“If the only
prayer you said
was ‘thank you,’
that would be
~ Meister Eckhart
asking for guidance
listening for the answer
Senryu: 5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
sadness turned to joy
negative to positive
anger turned to love
he thought what he felt was a feeling
but the alcohol always kept him reeling
looking forward he saw only the ceiling
his reality was never truly appealing
near death made him change his ways
time allowed him to see through the haze
his body recovered from the sick malaise
to a Higher Power he gives the praise
it became a slew of feelings that he felt
his roller coaster emotions needed a seat belt
his cold stone heart had begun to melt
a new hand of cards he had been dealt
a new friend and then more friends
a fellowship that taught him to make amends
how the wreckage of the past to cleanse
and the twelve steps that paid big dividends
today his feelings are a joy to explore
emotions that are allowed to soar
a life that has been his to restore
peace, serenity and so much more

“I want to touch people
with my art.
I want them to say
‘he feels deeply,
he feels tenderly’.”

Elfje: (Cinquain) classic: each word only one syllable
peace of mind
lull past the storm
Lune: 5 / 3 / 5
hearts were intertwined
God’s holy union
to be the person who can love
a gift which comes from above
it all starts with loving yourself
a contented soul who can lend oneself
Love is forever.
Love is no problem whatsoever
Love knows no limits
Love is devoid of all gimmicks
Love is a whisper heard by you alone
Love is the best feeling man has known
Love is to be whatever, as silly as it seems
Love is the fulfillment of the souls dreams
Love is to fly with the angels’
Love is having no expectations
Love is every second of every day
Love is love when you give it away.
Love is His gift to all alike.
Especially for the lucky guy named Mike
Love is serenity.
Love is eternity.
Love is helping someone love themselves.

This, and some of the above, was/are some of December’s
“Love is …..”
Love is the key to the Uni-verse.
Love is enjoying the right perspective.
Love is a lot of letting go.
Love is like magic in that both take practice.
Love is holding nothing back.
Love is for those that need it; and don’t we all ???
Love is creating.
