Take a Moment: Poetry and Art by Rich Okun

Vein of Kindness

After all this time,

he understood.

That vein of kindness

running through his life,

was a grace.

However else

it turned, his inner world

is eternal sacred space.


gently rocking

the sleeper awake.

             Made aware of the folly,              

he rejects the fodder 

and the ignores the fake.

And now,

the signs he sees

have changed

in order and meaning..

They do not

precede and portend

what’s yet to come,

but rather, they follow

and evidence their

arrival from,

a spiritually-sensed place,

where the mind


in surrendered embrace,

all that  the heart

gives and receives.



Rich spent his professional life in various corporate positions. He was the youngest member of the Art Students’ League of New York, and after many years and diverse careers, he now devotes his focus to creative passions. Having lived a lifetime studying many different ancient spiritual belief systems, he was inspired to action when a new little puppy, Maya came to town. He has developed a unique format of quote/poem/illustration using Maya as his muse specifically to help children of all ages understand spiritual and moral issues and to closen the relationships within the family. He is taking storytelling to the next level and these daily meditations can also awaken the child in you.. Rich lives in Connecticut with his wonderful wife, four cats, lots of other animals and Maya.
Rich has 4 published books which he authored and illustrated you can find them all at or the Books tab on his site
