Poem: Break-Through

I began this poem in 1993 and finished it in 1997. It describes a transformation from disappointment and heartache to selfhood. I hope you enjoy. Would love to read your comments.

hope“BREAK-THROUGH”

Free now of all reveling
in unimportant things.
Fraught with expectations
full of broken dreams.

Moving right ahead now
with visions grandiose.
Closeup of a happy young lady enjoying rainSummoning the courage
to conquer all my ghosts.

Knowing in the fullness
of the days that are to come;
my obstacles will fall away
and my fears shall be undone.

father and son on the sea on sunsetMindful in this moment;
connected to my fate.
My sense of separate self
begins to dissipate.

Dissolving now completely
into the cosmic whole.
All enters my awareness
I reach my final goal.

who I truly am.
I am Universal Mind
and it is but a man.

 

 

 

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Poem: Psychology of Seasons – The Affirmation Spot for Friday October 7, 2011

Today’s Affirmation:

The Universe provides for me in direct proportion to my gratitude! Today I am rich!

My dog Mia and I just went for an amazing walk on this beautiful early Autumn afternoon. We still have Indian Summer going here right now with temperatures in the 80s, but the shift in season is still clear. Everywhere you look leaves, walnuts, hedge apples are strewn across the ground. With every gust of wind, you can hear more of summer’s fruit and life falling to the ground in death. The squirrels are hyperactive right now gathering the ground’s bounty for the winter they instinctively know is ahead. Seasonal changes represent more than climatic transition. They also alter our psychology.

Our ancestors truly recognized and appreciated the meaning of the seasons. They celebrated and revered the cycles of the seasons.

The life that comes to be in the Spring and flourishes in Summer begins to dwindle in the Fall. Today’s post is a poem I wrote in 1993. I hope it captures the magic and meaning of the transition to Fall.

Psychology of Seasons

A sun-drenched sky
on windy autumn day;
out across open fields
passing clouds make shadow play.

Silent beauty in multi-hues,
but ominous in a sense;
for though today be delightful
darkness soon gains precedence.

Shortly days will end too soon
as the leaves of autumn blow.
The gods withhold their aid
to the lifeforms down below.

A chill permeates the air
and death is all around.
Evidenced by dying trees:
their leaves spread on the ground.

Depression need not be our course;
all things must come to pass.
Death is an integral part of life;
perennial as fields of grass.

For very soon rebirth takes place
and all springs back to life.
To our hearts the glow returns,
bringing end to stress and strife.

Given time we come to find
and perhaps appreciate
the coming of darkness and death
who’s end gives cause to celebrate.
