Standing Where They Once Stood(Sedona) 

Understood by so few

Seen by fewer
A sight so memorable
Ruins they are, but still there
Life from another time standing still

Take a breath of the air they once breathed
Imagine for a moment they stood there
You see what they saw
The landscape still lives
Little has changed as time goes on

Listen to the sounds they once heard
Breezes in the air
Sounds of the running stream
Quiet as though time stopped for a moment
Peaceful where they once listened

Walk the land once theirs
A path worn down with their many steps
Possibly setting foot in their footsteps
You are where they once were
Standing where they once stood


Deciphering The Symbols


Deciphering The Symbols

Looking deep, they are becoming visible
They have always been there
Invisible for so long
Took a while to get there

Lost in the weeds for all these years
Following what you see
Blinded by what’s easy
Such a simple path to follow

Past lives hold the key
Unable to recognize all those doors never opened
Never knew where to look
This is just the beginning

It’s all there if you keep looking
Let them in when the door opens
Save each one
For they will show the way

Enlightenment came late
What took so long
Each has a meaning, so be it
Now is the time to decipher the symbols

Traveling With 25 Souls(Sedona)

From another world
All different, but the same
All with stories to be told
Much to be learned from each

This world is theirs
They’ve been here before
Looking for answers for today
Lost what was before

Return to the earth very briefly
Doesn’t last long
They come back again
Finding new answers to the pains of yesterday

They can see the future
So much to hear
Stories from now and other times
Better pay attention
Could be yours one day

If you haven’t been here before remember where you are
Never know when you might need to return
If you know who you are never forget where you came from
Never know when you might need to return

25 souls traveling through time
Stopped for just a brief moment to recollect lost time
May never be the same
Memories of better days still there

Hope never fades, seems to hang on
With a thread a rope can be made
With a rope the climb back can begin
With each soul as a thread the rope will never fail

For some the climb never ends
Others see the end
For those forever climbing
This soul forever remains a thread in the rope
                                                            - TBH

I Read The Stars To Get Here

I Read The Stars To Get Here

The journey started so long ago, so far away
Few maps to find your way
Over land, on the water
The path not always clear
Easy to stray into harms way
A few battles to fight along the way

Look to the skies for signs
Took time to learn the symbols
Different from day to night
Navigating on the fly
Never sure of the direction
Never sure of the destination

One day it all came together
Persevered through the obstacles
Finally found my way
In the end, not so difficult
I read the stars to get here
                                   - TBH
