A Poem A Day – Daily Practice for Seekers



January 13, 20241 min read

Strong emotion grips sometimes

Sneaking up sans rhythm or rhymes

Feeling of empty deep in the soul

Longing to fill up a big empty hole


Regardless of study awareness grace

It comes to you fills up your space

Sometimes pointing to a specific cause

Sometimes from what once was


As you sit in sadness that is

Try sending away it’s not your biz

Forget it won’t happen can’t chase it away

Can’t rush ignore distract with play


Longing holds lessons pay attention

Comes a voice giving direction

Listen the whisper inside

The voice friend ally guide


Heed direction it asks you to take

Honor the message wrapped in heartache

Trust your reality go deep explore

Follow go deep it leads to a door


What sadness are you experiencing?

What is the voice inside the sadness saying about action you need to take or a relationship needing healing?

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.
