A Blessing

A moment held in time and space,
The everyday halts for the sacred.

We stand in tranquillity and expectation,
We are humbled by days gone by,
We become part of its history....
                                        it's beauty.....
                                              it's generosity.......

Love profound deep from the heart of my soul,
Love openly showing with every tear and smile,

Their journey together has seen such woes
Their journey together has seen such joys

In the present instant....in the time that is now,
We become aware of no tomorrow or yesterday,
The now is present, present with your presence,
and nothing in the world can change this story.

The Chalice is lit....
Together with all the years behind and all the years to be glorified.
And the divine smiles upon our recognition - and the blessing is given!

A blessing - Opening up to the possibilities, the dreams and promises of the heart.

Deep inside your soul you hear a voice calling,
A voice incomprehensible................................
                                          It manifest's itself with all the expressions of your heart!

May the divine encircle you in gentle light
and may you conquer that which needs conquering.

George Bernard Shaw was right.....

Left or Right it doesn't matter,
there is no real alternative these days.

They have melted the fire,
They have taken away our desire,
We have found ourselves in a mire,
We have become a global crier!

Left or Right its all the same!
Obama should hang his head in shame,
Nobel Peace Prize!
No Nuclear Warheads!
Drone Wars!
Killings at Home!
The Torture Bay Still Holds On!
And Trump gets the blame.
Clinton the Shadow of Shame!

They have melted the fire,
They have taken away our desire,
We have found ourselves in a mire,
We have become a global crier!

Left or Right?
Shaw was right!

This is the Poets Fight.

Laughter

You tell your story.......

Your friends eyes twinkle in anticipation and delight,
Words fail you - but the story continues in your heart,
laughter pours from your stomach and the tears spill,
you struggle with your anecdote
broken words.....and shrills break through the air!

Your friends face each other....
The tale lost in cathartic merriment,
The love is infectious,........
Words fail and fail every time!

The bond of laughter has begun,
No rhyme or reason why.....

But our story is now lost in time....
and the stranger wants to join in!

Laughter can be the release of the struggling soul,
When we find home with a bird of the same feather.

The purge of the deep-self has renewed us!

The story is retold without the hysteria,
and a wry smile is all that is had.........
..........................................with exhaustion.

But sometimes, the soul has not been purged enough,
and so the laughter will continue................................

May it long continue with you my friend.

the forgetful unitarian

She says she is open to all,
but not this or that anymore.

He says that all belief is excepted,
but not that particular brand of thought!

We have no creed or dogma,
We rejoice in our freedom and liberty.

But She and He have created,
A creed and dogma of dislikes,
A creed of snobbery and a dogma of narrowness.

He has abandoned the ocean of belief and thought,
She lives on an island of self importance.

They have forgotten to be a Unitarian.

Here I Stand....My Covenant.

I'm listening to the soul that sings to me,
I'm deeply listening to the souls that can't sing.

May your soul sing bravely so it splinters through the darkness,
may your light pour into the realm of truth and time,
your being illuminating freely, uninhibited with expressions of love!

May those who sing, which is warped with ego and self-righteousness, be prepared for me,
I will be ready with a smile.....

For I laid my heart and mind in reconciliation with that which is greater than I and eternity.
And I have taken his hand, with his last act upon Calvary.....I will serve....

May I serve those I love with all my energy
May I serve those who despise my energy
For here I stand......

Amen.

Will I be a Hero or a Coward?

May I be blessed knowing the wrongs I have done,
as the waves smash the cliff face with innocence.

May I stand upon that precipice longing for truth,
before my innocence takes away my longing.

May the innocence of my being be woken up to me,
the debris of my naivety tumbles with a loud awakening.

May the earth under my feet support me through this,
but the horizon is shadowed by the tsunami I have caused.

Will I fall like the coward under the mistakes I have made
or will I rise like the hero?

No philosophy can teach me how, it can only bring me to that edge of choice....
There lies in each soul a coward and a hero, it is our natural division of seeking truth and safety.

resurrections

.......................................................
.......................................................
from a distant shore, the tick tock in your soul is heard,
it revives you...
.........................slowly.
You become aware of the softness that is around you...
You become aware of the aches and pains that walk with you...
You become aware of the love that rests with you...
you become aware......slowly......

The resurrections that occur every day...

Your senses start to sharpen...
The singing birds celebrate your awakening...
The singing is natures alarm clock.......

Opening the eyes to the new world...
The brightness of the day is too much...
We close and re-open until satisfied...

We turn to the mechanical tick tock....
To see our earthly time..
Slowly realizing... knowing our duties
Knowing our purpose....
Knowing our responsibilities....

Waking to the world...
I give praise to this miracle!
