Broadly Speaking

Her words, colorful and imprecise,

splashed across the canvas

of my mind, leaving behind

a masterpiece 

of verbal impressionism.


Paradigms Matter

What would our world be like

if we made a paradigm shift

from “mind over matter”

to “mind befriending matter”?


So It Goes

We flounder in a sea of possibility,

afraid we’ll drown before 

we reach the safe shore of certainty.

With a happy sigh, we finally land,

only to look up and see the dark clouds

of unknowing hovering even here.


Sunday reflection . . . . I just helped him cry.

Would that we were all this wise.


There was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
“Nothing, I just helped him cry.”

In The Heat Of The Moment

I was so busy

complaining about the slow 

moving traffic, I

forgot to offer thanks for

 my air-conditioned car.



Where The Gold Lies

After a lifetime chasing rainbows,

I finally got still enough

to hear a deep voice within

softly say  “Welcome home”.


In The Scheme Of Things

Whether we’re aware or not,

the sun will rise,

the sun will set

and likewise the moon.

The earth will turn on its axis.

How humbling to be a part

of this larger picture of which

we have little awareness

and over which

we have no control.
