Monday Musings: Nightfall

When the night is born

Out of the last light

The day’s comings and goings

Are recycled by the mind

The words used and the silences

The doings and the neglects

All scrutinized by the heart

But abandon the judgment

Let go of the unforgiving criticism

Set your mind on a path to learning

Kindle the light of forgiveness in your heart

And let your soul dwell in the peace

Of the night just born.

Go Find Her

When you glance at her

hastily in the grocery line

or anywhere for that matter

it may seem to you

that she doesn’t want

to look anyone in the eye

and is even less inclined

to invite anyone into her world.

Proud loner she is

arrogant in her high hair

you may judge her

solely based on the cover

never asking

whether that’s really her

and never questioning

your own urge to judge.

 In all sincerity

truth to be told here

she is a free spirit

full of inner warmth

a true child of nature

caring and humble

a prism of light

in the heart of the universe.

You just need

to suspend your judgment

and go find her.
