Beauty Inside and Out

penguins in las vegas 2

Penguins strutting around

so natty and smart

waddling in front of the visitors

like living works of art

 

Coats like a tuxedo

dressed in black and white

anxious for the guests to provide fish

oh what a site

 

God created the penguins

placed them in dapper attire

never having to worry

about fulfilling clothing desire

 

People should be so content

in the skin that they wear

God made everyone beautiful

kind souls to bare

 

Inner beauty is to be found

for all to see

showing kindness to all

is the key for you and me

Old Bridges

old bridge picture of daddy's

Old bridges

solid as they can be

speaking to the past

in the world surrounding me

 

The generations past

tell stories to one another

hoping not to repeat

the mistakes of the other

 

Solid and moving each way

the generations learn

to work together

as a uniform way to earn

 

Love is the stronghold

that holds us together

we must never forget

lest we untether

 

The days pass as we are young

Excited at how the day unfolds

But like the old bridges

One day our stories will be retold

The Serenity of Waterfalls

smokey mountain waterfall 2

Waterfalls are beautiful

They carry water away

Water flows into the river

And rushes down the way

 

Waterfalls contain energy

To power things far and wide

People canoe over them

Swaying side to side

 

Life is like a waterfall

Sliding over the cliff

Some people are angry

And get into a tiff

 

Other people are happy

Sliding over the fall

Never giving up hope

Of having it all

 

Waterfalls are calming to the soul

Listening to the rushing clatter

Sitting in meditation

Where nothing in the world seems to matter

Renewal and Peace

snow capped mountain alaska

In the distance a snow capped mountain

Surrounded by a lake of blue

Renewal is coming

The spring is new

The wildlife awoke

From a long winter’s sleep

Peace in the valley

Beginning so unique

God’s promise to us

If we will hear

Working together

Renewal and peace are near

Imagine: Praying for London

ne

mom rose garden april 1

Imagine if you can

A world filled with love

A world filled with kindness

Imagine a world with no evil

A world without hate

Where people love one another

A world where people communicate

God loves us all

Of that there is no doubt

Pray for all who suffer tonight

Because of another person’s hate

**Praying for London tonight

Imagine If You Can

DocFile (2)

Imagine if you can

Living in a foreign land

Living with God

In total content

Imagine life in a canyon wide

Where you can fly

See from up high

Where only beauty exists

Only peace and calm

Do not resist

Rest in God’s arms

From way up high

From morning to nigh
