Out Of The Darkness

April 29, 2014

An eye is not an eye at all

Without a healthy heart

To direct its focus.

For alone,

it is simply an orb

Ah,

But when the heart opens the door

To Light,

Darkness departs

forever gone from memory,

And God’s love all the eye can see!

I’m Rich In Him

April 25, 2014

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.Colossians 1:27-28 NIV

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

Today seems like a good day to finish my submission of poems for the Haiku Society of America 2014 Members’ Anthology.  Gary Hotham is the Editor.  This link goes to the page about the anthology at their website:

I’m also reading Spilled Milk: Haiku Destinies by Gary Hotham.  This beautiful book was published by Pinyon Publishing in 2010.  The book includes Sumi-E Watercolors by Susan E. Elliott.

As you know, Luci Shaw is a favorite poet, and I learned of Pinyon Publishing in Colorado, when I ordered her book Harvesting Fog: Poems by Luci Shaw (2010).

Arise, Shine!

Isaiah 60:1

60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,

    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

Perhaps it is just me, but the Light seems to be shining extra brightly this

morning and my fine feathered choir seems to sing more

sweetly than ever!

 He Holds Me Close

April 18, 2014

holding hands

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crickets and rain drops outside my window,

Quiet my distracted soul

And not unlike a lullaby,

I feel my spirit finding rest

In You.

Songs of the Angels

April 16, 2014

freedom thoughts

 

Music of the angels,

Sounds resonating

Outside my window.

Peace, joy, praise

Calms my body

And uplifts my soul.

A bark,

A tweet,

A clap of thunder.

Love of God,

Nature . . . nurture  . . .

Comes in all shapes and sizes.

He made and loves them all.
