Poems Spring 2009                                             

May today there be peace within.
May you trust your highest power
    that you are exactly where
    you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite
    possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
    and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing
    you are a child of God
Let this presence settle into your bones,
    and allow your soul the freedom to sing,
    dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of you.

St. Thérèse of Lisieux

My father rode a camel
I drive a car
My son flies a plane
His son will ride a camel.

Saudi saying

 

Just remember, there’s a right way and a wrong way to do everything
and the wrong way is to keep trying to make everybody else do it the right way.

Colonel Potter MASH

 

I meant to do my work today…
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree
And a butterfly flitted across the field
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand….
So what could I do but laugh and go?

Richard LeGallienne

Imagine  
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today... 

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... 

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one 

John Lennon

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, 
is by no means a waste of time. 

J. Lubbock

May the sun bring you new energies by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night,
May the rain wash away any worries you may have,
And the breeze blow new strength into your being,
And then, all the days of your life,
May you walk gently through the world
And know its beauty and yours.

Anon  

There is a Light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the Light that shines in our heart.

 Chandogya Upanishad 3. 13. 7.
