The place you belong where you feel home

Your body rests comfortably you’re not alone

Longing subsides there is no place to go

You feel at ease in the joy that you know


Warm is the essence when you arise

It’s not about conquest or just to survive

It’s about caring for those you love

The joy of communion blessings from above


You rest very easy breathing is deep

Food tastes really good here long is your sleep

No need to wander run hither or yon

It’s very down home you’re back on a farm


When you are lonely tired or stretched

Step into the comfort of where you can rest

Don’t worry what you need it’s there without asking

It saves you the longing so you can be basking


One thing required in this restful space

Make sure you acknowledge those who provide grace

Remember when this was not here for you

So thank your angels who do what they do


Do you have a place to go to where you receive comfort?

How did that space develop?

Do you adequately acknowledge the people who provide that space?

Do you provide that space for others?

How can you make your space one of comfort?

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.
