24 of 27: I Let Good In

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

I sang songs
I love and of love
I danced
Jumped and swayed
God was there
It was good
It was fun

I tasted yummy Eats
And even some
Extra yummy treats
Savored fresh fruit
Crunched crisp salad
God's food is good

I thanked
People in my life
I donated
Of myself and my fruits
I let God in

I encouraged others
In as many ways as possible
I hugged and snuggled
Shook hands and rubbed backs
Gave tips and tricks
God guided my
Hands, arms, heart and words
It was all good

I played
Recreation of
Body, mind, and spirit
With kids
Pets and
Creative moments
It was all good
God was there

I planted
Gardens
Flowers and greens
Beauty
For eyes
And bellies
It was goodness
In, out, and all around

I fed the birds
Even the squirrels
Watched them partake
In God's abundance

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

My pen
My brush
My keyboard
My paper
My blogs
My hands
My heart
My mind
My body

They all tasted
The goodness of god
Every ounce of my being
Has felt
God's healing lightness
Frivolity
Joviality
Exubérant
Contentement
In every cell, tissue, and organ

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

May you know that you let good in and that in doing so, you let God in. May you have an abundance of things you enjoy, which allow you to let God into your life in abundance. May you know and feel the goodness permeate your being. May the goodness remain as long as humanity possible, even when distracted from it.

Om Shanti

14 of 27: Cool Yule

Not one log
A whole pile
Burst into flames
To celebrate
The longest night
Presents piled
Taunt kids
Darts fly
From toy guns
Tic-tac-toe
But no snow
Decorations glisten
Sparkle and twinkle
Kitties snuggle
Watching flames flicker
Mom and dad
Enjoy watching
Children's antics
From safe distances
Santa doesn't fly
For several days yet
Kids know gifts
Showing
Are families'
Treats of affection
Must
Still
Be
Good
So Santa
Will bring the
Magical presents
Of hearts desires
Just a few more days
To chill

Herky’s View finished

I put the finishing touches on the image this morning and framed and hung it. This is progression; start to finish of the project. It took about 3 months working an hour or two at a time. I think twice I had more than 2 hours to invest at once.

You might have noticed a couple of the later stages had plastic over part of the image. I use plain plastic cling-wrap as a protective barrier to prevent smudging my previous work. It works well because the plastic wrap doesn’t pick-up any of the charcoal, so even if it shifts around, my work is still protected.

Final image framed:

“Herky’s View”; charcoal, graphite, and white pencil on handmade cotton-linter paper.

And I hung it on a space of empty clinic wall for now. The recipient is welcome to move it wherever she wants.

May you have good creative moments. May you enjoy your work mostly and find great pleasure in gifting your gifts. May you see your talents as useful and appreciated. May you know you have done a job-well-done. May you see your projects come to wonderful fruition. May you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti
