What is a thing of beauty what embodies art
What gives shape to memories lingering in your heart
What stirs your deep feelings makes passions wake and rise
What creates lasting impressions in body and mind
Many forms embody what is defined above
Many are the objects that demand your love
Drawing your attention demanding your full notice
Beauty has its own way of drawing in your focus
Something in its essence purity of design
Integrity of composition nobility of mind
Striking in appearance seductive in its will
So perfect in its stature that it gives you chills
Poetry or painting drawing or a dance
Classical composition or the South of France
Rap lyrics or Beethoven the food of Wolfgang Puck
Snake eyes on the table says you’re out of luck
Exciting is its presence you want to take it home
There you try to cage it so it will not roam
Whatever forms you love what moves and lifts your spirits
Surround yourself in beauty let it fill your minutes
What are the beautiful things you appreciate?
Do you have them around you?
What do they provide for you?
How do you use them?
How might you gain more value from them?

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.
