Coping with Impossible Situations

Clouds 1

Storms come through

excessive wind and rain

impossible conditions

coming in like a train

 

Some people are good

ready to lend a helping hand

others are evil

taking advantage of the storm’s band

 

Impossible situations

difficult decisions to make

critics abound

praying for God’s grace

 

Finally it happens

a rash of good deeds

showing love and kindness

everyone taking the lead

 

Prayers are answered

hope is spread

food, clothing, and shelter

God is not dead

 

Impossible situations

God made us for these

faith, hope, and love

for these we are lead

 

Impossible situations

healing has begun

restoring communities

one by one

Living in Spiritual Beauty

rocky spring cemetery april 28

The stillness of the day

 stones of the past

small reflections of the lives

passing from times last

 

The monuments carry 

names and dates

some rhyme with small messages

too little too late

 

The sadness lessens

with the passage of time

becoming history lessons

of life lived on a dime

 

Our bodies are marked

by a small six foot space

leaving only memories

which time can erase

 

Where is our legacy

it is written in the wind

kindness and loving each other

this part of life will never end

 

Carried through the generations

lessons to be learned

small monuments depict

what lessons were earned

 

Going into eternity

loving throughout all time

living on in spirit

beauty in the sublime
