A Life with Nature

I see the hawks, and I hear their cries.

I notice the ground, and dead butterflies.

I think, many don’t, and that they’re missing out;

Consumed with consumerism and

Filled with doubt,

And entirely focused within their story,

Of the way Life is.

A shame, I’d say, to not notice nature.

The Signs

They’re always there, though we don’t always see them.

They don’t change. We do.

And, every once in a while, we run into them, and we wonder, how did I not see it before now?

Together

As I walk,

Others move on.

We’re sharing this space.

We’re like chords in a song.

And we all have a part.

But we’re lost in forever.

Equally confused

By the meaning of together.

Perfect Circle

So what do you see?
What are you workin on?
Do things look good,
To you?

Lemme see that weight?
Your pain.
I wanna hold it.
Give it here,
My dear.
It’s ok.
My love.
I wanna show you somethin.

Turns out, it’s not the dark,
But the brightest light
That makes it hard to see.

But, look.
Your reflection

Next to you the sky’s are blue.
Can you see it now?

Perfect circle.
Around the sun.
There’s been no rain
Above the clouds.
It’s always there.

We just can’t always see it.

Right Prayer

I believe in myself and my loved ones.
Oh, Great Energy, protect us and guide us.
We desire balance, peace, joy, and prosperity, and to be aligned with you.
Help us to see and to grow closer to you.

Help us to always mind your love and light and to hold ourselves and others in this truth.

We are too often short sighted and small minded.
Help us to see through and past our trappings and situations that draw us in and down.

May your greatness shine through us.
May we lead by example.
May our actions be such that we’re valuing the interests of others.
Help us with awareness and compassion.
Help us to trust and to find peace and strength in your way.

Thank you, Great Energy.

On My Way Back to You.

Kinder thoughts
As you come and go.
From my mind.
All the time.
Wishing for that better space;
Open.
Fine. No problem, as the past fades away
In its place.

Connected, right, the light comes in,
Like the wind,
For a time.

Just want it to stay.
For always.
For us.

Just want you to stay
With me.

Why did you have to go
So soon?

Come back to me.

I’m on my way
To you.

How to be Going Forward

In a way
That weighs,
I’m in the way.
Encroaching on space
Of others.

I consider my place.
I’m mindful of others.
But I’m often not what they want.

Expectations of me.
Some i can’t see.
Some others, i disagree (with).

So, what should I do,
But fight-through these things,
And Stand-for what i am about?

Just being here, or just walking by you, can insight the deepest of fear. I can cause you to flee; your reaction to me. You may listen, but my truth you can’t hear.

Through The Fire

If we only knew
How it was
And can be
We would see
What I’ve seen
And I know.
And, i know
It-can be-better
Right here and right now
Is forever
And Heaven is here
But it’s fear
That keeps us from there
As we stare
And believe
This is something it’s not
Is hell
Here on earth
Is the way it will stay
Til we change.

So close
Yet so far
We dont know
Where we are
But the fire
Will clean us
As long as we need it
Til we-have come through it.
It’s backwards
Yet progress.
We’re moving towards light
Then we’ll see…

What we couldn’t.
