The Sages So Ancient


It’s easy to call down fire on those on the far left, and those on the far right

as if we were prophets judging their sins

but hopefully we will listen to the sages so ancient,

the ones that declared

“Love your neighbor, as yourself.”

The Truly Great Heart


“There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.”

Robert Frost

How will you share your great and generous heart today?  Someone needs your encouraging words.

quote from Robert Frost



They say the fields are ready for harvesting now,

but some of our leaders became confused

having sown the wrong seeds, the ones

producing weeds, the choking weeds,

instead of life giving fruit

we so desperately need.


If we reach in far enough though,

we can find the seeds

that do grow life, the kind

that search for soil,

but that’s another poem,

Our Ageless Prayers


As our ageless prayers maneuver beyond our fears, we can begin

to blend our peace as a trickle. Streams will begin and form

into hearts, as nations care more about people

and suddenly there will be a new ocean

with compassion, being restored

to the earth.

It begins with a trickle.

The Flower in the Pond


In all of our dimensions, peace was always meant to be a covering

a flower in a pond for us to focus on, but in the ancient world

hatred was born and war was discovered.

Pray for the covering to be restored

for protection of sanity reigning

and for us to have eyes

for the flower

in the pond.
