Blessed and Refreshed

In the earliest moments of morning

While traffic outside is quiet,

The family sleeps,

The dog is still . . .

My stress disappears . . .

It’s just you and me.

I have all I need

And more!

A Knowing

Ah,

that delicious moment

when you don’t know how it’ll happen

and have no idea how things will play out

as you realize you can do nothing about it

yet

you know who does

and your soul is filled with peace!

YOU RAISE ME UP

May 19, 2018

Finding Love

I primped and perfected

or so I thought

but felt nothing.

I floated in an ocean of if only

and why not

as the waves grew higher

and brought me down.

You reached out,

you lifted me up,

you loved me.

You saw your beloved

absent of all those doubts

and insecurities.

The waters stilled

and as I looked at my reflection in them

I saw you.

NATURE’S VOICE

May 18, 2018

Tears of Joy

I sit at the water’s edge

hearing the music of the droplets

tumbling over the rocks at the shore . . .

sounds of strength and hope.

The Coming

February 17, 2017

Sitting here,

I know today is a dark and cold wintry day

But yesterday

It looked and felt like spring!

Only the bare branches betrayed

What the calendar on my wall tells me.

A knowledge of all that is to come

Heals my soul.

THE LEGASY

A leaf grows on my tree.

Seasons change

It falls,

It crumbles,

It’s gone!

But is it?

Every fiber of what was once living

Lives on in the lives

Which surrounded it.

LIVE!
