Down in essence your central core
Knowing what you are here for
Beneath chatter and running about
A quiet simplicity always comes out
The work of artists reduce refine
Express an epic in only a line
One brush stroke so simple and fine
Clear depiction for a long time
Truth so simple no diverting noise
Surfaces when holding your poise
Natural forms shapes what you see
Clear hearts’ eye frees you to be
Pleasures from the grist of life
Satisfaction with little strife
You thought complex much to do
Then you get older wiser too
Eating laughing sunset’s delight
Communion companion deliver light
Smile teardrop a hug says much
Encouraging words a wisp of touch
Effortless to know blissful states
Wisdom fills your abundant plate
Many earth pleasures reasonably free
Slow stop trying love and be
Taking enough time to enjoy simple pleasures?
How might your life change if you engaged in one simple pleasure every day?

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.
