Cloudy within without
Flat hazy no edge or shout
Summer ending waning sun’s kiss
Path gray muddy no hint of bliss
What do you do empty inside
No motivation to continue the ride
Feeling fearful what lies ahead
Want to lie low go back to bed
Knowing you want so much more
A life that allows you to soar
Being joyful much of the time
Making sacred rhythm and rhyme
Time to decide darkness delight
Which way to move without fright
Foggy horizon dangerous view
No time for sailing be still and true
Life is suffering Buddha said
Do to avoid keep moving instead
Understand that this is so
Life follows you wherever you go
Illusion and fog reveal hidden gifts
Often demanding a clear mental shift
Dwell on the cloudy get into it deep
Choose a diversion go back to sleep
Remember best way out is through
Be cloudy make friends with the blue
Stay truthful down to your core
Life is a lesson you are here for
What clouds your life and how do you respond when gray arrives?
How do you greet them and 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.
