“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.”  Khalil Gibran
We learn our lessons, day by day
And nothing here is “wrong”
The contrast provides food for thought
And Thoughts bring us along
Each day brings Light into the dark
And Breath, a vacuum fills
We stand upon a mountaintop
That rises from the hills
And Oceans touching many shores
Meet rock as well as sand
They wash away the dross of life
Perfection is at hand
The contrast is astounding
Variety abounds
Diverse, yet singular are we
As Gratitude is found
Our teachers, they are many
When open eyes can see
For often it is contrast
That truly sets us free
We learn our lessons, day by day
And nothing here is “wrong”
The contrast provides food for thought
Now Feeling, come along
It Is So and So It Is

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”  — Kahlil Gibran
How Beautiful these spacious skies
These plains of gold and green
How Beautiful these forests stand
Expressions of Supreme
Supreme Intelligence that spins
Reality from thought
Supreme expansions in a world
That’s Limitless we’re taught
How Beautiful the Mother’s smile
These babes upon the breast
How Beautiful these open hearts
Reflections of Loves best
Love lighting every heart and mind
Illumines Unity
Love’s central note, the Symphony
Strikes chords that set us Free
How Beautiful this life we lead
These opportunities
How Beautiful the Light we shine
For all Eternity
It Is So and So It Is
So BE it

“For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.”  Khalili Gibran


From mountaintop rains

From mists on the shore

From tears that we shed

A river does pour


It’s flowing downstream

It’s moving  ’round rocks

It’s flowing and growing

There’s nothing that blocks


A path through the valleys

With verdant green banks

A home there for many

A place giving thanks


Now gathered and mighty

It’s cut its own way

Still aimed for the ocean

Where all rivers play


Reluctant at times

To leave the confine

The shore of the lake

Reflecting Divine


And yet it does move

And arrive at the Source

It’s splashing and crashing

It’s Joyous, of course


For Life, like the river

Moves through many forms

Like droplets of water

It ever transforms


And death is a story

Of joining the flow

Of bubbles becoming

One ocean.  Let go


It Is So and So It Is

” And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.” Khalil Gibran


 A world overflowing with friendship

 A community of friends

 A house with doors wide open

 An open road that never ends


 A morning that’s bright and refreshing

 An invitation ” Join in”

 A dawn that promises all

 A life calling you to begin


 An adventure into the Present

 An moment to laugh and play

 An experience to cherish 

 A  garden along the way


 A world of your creation

 Abundant with various parts

 A story of kindness and happiness

 A tapestry woven with  hearts


There is sweetness in our friendships

There is morning dew, refreshed

There is Love and Joy and Sharing

And it this we’re truly Blessed 


It Is So and So It Is

So Be It

” Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.” Khalil Gibran
Acceptance stands outside my door 
Welcoming, calling my name
Inviting me to enter
My birthright, ready to claim
Compassion is seated in comfort 
Peace now is taking my hand
Quieting my restless thoughts
Revealing my True Heartland
Awareness has wrapped me, holding me close
Awakening me from sleep
Giving me strength and surety 
Unlimited choice to keep
Imagination swirls the room
Painting such portraits of Love
Offering an unclouded lens
For this I am Worthy of
Surrender had joined the party
“Let go” is the song she sings
Melodies of the limitless
I’m soaring on Freedom’s wings
Life brings to me the many
And from this I find the One
My attitude affirming
That Life is supposed to be fun
It Is So and So It Is

” Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” Kahlil Gibran


It is beauty that wraps us

It is beauty you See

It is beauty reflected

In a heart that is free


The gift of the ages

The pathway to Peace

On our Beauty-full  journey

A heart gives and receives


In Heaven on Earth

In the heart of us all

A Beauty-full Spirit

An opening, a call


To welcome the Beauty

To cherish the Peace

To freely give Love

To know and release


Your face is the messenger

Of this Light in your Heart

Your smile is the signature

Of the Love you impart


The Light is within

The Beauty shines out

Be magnificent, Be fearless

That’s what Life is about


Is Is So and So It Is

“Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky,” Kahlil Gibran


From tiny seed that falls upon

The ground, fertility

A sprout now reaches for the light

For all the world to see


Without a thought, the sprout unfurls

Innately it does grow

Recorded in the halls of time

Its poem begins to show


From tiny sprout to mighty oak

Or apple tree that fruits

The tree that’s meant to spring to life

Methodically now roots


Digging deep within the earth

It claims its space and gives

It dances with the winds of change

Its poem is real, it lives


And daily they are written

Upon the sky you see

A life expressing destiny

Not shoulds, but “meant to be”


And reading poems now written

Upon the sky by trees

Awakens our innate desire

To live our “meant to bes”


Our passion seeks to fall upon

The ground, fertility

To sprout and reach up for the light

For all the world to see


This passion is our poem

To write upon the sky

With Love, with Joy, with Ecstasy

To lift our wings and fly


It Is So and So It Is
