55th DIMENSION: HELP!

WRITE IT IN 55-WORDS, THEN LET G-MAN KNOW

There is another way of looking at the world
(Which does not always twist, whirl, unfurled)
A place billions call home
Crowded in places like
Reykjavik or Rome.
During evening, on my bike
--Its fenders pearled--
I am being left quite alone.
And so to myself silently I say
Anyone been helped by God and me today?

  1. That was amazing, Steve. Oh, and by the way, you have helped me, today. I thank you for that.

  2. So in momenst of being alone you wonder if you have helped anyone? This is truly an admirable thought and wonderful poem. If only many more could think that way. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Amazingly enough it's not up to me to judge whether I've been useful, if I pray that beautiful God given prayer of service and submission I'm assured that God will use all things (good and bad) for his greater purpose right? So I can relax and take it easy knowing that God will bring me to the understanding of how much he loves and appreciates my sacrifice to his will, good and bad. And that is the best thought of all :) It brings joy and peace!

    :) MUCH LOVE my friend!

  10. JANICE!
    Any time you can smile--and if I had something to do with it--well, that's OKAY with me! PEACE!

    MOONDUSTWRITER!
    Yep, with God's help, or are we helping God in this case? Does God really need our help? Anyway, making that difference is what counts! Thanks!

    ANDREW!
    That first line--now that you mention it--IS an appropriate lesson for just about all of us. Glad to see you, Andrew! PEACE!

    MONKEY MAN!
    In high school I had a Chinese math teacher who said to me--after every test--"Flunky, Funky!"

    TESS KINCAID!
    "Our whole attitude and outlook on life will change." One of the promises in AA Big Book.

    BRIAN!
    A compliment (about writing) from you to me means more than--well, "free HERSHEY BARS for a year"! Thank you!

    JESSIE!
    You are You, girl. There is none like you, and I mean that in only a good way. Your AA program and life philosophy, inseparable as they are, shine all the way to heaven. Right now, I am relaxing and taking it easy--and not just because it IS bed time--grin!

    POETS UNITED!
    I don't believe we've met, but you sound like a 'group'. And I'll zip over there tomorrow, because "inquiring minds want to KNOW"!

    Thank you for your lovely comment, and visit.
    PEACE!

    JUST JANE!
    Cannot imagine how I've helped you, but sometimes just a loose word or thought brings its own message to another. Thank for being here! And PEACE for you. Good luck!

    Thank you for coming into the 'dimension' and for such a pleasantly supportive comment.
    PEACE!

    G-MAN!
    Same ass-kicking guy, I note. Glad to drop in here and be so nicely received. Thanks!

  12. This is quite lovely and a wonderful perspective, too!

  13. Love the look of this..and the enigmatic point..we take God for granted, within our own system, but I like the fact that you too will help...thanks!!

  14. With a pearled fender you would be right out in front ! and yes of course we've done some good with HP, we're here S&C today, settin' an example,
    maybe-hopefully- Thanks!

  15. Here's an enigma;we are created
    to do good works, which God already has prepared for us.
    We need not look or worry, we only need to go, even if we don't know where the road is leading.
    We have a need to do good deeds, and somebody out there needs us. It's a mutual need.
    Like in Tolstoy's story about the cobbler.

    Eph 2: 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

  16. Maybe you could give someone a ride on the handlebars. Nice, thoughtful 55, Steve E!

  19. RAVEN!
    I wish that *I* were like this every waking moment. Thanks for the words.

    ERIC!
    Sorry, no handlebar riding. A comfortable seat with nice foot room is right behind the 'driver'...me! But, hold on tight, 'cause here we GOOOOOOOoooooooooooo!

    FELISOL!
    Only YOU and JESS (above, Mistress of Mischief) got that picture, which certainly IS another (better!) way of looking at the world, and ourselves, and life, and death. Thanks once again, for your deep spiritual insight into these matters!
    PEACE!

    IZZY!
    Yep! That's what we're about. Setting the example, and filling in the vacuum with deeds. Helping others, sometimes just by listening, is helpful ALWAYS to me. As others have said, whatever, wherever God decides and leads.
    PEACE to you also. And thanks!

    LYN!
    During the course of any/every single day, I lose track and take tings for granted. Not realizing that for every gift I'm given, I must give away--in order to keep it. "THE enigma"!

    BELINDA MUNOZ!
    For being here I thank you, And for your thoughtful (nice!) comment, I thank you!
    PEACE!

  20. LINDA!
    Your comment must have arrived while I was writing responses. WOW! You have an abundance of sweet words every time you visit here, but THESE thought-words I cannot respond, except to say, THANK YOU"! I sure hope your pain is letting up on you a bit--maybe if I stop writing about it, you'll feel better. (I just urge others who might read about it to pray with us all...for you!
    PEACE!

  21. Hey Steve, this is awesome. You do have a way with words. I believe you ought to start writing poems that you can someday publish.

    Love this post and the pic as well!

    Blessings

  22. Hello, Steve! You move around! Your poem has a wonderful rhythm and you hooked me on that second line. You gave me a smile just by finding you again.
    Free advice coming out of the woodwork!

  23. Such a meaninful 55! I really hope, as I pass through this life, I make a difference to those I encounter. Of course, I know I can't have an impact on everyone but, surely, I might ease someone's load a little and, God forbid, I don't make things worse.

  24. RNSANE!
    I believe that we all make an impact on MANY more than we'd ever suspect! That certainly means YOU!
    Glad to 'see' you!

    LIDJ!
    AWWWW, Lidj. Your kind words are SO welcome. Thank you. Re: a book of poetry? NOT! I write for my enjoyment, not for anyone's profit. And NEVER have I given thought that my writing has any merit above the enjoyment of doing it!
    PEACE to Half-Moon Rising and Half-Moon Risen!

    ENCHANTED OAK!
    Cannot begin to TELL you how glad I was to see your name among the comments, Chris A. And that was MY biggest smile of today. And you commented so sweetly. Thank you.

    MAMA ZEN!

    YOU are too good--for even traveling from India to my blog. Thank you. Also to say, I am enrolled in a class on Buddha, and find it has become a serious matter for me. I'll be blogging each Monday night or Tuesday (Tues or Wednesday for you!) on my impressions of the lessons, and what I (think) I'm learning. Same place!

    Just got the great Egyptian news, Mubarak is 'out'...more about that we will all read soon.
    PEACE!
