Food For God

Written by  on January 31, 2018

















To those hungering for ecstasy
Urging to merge with the infinite sea
In your mind lives every possibility
To swim joyfully, ecstatically free
Ask the first person smiling
Contentment rests on a wise face
Listen slowly then let it go
Truth has no need to race
Ask the girl twirling in the air
Making love while fingering her hair
She laughs at lies, fears no crying
never judges, doesn’t even dare
Ask the boy dancing free
Spinning in space, relatively
Time bends from his soul
He reflects on his life positively
Ask the old woman, she might know
She has lived her life whole
And is still willing to grow
How to feel good, she says, I’ll tell you how
Live this fine moment right here in the now
What works wonders for me
Is accepting others the best I can
Be it woman or be it man
Being a loving person is being human
And if in any way I am caught by doubt
I use my love for God to figure it out
I ask for forgiveness and look for connection
I dance to the rock of ecstatic perfection
I read the Good Book
I give a knowing look
Still I keep my eye peeled
For that internal devil
Prejudiced scales are not on the level
Be a generous and loving neighbor
Create a kind mood
Think of Love as God’s favorite food
We deserve to serve it
Give it away
Offer it humbly,
day by day
The more Love we share
The more God provides
The clearer the picture
The safer all rides
Our Love for each other
Is God’s favorite meal
The reward for His feeding
is the joy we can feel

Positively 4th Grade

Written by  on January 30, 2018

Hey Everybody! Those of every age
how about some free poetry
A few lines of generic rhyme
Written down so all can see
Now is the time
We can be a poem or a tree
Both grown from God’s Earth
Blooming honestly
St. Stephen Daedalus
With his mother’s rose
Haunted, to the garden he goes
Playing that tune heard deep inside
Music only he and Heaven knows
It is useless to judge
Idealize, idolize, or compare
Nudge someone, compassionately now
We all have some Love to spare
When we have respect
For every song and every dance
It is senseless to pretend
And ridiculous to hide
When we have humility
We don’t need pride
A coupla couplets and some fancy preachin
Won’t change the world, It’s vain reachin
Just as looking backward for truth
Tricks us into missin today’s teachin
Peace is in the balance
of thought, word, and deed
Forgiveness triumphs over hatred and greed
The black of night celebrates the dawn of day
Life is a vibration
goin back and forth, like a relay
yin and yang, the silent bang
alternately inspired and utterly tired
It is all One poem anyway

Family Home

Written by  on January 27, 2018

A welcoming home wide open,
soothed by breezes breathing free.
Shaded from trees grown wise through the ages.
Illuminated with love learned and taught.
Founded on solid rock, grounded by thought.


All paths lead to this peaceful place.
A destination of refuge, salvation and grace.
Warmed by the hearth, abundant bread.
No one denied entry, no one arrives late
Gently we are guided through the gate.


Manifest in this very moment
self evident truths we hold so dear.
Without action or reaction, all is well.
Our eyes see present and clear.
Each heartbeat releasing fear.


From God’s essence we emerge
and in His sacred heart we remain.
Our mind breathing deep.
Peace and passion supplanting lust.
Agape kisses sealing trust.


The floor beneath us drops.
Our feet they hang.
We look up –
the roof is gone.


The roof is gone.
We are directly connected
to the Divine.


Thanks to the Holy Sound,
Each time we meditate,
We find another way
to release our weight
and carve for ourselves
a finer fate.


The earth turns on forgiveness.
Axis secure.


In this sacred moment,
paradise flashes.
Every supplication
granted us.


We are One if it is our belief.
Inclusion confirmed by inquiry.
Every natural law proving equality
and omnipresent everlasting unity.


This expansive view confirms no doubt.
Knowing with a sweet smile,
We all share a common source
– the Universal Mind.


There is never only me
and there is no other.
Our family is always One with another.


We receive all that we give.
We experience all that our love allows.
Powerfully so, Our mind can create magic
right here and right now
and dissolve those illusions which make us cry.
Our very thoughts
causes the Earth to spin and
suspends the sky.


Everything we focus on expands
Be it love we make or tears of regret
The key to mastery is no secret.


Perhaps, but with righteous reason.
Lighting up the mind merits repeating.
In this way we measure time.
A repeating chime.
Cyclical. Like desires. Like lack of desire.
Quantum, multidimensional. Revolutionary.


Re-turning at last
in this century twenty-first.
Floods and fires passed.
All things possible reign.
Golden grain grows again.


And it comes to be
we find our home
where we can always see –
inside our selves.
We were never lost, and are forever free.
Our family home lives in eternity.

Light the Way

Written by  on December 20, 2017

Christmas time spirit
Even the deaf can hear it
The glorious sound of angels above
Is no less than God’s heart beating Love
Through every vein
And in every way
Feeding us our daily bread
We barely notice we are being led
To shine like the sun on a beautiful day
Who is this child born Jesus?
No other than the Light within us
The Spirit of Forgiveness

Final Judgement

Written by  on December 19, 2017















Let go of guilt
It’s by Love’s hand we’re built
Born free of petty insecurities
Formed with thoughtful image
Perfected to the hilt
Asked of us only is a willingness to see
That God loves us and this Truth sets us free
So wake up and smile, get up off your knees
You will find in the end, illusion in sin
And in each moment, a new chance to begin
The way out mirroring the way back in
Saying what we mean and meaning what we say
Giving all that we have and having it all come back our way
Giving to whomever we please
We can have all joy and have no fear
Limitations are lifted by courage made clear
Our pleasure grows as we forgive
Strengthening us and protecting us
From within as from above
So let’s not conflict one with another
Remember you were made from love
Bite that guilt bug back
Say, “Be off with you
Get on down the track”
You’ll find that feeling good
Is worth a little effort
Worthiness is the prize
When we realize
We deserve it

Way To Go

Written by  on December 11, 2017

















When we keep

God in our sight

We can see how the darkness

succumbs to the light


We are

Here and now

grains of sand and wheat

allegories and little stories

made up by you and me

Running to and from the same direction

Light on two feet


Struggling with our divinity

We are

the three faces of eve

and every atom

wholly trinity

the evolution of eternity

peace love joy

sadness    sorrow   searching for more

we are all saints

we are all looking to score


To borrow a line from brother Bob

You ain’t goin’ nowhere

There ain’t no where to go

only way

A Gift for All People

Written by  on November 5, 2017


Jesus came back
after all of these years.
He lit up each heart
and smiled.
“Weep no more,”
His smile seemed to say.
“Dry each others’ tears.
God’s sacred love
is born in every child.

You can not lose it
and you can not refuse it.
You are created in my likeness,
the light of the world.
Release your judgments,
Ease your fears.

The peace you seek
exists within you,
never lost and
always at hand.
As the lion lies with the lamb,
in God’s grasp do you stand.

God provides bounteous bread.
Leavened with love,
welcoming all to partake.

God grants eternal life
made possible
by the love we make.

God plants ability of mind.
To our nature’s wish
our talents tend.

God offers to all a healing.
Allowing war to end
and broken hearts to mend.

Bite your tongue and
dodge the bullets.
God is complete
in a grain of sand.
All cliches in time
come true.

Cast off all doubt, let it go.
It costs no fear to be saved.
Accept the love you already are.
Consider yourself so.

We are all conceived
by the light of a living star.
You are destined
to find this Truth.
You need not look far.

Slow it down a bit.
You’re not going any where.
There really is no “there” to go.
Only here and now.

It matters not
whether you’re aged or child,
safe at home
or lost in the wild.
Love is who you are.
You need not know how.

This gift of God’s Love
does not dwindle,
no matter the depths you fall
or hatred you kindle.
Never has Love known more.
More can not supplant All.
Nothing changes what I say.
You can bet your life on these stakes.
The universe was created perfect
and remains perfect that way.
God does not make mistakes”

And Jesus smiled,
“Every creature living
on this wondrous
crust of Earth
is my body and blood.
Accept salvation with every breath.
Each day, joyful union,
birth following death.

I mind not any deed you’ve done
or judge any word you say.
Please indulge yourself
and practice this lesson today.
Play with others as if you were me.

Focus on wholeness,
and the love of one another.
Discover the thread that connects.
God’s perfection shines the Truth
all creation reflects.

Growth comes with every step we take,
and each thought passed by our mind.

How often have you thought
you have more than you need?

How often have you thought
it feels good to be kind?

How often have you thought
God wants you to succeed?

How often have you succeeded
in accepting what you find?

The past, a footprint in the dust.
The future, the fruit of our creed.
Here and now is eternal time
to harvest honey.
There is plenty for everyone
and many mouths to feed.
Does a child of God really need
lawyers, guns or money?

Hard lovers and easy riders too,
I wink a nod of approval to you.
It is your respect I wish to earn.
The same applies to all as to others,
Mohammad, the Buddha and I
breathe as brothers.
They have much to teach me
cause I have much to learn.

My message is simple.
You are loved for who you are,
not the illusions you sustain.
As it is written,
we are birthed Imago Dei.
You were created perfect
and perfect you remain.

Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or Jew,
those who are not sure,
atheist and Hindu.
With you I pray and play,
Sing poetry and practice meditation.
Manifesting a Universe safe and pure.

You can choose to criticize
or taste sweet discovery.
Perhaps division leads to decay,
and denying Our Love
makes pain endure.
God wishes you only pleasure.
That is for sure.”

And Jesus smiled,
“The future looks dim for bigotry
and those who spare no expense
on their greed.
Waging war, as sport or game,
may one day make you weep.
Do some men deserve
more than others?
Competition or cooperation,
which focus should we keep?
What reasons are there
to deny our brothers?

Truth does not separate
the treasures we have
from the abundance we think.
Eternal thought is pure,
peaceful waters run deep.
A satisfied man shares
his first and last drink.

Supplied for you are all miraculous means
and your heart’s beat measures all ends.
You were born whole and complete.
Your body will return to dust
just as your family and your friends.
I reach out my hand to you,
if it’s a hand you need.
But as I told you before,
you are perfect just as you are,
you are grown from God’s seed.

You are the air,
the land and sea.
You are the All to your very core.
You are beautiful as you are born
and remain so evermore.”

And Jesus smiled,
“Have brave and original thought.
Be right here and right now,
alive in the moment.
Tread on fear.
Choose words that allow others heaven.
Reign in your soul,
storm in your brain.
Listen for music
that lightens your day.

Respect your body – perfect but temporary.
Truly a glorious temple
raised with bones by spirit.
You are magnificent creatures
I’ll tell you again and again.
You’ll recognize my voice
every time you hear it,
and pass it on
every time you smile.
My message is always the same.
I wish for you all a lover’s kiss.
Time now to relax a while.”

“You are composed of that holiness
which blesses the stars into view.

The moon, like the sun too,
blooming bright or blue,
is born from the same essence as you.
Rolling with the sky
can consume all that you do.

Rhythmic rhymes sung with compassion
have no need to lie.
Your economy flourishes with your justice.
Material fortune founded on inequity
is withered and rotten.
Your worth is the love
you are willing to give.
Your debts, withholdings misbegotten.

Need does not reckon want.
Satisfaction is simple by deduction.
There is nothing in the past
you need to know.
You come alive
when you choose to
let your love for God grow.

Disease, like well being,
comes and goes,
ebbs and flows like all nature.
Either can be be dwelt upon
or diminished by the mind.
Our job is to heal one another.
Let our tongue speak our passion.
Let guilt resign.

when your feet find their stand.
Being Light in motion
is a blessing for every man.

Sleep under the stars at night.
Regard each other
with abundance in sight.

Live daily as if it were your last.
Remember each day
to forget the past.

Regard yourself well
and without separation.
The chain of love has no missing link.
We are all related closer
than the mind can think.

The sum of All is One.
You can figure it out
by figuring out the difference
between what you need to do
and what others should.

Do that which reveals joy.
It manifests wealth.

Do that which feels good.
It manifests health.

If you must resist a temptation,
resist the temptation to judge.

Instead of criticizing,
give others a loving nudge.

Let peace be your passion.
Make charity a priority.
Respect each other
with clarity and sobriety.
You will be rich, happy, wise
and never in the minority”

Jesus offered namaste
and smiled again,
“Take comfort in the knowledge
our hearts entwine forever more.
My blood runs through your veins.
I await for you on every shore.

Remember who you are and
mind not the lies you have been taught.
Think no fear and fear no thought.

God’s Love is alive
every where you look.
The master key for all locks,
written in every book.
Let God guide your sight
and reveal inner wisdom
to allow all that you might.

Meditate on my words but
travel far beyond these lines.
I kiss your face gently
whenever the sun shines.
In the darkest night
I carry within you
an ever lasting light.

Love’s language composes you
and sings your song forever.
God knows all Ways
and is always
willing to deliver.

Sow a spiritual garden.
Tend to the seed.
Focus on ways
by which All is agreed.
The Universe appears as you perceive.
Let go of limitations,
God provides as you believe.
The Truth is yours for the seeing.
Give to others what you would receive.
God’s Love is a present in every being.”

Comments, criticism and hugs welcome.

Here We Go Again

Written by  on December 10, 2016


















You’ve been through this before

Make it different      this time


Laugh at your sense

of ordinary Oneness


Clear eyed smiling

the flag of freedom


Millions of light years

to the nucleus from which we burst


Thick or thin

the whim of destiny


Make it different

Make it different

Make it different

this time


The flying eyeball sees all

and blesses the courageous with wings

Born of Blessed Thought

Written by  on July 13, 2009













Faster than the speed of Life
is God’s forgiveness of our misgivings
The Speed of Light
carries its message
that time is space
eternal and everlasting
you are born star bright, void of lies
the Tao of Peace shines in your eyes
In each of us is the seed of Life
and it is brought to fruition
by our desire to know
Nature has nothing to hide
You have a lifetime to seek
Finding the Truth and letting it go
The game is the same for the strong and the meek
Be not afraid of pleasure
But steer clear of temptation
Allow yourself to love at your leisure
The Love you came from is beyond measure
All in all there is nothing left to do
‘cept smile smile smile
Light up, toss a bum a dime
Bum a song and bum a line
Play “He’s Gone” one more time
Travel freely all the while

The book begins

Written by  on June 27, 2008


The book begins

with a strange awakening.
Ah, yes,

the subtleties

of a summer breeze.

Memories from the subconscious

rise to the surface.
Sing to me
but please make it silent
the night spies on us
we await the freeze
Tears well deep inside, inductively from

these ripples of experience.

For ever beginning

Written by  on September 26, 2006



For ever beginning.
Born again without end.
Creation in every way
decayed and renewed


I pray
with God’s hands
gently cradling
my head.
I feel
with God’s love
filling my heart.
I see
with God’s eyes
guiding me
inside my mind.
I give
with God’s grace
in my life.
What creates smiles these days?
For me, it chiming guitars.
Some rhythmic complexity.
A neat turn of expression or two
to subside the tides of belief.
God equates
all as one.
God equates
two with fun.
God equates
nothing is wrong.
God equates
love and song.
God equates
Peace on Earth.
God equates
equality at birth.
God equates
creation with celebration.
God equates
inspiration with elation.
God equates
togetherness with individuality.
God equates
Universal truth with man’s reality.
God equates
chaos with opportunity.
God equates
autonomy with unity.
God equates
all who go with all that remain.
God equates
One life to sustain.
Get it.
Don’t forget it.
Let it.
Don’t leave it.
Spread it and believe it.
Laugh it
and live it.

Paradise for Moriarty

Written by  on May 12, 2006

On the road, paved with schemes

Thumbed out, back cracked,

Fixin’ to fix the broken jack.

Abundance in trust

with relations to last.

Not knowing who or when to stop

Pretending my past.

Beat as heck,

I am bumming

these dharma blues.

Wing Sleep

Written by  on November 27, 2005

Fly in sleep
Bell the gong
Reverse the age
Silent song
My eyes lie lidded with dust
The faucet drips
The razor’s edge rusts
Dreams of youth have fled
with dreams of lust
Waking where the willows weep
Then rolling over
and sinking back into sleep
Down in the ravines
where kudzu creepers creep
haunted by thoughts
I should better not keep
and revealing myself
to the tealeaves that steep
Wandering through waters
my knees measure deep
I slip myself through
as posey children sing
round rosey ring
All things are possible
God bless the good king
Liberty loves company
dancing free, destined to see
often lit, catcher mitt
couplet split, creation fit
lighthouse hat, happy and fat
Weep if you will
Tears of appreciation
Tears of acceptance
and resolve
Tears of sweetness
and healing
Tears of lightness
and revealing
Tears that defy fear
and reflect the Truth
You are essential
This has always been true
It is your desire
with which everything connects
Everything connects
God’s Love to you.

Hippie Dreams

Written by  on November 27, 2005

Blowing in the mind going home
Sunshine Starshine Om
I sing the body of Walt Whitman
I breathe the mind of Allen Ginsberg
I revel in Joycian language landscapes
I take a trip on Cowboy Neal’s bus
I kiss Jimi Hendrix’s sky
I dance to the beat of Jack Kerouac
I space my time gratefully dying
I chase white rabbits
I read the news today, oh boy
I feel the poetry of Bob Dylan
I take a load off with the Band
I sympathize with the Devil
I roll with the Stones
I feel free with Cream
I turn turn turn with the Byrds
I let it be with the Beatles
I moondance with Van the mystical man
I talk with my head same as it ever was
I pearl jam my daily bread
I R.E.M. in my sleep
I politicize compassion
I am revealed in rhyme
I follow the Way and stay out of the way
I have everything and own nothing
I respect the musical wind
I eat the food of the gods
I am One with my brothers and sisters
I float on the pillow surreal
I dream the love that seems so real

Co-Creator Conspiracy

Written by  on November 24, 2005


Heaven lives where our heart rests
Hell is illusion that seeds to exist
with conflicts of interest
behind the confines of our imprisoned minds
in those moments we choose not to be kind
Our tongue – by tradition, an easy bribe
carves words that denounce and describe
life both ignorant and sublime
expecting still a return
in space and in time
When our eye focuses on brutality
We are polarizing reality
we must manifest equity
unfolding our love
as a butterfly creates a flower
balance of nature reveals
inner power
Creating peace
through peaceful consciousness
builds bridges of positive possibility
we are
each one of us
up to it
Erecting a bridge of expansion
connecting thought to expression
this alone is our own responsibility
Love is God’s main course
Desire, a justified dessert
Ecstasy, the food of prayer
Nourishing us and healing hurt.
When our smiles are sweet
Our eyes fired with delight
we know
without doubt
our path is right
No one experiences hell
by wishing their neighbor well
and lifting them on their way
together, and by choice
we create a lighter day
In the palm of our hand
is counted each grain of sand
We all choose our own voice
to judge each other or rejoice
So my friend, rest assured
let me put your mind at ease
We are healed and we are cured
We have collectively kicked every disease
Our prayer is always heard
No need to say please
Let’s use interchangeable pronouns
It doesn’t matter how It is pronounced
Me or Him or You or We
Any One sets any other One free

No Time At All / All The Time

No time to wait
The heart tick tocks
releases the fear
tears open all locks
drum beat open ear

Miracles Breathe Free

Written by  on November 23, 2005

Miracles breathe free
like the respiration of life
poetry verse and universe true
symmetry and equality
inequality too
Tears of rage and tears of grief
are miracles of human relief
Laughter and ecstasy are reminders
we can feel with divine belief
Chaos and order are the twin brothers
of that miracle we call creation
Alternately dominating and subjugating
Examples of interdependent relation
Miracles are the fingerprint
for the mysteries of fate and fortune
Belly full and beautiful
or singing the blues out of tune
Catch 22, a miraculous catch
Male and female, a miraculous match
A miracle can not be locked up
Like love, it has no latch

Tao Jones

Written by  on November 23, 2005


There are any number of ways
the Truth can show
There is only one way
We go
That way has no direction
There is nothing there to know
Howl at the moon
Howl as you sway
lay down a rhythm, ride a wave
If there were rules against it
It would not be
the way
Oh, no.
Let us not start that game
everything is ambivalent
There is only one

Peaced Together

Written by  on November 23, 2005

Like a puzzle it was
Pieced together by a feeling
Falling into place
Peacefully unfolding
Freeing and redeeming
But mostly fun

Down the rabbit hole and over the rainbow
Clouds formed gently upon thoughts sky high
There is no need to lie
and no need to steal
Once you realize it’s all yours to reveal
