Effort and strain pushing your quest

Expending energy impressing with best

Doorstep delivered for your viewing eye

No need to travel it gets you high


Powdered sugar sprinkled on all

Lovely landscape has you stand tall

Nature brings this pure white view

No human effort nothing to do


It can be simpler like falling snow

Carefully listen but we already know

Not much we chase will fill us up

What we need to fill our cup


No need to run banter wave shout

All we need is within rarely without

Your wisest oracle wisdom profound

To hear your pearls quiet your sound


Quiet the voices competing in time

Quiet the chatter to hear what’s sublime

Quiet longings hungers pains

Quiet footsteps hear what remains


Inside peaceful like fresh soft snow

Fluffy white cool making you glow

Tap into the child delighting in rhyme

Let youth’s exuberance feed your divine


Bring forth lacey beauty residing in you

Delicate presence guides and cherishes you

Honor sweet soul prowling your being

Luminous snow opens your real seeing


When’s the last time you felt divine presence?

What generated it and what prevents experiencing it regularly?

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.
