Recipe for removal of bitterness…

I was going to participate in the poetry month for April but I realize it takes up so much of my time, so I’m going to do it intermittently… 🙂
This is my recipe for April the first! (one day late)

recipe for bitterness

Mix in sweet gratitude and let it seep…
Take dollops
of surrender
And pour in deep…
Let presence enfold you
immersing the pain,
on a low heat of forgiveness
whisk in the remains…
of grace and mercy,
with heapfuls of love,
blended with compassion,
and using kit gloves,
sharpness will boil away, as you ladel out blessings
count them very slowly,
it may be messy…
it may take courage to let it dissolve,
bake on high and
you will evolve…

bitterness is removed
with loads of patience
serve with love
and dedication…

Monday Musings…

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
― Albert Einstein

the nature of things

Looking up close
seeing the light,
embedded in creation
gained insights…
the transformative essence
of floral gifts,
in the nuance of nature
heaven exists…

Surrounded by a host of invisible beings,
enlightened presence
translates into meaning…

An invitation…

“The wise man does not lay up his own treasures.
The more he gives to others,
the more he has for his own.”
― Lao Tzu


Their open hearts announced
an invitation,
to be the fragrance of love
and generosity!

Exposing their true colors,
they were worthy of celebration,
and those who beheld them,
flocked to
their arrangement…

Tinged with a little of the wild
and cast with passion,
their quiet attitude attracted
sentient beings
who grasped the resonant tones
of deep kindness
and affection…

their treasure not in transient things but in gifts of love, freely given…


Flower gazing

Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”

~ Mary Oliver

spring flowers

splashed with color….I
ponder quiet gatherings
that breathe in presence

blushing messengers
remind me that I’m absorbed
with this wonderment




Monday Meditation

“We listen for guidance everywhere except from within.”
― Parker J. Palmer Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation

ripples on the water

Innermost silence touches my skin,
in liquid light
I enter in.

Caravans of hope take me through despair.
visceral reflections,
grief becomes clear.

Mystical gateways counteract the pain,
whispered auguries
in sacred domains.

Splashes of radiance assuage my tears
in cosmic altitudes
I exhale fear!
