Bastion: A Cardinal From Heaven

IMG_3680

A bastion of hope

the cardinal sings

there are messages

from Heaven he brings

 

A far off place

visits from those that have departed

bright red feathers

love has not been discarded

 

Not far away

there is a nest

a bastion of protection

little ones rest

 

Landing in a tree

observing the world in a branch

seeking new adventures

continuing to advance

 

Flying away

a visit to ponder

smiles on faces

spirit comforted with wonder

Nightmare: A Storm Within My Soul

IMG_4885

Walking through a life storm

unable to see

figures move around me

what can they be

 

The cold is biting

an issue gnaws at my soul

is there a solution

will there be a goal

 

Fighting harder

the wind beats against my skin

it grows darker

will this nightmare end

 

The trees form a shape

it is more frightening than before

will I be enveloped

is there a door

 

Suddenly a door appears

sanctuary for this day

trudging through the snow to reach it

something in the way

 

Reaching the knob

hobbling inside

a solution to an issue

I have survived

Insight: Life of a Coastal Bird

coastal bird ms gulf coast may 9

 

Little coastal bird

dressed to a tee

give me some insight

into a world foreign to me

 

Little bird speaks 

scooping a bug in his wing like hand

the world is filled with wonder

especially surrounded by sand

 

So many treasures

come in with each wave

some with delicious food

others sounding like an airwave

 

Running around

exercising with the wind

chasing small fish 

hoping to seize them at the end

 

Flying now

joining others in the sky

enjoying the clouds

occasionally coming down to dive

 

The world of a bird

special to all who observe

enjoying the journey

and the opportunity to serve

Redux: Awakening in the Spring

geese drinking water in strawberry park april 24

 

Spring brings a redux

of all forms of life

waking from a winter’s sleep

geese, squirrels, and other wildlife

 

Bringing antics

associated with the young

so much laughter

some are high strung

 

Watching the water

goslings learn to swim

playing follow the leader

diving on a whim

 

Seeing a fish jump

their eyes fill with wonder

attempting to catch one

missing as it goes under

 

Marching back to the nest

it’s time for a nap

mother tucking them in

under her wing wrap

 

Wonderful spring day

redux in the park

relaxing as children play

listening to the dog’s bark
