Two for Thursday

When I cherish and
tend to others,
my own problems 
soon disappear.


Aid the
conscious evolution 
of humanity.

Light a candle

A weather poem

Why yes, I am just fine,
no I haven’t lost my mind,
and this morning’s time will bide,
dry and comfy here inside.

For months we’ve been imploring
for rain, please God, let it be pouring,
when in my living room’s safe mooring
I can be reading, writing, snoring.
We live in the nation’s Finest City,
so it's really quite a pity,
that to our couch we tether
when we get a little weather.

Nonetheless, it would be nice
to have some droplets (never ice).
Understand, I'm not complaining,

I'd just prefer it to be raining.

I get happy endings
in life when 
I don't stop
before they arrive.


Today, I plan
to listen,
Really listen. 
feel free to talk.


Today I plan 
to be quiet. 
No talking
will be necessary.


Today I plan
to observe
without reaction.
I'm better that way. 


Today I plan 
to pay close attention
to all of the
little things.


I can only really
please one person 
per day.
I choose me.


Sometimes I still get
angry, but then I tell myself,  
nope, not today.


Expressing gratitude
as soon as I wake up 
brings me happiness.


Appreciating the Grace
I live in 
helps me sleep. 
throughout the night.


"I am beautiful" 
is not about my face, 
not about my body.


Even when I avoid
the truth,
it sits their,   
waiting for me.


Less perfection
and more authenticity.
That's my goal. 
I failed!


Call me an idiot.
I would welcome that.
I like an empty mind.

September begins

It's a good idea
for a poem
to rest awhile,
until ready.


Simple pleasures
bring me happiness.
A malt with whipped cream.
What a joy.


Calling a friend,
just being there,
simple acts of kindness.


Each day
I have the chance
to be happy,
to enjoy the life
I chose.


Cooking with wine
is way more fun
than trying to
do it soberly.


When bad things happen,
they pass.
When amazing things happen,
they pass too.


I don't believe
everything happens
for a reason.
Some things just are.


When I can't figure
how something works,
I assume
it's simply magic.


If you would be happy
for the rest of your life,
create a garden.


You can't score
by kicking into
your own net.
Even children
know this
