Fire in motion leaves on trees
Shimmering landscape weakens your knees
Days growing shorter chill filling air
Spirits grow quiet as winter draws near
Fall such an apt word energy wanes
Hibernation in us frost on window panes
Getting older and wiser and getting slow
Constant becoming starts letting go
Deep wisdom in you begins to emerge
The chatter inside burns an involuntary purge
Hunkering down getting close to your core
It becomes clearer what you came here for
What is the perspective you came to bring
As energy shifts with no sign of spring
Look dormant seedlings spread all around
Hear rich soft voices buried in ground
Let faith fill your heart know life will be reborn
When feeling the black ice of a dark winter storm
Spring always comes when you’ve suffered enough
Bliss is beyond the corner of frightful stuff
Do you sense a purpose hiding in the life you have been living?
Do you know what it is can make it more available to yourself and others?

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.
