“Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.”      Henry David Thoreau

 

There’s time enough for everything

 There’s always time on hand

 At times I feel it pushing

 Those times I take a stand

 

For time is an illusion

Persistent though it be

While time reveals the patterns

In timelessness I’m Free

 

The time is now to rise and shine

To take the Breath Divine

To pause, feet planted to the earth

For Goodness sake, align

 

To map your course along the stream

Watch dragonflies on wing

To dangle feet, in Nature’s  pools

As crickets sweetly sing

 

 For time is here to serve me

 This constant, moving stream

 I use it to my liking

 I fish from it my dream

 

 It Is So and So It Is

I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”     Henry David Thoreau

 

Perpetual Thanksgiving

The Consciousness to Be

Grateful and Thankful

Of All that you see

 

 

The last song of evening

As song birds take flight

The blanket of stars

That lights up the night

 

 

The chorus of crickets

That fills every space

The breeze that refreshes

The calm and the grace

 

 

Perpetual Thanksgiving

To Feel as you gaze

To drink in with wonder

To live in  “Amaze”

 

 

The sun rising golden

The bird’s morning song

The fresh kiss of dew

The feeling “Belong”

 

 

The butterfly winging

The purr of the cat

The child’s laughing smile

Be Thankful for that

 

 

Perpetual Thanksgiving

To Feel as you go

To Breathe in each moment

And honor your flow

 

 

The highs and the lows

The ups and the downs

Don’t name what is showing

Just Trust, good abounds

 

 

The body is speaking

When Energy wanes

Attention to “Where”

Brings Soulful new gains

 

 

Through eyes that behold

Through hearts that expand

Perpetual Thanksgiving

Is ever at hand

 

 

It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

” Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalm 23:67
Through time and space I’ve traveled
Setting foot on this terrain
I use them both as avenues
Yet unlimited I remain
Eternity, my birthplace
No beginning and no end
My choices surely infinite
When Mind I carefully tend
The treasure chest is open
And Truth outpours to me
Embodying what’s given
Will ever set me free
Transformed, I know the permanence
Of Heaven here on earth
Expressions of this Infinite Mind
Through each is given birth
And Blessings fall like petals
Reality revealed
When my mind joins the One Mind
No thing will be concealed
And surely Goodness follows me
With Mercy ever near
Abiding in the Presence
Eternity is here
It Is So and So It Is

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
Henry David Thoreau
Do you see the Beauty of the butterfly’s wing?
Do you see when the morning dove lifts?
Do you notice the curl of petals that fall?
Do you see everything as God’s gifts?
Are your eyes open now to the Miracle of Life?
Are you seeing your world as it is?
Are you thinking the thoughts that connect you to Source?
Are you feeling Divine’s every kiss?
Do you find the Joy in the eyes of the child?
Do you laugh with the rising sun?
Do you glow with Love and sit with Peace?
Do you know that this life is for fun?
Are your eyes open now to magnificence?
Are you seeing that Heaven’s right Here?
Are you thinking the thoughts of Eternity?
Are you feeling and drawing it near?
Do you see the diamonds in the morning dew?
Do you notice the hummingbird’s flight?
Do you feel the Peace in the mountain lake?
Do you gaze out and see the True Light?
It’s not what you look at that shapes your world
Reflections of what is inside
Your deepest thoughts and feelings
Take form for your viewing outside
It Is So and So It Is

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”  Martin Luther King, Jr.

The starless midnight

Dissolving Now

As Daylight surely breaks

 

The dawn of Truth

Emerging Now

Gives Light, that overtakes

 

This gentle rise

O’retaking Now

Dissolves the dark and then

 

The flame of Love

Heartwarming Now

Gives Happiness again

 

The veil is lifting

Seeing Now

A view of life that’s more

 

The Light of Mind

Transforming Now

Gives all an open door

 

The daybreaks bright

For Peace is Now

The final word is Love

 

And Brotherhood 

Is Known right Now

The Truth we’re worthy of

 

It Is So and So It Is

“I want to know God’s thoughts. The rest are details.”
Albert Einstein
I want to know God’s thoughts
For Here is where Truth lies
Like golden threads announcing
Emerging Butterflies
I want to know God’s thoughts
In stillness they arrive
The whispers of Eternity
The voice within the dive
I want to know God’s thoughts
To peer beyond the veil 
To see the Miracles untold
In Oneness, to inhale
I want to know God’s thoughts
To speak with Heart and Soul
Aware, Alert, Creating
Vibrations of the Whole
I want to know God’s thoughts
With Mind centered in Peace 
The Essence and the Heart of Love
The Goodness, the Release
I want to know God’s thoughts
The rest are just details
Moments scattered, caught in Time
Markers, paths and trails
I want to Know God’s thoughts
Let God Be God as me
The image and the likeness
Magnificent and Free
It Is So and So It Is
So Be It
