Poem: A Space Called Spirit

The breeze plays upon the leaves
like keys of a piano…
welcome relief
for a tree
drenched with sunlight.
Notes that bear no concern
and that time can never capture
travel through the forest
and are only heard
by those
who are free.

Even if only for a moment,
can you feel how it waits
for you?
Do you know how many years
silence waits to be found?
The moment of arrival is always there…
then what does it mean,
when you must expend the labor
of years?
Dressed in white
shining bright…
at this altar, who awaits
Who can it be, but you,
waiting for you-as always.

You must hold on tightly.
The palm of the heart
and personality
must warm one another…
the fingers must curl round
and the in between space
is called spirit.

A true life can only exist
within that space.

    I love ALL YOUR WORK.
    new england… I vote New England for your next destination. The seasons are fabulous……There’s nothing like it. The oceans are great. NH or Maine Would be my pick. You are a total and complete Inspiration to any and ALL THE lives you touch. ESPECIALLY YOUR KIDS. I wish you the very best in your journey onto the rest ‘ BEST ‘ of your life with your children. They deserve to be happy.middle school and hi school.can make or break a child.
    I would like to extend a very special Thank u for finding it in your heart to do something about making your children’s lives better than what we had. I honestly feel that the world would be a MUCH better please I’d more.& more kids were home schooled.

    The mind is a terrible thing to waste
    & public schools Do just that.

    If I had children I would do everything in every fiber of my being to make home schooling happen.
    You are such an inspiration with all that u are and do.
    May the sunlight of the spirit warm you and assist u & yours in your latest and greatest endeavor.

    I so respect you.
    Kudos to you!!!!
