A Step Into Advent

A season before us
A journey awaits
Offering sacred
Let us contemplate

One of the soul
Of garden to tend
A prayer of beginning
For Spirit to send

Rich in the dwelling
A treasure to seek
Intentional focus
With heart of the meek

Emptying clean
Preparing the soul
In simple silence
To give You control

In gifts of the Spirit
Abundant the way
Of our Saviors birth day


Finding You Here

I don’t understand them
The way that they think
You showed me fall colors
In beauty, their link

A difficult challenge
In trial and toll
You showed me trees swaying
Roots deep in the soil

No hope before me
Dark is the night
You presented the stars
Focus on the light

If soul is willing
In view be aware
Way will be known
In finding You here

Time of the Soul

Of blessed moments
The losing of me
In time of the soul
We truly can be

Birth of the new day
Of sunrise to flow
Moves into being
Connection to know

Deepest of silence
From a mountain peak
View of perspective
For the soul to seek

Horizon of ocean
Comforting waves
Drifting beyond
Of what the soul craves

Into unseeing
Time of our prayer
So Holy the presence
Beyond all compare

Soul of dwelling into
Something of the greater
Beautiful to be
One with our creator

New Values

In this twisted world
So difficult to see
Would you help me friend?
Please encourage me

You ask how I’m doing
I am a busy bee
Respond that you are sorry
And you’ll pray for me

You ask how I’m doing
Highlights of my day
Sunrise, flowers blooming
In gratitude let’s pray

I saw an old man smile
I watched the clouds go by
I listened to a soul
Compassion eye to eye

Let us change direction
New values now to be
Sharing of God’s treasures
Love shared ‘tween you and me


When I don’t understand
Direction cast askew
Let soul speak of knowing
Lord I’ll depend on You

When can’t take it no more
Weary through and through
Lifting tired bones
Lord I’ll depend on You

When ego shouts its rage
Frustration starts to brew
Turn to Spirits voice
Lord I’ll depend on You

When conflict arises
Perceptions misconstrue
Let humbleness arise
Lord I’ll depend on You

When life comes to an end
Judgment time is due
A sinner’s hope for mercy
Lord I’ll depend on You

Pocket of Silence

Through all of the noise
Past thoughts in my head
Through peripheries glance
Spirit has led

A turning to prayer
The parallel way
Of life divine
In moment to stay

A pocket of silence
A soft dwelling place
The treasure is found
The answer is grace

Light of the glowing
Rebirth from within
In binding with You
A new vision begin
