In This Being

4

 

Half of the time

rebels are lovely

you just have to catch them

at it, unawares, when

they’re not looking

for inevitably if they know

you’re watching

they behave differently

stand taller, form their thoughts

shake their bangs out of their eyes

swish their tail in a springy way

ultimately just a show pony

with long eyelashes

and a meaty hind end

but if you manage to sneak up

and see them meandering through

the tall grass, wind in their hair

a sunlit sparkle in their eye

you’ll see a moment of truth

an intensely felt flash of

perfect contentment

and there lies the soul

the root of this being

for you to see clearly

****

remember

THIS MOMENT… IN THIS BEING

when you need to forgive

forget or let betrayal go

for stubbornness comes

in many forms

from at least two angles

split by that fence

the long trampled grasses

at your feet

and the obstinate bees

mulish in their relentless pursuit

of each and every flower

A Frozen Soul

5

when confusion sets in over a frozen soul

locked in a spiral floating in the wind

a shadow standing dark and long

looks on at the blinding light

not quite understanding warmth or a touch

its icy indifference a crystallized drop

among a trillion cold tears falling silently

gathered together yet acres apart

a crust of vanity chilling to the core

where wisdom is shattered by a breath

and greed becomes a frost of evil dusting

Beyond the Visible

only our Soul can judge

up that hill you trudge

how far you need to go

wandering to and fro

straying over what you think you know

~

only Hope can dream

light a path in a beam

push you to accomplish

feel a bit foolish

reaching beyond cowardice you banish

~

only Faith can humble inside

arrogance runs to hide

a promise an ocean wide

stretching out past empty dark space

relinquishing doubts you can finally face

~

only your Soul shines and sings

only Hope ends forebodings

only Faith can give you great wings

Being Blossoms

pink pedals on a tiny tricycle
balls and bats strewn about
13 new puppies to find homes for

blossoms in the spring

surprised smile at your first kiss
hands accidentally touch then hold
lambs bounding across a hillside

blossom with innocence

bloom with an unadorned smile
be nearby for the loneliest eyes 
dancing with the flowers on the wall

blossom like sparkling champagne

bowing your head in awareness
realizing the humblest truths
forgiving because it's so simple

blossom with the glow of your beliefs

wear your heart on your sleeve
show the world there's no reason to hide
let your love pour out like Old Faithful

blossoming is teaching with the petals of your soul
