Full moon

red flags
high tides
full moon
so bright

what’s born
from this well worn
soul that strives
to be the light

so unsure of what appears
amidst the changing times
still here til and out there
to discover what I’ll find

red flags
high tides
full moon, lit to shine
across the bridge of sighs
time to leave it all behind
to decipher in such wonder
how this naked soul survives

Elements of Peace

Imagine a world where we serve the positive energy of Goodwill and Peace and we let that energy motivate us everyday.
In a world that seems to live in conflict we can’t put a price on the value of Peace.
We all need to find Peace. It may just be something we need in our own lives.
Peace is powerful place from which to live. There are always going to be challenges to peace
If we all find a place a peace within ourselves we can learn to deal with those challenges that come in our lives and the world.

The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence.” —Norman Vincent Peale

Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

The seeds for great states of peace and Light come from within each person. When people begin to see that the Light of the soul is within all beings, then they can begin to see the unity and true understanding of the Light within all. With this understanding, the problems that arise from the separation of the self can begin to be resolved.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales

when it all goes away
what is left to survey
in he vastness of empty space
will we recognize the faceless face

will the emptiness survive
the formless form
where we abide
will spirit know our name

when we return to claim
the souls domain
and where will our home then be
in the dream held in eternity

when it all goes away

the wind swirls in brush strokes
painting the colors of spirit across the sky
with invisible energy that flies
in currents the birds find and ride

bright Hawaiian shorts hanging to dry
dance in the sunlight
by an open window that catches
sparkles of visions passing by

The wind does not grow old
as it passes through time
the Spirit does not age
it’s just this empty form that slips away

and you can watch the wind
push the clouds across the sky
and paint colors that reflect
the aura of the earth that reaches high

oh I love the air
and the winds that speaks to me
and Gods breath of Spirit
with that mana of pure energy

but you can’t catch the wind
as hard as you might try
so it’s best to watch it dance
so freely across the sky

Jessie Close on Bozeman

I talk to my old friend Jessie Close about Bozeman Montana.

the soul of Cuba’s crying
can you hear the call
young people pleading for freedom
as they’re shot and sadly fall

all around the world
people now stand up for what’s right
they dare to take a stand
so courageously in spite
of no support there for their lives

the heart of Soth Africa is calling
asking you to care
the rift of politics has split
and exposed corruption there

and Haiti is still suffering
needing some support
and we can’t help but wonder
how can peace be brought forth

all around the world
people try to fight for what’s right
and they dare to take a stand
so courageously for a better way of life

and as humanity evolves
what was once hidden
will be brought to light
we are one world after all
and with peace we must unite

oh this path of evolution
that journey we’re all on
built with loving care
by the bringers of the Dawn

I bow to all the teachers
and the servants of the way
and the ones who dedicate themselves
to help others on the way

I honor this Creation
every living thing
the planet that we dwell on
and the Curators mysteries

I recognize Divine spiral
and the lessons that we need
that join us all together
to fulfill evolutions destiny

His new book Is called Carry On, Reflections for New Generation an empowering collection of final reflections and words of wisdom from venerable civil rights champion, the late Congressman John Lewis at the end of his remarkable life.

Congressman John Lewis was a paragon of the Civil Rights Movement and political leadership for decades. A hero we won’t soon forget, Lewis was a beacon of hope and a model of humility whose invocation to “good trouble” continues to inspire millions across our nation. In his last months on earth, even while battling cancer, he dedicated time to share his memories, beliefs, and advice—exclusively immortalized in these pages—as a message to the generations to come. Organized by topic ranging from justice, courage, faith, mentorship, and forgiveness to the protests and the pandemic, and many more besides, Carry On collects the late Congressman’s thoughts for readers to draw on whenever they are in need of guidance. John Lewis had great confidence in our future, even as he died in the midst of one of our country’s most challenging years to date. With this book, he performs that crucial passing of the baton, empowering us to live up to the legacy he has left us with his perseverance, dedication, profound insight, and unwavering ability to see the good in life.

boxes of memories
momentos through time
to try to capture things precious
so cherished in life

journals kept daily
all stored away
waiting to be opened
to reveal what took place

ah but can life be captured
in pictures and words
Spirits as illusive
as that shy red bird

reflections and perceptions
so carefully observed
often fall short
from being transferred

how do the boxes
all stored away
ever really capture
what’s inside the memories conveyed

oh to let it go
and let it just fade away
just as these Polaroid pictures
do the same way

to let life just be
in the present be seen
then to Spirit fly free
alive in fleeting memories
of time and this dream
