Giddy: A Moonlit Night

Dancing in the moonlight

giddy as can be

somewhat in a trance

a whole new world to see

 

Rain coming down

sweet to my lips

splashing around in the water

embracing the drips

 

Light from the moon

awareness begin to grow

in harmony with nature

creates a brief shadow

 

In the midst of the wind

an owl begins to hoot

sending out messages

frogs follow suit

 

Rain is gone

sky is clear

stars in the sky

some are near

 

A beautiful night

feeling quite free

grateful to be alive

bending to my knee

 

Thanking God 

for the blessings of this night

alone in the darkness

everything is alright

Horror: Feeling of Being Trapped

Looking into the sky

the dome came down

searching for answers

no one around

 

Enclosed in a world

with no birds and bees

the sights and smells were awful

so much death to see

 

The separation

the horror of being alone

someone help me

the feeling of a drone

 

Finding a lake

getting into a boat

storms and waves surround me

fear of being smote

 

Suddenly comes a voice

that calms the storm

He gets into the boat with me

my spirit is now warm

 

The dome lifts

my faith is restored

birds and bees return

I was never ignored

 

Living in the light

gone are the disguises

the storm has passed

a new day arises

A Summer Day Hiking Dream

Sun beating down

a hot summer day

longing for cool comfort

along the trail way

 

Suddenly I hear

while turning  around

a trickling noise

then a roaring sound

 

Following the path

a cool mist on my face

relief from the heat

I quicken my pace

 

Allowing my feet to dangle

in the pleasure of the rapid

another world appears

which mystical creatures inhabit

 

A chameleon appears

changing colors in the rainbow

finding food on a rock

his pace is quite slow

 

Down a bit further

a fish jumps along the bank

performing acrobatics

his movements are swank

 

A duck appears

bathing in the mist

diving and shaking his wings

doing the twist

 

Back to the real world

refreshed from the rapid stream

thankful for the inhabitants

of a summer day dream

Coping with Impossible Situations

This is a reblog my post that I wrote on August 29, 2017. Prayers for all and have a wonderful day!

Clouds 1

Storms come through

excessive wind and rain

impossible conditions

coming in like a train

 

Some people are good

ready to lend a helping hand

others are evil

taking advantage of the storm’s band

 

Impossible situations

difficult decisions to make

critics abound

praying for God’s grace

 

Finally it happens

a rash of good deeds

showing love and kindness

everyone taking the lead

 

Prayers are answered

hope is spread

food, clothing, and shelter

God is not dead

 

Impossible situations

God made us for these

faith, hope, and love

for these we are lead

 

Impossible situations

healing has begun

restoring communities

one by one

Hope: Antidote for Difficult Times

sun on river mountain 1

Panic spreads

throughout the land

a ravaging disease

fear of touching a hand

 

Fear is vicious

taking away people’s power

contagious darkness spreading

despair grows by the hour

 

The sun rises

it is a new day

an antidote grows

light is on the way

 

Rising out of the fear

through the light shines hope

love fights the fear

we learn to cope

 

Time passes

the disease appears to have no end

loving each other

we rely on friends

 

Hope is the antidote

causing the fear to bend

darkness is wiped out

Light wins in the end

A Yellow Flower Ribbon

 

 

Tying a yellow ribbon

around an old oak tree

sending a message to Heaven

you are still the one for me

 

Sending you hugs and kisses

from my heart to yours

living each moment

singing like a bird

 

Feeling you in the wind

your smile in the sun shine

thankful for each day

that you are mine

 

See all the yellow ribbons

that are being sent in my heart

loving you forever

knowing we will never part

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

The New Year

snow capped mountain alaska

Frigid cold on the mountain tops

a new year to get to know

sleeping dreams ready to rise

in the the flakes of snow

 

Months pass

the first bud of spring

renewal of life in the air

fledgling birds spread their wings

 

The soul senses change

with each new sun rise

tranquility and peace

experience helps us become wise

 

Reflections of trees

crispness in the air

leaves gently spreading color

birds singing with a flair

 

Winter sleep comes again

feeling like the comfort of a friend

silence and reflection

till another year begins
