Happy Birthday Poem

A birthday is a marker of time, An anniversary that is ripe, A celebration of the day you left the womb, To breathe the Breath of Life. To see, smell, touch, feel, hear, and taste, And learn about your world, And as years pass you learn some things, As the map of your life is…

Morning Musings 1 Stream of consciousness, free writing, whatever you want to call it…Just muscle through to the poem at the end.

POEM – Uncertainty

Uncertainty in life seems to me to be very much akin to non-attachment, the idea that nothing is permanent, anything can happen, and I need to remain flexible if I do not want to be getting bent out of shape to the breaking point every time a strong wind blows. UNCERTAINTY (or HOLD TIGHT LET…

MY HEART HAS GROWN Her soul forever with me I feel her in my heart Her body no longer present Her love within never apart   She sees and hears and knows What I think and what I feel Sometimes I recognize the signs At times I’m not sure they’re real   Her spirit now…

POEM – I Choose To Believe

  I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE Just as a tree is sure Its leaves will reappear, Time advances as our seasons Pass by with the years But I believe it doesn’t end With our last earthly breath And we peacefully transcend Into eternal present after death So although the body dies in many ways The soul…
