Caught in the fast-spinning wild
Internal external guiding the ride
Agitation anxiety angst loneliness
Fear at times a thrownness
Even though I have resources
Can’t transcend powerful forces
Suddenly funk over me
One minute coasting next can’t see
Just when thinking I escaped
Here taste this on your plate
What causes dizzy spinning
Approaching my ninth inning
Familial patterns thick as glue
Visiting home not yet thru
Memories clouded seductive
Can’t let go what I’m up against
Push pull in the same breathe
Terrain has little happiness
I want sweetness time after time
Truth there was rarely sublime
Is visiting family different from what you want?
Can you let expectations go and be with what is?

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.
