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..

Oh London, I am crying, I am crying for you

Tears  in my eyes and tears on my face
All the worlds whirling from this recent disgrace
What are we doing  and what are we coming too
A religion is licensing this hatred that's coming through?

Oh London I am crying I am crying for you 
Again another tragedy by terrorists passing though
Prayers sent up quickly; yes prayers for you all
God grant you safety as you assist all who fall

People are crying and  people are bleeding
Victims of violence through death's door proceeding
Who can bring answers; who solve these issues
Too many the sorrows .. I'm needing more tissues..

Oh London I am crying I am crying for you 
Again another tragedy by terrorists passing though
Prayers sent up quickly; yes prayers for you all
God grant you safety as you assist all who fall

The stories and headlines and  upset continue
As Isis and followers keep terrorizing it is true
Something so tragic so heartless so merciless
Tell me oh tell me why we are not exacting more..vigilance..

Oh London I am crying I am crying for you 
Again another tragedy by terrorists passing though
Prayers sent up quickly; yes prayers for you all
God grant you safety as you assist all who fall


In These Hours of Grace...

Beautiful moments are oozing with grace
God's speaking His daylight, all over the place..
Sunshine and molecules are touching us all;
Golden the morning that echoes His call

And we see God's Face
In these hours of Grace
All the world can hear
God's immortality's so near

Softly the sunbeams are dancing around
Oxygenated atoms are bursting with sound
Touching the leavelets, the breeze pass through
Echoing an unending, Eternal : "I love you"

And we see God's Face
In these hours of Grace
All the world can hear
God's immortality's so near

The hours, the minutes, the seconds collide
Each carrying a message so carefully supplied
Unending, Eternal and Always around
God breathes forth His manna: it's everywhere found..

And we see God's face
In these hours of Grace
All the world can hear
God's immortality's so near

Graces and blessings

Look at the sky and look at the air
See all the beauty and see everywhere
God speaks out goodness and God speaks out Light
Everything's beautiful to those with pure sight

Tiny little mitelets and grandiose hills
Growing ground covers and oceanic thrills
Creatures with feathers and those who have not
God created everything: nothing was bought

If you look upwards or if you look down
Beautiful wonders appear all around
Creatures and insects and everything you see
Speak to you constantly: kindness is free..

When you are waking or when you're asleep
God keeps on giving us:  things you can keep:
Graces and blessings and all that is good
If we would look now: we'd see them: we would

Freedom for all

For our country boots were worn
Hands were raised and oaths were sworn
To serve this nation and motherland
Soldiers readied to take a stand

Thunderous sounds would fill the air
Bombshells flying everywhere..
Bravely being a voice of the free
You died defending our liberty

We all salute you all, today
Veteran soldiers in harms way
Man or woman,,, rich or poor
Thanks for protecting what we stand for

Some might scream and frown at war
But you've marched bravely through that door
Keeping violence from coming here
You battled through with heavy gear

Watching death come near and far
Your own souls would bear the scar
Of every person witnessing war:
Freedom for all, is how we score...

What happened to loving.......?

What happened to loving; and what happened to caring? 
Have we all forgotten that we're created for sharing???

The world is so needy our families are all broken
There's plenty of fighting yet hope goes unspoken

What happened to loving; and what happened to caring? 
Have we all forgotten that we're created for sharing???

The saddest of all stories,, the most heart rending of news
Is that we have enough love to give but its hatred we choose...

What happened to loving; and what happened to caring? 
Have we all forgotten that we're created for sharing???

The skies up above us and the earth down below us
Joined with the creatures in singing this chorus :

What happened to loving; and What happened to caring? 
Have we all forgotten that we're created for sharing???

The buying; the selling;  the humongous propaganda
Cannot destroy it the hearts need for  something less random..

What happened to loving? What happened to caring? 
Have we all forgotten that we're created for sharing???

We're ready to give all for the causes and cameras
But who will be ready for the giving less glamorous

What happened to loving? What happened to caring? 
Have we all forgotten that we're created for sharing???

The world's needing warriors without weapons or bullets
Who'll stand up ready for the spreading of goodness

What happened to loving? What happened to caring? 
Have we all forgotten that we're created for sharing???

So don't try to come back to me...

If you walk away from me I'm not going to chase you
So think over, carefully; everything, you're going to do...
I am not going to beg you; and I am not going to pray
That you would be in my life, in any sort of way...

So, don't try to come back to me ; for this door won't be open 
Don't come back here promising to heal what is broken
Once you have hurt me; you won't hurt again
So if you're walking out; don't expect to come back in.

You called out  my secrets; then,  broke down  my spirit
Said you were  here for me: but...the opposite exhibited
All of my heart was poured out in one sharing
Not knowing your agenda was anything but caring..

So, don't try to come back to me ; for this door won't be open 
Don't come back here promising to heal what is broken
Once you have hurt me; you won't hurt again
So if you're walking out;  don't expect to come back in.

Sometimes I easily believe the kindnesses shown me
Not wanting to believe there can be malice or impurity
But that is my weakness and my frailty of character
To believe one who is telling me: "I'll be here forever"

So, don't try to come back to me ; for this door won't be open 
Don't come back here promising to heal what is broken
Once you have hurt me; you won't hurt again
So if you're walking out;  don't expect to come back in.

Just like the others who have broken or beaten me
You came with such suavity that I listened so willingly
Collecting your diamonds to sell to the enemy
You broke into my heart space within intentions of calumny

So, don't try to come back to me ; for this door won't be open 
Don't come back here promising to heal what is broken
Once you have hurt me; you won't hurt again
So if you're walking out;  don't expect to come back in.

Desensitized

The world is weeping; she is sending up her sighs to God the Almighty above
She is questioning everybody, questioning everyone around "where is the love"
Why are we becoming so indifferent, so very deeply desensitized
Yet preoccupy ourselves with our own appearances: our egos are greatly magnetized

The universe is all upset and reeling from all the violent actions all around
She is wondering why we can't see it:  so much inhumanity is everywhere found
The world is all so needy; yet  so blinded by this awful spreading disease
It's infecting everyone, and it leaving everyone with humanistic tendencies..

We're becoming, so easily, something else we weren't ever meant to be
Dressing up in garments and jewelries that cry out to everyone "look at me"
Yet we are so blinded, not seeing everything that we should be  noticing
People right next to us, go on struggling: alone with their own suffering

With the angels

Calling out to each of us, the angel spirits  will whisper..
As they pull  us to the quiet times,  and say:   "come. you hither"
Pointing out the beautiful-ness; the loveliness all around;
Angel guardians remind us all... how Heaven can truly sound

While the morning star is rising.. songs of an unearthly kind
Illuminate my heart and soul and soothe my waking mind
Inspiring me with the words to  rhyme and giving you words to read
Guardians of this universe will always bring us what we need..

Before the rush, of all our day, the angels will beckon and plead
That we should stop, and take some time, and inhale the love we need
Pouring out to  us through all: through all we can hear and see
God the Almighty Father is nourishing us with His Immortality

This is who I am...

I cannot hide my feelings and I cannot cover up my being
I am who I really am; and I'm all that you are really seeing
Nothing is ever borrowed and everything is authentic
I cannot be anyone else dear, I am naturally this poetic

This is who I am  and this is really me
Nothing is artificial: everything's what you see
I cannot change my being and I cannot be untrue
I am truly being my happiest when I'm doing what I do

I feel everything so deep inside me  and process all very slowly
My very first inclination is to be quiet; but, not lowly
Fanfare would appall me and so would any false grandeur
If you were being untruthful I would call you out, for sure

This is who I am  and this is really me
Nothing is artificial: everything's what you see
I cannot change my being and I cannot be untrue
I am truly being my happiest when I'm doing what I do

Something about that fakeness that's sweeping round and around
Has put me into a wonder: where is the realness to be found?
Too many the sheep and followers of the empty promise makers
Who will stand up to challenge those obviously gifted fakers

This is who I am and this is really me
Nothing is artificial and everything's what you see
I cannot change my being and I cannot be untrue
I am truly being my happiest when I'm doing what I do

Morning morsels

Don't be the rug for another's feet
If they're not nice or kind or sweet
Depart from them; yes, walk away
Their dust, their dirt.. can darken you day

You've tried your best; it's been so tough
Your attempts and pleas were not enough
They've closed their eyes: refused to see
The beauty, the love, you want to be..

The guise of faith can make it hard
It appears so sweet but acts like shard
Tearing, dividing,  and making a show:
It's sparkles and shines: but cuts you know

The soul that loves will be that shine
That comes from God, the Great Divine
Without the pew or place of prayer
Their lives keeps shouting: God's everywhere

So head these lines and hear them well
A church can't save or send  to hell
Only a heart or inner voice
Can tell us if Heaven or Hell's our choice

What gives you the right..?

You stand there, gawking; and judging me
You with all of  your Christianity....
A Sunday singer, who's always there:
How can you mock me.. yet kneel in prayer?

You claim you're a believer in the Holy Book
But tell me a passage.. that supports your look
What verse or number can you point me to
That says I deserve all this treatment from you

Have you forgotten it...  that sacred line
That says your loving must "Be more like Mine"
Not hiding your light or burying your gift
Something inside you must surely shift..

The time is slipping and its disappearing fast
Before you know it, you'll be breathing your last
The hours of silence and the Sunday Mass
Will not mean a thing .. if you're an ass..



You see it all....

Words I couldn't say tears I couldn't cry
All them resting here; within this soul inside
I might run and hide; I might question why
Things don't make much sense ...should I even try..

Take this heart dear Lord; take my brokenness..
Fill it up with You; with all your Holiness.
I cannot describe the pain: cannot speak a word
Years of anguish Lord: unuttered and unheard...

You see it all dear Lord, Yes,  You  see everything
You see my inner hurt the wounds that continue to sting
The utter helplessness: the view of life and death
I surrender it all to You: Giver of lasting breath.

It is so...

The leaves, they move and sing with the wind
It comes to visit again and again
The squirrels,they play; the birds,  they peck:
The world is awake, with beauty, on deck..

The sun, it'll rise and the moon will too
Each one is ordered to do what they do
The elements, the plants, the world as a whole
Is acting, reacting, like body and soul..

The effects we have, the choices we make
Become quite a blessing or a terrible mistake
For the world so near or even quite far
Our pain, our happiness are yours ...they are

We are never alone and we aren't ever apart
We're joined together through love of His Heart
The sufferings; the sorrows;  the joys we all know
Can change all the world: it is so, it is so...

They need love...

Feathery creatures on my sill
Whistling brightly: heart and will
Fluttering quickly; seeking seed
Created beauties:  yes indeed...

Crawling, jumping all around
Squirrelly creatures can be found
Playing, twirling,peeking through
They can use a friend like you

Sailing subtly through the  breeze
Butterflies fly and so do bees
Colorfully sounding soft and sweet
Insects sing with tones discreet

Morning evening noon or night
Creatures speak and give delight
Created  for us,,, from  Above
They are like us:  they need love..

She kept it hid from you ...

Because you didn't see it:  you never knew what happened to me
And because you never asked you never  knew my tragedy
But the sorrows I carried inside me, will always be as before
Memories etched inside my spirit and guardians of my door

You never really knew, all the sorrows that I had known
Or the fears I had to face; when I was child feeling alone 
But the pages of all  my angels will echo deep and true
This child was truly a victim and she kept it hid from you.

You cannot begin to understand it: the secrets I chose to hide
I didn't call attention from others,  I kept them hidden  inside
But little by little they came out: these messengers of my wounds
And said "it's time for healing" and it couldn't have been too soon

You never really knew all the sorrows that I had known
Or the fears I had to face when I was child feeling alone 
But the pages of all  my angels will echo deep and true
This child was truly a victim and she kept it hid from you.

So I go through mixed emotions and am a stranger to  my kin
They haven't ever really known me: I wouldn't know where to begin
We lived in a different era and we all knew a very different day
So when we're  speaking  of  happiness: I can't relate to what they say

You never really knew all the sorrows that I had known
Or the fears I had to face when I was child feeling alone 
But the pages of all  my angels will echo deep and true
This child was truly a victim and she kept it hid from you ...

With eyes wide open....

Gentle light of morning ..shine your light on me
Show me all your radiance: beautiful as can be..
Looking through the windows: coloring trees and sky
Radiant star of morning: thanks for passing by..

Calming breeeze of morning moving here and there
Whisper to my spirit secrets from everywhere
In your every movement, in your touch serene
Show me all earth's needy:  visible and unseen...

Quiet flowing waters dropping from the sky
I can hear the echoes of those who weep and cry
In the splashing rhythm of your shining glow
I can hear the whispers, of angels, don't you know..

Morning, noon and evening ..hours of every day
Carry their own agenda: things they want to say
But,we with all our movement: our have to's all galore
Often, miss all the messages, that each minute has in store

So today, we'll take the challenge: to listen a little more
And see with eyes wide open : the wealthy and the poor
We'll hear in every raindrop the heartbeats from far away
And see inside each sunbeam the light of eternal day....

People, in Here, love well...............

Today, I cried and I wept and then I decided to say:
My God and my dearest Creator, has shown  to me this Way:
Not loaded down with many booklets or laden down with many pews
But having so many people who were wearing or not wearing shoes..

Somehow, I couldn't believe it... that this, was Heaven's gate
For it looked so very different, than the Heaven when I was eight...
It didn't require memorizations:  it didn't speak of fiery Hell
But did  point out most strongly: that people, in here, love well...

I stared in the most amazing silence and waited to hear some more
When out came the Great Almighty from the Heights of Heaven's door
Booming with all of His Majesty and stooping down to me
He lifted up my drooping spirit and whispered this so lovingly ...

OF all the many qualities and of all the people I can choose
It isn't any of the most likely that will capture My Morning Muse
For the people are being so programmed and are also so prepped to be
Whatever "the molder" will make them but few are really so free..

As to act from within their spirits  and to love without any lye
I'm drawn to the most humble of renegades, who will boldly choose to fly
Over all of the lands of the "have to's" and over all the seas of "me" and "mine"
To share the love  of their Creator which can make all things Divine...

From all this I went out to ponder and then I went outside to cry:
I have stood in the presence of the Creator I have seen Him: Oh my, oh my
We have been so badly misled friends and we have been so stuck for so long
That we don't realize the phony fallacies and cannot see the right from the wrong..





Monday, May 8, 2017

Be the peace, be the calm...

Hear the sound of all the breezes
Whispering words that time unfreezes
From the towns and from  the cities
Sounds the sorrows that no one pities

See the left and see the right side
Each are wrong; when comes the eventide
We can fight or we can solve it
All the chaos infecting our spirit

Can't we see or are we blinded
Peace is what we need..let's find it
All the world and all the cosmos
Is upset with all of our egos...



Saturday, May 6, 2017

Help me to love...

Lord give me a heart that's ready to love
Everyone and everything as You do from above
Give me Your eyes and give me Your mind
So I can be selfless with all humankind..

Yes, I have been selfish and I have been mean
Help me dear Jesus, I want to be seen:
As giving and kindly and loving to all...
I need You dear Jesus please answer my call

Lord give me a heart that's ready to love
Everyone and everything as You do from above
Give me Your eyes and give me Your mind
So I can be selfless with all humankind..

The morning has brought me  another new day;
Please remind me dear Jesus to watch what I say.
I'm quickly judgmental and slow in my prayer
Help me dear Jesus to be welcoming everywhere..

Lord give me a heart that's ready to love
Everyone and everything as You do from above
Give me Your eyes and give me Your mind
So I can be selfless with all humankind..

The ways of this world are calling its true
Help me dear Jesus to be loyal to You
Let me not murmur and let me not hate
Time keeps on passing and its getting so late..

Lord give me a heart that's ready to love
Everyone and everything as You do from above
Give me Your eyes and give me Your mind
So I can be selfless with all humankind..

Those storms cannot harm you

Don't be afraid of the storms that you see
Though you feel alone now:  you'll always have Me
I'm here with My angels and here with My love
Don't be afraid of the lightning above...

The winds, they are blowing; but they cannot harm
Those I'm protecting despite all alarm
I'll comfort and soothe you and whisper your name
In good times and bad times, I'm always the same

Whenever you're frightened and battered inside
Remember.. I love you, you needn't not hide
Your interests, your worries. all matter to Me
Come now,  My child,  I help you be free..

Today is the tomorrow I was hoping to see

I sit here and listen to the songs in the wind
Beautiful melodies from the outside coming in
Blue Jays and bluebirds and robins all sing
Listen oh listen, there's beauty in everything...

The grass blades are swaying; the elements..too
Whispering and echoing  the "Eternal I Love  You"
Beaming from the Heavens with God's purest light
The star of the morning is keeping things bright

Gone are the shadows and gone is the night
Lost in the aura of the morning's purest light
Gathered from the Heavens and given to me
Today is the tomorrow I was hoping to see..



Monday, May 1, 2017

I'll find God's comfort..

My heart is tired from being so strong
I want to cry the whole day long
The months been hard and difficult too
I want some time to process: I do..

The need to work has kept me calm
But death has left me seeking the psalm
That speaks the words I want to say
I'm going to search for it right away

It's something how the Good Book works
It'll step right in, when the spirit shirks
It;ll  comes alive, when all seems dead
The bible is the best book I've read...

So to its pages I'll gladly flee
And seek some solace for someone like me,
Who needs a hand and a hearty cry,
I'll find God's comfort and love inside...

So much to hear

A quietness, a stillness, and just a bit of sound
Are greeting  me this morning: they're everywhere around..
Then, in an instant, a tiny outburst breaks on through;
As sunbeams start shouting with a radiance bold and true

I hear them, I see them, and gaze with waking eyes
As molecules and atoms create moisture in the skies
All of them, working together: creating  a gentle rain
How soothing, refreshing: they're dancing upon my pane

The seconds, the hours, the minutes of every day
Are speaking and  shouting and having so much to say
They carrying their messages, their melodies and their song
Will listen  and will hear them and will try to sing along



Friday, April 28, 2017

Just for you, God made it all

Hear how the silences starts speaking to you
Restless, the moments, that burst open its true
From all of their places and from earth's own floor
Creatures will  rise up and greet morning once more

Blue birds and black birds and sparrows as well
Sing of their evening as they're trying to sell
All of their moments and all of their joy
So much is the beauty in those songs they deploy

Slowly there's lifting a slight misty fog
Unveiling some morsels for the writer to blog
Droplets of dew and a slight morning breeze
Invites us to ponder as they try hard to please

Enough for our spirits is this new morn's display
It invites us to ponder and it inspires us to pray
Acknowledging our  Maker who with kindness did give
Mornings and evenings and all things that live

They have lessons we all need

Golden sun beams on my sill
Speak out volumes when I'm still
See them luster; see them glow?
Divinity's shine is on overflow...

Whispering winds that wisp and wind
Touch my heart and touch my mind
Brushing gently; making noise
All creation holds God's voice

Lightly lighting here and there
Butterflies dance and bless the air
Colorfully flying: great their ease
They're emitting inner peace..

All the robins chirp and sing
Beautifully coloring everything
Peacefully pecking poking around
Seeking crawlers inside the ground..

In the daylight in the night
Creatures call and create a sight
Seek and see them all who read
They have lessons we all need

Things that matter....

When God is looking, He sees your eyes
He's not concerned with shape or size
He's not even moved by things you do
But values much, the love in  you

So change your heart and change your mind
Return to the love of all mankind
Spend  your time and spend it well
On things that matter but cannot sell

You push and pull on heavy things
And break the bank for diamond rings
But what'll you give for Heaven above
Its only price is selfless love

So change your heart and change your mind
Return to the love of all mankind
Spend your time and spend it well
On things that matter but cannot sell

The orphaned child or homeless man
Are often judged by those who can
But if you want to shine and glow
You'll be the one who'll stop.. you know

So change your heart and change your mind
Return to the love of all mankind
Spend your time and spend it well
On things that matter but cannot sell

The days go by so fast so quick
The moments disappear, the clock does tick
What'll  you show your angel of light
When, in your prayer you say:  "goodnight"?

So change your heart and change your mind
Return to the love of all mankind
Spend your time and spend it well
On things that matter but cannot sell

The Almighty has rhythm...

Reach out to the universe and touch them: all the plants
See them how they're mirroring the Eternal's Mighty Dance
Whispering in the branches and breathing on the trees
The Infinite speaks His secrets and everybody sees.

That the  Almighty has a rhythm and He has a melody
He sends out all His messengers; they play for you and me
We can hear them in the symphony of the softly blowing breeze
And see them as they move around the movement of the bees

While all the world is waking up the sounds of nature start
Birds are chirping everywhere; their music moves our heart
The leaves are moving peacefully: they bend, they bow, they sway
All the created universe is waking up to say:

That the  Almighty has a rhythm and He has a melody
He sends out all His messengers; they play for you and me
We can hear them in the symphony of the softly blowing breeze
And see them as they move around the movement of the bees

One by one the marching band of ants and insects galore
Parade across the spongy ground and dance upon its floor
The crickets and the butterflies the hoppers of every kind
Whisper to the listening heart:  these messages sure to rhyme:

The  Almighty has a rhythm and He has a melody
He sends out all His messengers; they play for you and me
We can hear them in the symphony of the softly blowing breeze
And see them as they move around the movement of the bees

Everything's so connected....

The rains, they are pouring, and watering all the land
Singing out their melody for all who'll understand
Carrying in their being-ness: the voices of one and all
Hear them as they're falling: how mysteriously they call

From the many countries, stories can be found
Emerging in  the raindrops and echoing in their sound
We can hear the weeping widow,  the orphans and the poor
And if we're really quiet we can even hear some more

Everything's  so connected: the animals, plants and us;
Yes God created everything with His wisdom and His touch
His Spirit is moving everywhere and in everything we see
An image of His Wonderfulness is beckoning you and me..

We're acting so unaware....

When will we ever see it and when will we understand
The beauty of each person in every country and every land
We are all, but broken vessels, that are carrying the great Divine
Every one of us is so deserving of love.. so let it shine

And yet we see the missiles and  we also see the wars
People are becoming greedy: overpricing items in the stores
Our world is turning away from the Spirit that made us care
Our God had made us  Sacred yet we're acting so unaware..  

The headlines are all appalling and the media is just the same
No one is for reconciling its much easier to place the blame...
We're hungry for what is awful and were glued to what is mean
How many will fill a stadium for a kindly deed unseen?

And yet we see the missiles and  we also see the wars
People are becoming greedy: overpricing items in the stores,,
Our world is turning away from the Spirit that made us care
Our God had made us  Sacred yet we're acting so unaware.. 

The channels inside our packages from Spectrum Dish or more
Are featuring the most outrageous the violence and the gore
But how are these helping our countries or are helping at all
They're planting deplorable ideas in the populations great or small

And yet we see the missiles and  we also see the wars
People are becoming greedy: overpricing items in the stores
Our world is turning away from the Spirit that made us care
Our God had made us  Sacred yet we're acting so unaware..

You've been strong....

Close your eyes dear, go to sleep
It's okay to rest and weep
You've been sorrowing.. you're not weak
Memories in your mind will  speak

It's only natural and only right
That you should feel this way tonight
All the anguish of all those years
Will fall like droplets and look like tears

You seem to fight it, yes you're strong:
Consoling others the whole day long
All inside you like walls of steel
You keep on hiding it, how you feel

It's only natural and only right
That you should feel this way tonight
All the anguish of all those years
Will fall like droplets and look like tears

Crying heals you and it's okay
To let those emotions have their way
Youve've been holding them:  deep inside
Let them flow now:  let all  outside

It's only natural and only right
That you should feel this way tonight
All the anguish of all those years
Will fall like droplets and look like tears

Some day we'll all be here

Dedicated to mom

How can we be weeping when Heaven is ours
We're higher than mountains and brighter than stars
Our struggling is over our journey is done
We sit here with Father, the Spirit and the Son

But you can keep weeping because you must wait
You haven't stopped travelling or reached Heaven's gate
You heart is still hurting from saying good bye
Some day we'll all be here beyond the Blue Sky

The night;ll  be hardest for busyness is done
You;ll  think of those yesterdays: remember each one
You'll think of those good times and also the bad
How wonderfully we made with all that we had..

But you can keep weeping because you must wait
You haven't stopped travelling or reached Heaven's gate
You heart is still hurting from saying good bye
Some day we'll all be here beyond the Blue Sky

When morning has broken and you see the new sky
Remember I love you and am always nearby
The Heavens can't  keep me.. away from you dear
I am always around you, I'll always be near..

But you can keep weeping because you must wait
You haven't stopped travelling or reached Heaven's gate
You heart is still hurting from saying good bye
Some day we'll all be here beyond the Blue Sky


A rainbow's nearby

Raindrops are falling like tears on the earth
Gently they sooth us and give us rebirth
Sprinkling and soaking and sounding a song
Droplets from Heaven can right every wrong

See how they sparkle and shine on the plants
Touching them gently and inspiring their dance.
Washing them warmly and quenching their thirst
Raindrops are healers who soothe away hurts

Jumping with energy or sailing with stride
Droplets keep falling from morning to night
Prepping the cosmos and readying the sky
Raindrops remind us:  a rainbow's  nearby

Tough times...

Let those tears roll down your face let them fall let them fall
All the angels will run and race to catch them all catch them all
Every heart break that you've known all the sorrows,  all the pain
Will become like streets of gold where saints and angels will remain

Can you hear that angelic choir, as they sing, yes:  they sing
All around they can be heard.. in everything ,,,in everything
They will sing here night and day;  they'll record you: all you say
Angel guardians, spiritual guides, enlightening everyone on the way.

So you have had the roughest time:  it's been rough, it's been rough
And every step that you must take: will be tough, it'll be tough
But put your hand inside God's hand; keep your heart pure and understand
God is with you through it all: that's His promise and His plan..

Rest in peace, mom

No more sorrows no more tears
Gone the pain of all those years
Heaven's opened: angels sing
Welcome home: all's serene

Questions answered: all is clear
All's explained: those hurts and fear
Laughter loving light galore
Heaven gives and much much more

Closing eyes can open up
Life eternal fills your cup
All's forgiven,  all is new
Heaven holds you,  mom, it's true

When you're running ..fields of gold
Remember us the young and old
Those you birthed and those you knew
One day we'll all be joining you

Rest in peace mom

It's still happening.......

The skies all darkened that day and the sun closed down its shine
When Jesus stretched out His arms and earth saw This Desolate Divine
Separating from His earthly abode and carried by angels away
Momentarily leaving this world, while darkness became our day

The angels sang out their melodies; and the spirits of long ago
Echoed again the promises, which prophets and seers foretold:
A savior would come to save us and a savior would cleanse us all
Like a lamb led away to the slaughter:  He answered the final call

The crowds were mocking and jeering Him, the family was near despair
The earth began its trembling and the spirits rose up everywhere
Who is this Jesus of Nazareth.. this man from Galilee?
Many were wondering and waiting and others were beginning to see

Why would a God of Power Omnipotent, with honor and glory galore
Accept such  humiliation from His people and so much more?
Why wouldn't He stop these infidels and turn the world  around ??
This mystery continues  occurring ..Good Friday continues to sound

We can still see the Body of our Jesus: broken up and led away
In each person,  who is utterly forsaken, by the powerful of our day
And like those, called to be followers, that deserted Him so long ago
We are  guilty of these sames action, when we go against the Love we know

Morning brings her own surprises.

Morning brings her own surprises: beauty life and dancing sun
In her message and her breezes: she enlightens everyone
Whispering through the moving branches; singing through the birds galore:
Morning shares her song of wonder; brings us all to heaven's door

While we rise to greet the new day; while we stretch to move again:
We can hear the silent echoes of the universe deep within ..
In her every sound of morning; in her noon day heat and shine:
Mother earth is speaking softly, soothing us with sounds Divine

As we watch these morning moments and we see the world outside
We can touch them with our wanting and inhale them all inside
For we're all so interconnected and we're all one breath one life
Through the mandate of the Father we're all connected.. unified....



Tuesday, April 11, 2017

We can change it all ..

There is way too  much of this bloodshed, this fighting that's going on
Why can't we ever see this: this  grief that's wrestling dawn
Every morning we can hear of it: this strife, this war. this  grief...
All of them are working together and are robbing us like a thief

The universe receives these upsets these energies of awful hate
And processes them into these catastrophes that we have seen of late:
Rain storms and awful tsunamis, hurricanes and mud sliding floor
Torrential rains that flood us and tornadoes and much much more

If everything's so connected and, we're,  all of us: affecting all
Why don't we see that the solution, is inside of us.. great or small
Learning to work together. instead of, all of us:  pulling apart:
We can create a world where everyone is living  with loving heart

Voices in the winds ..

I have heard them.. in the winds
Voices of the vast millions
Shouting laughing crying too
Teach us tell us what to do

In the moments: loud or still
When I'm working or when ill
Whisperings of the collective all
Challenge, chasten as they call

Not with voices all can hear
Do they pierce the atmosphere
For the listener of their needs
Must be free from selfish seeds

Would you join me in this cause
Solving sorrows taking pause
Giving smiles, helping hands
Healing hearts and healing lands?

Tell me, tell me, is it true
I can trust and depend on you
To carry out without command
Kindly deeds with outstretched hand

We are not the justices, the sheriffs of all

How does the taking of the life of another
Undo the wrong done to a sister or brother
What does the displaying of power of might
Do for  the universe or  Everlasting Light

We are  not the chosen commissioned to react
To another's injustices with horrific attack
We are not the justices, the sheriffs of all
If we are not careful, we're surely to fall

The violences, around us, will bring out a tear
But how do our warheads bring healing sincere
How can we solve it: the problems we see
With missiles or bombings... please tell this to me

We are  not the chosen commissioned to react
To another's injustices with horrific attack
We are  not the justices, the sheriffs of all
If we are not careful, we're surely to fall

See how the headlines are sparkling with dismay
Over rashness in actions and horrors of the day
How can we reason it,  support it, or surmise
That showering of missiles will cause justice to rise?

We are  not the chosen commissioned to react
To another's injustices with horrific attack
We are not the justices, the sheriffs of all
If we are not careful, we're surely to fall

If one nation suffers...

Can you not hear how the earth has been crying
All of her children are creating such sighing
Warring and fighting where there should be peace
See how she rumbles and showers her release..

All of the universe and all of us every where:
The creatures and the created;  the sea and the air
Each of us united, by the bond  of  creation
Are united in suffering when suffers any nation..

Out in the Pacific or hear in the east side
All of us are feeling it: the hopelessness far and wide
Can we not stop it: this evilness that is spreading
Power hungry leaders leave us wondering where we're heading

Pray for the universe and pray for the  nations
We're becoming a disaster because of our frustrations
Mishandling our freedoms we're robbing all free-ness
How long will it take us to realize and see this..

So..Dance....

All of the morning and all of the night
All of the hours in the darkness and light
All of the elements and all of the plants
All of the creatures and created can dance

So, dance in the morning and dance in the night
Dance in  noon time when the sun is most bright
Dance when you're smiling and dance when you're not
Dance will be healing like the medicines you've bought

When you are sleeping and when you're awake
Angels are singing without any break
Hovering about you yes everywhere around
Angels are creating a melodious sound

So, dance in the morning and dance in the night
Dance in the noon time, when the sun is most bright
Dance when you're smiling and dance when you're not
Dance will be healing, like the medicines you've bought

Everyone who's living and everyone who's not
Is joined to each other without any  knot
All have the Spirit and all have the One
Who gave us our being when life was begun..

So, dance in the morning and dance in the night
Dance in the noon time, when the sun is most bright
Dance when you're smiling and dance when you're not
Dance will be healing, like the medicines you've bought

Yes you are beautiful

Do you not know, how special you are
You're brighter than the brightness of the brightest bright star
Created with beauty unseen on this earth
Specially fashioned from before your own birth

Yes you are beautiful and wonderfully made
Created by the Creator so don't be dismayed
Each element of your being each molecule within
Shines out with a radiance again and again

No person is similar for we're all so unique
We're created in God's likeness; we're  able to speak
But comparing and competing will  always be unfair
For each person will differ in  what one can share...

Yes you are beautiful and wonderfully made
Created by the Creator so don't be dismayed
Each element of your being each molecule within
Shines out with a radiance again and again

Don't let anyone fool you; for you are  enough
God has fashioned your being: you're  made of God's stuff..
You might not be pretty or intelligent or wise
But you are God's creation and most precious in His eyes

Yes you are beautiful and wonderfully made
Created by the Creator so don't be dismayed
Each element of your being each molecule within
Shines out with a radiance again and again

Have you noticed?

Chirping and singing and praising the day
Birds of all genre are blessing away
Breaking the silence with all of their song
Morning is coming let us all get along...

Pushing through windows and dancing around
Sunbeams are speaking without any sound
Brightening our darkness and coloring the sky
The great star of morning is greeting you and I

Whispering with wonder and shaking the trees
Light winds are moving and creating a breeze
Touching so softly; they're  able to be strong
The winds relay messages: short ones and long....

Blooming with beauty and creating an array
Flowers all around are sharing their display
Soothing our senses and delighting our eyes
These are such treasures: there is no surprise...

Take time each morning and make it a routine
To observe all God's wonders: His blessings serene
Hearing  His sweetness and seeing His grace
God has truly blessed us; He's given us this place..

Whispering winds that say: "I care"

Take your time and see, yes see
God has love for you and me
Splashing colors: here and there
Whispering winds that say: "I care" 

Plants that heal us; trees with seed
Numerous plantlets delight and feed
Fruits and veggies; herbs galore
God has blessed us with much more

Take your time and see, yes see
God has love for you and me
Splashing colors: here and there
Whispering winds that say: "I care" 

Sunny sunrises, quiet plains
Nightly storms with pounding rains
Storms that shake us or do not
God has blessed us: with all we've got

Take your time and see, yes see
God has love for you and me
Splashing colors: here and there;
Whispering winds that say: "I care"

In the friends who bless our day
In the ones who will walk away
God is watching, up above
For God is Good and God is Love

Take your time and see, yes see
God has love for you and me
Splashing colors: here and there;
Whispering winds that say: "I care"

Every moment of every hour
Speaks God's Wisdom and His Power
All His creatures: we are His
When united: we are bliss

Take your time and see, yes see
God has love for you and me
Splashing colors: here and there;
Whispering winds that say "I care"

Blessings of morning

Early hours are opening up and sounds of night are gone
Romping rodents scamper about and sparrows announce the dawn
Every element is holding out the imprints of the One
Who breathes into our night and day and blesses everyone...

One by one the hours emerge with their orders for the day
While whispers from the waking morn chase night and darkness away
Creatures of the world around all dance and shout and sing
Morning is the musical muse that encourages everything...

Slowly every one around: the plants, the sky, the sea...
Rise up from their slumbering spot and open their eyes to see:
The loveliness, the golden-ness, The Diviness touching  all
How wonderfully blessed we truly are: God loves us: great and small

You don't have to worry

You don't have to worry; and you don't have to rush 
For you know that God loves you; yes, He loves you so much
Everything will be happening and everything will be
Just let Him be your TourGuide, in those places unseen...

Have you seen all the horrors, have you known all the pain?
Have you woken each morning with those feelings mundane?
Have you longed for the different; but experienced the same
Surrender your spirit to the One with no name...

You don't have worry; and you don't have to rush
For you know that God loves you; yes, He loves you so much
Everything will be happening; and everything will be
Just let Him be your TourGuide in those places unseen

Were your burdened with sorrows or laden with fear..
Have you longed for a healing but no remedies were near?
Have you looked for the answers for the reason for all
Your God has the solutions, you have only to call

You don't have worry; and you don't have to rush
For you know that God loves you; yes, He loves you so much
Everything will be happening; and everything will be
Just let Him be your TourGuide in those places unseen

When the night has been horrific and your tears hit the ground
And you look for the caring but the unvailable words sound
When you feel you have reached it the amount you can bear
Just dig deep and call Him: He is ready to care ..

You don't have worry; and you don't have to rush
For you know that God loves you; yes, He loves you so much
Everything will be happening; and everything will be
Just let Him be your TourGuide in those places unseen

We're always one and never two

Peeking through the tops of trees
Golden beams upon the breeze
Sing and shout a mystery
Of love, of life, of destiny

Because we're one and they are too
We're always one and never two
Joined together, we'll make a whole
Body heart mind and soul 

Like the branches on the tree
And the birds we daily see
We are  beauty we are peace
Never meant to hurt the least

Because we're one and they are too
We're always one and never two
Joined together, we'll make a whole
Body, heart, mind and soul...

Drops of water, falling down
Soothe the earth and soften ground
Together readying mother earth
For those seeds that'll give rebirth

Because we're one and they are too
We're always one and never two
Joined together, we'll make a whole
Body, heart, mind and soul

Like the creatures and the plants
We were meant to laugh and dance
Never fighting ,,never in war:
We were meant for something more...

Because we're one and they are too
We're always one and never two
Joined together, we'll make a whole
Body, heart, mind and soul..

When the chaos  comes to stay:
We might ask it right away:
"Why this tumult, why this fight
We are creatures of the light"

Because we're one and they are too
We're always one and never two 
Joined together, we'll make a whole
Body, heart, mind and soul

And the upset earth will reply
You have chosen it ....you cannot deny
For by your steps you took to divide
You caused this oneness to all collide

Because we're one and they are too
We're always one and never two
Joined together, we'll make a whole
Body, heart, mind and soul

News Flash...

People lying on the ground
Without movement without sound
Terror has struck us, once again
Will this evilness, never end...?

All day long the news will play
Clips and videos of this day
Frightening pictures, woeful views
Flooding  media and the news.

Those who plot it, all day long
Find such glory,  in this wrong
Death, for them, is like a crown
They all  gloat and look around

How do we stop it: all this hate
Lodged inside these souls irate?
Carrying out orders: they'll destroy
Man or woman.. girl or boy

Times are changing, yes they are
For these horrors aren't so far
They've all landed on our shore
We have let them in our door..


Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Held by one thread.....

All the universe is crying, she shivers in pain
How long, how long.. must this violence remain
She shaking from terror; she's shaking from hate:
We all must start loving, for it's getting too late

For the world that we live in is held by one  thread
We're bound to each other: the living and the dead
The plant life and the animals; the human beings too:
We're all bound together; we're one body, it's true...

The world with its heartaches its laughters its joys
Is affecting each creature it isn't a choice
For like every family,  that is suffering or not
The world is affected by each action or thought

For the world that we live in, is held by one thread
We're bound to each other: the living and the dead
The plant life and the animals; the human being too
We're all bound together; we're one body, it's true...

WE think that the struggles and wars are not here
But every missile that's flying is present and near
Though distanced by miles, every person every where
Is part of our being our home life and our air..

For the world that we live in, is held by one thread
We're bound to each other: the living and the dead
The plant life and the animals; the human being too
We're all bound together; we're one body, it's true...

So lets act like we know this: this message in rhyme
And show to each other,,,respect every time
Not acting like  enemies or strangers at all
The universe is waiting ,,the creatures all call:

For the world that we live in, is held by one thread
We're bound to each other: the living and the dead
The plant life and the animals; the human being too
We're all bound together; we're one body, it's true...

Love is waiting to be shared

Love is waiting to be shared
Have you noticed, have you cared
Hurting people need your love
Heed this message from above...

Broken hearted, friendless too:
Souls are searching, needing you..
All around and in a rush
The world has lost it, lost it's touch

Love is waiting to be shared
Have you noticed, have you cared?
Hurting people need your love.
Heed this message from above.

Souls enraged with hate and might,
Seem to flee you; see their flight?
Really desperate, failing to see:
What they flee, is what they need..

Love is waiting to be shared.
Have you noticed, have you cared?
Hurting people need your love.
Heed this message from above.

Will you help him as you meet:
This begging person, in the street?
The hopeless, person doped and high
Will you help and heed his cry?

Love is waiting to be shared.
Have you noticed, have you cared?
Hurting people need your love.
Heed this message from above.

Hear her crying in the night
Heartbroke mother: child in sight
Wanting answers.. steeped in pain
Painful memories still remain

Love is waiting to be shared
Have you noticed, have you cared?
Hurting people need your love.
Heed this message from above

We're all so eager....yes we are
As we see them from afar
Broken people: needing all
Will we watch or answer their call?

Love is waiting to be shared
Have you noticed, have you cared?
Hurting people need your love.
Heed this message from above.

How can we not notice?

Morning is already upon us, and we see the brightness of the  sky..
Colors are splashed out around us:  entertainment for the searching eye.
How much are we able to witness , as the moments are passing us  by?
Creation is speaking so softly and   the universe is letting out her sigh..

Slowly the horizon is glowing, with the most glorious color of gold
Sunrise is infinitely awesome, and the dawn's treasures slowly unfold
Can you not see it, all of the beauty, the awesomeness of this  day?
All of the elements are sparkling with the morning star's display

Quietly, the creatures of morning  are already romping around
Rabbits and squirrels and robins, and every kind of insect are found
The breezes, all blow around us, and the molecules  we cannot see
Are joining together to create it:  the oxygen,,, we so badly need

How much is already  happening, before we can even start our day
The universe is already active and God's wisdom is   on display
Everything, around us, is echoing  the sweetest messages from His heart
How can we  not even notice it..this wonderfulness, as we start


Saturday, March 18, 2017

Help us see....

Raindrops falling on the earth
Carrying secrets carrying birth
Washing, cleansing, soothing  all
Showers from Heavens: how they fall

Flowing droplets falling rain
Soothing souls, removing pain
Like these waters from the skies
Tears will cleanse us: cleanse our eyes..

Heaven help us Heaven please
We;re so blinded no one sees
With your cleansing cleanse us all
So we'll love them: great and small



Thursday, March 16, 2017

God has given us all....

Count the hours count the minutes count the seconds of each day
Count the sunbeams count the dew drops count the sands along the way
Though you try to and you want to and you give the honest try;
You'll  never be able to count them: all God's blessings for you and I

Like the mountains or the valleys or the sea so broad and wide;
God has shown us all His blessings: they all flow like endless tide...
In the oxygen and the molecules in the atoms so great or small
Every ounce, of His Great Divine-Ness, is heard echoing for us all....

In the creatures that are crawling; in the tree tops way up high...
In the riverbeds, and the deserts; in the birds that sore the sky:
All God's blessings, all God's wonders, all God's providence: it is true
Gives us glimpses, gives us vision, gives Eternity to me and you

A Father Who cares...

Sometimes the journey will be easy and you'll notice, life is good
Other times, it'll be burdensome; and life won't seem, as it should
God is present, now and always; and He's  present when you feel alone
So, let His Spirit, lift and guide you; and remind you: you are His Own..

Times are changing, all around you; and life's challenges, they  increase
Just remember, you have a Father,  who created all in lasting peace
Though the tempests, rise and shake you; and the sorrows come to knock
You are special to the Father and He'll always have the time to talk...

Take each moment and each second,  like a gift from God above
Every minute and every hour will become the echoes of His  Love
Listen deeply, to your spirit; when the world is falling apart
For the Father is your Fortress and He has your room inside His Heart

Everything's related...

Every morning, every evening, every hour of every day
Life is speaking; God is calling; creation whispers along the way
See the beauty; see the wonders; see the world: its pure and clean
We the residents, we the people; we're the ones who make it mean..

Can we not become more loving; can we not learn how to share
Reaching out to friend and neighbor, to every person everywhere?
We're the choosers or the losers, we're the ones who  scheme or dream
All the world, waits our decisions: we can soothe or shout and scream

Every moment. every second. every breath we're going to take
Effects the universe and the world: consider well the plans you'll make
Today's still present; but,  tomorrow is not; so  what it it you're going to do
Every action; every movement will become the the air we breathe: its true

Our angels

Before the morning  can see the light and the skies are visibly blue
Angel guardians are keeping a watch:  watching  over me and you
They are sent from  Heaven above to guard, to keep us safe and  well
Everyone should want to know these guides, the enemies of hateful hell...

Whenever we're lost or hurt or afraid whenever we're needing a friend
These sacred spirits of the angelic world are ready to heed and tend
We have only to cry out to them in faith to reach out with trusting hand
They'll guide and lead and counsel us. They are part of God's loving plan

So let us give to them some time some respect some trust when free
They will be for us, for everyone:  God's light, God's truth, God's plea..
Their voices they will blend with all of ours and lift our needs above
How lucky we are to have these guides these angels these carriers of love

So, will you be still, for a moment?

Do you hear the sound of your own heart beat..
are you ever that entirely still
Can you see each molecule and atom
as they unite without degree or skill
All around you the world may be racing
and the universe may seem so far away
But when you stop to pause and ponder it:
its the world that's carrying you away

For, deep inside you, your spirit is hungry;
and is thirsting for quieter times
You are depriving yourself, so often;
when you should be considering the evident signs
You're feeling  so overburdened and unfulfilled
by life's challenges and seeking for more..
Somehow you might feel that life is inside that money bag
 or inside the mall or the  grocery store...

You have to slow down enough my friend
to begin to understand and really see
That life has so much to offer you;
its really so inexpensive: it's free
In the dancing of the daffodils and violets;
in the melodies  of birds in the trees
Secrets are being laid out for all of us
and valuable treasures are ours to cease

So lets call together a moment of silence today
 an hour or two just to be free
And see what's really out here for all of us
in the land of quietness and mystery
For then we will see all of the elements,
and the sands that rest below our feet
We will be able to touch every single molecule of air
and hear all its messages so sweet

It's not just for the poetic or artistic one
or the songwriter or creator of rhyme
To bask in the beautifulness of everything
or to appreciate each second  of time
There is a healingness inside of all of the stillness
and a wholeness inside of the hour
That knows no noise of the temporal
but is enveloped by the Infinite Ones power..

So, will you be still, for a moment?

Come and rest Here....

Are you tired and feeling weary: exhausted beyond your normal wear?
Are there moments even hours when you've done more than your share?
Come and rest here, come and sleep here in these arms of lasting grace.
I'll  refresh you and sustain you. Come and sleep here: I have space...

I have seen you, so many times now: dragging heavily, your long long day..
You will wake up and start off running; but barely crawl the rest of the way
Come and be here: in My Presence; for I have what it is you need:
Away from everything, away from running: you'll receive it all: indeed

It is true, my dearest creature, that this work is necessary for your life
But it is challenging and destructive, when your pace becomes a wielding knife....
Won't you slow down and smell those roses,  allow yourself some needed rest?
I am waiting and I am calling... Won't you become My special guest?

Let us be grateful for all that we've got

Pull open your curtains and look at the sky
Beautiful sunlight greets you and I
Sometimes its cloudy, sometimes it's not
Let us be grateful for all that we've got

Bright beautiful sunrises and birds in the tree
Melodies of morning for you and for me
Plants that are soothing and others that are not:
Let us be grateful for all that we've got

Raindrops that greet us or hot summer days
Winds that can demolish or calm all our ways
Boisterous bellowing from a lava so hot
Let us be grateful for all that we've got

Mornings or evenings or  hours after noon
Earth will surprise us with beauty or bloom
Natural disasters or horizons unsought
Let us be grateful for all that we've got

Our litany continues each time that we write
For beauty and wonder is ever in sight
We mustn't be blinded by things that are bought
Let us be grateful for all that we've got

It's time....

Look into the moments and the hours of each day
See the many wonders and the miracles along the way
Awesomeness and beauty and loveliness sublime
God is ever present in each minute of our time...

Count the many seconds and the elements and the sands
Countless are the marvels that are exuding from His Hands
Everywhere and anywhere and wherever we may be
God is placing miracles: we have only to look and see

Time is slowly passing and our days on earth are too
Ample is the timing and the space for me and you
We have to make the best of it, the best of every day
Let us live and laugh and love and inspire others our way

Thousands upon thousands..

In the stillness and quiet that precedes each new day
Thousands upon thousands of angels light the way
Speaking not audibly and singing not loud
Their voices and presence, are  more powerful than a crowd

While slumber still holds us and sleep is still near
Angelic winged creatures are invisibly here
Watching and waiting and guarding us all
See with your mind's eye, who's awaiting your call....

Though dangers are present, both far and both near..
There are powerful protectors ever ready to hear
Listening and guiding and being our shield
Sweet guardian angels are ever ready to field...

He holds us steady and He makes us strong

The storms they came with their frightful sight
And the winds they blew amid flashes of light
The thunders, they roared and they shook our land
Yet, after all of this, we could still rise and stand

For we have that Someone who truly cares
Someone Who loves us and is always there
He holds us steady and He makes us strong
Our God is present our whole life long

The times were hard and the days  were long
The people we had trusted had led us wrong
The money was failing and our health  was too
Yet, despite this all, we could smile it's true:

For we have that Someone who truly cares
Someone Who loves us and is always there...
He holds us steady and He makes us strong
Our God is present our whole life long

And when doubts are many and friends are few
We can lift our eyes and gaze on You
For You are the Creator the Spirit the Son
Whose Life is breath for everyone...

For we have that Someone who truly cares
Someone Who loves us and is always there...
He holds us steady and He makes us strong
Our God is present our whole life long

Return again...

Return again to the little things
To fun to laughter and the heart that sings
Return again to those slower times
When thoughts could create the purest rhymes..

For our lives have become  so busy, so loud
We're stuck in  traffic; we're lost in the crowd
We've bartered our happiness, we've lost our way
The rush, the world, is manipulating our day

Return again to the little things
To fun, to laughter, and the heart that sings
Return again to those slower times
When thoughts could create the purest rhymes

It's true that we're wealthier; we have it all
But time in diminished;  encounters are small
We work and we work and we stick to the grind
At the end of the day what peace do we find...?

Return again to the little things
To fun, to laughter, and the heart that sings
Return again to those slower times
When thoughts could create the purest rhymes

Do we need  it so much to make our way:
The hours,  the anguish, the overloaded day?
How much is really needed: and what are our needs?
The world creates  answers,. and plants its own seeds..

Return again to the little things
To fun, to laughter and the heart that sings
Return again to those slower times
When thoughts could create those purest rhymes..

The Heavens, they're singing their lullaby
Soothing our spirits as the angels try
To call out within us and point out the way
Needs are not wants and the night is not day...

Return again to the little things
To fun, to laughter and the heart that sings
Return again to those slower times
When thoughts could create those purest rhymes...

And so: You are

Dedicated to a very special person on her birthday 

Before you saw the light of day before you could even breathe
God saw the moment you would be born; He saw it: do you believe?
He whispered your name into our time and He spoke your days and years
He fashioned you before the world began: He knew them, all your tears

So it is that we, should celebrate and should  call to mind: your day
The moment, before your start began:  the hour you came our way
Like a bundled mass of cells and  atoms; a conjoining of molecules
You came into this great big world and your family received the news

You grew into the person you are: and you created your path in time
People who knew you would be so blessed; the angels would sing your rhyme
The world is so much better now and the earth is recording your life
The angels are counting them, one and all: the blessings you multiplied

All for our happiness

Slowly the darkness is disappearing from sight
And vision is clearer for we can see light
Beauty and wonder and an outstanding glow
Emerge from our morning and blessings all flow...

The dew on the dancers that touch everywhere
Creates a new sparkle the glows here and there
Plantlets and tree limbs and flowering plants
Glow with a radiance that invites us to dance..

Slowly the breezes and the sounds of the trees
Set out to show us what nobody sees
That everything is ordered and everything is
Part of the picture that makes up our bliss..

It's simple as prayer...

Words from the Heavens are falling to earth
Landing on creatures and creating rebirth
Plantlets and elements and insects galore
Everything is echoing God's goodness and more

Morning and evening and night time and day
Everything is whispering: has so much to say...
Carrying God's wisdom and carrying God's love:
Creatures and creation are gifts from above..

Must we be rushing and must we have noise
Have we some moments to hear our God's voice
To hear what is whispered and  see what is there....
We must take some time now: it's simple as prayer

The angels

While everyone is sleeping and the world is at rest
Angels are watching and await our requests
Guarding and  protecting and being our peace
Sweet guardians, we thank you....You hear this the least

In daylight, at night time,  at work or at play
Spirits surround us and keep guard of our day
They're invisible but present; inaudible but there
Angels are guardians who will come with out prayer..

Friendly yet warning when reason requires
Angels, like conscience, will censure desires
They speak to our spirits and they speak to our heart
Present and ready to play their true part..

Morning Minutes

The sky smiled brightly with the glow of the sun
Who reached out across her to touch everyone
While warming the universe and warming the air
Beams of God's sunshine were found everywhere

Squirrels were romping and jumping around
Shaking the branches that ruffled with sound
Gathering their breakfast and storing some meals
Bushy tailed creatures were making small hills

Butterflies were fluttering and making their flight
Landing and dancing and creating a sight
Colorfully calling the flowers and the plants:
"Join us, oh join us and let us all dance..."

My duties were calling so  I bid them goodbye:
Goodbye Mr Sun and you clouds passing by
Goodbye Mister squirrel and butterflies too
I'll seek you again when my day work is through
