Deep inside something makes you grin

Tickling hidden parts landing on a whim

Thoughts intersecting from disparate places

Disjointed connections touching cords sent by graces


Sometimes coming from a clear realization

Wry smiles reflecting some kind of elation

Taken as a friendly greeting you are welcome here

Putting others at ease wide opening ear to ear


Smiles mirror feelings locked deep within

Dispensed by a keeper doling out whims

Creating connection when others return

Immediate bonding is what you earn


Smiles reveal what is deep inside

A whole body reflecting a new sense of pride

As we grow older closer to our core

We feel more of god and we do want more


Sweet smiles come quickly and say it’s OK

Representing so much our words cannot say

That’s when to get generous with your sweet smiles

They take you across chasms for miles upon miles


Smiling takes you where your mind cannot go

Smiling connects so you’re not alone

Smiling showers you with sweet nectar from above

Smiles are little gifts of gods purest love


What usually happens when you smile at someone?

Who have you smiled at today? Did they smile back?

How did that instant connection make you feel?

Have you ever thought about allowing and enabling more smiling in your life?

What get’s in the way?

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.
