Friday poem: New Day

Happy weekend! I  hope you have some fun plans scheduled. Rosemary and I are celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary this Saturday. Yeah, it’s hard for us to believe too!

Yesterday I promised a follow-on poem to “Trends & Patterns” published here. Here it is; make it a new day!

New Day

My teacher of soul says every day is a new day.
We are always at choice to make our way
Into the next moment,
Into any state we can imagine.

The power of mind is the same power that created the Universe.
We have that power in our grasp;
It is enough to move the ego behind, beyond, tucked in safety,
To let soul enter the field.

There is a richness there, fertile ground for happiness.
Plow if, plant it, watch it grow, add water,
Bring warmth of the high sky day,
Breathe with the life all around.

Every day is like this – new.
My teacher of soul says, make it what you will.
It is alright to ignore trends and patterns.
We are always at choice to make our way.
