Progress

Waves breaking
Have I progressed far enough?

I walked through the day in safety.
My joy is palpable.

I was very hopeful.
I felt alive and truly free.
I see no illusions ahead.
I hear no discouraging words.

I am at a perfect place of peace.
This is such a magnificent gift.
I’m praying that it will persist.
I hope for more progress tomorrow.
Once more, I shall be set free.

The Season of the Year

Meditation Red Sun
This season is calm and serene.
Today came forth without a cloud.
I walked through my garden in peace.

My energy level is rising.
I have many ways to spend my time.
The afternoon has a soothing breeze.

Days go by quickly.
Night falls with beautiful colors.
The floating moon casts a silver sheen.
What a beautiful lake amidst the prairie.

I Was Traveling Briefly

Ripple Effect
I was traveling briefly that morning.
It was raining and I walked slowly.
I approached a bridge and paused.

Drops melted into the stream beneath the trees.
The ripples reflected a flickering light.
It was as if they were stars twinkling in the sky.
Their brief constellations brought me to a night long ago.

I wasn’t walking, for my mind was running.
I slept briefly by a highway.
I woke in the darkness lost and alone.
In my fear and confusion, I looked up.

That night, the sky’s canopy was glorious.
I was amazed by many shining constellations.
Myriad stars filled my eyes with their beauty.

Today I saw water winking at me on the stream.
I felt the storm crying in sympathy for me.
The sky had brought me back to that night.
A teardrop fell and I was healed again.

The Evening Party

We are ONE :)
The weather has been changing.
The evening with my friends has closed.
Our party was over and the guests have left.

An unexpected storm disrupted my plan.
We did not flee but the strain was evident.
I did not welcome the surprise.

A friend consoled me in my disappointment.
He said there would be other parties.
We will find a chance to celebrate again.

Tomorrow I will pick up the pieces.
I will plan for another event soon.
After I invite my friends, I will wait.

I will not worry about any problems.
I will remain flexible and spontaneous.
I will learn to embrace the unexpected.

A Gift

Kestrel
The day was wholly cloudless.
The open sky was blue.
Dark clouds were far away.

In my mind it was a great day.
I knew that my people were near.

The beginning of each day is holy.
Moments like this are a gift.

I am close to the golden sun.
I find hope in the simplest of signs.
