Family Reunions

geese drinking water in strawberry park april 24

Family reunions

such a fun place to be

aunts, uncles, and cousins

so great to see

 

Some are local

others from far away

telling stories

from back in the day

 

We are blessed

to visit with one another

learning about life

from each other

 

The food is wonderful

most of it barbeque

salads and desserts

with a few dishes new

 

Thanking God for His blessing

enjoying this time together

fun and games

each year is a pleasure

 

We are part of a large community

welcoming each newcomer

growing each year

watching babies slumber

 

Blessing are abound

as we remember the old

thankful for the past

as our stories are told

Sweet Summer Food

small pear 2 april 14

Eating a pear while walking

on a warm summer day

grown locally

from a tree on my way

 

My soul is nourished

eating this way

helping local farmers

living by the bay

 

God gave this land

to provide for our needs

lovely sweet fruits

from which to feed

 

There are festivals

across the land

celebrating local produce

with music and bands

 

It is summer

good things are abound

sharing with others

having fun all around

Summer Festivals

boats on marina lakeshore park april 10

Boats in the marina

waiting for a day of fun

people bringing coolers

for a day in the sun

 

The local waterways

are filled on this day

with kayaks and rafts

people out to play

 

Music on the water

harmony among folks

kindness to one another

happiness is invoked

 

Local festivals in the summer

people sharing a meal

learning about one another

how people feel

 

The day is over

sun setting in the park

harmony rules the day

as people head home in the dark
