The absence and return


Life comes in waves, and circles round,
the seasons come and wash upon the shore
to slide away and then roll in again. 
Revel in the splash, the swell; the absence and return.

What we value


What is it that you value most?
What's golden to you may just be something 
someone else would just describe as yellow.
Don't let that make it less valuable to you.

The arc of time


In the course of any given day, some part of life 
will be fully lit while others are still in shadow,
hands cupped, and waiting for the light. Be patient: 
in the arc of time that radiance will come again to you.

What bright truth?


What is it that you see that no one else observes?
What bright truth is visible to your eyes alone,
and how will you share that understanding with the world?

Never ordinary


You may think of yourself as ordinary, 
But in my eyes you are glowing
with life and beauty.

A narrow viewpoint


Watching from the safety 
of our own unique perspectives,
we might assume we're seeing 
everything there is to see..

All that you've been given


May the fog of indecision lift,
and the day spread out before you
with an open invitation to appreciate 
all that you've been given, here and now.
