Incredibly Artful


Fancy this…
Incredulous delicacy
Infiltrates infusions
Poetic plunder
Pleases plentifully
Pledge a single oath
Solemnly swear it
One possibility only
Today, to plot a new course
Scream out a scheme
Rendered from fond dreams
See prophetically
Make propositions
Of the truest sort

Toward twilight
Activate yet another
Burning desire
Over the rainbow
Cross this zenith
And anticipate
Another approach
Whirl on multiple axial centers
Find pure gratification

Act then…
Be effortlessly free
Wildly fanciful
       Even if set apart
Tempestuously tempt us
Extract agreement from me
Sufficiently treasured
We all achieve more
At a higher rate
Of learning
Through devotion
        I wish this:

Of inspiration!

Full Face



Moments before sunrise,
not long before dawn
a new day truely began
as this journey started fresh
in totally crisp, cold air
with white backdrop of snow
looked up to see the source
of this brilliant light’s glow
fully whole moon shone
through tops of stripped trees
naked branches stark revealed
this face once partially obscurred
as wispy tattered clouds pass
shadows left, then disappeared
came to light in lingering night
smiled a face so gleefully at me
shines just as an angel would
to guide a sure path to heaven
saint or sinner mattered never
darkness lifted, inconsequential
for God has said He gave this light
to show all mankind through any darkest night we must traverse
the face seen, a babe so sweet
innocent, round face
Face of infant Jesus
Christmas week fast approached
Gave thanks for so many gifts
gifts given from pure grace alone
spread joy, love, laughter
ever more by morning’s star
help feed the hungry, clothe the poor
assist anyone less fortunate than us

fully whole


Speak Out


In remains
Pieced together

Particular participles
As, twelve disciples…
Fled that sordid scene
May we be more brave


And I would
Speak out now
So very much,
Soon enough

With any little given

Flagrantly admit
Depth of descent
Antonyms amassed
Of an ancient story

Anatomy lessons
Well spent…then
For very fine guises
Apply today to you

Only in reparation
Of reputations

Although, this: here
Constant aspiration
Conspires to undo
Contemplates more

Admiration becomes
Seductions reduction

In all ways amends
Conflicts of reason(s)
Amid amiable faces
A muse of amusement

In hilarity reprized

Judge not even self
Lest less be sighted
Guarantees can expire
Posture pure poets posh

Into postponement?

Right moments are
Must be made current
Forget this prudence
Blurt out emotions…only…

Gently relinquish

And with pause
Say just, the words
Of necessity: Truth
Once heartfelt search



What do we really have to lose?

Free Yourself Up

Freed Up

Stand on a beach
Mentally seen
Restless this shore
There on the edge
An endless ocean ahead
In limbs loosed widespread
Skills honed for challanges
Feel those waves roll in
Creation brings new beginnings
Hear this crash and roar
Know they break rock
Wear mountains down
Over millenium in persistence
Power corrupts even the toughest
Creates sand…
Tumbles shells, and pebbles,
Over time into rubble
Makes fine particles
Broken down, elemental
As elements, we can be remade
Reborn each morning
Become more useful
Freedom allows us…this…
The mind knows not otherwise…
Unless you tell it so
The difference in time
Past feels like present
Project into your future
All you can dream
Let it be all you can see

Imagine the change has come

Arrived already with bells on

Practice any new improvment

Til it is a habit you may keepwpid-img_20140324_120709.jpg

Wood Carvers


The Carvers

Sit quietly, contemplate; before solitary work begins
Earnestly find truthful studies, subjects learned of
See the flow, ways grains grow in each piece offered
Any tree, once alive, though its sap has quelled and dried…
Gains a new chance, some formed function in conjuntion with life

Begin by removal of all excess, slivers shaved away
Uncover all housed under; beneath blocks or slabs
Sticks chosen have figures hidden under surfaces
Release the secret suns, stars to shine, new moons
Feathered birds appear to fly high when made right

Smoothed surfaces decorated, painted and stained
Carved detail etched, extemporous shards whittled
Away with any mess, you bet; so others see clearly
Beauty is created here for anothers enjoyment also
Excitement grows, pride may swell, work done well

God helps creativity escape from our fingers freed
Weathered hands, yea, tell stories silently: a creed
Blessed, become more well known, through a need
Gab and laugh while we share experiences in deed
Lifetimes multiplied through company others lead

Sharp knives shape lives, cut into depths of wood
Aged flesh and bone begin to sing that spoken of
Stone sharpens awls, tools make grooves, lighten
Forms break through to enlighten ever more often
Experiences given, shared; repeats so many lessons
Learned as written, told in person, willing to listen
For better to hear, see, and feel together, revelation


Mentor and a muse


We are all students. And we are all teachers. To have mentors and muses is essential to growth. To be a mentor can be one of the most fullfilling experiences there is. To be a muse is to allow another into your inner world long enough to allow them to learn the art of the way you live, the spiritual connection of life. Your open mindedness and willingness to be of service can give hope, and fire the imagination of others. This is the imperitive if we are to change the world and life here on earth!
We can learn beautiful lessons from children in the simplicity of their delight and wonder. The eagerness and enthusiasm can be contagious.    We can also help to teach them the skills it takes to live successfully. Our experience is essential in assisting others to avoid mistakes ahead of time just as it is important in lovingly instructing another in a very good way to accomplish a task.
  Then we must let go to allow them to find thier own special way to execute this, thier own creative expression.


Our parents and siblings, friends and relations, along with all those teachers, ministers, instructors and professors who patiently guide us…
I honor and commend you and am glad to say, to always be on the ‘lookout’ for more fabulous examples is exciting in its scope!
