Spiritual Paths


Spirits flew to God knows where
Chances given, life to share
Given again the second chance
Fulfill the promise, dance the dance
Find within the inner line
Hold on tight do not define
The reason for the very soul
Its pathway and the way to go
Where few have followed, few have gone
Feel the light so brightly shone
Walk the path though oft untread
Carry on through fear and dread
Drift through curtains one by one
Falling into hearts unsung
Feeling life, the ebb and flow
Moving onward, upwards go
Step into the other world
Where life begins and ends unheard

When The Time Is Right

When the time is right - dec 10 2015 - hubble heic9910a

There were things about myself I never knew,
Things that in my world I would eschew,
Tiny details hiding in the cracks,
That would one day come and stab me in the back.

I was not happy with the way life used to be,
So hit the road to find a better me,
How silly looking back I should have known,
You only take the seeds that you have grown.

Running ’round the world a second time,
Never really finding what was mine,
The greatest shock, the best discovery,
Those things I longed for most, were deep inside of me!

Then the details that I thought would make life slide,
The ones I’d spent such time searching outside,
Came creeping out of cracks where they had hidden,
And now stand stark and proud, forces unbidden.

I suppose the time is right when things appear,
Although we may well wish them gone from fear,
For nothing in this world can happen out of sync,
All our lives, our loves, our being, one big link.

Which means, of course, we’re never really ‘out there’ on our own,
We’re always linked to everyone around us, though we moan,
Forgetting every word and thought will ripple through the links,
And change the lives of every living thing, like light through chinks.

Awareness is the answer that we seek,
In every moment, thought and action tweak,
So everything that passes through our light,
Contributes to the power and the might

Of every point and path creation flows,
As onward, outwards, upwards all life grows,
And feeling from within thy specialty,
Of standing still a moment just to be.

Brief Thoughts To Ponder – #4


As time goes on
And we all mature
Which verses touch us
To the core?

Rip self aside
Pierce heart and soul
Remind us
Of our way to go

Ego’s Pride – (NaPoWriMo Day 28)

Ply your trade
Along highways wide
Find a way
Through ego’s pride

Living life from outside in
Accepting all that’s said
Perceptions, expectations
Closing inner dead

Souls cry out in torment
Purpose unfulfilled
Living life in torrents
Meaning often killed
