Cleansing earth renewing air
Sunshine’s intensity much to bear
Fostering reflection looking within
Nurturing essence that’s feeling thin
Cooling bubbling intellect fostering quiet inside
Slowing the body when you’re on a ride
Without it no crops earth cracks and peels
Liquid life elixir sweet wet it heals
When parched dehydrated dry to the bone
Quenching nectar quiets existential moan
Collecting cisterns reservoirs filling up
Preserving hoarding we can fill our cup
Manna from heaven sent by gods
Fattening sweet peas in little pods
Can’t live without it more than a few days
It disappears we dance shamans pray
Next time upset when wet rain falls
Soak in a new hairdo put things on pause
Flowers sweet smells vibrant colors
Sun coming out drying your druthers
How might current rain teach you something?
What longer term benefit will you experience?

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.
