To Make a Difference. . . .

image-1 (2)


We come to help make better.  We come because we hope to make a difference, however small.  The small things, when carried out with concern, can involve a lifetime or many lifetimes.  You cannot change the course of genetic evolution.  It takes its time.  Engineering may be able to code the dna but the emotional evolution  must take its time and in its own time, will either be for the common good or common ill.  We can hope that what transpires will be for the common good.  We  hope that with persistence the individual can decode and overcome what the ancients in their frustration could not bring to pass.  What we hope is that we do not add to the pot of frustrations so that the oncoming generation will have an added burden.


Toward Greater Life

The heart searches parameters
for openings onto worlds
not torn by those intent
on limiting knowledge. .  .

always searching
for those to willingly embrace
the differences challenging
the hesitant heart. . .

We look toward the union
of heart and mind
with the litigious veins
of knowledge, pushing like sludge
thickly through rock. . .

eager to consign edges
toward greater life. . .
knowing always the
least demanding would be
the most sought for.
Even the tardy would give
evolution a jump start.

Never insulting the slower envoy,
always grateful for the god participants,
the larger reality scoops forever
the narrow focus. . .

giving eternity’s starters new life and hope.
