Sensing the beginning of a new unraveling
Impetus inside wants to be traveling
Feelings I’m feeling I’ve felt before
A longing welling-up to walk out the door

The journey ahead seems less than joyful
What’s bubbling up borders on mournful
The dark place calling hardly inviting
Resistance is low none left for fighting

I like to keep busy meeting and greeting
Providing great comfort helping with seeding
Endless promoting not my deep longing
I like respect admiration innovation belonging

The yearning inside wants the joyous somehow
The stillness I sense is part of me now
Endocrine glands on overload without rhyme
Churning and burning are no fun this time

I look for great peace soon in the future
More out of life and family to nurture
I need all of you across each wide county
Sharing the roots that are my precious bounty

Who do you miss the connection to?
What feelings does that connection generate for you?
What grounding does it provide?
What makes the connection important?
Do they know?
What is the risk in telling them?

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.
