2010-04-09T05:53:26-04:00April 9th, 2010|

The gentle rustle in the trees whispers … It calls your name. But do you hear it? As subtle as spirit. “Come to me,” it calls As a dead leaf falls. Brittle. No longer useful… Each life on earth comes to an end But you should have no fear. When [...]

2010-04-08T05:56:13-04:00April 8th, 2010|

Humility – yes, a virtue When you check your pride. The need to feel more important Is something you can’t hide. Pride comes when you do feel Your separation from your brothers Thinking you are somehow best In how you relate to others. It may be in the things you [...]

2010-04-03T06:02:22-04:00April 3rd, 2010|

This morning I asked a question and the answer came in rhyme. I felt as if the poem were addressed specifically to me because it spoke of the twitching finger which happens to me so often. Other than that detail, the poem is universal, but I asked for another anyway, [...]

Poem #256 – Turn the Other Cheek

2010-04-02T06:03:49-04:00April 2nd, 2010|

When someone does you wrong, Turn the other cheek. Some would say it’s folly. Some might think you weak. For what’s the value there? Why forgive another’s acts? Just try it once and send out love, Then see how he reacts. Your Bible says to do this, But most find [...]

Sheep bleat; donkeys bray. Each speaks in its own way. Flowers bloom; water flows. In their movement, life it shows. All of creation tells a story. Where there’s life, you’ll find God’s glory. Take a breath and hold it in. The greatest truth is there within. Breath is life and [...]

Poem #252 – Nature’s Struggle

2010-03-29T04:07:57-04:00March 29th, 2010|

I find this poem interesting in that it's not something I normally focus on, yet obviously the spirit world does ... Smoke stacks spew their bilious fumes Polluting your air. Does no one care? Fish swim in streams Turned green But not natural. There’s nothing natural in a scene Where [...]

2010-03-24T04:14:13-04:00March 24th, 2010|
