After buzzing up the mountain and buzzing round the globe

After buzzing upon buzzing am I getting old?

Flying on adrenals buzzing me to my next perch

One day waking up startled by my eternal search


I climb down from my rocket put both feet on the ground

Is this about the game of being lost and found

Who has control of gambits in the game

Who has selection power who goes who remains


The next steps are uncertain there is no clarity here

Only speculation…what happens in this year

This moment is about resting quieting the mind

Shutting down all systems to stop the search to find


Interesting how the world works when you get down off the spin

Rest awhile there on the sideline no one knows you’ve gone or when

Whenever you are ready mount your noble steed

Everyone will greet you not knowing you’ve been freed


So when you get weary exhausted to the soul

Step off the whirling cyclone take time to be alone

Gather fractured feelings call your spirit from afar

Consolidate your essence put it back in your jeweled jar


Have you been buzzing around?

Do you need some renewal time?

What does that look and feel like for you?

What does renewal provide for you?

How does it enable you to make a greater contribution to others and to yourself?

What usually gets in the way of your renewal? Why do you let it?

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.
