On rainy days

The storm outside rages

Wind bending the stoic trees


On rainy days

Your busy world succumbs

Everything slowing to a crawl


On rainy days

The storm inside quiets

Nature reminds our minds to whist


On rainy days

She washes the streets

No people with their thoughts


On rainy days

We are excused

To sip a tea guiltlessly






Life Process

You are a diamond focused

through one facet at a time

The chosen lens distorts you

It is unavoidable


Your experience is unique

The lens you use is up to you

You can view your reality

in any way you desire


Your emotions are tricky

Fickle and enslaving

Master these emotions

See the difference


Put your love first

Your world will be full

Practice gratitude

Life will be precious

Accept without attachment

Liberation will flow


Life is a gift given

one moment at a time

Without focus

Without consciousness

You will react to all of it


Anger will create a hurtful world

Sadness one not worth living

Complaints for your job

Annoyance at traffic


All emotions come from within

What you feel, chosen or not

It will spiral into you

Knot inside your being

To sabotage you later


Emotional arrows

Piercing their target

They also pierce backwards

Right to the archer


So practice peace

Feel peace

Like a seed it will grow

And become your reality


Life is a process

An ever stacking

unfolding fractal

unstoppable force

You have been given this


If you don’t choose your reality

It will be chosen for you

You will miss out on the moment

The eternal beauty that resides

In a single drop of your life





Perhaps a drop of coloured oils

Perhaps a nodding head

A mind like a prairie wind



Perhaps it can’t be avoided

As in an awakening from sleep

Perhaps your digits need staining



It’s nice outside, you know

Perhaps you forgot the night’s stars

Perhaps a splatter and a smudge
