In the Moment

In the Moment

inner Self
          day-consciousness
complements
          in balance

breathe
          with calm
inner vision
          directed outward

In the Momentconsider a sphere
          influence
watch it fade
          emptiness

accept the warmth
          nothing
draw it inward
          with calm

close your eyes
          feel the warmth
always home
          belonging

compass needle
          to the real Self
core empowered
          completeness

central to experience
          full with oneness
gift of the now
          in the moment

 

This poem is inspired by Steve Tanham’s Radiance of the Invisible Pearl.

Inharmony

Inharmony

Sinistrous
And murderous

Lunacy
Conspiracy

InharmonyCasting pall
Your nightly call

Ebony
Cacophony

Out with thee
And let me be

Nevermore
To hear your lore

Make your home
With somber tomes

Writ by Poe
As you well know

This poem was inspired by Euphony, by Beverly Crawford

Now

Now

Thoughts like this call to me
Now and then
And then
I realize they’re always there

My lips may not move
Yet I wonder
Do you hear me
And miss me in the same way?

The time since may grow longer
But the time to come
When I may once more
Hold your hand is far shorter

This poem was inspired by Memorial, by Ron. Lavalette.

Known, Yet Unknown

Known, Yet Unknown

A friend you’ve never met
shares,
and you are the better for it.

Vision, with an eye for detail,
provides inspiration.

Vision, broad in perspective,
raises questions, brings understanding.

Vision regarding history
offer an interconnectedness.

Vision of the earliest moments
becomes a portal to the future.

And though still obscure,
as the final moment approaches,
a friend you’ll never meet
is willing to share it.
