" Mark My Words Well "



You always inspire with your thoughtful words

created and designed to bring much cheer

you never hurt intentionally with your verse

knowing full well it can have profound repercussions

for those concerned or affected by your discourse

no diatribes or vents do you communicate

everything you do envisages the end result

gentleness and calm issues from your pen

I admire your confidence and firm beliefs

your love of nature and the universe

shows your beautiful spiritual self

weaving and waxing on affairs of the heart

having the courage of your convictions

you illuminate the path for others

so that they can thrive

the lamp of your knowledge

is sitting on the table for others to see

convention and formality you push aside

letting the eternal and evolving truth appear

my heart is gladdened by your esoteric outpourings

a master wordsmith, a talented artist

you flow and harmonize in perfection

with consummate precision and watchful eye

your finger on the pulse of current flow

always seeking to glean more wisdom

you keep an open and receptive mind

assured and steadfast in your own abilities

realising we can always learn and improvise

displaying adaptibility par excellence

completely governed by the architect of life

your palette is adorned with glorious technicolor

as your daily offering leaves me awestruck

Each human is born with a capacity to win at life. Each person has a unique way of seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and thinking. A creative being is a productive person, a winner.

There is a story of a rabbi on his death bed. He is asked if he is ready for the world to come. The rabbi says yes. After all, he will not be asked "Why were you not Moses?" He will only be asked, "Why were you not yourself?"

Authentic persons --- winners --- do not dedicate their lives to a concept of what they imagine they should be. Rather, they are themselves and as such do not use their energy putting on a performance, maintaining pretence, or manipulating others. Winners do not need to hide behind a mask. They throw off self-images of inferiority or superiority. They are not afraid to use their knowledge or do their own thinking. Winners don't play helpless. They assume responsibility for their own lives. Winners know their feelings and are unafraid of them. They can be spontaneous. They have a zest for life and they enjoy their own accomplishments and those of others as well. They are not afraid to go after what they want, despite their detractors. They care about the world and the people in it. They are compassionate and commited to improving the quality of life and their self-image is not one of a powerless individual. They are their own bosses and they know it! A wonderful tribute to someone out there who deserves and appreciates it, Peter.

As is your poetic palette, Peter. And I truly wish that we could all learn 'to learn;' I think the world would then be a much better place.
