What Love Made

Take a look all around you

And with open wide open eyes

Heart open and present

Recognize what love made.

~

Love made two beautiful girls

With sparkling blue eyes

Hair of golden color

Smiles as wide as the sea.

~

Love made the sunrise this morning

Turning the clouds to vibrancy

Of oranges and pinks

Reminders of the brilliant day ahead.

~

Love is everywhere, present in all things

Turning buds into flowers, chicks into birds

Rising and lowering the tides

Burning up the old and creating space for the new.

~

This is what love made

See it right before your eyes

Marvel at in your sight

Express your gratitude for a world enveloped in love.

A Tribe

She walked in the room
Breathed deeply
I am at home
This is my tribe.
*
Hearts were wide open
Love flowed everywhere
She looked with all of herself
Third eye awareness.
*
How many lifetimes
Had they met in this way?
A cosmic consciousness
To love, serve, remember.
*
Rooted together
Healing the self and other
Growing stronger each day
A tribe to call home.
*
She walked out of the room
Carrying with her
The tribe’s light
Rooted in loving, serving, remembering.

So simple

In this warm house

I give thanks today

For the very simple things

Which have come my way.

~

A warm fire crackles

As drizzle melts icy snow

The aroma of many foods cooking

These simple things I know.

~

I open my heart with love

And let the light shine in on us

I recognize with great gratitude

All we need not now discuss.

~

The challenge is now to keep coming back

To these simple things that matter

For when suffering barges in

The heart like glass may shatter.

~

So I shall return again, again, again

To a space of gratitude and love

And recognize all simple blessings

Bestowed from high above.

 

 

Gratitude Moment

What a beautiful place
To live, work, play
So blessed to be surrounded
By God’s beauty each day.
*
I breathe in the light
That peaks through a rain filled cloud
I notice cool air, leave changing
I pray and say Amen out loud.
*

Sometimes I don’t know why I am here
What brought me so far from home
But days like this, I can embrace the now
Not worry why so far I had to come.
*
Thank you for the lessons
The love, the light, the pain
The chance to keep starting over
Love, serve, remember again.

Noticing

Taking a moment, looking around
Blue sky
Small clouds
Green trees, some leaves changing already
Breathing in
Watching
A moment to just wait and be
For this moment, I can sit
And not do
And not worry
And not project
I can use my eyes to just see this world
As it is
Where I am at
In this very moment
I notice
The leaves waving in a gentle breeze
The sounds of summers last crickets, bees, and birds
Far off traffic, cars gliding by ever few minutes
People walking
A breeze slips through my open window
Was it there before?
I notice life moving time marching on somehow
Both with and without me
Even as I sit and watch
Things are changing
In a moment I will step away
Become one of the walking
Head through a doorway, a meeting
I notice, the small evolution of the world
With every breath, with every step, with every skin caressing late summer breeze
I notice, I am, both the same and changing.
