Within the ocean roar and the great shedding

Imagining the flow feeding the land

Ebbing on the edges of the what next

Sniffling away the woe of sifting sand


Sitting quiet to the deeper listen

Chapel bells play a heart felt chime

Filling up on the breeze that carries

A song to ease the busy mind


Deep within the tinkle gathers

Calls the sorrow out to the sea

Rising up the whole world’s laughter

Begins to fill every part of me


Feel the chortle and the giggle

Feel the woe give way to joy

Forgive the unforgivable  

Let your laughter be deployed


And so it goes in the whole wide world

Woe and laughter shift and swirl

Ever present both be given 

Make your choice what one will curl


All around your life in present

One will come and the other will go

Back again  one or the other

What attitude will you let flow?

If it’s your birthday or you’re feeling contemplative as this day unfolds here are some thoughts to consider:

On this ‘1’ day/year things to consider are how you initiate life.  How you shine, how you hold the tools of your life and move with them, use them.  It’s a time to know where you stand/sit in the wheel of life.  Do you stand centered, at the edges, or are you pushing the edges?

How would you like to shine as this year/day unfolds for you?

As you look to your tool box of life, what tool(s) best fit how you wish to have your life experience?

Is this a time to push the edges of life, or stand at the center of it?  Both?

I cried for the whole world today

The entirety of all it filling me

Every ocean, every sea, every lake

every river, every pond, every puddle

I drank it all in and spilled it out

Sobs of sorrow and grief

Wails for poverty and loss

Howls for war and death

I wept for the dead kitten

I wept for my sick brother

I wept for a friend in need

I wept for me and you and them

I shook with the violence of

all those tears released

The magnitude of it all 


I cried for the whole world

I was the oceans and seas

and lakes and rivers and ponds.

For awhile, I let myself puddle

and then I prayed for peace

and love and kindness

healing and gratitude

I sniveled out hope

I gave a whimper of forgiveness

I moaned out a I’m sorry

When the tidal wave of it ceased

and the whole world had my heart

I forgave myself

If this be your birthday or just another wonderful day, here are some thoughts and questions to consider.

The Hermit shares his/her wisdom.  He holds a beacon of light that sways in the faraway or maybe the foggy night letting you know that wisdom is not so faraway and that the fog can be lifted with a thought and action.

Even in the shadows of the Moon, light isn’t but a step out where what was hidden can be seen or found.

How will you step out of your shadows?

What light do see just over there that calls to you to take action?

How do you bring the ‘faraway’ within reach?

How do you ‘birth’ your own spirit of kindness, peace, and compassion?

What is impossible that is  possible?

How do you define the source of Creativity?


Tho’ my spiritual journey does not embrace the Christian tradition that Jesus is my personal savior,I do acknowledge and honor the man Jesus and his life of giving, his unconditional love, compassion, kindness, and ability to Forgive.

On this day that symbolizes his birth, I sit here and honor the ‘birth’ of  all those things within myself; that I may be compassionate, kind, loving, giving, and able to forgive.

Everyday, is day to birth these elements of a life well lived in the consciousness of their expression.  How might you ‘birth’ the symbol of the Christ Child within yourself?


Give Joy to the World

Unconditional is love

Spring forgives Winter


Merry be your days

stack the cards in your favor

make a deal with Love


Who are you kidding

We always knew the true you

Let’s pop the bubbly

How do you burden yourself with trying to hard to get it alllll done?

As you sit quietly for a moment, what answers is right there waiting for you to hear?

Are you liking the pattern of your life?  What would you change?


The outside weather report:  all icky and raining.  Still too early for the Sun.  It will be hiding behind the grey.

The inside weather report:  slept for 9hours.  Oddly kinda sleepy, but then the patter of rain lulls my senses.  The cranky of yesterday fell away with the sleep.  Wondering how to tend to a situation that is annoying for me.  EEk.. I feel like I just wrote a ‘Dear Diary’ entry.  I guess I did.  Well, chuckle my way into that one.

Oh.. and I know you want to know that I am sippy the coffee with new and wonderful coffee.  Why did I stray from the best?  Silly me.

There is no shutting her up, she needs to hear herself

maybe to feel alive, maybe to feel connected, 

maybe cause her audience is captive

maybe cause it’s her only way in to being heard

maybe cause she lonely and her need is great.


I’m pretty sure she has no idea why herself

Her spew in constant jabber fills the room

Suffocating toxic spillage of words held together

In sentences of advise and her way to rightness

A need rather than an exchange or a sharing


A need so great that I can feel a pain behind it

That well of loneliness that aches to the center of the earth

A lonely that can never be reach or fed by anyone or thing

Maybe that is why I find it unbearable some days

That fear that lives in her loneliness and the stalk of death


I can find compassion, give a little kindness and goodness

imagine a colorful cosmic vacuum sweeping up the place

That can gather the spillage in the room filled with her

Endless, chronic verbiage that slams into the walls

fills all the space with her congested fear 






OPONOPONO….  “I’m sorry.  Please forgive me.  I love you.  thank you.”  






writing poems everyday


family and friends

Good coffee

When is it important to be “the judge of that”?

How do you ride the ‘wild’ and trust your instincts?

How do you honor your intuition?


~~~  ^^^  ~~~  ^^^  ~~~  ^^^  ~~~  ^^^


Jagged slits of care-lessness

razor words of thought-lessness

serrate what the heart had cherished


There is disbelief in years of togetherness

that bring a volcanic rupture so seething

Hate would be a reward to the disregard


Power and control have lost to freedom taken

a self seeking to find herself again before the ruin

bearing the anguish of years given selflessly


There is not just one on this path of togetherness

that has not given betrayal a run for the power

There is not just one that finds loneliness in the heart


Words unsaid for decades spill the hot lava

roar through the city of the heart with no regard

Swallow memories with burning breath


No one leaves unscathed in the ruin char 

Bitter black ash lays over hearts once dressed in white

acerbic words curtail wisdom of forgiveness


There is disbelief in years spent together

That words unspoken caustic the heart

leave blood spattered invisible on the walls


So much pain…


leaves jagged slits of care-lessness

slices razor words of thought-lessness

burns deep betrayals heart-lessly

serrate the heart once cherished



 Two more days till I have internet access in my new house.   I will say, that not having TV and internet have made for peaceful evenings and I get to bed before 11.  It has broken my morning ritual of writing and sending this off to my cyberspace blog, and then checking my email, and then reading the news, and then galavanting about the cyber world for a little morning get to know a little about nothing.  Etc.. blah blah blah.  Change is good.  It’s here.. deal with it … Right?

How will you stand centered between Heaven and Earth?

Do you know that when you take care of your self you take care of others?

HOw will you take care of yourself?



Ho’oponopono, (as I understand it) is an ancient Hawaiian practice that invites you into being fully responsible for everything that is right and wrong in the world.  ANd… to practice SELF forgiveness as a way to heal the world around you.  It is the act of making things right.  Forgiveness being a profound instrument in that healing.

When you notice anger in other, notice where anger lives in you.  When you feel the wages of war are despicable and horrific, notice where that war, that despicable place lives in you.  Notice it, and realize that if you ‘heal’ the anger, the war, the pain, the suffering, within yourself, you help heal the world.

The mantra, the pray that is to be repeated as you make notice of this within you is:


“I’m sorry.  Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.”


BTW… this is a profound way to help heal yourself.  And… I do believe it heals the world.  I invite you to take notice, and try it.


I have not read anything that speaks to what is already ‘right’, in Ho’oponopono, and how that might also be honored and held within the same elements of responsibility and prayer:  the goodness that  is part of this thinking,this believing, this spiritual practice.  If I am responsible for all that ‘is’ expressed around me and in the world: I believe it is equally important to honor the joy and profound goodness and kindness that is also reflected in the world around me.  When I see joy and kindness,  where does that live with me, and how might I honor it?  How might I spread all that pleasure through me and around me?

With this said… I have made a prayer/manta to it.  

Taking a moment to inhale into all that goodness and allowing it to fill me up. Saying a prayer to myself, a mantra that goes like this:


I am grateful for this joy.  

Please make me a conduit of kindness.   

I love you.  Peace be with you. Thank you.


I am grateful for this joy

Please make me a conduit of kindness

I love you.  Peace be with you. Thank you


I am grateful for this joy

Please make me a conduit of kindness

I love you.  Peace be with you.  Thank you


Below are a couple of sites that tell you about Ho’oponopono.  What do ya think?  To Forgive and love what is within you, gives forgiveness and love to the world.

Good morning.  Have a nice day.

Naked, she stumbles to save him 

Words unsaid caught in his throat

A story turning to a blue gag

suffocating him for not speaking


He reaches for her,

arms spread wide

eyes a bulging beg, 

silence screams from him 


Slow motion begins his speechless fall 

Her head a ram rod buries into his belly

The vomit of tangled words spread hot

over her vulnerability blistering


Her love frees him

cradles his story of pain

rocks the pleading beg

from silence’s lonely keep


Forgiveness is a sea 

floats the ship of relation

has harbor from love’s storms

Dives deep for a pearl of wisdom


They lay soft in whisper

in a ship with torn sails floating

bruised and blistered rowing

finding their way back home

How can your vulnerability be your power?

Who/what have you left out that needs to be brought in?

What is the difference between what is your weapon, and 

     what is your tool?
