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.

Sometimes the dark


Sometimes it takes the dark 
to make you appreciate the light...

In the shade of trust


Come sit a while in this quiet place with me.
Set aside the heat of all those resentments and irritations,
and linger in the shade of trust,
the cool of knowing we're watched over, and loved.

Lift your hearts


We lift our hearts to the light,
welcoming the dawn of a new day.

Wisdom of the birds


Let us listen to the wisdom of the birds:
alert, watchful, and ever present,
undistracted by the machinations of the mind,
they know first hand their oneness with all being.

Home to joy


And then at last, at the end of the day,
we run home to joy and love...

The call of desire



For those of us who long to feel safe,
It takes courage to heed the call of desire;
To bloom when everything in us
Seems eager to stay curled in a bud...

Beauty in balance


The dark, the light, the in-between --
It takes a balance of them all
To bring out the beauty in each.

Moving toward the light


The obstacles ahead all seem to shrink
as we move inexorably toward the light...

Closing the gap


Born into oneness, we chose our separate ways
and yet at heart are still so much alike.
When will we find a way
to reduce the gap between us?

Distractions



Each of us, distracted,
on our way to other places, other tasks,
Might see that brief moment of connection 
As a reminder: the world is so much larger
Than we know or comprehend...

Rising to the light


... and that's the hope, isn't it --
that, whatever we encounter along the way,
we're always, always, rising to the light...
