Let Your Spirit Fly

The Miracle

I'd like to share this poem with you. It is my favorite of all those I have written. I hope you will enjoy it....

 

 

 

 

Every day we live our “life”, that is what we perceive.

We search so hard for miracles; it’s what we all believe.

We look at life from the other side; we wait and wish for more.

We sit and watch for each big wave to meet us on the shore.

 

We dream of things that are to come, not thinking of “today”,

True happiness we crave, so close, but yet so far away.

Our eyes wide open, true enough, but still we cannot see

The happiness within ourselves, the kind that sets you free.

 

And so…

Be kind to all and do your share, for it will bring you peace,

Connect to all of nature’s gifts; your loneliness will cease.

Be thankful every single day, just be humble and stay true.

No need to search, your dream is there,

the miracle is YOU.

The Gift

This poem won awards and was featured on a collection called "Sparkles In The Sand"

 

 

 

For the time it took to make a flower; the forest and the trees

For the time it took to make a pond; the oceans and the seas,

For the time it took to make a stone; the mountains and the sand

God took equal time to find what was missing in his great land.

 

 

So he made love, and he made hope, and everything that’s good.

He gave the earth a laugh and song and all the smiles he could.

When he was done he blessed it all, and clothed it with the morning dew.

Then he gave the Earth his greatest gift; he gave the Earth…You!

Your Journey

Death as we known it is not real. Your spirit never dies. It will live on into your next journey...

 

 

 

 

Live every day like it’s your last, because it may well be,

Celebrate your life, don’t live in fear, be committed, but be free.

Speak all that is required said; and say it loud & clear,

Announce it deep from in your soul, let every person hear.

 

And when you breathe your last deep breath, do it with a smile,

Mourning is for those who do not know; they will in just a while.

Embrace it all, you’ve walked the path, you’ve awakened to the truth,

You once were old, but now instead, you leave this world a youth.

 

Your spirit brave will guide you; to where it is you go,

Fear not, it’s been decided, just take it nice and slow.

You’ve planned this day for a million years, perhaps a little more,

Rejoice, Rejoice, your time has come, pass through that open door!

Laughter Is True Medicine

The Sunflower Seed

 

Here I sit gazing At a sunflower seed

A tiny little creature but a dire need

Air, food & water keep you alive, so they say

But I would have died long ago without one seed each day.

The Onion

 

Love is like an onion

You taste it with delight

But when it's gone you wonder

Whatever made you bite?

Dandelion Wine

Roses are red, Violets are blue,

Both are quite pretty, aah yes this is true.

Dandelions are yellow and perhaps not as fine.

But then Violets and Roses will not make me my wine.

Yesterday Upon the Stair

Yesterday upon the stair

I saw a man who wasn't there

He wasn't there again today

I wish the heck he'd go away.

The Old Judge

I stood very quiet in front of the judge,

As he read off the charge, I didn’t dare budge.

He sounded quite stressed, as his day was quite busy.

When he said case #3, I began to feel dizzy

 

“You’re charged with exposure, indecent to be exact.

Peeing on the highway, as a matter of fact.

We have a sound witness, so how do you plead?”

I replied ‘Guilty, your honor, guilty indeed”.

 

“Eighty dollars” he yelled, “that should be just fine”,

So I reached in my pocket, not to waste any time.

Then I pulled out a hundred, and I let out a call,

“I passed gas as well, so go ahead, take it all”.

 

Well I thought it was funny and the court room exploded,

But the favor I’d gained very soon it eroded

“Let’s make it two hundred”, I heard the judge yell.

“And seven days behind bars”, as the old gavel fell!

Pink Elephinks

Pink Elephinks

I’ve always been the kind of guy who liked a little smoke

And now & then, if I should dare, I’d do a line of Coke

But ‘shroooms have always done me good, they’ve made me stop and think,

Of just how else I’d ever find pink elephinks in my drink!

I Love Me..

 

I love me, I think I'm grand,

I sit in the movies and I hold my hand,

I put my hand around my waist,

And if I get fresh, I slap my face.

For The Romantic in You...

A Sweetness

 

 

A sweetness that is rarely known, floods our very being,

Love enveloping all we are, so capturing, yet freeing.

Passion born from a love’s, sweet and warm embrace,

Devotion, felt so clearly, from just a look upon her face.

Bliss overcomes, spirits soar, too wondrous to be real,

We are the most that we can be; loving the way we feel.

Experiences we’ve never known shout “Yes, it must be true”,

Not of the mind, but from the heart, a soft whisper, “I love you”.

When we’re together, the hot sun warms us to the core,

Souls connect; a bond is felt, much stronger than before.

It’s taken such a long, long time, yes, we’ve strolled the path,

And now the search is ended, love, we sit, we smile… we laugh.
