As a child an hour seemed forever
A week an eternity a year lifelong measure
Growing older the opposite’s true
What once took patience in no time is through
Getting nearer our date with fate
Time quickens to pearly gates
Like gravity falling toward ground
Closer to impact faster hurtling down
Initial knee jerk of most
Push faster never missing a toast
Move helter-skelter run place to place
Never slow down embracing grace
Moving all over trying to outrun
Focus on quantity prohibits deep fun
Perhaps turn around stepping aside
Dismount your treadmill for a different ride
Try savoring tasting each bite
Enjoy distinct flavors begin traveling light
When the impact takes you to the other side
Memories have clarity from a slower ride
Are you currently savoring your life or moving fast
through them? What are the bites you want to savor?
How can you get beyond what stops you?

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.
