heart
As you're leaving and depart
Remember how I always cared
Made the time and freely shared..

Everything is not a game
Love is more than just a name
Taking time  to decompress
Could have saved us from this mess.

Take the dagger from my heart
As you're leaving and depart
Remember how I always cared
Made the time and freely shared..

Tomorrow morn when you're alone
And you recall the love I've shone
You will want to make amends
And return to just being friends

Take the dagger from my heart
As you're leaving and depart
Remember how I always cared
Made the time and freely shared..

Just because you can't be right
Doesn't mean you must take flight..
Sometimes we must let it go
Compromise and heal the soul..

Take the dagger from my heart
As you're leaving and depart
Remember how I always cared
Made the time and freely shared..

When you're sitting all alone
Feeling mad and cold as stone
Remember that  it was I who wanted more
You got mad and slammed the door

Morning muse......

Crickets humming so so sweet
Morning hears them and they meet
Quietly rising, gentle sun
Shines its warmth on everyone.

Soft the radiance, blue the sky
Birds, already, are passing by
Chirps and tweets and lovely song
Invite us all to sing along

Green the grasses and the trees
That soothe the eyes and appease...
Senses waking and we see
That God is good to you and me

Count the moments: one, two, three ....
How many seconds,pass and flee?
Hours and days and month's pass by:
Who can measure earth or sky?

When the day is bright and clear
Or the night is drawing near
Some there are who'll never sleep
They are here to watch and keep

Finally when the day is done
And the darkness covers the sun
We will rest to rise again
Will we see the dawn begin?



Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Stop for a moment...

Touch the sky and feel the air
See God's beauty, it's  everywhere
Hear the sparrows and see them fly
All of God's beauty is passing us by

The days come quickly, the nights do too
So much activity for us to do
Yet in all we do and in all we say
Beauty is calling us to come away:

A soundless vapor and a breath of air
Is whispering a mystery,  here and there
The tiniest element and the grandest sea
Are all an echo of God's Great Divinity

So silence your scurrying and still your feet
Take a moment to savor,  a moment to eat
The delicate morsels of heart and mind
That silence has brought us but shopping can't find


Monday, July 24, 2017

He is both our Mommy and our Dad..

Every single cell and molecule, every breath of amazing air..
Everything that is around us, and everything that's everywhere
The highest boldest boulder and the mightiest roaring sea
Everything that is and will be.. is always  echoing to you and me:

That God is always loving  and that God is always here
He's always interceding; whenever we need Him, He's near
He's present in all  our good times; He's present in all the bad
He's here forever to help us... He is both our Mommy and our Dad...

So let us become more observant and be more faithful and more kind
Let us be careful to reflect that intelligence that made our mind
Let us be joyful in all of our giving and be quiet with all of our pride
Let us be the ones who aren't afraid to tell the world and all outside

That God is always loving  and that God is always here
He's always interceding; whenever we need Him, He's near
He's present in all  our good times; He's present in all the bad
He's here forever to help us... He is both our Mommy and our Dad...

Whenever you're happy or grieving, whenever you're awake or asleep
Whenever you see the sunrise or the shadows of night that creep
Whenever you're speaking or singing, whenever you're silent or still
Whenever you are conscience or able..be ready to share this with skill:

That God is always loving  and that God is always here
He's always interceding; whenever we need Him, He's near
He's present in all  our good times; He's present in all the bad
He's here forever to help us ...He is both our Mommy and our Dad...

With a bond that never breaks

Before the hours can become noisy
before the day time has ever begun
I hear all the universe, she is speaking:
the creatures and plantlets, one by one
They are whispering with voices unaltered;
with energies, so peacefully serene..
Before all the world can wake and become frazzled;
 The Canvas of Life in her purity is seen

So we sing with the world that is now waking
We dance with the rhythm that it makes
We move with the plantlets that are now shaking
We're connecting with a bond that never breaks...

At a distance, the sun paints all the horizon,
with its beams so beautifully gold..
The earth, she's glowing  with a radiance;
that no jeweler has ever captured or sold
The created, right here or at a distance;
the cosmos, and the universe and our soul
Speak with the energies that are within us:
each one, so different, but having one goal ..

So we sing with the world that is now waking
We dance with the rhythm that it makes
We move with the plantlets that are now shaking
We're connecting with a bond that never breaks...

Like a gift that has been carefully packaged,
or a note that is written with love
The Creator has entrusted us with this mission:
this mandate from His  Portal Above
That we would cherish and bless one another,
 that we should look after each other with care
We should be striving to be more loving and reflective,
of everything our Good God chose to share

So we sing with the world that is now waking
We dance with the rhythm that it makes
We move with the plantlets that are now shaking
We're connecting with a bond that never breaks...

Dear Politicians....

Why can't we .. just get along?
That's the reason for this song: 
So much violence, so much hate..
People fighting: all irate

TV News Lights up the screen
Words are violent and so mean
Instead of loving, we all swear
There's a reason not to care..?

Why can't we ..just get along?
That's the reason for this song: 
So much violence, so much hate..
People fighting: all irate

On our media day by day
Awfulness is on display
Picking prodding disgusting news
Tiring everyone: gives the blues

Why can't we all just get along?
That's the reason for this song: 
So much violence, so much hate..
People fighting: all irate

Left side, right side, in between:
Political nonsense on the screen;
How much longer must we bare,
All this bickering is not fair..

Why can't we..just get along?
That's the reason for this song: 
So much violence, so much hate..
People fighting: all irate

President elect,  is in the seat:
Come together and let us meet...
Rivaling senators, isn't true
We were expecting more from you ....

Why can't we..just get along?
That's the reason for this song: 
So much violence, so much hate..
People fighting: all irate

Solve the poverty, demolish war;
Crush the taxes, we implore;
But this fighting, that we see,
How's it helping you or  me?

Why can't we ..just get along?
That's the reason for this song: 
So much violence, so much hate..
People fighting: all irate

So much noisiness,  so much wrong:
With a nation, that should get along,,,
We're rushing to  help the world: out there
But it's here: that's broken... be aware

Why can't we ..just get along?
That's the reason for this song: 
So much violence, so much hate..
People fighting: all irate

I'm walking away

Know when to walk away!!

You have my number, and you know my name
It isn't a mystery; it's always the same
Why won't you call me; why won't you care
Show me you're willing: "To always be there".

I saw you were typing on Facebook  today
Yet you were insistent: you hadn't a way
To speak for a moment or whisper hello
Something inside says: "let this one go"..

You have my number, and you know my name
It isn't a mystery; it's always the same
Why won't you call me; why won't you care
Show me you're willing: "To always be there".

Too much of the talking; but nothing to show
You whisper: I love you; but how would I know?
You're busier than ever; whenever it's me
Something is brewing and it isn't my tea

You have my number, and you know my name
It isn't a mystery; it's always the same.
Why won't you call me; why won't you care?
show me you're willing: "To always be there".

I tried, with my number, to call you today:
It went to your voicemail; it's always that way..
Yet, blocking my number, I let the phone ring
I never spoke up when you answered that thing..

You have my number, and you know my name
It isn't a mystery; it's always the same.
Why won't you call me; why won't you care?
show me you're willing: "To always be there".

So, why all of this fussing and pretending with me
It's clear what you're doing; it's clear as can be
You're really not truthful: you're just a big scam
I'm walking away now; I'm better, I am...

You have my number, and you know my name
It isn't a mystery; it's always the same.
Why won't you call me; why won't you care?
show me you're willing: "To always be there".

I'm here for you...

I read your heart and saw your hurt:
Pages and pages of things that were.
Your cries were deep; your happiness too:
I saw all this inside of you...

So let Me help and let Me share
That pain your bury with utmost care
I'll hear your cries; I'll heal your hurt
Just give Me all without reserve

The other day, when you were down.
You thought no one cared or was around..
I was right there and I waited to see
If you would remember, to call on Me..

So let Me help and let Me share
That pain you bury with utmost care
I'll hear your cries; I heal your hurt
Just give Me all without reserve

When you were trying; but didn't succeed
You heart was broke; your soul did bleed.
You wept; you wept;  till you could not...
If only you would have called Me, like you ought..

So let Me help and let Me share
That pain you bury with utmost care
I'll hear your cries; I heal your hurt
Just give Me all without reserve

When you were happy and no one cared
You won a contest,  but no one shared..
You felt unloved; but failed to see
I would have joined in; if you called on Me...

So let Me help and let Me share
That pain you bury with utmost care
I'll hear your cries; I heal your hurt
Just give Me all without reserve

I'm here each day;  I'm here each night
I give you all for your delight
If you would call or you would plead
I'd be your all, I'd intercede..

So let Me help and let Me share
That pain you bury with utmost care
I'll hear your cries; I heal your hurt
Just give Me all without reserve

Last night's storm

Like a bombshell shattering upon my roof
The storms were near and were not aloof..
They blew, they shook, they made me fear:
Enormous sounds filled up my ear..

Flashes of lightning, struck here and there:
Their streams, of light, were everywhere.
Battering the ground; and brightening the sky:
Lightning was flashing; it was nearby.

Shaking the earth, with horrendous sound:
The thunder, was boisterous: was all around.
The rooms,, they echoed: they shook and shook..
Conflicting cumulonimbus became sleep's crook..

Beneath all the covers, the cats and I
Waited for storms to slowly pass by..
But one was courageous and boldly did stand:
In the midst of that noisiness: my brave Orion..

Break from the routine...

Before you start your mornings : open up all your doors
Look outside and see it: the beautiful earthen floors;
The skies are bright and golden; the air is there to breathe
Open up your all your curtains: be ready to see : receive

The morning is always waiting the daylight is always there
Just look outside and see it so much wonderfulness everywhere
Why wouldn't you want to feel it; why wouldn't you let it in?
It's only a passing moment and it wont be the same again..

Shut down all of your media and close off all of your phones
For a moment become united with somethings that's not a clone
Be inebriated with the universe be consoled by what you see
Eternity has left its imprint, for the benefit of you and me..

The morning is always waiting the daylight is always there
Just look outside and see it so much wonderfulness everywhere
Why wouldn't you want to feel it; why wouldn't you let it in?
It's only a passing moment and it wont be the same again..

The day will have its moments of the sunshine or the rain
Why not start each morning, with something gloriously,  unmudane..?
The auras are out there shining, dancing upon all the plants:
Why not venture out this morning:  break from the  routine and dance?

The morning is always waiting the daylight is always there
Just look outside and see it so much wonderfulness everywhere
Why wouldn't you want to feel it; why wouldn't you let it in?
It's only a passing moment and it wont be the same again..

We are its light

Make this day special because of what you do
Take a moment today to share some part of you
With someone who is unknown with someone on the way
Be that ray of sunshine that'll brighten up their day

We are the world's ambassadors, we are its light
If we are not shining then all is like night
We have been gifted and we have the grace
To be the world's beacon all over the place..

It'll only take you a moment to say a "how are you"
Or just a couple seconds to create a smile or two
But, if you're not even willing, to do that simple task:
Will you be that person, who'll help whenever asked?

We are the world's ambassadors, we are its light
If we are not shining then all is like night
We have been gifted and we have the grace
To be the world's beacon all over the place..

Today is a new day and today is the day
To turn around selfishness, eliminate hate
We can be inspiring and we can bring hope
Let us begin changing this world and this globe

We are the world's ambassadors, we are its light
If we are not shining then all is like night
We have been gifted and we have the grace
To be the world's beacon all over the place..

What can we do to change our ways?

How long can we keep quiet and refuse to see
The people around us in such misery
We buy and we buy and we walk right by
The people less fortunate than you and I

Oh what can we do to change our ways
It isn't so easy to forget or erase
A life time of living without concern or care:
Today is the day we should become more aware..

There's people beside you who live in hurt
You may not even know it or think they deserve
Some consideration or kindness or some help today
So what will you do and what will you say..?

Oh what can we do to change our ways
It isn't so easy to forget or erase
A life time of living without concern or care:
Today is the day we should become more aware.

That person who's begging over there, you see
Is pretending and plotting so carefully..?
But what if we're wrong and he's not so free
And is working for someone like you and me..?

Oh what can we do to change our ways
It isn't so easy to forget or erase
A life time of living without concern or care
Today is the day we should become more aware.

That person we whisper about: that lazy ole bum,
Who walks with a bottle or lives in a slum
Is  not a reflection but a  tragedy
Where have we failed in this image we see...?

Oh what can we do to change our ways
It isn't so easy to forget or erase
A life time of living without concern or care
Today is the day we should become more aware.

Too often we judge them the people we hate
We have reasons for keeping ourselves irate
With losers and sponges and  unemployed
We condemn them with excuses our anger's deployed

Oh what can we do to change our ways
It isn't so easy to forget or erase
A life time of living without concern or care
Today is the day we should become more aware.

If only we heard it one day in our heart
The message that Jesus proclaimed from the start
Loving and caring and walking our way
He asked us to love and to do it each day

The End....

The sky is shouting out with an ever mighty roar
And the  universe is crawling beneath an ever fiery floor
The world is all afraid as the mountains start to shake
The heavens start to open beneath the catastrophic break

A quietness precedes it like an ominous piercing stare
Angels from the Heavens have been counseling us: beware
The time has finally come now and the sky is all aglow
A hundred thousand star lights lose their gravity: fall below

Like a faulty firework show turning out so wrong
The end will come to all of us like the ending of a song
Pieces falling together to build a frightful terrific end
If only we would be nicer than the world with all its trend

All the many created with their lives now on the line
Watch the course of the Heavens, with their glow and mighty shine
Something about the atmosphere is  crying out to us indeed
If only were were more loving, then this wouldn't eve had to be..

Angels nearby

Their voices are gentle, their voices are sweet
These angels from Heaven, whenever we meet
They come without feathers, they come without glow
These angels we tell us the things we should know

The speak without voices and sing without sound
Yet souls who are listening can hear them around
With utmost protection and lightning rod speed
These guardians from Heaven bring all that we need

It isn't a fable or a far reaching cry
To speak of these spirits who are always near by
For though they aren't popular or on our TV
These spirits inspire us and help us to see...

While my thoughts are giving birth....

The clouds, this morning, are touching ground
An air of mystery is all around
The Heavens, above, are kissing earth
While my thoughts are giving birth

There is a mistiness before my eyes;
And a sense of wonder, creating surprise,...
My soul is lifted by what I see
Beyond the clouds there's infinity..

If  I could gather them into my hand;
And hold them close would i understand:
The beauty, the wonder, these clouds contain..?
I'll never know they won't remain...

And so, I ponder them, with open heart
These mysterious formations: at day's start
Kissing the earth with gentle might
These clouds reach  out and challenge my sight

Are we all truly free?

Today we celebrate independence but are we all truly free
Are there still some groups of people who can't freely be
Blood and sweat were poured out as wars and battles were won
But is the good ole USA protective of everyone?

We see all the lines and the protests, the signs and the banners too;
The movements of the many peoples:reminding us of what to do..
Yet there are so many that are silenced, so many that go unheard
People with the most powerful positions, cattle the rest like a heard

Today we celebrate independence but are we all truly free
Are there still some groups of people who can't freely be
Blood and sweat were poured out as wars and battles were won
But is the good ole USA protective of everyone?'

What about all the many homeless the addictees and the rest
Is there anyone representing the poorest with their request
Is it only for those who are powerful the greatness of this place
When will we see the equality of America's amazing grace?

Today we celebrate independence but are we all truly free
Are there still some groups of people who can't freely be
Blood and sweat were poured out as wars and battles were won
But is the good ole USA protective of everyone?'

Yes we should be happy and participate in the celebrations
We should shoot off fireworks and parade across the nation
But we should also be aware and be constantly reminded
That there are those who are left out in this land so united

Today we celebrate independence but are we all truly free
Are there still some groups of people who can't freely be
Blood and sweat were poured out as wars and battles were won
But is the good ole USA protective of everyone?'

Not to treasure it, is a tragedy...

Breathe it in, while you still can
And see the beauty of this land
All of this, is for you and me
Not to treasure it: is a tragedy..

Way up high or down below
In the vastness or moments so slow
So much wonder, so much to see
Not to treasure it: is a tragedy..

In the peoples and in the plants
In the noon day or nightly dance
So much creativeness so much glee
Not to treasure it: is a tragedy

In the mornings and in the night
In what is manifested: in plain sight
Everything's gifted to you and me
Not to treasure it: is a tragedy

In this second and in this "now"
All God's greatness wrapped up somehow
In a moment  we will will see:
Not to treasure it: is a tragedy...

Approaching storm

Moisture gathers all around
Earth is readying for some sound
Thickening air:  humidity
Tells of storms, that'll come to be..

Creatures romp; but not for long
Song birds silence all their song
Storms approaching: challenging all:
Hear the winds: they howl and call..

Rains are falling, drenching deep
Pouring, pounding as they creep
Soothing,sounding all around
In their downpour peace is found

So the weather comes and goes
First there's rain then rainbows
Colorful signs of hot and cold
God is present in all we're told

There is a Greatness....

In the breezes, and in the flowers,
In the air and summer showers
In the molecules and in the atoms
In the heights and in the deepest chasms

There is a Greatness and an Everythingness
For the created aren't just an anythingness
For the createdness and the everythingness
Are all a part of His Great Divine-ness

In the creatures and in the plants here
In the visible and in what does not appear
In the mountains and in the valleys
In the oceans wide or slums and alleys

There is a Greatness and an Everythingness
For the created aren't just an anythingness
For the createdness and the everythingness
Are all a part of His Great Divine-ness

In the quietness and in the loudness
In the peacefulness and in the utter darkness
In the daylight and in the night time
In the beautifulness and in the humble rhyme

There is a Greatness and an Everythingness
For the created aren't just an anythingness
For the createdness and the everythingness
Are all a part of His Great Divine-ness

In the silence and in the mumbling
In the earthquakes and in the hills tumbling
In the tornados and in the hurricanes
In the calmness and the golden plains

There is a Greatness and an Everythingness
For the created aren't just an anythingness
For the createdness and the everythingness
Are all a part of His Great Divine-ness

In this moment and in this hour
In our weakness and in our power
In our waking and in our rising
In the mundane and in things surprising

There is a Greatness and an Everythingness
For the created aren't just an anythingness
For the createdness and the everythingness
Are all a part of His Great Divine-ness

Words...

From my soul, these words come out
Like some water from a spout:
Flowing, pouring, splashing all
Free to have them, as they fall..

Without measure, without frame
Words come out and call a name:
Every person, everywhere
You can claim them, even share..

Like some butter on some bread
They are tastier when they  spread
Sweetening life, relieving hurt
Words can lift, remove all dirt

Say them softly from your mind
Sweetest comforts for our kind
Lightly seasoned, or all out:
Words can help  relieve all doubt

But, like good things; they can sour..
If,  not careful, can devour
Broken people, strong ones too
Guard your words whatever you do...

Misty mornings

Misty mornings make their sound
For the world that's all around
Stretching, singing, one and all
Creatures wake us: great and small

And the elements one by one..
Sparkle with the rising sun.
Sounding,soothing, seeping in:
With their energies, we begin..

Colorful auras, and the breeze,
Delight the seeker who quickly sees:
Beauty, wonder, God's own breath
In the heights and in the depth

Could we, should we stop and gaze
At the dawning of those rays;
Coming from the morning light:
Would we see things with pure sight...?

After the storm stops

The lizards and frogs are singing their song
That follow the storms, so bold and so long
The squirrels, they romp, in the light that wanes
Grateful to gather some nuts and some grains..

The droplets of water continue to fall
As cicadas sound their interesting call
Fireflies are scurrying and brightening the eve
Tiny little creatures that won't ever deceive

Showers are slowing to a pitter patter flow
Soothing and sounding like a healing: you know
Soaking the places where energies are found
Rain is God's goodness that's sprinkled around...

Home at last...

Quiet touches upon my face
From the wind with all its grace
Whispers to me that God is love
And He's watching from Above..

In the flowers and in the trees
In the mites that no one sees
Breath of Heaven, breath Divine:
Whispers to this heart of mine

Going further into the air
In the plant-lets everywhere
Sounds of Heaven creating rhyme
Moving hearts and stopping time

Flowing waters... droplets too
Echo Heavens "I love you"
Though we see no Sacred Face
We can hear Him every place

Through the violence through the fear
God has raised us;  drew us near.
Rescuing all from  evil grasp,
God's our Haven: Home at last..

Setting the pace...

I sit here and I listen to the sounds of all the creatures:
There are the birds and the squirrels and the tiniest that earth features
All of them uniting and creating some harmony:
What peacefulness, what wonderfulness, what soothing symphony

In the visuals, that I'm seeing.there's the beauty of all creation
There's a back drop of the Heavens and the plants that grace our nation
Sought after sights that can stop us from our racing"
The plantlets, and the meadows, with some moments to  halt our pacing..

The ratrace and the whirlwinds, and the runnings that we're doing
Are something we can detach from without loss of what we're pursuing
Yet the tempo and the rhythm and the speed with which we move
Will be the ambient we're creating, so that others  can feel our groove

Fragile lungs....

Air is thick: so hard to breathe
Walking out ..you wouldn't believe
It's like a wrap that slaps my face
The air is heavy, invades my space

A few more moments and I'll gasp
How much longer can I  last..?
Humidity's high, my lungs are weak:
Should I test this fragile physique

No I can't and so I must run
From the beauty of the sun
For the moisture all around
Has a dangerous warming sound...

What is wrong with all of us?

What is wrong with all of us...?
What's the reason for all this fuss
Weren't we all created equal
Do we need an Eden sequel?

When we were all being created
God, the Almighty, was so elated
"Multiply and fill the earth"
This, our mission, from our birth

So, what's the reason for this scene:
Loving children being mean
What has happened to our call?
Hatred's passed from great to small..

Time is passing and so is earth
Will we destroy what's ours from birth
Giving into painful pride
Will we rebel against our call inside?

Turn the channels: look and see
How rebellion brings tragedy
People turning from love to hate
Will our awakening be too late?

Morning whispers....

Out my window, birds do sing
Beautiful melodies sweetly ring
Like a soothing sound of grace
Morning whispers all over the place

Barely shining the morning sun
Greets the sleepers: one by one
And the squirrels...romp and play
Pounding earth in rhythmic way..

Rustling winds on  plant and tree
Sing their songs so poetically
Echoing from the bright blue sky
A mother sings her lullaby..

And we God's children yawn and rise
Beneath the canopy of the skies
Trusting that another day
Will be ours in a special way


By the ocean...

Shiny soundlets in  the air
Sun beams floating everywhere
Touching softly on my face
Atoms bursting with their grace

Warming moments in the sun
Splashing waves on everyone
Sounds of water cool and sweet
Refreshment from the summer heat

Sands beneath my feet and toes
Some are even on my nose
Castles built to tumble down
Grains of sand are barely brown

Days of resting,, days of fun
Vacationing away from everyone
With the breezes upon my face
Rushing winds sing: "Amazing Grace"

There's bruises on her body

Does anybody notice, the child who is weeping
Slowly she is crawling; slowly she is creeping
Throughout a darkened household, afraid and all alone:
Does anybody notice ...she's afraid to use the phone

Yet, she's broken up by  mommy 
Her bruises cover her body
Each day she moves so slowly
And wonders if anyone will see?

Does anybody hear, in her frailness, as she's speaking
A hint of her ordeal, that carefully she's tweaking?
All around the world is running with its mission
But, no one in her world is feeling any contrition

Yet,  she's broken up by mommy
Her bruises cover her body
Each day she moves so slowly
And wonders if anyone will see

She has a gift for smiling while inwardly she's weeping
In church she is that angel through which eternity is seeping
Yet when she's in that home place that place of utter fear
She is that silent sufferer whose brokenness you'll never hear

Yet, she's broken up by mommy
Her bruises cover her body
Each day she moves so slowly:
And wonders if anyone will see..

Taught to keep a silence that mamma had her carry
She walked around with wounds that she's was forced to bury
And yet there were those people who knew her painful drama
Yet never dared to question the one they called her mamma

Yet, she's broken  up by mommy
Her bruises cover her body
Each day she moves so slowly
And wonders if anyone will see

Cool reprieve

Cooler breezes sweep around
Breathable molecules can be found
Moment's reprieve from the heat
Ah this morning is so sweet....

Greening plantlets reach up high
As the coolness passes by
Waving freely here and there
Bamboo branches greet the air

And the morning sings aloud
Through the breezes and the cloud
Soothing sounding..we can hear
Whispers from the atmosphere

Memories of mamma...


I'm sorry I didn't know her, the mother that you knew
For time has changed experiences that each had ventured through
So while we shared this mamma our memories aren't the same
You relish in her remembering  but I tremble at her name...

I cannot tell you everything for it would be too much
But I never knew the "I love yous" or  the gentle caring touch
The bathroom and the beatings and the humiliations too
This is I knew of mamma who gently cared for  you

Just as you shrink from talking to the predator in our home
I cannot see her picture without feeling so alone
How come she didn't love me or tell me of my worth
Instead I had to keep hiding from the family of my birth..

Yes i knew of your mamma for I knew her as my own
But never did I hear: I love you on the phone
NO matter how I tried to:  my efforts were in vain
She reminded me so often how I disgraced the family name....

So there you have some secrets but there are so many more
And the scars upon my body remind me of the front door
I'm  sorry I seem so distant and unable to post some pics
But memories of our mamma has put me in hysterics..
