No time to straddle fences

Failure to act consequences

Turn left turn right

Glory or another fight


Playing scenarios dancing in brain

Evoking sunny and thunderous rain

Life’s dancing ball bounces up down

Leap to the stars leave you with a frown


Answers sometimes clear as a bell

Sometimes choices wreaking havoc and hell

How do you know how do you decide

How to ensure god’s on your side


What is your truth your best answer

Keep plodding or become the dancer

Opportunity here not where you go

Cultivate your mindset knowledge will grow


In a Zen sense what you do does not matter

The central concern lack of ongoing chatter

You are OK no matter direction

Headed home hold fast your intention


What payoff do you get for agonizing about making perfect decisions?

Ever think of being OK with either choice knowing you can choose again?

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.
