Focal Point

What do you see?,

The sun shining bright

Glorious

Flecks of gold,

Streaks of light streaming downward,

Or darkness creeping?

Speak Seeds

Plant, in hands, seedling

Twas just a few words

They caused a mind to think

A seed was planted

Senryu

Words are also seeds, and when dropped into the invisible spiritual substance, they grow and bring forth after their kind. –Charles Fillmore

(So then, be sure the words you speak are good words)

Right On Target

Bullseye with arrow in the middle

I gave life to a word today

I released it in haste

It formed like an arrow

Piercing its target deep

In regret I tried

To take it back

But it still

Left a

Mark

I gave life to a word today

Releasing it with tenderness

It formed like an a heart

Hugging its target tight

Awaking lost dreams

To hope again

Happily it

Left a

Mark

Be careful how you speak and what words you bring to life as they all leave a mark and make a difference.

Life

Bridge, golden light

Did you ever stop to think

Your life is but a blink

Its here and then it’s gone

Like the morning dawn

So be it as it may

Treasure life today

Before it slips away
