Cloudy within without
Flat haze no edge or shout
Summer wanes gone sun’s kiss
Path gray muddy fading bliss
How to handle empty inside
No motivation for life’s ride
Fear of what lies ahead
Want to lie low back to bed
Know you want much more
Life allowing you to soar
Be joyful within your time
Make sacred rhythm and rhyme
Decide darkness or delight
Choose to move without fright
Foggy horizon a dangerous view
Find clear sailing that is true
Life is suffering Buddha said
We do to avoid moving instead
Know it’s so
Life follows where you go
Illusion and fog contain gifts
Demand a clear mental shift
Dwell on cloudy get into it deep
Choose diversion go back to sleep
Remember best way out is through
Let cloudy make friends with blue
Stay authentic in your core
Life the lesson you’re here for
What clouds your life and how do you respond when gray arrives?
What value do clouds bring?

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.
