The essence of your core
Knows what you’re here for
Beneath the chatter running about
Quiet simplicity without any shout
Work of artists reduce refine
Express an epic in a line
A brush stroke simple fine
Says so much for a long time
Truth is simple no diverting noise
Surfaces from abiding poise
Natures form shapes what you see
Clear hearts’ eye frees you to be
Pleasures from the grist of life
Satisfaction little strife
Think its’ complex so much to do
Then get older wiser too
Eating laughing sunset’s delight
Communion companion delivers light
Smile teardrop a hug says much
Encouraging words a wisp of touch
Effortless blissful states
Wisdom fills abundant plates
Earthly pleasures reasonably free
Slow stop trying love just be
Taking time to enjoy simple pleasures?
How might life change if you engaged 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.
