Where is my heart today? – A haiku for healing


My heart swells with pride!

It dwells in a place unknown.

I rely on faith.

A silent prayer for a loved one that needs healing.

Do you believe in Santa, Grandma?

Yes, I believe in Santa.

Don’t ask me why?

I love his red cheeks,

his jolly and heartfelt chuckle,

and chubby belly held up by a great big buckle.

 

Although you may think

I am a little too old,

I still believe in Santa Claus

truth be told

when it is time for him to appear

with his beautiful sleigh and gracious reindeer

it is also the time

that people seem to smile a little bit more

and some folks are kinder than ever before

Everything seems to be so much brighter

and the hugs that I get are a little bit tighter.

 

It is a time for family to get together

It is a time when even the sick feel a bit better

Yes, my dear grandson, I still believe in Old St. NIck!

I believe I once saw him climb down a chimney made of red brick.

Someone tried to convince it was all just a trick

But the joy and the comfort that happens to be

during this time of year is the best; Don’t you agree?

 

So, I tell you believe me

for remember it happens to be

the celebration of the birth of Jesus

and other holidays as well

when people no matter where

they may be from

celebrate love, peace

and they all seem to know

that when you believe

Who knows what miracles, together we can achieve.

Let life find you


Let Life find you

 

Let life find you.

To work its miracles

As you learn to grow

A kind and fine heart

So that others feel joy in living.

 

Let life find you

Living the life

A life that is squeezable

Like a ripe orange

Fresh and juicy

providing pure energy.

 

Let life find you

looking at yourself

In the mirror

see the magnificence

of His image in you.

 

Let life find you

Ready to stand up and deliver

Willing if need be

To sacrifice for a cause

live with purpose

 

Let life find you

Dancing, laughing, and singing

In the rain

Drenched in happiness

and fulfillment

 

 

Let life find you

Breathing heavily;

Feeling the warmth of the sun

Caressing your skin.

Feel life happening to you.

Make every minute count

In multiples of ten and then some.

Look at the views

how plentiful

and beautifully designed by

the creator of all.

 

And inhale deeply every chance

you get.

Watch your chest rise with

each breath.

Notice its perfection.

Listen carefully

to your heart beating away

marking time faithfully.

Let life find you living

as if it were you last.

Life is too short my friend;

Life is just too short.

Gentle Intelligence


Some would call her a little slow;

others never labeled her but

just accepted her “as is”.

Today I discover we are all wrong.

I found that in her heart lives a song

to be played and registered as an opus

announcing an intelligence

unknown to us

the ones who know it all.

Her insight blinded

by our failure to see the truth

hidden in her gentle soul.

From her I learn

humility and the meaning

of unconditional love

and compassion.

A lesson I will never forget.
