Thirtieth Poetry Post: Haikus to Calling it a Day

HAIKUS TO CALLING IT A DAY
Sunset on the sea Ushers in the closing day Calming down the pace

Sailboats heading in As fog horns bellow their call Billowy sails down

Soft flower petals Instinctively curl in now Awaiting night fall

Venus twinkles high After the sun has gone down Echoing love’s rest

Fierce winds blow by day Moonlight brings gentle rocking Soothing us to sleep

Twenty Ninth Poetry Post: Fantasy and Reality

PULSE SENSATION
Love took her by the hand Guiding her to trust The quickening pulse The inherent yes The other match lit In heaven For her to experience Because it was an Opportunity to know Love exits in other dimensions Without hindrances Found in this heavy world Of non- stop density Intensity of sameness Boredom Repetition Reality That simply cannot Will not open Explore Imagine Anything other Than itself As if too afraid It will realize it isn't As real as it thinks it is And what recourse would it have But to change Change into what If not it’s same sense of reality It has always known So love ushered in A new, higher vibration An instant joy Of recognition Of cognition Illumination Imagination New creation A magical touch Such That she had never known Outside of any given definition Rendition Inhibition Until she opened Her heart Finding that spark The inner flame Never the same The true soul fire Meant to inspire Aspire all to find it Kindle it Have it start In the heart Of another Who could feel it, too, And from there it grew …

Twenty Eighth Poetry Post: Haikus to Calm Our Mind

HAIKUS FOR SETTLING THE MIND
Deep breaths in and out Allowing thoughts to release Calms us down throughout

The ease of a breeze Across the faces of time Invites us to smile

Feeling gratitude In our heart for all our life Settles us in joy

Walks in deep forests Connects us back to our earth Our soul is refreshed

Barefoot on a beach Allows the stress to let go All senses renewed

Twenty Seven Poetry Post: Fear

HAIKUS TO FEAR
How real are our fears? Are they false information? Keeping our minds busy

Monster fears dog us Convincing us they are real Calming the mind helps

Fear contracts us down Pulling us away from life Love expands our heart

When anxiety Plays havoc on us daily Stop and tell it no!

Surrendering fear Lets us feel free to relax Give it all to faith


HAIKUS TO SCARY THINGS
Snake in the sage brush Rattles heard just walking by Fear turns to respect

Face to face with bull Took aggressive action first Animal ran fast

Big sport fishing caught A white fin shark swimming by Primal fear was there

Bear climbed up on deck Like he would scramble up trees His claw marks remain

In blinding snow storms Sudden stops spinning one eighty Facing cars straight on




Twenty Sixth Poetry Post: Haikus to Water

WATER TO LIVE BY
Depth of reflection A call to be still, to know Pond gazing below

Barefoot on a beach Grounds us in nature’s beauty Walking home in love

Rocks by flowing streams Bring us a fluid healing Letting go an art

Waterfalls help move By cleansing souls with motion Releasing it all

Deep sapphire lake Ripples out the flow of life Sit still and listen


World View Perspective: Consciousness is Self Love

Becoming conscious requires an inner and outer awareness of self.  Being aware of who we are, how we feel, how we react and interact with other people and how we feel alone with our self all factor into our developing sense of self. Accepting a higher power and an inner expanded intelligence requires an open mind, open heart and an ability to protect one's system and yet a realization we are all connected.  When we dismiss or discount an aspect of our self due to pain or confusion from the past, we unconsciously prevent a full flow of our own light.  We must open our higher nature to the truth of who we are in order to align with and attune to the higher and higher vibrations of Truth and Love, inherent in our true nature.  When we aspire to consciously remember, learn or know the truth we can find our path forward to understanding the bigger picture.  The bigger picture is that self love offers us the greatest opening to the bigger Love.  Fear, worry, confusion or negative thinki…

Twenty Fifth Poetry Post: The Final Straw

THE LAST DRAW
Native Americans sitting in a cave Praying to Great Spirit what Mother Earth gave Shamans walking in silent retreat Contemplating the path beneath their feet Yogis high in a Himalayan Mountain Searching by day for a fresh water fountain Spiritual women dancing under the moon Grounded to earth as they sing their tune Gurus chanting in Sanskrit before dawn In meditation after the sun is gone Mystical healers found in dense forests Gathering strength and energy for us Visionaries using their inner eyes To all of them, the end no surprise Gratitude for their life and all they knew What they lived by and for them was true Their spirit and soul in a body experiencing life Listening to their heart ends all strife When it is time to let go They’ll just inwardly know Their truthful wonderful spirit Will recognize, acknowledge and hear it Quite aware of their return After finishing lessons they came to learn They will simply drop their body, moving on To ultimately again gaze upon The highest vibration they…

Twenty Fourth Poetry Post: Go Tell It

TELL IT TO THE HEART
Whisper it Sing Dance Prance Give it a chance
Tell a joke, Make it laugh Offer riddles Hum a tune Just do it soon
Toast it Boast to it Read a story Pat it on the back Give it a book, a whole stack
Mumble Stay humble Tell it everything Gesture with your hands Everything it understands
Be bold Stand tall Do sign language Go shy Ask why
No reason to yell Or stomp about Just don’t doubt Or shout Swearing, definitely out
On second thought Just offering love ought To say all that’s needed Even more love given . . .
That’s how you’ll be greeted!


HAIKUS - TELL IT TO THE EARTH

Apple tree I see Your fruit and juice touches me Your shade lets me rest

Waterfall and breeze Your sounds gently comfort me I flow peacefully

Wafting aromas In rows of blooming roses Your scent heals my soul

Bright green tall mountains How you inspire my dreams Heights I reach with you

Night fall and sun rise I love your cycles of light Your yin and yang counts










Twenty Third Poetry Post: Location in the Heart

HAIKUS TO THE HEART
Entering into The heart of love brings us peace Because truth is there

Truth is in our heart It knows, it see, it feels love We are not separate

When we know our heart All of who we are can smile Knowing that love’s real

What is in our heart Will not ever leave our side It is within us

Loving our own love Keeps us feeling positive True love sets us free

World View Perspective: Loving Our Self is Loving the Earth

When we open our heart and remember who we are, we become conscious of who we aren't.  We realize how balancing what we really need and have matters. If our system is out of balance, we can use resources in excess due to fear and other false projections.  Being conscious of our system and learning what brings balance to our lives allows us to feel in harmony with the world around us.  If we carry too much rage, sadness, angst, worry or fear, we can pull too much from the people and environment around us throwing off a more natural balance.  To be in harmony with oneself, we need to understand our outer human nature and personality and our inner spiritual and soul based nature too.  We have to understand and forgive our body, mind, intellect and heart and work to keep those aspects, ourselves and our relationships in positive balance.  By learning all you can about yourself, releasing what you no longer need and embracing all that is positive, your life will become and stay balance…

Twenty Second Poetry Post: Optimism and Pessimism

HAIKUS TO OPTIMISM AND PESSIMISM
Fish gasping water Awaiting fresh spring run off Know optimism

Ugly ducklings wait Giving nature its full chance Showing true beauty

Bears wading in deep Eyeing the fast salmon run Hopeful hunger ends

Cherry blossoms open Gladdening our hearts for spring All optimistic

Women want babies Feeling optimistic dreams Softly cradle them


Twenty First Poetry Post: Back to Basics

IN THE BEGINNING
Seeds appeared to sprout Earth’s soil was a rich ground Designed to nurture
Sustaining life came Naturally up from the seeds Mother Earth gave gifts
Fruits, vegetables, grains Came to be harvested, used Feeding all aspects
All life forms could eat With abundance provided Only if all shared
Hoarding is just fear Stand back, there is plenty there Balance is the key


Twentieth Poetry Post: Families

FAMILY OF MAN
If anything can It is the family of man
If we know who we are We can touch a star
With an open heart We have the right start
Forgiving our past Lets us go right past
All that hurt Face down in the dirt
If we truly smile again to life Gone will be our inner strife
This isn't trite, it’s true Look within, you always knew
Recognizing we are all one Returns to us all the fun
We know when something isn't good We know what else would
If we stay true to what’s inside We would no longer stop and hide?
We’d open right up Fulfill our own cup
With the highest truest love Because for all . . .
It is what we’re made of!


Nineteenth Poetry Post: Soulful Colors

COLORS OF THE SOUL
Bright red fresh berries Feed the soul vitality Flight fight energy

Juicy juice of orange Perks up and awakens us Appealing to all

Yellow bananas Gather in bunches up high Like joined families

Fresh green vegetables Mother Earth gives to our health Keeping our heart strong

Blueberries give joy Nutrients fill our system Inspiring us

Dark purple good grapes A growing community Fully insightful

White cauliflower A taste of what’s possible Earthly bit of strength



Eighteenth Poetry Post: Weathering Life

SIMPLE PURITY
A pure drop of rain Sitting still on a palm leaf Like a peaceful breath
HEAT
Golden rays of sun Bring passions to the surface I grave your warm touch
BREEZES
A whispered wind blows Gentle reminders of love Loving love is real
AVOIDING STORMS
Any confusion Love clears our path so we see A bigger picture
RAIN
Some sorrow just comes Into our life to balance Until sun returns




Seventeenth Poetry Post: Pop Culture

CULTURAL CHANGES
What does culturally pop? Must have voice Otherwise growth stops If we stifle choice
Music carries a certain beat Different variations of a theme We still want to move our feet To best new sounds, it seems
Clothing styles shift and change Keeping us in current fashion Silky velvet fabrics, stylish to mange Fresh colors let stores cash in
Hip new words to flash and speak Push us to greater communication Zipping us in and out all week Onto the next innovation
Hair styles, short and long Curly, burly, surly Helping us feel we belong Whether extra manly or girly
Food develops a new taste Made for faster grab and go Conscious effort, no haste Healthier lifestyles continue to grow
Driving us along, the wave of youth Moving us all to quicker speeds Recognizing a greater truth Meeting newly developed real needs
Maybe it is best if we just embrace Current fingers on the pulse Acknowledge the newest pace Or discern what, for us, is false
Perhaps instead of a hybrid car You still prefer a truck Would we still go…

Sixteenth Poetry Post: Death of Misery

THE DEATH OF MISERY
Life is a joyful event Uplifting, never spent Breathing in and out is meant
To let go of what we aren’t right now Taking a new positive vow To remain conscious somehow,
Embracing joy in each inhale Bringing in fresh life, never stale Keeping our vitality healthy, not pale!
What if every bit of air Took away our deepest despair Rendering everything neutral and fair
What if saying a constant, “Yes” Cleared away any internal mess Life would be grand, I must confess!
Could it be? So very easy Releasing misery!
What if we demanded it go? Knowing we have let it know We are done, it is time to grow!
What if just after it died? It promised never again to hide I would love that, I confide
We would never need it back In the morning or in the sack We’d forget it, not keep track!
Imagine this is all true Really what would you say or do? Just be joyful . . .
Yes, that will do!


Fifteenth Poetry Post: Love and Anti-love

LOVE AND KNOT LOVE
Love is truth Not just for youth
Love makes us smile Not if we’re closed for awhile
Love lifts our spirit Not if we can’t hear it
Love invites us to say yes Unless we feel like a mess
Love is inspiration Not without aspiration
Love is open and free Not if we can’t be
Love expands our sense of self Not if we hide on a shelf
Love wants us to open Not if we think love’s done
If we feel love and block the flow, We knot up and cannot grow
Love is happy to guide us to joy, Unless we’re so knotted up  . . .
Nothing’s left to enjoy!







Fourteenth Poetry Post: If I Were the Sun

IF I WERE THE SUN
I’d shine peace on everyone Leave no needed task undone I’d dance among the stars for fun
I’d study everything to get even brighter Ask the moon to make me lighter I’d hope earth tensions go quieter
Using my light at sunrise I’d put hope in the skies Pull out an eclipse as a surprise
At sunset I might get wet Shake off the water, it might rain yet
I’d make everyday about infinite love Let all people remember what they're made of If they forget they can look above
I’d use my heat, To combat defeat, Help everyone feel complete
I’d want my long rays To touch your days Making sure my warm support stays
I’d tuck you in at night By turning down my light Just allowing soft starlight
I’d blast away Any fears that may Be too dark to keep at bay
I’d be quick to spot Anything that’s not Positive and have it caught
If I were the sun, I’d use a wind chime Bringing you music throughout all time, Good humor through a shadow of mine!
As the sun, one more word I’d send you messages on the wings of a bird, And poetr…

Thirteenth Poetry Post: Animals

GLOBAL GLORY – a lune series
Circle of life, Brings us all back home, To one place!
We cannot look, Away from our true connection, To all around!
In every breath, We are not separate from, The global glory!
Animals with wings, Creatures tall and small crawl, Yes, even snakes.
People in lands, Far away from where we, Stay in comfort!
Young and old, Told they will never know, Or see life!
Seasoned, worn politician! Gathering all forms of religion! Even wise shaman!
Beyond human boarders, Including the sane, the ill, Yes, even hoarders!
Wealthy, healthy, wise, Moving, grooving, on the run, Affect the whole!
In any degree, On any continent or sea, We’re one naturally!
Once we see, No separation, you and me, Embraced . . .

Global Glory!

Twelfth Poetry Post: Where We Live

WHERE WE LIVE Whether it is a city,
A dusty old town,
In the daily nitty gritty,
Inside a castle with a crown!
Our human body and mind,
Needs good safe protection,
Food, water, a friend to find,
Kindness, respect and affection!
Yet what of comfort,
That is consistently there,
Housing strong like a fort,
Or with others who care!
Unexpected things can hit us,
Just when we've found our place,
Like a high speed reckless bus,
Knocking us out of our space!
We can enter our heart,
And find what is sacred,
It is a really good start,
Stopping what has outwardly bled.
If our table,
Perhaps our couch,
Isn't so stable,
Our world just says, “Ouch”!
We can always go within,
Guided by faith and love,
A place to begin,
What life is made of!
Whether we meditate,
Or quietly pray,
It helps to contemplate,
Every day!
No matter where you live or how,
Everything for each is right,
Let your love and gratitude show . . .
Open it up, day and night!

Eleventh Poetry Post: Lightening up

OH, LIGHTEN UP
Big, heavy thought, You've had me caught! It is time you ought,
Look another way, Please don’t stay, Go away today!
Pack it in, I’d rather grin, Now is when.
You have been too grim, I’d prefer to swim! Go attach to him!
Why do you dog me? Go climb a tree! Just let go of me!
I am not in the mood, Take a hint, Dude! Go find some food!
You bring me down, I am done with the frown! Take it to town.
I am going to dig a hole, Kick you in it, the goal! You deplete my soul.
I’ll release you underground, Where you’ll never be found! You’ll disappear, not around.
I’ll grab the next kite, Trust me, I might! I prefer the light.
I’ll rise up high, Make a mark on the sky! You ask why?
Because you’re a burden I know, Not letting go, So I’ll just have to show,
What you do is hold me back It is a fear of lack, Not ever cutting me slack!
You aren't even real, You block my way to heal, Let me through to feel!
Love is what takes me higher, It is my muse’s freedom to aspire, A lighter perspective to inspire!
I’ll let you go and …
