Preparing to Stand

Updated on February 28, 2012


A man forgotten

this autumn to Recompense

balance is wanting


Time ends gracefully

white robes unspotted gather

A Master to greet.


Tilling earth before

Fire consuming, rocks tossed

current plants trimming.


faults finding, cures found

replacing nature with not

God sealing works change


light in life basic

awareness to harness self

world becomes one with


Words spoke honestly

intent understood fully

promise made and keptĀ 

Sealing Power

Water turned fire

actions become patterns now

Patterns become nature, eight

      Thank you Maven for your kind care and stopping by which enriches my writing and gives me food for thought to write again. I ventured, by the way, partly because I saw your work and after seeking an explanation of the technique I thought it to be an original way to express a few thoughts.

      lol and somehow I put them together on the same page on purpose as they tell pieces to a while thought... in pieces for easier digestion or more obfuscation.

      @ Kathryn and @ Vladimir I am glad you enjoyed these. It is kind of hard to tell from the rating of this article but as I enjoyed writing them too that hardly matters. I take my success from your lips to my heart.
