Hello 2015

Hello 2015-fireworks-mrwallpaper.com

Welcome twenty-fifteen
I’m so glad you came
I’ve been looking forward to your arrival
Your mountains of Joy I claim!

Oh, Twenty-Fifteen
Baby year filled with awe and dreams
May you grow in truth and kindness
May they flow to us in many streams

Let us begin with a pledge of Peace
Let us our Love of Life renew
Let us recall that Thoughts become Things
Holding this truth in all we do

The very best within us
Can well be revealed this year
If we hold ourselves to our heart-felt standards
Remembering – all Life is dear

Most of all, for you, dear friend
I see Peace and Joy abound
Rest in the knowledge of their presence
And they’ll be yours the whole year ’round

In Twenty-Fifteen let us picture
Each of us for the other
Fulfillment of our sweetest intentions
One right after another!

Good-bye 2014

Goodby 2014-fireworks-mrwallpaper.comGood-bye Twenty-Fourteen
What a lovely journey it’s been
I’ve had a few adventures
I’ve made new and wonderful friends

As the last moments
Of your presence fades from sight
Let me send with you my gratitude
Before you disappear into the night

For how precious is the Gift of Time
One might even say
It is the only Gift of Life
Granted day by day

In every fleeting moment
You may find your Heart’s Desire
The reason for Living is Loving
Love sets the Soul afire

The thrill of Life is to discover
Love’s amazing eternal power
By being present in the moment
And in every mysterious hour

Will you pause with me a while
To thank Twenty-Fourteen
For all its gifts and revelations
That a year ago could not be foreseen!

A Wednesday Prayer

A small thought
For the middle of your week
May Love and Kindness
Be what you seek.

May Compassion and Joy
Move throughout the land
May it pass from Hand to Heart
And from Heart to Hand.

May thoughts and deeds
Be of Peace and Care
May that come to pass
For everyone, everywhere.

Remember this Promise
And claim it with me
Metta–Unconditional Love–
Will set us all Free!

The Patterns of Life

Rain drops on leaf

When rain falls
Upon the leaf
Each drop enlarges
In strong relief

The patterns of life
That are etched there
The love, the pain
The joy, the care

Do not avoid the storm
And the rain
But study, instead
The path of each vein

To treasure the beauty
In each drop of rain
That flowers in wisdom
From each moment of pain

To see where you’re going
From where you’ve been
You can make paths
That are joyous again.

A Prayer of Love for Animals

Now is the perfect moment
To love all the creatures dear
As we never know how much longer
They will be with us here

All of our animal friends
Give our lives sweet meaning
Whether chasing a ball in the yard
Or their lovely feathers preening

Whether far, far away
In some exotic, distant land
Or right in your back yard
Under your loving hand

I thank you darling Nature
For all the gifts you’ve bestowed
For the stunning array of creatures
From jungle heat to arctic cold

For all the moments of joy
My own little friends provide
When the evening shades fall
Sitting right here by my side.

The Moons

The moons will lead me to you
As I sail across the seas
Adrift, yet filled with wonder
Led by evocative sea breeze

What ocean came between us
As we sailed on waters clear
What darkness cleft our journey
When we held each other dear?

Oh moons, splendid moons
Aligned near and far in the sky
I pray you, guide my ship
To unite my Love and I

Oh gorgeous tempest ocean
Oh tall ship on fiery seas
Oh dual moons soaring above
Eternal God-wrought frieze

You may think I’m but a tiny creature
Small and powerless in your net
But I have vast Power with Love
And my Dream will triumph yet

As I bring together Forces
That first set the worlds in motion
I will reach my destination
Love’s shore across the ocean.
