Walk on fire

I stood and watched
the fire burn

so many of us
standing around her

in a circle
with our intention of love

burning the logs down
to red hot coals

"Earth my body...
Water my blood...
Air my breath...
Fire my Spirit..."

we watched her respond in color...

so soft and gentle she became
preparing us for our walk...

red hot coals
menacingly broiling
poured along a 15 foot strip of sand
a pile of snow stands at the end

excited I was
my toes nearly frozen
eager to be near the heat
it was 10 degrees

"My body will do
whatever it takes
to let me walk on fire."

"My body will do
whatever it takes
to let me walk on fire..."

what fear?
no fear...
I knew why I was there

Trust! Trust! Trust!
here to learn to TRUST

and what better way to learn
than to walk on fire and not get burned?

I trust you with my life

I trust you with my secrets


My trust you on everything

That is mine physically and otherwise


Trust is everything to a woman

Trust is everything to me


Trust is everything and nothing at all

Is it isn’t given as well as received

No One To Trust

No one to trust, I know, you've heard this before
they break your heart, then they're out the door
until desperation comes, turning your brain to off
thinking to take him back, again making yourself the dwarf

Even then it does not work, saying this time will be the last
tomorrow again comes, turning you into a depressed outcast
now that you've come full circle, there is nothing more to do
stuck again blowing your nose, with that crying anew

Finally laying down to sleep, committing that soul to keep
you dream of better times, as you count those sheep
why repeat this mistake, learn this lesson once and for all
you can't build a relationship, by picking a guy up in the mall

Your knight in shining armor, oh where can he possibly be
 maybe he got stuck in the mud, and him you just can't see
Knights are found in dreams, and dreams live only by night
if you don't grow up, your situation will always remain blight

Real trust does reside, in only one place that's sound
it can't be bought, and it will never be found
neither swims in the river, nor flies in the air
existing in a true friend, that knows how to care

This wonderful world, what a big place
so many people, and so much space
but to search in whom to trust, your time would be a waste
unless you first focus your attention, praying for G-d's grace

The Looking Glass

Just a thought!

The Looking Glass

Peeking through The Looking Glass
To forge the distant miles
Seeking hope and sharing dreams
We trade our thoughts and smiles
Some are very dear to us
We chance to call them friend
A special voice within our heart
We put our trust in them
In search of love or just a friend
Taking stock in all their faces
Our time is spent within the glass
To fill the empty spaces
Be thoughtful, true and honest
With your daily search endeavor
And you might find, deep in the glass
A friend, who will last forever

by Barry Anderson
