When you are with someone,
be there
with your whole self,
for this is your gift,
your blessing,
an outpouring
of Love itself.

I set out bravely…

I set out bravely
looking for my life
in those early,
youthful days,
but I sadly
passed it by
hundreds of times,
blindly stumbling
along the way.

Mindless routine
and obsession
dull life’s
ever-freshness
and stifle its joy.

I rise from this bed,
reaching for paper and pen,
Spirit’s breath stirring,
spurning all thoughts of sleep now,
dream-like words surging through me.
