Birth of "Can"

Rebirth of fresh surge of energy
Possibility raises more potential
New ideas expand and generate
Breath of life revives quiet souls

"Cannot" returns to its waiting
Resting in peace forever and again
Source of despair mourns alone
Heart releases pure fragrance

Liberation saturates the mind
Serenity calms constant chaos
Creativity lights up dark dreams
Courage sparks inovative ideas

Just As You Are…Come

Soul: Here I am
Life: I have been waiting for you

Soul: I have so much to ask
Life: I have a lot to share

Soul: Why is all this happening to me?
Would you do something?

Life: I have great reason and one day it will all make sense to you
Soul: Really? I am surprised at you!
Life: I already know how you feel

Soul: Is that how you care?
Do you even care?
Life: More than you can ever know

Soul: I am so angry with you, God
Life: My love for you will never fade

Soul: Whatever...
Wife perished, children gone astray
Lost everything, filed for bankruptcy
What more do you plan to take away

Life: Give me all your cares and fears

Soul: You are right, nothing makes sense
And you, you make the least sense, if any
Where are you in all this?

Life: Yah, I know it is hard to imagine

Soul: Is that a punishment?
Life: I discipline, I do not punish

Soul: For what now… lack of faith? lack of trust? huh
Life: All will make sense one day

Soul: You expect me to believe that?
Life: Your brokenness is real

Soul: Is that all you have to say?
Is that all you can do?
Is that supposed to help?

Life: I understand your pain

Soul: Are you even there?
Life: Believe it or not I am listening
Keeping talking to me
Tell me exactly how you feel
Stay with me awhile

Soul: Well you gonna have to do better than that 'cause I need more than that now

Life: Then ask, ask my child, for what it is you need
Soul: I have no clue how to pray right now
Life: You are doing just that!
Soul: Really? You are not mad at me for feeling the way I do?
Life: I call that honesty; saying “ oh it’s okay” right now would be far from the truth
Soul: I can’t say I am okay yet, far from it... you are correct and you begin to make some sense; I am beginning to feel abit relieved
Life: I am here to comfort you. Just as you are…Come

Soul: for that, I can already say a big thank you!

Another Fresh Start

Depth of the ocean world quake unrelentingly
Crashing waves of raging sea hum in the storm
Heartbeat of the gutsy wind throbs earth’s core
Midnight blue clouds paint orange skyline black

Lightening exploded in tiny pieces of numinous
Cosmic drum roll resounded in heaven’s ceiling
Celestial theatre performs its intended intention
Mysterious sage of ancient ages refines creation

June 1, 2009

Wished I Had Known

I ask myself why, why, why?
What made him go this way?
A possible motive resounded
One that left me thinking

Beneath the fine appearance
Was one who’d been hurting
Maybe he thought no one cared
Or would not understand him

What could have been so painful?
Did he even try to talk about it?
Did he think he was beyond help?
What made him go over the edge?

Now I have all these questions
I wished I had some answers
But I am certain of one thing
He was a kind young fellow

I told him so on many occasions
But maybe that was not enough
Oh how I wish I had noticed
The pain behind his smiles

I take this as a serious warning
To observe what may go unsaid
Even if that’s the least I can do
To help someone along the way

May 28, 2009


Heat of hate ignited anger range
Lifeless surrogate perfect scheme
Echo of ego voices boastfulness
Unanimity in bewildered refuge

Repeated moment of old routine
Instituted in prime of innocence
Convoluted lifestyle coiled in fear
Whispers bellow in gentle wind

Abstractly composed laws useless
Layers of interpretation amusing
Frenzied demands baffle wisdom
Oddity of illusions quite elusive

Certainty of promise inaccessible
Secrets hide business of control
Inspired infinite made a choice
World collapsed from its strife

April 9, 2009

The Gap

Apprentice of the twilight
Expert of morning’s light
Mind divides night and day
Time baffled by cloudy sky

Moon and sun grace skies
It is only midday on earth
Essence glow gorgeously
Life reminisce of beyond

Between birth and tomb
Eternity caress memory
Precipice of death await
Friend of time unbound

Absolute peace and bliss
Abyss of living invite fear
Enjoy excursion of reality
Destiny of creation is life

March 18, 2009


Dark nights envelope moonless universe
The mind panic at winter's ruggedness
Spring dozes just a little while longer
Seasons seem confused

Blustery wind busily whisks crispy air
Teapot hastily brews pick-me-up tonic
Its aroma cauterize the season's chill
Sweet consolation

Alas! The sun's warmth regains meaning
Frozen streams gurgle; trees wave in bravado
Pelican scoops up its sumptuous meal
Earth nourish its young

Blue skies steer away the clouds of despair
Nature’s cool air approve of refreshed earth
Gardens, fragile yet beautiful, grace the mind
Receipt of new life

February 9, 2009

Shift in Perception

Naked trees and branches dance
Wind sets tone
Flurries provide confetti pieces
Passion releases

Oh, what merry music birds play
Letting me interpret
Sometimes the lessons are crucial
I even call spirit a lunatic

Perception shifts
I rest in life’s sacred bosom
With hindsight at my side
I dream with eyes open wide

January 1, 2009

Rich Risks

Maintaining awareness of unselective compromising
Unsacrificing today’s gladness for tomorrow-delight

Unlearning bludgeoning nuances of circumstances
Unbinding the body from constant conformity

Liberating expressions from royalty grammar
Unidentifying with armoured expectations

Unleashing guarded etiquette and persona
Untrapping mind from its turmoil of lack

Realigning dreams with the cosmic wheel
Untangling emotions from yo-yo stance

Unchaining the integrity of spontaneity
Remapping the importance of instinct

Redeeming experience from extortion
Reuniting living with the joy of bliss

Unwinding the pendulum of time
Unmasking soul of ascribed roles

Ungnarled thoughts of disappointment
Harvesting abundant ardour and vigour

Planting seed of inspirational intentions
Fertilizing every encounter with rich risk
Circumstances that continue to mould life’s outlook into shape
Treasure that the world cannot fathom giving or taking away

December 31, 2008

Simplicity of Life

Enraptured in its flow of love
Life situations often bittersweet
Just when I thought this was it
Joy showed up most unexpectedly

With unfathomable sincerity
Life revealed its meaning
A chance and choice to witness
More qualities of authentic spirit

With chambers opened up wide
Clarity of its whispered voice
Heart invited me to step inside
Acceptance was an absolute choice

Divine guidance beckoned
Spirit soar to the stillness
Longing and desiring quenched
Wellspring of life spilling over

December 30, 2008

Beyond Polarity



Uncompromising surrender to spirit

Not good enough-Too good to be true
Good enough to just be

Too educated-Not educated enough
Naturally astute

Ongoing conception

Underachiever- Overachiever
Different strokes for different folks

Too conservative- too unorthodox
Be just the way spirit likes it

Ignorance- Oblivion

Good- bad
What is, is what is


Blame- Fault

Fear- Brave

I am that I am

Too old-Too young
I am that I am

Stupid Suffering

Full freedom from follish fears

Stupid- smart
Awfulizing mentality

Relative to mind

In black-In white

December 29, 2008


Wings grew on dreams feet
Feathers covered hopes arms
Great mystery unfurls its plan
Life soar in full span of time

Energy of rapture filled earth
Enthusiasm replaced misery
Nature rests in creation womb
Soul quietly enjoy the bosom

Mind marries with eternal spirit
Body approved of the intimacy
Heart pumps with renewed zest
Spirit within fulfills its intention

Cosmos reveals its natural world
Everyday ordinariness of events
Create extraordinary conditions
Work of art in pure imagination

December 28, 2008

Hip, Hip, Hip, Hooray!

River of life goes on with its flow
Saying hello bye it rolls along
Quietly, mystically, unwaveringly

River of life exists wild and free
Starting point and unto infinity
Earth is beaming and bubbling

River of life mosey untroubled
Mapping paths on its course
Many detours along the way

River of life dwell in eternity
No matter what time impart
Light still outshines darkness

December 27, 2008

Broken Vessels

Let no one ever stop you
From what God plans to do
Using you talent in its favour
Working as a vessel of honour

If doubt about this truth exists
And facts tempts you to dismiss
Life’s very most infallible pact
Read the historic biblical facts

The same book used to preach hell
Is the bearer with good news to tell
When the mind shares its poor lies
Let spirit help optimism stay alive
King David failed very miserably
By sleeping with someone’ s lady
Job accused and cursed the almighty
For losing all his wealth and dignity

Paul persecuted and killed God’s people
He crowded jails before filling temples
Esther, Rahab and the lady at the well
Each lived to have a true story to tell

Daniel interpreted dreams without fail
Jonah survived in the gigantic whale
And went on to be a great missionary
Peter was the one Jesus gave the key

Moses ran from his calling as child
And returned after being in the wild
Father Abraham did not have a clue
About what God intended to do

Nebuchadnezzar tried putting God down
Jeremiah thought he was way too young
Sarah herself believed she didn’t belong
And began singing her mournful song

So let God use your ups and downs
He knows how to use them as crowns
Invite him to work with your frowns
And turn pain to purpose all day long

December 26, 2008

No Burdens Please

pointing fingers
jumping to conclusions
being judged by another

who needs that!

making assumptions
finding reason to accuse
labeling and heckling

who needs that!

fighting and revolting
badly bruised mind
crushed body and soul

who needs that!

running on empty
burning candles ends
competition and comparism

who needs that!

stifled choice
lifelong longing
utopia and slavery

who needs that!

promises of promises
begging and starving
strive until doomsday

who needs that!

December 25, 2008

Cradle of Liberty

The face of war sneers as it burns with anger
Innocent victims wail and groan while anguish
Terrorizes and distorts once peaceful lands
Horror and fear reign

Day and night, violence and riots plague the world
Mental and moral battles breathe out fiery threats
Brutality shakes hands with greed and hatred
Lives lay in ruin

Earth trembles furiously from munitions
Human remains lay in fragmented pieces
Tombs of rubble and nameless epitaphs
There lie fallen ones

Life’s final cry is to cease war and hatred
Let the fire of love burn within instead
Memories of such crime it tries to erase
Live in one accord

December 24, 2008

the quiet mind

A single white rose presented itself
Who are you she asked of the image
With hands rising to reach in for it
Petals transformed to a ray of light
Astounding radiance of brightness

Entertained with visions of heaven
The quietly busy theatre of the mind
Serenely enjoying calm gently breeze
The intensity dissolved the silhouette
Initially starring in the mirror of time

Gradually the mind’s purity glistened
Fire of passion combusted calamity
Self-love fashioned into acceptance
The mind’s eye and rhapsody marry
Wonder filled nirvana with laughter

Nestled in the rolling stream of life
Serenity of sophisticated prominence
A calming treat of enhanced wellness
Permeated with abundance of richness
An everyday paradise of the quiet mind

December 23, 2008

Hey Dude

May you always be near and dear
As when you were on planet earth
Taking the breath away of all you met
Hugging the soul of the young and old
Everywhere your little feet wandered
While you waited to leave this world

Words can never fully express your
Impact on our lives
Let alone the impression you
Left imprinted in our hearts
In the short span of your life
As you journeyed this side of heaven
Making friends with all you met as you
Shared your handsomely captivating smile

December 22, 2008

Split Images

Menu of feelings and images lurked in his head
Myriad of scenes flashed before his eyes
He tried blinking at the sun hoping they’d disappear
Too much post trauma

Imprints of his memory are all that his eyes could see
Staring back at him were visions of life in battle
Quietly he sat in an attempt to clear his mind
Time seem not to care

A gently cleansing erased his woozy focal point
New scope invigorated his mental theatre
So captivating it made him become oriented
Way beyond mental flashbacks

Standing between yesterday and tomorrow
The veteran’s heart managed to smile awhile
Memory cannot fade without being tear-jerked
Life has set him free

December 21, 2008

Sanctified Soul

Plunged into a pit of perpetual purgatory
The fragmented mesh of the Adam and Eve net
Penalized for parent’s indulgence of instinct

For decades he roamed, moaned and groaned
In the manicured wilderness of guilt and shame
Nothing that he could do to erase regretfulness

Someone shared the most reassuring message
Life is not intended to cause anyone such misery
Living dully for transgression he did not commit

Streaks of paradise spark the life in his heart
He saw his existence in such new perspective
Reality perched in the doorway of his soul

Reclaimed his dignity and making wiser choices
Peace flooded his being with a chance to acquaint
Ransomed heart and soul vulnerable and wounded

Curious about the taboo of the purity of blissfulness
His mind pondered on love, sex, pregnancy and marriage
The experiments that brought forth new life into being

Grave infringement of his birthright as life’s treasure
Friendly streetwalker outcast by God-fearing pilgrims
Regain his immortality and deep respect for mortality

December 20, 2008

Blossom of Abundance

In the forest of the mind
Trees of despair flourish
Information grows there

In the forest of the mind
Unique ideas also flourish
Intuition grows there too

In the forest of the mind
Life willfully gave choice
A personal blend of each

December 18, 2008

Borrowed Words

Language of many borrowed words
Stitch and layout the ideas I compose
Where it came from, I know naught

The English Language I often sought
Savvy, eclectic, multilingual verbiage

Where it came from, I know naught
Still I am impressed with its helpfulness
Sewing, mending, decorating my ideas

December 17, 2008

Focal Points

Assertive behaviour
Can definitely encourage faith

Generate holistic ideas
joyful, kind motives

Nightly occurring periodic quietness
Reduces stressful thoughtlessness

Unending video watching
Exterminates youthful zest

December 16, 2008

Daily Special on Life’s Menu

Amid mix emotion and confusion
Realize also that life is worthwhile
Conjure joy and optimism of life

Calmly the heart thought loudly
Believe in yourself- love yourself
Just express your truth with love

Ever since my refined zest of life
Dark clouds of despair disperse
Happiness perfumes enthusiasm

This very joy keeps me trusting
What compassion has done in me
It can surely do for all humanity

December 15, 2008

Race of Time

Darkness chases the twilight
But soon another day is born
Light stalks the darkest night
Darkness chases the twilight
Moon and stars shine bright
The blazing sun left forlorn
Darkness chases the twilight
But soon another day is born

December 14, 2008


It is like a switch
One click
And a dark room
Lights up
And I see what’s inside

It is like a key
One turn
And a closed door
Opens up
And I see what’s inside

It is like fire
One spark
The coal ignite s
Flames blaze
And a fire is started

Ii is like salt
One pinch
And bland food
Becomes tasty
And the meal is enjoyed

It is like music
One note
Joins another
They blend in

And become symphony

December 13, 2008

Spectacular Sign

Stirs the heart and enriches it with love essence
Courageous, charismatic, adventurous, resilient
Open to accepting experiences of everyday living
Rejuvenate and rebuilds its instinctive abilities
Presents itself as a channel of vigour and poise
Integrity, respect, gracefulness, radiant beauty
Orchestrates life according to nature’s rhythms

December 12, 2008

Seasons and Reasons

Were it not for summer’s fallen leaves
Autumn and winter’s sub zero degrees
Earth may not be ready to sprout in spring
Or trees with leaves for summer’s breeze

Were it not for winter’s blizzards of flakes
Snowplough and zamboni wouldn’t be created
Hockey might not be such a famous game
Its sport stars may not have been heard of

Were it not for spring wind and showers
Sap would not flow to revive frozen trees
Flowers may not bloom in time for June
Wedding bouquet and gardens may be dull

Were it not for summer sun’s temperature
Veggies would not be so pretty on the plate
Fruits would not be such a plush juicy treat
Air conditioned luxury would be unheard of

Were it not for the spectacular fall colours
The natural beauty would have been boring
Even before the trees become undressed
Indeed every season is with good reason

December 11, 2008

state of the mind

People stumble in life’s busy pathway
Psychological obstacles stump others
Some people see things that eyes don’t
Because it’s not visible to the naked eye
I fumble and my mind becomes cloudy

I should sleep during the night, not during the day
What about the people who work during the night
If I slept through the night while I am working
Work throughout the day when I am sleeping
Did I sleep, work or was I wide awake dreaming

The glass is half empty when it is half full
When is it neither half empty nor half full
What if it is empty and I say that it is full
And when it is full, I insist that it’s empty
It is all up to how the mind want to see it

December 10, 2008

heart of the matter

Noise of gunshots blasts
Signal yet another shooting
Fatally wounding its targets
Or become forever paralyzed

Plague of such violence
Affects many more individuals
Than just victims of the crime
And those who pull the trigger

Sensitivity of the matter
Can never be simply solved
With added racial profiling
Nor enforcing tougher laws

Damage from the same harm
Can really begin to dwindle
When all underlying causes
Are no longer being ignored

The catastrophe is not simply
A masquerade of abhorrence
But love perfumed with gloom
And polluted disappointment

Life has not forgotten about us
We have chosen to wander off
It is using the sign of the times
To lead us back to its goodness

Integrity, peace, love, and respect
Can replace all discord and enmity
If we obey and adhere to life’s laws

December 9, 2008

Just Curious, my dear Cosmos!

If weapons were able to reason
Would they choose love or anger
Or war disguised as peacekeeping

If death had a voice, instead of a sting
Would it defend and debate its action
Or explain why it is the cause of grief

If wounds had the ability to gossip
Would they clarify the source of pain
Or make acceptance of what is, easy

If tears were a mirror on the wall
Would they reflect what’s in soul
Or the gaudy truth of the mind

If God revealed its humanness
Would he express fears about life
Or would I be disappointed in God

If I were to create my own idea of God
Would that really land me in purgatory
Or help me to R.I.P in heaven on earth

December 8, 2008

The Candle

Lit the lowly candle
Watched its flame
Shine so intensely
As it sparked to life

The candle’s burning wick
Glowed with such delight
It scared away the dark
Sending it into hiding

This minuscule candle
Showed me its strength
Conquering its contender
Right before my eyes

The mighty darkness
Was no close match
For the melting stick
And its big red flame

Darkness resigned
When it saw the light
What I could not see
Was right in my face

The candle winked
As if to say to me
I would be of no use
If I just stood there

I didn’t let the darkness
Nor my size frighten me
I just let my light shine
And dispel its delusion

December 7, 2008


Heavy droplets of rain
Fuse with trickling tears
Rolling down the stream
Cheeks have become

Cadence of falling rain
Trade places with tears
Rock-stiff muscles soften
Trapped emotions set free

Sunshine and pouring rain
Mingle like joy and sorrow
Comprehensive delight
Life afresh in Nirvana

December 6, 2008

Pleasant Paradise

Wholeness of memory radiate bliss
Vessel of soul echoes with laughter
Voice of innocence rests from strife

Letting go of need to restrain time
Revival of instinct hush ignorance
Cosmos resurrect life full spectrum

Eyes whisper secret of intelligence
Quiet attraction of sublime beauty
Forever instill the freedom of now

December 5, 2008


Words and images flirt
Senses stretch
Awareness arouses
Silly! You say

Words and images marry
Challenges scope
Creativity commands
Go places unknown

Words and images conceive
Spirit surges
Intelligence ignites
Meanings transform

December 4, 2008

In Eagle Style

Wings soar in fearless flight
Undisturbed by stormy plight
It cruises to celestial altitude
In majestic and graceful attitude

With warrior’s spirit and vision
Undistracted aim and mission
Spots its prey from the distance
Swoops to tackle in full stance

Then rises again to great height
To enjoy life in peaceful delight
So like an eagle, come what may
Rise above the strife of the day

December 3, 2008

confusion is nothing new

The rooster crowed
My cells renew
Many plants grew
What’s up with that!

Singular mouse, plural mice
Singular louse, plural lice
Singular house, plural houses
What’s up with that!

I bought some furnitures
And then tended the sheeps
Those nouns don’t even exist
What‘s up with that!

December 2, 2008

Intimate Connection

You followed me everywhere
To keep company on my journey
As words twirled in my mind
Like leaves on a windy autumn day

The days I eloped to trance land
You wooed me before bedtime
Even when I tried to toss you aside
Or did not pay any attention

Sometimes you came on real strong
Other times begging me to prolong
While you caressed my words and ideas
And wiped the tears from my cheek

Whispered in my ears to console me
Reminded me how much you care
And your desire to stay by my side
As you pleaded with me once again

Your look of disappointment
When I attempted to say goodbye
The playful way you jumped about
Hoping that I woke from my sleep

Your provoking persistence teased me
Each time you tickled my nerves
So I decided to give you another chance
This is something I will never regret

My hands reach for my cherry scented feather
Inspiration is at its peak potential
As I fall in love with you again and again
My dear poem

December 1, 2008

Challenge and comfort

Challenge is mankind best friend
Because it forces us to look for answers in places we never dreamt we'd go

Comfort is mankind’s worst foe
For it stands in the way of finding all we need to know

November 30, 2008

Move Along

Move along
Even when the noises and voices of ignorance
Haunt common sense
Even when things appear to disrupt your outlook
On destiny’s path
Move along

Move along
Even when your groans and moans disappear in the wind
Swallowed by silence
Even when your feet become blistered, achy
Calloused and swollen
Move along

Move along
Even when fantasies are void of passion
And life seems bleak
Even when clues are engulfed by smokescreen
Vision appears dim
Move along

Move along
Even when the tempest rages in vicious circles
In the wilderness
Even when your spirit is clouded by despair
Wondering where you are
Move along

Move along
When weariness is becoming your best friend
While faith takes leave
When zombies play jump around
In the middle of the night
Move along

Move along
Even when nothing looks palatable
With all the trimmings
When lonely won’t leave you alone
After the world caves in
Move along

Move along
Even when the pigment of imagination
Eludes all saneness
Even when the scariest idea
Tempts you to quit
Move along

Rest if you must
Just don’t give up

Move along
On the road less travelled
Move along
The staircase built within
Move along
On the darkest day
Move along
During the brightest night
Move along
Oh ye who are downtrodden
Move along

November 29, 2008


The pureness of a child at play
Splendor of a display of artwork

Kindheartedness of loving care
Childlikeness of the adult child

The rising and setting of the sun
Witnessing a chrysalis makeover

Hug and kiss that need no words
Intimate glow of an aroused soul

Inspiration that revives presence of bliss
Laughter that outshines embarrassment

The little things that brightens circumstance
The simple things that make life momentous

Indispensable understanding of life situations
Choices that improve the value of living life fully

Doing something that frightens the mind and surges soul
Optimism of willing to make every moment significant

November 28, 2008

Defy the logic

Taste with the eyes
Let the mind stand at attention
Smell with the ears
Watch the time capsule collapse
Feel with the nose
Intelligence takes its rightful place
Touch with the mouth
Enjoy life’s infinite deployment
See with the heart
Choreograph the dance to life's rhythm

November 27, 2008

Afresh, over and over again

Walk through the doorway of living
Turn on the enthusiasm of curiosity
Explore life as though the first time
Let nothing disrupt or deject

Let go of anxiety and set spirit free
Turn on excitement of letting life be
Digest each moment living ad lib
Let nothing interrupt contentment

Flourish in splendour and zest of life
Invigorate mind in soul’s sacred stroll
Dissolve ideas of hurt and punishment
Let nothing disguise life’s precious gift

Write a script straight from the heart
Negotiate with life in ardent confidence
Allow the cosmos attend to the details
Let nothing distract the intended result

Linger on and enjoy the business of living
Know that everything happens for a reason
Stay connected to the quiet voice of the soul
Let nothing disturb or deride the flow within

November 26, 2008

Life Agreement

Each time I awake to join life
Treasures wait with their greeting

Invigorating breath, nature, rising sun

Love is always ready to envelope me
Encouraging me to create and cocreate

Meal-and-heal cuisine, work of art, mentoring

Many years have gone by and bye
Each one always richer than the last

Challenges, personal growth, awareness

Life intends to woo my heart
When I awake to join life

Celebrate, appreciate, live fully

November 25, 2008

Celebrating each breath

I rise and greet another day
Not even knowing what to say
For though it looks cold and gray
I am just glad I see another day

A day dawn all new and fresh
I have no clue what comes next
Still, I will always do my best
I prepare to pass life’s test

November 24, 2008

Viva la vie

Can’t let the ball stay stuck in between time and space
Rollover and keep taking it syndrome is a lapse of sense
Let spirit soar joy up to par with zest for life adventure

Can’t just resolve to waiting for a better time than now
Strive and die to rest in peace is morbid in the nth degree
Steadfastly journey in heaven right here on earth each day

Can’t ignore now and expect a more fortunate tomorrow
Wish and pray for a better past is an insidious thing to do
Happiness is always ready to salvage and boost weary souls

November 23, 2008

epitome of life on earth

Feeling straddles between joy and tension of gloom
Childhood memories laden with innocent bloom
Ideas of better provoke the mind to continue going
Knowing fully well spirit wants soul to keep growing

Awed by the majesty and miracle of everyday living
Fragrance from brighter beyond awakens the being
Magic and wit make sense even crushed by cynicism
Gleaning a new sense of certainty amidst pessimism

Scared, sacred, heart finds all wonder in simplicity
Epitome of life on earth imbibe obsolete identity
Human family transform in meaning and substance
Becoming safe, secure pathways to elated elegance

November 22, 2008

Seeing Beyond

Do you really hate me?
Or is that just your cry
To help release your fears
I know that you are hurting
You think you have failed
That must be very crushing
But I want to tell you that
Beneath your human frailty
I see your great love for me

Do you really love me
Or is it just a disguise?
I heard you say I am wise
And you want the best for me
But then you turn and walk away
Your affection was just a ploy
In spite of all you do and say
I see through your plot to betray
The very person you claim to love

November 21, 2008

ignorance and panic

Troublesome combo
These two contenders

When you are tired
They show up in style

Give them a chance
They dry up all hope

Their bogus schemes
Steal all sound slumber

In the dark and unaware
Life gets tangled in mazes

Befriend wisdom and courage
Ignorance and panic disappear

November 20, 2008


without bread
sucks on rock hard honey
toil for more bread
deemed never to be eaten
by the breadwinner
without bread
toil to save economy
forfeit sanity, dignity, integrity
deemed never to be enjoyed
by the breadwinner

November 19, 2008


Hell does not use blazing fire
Nor does it employ brimstone
It uses lies, deception and fear
To trap lives with its disguise

Weakening soul and spirit
Its tactics set lives in limbo
Confuses the moral fibres
With believe or die tricks

Accuse life for killing dream
Punishing instinct innocently
Trade-off optimism for despair
Many murdered while alive

November 18, 2008


Mistakes that nudge soul inspiration
Opportunities that flirts with the mind

Decision to seek, to ask and, to knock
Searching for the clue that shields an answer

Courage to take hold of each moment
Knowing what to and what not to say or, do

Tears of joy that trickle down cheeks
Knowing that no burden can break the spirit

Trusting innersense even when on the brink
Enduring trials that strengthens awareness

Flaws that shrink when viewed with the heart
The painful sharpening now and then

Experience is everything that takes place along the way

November 17, 2008

End Product

From the struggles of life I gained strength
Because of pain and strain I gained power
Fear of rejection gave me the courage to be me
Isolation taught me to appreciate intuition
By taking the risk of claiming my life
I moved from the shadow into the light
Alternating between extreme moods
Taught me the best way to find balance
By not comparing myself to another
I came in touch with my true substance

Incredible Insight

Just when you thought you could take no more
Someone came along your side and help you see
All the wonderful gifts you can still enjoy
In spite of gray days

The breath of life, a strong and healthy physique
A new day to make yet another fresh start
Loved ones who share nature’s tapestry of life
Somewhere to call home

Just when you thought there is absolutely no point
To even dream you could ever go on
Someone came along your side and help you see
Treasures to behold

The gift of expression, arts and talents
Wisdom, aptitude, magnificent beauty
These are just a few of wonderful things
Life situations offer

Imprisoned Rage

Imprisoned rage locked far away
Deep within me it tried to stay
For decades it remained contain
With way too much unresolved pain
Tried deftly to keep it at bay
But it spewed out like molten clay
When it could no longer retain
Imprisoned rage

Destroying some lives every day
This rage can cause social decay
Leaving the soul weary and drain
Even cause some to go insane
When the state of mind goes astray
Imprisoned rage

Hideout Spots

Daniel spent the night in a den with the lions
Because that is where God was waiting for him

Jonah was in the whale for three days and nights
Because that is where God was waiting for him

Joseph’s brothers sold him as a slave in Egypt
Because that is where God was waiting for him

Moses was in the desert for forty years of his life
Because that is where God was waiting for him

The three brothers were in the blazing furnace
Because that is where God was waiting for them

Tobit was deported from Israel to Nineveh
Because that is where God was waiting for him

Paul spent his best years in prison writing books
Because that is where God was waiting for him

You and I walk over the waves of disturbance
Because that is where God is waiting for us

Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle
Oddly broken
Perfect fit
Each one plays its role

Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle
Uniquely designed
Innately connected
Life lessons presents solutions

Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle
Intentionally created
Indispensable contribution
Collectively reveals wholeness

Justice and Peace

Fight for justice
Then pray for peace
Blameless enjoy no release
From plight and anguish
How else will one find peace
Or surmount injustice
a voice waiting for its turn
rumbled on and on
strangely I was part of the matter
undoubtedly I was the matter of the heart
i had no need for an explanation
the heart already knows
Love is everlasting

On War

Blood and sweat of warfare
Stained the blueprint of my mind
Searched nearby lands and afar
A place to hide I could not find
Everywhere paved with landmines

Surrendering to Spirit

Letting go
Instills sparks of optimism
Forever focusing on good
Every moment in time

Facts Of Life

Though matter how brutally painful
Only hurts once

Though matter how smooth and well intended
Continually torture

Lifetime Guarantee

The only thing that’s always real
Is the love of God for his children
The only promise that holds true
Is the love of God for his children

The friend who always comfort us
Is the divine presence from within
The friend who will never leave us
Is the divine presence from within

The one who always meets our needs
Is the omnipotent, everlasting source
The one who will always give freely
Is the omnipotent, everlasting source

The only one who will never shame us
Is the one who knows no judgment
The only one who will never reject us
Is the one who knows no judgment

Disguised Helpers

Calamity tapped on the window
Opportunity rapped at the door
Success beckoned to embrace it
Defeat watched in disappointment

Wave goodbye to fear of failure
Waste no time to embrace success
A lot of good is rapping at the door

Although wrapped in brown paper
They are the most precious gifts
That life’s adversity waited to share
For they remind us to be grateful

Wave goodbye to fear of failure
Waste no time to embrace success
A lot of good is rapping at the door

Value splendidly wrapped days
Their heart-warming presents
Treasure most the ones
Those that come without bows

November 6, 2008


Warmth of smiles
Dries tears from eyes

An invite to come closer
Oh, what great delight

When soul meets soul

Strokes of his gnarled fingers
Ironed away her frowns
Released brows from despair
Love is right on schedule

Lonely years faded
Knots of insecurity unraveled
Love’s return to his waning heart
He welcomed with arms open wide

Strokes of her gnarled fingers
Ironed away his frowns
Released brows from despair
Love is right on schedule

Lonely years faded
Knots of insecurity unraveled
Love’s return to her waning heart
She welcomed with arms open wide

Road Rage


Honking and tailgating
Anger emitted
Attention diverted
Tires screech

Reflex deactivated
Vehicle rolls on
Bam, boom

Urgency halted
Shattered glass
Write-off ride

Blaring sirens
Tow trucks

Hurryuppers slow down
Emergency crew
Clear the way
Bodies scooped up

End of hurry
Life matters

Life’s message
No need for hurry
Slow down
Even for a while

2020 Hindsight

Many times, I did things my way
God seem too slow or delayed
I hardly understood what I must do
So I just did what I thought I should do, anyway
Only then, I understood
I had the choice to decide all along

Amazing Results

When negative energy drain life
God was not concerned about the pain
Because he planned to use it for good

When people rejoice at soul's brokenness
He was not concerned about the jeers
Because he planned to use it for good

When mind falter and stray from God way
His love for me has never wavered
Because he planned to use it for good

He allowed me to wail, cry and groan
When I was in the fire of restoration
Because he planned to use it for good

He did not mind the fussing and fighting
When he tried to keep me safe and calm
Because he planned to use it for good

He stopped no one from laughing
When humanness feels embarrassed
Because he planned to use it for good

Tearing and breaking down moments
All are a part of his plan for everyone
Because he intends to use it for good

To catch a bit of my attention
God allowed specks of dust
To blow in my life’s events
And irritate the hell out of me
So that I’d choose to serve Him
By listening to divine guidance
As he directed my every move
But I did not follow His way

Jesus showed up on the scene
He threw a pebble, then another
By then it seem he was ticked off
I just heard a loud, crashing noise
I looked behind to see this boulder
Tumbling down with such force
I was pulp before I could scram
I knew that his heart was broken

For along came his Holy Helper
Holding the cosmic glue in one hand
And the human clay in the other
He reshaped all the bits and pieces
Then polished me in a blazing fire
Like mosaic art the crumbs bonded
And then when she was finished
She tagged me ‘God’s Design’

It was a rather warm but quiet evening
I sat by the candlelight listening to silence
When I had a flashback of the yesteryears
I smiled as I recalled those dreaded moments
When shadows of the unknown scared me
And hopelessness inflicted my happiness

How I had longed for some sane company
During those never ending depressing days
And the sleepless nights with the zombies
Sometimes it felt like my life stood still
Other times it raced much faster than time
I could not even catch up with my self

Drained by emotions that clogged my life
I tried running from my shackled mind
Then when it seemed like I lost the race
I prayed for a strategy to escape the void
Waves of solitude distilled the madness
And they purified my toxic thoughts

Trauma frozen in time began melting away
Shoots of hope penetrated the gloominess
Joy and peace sprouted in my mental garden
Now I bless and thank those very moments
That I once scorned, detested and cursed
For without them I would not be who I am

Being shielded by her own emotions
Is what made her most fascinating
As she approached me for direction
To the path leading back to herself

I was curious but I didn’t want to analyze
How long she’d been lost and wandering
Or why she felt safe to ask me for the way
She came closer and motioned me to sit

I wondered if she had read my thoughts
And wanted to share her purpose with me
Or maybe it was to defend her character
That may have been flagged as indecent

She told me her heart ached with longing
It was near blossomed when she lost herself
While being someone everyone would like
Only to lose the person she was born to be

Since then she has been an empty shell
Who longed to resolve the inner conflict
She broke down as she lamented her loss
Something silver or gold couldn’t replace

With each step she took in her mind
She got closer to her final destination
Filled with joy she skipped and danced
As she found the one she was looking for

October 29, 2008

The Search is Over

She kept searching
For someone to love her
She kept searching for that someone
To love and complete her

Made so many excuses
For someone to love her
Even tried to change her self
All in vain so she kept searching

A little piece of hell
Tried to devour her soul
Didn’t like the picture of her
So the search continued

Sprinkles of love and affection
Broken life and fragmented self
Something seemed still missing
T’was a shadow of her she saw

Someone to love her
In free abandon and soft caress
So she searched and searched
The depth of her soul

Someone knew she was searching
Waited patiently with eyes wide open
Arms opened wide waiting for her
To give her back to her self

Her eyes beheld such a person
Someone to love and complete her
Smiling at her in the mirror
Beautiful illusions traded spaces

Trampled rose with living colour
That someone she searched for
Embraced her silhouette
And welcomed her self back

October 28, 2008

Glorious and Essential

Embrace the untouchables
Take the time to really know them
Before igniting blame and guilt
Reach out

Crystallized frowns adorn their brow
Layers of unhealed pain paved their journey
Unforgotten hurts knocked on their heart’s door
Reach out

See the brave soul beneath the fear
Listen to the whispers of the soul
Let them know that you really care
Reach out

Respect expressed tears of relief
Allow buds of optimism to blossom
Help make Earth a peaceful haven
Reach out

Reach out… Reach out … Reach out
Touch the untouchables
Reach out

soul is starved
hungry and ready
to digest a full life

for nourishment
deep wisdom
from soulfood chef
banquet is primed
served with trimmings
senses fully aroused
relishing every crumb

soul is satisfied
glowing contentedly
zesty and ready
to digest a full life

the pilgrims way

desolate desert
shape my life

like easterly wind
blow sand dunes
push me along
on sojourners path

so i stride boldly

October 25, 2008


invented parental control
To block kids
from seeing the world

turn on the television
take a peek at today’s news
check out movie previews

Who censors adult behaviour
When children are watching
from inside out

Roundly Square

Choosing up sides
Always spins mind
Though not a square
Round’s forever fair

No side to choose
Makes me enjoy
What is, as what is
Round or, square

Divine Security

Dancing to life’s music composed by nature’s holy legacy
In a twist of separation from strife, one finds inner peace
Vicissitude of daily business excite the zeal of creativity
Inspiring thoughts percolate with each evocative breath
Nature’s side order of reality and majestic tapestry
Elated by the feel of a zephyr while sipping aloe juice

Safe haven by meandering pool of serenity amid chaos
Enchanted love and desire that chase away trepidation
Calm reassurance from supporters along the way
Unprecedented ebullient music from birds and bees
Rays of sunshine set the stage for the rhythm of life
Integrity of the human spirit regains meaningfulness
Tender touch of time erases the blush of uncertainty
Yesterday’s memories elapse; today’s dream unfolds

October 22, 2008


The most beautiful scenery was once wilderness
The most artistic sculpture was once a piece of clay
The world was chaos before the sun, moon and stars
The world was once just a big mass of emptiness

God Knows

When ‘bad’ things happen to ‘good’ folks
It is wise not to rejoice at their fate

When ‘good’ things happen to ‘bad’ folks
It is noble not to rain on their parade

For by doing so we remind ourselves

That from weakness comes strength
And what goes around comes around

October 20, 2008

Vicious Circle

Laid off my minimum wage work
Qualified for about half of its pay
Got a part time job as sales clerk
To help make it through the day
As I juggled to manage the bills
And still have enough money
To afford my prescription pills
The tax collector was not funny
Describing the meagre earning
As just way too much benefit
Not even factor in cost of living
Or the stress of making ends meet
Let real concern for citizens show
Then genuine care they’ll know

October 19, 2008

Altering Perspective

Freedom to choose or ask question
Has been stripped of all credibility
By suppressing the gift of curiosity
Silencing the voice of imagination
Replaced with rehearsed fiction
And abbreviated counterfeit reality
Instead of allowing a person integrity
The soul’s siren drowned by distortion
Woodenly constructed words or speech
Carved in stone of disguised hypocrisy
Is no way to speak or even try to teach
Break down the gate of fake democracy
Dare to remain honest when impeach
Differing to see eye to eye can be gutsy

October 18, 2008

Multitude of Blessings

My life, each new day, the moment and all it brings.
Understanding the principle of relaxing and letting go
Living totally in the now, knowing the future is safe
The gift of a zesty personality and healthy sexuality
Invigorating, affectionate and uplifting relationships
The comforting hugs from friends and loved ones
Utterly maintaining balance of work, rest and play
Daily doses of events that keep me steadfast in faith
Every opportunity to make another fresh start

Omnipotent guidance, protection and forgiveness
Family, friends and the many teachers along the way

Being in a place where I hear my tears fall on the grass
Living each day with dignity, integrity, and confidence
Experience and circumstances for building character
Sense of humour, infectious laughter and caring touch
Safe place to call home and enjoy solitude moments
Inspiration, music, nature, imagination and creativity
Never having to give up being true to one’s self
Growing gracefully in the palm of God’s hand
Surrounded by loving and very caring persons

October 17, 2008

The Difference

Discipline brings out the best in us
Punishment is followed by rejection

Discipline is followed by perseverance
Punishment abuses the body and spirit

Discipline corrects and encourages progress
Punishment criticizes, discourages and damages

Discipline is a period of adjustment and restructure
Punishment is an era of destruction and grave digging

Discipline restores integrity, respect and sacredness to sanity
Punishment invades the sense of God, oneself and family time

Discipline deposits a generous dosage of love and self esteem
Punishment withdraws and robs off every shred of one’s faith

Links Of A Chain

They are the poignant reminders that-
Some of us are stronger in certain areas
All of us need each other at some point

None of us would make that chain alone
Some of us lose our shine now and then
Each of us came as crude ore of the earth

We all have been created with a purpose
No link is an accident nor is it a misfit
Some of us get out of shape or even break

In spite of all of these imperfections
Like the links that make up the chain
We are all accessories of the master plan

October 15, 2008

Fingernails’ message

Some of us grow with time and care
Some of us break with time or no care
Some of us bend out of shape and form

Some of us grow and break with time
Some of us take a longer time to grow
Some of us are fragile; others are rigid

Some of us are brittle and, some resilient
Some of us get stained, chipped or crack
Some of us need a coat of polish or gloss

Just so, the whole person needs nurturing
To bring out all magnificence from within
Isn’t this a noteworthy fingernail message!

At The Office

Folders, cabinets, binders
Endless junky documents
To review and, organize
Boxes, and more boxes
Pack, label, ship off site

Highlights of office day
Hard work and laughter
Comradery, smiley folks
Meetings and luncheons
Fine memoirs that linger on

October 12, 2008


It is a beautiful day for a picnic
Perfect for lunch on the beach
Frolic on the seashore and, eat
Waves massage tired feet

It is a beautiful day for a swim
Enjoy the breeze and let life be
Golden rays warm up the sand
We gather shells along the shore

October 11, 2008

Vivid Vagueness

God of life vanish on eve of sleepless darkness
Tomb of mystery swallows up dream of living
Memories of infinity seem a vault of emptiness

Private world scream in confined space of dead
Unexpressed affection hidden in cremated dust
Prolonged procrastination rest in restless peace

Humble grumbles of grief soothes scarred souls
Psyche marvels at detailed drafts of unlived joys
Hello and goodbyes beckon on cusp of eternity

October 10, 2008

I Am Whole

Wounded yet never been broken
Feelings felt some never spoken
Many times I’ve been misunderstood
My behaviour was interpreted as rude.

Mind was racing with taxing thoughts
Some believed that I was going nuts
Some certain that I am demented
I know I was just feeling tormented

Tired and worn-out body signal for help
Heeded its plea and began to heal myself
Restored body and mind I now embrace
I respect and appreciate the state of grace

I see myself in a magnificently strong body
I feel wonderful, vibrant, heartily zesty
Life reflects victory, beauty and harmony
I am whole- happy to be God’s sanctuary

October 9, 2008

Along the way

Morning breath
Lends life
Another chance
Thing to do
Things to undo
Along the way

Evening breath
Lends time
Another chance
Dreams to breakdown
Dreams to mend
Along the way

I Am Free

I am free to learn from mistakes
As I dance to the music of life
Letting go of all pain and strife
I am free!

I am free from bondage of worry
As I let go of all hustle and hurry
I relax and sing of life’s glory
I am free!

I am free to break chains that tie me
As I relish moments of blissfulness
Which now replace the emptiness
I am free!

I am free to enjoy the rising sun
As another day awaits everyone
I allow myself to have some fun
I am free!

I am free to embrace my authenticity
As I continue to relinquish illusions
I examine and broaden my visions
I am free!

I am free to change my point of view
As I consider solutions- old and new
And let others express themselves too
I am free!

October 7, 2008

Starting Over

Life gets sweeter and sweeter
As days go by, I feel less bitter
The dreadful past loses reign
I let nothing drive me insane

No longer do I stand in the way
I permit no one to spoil my day
Free to change my point of view
Moment by moment, life renew

Today begins the rest of my days
A gift to enjoy in wonderful ways
What tomorrow brings I may not see
Today presents to me all I can be

I set my feet firmly on the ground
I allow no trick to toss me around
Heart need is to enjoy serenity
Poise, effortlessness magnanimity

October 6, 2008

Mirror of Night

Profundity penetrates layers of life
Shattered bits of surrendered heart
Flourish in splendour and majesty

Lulling dreams on the eve of sleep
Subconscious transcend lucid facts
Mind weaves reality from memory

Purity of purity dignify re-creation
Seemingly ordinary feelings awake
Mortality vigilantly preserves spirit

October 5, 2008

Therapy Session

Imprisoned soul
Locked away
For decades

Imprisoned soul
Swiftly pounced

Like a hungry
Wild dog
Yelp furiously

Toxic emotions
Rushed out

Patient gentleness
Tamed mind
Dissolved fury

Essence of soul
Revived wholeness
Spirit resurrect

October 3, 2008


Confident and optimistic
Humility dressed with love
Acceptance of what is
Respect, integrity and dignity
Attitude of gratitude
Committed to authenticity
Tried, test and always true
Expresses spirit self
Reflects what is in one’s heart

Each Time I Fall

I outlive many a dreadful moment
Despite my never unending lament
I rise again each time I fall
Because God always answers my call

Though matter how low I go
Or how terribly hard the blow
Each time I fall I rise
That’s the way to catch life’s prize

When burdensome days come my way
When from life's path I seem to stray
I remind myself of all the other days
I rise each time I fall

The journey is long and sometimes dreary
Oftentimes this is very, very scary
I fall and I grumble, I crumble and I mumble
Always, I rise each time I fall

Whenever I stumble and fall
I hear a voice so gentle, so clear
"You can do it each time my dear
Yes! You can rise after each fall”

October 1, 2008

And give you praise
For the doors you close
As well as those you open
To pour out your prosperity
Steady surge of wealth
In rich measure
Faithfully provided

My Outlook On Life

Active, beautiful, content
Despite each feral gray hair
I just keep loving my naturally
Optimistic personality

Quiet reflections
Silence the uninvited vibrations
Welcomes xcitement
Youthful, Zest
