Candle focal point
The mind fixes upon light
Thoughts settle on peace

Poem: Give Me The Spring!

Give me the spring,
its light and hope,
or just some freshness to the air
and your uplifting smile.

We shall laugh and dance
in an April shower,
watch the sunrise together
by the empty bracing shore

You can tell me when it’s gone,
this all consuming darkness,
as the burgeoning sun
circles north to bless us

Poem: Light is Truth


Hiding a light
is like withholding the truth
One day it will emerge
and enlighten the whole
