Royal Orchestra – Haiku

Ah, morning breezes

leaves sway to your melody

sunrays dance along

Memories are not always heartbreakers. There will come a time when tears become joy as the love is still in our hearts. As I wrote something on a different time in my life, though I miss people, places, and things from back then, I also feel the joy and love that I felt then and still can feel IT.. At this moment my feet are cold because this artist feels the snow that had fallen . . and the glow of evening’s moonlight. I can see Mom’s smiling face watching me through the window and can recall her scurrying off to bed so I would not know she watched. She didn’t want to upset me. Silly Mama! IT NEVER DID!

and beauty

are everywhere!

They travel hand in hand . . .

To live

with open eyes and open hearts

is all we require!

It’s your choice!

My body may be broken,

But my heart and soul

Are still dancing.

I am my heart and soul!

This I share with the universe . . .

My mind can only know so much.

It is only when my heart and soul are fed

that I am forever changed.

We say we are sincere, but are we?

True sincerity, like the mirror on the wall, speaks non-verbally.

We communicate it heart to heart!

Conflicting Hearts

February 17, 2014

“what’s that racket?” you asked,

As I flung open the doors

To the sunroom.

All around me countless birds sang!

Feeling the warmth of an almost spring day,

I heard “too cold!”

Basking in the radiance

Of the morning sun streaming

From a cloudless sky,

I heard you closing the blinds

“too much glare!”

My smile faded a bit

As I knew we were together,

Yet in vastly different placed.

Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. Isaiah 26:7-9

Where Jesus Lives

December 31, 2013

Jesus saves pic

I read somewhere today that we should use our brains as our hearts know nothing. I am SOOO thankful that I know better. “They” can mess with your head and quote chapter and verse to prove their point. The Bible is often the weapon of choice. It is so often quoted out of context. But Jesus lives in my heart. When it is a happy heart He is there. When it is a broken heart He is there. When there are no answers, when there are only clouds, He holds the answers and He is the Son shining. The heart KNOWS because He lives there.

Blessings In A Tattered Cardboard Box

October 22, 2013

Blessings do not always come on silver trays,

wrapped in ribbons and festive bows.

Sometimes they come in dusty boxes

lugged by sweaty arms.


a spider or two may tag along.

When you face life with an open heart,

you discover miracles happen


You may even wonder what you’ve missed!
