The Spirit Within


Unaware of the Spirit within,
I look at my reflection
and am drawn to my flaws
and imperfection.
Aware of the Spirit within,
I look at my reflection
and am awakened
to a deeper vision
of beauty and grace.

All around you…


All around you
there are struggles
raging on.
All around you
tenacity, patience,
and courage.
You are one with
nature’s noble effort,
it’s ongoing, heroic journey
from death into life.
Live your days
with awareness and
great respect for it all.

From the Water’s Edge

Kindle Ready Front Cover

A blogger friend suggested to me, a good number of months ago, that my daily blog musings could make a good book. Not too long ago I eclipsed the 400 blog posts mark and began taking his suggestion seriously. Now I’m only a month or so away from the release of From the Water’s Edge, a book of 365 musings for daily meditation or anytime reflection. It will be available from Amazon and Kindle. I hope there will be enough interest among you readers, when the book comes out, to prove my blogger friend right.
