Let The Children

A child’s hand reaches,

Her eyes filled with wonder!

Her heart has wings!

When I Stray

September 25, 2015

In the night

I gazed at the light streaked sky

before the raindrops even touched me . . .

Already concerned about damaging winds

which never came my way.

Don’t be disheartened by a cloudy day.

The Light radiating from a single candle dispels darkness!

SHINE! – Martha L Shaw​

Rays of Light

I can hold the light

shine, share, and warm you with it

and it never fades

Scattering Joy

September 16, 2015

Clouds among the blue skies

Hint at scattered showers

On the way.

I can choose to frown

But I prefer

To laugh at the puffs of white

And dance between the droplets!

The road turned,

I knew not where.

Should I turn back

Or follow?

Behind me all was familiar . . .


Unknown blessings . . .

I rode the breeze

And followed the sun,


Dancing in its radiance!

Overlooked Diamonds

When did humble come to be viewed in such a negative light? Are not rocks, once polished, often gem stones in disguise? – Martha L Shaw
