Upright

Shadow surfer copy.jpg

When the heart sings, once again,
 it's first song, we can then 
pull up our roots. 

Research in human behavior indicates that we are healthier and happier and that we live longer, richer lives if we have a sense of purpose or if we feel we have a mission that guides our contribution to the world.

Join Larry Dillenbeck and I for our next “webversation” (a webinar because we present some of our ideas and a conversation because we open it up for dialogue). 

When we strip the mask from
our forgotten face, we can then charm 
the mysterious stranger 
we thought we knew 
as ourselves. 

When we turn the mirror inside out,
we can lift the lid on our calling 
and bank on that fearless desire
and foolish longing for love 
to open our eyes to the beauty 
of this world 

When the spirit finally wakes 
from it's sweetened slumber, 
we can, at last, take the next step
 in our evolution and walk
upright on the earth.

Measure Of Your Moments

Measure Of Your Moments

For most of us, the clock dictates our life, serving as the reference point for daily activities and the common denominator for organizing collective effort. Often, it takes over our lives becoming more than a reminder of what to do when and, instead, serves as a meter for meaning and a measure of our self-worth. Woe to those who "waste time" whiling away their lives on what the world judges as trivia, (like the writing of poetry)...

Unspoken

Unspoken

We have all felt the fear and trembling, the shyness, the precious vulnerability, at the thought of sharing what is in our hearts. If we are able, in that moment of truth, to let the speaking of our heart with pure intent be its own completion, that act of courage frees the whole flock and our spirit soars. What truth lives caged in your heart waiting for you to give it a voice?

Cathedral of Silence

Cathedral of Silence

To sit in silence is one of the most beautiful and profound experiences. If you still yourself long enough to dip below the noise of the world, to listen beyond or between your own chatter, you can sit at the edge of silence, which is the backdrop of creation. I wrote Cathedral of Silence in one piece after after meditation with a friend. The poem offers a time to reflect: What is your prayer of the heart? What is your prayer for the world?

Foolish Notion

Foolish Notion

I am an optimist and, despite the massive evidence to the contrary (the deadly wars, the daily violence, and the climate of madness we have created with each other and the world), I still believe love will eventually conquer all. It’s not really a Christmas poem, but it seems fitting right now, given all that is going on in the world. Are you an optimist?What do you think is needed for us to survive as a species on this planet?

The Demon Of My Everyday Life

The Demon Of My Everyday Life

Despite years of personal work and all the effort I put into changing limiting beliefs, I still find myself overlooking the most obvious ones. I rarely get angry about big things, but I rile against little inconveniences and petty things. I accept big things as out of my control, as examples of the greater forces in life at work. But I attach a big "should' to little things: the computer should work perfectly, the ink should flow smoothly. This poem asks: How can I be the hero of my own story if I shy away from the demon of my everyday life?
