A Bountiful Season

apple bloom 2 april 14

 

Spring blooms

spreading pollen in the wind

brilliant colors

life renewing again

 

The bees feast

going to each bloom

homage to the bounty

giving each other room

 

The bush continues

to grow and reproduce

there is nectar  for honey

natures sweet produce

 

The blooms begin to fade

a small fruit emerges

there is beauty in life

with each season’s surges

 

The harvest is coming

the cooler air of fall

feasting on the bounty

a thrill for all

 

A celebration occurs

dignifying the bounty

fairs and contest

people from the county

 

God’s provision

a celebration indeed

the wonderful cycle of life

a glorious site to see

A Sunday Meditation

snow capped mountain alaska

 

I gazed across the valley

paying homage to the Lord

reflecting upon my blessings

humming a quiet chord

 

God gave me a voice

in which to praise and glorify

reflect upon the beauty

on the land and in the sky

 

He gave me feet

to walk across the land

kindness to others

lending a helping hand

 

He gave me a heart

teaching me how to love

helping others in need

a gift from above

 

He gave me freedom

to choose which way to live

expressing hate or love

my choice which to give

 

This meditation is ending

choosing love as my path

thankful for the choice

an eternity that will last
