POETRY CORNER

"Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason." —Novalis

Poetry is inherently healing. It helps us speak the unspeakable and say the unsayable. It is a way through the difficult stretches on the river of life. Whether reading poems from others or writing our own, it is a powerful companion, elixir and healing balm during the life journey.  My first book of poetry, Moments is now available. Here are some excerpts:


Success

You’re a success today
if you are here
and present
to the murmurings
of this moment,
unimpeded by the
poisonous banterings
of a world gone mad.

You’re a success today,
when you can look through
eyes, moist with compassion,
beholding the one you meet
with grace.

You are a success today,
in this moment, when you
hear Grandmother Earth
call your name...
welcoming you to breathe
her air and walk upon her skin...

You are a success today
when you are one with
all things...
honoring the humble and simple
beings that come across your path...
...earthworm, grasshopper, and cricket...

You are a success today
when you no longer remain imprisoned
by the tar of regret,
but can stand naked in the wind,
and smile as you breathe in
the sweet fragrance of Now...

You are a success today
when you take my hand in yours
and look deeply in the eyes,
and honor the sanctuary that is
built by the word, “we”...

And you say it with the pain
and joy of knowing we are both united
and apart in a great dancing paradox...
that surrenders neither one of us,
as it dances us into the mystery of
communion...

Do not be shy,
do not deny today,
do not deny what you know...

Shout,
Shout out your truth!
before it’s too late
and find the success
already living within you...
