Wild Wind

Wind howls through my mind,
tearing a treacherous path,
driving, destroying, demolishing…
The calm, cultivated landscape
erodes before me.
What can this mean?
What’s next?
A breeze speaks whisperingly
of a land too close to see.
“Come…”
And through the howling wind,
I go.


Quadrille, 44 words excluding title, containing some form of “whisper.” This one also goes for De’s challenge of “whisperingly.” Try your own and enjoy others at

To Be Fit

To center myself through the day,
I let all the world fall away…
My whole consciousness
curls into itself,
disarming the furious fray.

Amazing well-being I find,
curls out of the Infinite Mind.
With sweetest success,
abundantly blessed,
from chaos to vision so kind!

1. When the load of error is too much to bear
And the burden of proof disheartens your truth,
A stillness inside awaits to confide:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

2. When the load of strain is hard to contain
And the burden of stress is heavy at best,
A stillness within can help you begin:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

3. When the load of sight is clouding your Light
And the burden of sound is chaos all ’round,
A stillness in you keeps breaking through:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

Refrain:
So, look inside for peace of mind.
Nothing can save but the Spirit who made you.
Worry and woe, let ’em go,
And lift your eyes to find
The Christ Light in your mind!

Power of a Song

1. Ever wonder why you hum?
It’s to keep from feeling glum!
You sit a while and find a smile
To meet whatever comes.
When the music starts to play,
You open to the day,
Shed worry in a hurry,
Knowing everything’s OK.

Refrain:
“But it’s only music!” folks reply
When I say it’s love and light.
Just let it touch you when you’re down
Or help you right a wrong,
And you’ll know the power of a song;
You’ll know the power of a song.

2. When it sounds a little sad,
Music gathers up the bad.
It matches you and catches you,
And lifts you till you’re glad.
If your heart is feeling cold,
That song’s worth more than gold.
It warms you up and fills your cup
With comfort for the soul.
Refrain:

3. If you don’t know who you are,
There’s a song that does, by far.
Let it shake you up and wake you up
And lead you to the stars.
‘Cause that brilliant spark and shine
Is the One and All-divine
Who rings in you and sings in you
A special song of life!

“‘Cause it’s not just music!” I reply,
And I say it’s love and light.
Just let it touch you when you’re down
Or help you right a wrong,
And you’ll know the power of a song;
You have the power of a song!

Refrain:
Even Christ was a child once!
So how can you be anything else?
Even Christ was a child once!
So be gentle with yourself.
Yeah, be gentle with yourself.

1. You might be all grown up on the outside,
But on the inside you still cry.
Oh don’t be sad or let it make you mad,
And here’s the reason why.
Refrain:

2. You might take care of children and others,
Thinkin’ no one cares for you.
Oh don’t give up or hold back your love,
‘Cause you are precious too.
Refrain:

3. You might be lookin’ for an answer
To somethin’ you don’t understand.
Oh be a child with a faithful mind,
And know the pow’r at hand.
Refrain: (Twice)

Be gentle with yourself.

Cutting Edge

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

1. So many rules to follow in this life,
At work and school and in the places
Where we sleep at night.
And as we try obeying all the rules,
Let’s take the time to realize
The Principle of Truth!
Refrain:

2. Each lifetime is a classroom or a stage
With all the props and prizes
As rewards if we behave.
And as we do our best to play the part,
Let’s never miss the bliss of being
Who we are at heart!
Refrain:

And the whisp’ring hopes convey
There is a better way!
So listen to the Spirit
As you meditate and pray!
Refrain:

3. We see our health as anything but strong,
The treatments running rampant
Like the litany of wrongs.
And as we ask the questions for a cure,
Let’s bring to mind the One Divine
Who healed us all before!
Refrain:

And when the Spirit speaks, oh may we hear!

Refrain:
‘Cause We’re living on the cutting edge of Consciousness,
Where we can seek and find our purpose here.
The only thing to do,
It’s simple but it’s true,
Is keep our mind and body pathways clear
And do the Will of Spirit in good cheer!

Breaking Point

I had a break with life one day,
Or over many years-
But in a moment hit the brake
With whiplash to the fears.

You might call it an accident
With consequences sore,
Yet I soar with the Spirit now
And couldn’t ask for more!

There’s poor and there are destitute
Who own a mansion grand
And can’t pour out their bless’ed gifts
To lend a helping hand.

So when you’re at the breaking point,
Fear not for mind and soul!
The sole result of braking free
Is standing tall and whole!
