come dawn’s rainbow sky
avian arias ring
gratitude’s reply

To each, this new day bestows a precious endowment. In return, what gift shall we bring this day?

not just I, alone
beyond are all I have known
but a thought away

As facets of god, our souls interwoven in oneness, never are we truly alone. This journey may at times feel solitary, yet the mind’s voice and a soul’s reply reaches across eternity.

greater love to be
imagined, just becoming
man’s kind legacy

Each sunrise shines new light upon humanity’s ever-evolving character, revealing the sum of every intent or indifference, each word and act, throughout countless lives. This day, imagine a greater tomorrow.

old ghost given up
faithfully unfaithful myth
falls as light to mist

We are more than what we now know. Yet, in the face of revelation, absent the courage to set free outdated beliefs that have been lifelong companions, we become less.

chaotic churning
old battling new, adieu
marks the tide, turning

At the confluence of old and new, chaos prevails, much like the turbulence produced when rain, as a swollen river on its hero’s journey, rejoins the ocean. Take heart that a sea change is underway and persevere — all will be well.

twirling, unfurling
we, in the realm of nature
become one, fully

Only from the perspective of oneness with all will we fully address the shortsightedness of our societies. Not a primal backstep, this is our eternal, upward spiraling, hero’s journey of departure, growth, and homecoming, renewed.

along social faults
dark acts rumble, quake, and flow
broken hearts to gallows

Harmful acts are the cries of actors in need — need rooted in society’s complicit indifference to its inbuilt inadequacies. Each act is a prompt to remedy that which is truly broken, rather than further break those impaired by society’s mores. Placing social reform above vengeance elevates wholeness over perpetual violence.

complacent assent
conjoins complicit intent
to divide, not guide?

Whether through disinterest or intent, we collectively create an outer world mirroring our inner views. Holding views of physical and spiritual separation breeds crippling indifference toward another, stunting ourselves and our world. See — and be — the world as one.

dark, drowning reigns fall
awakened to love’s bright call
crowning none and all

Culturally-ingrained self-interest undermines our greater collective potential. With the interest of all being the guiding light for personal and collective acts, we release the myth of scarcity feeding the cancer of self-centeredness.
