How can I forget YOU… even for a second!?



Oh Universal Intelligence… the ubiquitous force behind ALL that is… how YOU mesmerize me with your wonderous and mysterious appearances… so much so that I often forget about YOU, the Artist, the Creator, the Master Sculptor, the most Supreme.

I see the bird, but I forget YOU, the bird’s creator. I effortlessly watch and listen as this form, this body, seemly moves, talks and goes about its endless tasks, and yet for YOU I have barely a thought to spare. For YOU, who have freely given me literally everything, I have no time to show my love and gratitude. Please forgive my selfishness Father.

are you there?

karen draper ~ writer


reach for me

out beyond perception

in a field of generosity

where old souls and new souls

gather together, amongst

threads of commonality 

are you there?

i’ll wait for you

with a knowing heart

are you there?

extraneous moments cloud my view

perched on righteous indignation

are you there?

whispers of hope infiltrate the air

like oxygen to a breathless being

ahh – you are there

in the midst

of that which can’t be seen,

only grasped, felt, then

released into the universe

on wings of enlightenment
