A Few Simple Things

This was written the same day (night)…  As I grew closer to completing my Journey, my emotions were high, and hopeful, as the bitter silence continually gave me hope against hope that Love would win the day!  Having nothing else to keep me going, not wanting to admit that the cold cruel “real” world had once again intruded upon and perhaps trampled my ever Romantic, ever Hopeful, ever Poetic heart, dashing my Dreams…  The future remains yet unwritten, but the present gives no assurance that anything soon (or ever) will change what has been done.  Still…

A Few Simple Things

 

Blessings as Stars

countless and bright

fill the soul with wonder

and light our path at night!

 

Love as the Sun

warming to the core

its failure a black hole

no escape if it is no more!

 

Life as the Moon

waxing, waning, then gone

succeed or fail, we choose

the World turns, and moves on.

 

Dreams as the Earth

plenty for us all

without a good foundation

sadly much will fall!

 

Hope as Sky

in the moment we define

when forsaken, beauty’s lost

when cherished is divine!

I am a Writer and Poet, Construction Worker with a Union, would be Organic Farmer, Son, Brother, Cousin, Friend, and a few others. I would like to add a few more; Husband, father, .... the list will grow! I am currently working on personal growth, publishing my first book, becoming a Journeyman in the Carpenters Union, learning more of Gardening and Green things, and embracing Life as it comes! Life and Love are only as easy as we allow them to be, but are ever present, when we are ready to embrace them! Time is a tricky, devious thing, and Life is never easy. Nor should it be, the challenge is how we grow! While ever developing mentally and Spiritually over the last decade, The "obstacles to progress" are morphing into challenges to be met, and are ever changing. Such is the amazing Wonder that is Life, as we Learn, as we Grow! Too much structure is at the very heart of institutionalization, and not enough is the path to chaos. Learning that balance I believe is a Life-long challenge. One of many, as balance(s) is(are) ever changing too! All the while (and, as we ALL are...), I am, have been, and continue to be, so very Blessed!! Divine Providence, the "Finger of God", or even a reference to "Footprints"; all and more apply! The Energy of Life is all around us! Creating, Energizing, Healing, Invigorating! Life feeds the Energy of Life! Call It/Them how/by/what you will... Their presence and influence in and upon my Life has been amazing, and I could not, and would not, be who or where I am (NONE of us would/could be), without Them! Divine Providence, Creators/Masters of the multi-verse, the Spark of Life, the Energy that Nourishes, Higher Power, whatever/however you so choose to acknowledge our own smallness in the Universe! Without Their Love, Their Guidance, we are lost. We are sick, we are incomplete, when we lack the Faith to Heal and be Whole! I am growing, and Healing, and Learning, and am greatly in need thereof. But I AM growing, and Healing, and Learning! And so the Light "at the end of the tunnel" Shines ever bright! And Day by Day, I struggle, to be better than I was the day before, and to be prepared to be even better tomorrow! Hallelujah! Aloha! Namaste! As-Salàmu Àlaykum! Peace!
