Overview

Poetic Reflections and Songs of an Awakening Hu-man, along with their Prose Inspirational Backgrounds, offering Reading Pleasure, Food For Thought, and Space for the Reader's Own Reflections.

"You see, in reality, we are each an important and colorful piece of the "picturesquely diversified" kaleidoscope of life, and the Big Picture is incomplete until we all contribute our own unique piece!"

Since creativity is contagious, The Poet shares thoughts, and poems, and songs in the hope that these moments together will prime the pump of the Reader's own innate Creative Genius! As The Poet states, "We really need each other, and the encouragement that our associations bring. So, as you read the everyday life's experiences that are shared, and your imagination begins to take flight, you can immediately use the space that has been provided in this book at the end of every "Reflection" to record your own "Reflections" and ideas, and creative musings. Everyone has a piece of this life's puzzle, and we need them all, YOURS AND MINE. The picture will not be complete until we have all contributed our part. Together we can fill our world with the order and beauty that we are all craving."

When facing life's everyday experiences The Heart of The Poet looks at these pivotal awakening points, pauses to ponder their profound meanings, and then creates a poem, and often a song, to develop a deeper expression of the new truths learned. Then, as we each turn the kaleidoscope of our own individual special life we are enabled to reflect upon the whole picture of past, present, and future experiences that make up the many facets of the diamond that we each are. The world hungrily awaits the unique creative endeavors that come out of those inspired reflections!!!

"Kaleidoscope" is a beautiful word to describe the experience and purpose of this book!The ever-changing world of the Kaleidoscope has been defined as, "an optical tube in which bits of glass and beads are shown in changing symmetrical forms by reflection in two or more mirrors as the tube is turned; anything that shifts continually: picturesquely diversified; and, observation of beautiful forms. The Reader is enriched by The Poet's experience, encouraged to reflect upon the twists and turns of everyday life, and to express the new truths learned from life's experiences in their own artistic creative expressions.

"We live in an exciting kaleidoscopic age of discovery (both personal and collective) and technological advancement, and the pruning of those two branches of our life's tree will determine the quality of the fruit that we bear. It has been my experience, and my observation, that, as wonderful as the technological world is, it may be costing us our Hu-man-ness!" The Reader is encouraged to "Come apart before you come apart", because we Hu-mans have a basic need to pause, reflect, and connect to our real "Home" center. The Poet encourages us to give ourselves time to awaken to our own creative possibilities.

"This is a Poetry book. It is not a scientific dissertation. Poets want to provoke, educate, awaken, feel, think, inspire, and reflect, so that their personal awakenings will help to encourage a universal awakening. ..., in the hope that we will all grow together into the awesome Promises and Possibilities that We ARE!"

We are living in an exciting age of "Aha!" moments, so, as you turn the kaleidoscope of your life, I invite you to use the space provided in this book as a sounding-board for your own personal awakenings in your life, in your quest toward finding and fulfilling your life's purpose, and in your spiritual walk.

"Welcome to my world!"
