I see you, really see you. As they stream over and through you
All the love you wear on your sleeve Rebuilding your childlike wonder
Shines like a precious jewel Your faith that never wavers
A beacon in a tarnished world In the goodness of people around you
Where people protect themselves May you feel that goodness in yourself
From harm, opinions, and thoughts. As strong as a bold coffee
And shutter down their hearts Flavoring your senses
With no chance of opening up. And lifting you up
But you shine like a golden lamp To the highest sunbeam.
With sun rays blessing you
The view outside a window
Is not always clear
Even if it’s totally clean
The window can distort
Like the window our soul looks out of
And yet the light shines through
Warming every darkened crevice
Every stale thought
Every dim view
That we might have
Covering us and filling us
With Warmth and Love
May we always feel
Light’s Promise and Hope
And never lose our way.
Some days we all feel so disconnected
to ourselves and with each other.
Barely holding on to life with a thread.
Nothing feels good or right,
Just work, commitments and drudgery.
And yet that thread we’re holding onto,
even if just barely,
Floats across the universe.
And it’s as strong as it is invisible
It’s the glue that holds us all together
That sticky cobweb that we brush away
fuels us, connects us and gives us purpose.
May we keep holding on,
Even when we can’t see the source.
The Heavenly Filament
divinely floats us
and Breathes us anew
Dare I dip my toe into the water?
To feel the bubbling springs of life
The joys the love the overcoming sadness.
In the corner of my eye
I see a glow
A shimmering light.
She is no more
Upon this earthly plane.
But I can feel her heart
Beating without strain
Smiling and happy
An energy of love
Filled with kindness
Strength and Wisdom.
In life she was so frail.
In death, I feel her presence
In a tender gentle breeze
Through a fluttering bird’s wing
Or a loved one’s warm embrace.
She’s never far away.
I feel her every day.
Two years ago, I picked up a book called Homer’s Odyssey. It is a true story about a vet who was given a “sick” kitten, after his owners said they could not handle him. She found out that the only thing wrong with him was that he had a terrible eye infection and his eyes would have to be removed. Continue reading →
