The timekeeper

Come in and sat

Take the practice slowly

Not to worry

I will watch it all


I will watch the time

I will watch your pose

I will remember to bring you back

I will listen for the chime


The chime from the mother

Ringing inĀ  my head

I will wait for it

And let you know when


You can just breathe there

Be there in peace

With nothing to worry over

I will watch the time

We need a world of peace

We need a world of peace

Of connection

Of understanding that

We are one


We need a world of love

Where people reach out

To one another

With full and open hearts


Everybody must be taught

To acknowledge the differences

Release the sufering

Accept life deeply


We need God’s love

Open your heart

Feel it here now

Full of healing light


We have the capacity

For this love and light filled world

Surround us in the light

Fill this world with peace.


Boston, April 15, 2012.

Waiting for Spring

Long cold winter

snow, ice, rain , wind, sleet

Move into mud, thick and sticky

Gray skies


Where has the sun gone

Somewhere there is green

Elsewhere there are flowers

Not here


A small green shoot pushes up

From the dark cold ground

A force stronger, immense

Stronger then me


Then another and another

Pushing skyward

Moving boundaries

Landscape changing


Moving toward heaven

Reaching for sunlight

The flower emerges

Blossoms into Spring
