Raging Water in Life

The water rages

a mesmerizing site

tossing intimate details of my soul

trying to cause a fright

Every fear

imagined or real

churning it all

telling me how to feel

The water slows

there is raft

a tree reaches for me

begging me to graft

A decision to be made

is this something I can trust

a blanket of security

or something else to make me rust

Suddenly there is calm

a reassuring voice

trust in the Light

and rejoice

Grafted now

the water is calm

the fear is gone

listening to a Psalm

A sprout comes from me

in the darkness there is light

hope abounds

my soul rejoices at the site

A Canyon View

Climbing the slope is awkward

trying not to fall

determined to reach the top

to observe the view with awe

Reaching the top

observing a lineament in the rock

such beautiful colors

like the tail of a peacock

The epitome of grandeur

enough to speak to the heart

so much to take in

perfect art

Taking a breath

the wind begins to blow

whistling through the crevices

adding music to the show

Rain shower begins

dew against the stone

small rocks shimmer

no one is alone

The showers stop

a colorful bright rainbow appears

time to climb down

sunset is near

Feeling calm

ready to sleep

thankful for God’s grace

and for my soul’s peace to keep

The Old Bell

In the midst of nudiustertian

wresting the tree limb

the old bell nudged

sounding a note from a hymn

The wind howls

as the tower gets an overhaul

power washing the bricks

mold now gone from summer rainfalls

The bell is stunning

surrounded by oak and maple trees

brilliant yellow and red leaves

swaying in the breeze

The brass on the bell

gets a cleaning

dirt and grime are removed

now shining brightly with the sun beaming

The bell rings again

as it has for two hundred years

its melodious sound

continues to bring joy to all who hear

A Love Filled Meeting

Galavanting down the street

remiss at the cars passing by

the gentlemen lifts his hat

his head held high

The ladies balk

at the sight

a man wearing a suit

riding a bike

He pulls into a yard

straightens his tie

a woman is waiting

lunch on the lania

Laughing and carrying on

stories being told

he holds her hand

a knight from days of old

Walking down the street

listening to the birds sing

the man bends down

gives her a ring

An old fashion story

of a couple in love

each completes the other

a gift from above

Many years have passed

the couple is now old

riding bicyles together

basking in love that never grows cold

A Squirrel’s New Year

Goodbye to the old year

hello to the new

time for squirrel adventures

racing in the morning dew

Tis the season of renewal

time to have some fun

new seed in the bird feeders

humans to out run

A new brass feeder hangs

a gift from St. Nick

think that glass will stop me

a thrown rock broke it like a brick

Seed dropping to the ground

the human is running

watching that expression

the humor is stunning

Ah a new year

no need to hide

my cheeks filled with seed

2021 is going to be a fun ride

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

Coping with Impossible Situations

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

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
