Become the Way

Earth - Beautiful Horizons

Rising energy
Of the setting sun
Isn’t lost on heavy hearts,
The winds of change howling in our ears

Instead, the pressure lifts us up,
Rising to the peak of our existence
Where we see blue above the clouds,
Sun on the horizon
From another side of the world

This perspective gives us wings
To raise our fearful energy to grace,
Envelope our hearts in compassion
For a darkened world turned light

And lift our healing hearts into the sky,
Rising, rising to meet the sun
The light, merging and emerging,
Into night, into day

Become the way,
For a people led astray

Inner Space

inner space

In the great here and now
Everything’s changing
Everyone’s turning
Eyes to a new light

Some with hope and devastation
Some with the light of new life
Each fueled by the desire
For inner peace and love

The changing ones are leading
In the back doors of our minds
With carefully planted words and songs

Right up front in the conference halls
On the screens
In the churches
On the scenes

Yet pay attention to the quiet ones,
The ones who lead with gentleness and service
In the backdrop of the crowd

For Jesus even said, “Blessed are the meek”
And the meekest of us all
May possess the inner space
To hold the love that opens up
All our starving hearts

Do Love, See Love, Be Love

Miniature car carrying red heart cushion

In the great lapse
That is our time on earth
We are called for just one purpose
To do love
See love
Be love

Above all else
Each and every day

And yet the act of being human
Obscures the path to love
And so we struggle an entire lifetime
With this one simple task
To do love
See love
Be love

It’s love that will bring us home
Rebuild the crumbling pieces of our hearts
Love is who we are
Now and forevermore
Whether we remember our journey
Or simply keep forging our way
A spark of knowing as our guide

To do love
See love
Be love

Wide Open Spaces

Vintage endless road, photo taken from front seat of a car, USA.

Wide open spaces
Lure us to places of infinite possibility
Where our minds dare not go
And our hearts already abide

Lingering in the morning dew
Basking in the sunshine
Crawling through the grasses
To find each tiny creature of inspiration

Each is a gift,
A treasure,
A moment of grace
Each embodies the newness of spring
And the familiarity of summer

Where narrow minds open to new realities,
New worlds,
New faces
Like an infant who knows nothing but connection
The wide open spaces bring us back again
