Birth cradle feed till contented
Without them needs unattended
More than physical they provide
Instill well-being confidence pride
Foundation essential to being
Grounding and encourage seeing
Education finances too
Clothe bodies give each foot a shoe
Fortunate their work doesn’t quit
No matter age count on their grit
Never abandon responsibility
Well of giving sets you free
Cycle reverses at some time
Become caretaker without any whine
Solid footsteps covered ground
Now they’re slowing down
Give back what you took for granted
Their giving got you firmly planted
Magic happens something like that
As you give get so much back
Many lessons from their being
Experience of living and seeing
Cycle of life revolving door
Giving taking what you came for
Who parented you and where are you in the cycle?
Can you acknowledge gifts received and honor reciprocity?

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.
