A True Loving Mississippi Story

One child 2 years old is lost

without a shoe in the street

traffic flowing

not missing a beat

Seen by one

running to save a life

another stopped to help

amid all the strife

A third person stops

calling the police

child standing with safe haven

sighing with relief

Another person stops

as we search for the child’s home

wanting to know how to help

the child is not alone

The police come

helping to figure it out

the child is calm

feeling safe and does not pout

Siblings arrive

rejoicing running up the street

the child had accidentally gotten out

following a dog with bare feet

People helping each other

not a thought given to religion or race

helping an innocent child

experience love instead of hate

Sanctify: The Beauty of a New Day

colorado park river

Walking through the valley

seeking to sanctify my soul

breathing in deeply

smells from times of old

 

Smells of morning dew

whispers from the rain

mirror images in the river

cleansing away the pain

 

New life emerges

there is a new nature show

flowers surrounding me

blooms begin to glow

 

Sweet serenity

life begins anew

slowly cleansing my soul

now from a different point of view

 

Love envelopes me

stronger from the storm

stretching out to enjoy the day

the journey is full and transformed

Comfort: Voices From Beyond

tea

I heard your voice today

from Heaven so far away

comforting me still

as my faith begins to sway

 

Tears flowing 

down my cheeks

missing you

all these weeks

 

A kind word

gift of a book

of words I need to hear

smile with your look

 

Knowing you 

are not far away

sending a message of love

faith has a way

 

Time will pass

love will never die

you are always with me

love does not lie

 

Praying for you everyday

God’s love carries me through

our separation is temporary

love death can never undo

Spring: Morning on the Bayou

IMG_4993

Across the horizon

a new day begins

nature joyfully singing

the fog is thin

 

Kayaking along the bay

a fish jumps high

thrashing around

with others nearby

 

Squirrels in the trees

leaving a nest

jumping around

running without rest

 

Sea gulls in the air

playing aerial games

enjoying the wind

no manuever is the same

 

Calmness abound

renewal of the soul

sun sparkles on the water

new tales to be told

 

Stopping now

time to grab a bite

feeling blessed this morning

everything is just right

Spring is a new beginning

apple bloom 2 april 14

Spring is a new beginning

pollen in the air

blooms expressing new life

colors with a flair

 

Renewal expressed

in the sun and clouds

warmth across the land

thunderstorms are loud

 

The soul rejoices

at the return of life

promises of a new beginning

adventure without strife

 

Love returns

bees begin to dance

birds singing songs

life in a trance

 

Time of renewal

joy in things present and past

a smile on my face

peace has returned at last

Love Never Dies

cypress swamp from left side march 31

Walking down the bridge

I feel you by my side

the wind in my hair

like a natural high

 

Though I am alone

you are in the trees and sky

your love is everywhere

embracing me from up high

 

A smooth reflection

wind whispering in the trees

your warm presence

a comfort to me

 

Time has passed

since you were here

called to Heaven above

you are still near

 

Love never dies

it continues to live

encouraging me to go on

your spirit continues to give

 

Crossing this bridge

am never alone

admiring the beauty

till I am called home

Through the Mirror of Time

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas! A time of sadness for me that is comforted by the Heavenly Light.

bill and debbie wedding pic

 

Through the mirror of time

lies memories of past

a day of happiness

meant to last

 

Dreams from long ago

a couple beaming with bliss

a Christmas wedding

straight from Santa’s list

 

Blessings from the Light

a gift to the world

a tiny cry of hope

emotions in a twirl

 

Happiness reigns

till the end of time

a spiritual connection

a Heavenly bind

 

On this Christmas

celebrate the Light

know pure love

is in sight

Sad Announcement

cropped-white-flowers-at-ms-art-museum-april-20

 

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my husband William Pierce. As many of you know he was the author of the blog site Walk with God. He was the most kind, loving, generous man that I have ever known. Prayers are appreciated during this most difficult time. Thank you.

Hope For Friends Filled With Pain

Clouds 1

 

This has been a sad week for a few friends of mine. They have lost children to suicide.  This poem is an attempt to let them know that we care and wish to mushroom love around them.

 

I feel your sadness

intertwined with pain

loved ones who have left

there is no gain

 

So young

filled with pain of their own

not knowing what to do

now they are gone

 

Lost communication

trials till the end

each expressing  pain

trying hard not to give in

 

Death won this round

leaving sadness in its wake

families are crying

some are beginning to shake

 

There is hope

as friends and family gather round

knowing they will be together

when the veil is unbound

 

God grants us grace

to continue to live on

He holds our departed loved ones close

protecting their souls from harm

 

One glorious day

we will hold each other again

in God’s mighty kingdom

where pain and suffering will never win

Composing a Musical Meditation

piano

Chaos or organization

musical notes floating through my head

trying to compose a tune

which way am I being led

 

Whole notes or half notes

is it a symphony or a simple tune

music in my mind

chaotic and beginning to boom

 

Copying on paper

measures coming together

organizing my thoughts

notes beginning to tether

 

The music is simple

a thoughtful melody

something for meditation

filled with glee

 

Music on the piano

chaotic or slow

expressing my emotions

the highs and the lows

 

Composing simple music

nourishment for my soul

meditation this morning

writing on a musical scroll
