      thankful for what we have been granted  


          deep thoughts in which to ponder

glimpses of morning light

each and everyone can be 
thankful to count as precious those glimpses of morning light
that filters into our lives reminding us
 that today we have been granted
 additional priceless moments in which to design and refine the
purpose in which we have come to be.
rejoice in your gift

                            three elderly women                                     

                     chattering about the meaning of life 

                 three elderly women sat on an old wooden bench
                             under the shade of a tall oak tree
                          chattering about the meaning of life 
                 each carried a book that was opened on their lap 
                             but the titles i was unable to see 
                          with their voices they filled the park
                 as persuasiveness reckonings expressed in tones
                          that sounded quite utterly impressive
                yet i did not understand the words that they spoke  
                   is it all so complicated this subject i'm hearing
                             that in truth directly affects us all
                      in which book may i seek out the answers 
               to these questions that now lay heavily on my heart .

                              protection for the heart

                              the deceptive power of the mind 
                      covers over what truth reveals to the soul .
                              and the meaning of this is what ?
                    fear of facing reality as perceived to be true
                           forces the mind to protect the heart .
