(A)Wak(en)ing Up

I woke up
this morning!
Yes, I did!
Can you believe it?
It is true

* It is not fake news *
(ok, that was bad)

that I not only woke up
but, I am awake
alive and free
to be
M  E

Totally, committed
to this moment

Completely, in love
with this day

Absolutely, grateful
for everyone
and everything
as everyone
and everything
is serving me

and my
higher good

Ode To Thee

I love you
for your pretty face

though it is upon
that brow
that I long
to embrace
with but my lips


to trace
a thousand
of caresses
I would make

and a thousand
if that is what
it would
to peer
so deep
into those big

and place
but a peck
on your soft

yet it is not
your pretty face
that I love

but your precious
that buckles
my knees
yet it is not
your pretty face
that I love

but your
with lobes
I could nibble

for days
yet it is not
your pretty face
that I love

but your simple
that leads me
to your loving

yet it is not
your pretty face
that I love

but all of you
that I
do miss
because when
without your
I am remiss

In saying
I am but a boat
with no oars

when I am not
at your
pretty face

My Dear Love


It Was Not Until I Realized That…

I used to not see compassion, kindness and love as being so instrumental to this world’s future (and to all of humanity) and furthermore would never have thought that these three words would define my consciousness…

until I realized that
I am who I am –
and learned to be
in love with that
who I am

I used to feel uncomfortable hearing that I am “really nice” and being able to see it as the compliment (as was the case with embracing other compliments as well) it is and was…

until I realized that
I am who I am –
and learned to be
in love with that
who I am

I used to see the world (and people therein) as a big scary place, especially those places (and those people) in the far distance over “there” where “they” reside….
until I realized
I am who I am –
and they are
who they are –
and learned to be
in love with that

who I am

I used to talk a lot, or more aptly, way too much because it did not allow myself the opportunity to listen (and yes, I have very good hearing and often hear even that which I am not supposed to hear, but whether someone says something positive or something negative about me, it really has little to do with me) and it was not until I got really quiet that I heard what was really important. But that lesson, as so many others, it was not…

until I realized that
I am who I am –
and I learned to be
in love with that

who I am

That I found
with myself
and who I am
And I learned to be
being only

You And I…..we….

I understand that
the 5 people who
we most surround ourselves
makes us who we are;
So, who are we then?
are we chained?
Or, are we free?
Are we blind?
Or, do we see…

…the world as a plethora
of potential and opportunity;
believing that faith
is stronger than hope;
knowing that people driven
by passion can get more done
than just about anyone?

I am you
You am I
And we together
Make 3
With whoever
we invite
Into our inner
with the divine



Keep It Simple, Sincerely

Why oh why do we inexplicably have such a propensity for name calling?

……unconsciously needing to call someone something derogatory – and that someone way too often can be ourselves with names like, “Stupid”?

……enigmatically think it is acceptable?

……reflexively believe there is no harm?

……compulsively put others down in order to somehow think we are raising ourselves up?

……mysteriously hold such pain within and the propensity to distribute that to others?

……mechanically see the faults and flaws in ourselves, in the people we meet, and the world itself instead of witnessing the strength and beauty?

……curiously deem kindness as a weakness?

……peculiarly believe that shame and blame is the only game in town?

……perplexingly not realizing the damage it inflicts on oneself, others, and the interconnectedness of all?

……inexplicably making life, and all that it is – including ourselves and everyone else in it, so damn complicated?

…..sadly underestimating the power of…..

                Keeping It Simple





Whenever I complain
I disrespect
life itself
When I forget the blessing
of each and every breath
then I lose sight
of what it is
to be here

Until I stop
giving attention to my
(and/or the world’s) plight
to instead put my energy
and focus on all that is right
then I will perpetually be
on spin cycle

When I have expectations
of others and of things
so far out of my control
then I will continually
be disappointed

If I compare myself
to “them”
and see them
as “they”
instead of
then I create
from all that
I am
we are

I am
We are

We are

Life is a teachable moment

Arousing Rockin’ Transcendence

Math and science
are the foundation of life,
but is the arts
that are the essence
of the human spirit.
Math and science prove
the complexity, power and imagination
of the mind.
The arts are a testament
to the depth
of the heart
and soul.
