Bright.. A poem


Deep in the depth of all there is

From the depth of the Universe

Light and darkness give

Their purpose for all to see

 Endless infinite for eternity

Energy flowing ceaselessly

Flowing through everything as it should be

 Choose to be shallow Choose to be deep

You plant the seeds of what you seek

The depth of what you choose is what you reap

The depth I choose for me

Deep in the darkness

In the light not many ever choose to see

In the depth of the Universe that resides in me

I wish to express a thought or two in my way, inspired as I shared dinner and conversation with a new friend his name is Paul. I have been wondering at times about my choices and the path I am on as sometimes I don’t seem to be producing the results I had expected or desired to see. I recently watched a video of an Abraham Hicks session that expressed the universe always provides indicators of where you are in relationship to alignment with your inner self or higher being, what ever one chooses to call your soul.

I had the gift of such affirmation when I spent the day helping a friend move and after the move I was taken to dinner. We were about to head out the door and a friend of my friend called saying he was heading out of town after his weekend of National Guard duty and would like to have dinner. What a gift in so many ways was this day.. I have many friends that have very deep spiritual roots they embrace. Several are Native American that happen to be Shamans today I made a new friend that is a Native American and a Shaman. Funny how we ask questions and an answer comes in the most unexpected and mysterious way.

When my friend asked if I minded sharing a meal with a friend I had no idea how that meal and new friend would provide me with such a beautiful gift and energy shared on a grand scale.

Have you ever sat down with someone you just met and had them just know who you were in less than 5 minutes? Have you known who they were in the same time? Paul said” you are very deep” I smiled and responded as are you.

Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts and taking the time to do so. I am grateful and appreciate your presence and for being the positive change our world so needs. Thank you for sharing your smiles and your love they do change the world for you and those you share with. Thank you for sharing some with me and allowing with a little hope me to share some with you. 🙂 Joe

Oprah… A poem and a thank you.


She used have a show

My former wife watched faithfully

A show I never watched

Silly as it may seem

A woman that I never met

Only seen on TV

 That has changed my life

So profoundly

It was through her sharing

Of the books she chose to read

The books on her list

One my mother bought for me

It was book called

“The New Earth

Finding your life’s purpose”

By Eckhart Tolle

That changed my life

Forever in a very special way

Since then I have read many

Of the books on her list

Some of them I know that I have missed

Yet the first one I read

Was for my soul a kiss

I wanted to thank her

As her story I read

I observed her deeds in wonder

Grateful for the words she said

Many she has helped

Some even with a bed

I may never get to share my thoughts with her

My book may never make her list

My words so softly spoken

She won’t even miss

I however know that the gift she shared with me

Is one I cherish as I find who I was truly meant to be

Thank you Beautiful Woman and TV personality

For sharing the beauty of your soul

And many souls like your own

With a simple man like me

I wanted to express a thought or two and show my gratitude to a lady that has been such a powerful force helping so many on our earth to change course. By asking us to look inside and find that inner source, the common ground that we all share the love of ourselves and learn to love everyone else of course. Somewhat like Star Wars the powers of our souls is something like the “Force” The lessons that I have learned as she has shared with many human beings. Her guests and their presence and the words they choose to share are a shining example, that show the world they care. The love expressed for many by the few that dare.

Thank you Oprah for all the many gifts as the ones you share my soul they have given such a lift.

I thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two in my own artistic way, These thoughts have been on my mind and it was a thank you I had to say. I hope to have shared a smile or two and I am grateful for your taking the time to visit. I also want to say thank you for being the change positive and sharing those smiles and your love making our world a better place for all we share it with! J

Dee… A poem and a story


You called my name when you were in pain

Your heart all but broken the tears made it plain

I wondered as the tears they fell

Like a downpour a heavy falling rain

Many you have loved and watched them walk away

The ones you cared for deeply are married to someone else

One on this very day

The gift you always wanted for which you often prayed

You cried your tears of sorrow expressed you dismay

Told me you were unworthy and ugly what terrible things to say

I listened with love as you shared your thoughts in your hurt way

Waiting for your tears to wash it all away

I asked when you had started to slow down

What is that you see

 why is it that you called

and shared these tears with me

You are a beautiful woman

 it what is inside that counts

even if you are not like a supermodel

 weighing less than an ounce

You are far from ugly and more than worthy

I asked you to look in the mirror

Then tell me what you see

I see the beautiful woman that you have grown to be

It is an honor you share when you were feeling hurt and all alone

That you chose to see you when you called me on the phone

The soul you have inside you so brightly it has shown

Mirrored in the love of the soul I call my own

Thank you Dee for calling my name when you were in pain

I hope that you don’t feel that way again

I hope you remember beauty is quite often found in the rain

Your soul is beautiful love always there remains

I choose to share a thought or two and in this instance I am just going to say what I have to say in the best way I know how. Recently I have been given what to me are some of the highest honors and compliments a simple man like me can be given. I share this post to express the sincere feeling of gratitude and appreciation for the gift of friendship and love I have been given by some very beautiful people. Love is the highest of honor one can share with another there is no golden medal or pile of money that reaches my soul in such a way as having a friend call or express how much my being there or the words I have shared have helped them in some way. One of those gift was a phone call from a friend.

Dee is a beautiful young lady 37 years old, she battles low self esteem and weight issues often make her question herself as well as hurt herself. My friend has done much work on herself and come far in realizing who she really is,” a spiritual being having a human experience” is how she views her life. She has taken many courses and spent much time learning who she is,  she is a martial arts instructor as well as a spiritual adviser and medium. One of the few people I know personally that truly embraces the inner truth of spirit.

Dee was having a rough few days as she watched her “facebook feed” seeing some of the men she had dated and loved that had walked away. One of those feeds hit her especially hard her last boyfriend and lover left her saying he was not ready for a real relationship and was interested in a casual sex kind of thing. A month later he was announcing his engagement to his new girlfriend, as well as introducing her to the world in a picture of them as a couple on facebook. She was a year older than Dee and as my beautiful friend put it.. she was very beautiful had a gorgeous body and was everything that she wanted to be.

As Dee cried and slammed herself for her physical body expressed her lack of worthiness and her feeling of ugliness I listened not believing these words were coming out of her mouth. After an hour of her letting it out and letting the tears fall I shared with her my thoughts. I asked her why she called me of all people, she is basically a social worker and has many friends and support mechanisms. She paused as I expressed my love and my knowing who she was.. Dee knows that truth as I reminded her that the most beautiful woman grows old and the beauty of her physical form fades. She expressed she knew that yet she did not match her inner beauty and her outer beauty were not the same and how she kept getting dumped by men she really wanted to be with because she was overweight and ugly. She expressed that every former boyfriend was married or about to be and she felt so unworthy. I reminded her that such a superficial man and relationship would not make her happy anyway.

The twist.. I asked her what about me? We dated I am quite single are you calling me to make a statement? Her response was priceless.. She said I called you because” I know you love me and you remind me of how beautiful I am. I know many people that would say the right words and wipe my tears. I know on this world only a hand full of people that know their self and only one I could call to see the mirror of me. I knew you would ask me to look inside at myself to see the beauty of who I am.”

I thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two, I chose to share and express sometimes just being who we are is the greatest gift we can share. That smile or that comment can change and effect the life of another that so truly needs a bit of pure from the heart appreciation and love. My smile as broken as it is at the moment was all my friend needed to see the beauty of her own. Thank you for sharing your smiles and your love making our world a better place for all we share it with.
