Poetry practice

Still mind helps us to discover ourselves
        What if we find only beauty inside?

Allowing compassion to lead the way
        Yields answers to questions not thought of yet

Tossing a stone into the deep blue lake
        Radical notions with each breath we take

Change does not approach, nor does it vanish
        In this moment, with each breath, I am change

More Iambic practice

Hiding the beauty, hatred divides us
        Creating beauty, leads us out of fear

To be gentle is to be powerful
        Aggression is not the pathway to peace

They tell us the dogs of war must be fed
        This breed and their masters feed on our fear

Morning thoughts

We have chosen that hatred is okay,
        because we are not happy with ourselves
