A Savage Life Issue

IMG_3110

A storm has been raging

from deep within

a savage life issue

that never seems to end

 

A life issue

causing pain and strife

seems there is no relief

in this life

 

A small light emerges

an intentional life plan in place

slowly makes changes

asking God for grace

 

Each day that passes

the light begins to grow

the savage life issue lessens

the light starts to glow

 

It is over

thanking God for grace

there is no more pain

no more dark place

 

The morning sun is rising

a new day is here

stronger in spirit

grateful God is near

The Savage Wilderness

snow capped mountain alaska

The savage wilderness

on this spring day

cold and wild

as we make our way

 

Snow is melting

plants awake again

beautiful colors emerging

animals exit their den

 

An inhospitable environment

speaks of wonder anew

life begins to thrive

on the spring’s dew

 

The river ice is melting

turning the water blue

canoeing across

creating a path anew

 

Wonder for all to see

as the seasons change

a living planet’s beauty

within our eyes range

 

God provides for us

in this savage land

meeting all our needs

on a planet so grand

Fountain Jangle

renaissance water feature april 1

Beautiful fountain

water flowing down

jangling with change

wishes going round

 

Children make a wish

a penny so shiny

thrown in the water

ripples so tiny

 

Sparkling in the water

will their wish come true

having a great time

dreaming things out of the blue

 

This is such fun

for a small child

looking toward the future

with a big smile

 

Such small things

in a single day

brings happiness

in a small way

 

Listening to dreams

a childhood art

a fountain wishing well

expressing their heart

Jangling Wind Chimes

wind chimes

Wind chimes jangle

happy tunes to hear

wind blowing slowly

pleasing to the ear

 

The morning sun rising

light all around

birds on the feeder

food on the ground

 

My soul is nourished

watching this sight

birds singing to the rhythm

wind raising its height

 

The jangle continues

throughout the day

nature is calling

to all by the way

 

There is life all around

living the new day

singing in harmony

a concert to play

 

The music continues

diverse sounds in the air

happiness is listening

content in my chair

Summer Music Quill : A Poem for Fun

ms gulf coast pier may 9

A sunny afternoon

music on the pier

a quill in hand

writing what I hear

 

The people are happy

singing with the band

a guitar is playing

on water and land

 

Taking life easy

on this summer afternoon

creating stories of life

while listening to some tunes

 

Living intentional

on this fine day

finding happiness now

having found a way

 

Kindness to others

enjoying this view

the water is sparkling

bringing treasures new

 

The music is stopped

band taking a break

my quill is writing

creating a story to take

 

My story is complete

band playing again

joining the people

laughing in the end

Blue Bird Quill

Bluebird Jess

Blue bird

building a nest

loving quills

placed for rest

 

Eggs are laid

babies soon to come

sitting patiently

till the time is done

 

New life emerges

a sight to see

chirping the day long

for a bird to feed

 

The time comes

time to fly away

leaving the nest

making their own way

 

The house is cleaned

a new cycle begins

the house is filled

with eggs again

 

The cycle of life

our journey continues

observing renewal

in each season’s venue

Earth Quill

petrified forest water path 2 april 14

God used the quill

to create the universe

history in the making

verse by verse

 

He created nature

beauty to see

then a caretaker

you and me

 

He gave us adventure

then wonder

a beautiful Earth

to ponder

 

He provided for

all of our needs

it comes in all forms

in the flowers, water, and trees

 

Taking care of Earth

a task we are charged

sharing it with others

instead of living large

 

A quill is used

to write historical things

Earth is our home

a place to spread our wings

Riding the River Rapids

IMG_3227

Adventure in the river

tethered to my canoe

riding through the rapids

not thinking it through

 

It is so much fun

riding down the river run

till I turn over

that was not fun

 

I am alright

trying again

riding the rapids

 let the thrill begin

 

The adventure continues

the water is cool

paddling really fast

am I a fool

 

The river slows down

taking a break

paddle slower now

relaxation to partake

 

One last ride

in this canoe to play

riding the rapids

last adventure for the day

 

The sun is setting

the day is at an end

more adventures to come

as a new day begins

Tethered Through Life

IMG_3213

Tethered through life

happy as can be

married in union

love for you and me

 

Loving nature

sleeping under the stars

God has provided grace

we have come so far

 

The sun rises

billowing clouds in the sky

colors in the mountains

beauty for the eye

 

We meditate

on this beautiful day

counting our blessings

observing nature’s way

 

Our souls are nourished

adventure is new

enjoying our time together

in nature with a view

 

The light shines bright

our journey continues

experiencing life together

in each season’s venue

Life in Beautiful Old Cabins

old family cabin mississippi

picture courtesy of William Pierce

Beautiful old cabins

with swings on the porch

people laughing and drinking

keeping the fire with a torch

 

In the kitchen sweeping

cabins small and sweet

women with children

laughing with clean feet

 

Men working hard

with land to sow

feeding their families

with no money to owe

 

God blessed them

with a simpler time

love and laughter prevail

when life was in its prime

 

Our communities are tethered

together we are one

loving one another

each day having fun
