Water of the Tranquil

Water of the stilling
Captures now the gaze
Ever gently moving
Peace within its waves

Silver in reflection
Caress in ebb and flow
Contemplation drawing
Treasure here to know

Comfort in the rhythm
Letting silence seep
Syncing of our breathing
Caress of Spirit deep

Blessing of Creator
To open soul to see
One facet of His beauty
To gift tranquility

Moving The Heart

Bless me a vision
To enter into
Free of distractions
Clear now the view

Open the heavens
To pour in your light
Seeing beyond
With Spirit’s insight

Flowing in waves
One of souls drawing
Moving the heart
Wherever your calling

Send now the breeze
Attune the soul to
Your moving direction
All the day through

May soul be accepting
Receive message true
Mold in reflection
The vision of You

One Word This Day

On knee before the Lord
A Word of quick insight
Wisdom powerful
Spoken through the light

Flowing to the soul
Planted in the deep
May it blossom wide
Through our being seep

Always on the mind
Shining through the heart
In sharing and receiving
Binding love impart

Let its fragrance linger
Fully to embrace
Treasure of divine
The sacred word is grace

Let it echo onward
Grace in all we hear
Grace in all decisions
Grace in words we share

Smile

A simple thought
To offer this day
Arising from heart
To give away

In moment of stilling
To the source of light
Withdrawing in prayer
A flame to ignite

A gift now to carry
A purpose this day
Intentional greeting
In sharing of way

With each smile blessed
Love’s action to bring
A gift to that person
A beautiful thing

(based upon a quote by Mother Teresa)
“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”

Soul to Fashion

Such beauty within
A young soul to fashion
The elder is guiding
With lifetime of passion

In wisdom of years
And Gods view to share
To identify
The gifts that they bear

Encourage and bless
To shine in Gods light
Awareness of blessings
His purpose, highlight

Gift of true beauty
One of two sides
Book of the binding
In which Love resides

A delicate nurture
Within loves embrace
Free of the ego
Showering of grace

Love everlasting
Which heaven is fond
Joy in the blessing
Of an eternal bond

Miracle of Story

A soul was sent to me
Blessed with story, shared
A parable of truth
One beyond compare

Labor of decades
Of enduring pain
A story came to birth
God’s glory to proclaim

Through obedience
Of spirit revealing
A miracle blessed
In two weeks of healing

Encouragement for soul
Let providence be heard
Binding in the Grace
Of the eternal word

A story’s conversion
To eternal peace
A message proclaimed
Deaths fear released

Through a faith filled soul
A vision in-between
Through facets of love
The unseen is seen

My Source

Coming to Your Presence
A drawing to the call
To dip from the well
Of the source of all

Fountain of goodness
Source of kindness be
Fill the bucket full
To share the light of thee

Ocean of mercy
Sins to pour into
Washing pure as white
Be quick to forgive too

Instiller of strength
From which heroes draw
Same faith as our Fathers
That Jesus shared with awe

River of wisdom
Flow this knowledge true
My source of everything
Gifted here by You
