Merry Earthmas!

My friend Monica came up with this. And I love it. How many of us celebrate and care for the earth? I know I don't do near enough. What if we all recycled at every chance we could? What if we avoided fast food and the tons of containers that get thrown out? What if we picked up the trash we see when we are walking? What if we used sustainable energy sources? What if we made our carbon footprint as small as possible?

If we did all we could for the planet what would our environment be like?

What if we bought locally? What if we used local banks and credit unions instead of big banks? Could we help turn around the banking fiasco in America? Could we pu big corporations out of business if they were irresponsible?

What if we shared with the poor? What if each year we donated to Heifer international? What if each year we donated to Kiva? Could we raise the bar and help people finds the food they need?

Merry Earthmas!

One lone candle shines its light
Holding back total darkness
One more candle joins that fight
To hold the darkness at bay
What if more supplied their lights?
Would the world be changed
To rid from us that darksome night
where hate and despair reign.
So one and all may we lend our might
For strength in numbers we can be
So let our spirits be set alight
And work together for good of all.

Merry Earthmas and Blessed Be!

Looks of annoyance
Grabbing for the last one
Have they lost the meaning?

Another returned
"You have such a wonderful smile"
Season's Greetings

Do we lose our love?
Anger and impatience
Is it contagious?

Do toys really matter?
What does matter?
Things or individuals?

Radiating this for peace
Giving to those in need
Living what is important?


A friend of mine was abandoned by her family when she was in need...

One in need
Abandoned by family
Are there angels?
Little hope
No one to help
Giving help
Holding out a hand
Lifting up
Are they the angels?

For a friend

A friend of mine is in ICU after trying to commit suicide. She is lesbian. Her words speak volumes "I just wish I was straight My Mum and Dad would love me if I were straight."

I wrote this poem in response

Angel's wings 
carrying her spirit to us
words of love
helping her to cope
can love defeat despair?
Only with enough

what does religion teach?
or love?
what would Yeshua say?
What would he do?

A Goddess sheds a tear
A daughter in so much pain
A hand outstretched
take it?
can she find peace in Her?
can she find acceptance?

A Poem for Asherah

A prayer for Asherah

YHWH brings thunder
A quiet voice brings peace

El Shaddai punishes
Shekhinah comforts and forgives

The King turns his back
The Queen of Heaven calls

His priests hate her name
Ever blessed is that name

Goddess of hearth and home
They turn their back to her 

Her daughters lament
Her sons need her touch

She watches from exile
The King is jealous of others

She sends her shalom
YHWH causes lightning to come
