Cleansing earth renewing air
Sun’s intensity much to bear
Fosters reflection looking within
Nurtures essence when feeling thin
Cooling bubbling quiets inside
Slowing the body from a fast ride
Without crops earth cracks peels
Liquid life elixir sweet wet heals
Parched dehydrated dry to bone
Quenching nectar quiets existential moan
Collecting cisterns reservoirs fill up
Preserving hoarding to fill your cup
Manna from heaven sent by gods
Fattening sweet peas in little pods
Can’t live without more than a few days
It disappears we dance shamans pray
Next time upset when wet rain falls
Soaks a hairdo puts things on pause
Recall sweet scents and vibrant colors
Sun coming out drying your druthers
What can rain teach us?
What long-term benefit will remain?

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.
