When you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence.

-it finally happened, woke up this morning thinking, what tragedy,travesty happened,or what troubled part of the world would be hurting today. I am a realist. I do not put my head in the sand when there is wrong being done to anyone. I am a hopeful peacekeeper, I am empathetic to others hurt. I am [...]

To Ancient Evenings..

to ancient evenings and distant music... to lost moments, and future times... to hope of true love never being forgotten, and songs of sadness silenced from broken hearts.. to happy tunes, and smudged in landscapes. to horizons on oceans, and stars falling off into the sea.. to dreams of peace landing inside of you and [...]

the Smell of Swollen Particle Board

Even though the rain has gone and skies are blue again, there is an after that remains to be seen, a now that digs into the true grit of your work ethnic. The time that you will see who comes to your aid, the ones in your life that holds you up when your legs [...]

Persisting

- to produce something special as the wave is to the shore. a gentle kiss to be felt, and the slow ripple of sensation that lingers back out to sea. repetition is joyful only when the motion is softly spoken,and the echo of belonging is slowly laid to rest. where you lay is up to [...]

Soul

A difficult situation no matter what form it takes is designed to break down your own rigid emotional patterns that don't fall apart just because one morning you get up and say, "Ah, today I'm going to throw it all away"... Precisely at that moment when you come to grips with your own limitations and [...]

Joy

We refuse the few moments of pure joy from former cracks in the conversation of what has been deemed ours as sad verses of experiences. What we were born into-the molds, the cards we are dealt. The protection of those padded walls surely contain with a soft firm grip the true order we are born [...]

tin roof

the winds are thumping the tin roof so softly the kettle purrs back its soft refrain hiss of calm and all I can do is wonder if you are safe tonight safe in the arms of someone who held you as tight as I if those arms are not in place and if the calm [...]

happiness

a lot of people appear to be alive but their eyes are dead, makes me wonder what made their heart so cold to reflect that nothingness. sad really. Says a lot about my own peepers. I am working on it. my happiness that is. wonder if this is the reason that a lot of people [...]

7 year war

As we travel along life’s paths. Sometimes we don’t look left or right, or over our shoulder. We carry on with our journey,and travel with our innocence. How can the crossing of bullets fall. The injury. The injury which has already been experienced? A struggle for survival, a struggle for peace. Innocence lost. Inner war [...]

razor’s edge

When love packs you in like snow from Northern skies, your heart intertwines with those that survive your smothering. Distant bells chime names of those thrown into the light from other’s darkness. We don’t have all the answers, we are not supposed to. Flowing on that fine razor’s edge, we balance the will be, with [...]

ideas

Everyone has ideas. Everyone chooses to share them with others or not. Those that keep their ideas to themselves, better their lives if they are good ideas, or sometimes harms themselves for they acted upon the bad ideas. Those that share their ideas with others as a result directly either help or harm others. Basically, [...]

Solar Eclipse – august 21st,2017

hoping on the 21st as the entire world is looking up at the grandeur of our universe, that many will also look down deep and within our world,and make some changes.  realize how small many are acting in comparison to the grand scheme of our life's purpose, and realize that our small window to make [...]
