Deluged

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

 

 

 

Fingerpainting

Perhaps a drop of coloured oils

Perhaps a nodding head

A mind like a prairie wind

Perhaps.

 

Perhaps it can’t be avoided

As in an awakening from sleep

Perhaps your digits need staining

Perhaps.

 

It’s nice outside, you know

Perhaps you forgot the night’s stars

Perhaps a splatter and a smudge

Perhaps.
