Legacy 

Life is the incubator of the spirit. A chrysalis nurtured in the body until it is released as a butterfly in the final breath into the blue. The essence, the soul, the spirit, fluttering through eternity on the cerulean wings of memories and visible in the traits passed from one generation to the next. This is our legacy making the difference a cocoon at a time. 

Contemplation

Taking the space to contemplate
A brief moment in time
To stop!
Not in purposeful meditation
But to pause;
To consider;
To think
Amidst the busyness of the day
Ahead the pile of ironing
The burgeoning debate
The critical evaluation of an overdue essay
And mass of backdated reading
Pressing marketing deadlines;
School letters;
Children’s demands
Appointments;
Administration;
The mundane
To stop!
And to ponder
To imagine that if the world stopped
If the last breath left my soul and the final beat pulsed through my heart
So that life itself vanished in this moment
What would my legacy be?
What footprint would I have left in the sand?
What difference would I have made?
And with that thought;
That contemplation;
Momentum returns
With a new urgency

The Best Things Are Worth Waiting For

Do you wanna make a difference?

Do you wanna make a difference?
Do you wanna make a change?
Do you wanna improve others lives?
Do you wanna rearrange
The way things are; the options
The answers and the rest
To offer up solutions and
Provide what’s for the best?

Then focus and determine
How you might then assist
With open heart, transparent will
And selfishness dismissed
And give with a subscription
To honour, love and care
To support others by your deeds
For a better world out there

Anthropic Signatures

Anthropic signatures
Littering history
And biotic clues
Mapping the generations
With traces through time
In a genetic footprint
Leaving indelible tracks
From the then to the now

Legacy

When from this world we do depart
The legacy we leave
Will have no substance in the gold
That’s been amassed; achieved
But rather in the good we’ve done
The difference that we’ve made
The hearts we’ve touched and hands we’ve held
The lives we’ve helped upgrade
For legacies are best preserved
So precious and so true
When unique acts of kindness strike
And outlive me and you
