Awake alive whirring and stirring
Springtime is here and we’re all buzzing
The doldrums of winter long chilly nights
Would spring ever come so you can take flight

The seasonal pattern of up and down
First makes you smile then clouds with a frown
We often forget when spirits are low
Life comes around if you stay in the flow

It’s not only seasons we mark on the wall
Internal passages rise and then fall
The task to remember when in hibernation
You will be born to a new celebration

Like daisies poppies carnations and roses
You’ll flower again striking beautiful poses
The rain that nurtures and cleanses your soul
Is to be cherished as you grow old

Without fallow times and quiet within
You would not discover your next big win
When you are buried in the slumber of cold
Be quiet and still knowing spring will unfold

When you are feeling fallow is it difficult to remember that most things are cyclical?
What might you do to remind yourself?
How might you see and use the winters we all experience as providing real value?

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.
