What is the connection a superlative force

Holding us together no thought of divorce

Carries us through fire and rain

Offers us sunlight when we’re in pain


Sharing our essence giving us smiles

Listening profoundly for miles upon miles

Joining our laughter bearing our fears

Revealing our scars letting go of tears


Speaking our dreams and what makes us crazy

Losing connection when we get lazy

Counting the years the connection does span

We arrived here without much of a plan


What draws us to others what’s the source of attraction

What fosters connection and gives friendship traction

What keeps us engaged and asking for more

What is the glue that makes us secure


Gemutlich is present the feelings are warm

You trust the engagement from which new life is born

This body that rises out of the connection

Creates in your soul a whole new dimension


Who are the people in your life with whom you share this kind of connection?

Have you acknowledged and thanked them lately?

If something were to happen to either one of you would you feel bad that you had not expressed a sense of gratitude?

By when will you share?

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.
