Summer Beach Day

IMG_4582

The beach lined coast

so tender and pure

beautiful sand and water

relaxation for sure

 

Summer vacation is here

visitors from far and near

come to visit the coast

with music in their ears

 

The sand and water

have sounds of their own

calming the soul

with waves that are overblown

 

The sun is shining

relaxation is the order of the day

reading a book

sleeping the afternoon away

 

The sun sets on the horizon

The day is done

Wonderful colors shining

Till the next mornings run

Summer Music

 

ms gulf coast barrier island may 9

Summer is fun and tender

music fills their hearts

people are singing

joyful sounds like art

 

The beach is filled

with bands from around

people are dancing

to the music that surrounds

 

The sun is shining

the waves are calm

accompany the music

the swaying of the palms

 

God gave us music

to nurture the soul

calmness and serenity

help to achieve the goal

 

Summer is fun

filled with delight

restoring the soul

with God’s light

Peaceful Mountain Dream

smokey mountatin waterfall 1

Crisp cool water

down a mountain stream

lying down after lunch

having a pleasant dream

 

The wildlife surrounds me

so tranquil and serene

living life peacefully

just like my dream

 

God blesses this world

with kindness to all

just like the beginning

before the fall

 

We can all live in a peaceful world

if we take the time

to learn about one another

and be kind

Tin Man with a Golden Heart

tin bicycle man clinton march 28 2017

The tin man is polished

riding along the line

tipping his hat to the ladies

looking so fine

 

He is searching for a heart

to make his love gold

riding on a bike

while growing old

 

Everyday he rides the bicycle

down the street

speaking to everyone

each day he meets

 

God blesses him

with a woman of gold

they are married now

living life till they are old

Rainbow Promises

rainbow on colorado mountain

The summer rains on the mountains fall

the sky is now clearing

with a rainbow across the sky

peace is nearing

 

Beautiful valleys

with grass and trees

are beckoning all to come visit

if they please

 

The colorful promise

of a new day

making all wildlife smile

as they make their way

 

God’s awesome creation

a sight to see

For every person

praying on his knee

 

The rainbow is a promise

from a long time ago

to never flood the Earth again

renewal for the soul

Nourishing the Soul in the Forest

colorado falls in park

The forest is vivacious

filled with trees and waterfalls

quiet and serene

filled with it all

 

It is summer in the forest

the trees are so green

reflecting off the water

an incredible scene

 

God made nature

for us to learn and observe

nourishing our souls

while we preserve

 

Never take for granted the beauty of the land

its lush creeks and waterfalls

trash and poor land management

will destroy it all

Beauty Inside and Out

penguins in las vegas 2

Penguins strutting around

so natty and smart

waddling in front of the visitors

like living works of art

 

Coats like a tuxedo

dressed in black and white

anxious for the guests to provide fish

oh what a site

 

God created the penguins

placed them in dapper attire

never having to worry

about fulfilling clothing desire

 

People should be so content

in the skin that they wear

God made everyone beautiful

kind souls to bare

 

Inner beauty is to be found

for all to see

showing kindness to all

is the key for you and me

Old Bridges

old bridge picture of daddy's

Old bridges

solid as they can be

speaking to the past

in the world surrounding me

 

The generations past

tell stories to one another

hoping not to repeat

the mistakes of the other

 

Solid and moving each way

the generations learn

to work together

as a uniform way to earn

 

Love is the stronghold

that holds us together

we must never forget

lest we untether

 

The days pass as we are young

Excited at how the day unfolds

But like the old bridges

One day our stories will be retold

The Serenity of Waterfalls

smokey mountain waterfall 2

Waterfalls are beautiful

They carry water away

Water flows into the river

And rushes down the way

 

Waterfalls contain energy

To power things far and wide

People canoe over them

Swaying side to side

 

Life is like a waterfall

Sliding over the cliff

Some people are angry

And get into a tiff

 

Other people are happy

Sliding over the fall

Never giving up hope

Of having it all

 

Waterfalls are calming to the soul

Listening to the rushing clatter

Sitting in meditation

Where nothing in the world seems to matter

Renewal and Peace

snow capped mountain alaska

In the distance a snow capped mountain

Surrounded by a lake of blue

Renewal is coming

The spring is new

The wildlife awoke

From a long winter’s sleep

Peace in the valley

Beginning so unique

God’s promise to us

If we will hear

Working together

Renewal and peace are near
