Unraveling turning asunder

Do you think do you wonder

Your status amid all the plunder

Do you feel rage and thunder


What’s your feeling your perspective

Thoughtful or throwing invective

Has leadership failed weren’t they watching

Institutions weakened amid their carping


Bedrock granite foundation assumed

Crumbled like sand are you amused

Those we trusted self-absorbed prancers

What next actions where are answers


Do you have answers solutions

Are you engaged with resolutions

Truth told there are no answers

On this path we must be dancers


Honor wisdom knowledge inside

Stressful times rely on pride

Stay centered grounded honor voices

Right action follows personal choices


What is your current sense of the world swirling around you?

What informs the choices you make?

How do you protect your family, community, fortune?

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.
