To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the Palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

matin

matin

There will be times when you will be in the field without a camera.
And, you will see the most glorious sunset or the most beautiful scene that you have ever witnessed. Don't be bitter because you can't record it.
Sit down, drink it in, and enjoy it for what it is!

se calmer

se calmer

I walk on space,
On air so thin
I fear to fall.

Dear God forgive me
For my fear to love
For being so small
In a world so big
Forgive me for not wanting pain
For seeing it first before joy

I know I shouldn’t look first,
At how easily I bruise
Or harden my shell to outside touch,
Or hide within my self,
Or stare with dead eyes

Forgive my fear
Of reaching out over empty spaces,
For taking all the love you give
And giving nothing in turn

When next I shy, nudge me to try
When next I sigh, nudge me to smile
When next love needs, steady my feet
That I may be here,
To brave my fear.

sans répit

sans répit

You have to be always drunk. That's all there is to it—it's the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you: "It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish."

imagine that

imagine that

We wait all these years to find someone who understands us, 
I thought, someone who accepts us as we are, 
someone with wizards power to melt stone to sunlight, 
who can bring us happiness in spite of trials, 
who can face our dragons in the night, 
who can transform us into the soul we choose to be. 
Just yesterday I found that magical Someone is the face we see in the mirror: It's us and our homemade masks.

All these years and at last we meet.

Imagine that.

reverie

if i wrote a note to God

if i wrote a note to God...

If I wrote a note to God
I would speak whats in my soul
I’d ask for all the hate to be swept away
For love to overflow

If I wrote a note to God
I’d pour my heart out on each page
I’d ask for war to end
For peace to mend this world
I’d say, I’d say, I’d say

Give us the strength to make it through
Help us find love cause love is over due
And it seems like so much is goin wrong
On this road…… we’re on

let's sit and talk awhile

let's sit and talk awhile

The Point of Porches is two-fold
to hear and to be heard
We sit and talk and rock away
the hours with each word

And in the quiet moments
as dusk slides into dark
the crickets chirp the evening song
we hear a far off lark.

There's nothing more serene
than porches shared with friends
in quiet conversations
no beginnings and no ends

So join us on the porch
kick off your shoes and smile
we're so glad you're here with us
Let's sit and talk awhile.

singing my song again

singing my song again...

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.

here and now

here and now
You and I may never be the perfect pair,
The kind most people dream themselves to be,
Just as long as you and I are both aware,
That life is what we make it to be.
Then we won't care what others have to say
Our love will guide us and show the way...

bared

If I had my life to live over again, 
I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. 
I would go to more dance; I would ride more merry-go-rounds. 
I would pick more daisies.

history

Intramuros

A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, 
when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, 
and when the sound of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.

Not merely an absence of noise, 
Real Silence begins when a reasonable being 
withdraws from the noise in order to find peace 
and order in his inner sanctuary.

raindrops keep falling on my head

raindrops keep falling on my head

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

I am but a traveler, in most every way

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
