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

Winter Blooms in the Spring

Hope in the spring

from winter blooms

beautiful colors

fill the room

 

Promises of life

continue to grow

the spirit soars

the heart knows

 

Love never dies

birds continue to sing

soothing songs to the soul

each with a unique ring

 

Looking closer

bees buzz around

spring blooms emerging

nature has a relaxing sound

 

Meditation over

peace has returned

life continues

love is affirmed

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

Gratitude- Countdown to Thanksgiving 2

white flowers at ms art museum april 20

Gratitude

for those who came before

for their courage and hard work

opening for me a life door

 

Gratitude

for the lessons that I learned

for the experiences

for blessings unearned

 

Gratitude

for the sun and the moon

for birds singing

for the wind that swoons

 

Gratitude

for traveling through time

for the privilege of growing old

for stories told for a dime

 

Gratitude

for all who have passed through my life

for the love and the blessings

and a glimpse of the afterlife

 

Gratitude

for things that make me smile

for the journey

for each life mile

 

Gratitude

for another Thanksgiving

for everything

that makes life worth living
