Consider

Susan, from Poets United, shared the following, which gave me lots to consider:

According to Mahatma Gandhi, there are Seven Deadly Sins that could destroy society:

  • Politics without principle.
  • Wealth without work.
  • Commerce without morality.
  • Pleasure without conscience.
  • Education without character.
  • Science without humility.
  • Worship without sacrifice.

Here are my thoughts:

Consider

Consider

All that truly benefitted
I worked hard to attain
Safety
Scholarship
Relationship
Flexibility
Strength ~ Balance
Being Sane

None Of these
Can I gift you
Unearned
They do not serve
The Practice
The Journey
Commitment
Guide to what you deserve
Or, more rightly,
What you need

We Are All One

“We are all one child spinning through Mother Sky”
– Shawnee

We are all one

We Are All One

We are all one child
Blessed, Sacred, of The Divine
Intimately connected through breath

We are all one child
Able to support or defile
Each birth, each life, each death

We are all one child
Arising from, returning to
The power, source, love, noblesse

We
Are all
One child

Summer Rain

In Tucson
Desert monsoon
Pours torrentially
Spontaneously
Delivered with cacophony
Roads become waterways
Wadis, rivers now
And the toads
Sing
Out

Then
GreenPeace
and Sparkles
