The comfort in your body the stillness of your soul

Says you have reached safety and that you are home

All that thrusting forward and buzzing around

All of your mad searching for some stable ground


Aside from what we came here to do

What we long for is a quiet that’s true

Where we are accepted and can truly “be”

It’s not about what you do it’s about who you “be”


That is the deliverance that helps sets you free

Your grounding focus your nest in your tree

Some of us are lucky and good fortune shines

Having those around that comfort chattering minds


In our own acceptance we receive a gift

Deliverance available to where there is no rift

On this ground we sing our song

Our heart feels known we do belong


We sing with glory here we hail supreme

Here we know true meaning of a “human” “being”

If we’re very lucky we can taste this honey

If we’re very smart we know honey’s more than money


What does home taste like to you?

What does it smell like?

How do you know you are home?

When was the last time you visited your home?

What took you there?

When you go how long do you stay?

What makes you leave? Why?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
