This Space and Time

There is space and time…

For a blessed and peaceful reunion, 

Of hearts and minds.

 

There is space and time…

For my heart to beat within my chest,

In love, in joy, in grief, in pride. 

 

There is space and time…

For air to fill my lungs and leave my nostrils,

Tasting life’s breath.

 

There is space and time…

To accept the flavors of life,

Savoring their richness, beauty and wonders.

 

There is space and time…

To anticipate sharing love,

Accepting a lover to have and to hold.

 

There is still space and time…

To live…until I die,

Releasing space/time dust,

And merging back into the re-creation of God’s infinite design.

Infinite Eyes

A New Year…

Just another day in infinity...

Look, deeply look,

In your loved one’s eyes,

Behind them lies infinity…

Look, really look into the night skies,

Beyond such grandness stands infinity…

Look, really look with respect and dignity,

Upon all living things,

For in each one, infinity resides.

Infinity is all around,

Inbedded within and

Above and beyond.

So respect and love,

What you see here and now

 

Just stop…

And see your world,

With infinite eyes.

A blessed, safe, happy, healthy New Year to you and yours, in 2018!”

Heaven Will Wait

If life were only heaven,

I imagine things would be

Lovely and complete!

But how then to transform?

What to rise above?

What thing to unlearn?

When and where to create a life,

If no time or space?

With no place to play,

Or twists of fate,

Just peace, love and light…

Could there be a way to graduate?

Thankfully heaven will wait for me.

And when I’m good and done,

The sweetest chance to re-unite, rest…

And re-ignite, life’s inevitably 

Dimming flame.

God’s Team

Life’s problems and complexities,

Seem magnified by the fish bowl of technology.

May we the informed, modern, “with it,” and witty,

Not bench God for the game’s remainder.

Staying neutral gets harder and harder,

“If you can’t beat em, join em!”

…So many decide,

Not wishing to be left in the dust.

Yet things just get more nasty and cruel,

As heated arguments ensue.

So clever and smart,

Yet has technology made

Our heads bigger than our hearts?

 God, all-powerful is lying low

And playing it cool…

Why not meet Him on the sidelines?

Sit and pray and look within,

Be the exception, not the rule.

Welcome to Team Patience,

Let God see all, know all, bear all,

Then compassionately wait,

Trusting God’s mountain of love and light,

Slowly but surely,

To move inside of you,

Changing earth’s face.

Do you really believe that darkness can win?

Pick a side, join right in…

Both teams still have openings!

Mining for Gold

Skimming stones,

Across water’s surface…

False pursuits,

Of superficial illusion.

Shiny plastic widgets and what-nots,

Look good to the eyes,

Feel good to the ego…

While devoid of human-heart-truth,

And filled with soul-depth-deprivation.

Sorrow saturating a rotted-out core.

...Changing focus,

Diving deep,

Mining substantial, sustainable Love,

Basking in penetrating yet forgiving Light.

Anchoring new foundations,

Of God’s underlying golden peace.
