De Colores – A Tanka Poem

Life in black and white.

Weeds grow in Eden’s Garden.

Original sin.

God’s compassion . . . Jesus Christ.

Garden blooms, living color!

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL?

May 17, 2019

The faithful and hardworking gardener fertilizes the vegetables and pulls and discards the weeds.  This makes all the difference.

WELCOME BLESSINGS OF SPRING!

April 24, 2019

HAPPY SPRING


HOPE CAN ALWAYS BE FOUND!

January 22, 2019

Among Weeds and Thorns

Digital Camera

When the garden is filled with weeds

Yet one stubborn flower

Finds the strength to grow,

Am I to frown

Because it is the only one?

Is it not a very welcomed blessing?

Surely its beauty

Nourishes my hungry soul

Giving me the strength

To tackle the overgrowth

Of opposition

Not unlike the single

Blooming rose

Basking in the midst

Of thorns;

Hope

Of a coming new season!

SIZE CAN FOOL YOU

Plant a mustard seed.

Simple, often overlooked

Yet richly provides.

YOU CANNOT HIDE

October 22, 2018

No matter how hard a lemon

may try to disguise itself as an apple,

The Gardener will know the truth.

Sprinkling sugar on the surface

will not make sweet that which is not.

CHILDREN ARE LIKE FLOWERS

August 9, 2018

 

 

The tiny child placed a seed

In the fertile ground.

He sadly thought he lost his seed

After looking all around!

The season changed,

He played outside,

Can you guess just what he found?
