This Place

It’s a simple thing,

This wandering

In which we all partake.

We complicate

We hesitate,

And spend it half awake.

But if we pause,

Accept our flaws,

And opt instead for grace,

We’ll mindfully

And kindly see

The gift that is this place.

What’s in Front of Me?

What’s in front of me?

That’s all that I can do.

The tasks that I can see

Are all I can work through.

I cannot change the past;

The future’s out of sight.

The present will not last,

So I’ll just be,

Work faithfully,

And leave the rest up to the Light.

Thanks for Reading! Be Blessed!

If my poetry moves you or brings you joy, please consider giving a gift to keep me going!


The past and the future,

All ever present.

No lines and no boundaries

To move from or toward.

All things are now,

Affecting each moment.

It all lives within us

As our lives move forward.

Heaven & Hell

A person needn’t die to see

Heaven’s Light or Hell’s debris.

In every word, with every deed,

We choose the kind of Life we’ll lead.

Hell’s fires light with words of spite

That keep us trapped in endless fight.

Yet if we can forgive and love,

What Life is that but Heav’n’s above?

You see, we choose our fates right now.

Sit back, observe, and you’ll see how.

It’s best that we remember this:

Eternity is in our midst.

The Path goes on it’s merry way;

No stopping, speeding, or delay.

How much travel have we missed

Caught in Sleep’s seductive fist?

‘Tis not the sleep we need for rest

In order that we do our best,

But that which keeps us from the Light;

That Sleep which robs one’s mind of sight.

We tend to walk distractedly,

Not looking up that we might see

How quickly life is passing by,

Our time a breath, a gasp, a sigh.

It’s time now that we fin’lly wake

And give our drooping head a shake.

Ignore the Circus, loud and bright

Let’s focus now with all our might!

There’s much to see, yes, much to learn

With every dip and every turn;

Twixt this Earth and the Sky above,

So many Ones for us to love.

Keep walking, turning, soak it in!

Now is the time. Awake! Begin!
