Sanctify: The Beauty of a New Day

colorado park river

Walking through the valley

seeking to sanctify my soul

breathing in deeply

smells from times of old

 

Smells of morning dew

whispers from the rain

mirror images in the river

cleansing away the pain

 

New life emerges

there is a new nature show

flowers surrounding me

blooms begin to glow

 

Sweet serenity

life begins anew

slowly cleansing my soul

now from a different point of view

 

Love envelopes me

stronger from the storm

stretching out to enjoy the day

the journey is full and transformed

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

Spring: Birds

male bluebird april 10

Songs in the air

the birds are singing

searching for a nest

a doorbell is ringing

 

Sitting on a perch

ready to move in

gathering branches

the nest is thin

 

Little ones now

the nest is full

sounds of chirping

worms to pull

 

Sun is out

learning to fly

aerial tricks

time passing by

 

Leaving the nest

to explore the world

cycle of life continues as

adventures become unfurled

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

The Waterfall

waterfall structure

In a vision

there was a waterfall

laughter surrounding it

the rocks quite tall

 

A group of siblings

in the heavenly realm

sharing love and happiness

God at the helm

 

There is a table

not far away

family sharing stories

about those in the earthly bay

 

Words of comfort

are sent down

till earthly time has passed

and all are in the heavenly realm

 

The beauty of the spirit

in this perfected time

sends water from heaven

to cleanse the earthly eye

 

Love never dies

loved ones are not far away

God allows comforting messages sent

along the water falls way

Love Never Dies

cypress swamp from left side march 31

Walking down the bridge

I feel you by my side

the wind in my hair

like a natural high

 

Though I am alone

you are in the trees and sky

your love is everywhere

embracing me from up high

 

A smooth reflection

wind whispering in the trees

your warm presence

a comfort to me

 

Time has passed

since you were here

called to Heaven above

you are still near

 

Love never dies

it continues to live

encouraging me to go on

your spirit continues to give

 

Crossing this bridge

am never alone

admiring the beauty

till I am called home

Through the Mirror of Time

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas! A time of sadness for me that is comforted by the Heavenly Light.

bill and debbie wedding pic

 

Through the mirror of time

lies memories of past

a day of happiness

meant to last

 

Dreams from long ago

a couple beaming with bliss

a Christmas wedding

straight from Santa’s list

 

Blessings from the Light

a gift to the world

a tiny cry of hope

emotions in a twirl

 

Happiness reigns

till the end of time

a spiritual connection

a Heavenly bind

 

On this Christmas

celebrate the Light

know pure love

is in sight

Where is the Light

mom rose garden april 1

There is sadness in my soul

longing for life of ole

little flicker almost out

need the light to shout

 

Longing to be close to my love

who has been called above

little flicker almost out

need the light to shout

 

Able to eat again

fatty foods not thin

little flicker almost out

need the light to shout

 

From the garden a message comes

his love for me is not done

little flicker begins to flame

the light is shouting beginning to gain

 

A gift from above

God is love

little flicker is now a flame

the light is shouting my name
