Breaks the spell of Writers Block
Staring at a blank page is like staring into a snowfield. The snow, untouched by civilization and unmarked by living creatures, blinds you for a few minutes, it glistens reflecting subtle shades of pure white and rainbows at odd angles. If you stare at the snow too long, you get lost in the interplay of light and shadow.

As the day wears on, you become awestruck at the beauty of the snow's perfection. You marvel at the way an oak tree cast its ebony shadow across the pure white snow. You watch the tree's shadow change, grow and shrink, as Earth turns and the sun moves from morning to evening. If you stand out in the snow too long without moving, you risk snow bite or freezing.

If you are fortunate, a red fox will walk across your line of sight. The fox will leave his footprints written in the snowfield. As you watch the fox move, the spell holding you in one spot staring at the snow is broken. You are free to go inside out of the cold and out of danger.


I must say,
writing 500 words a day
isn't difficult,
unless I'm attempting to write
on a single subject.

On Monday, October 28, 2013, I began posting my weekly goals at "Weekly Goals. On Tuesday, October 29, 2013 I began keeping track of may accomplished goals in this journal.

"O SON OF BEING! Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning;
for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds."
Bah'u'll'h The Hidden Words of Bah'u'll'h, Part I.'From the Arabic, #31, page 11

'Heinlein's Rules for Writers

         Rule One: You Must Write
         Rule Two: Finish What Your Start
         Rule Three: You Must Refrain From Rewriting, Except to Editorial Order
         Rule Four: You Must Put Your Story on the Market
         Rule Five: You Must Keep it on the Market until it has Sold'

Robert A. Heinlein

It is enjoined upon every one of you to engage in some form of occupation, such as crafts, trades and the like. We have graciously exalted your engagement in such work to the rank of worship unto God, the True One. Ponder ye in your hearts the grace and the blessings of God and render thanks unto Him at eventide and at dawn. Waste not your time in idleness and sloth. Occupy yourselves with that which profiteth yourselves and others. Thus hath it been decreed in this Tablet from whose horizon the day-star of wisdom and utterance shineth resplendent.
Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah Revealed After the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Pages 21-29: gr 32

I changed the way I did entries in this book several times. Beginning on March 21, 2018 the entries will cover the topics of spiritual, inspirational, and religions. However, the genres it will be under are Women's, Inspirational, and Spiritual with a tag of Religious.

Feast of Questions

Earth's Pain1

Listen carefully
You can hear Earth’s scream echoing
Off the tops of mountains.

Listen to her agony
As mountain tops are removed
To feed corporation’s bottom line.

Listen as her pain
Reverberates
Through atmosphere and mantel,
As her children
Obedient to the gods of greed
Behead her mountains
And fracture her stone hard bones.

Gratitude List for 1 Masa’il

Ascension of `Abdu'l-Bahá

"We testify that when [Christ] came into the world, He shed the splendor of His glory upon all created things ... Blessed is the man who, with a face beaming with Light, hat turned toward Him."
Baha'u'llah9

I found the above quote in a pamphlet I found, while going through a suitcase I brought with me when I moved from the house on Bracken Avenue. The suitcase has been with me for the last two moves, without me going through it. I went through the suitcase today because I needed it to put my clothes in when I move two the new apartment. That quote was on the front of the pamphlel "The Glory of Christ: A Baha'i Testimony", which was published by Stone Haven Press in 1997. I'm not sure when I got the pamphlet, perhaps the year it was published. I'm going to read it again, because I thin it will inspire me to write a poem about His Holiness Christ.

Gratitude List for 6 Qawl

Feast of Qawl

"In these times thanksgiving for the bounty of the Merciful One consists in the illumination of the heart and the feeling of the soul. This is the reality of thanksgiving. But, although offering thanks through speech or writings is approvable, yet, in comparison with that, it is but unreal, for the foundation is spiritual feelings and merciful sentiments."
Abdu'l-Baha11

is spiritual gratitude
and praise to the Almighty.

Dividing the day into small slots,
Plan precisely every activity,
Leaving ourselves no time for thought,
No time notice the beauty of nature,
No time to feel our fellowman's woes.

Is Hope18

Is hope,
as some have said,
a desire for the tangible reality
of an item?

Is hope
a crystal goblet
reflecting the light of faith?

Is hope
a glass chain
attached to matters plain?

Is hope,
as others have said,
a creature with feathers
that lays snuggled in the heart?

One instrumental after another
Nested between conversation breaks,
Holds my place in the queue.

One instrumental after another
Leaves me to languish in limbo,
Dallying on a frigid landscape.

Ink of Poetry20

Tears of love;
the distilled essence of honeysuckles and lemons;
hemoglobin from the from the heart of existence;
attar of bitter herb;
nectar stomped,
by the bare feet of attachment,
from the blossoms and thorn of the rose of desire;
sap from the Tree of Life;
and the ink of Divine inspiration.

This is the ink of poetry;
this is natural medicine;
it passes through the spirit-mind barrier
to heal the soul's chemistry.
