Familiarity,

I have known you.

Uncertainty,

I float through your cloud.

Authenticity,

You are mine.

The happy little dandelion

growing in the field

smiled toward heaven

all the while.

No one ever said

“you’re just a weed”

so he had no doubt

that he was loved.

Perhaps

there is a lesson

here for me?

A Morning Prayer

July 29, 2015

sunshine

The sun still shines

when I stare only at the clouds.

The difference is

that when I do this

I close the blinds in my soul

to its rays.

Lord, help me not to do this!

A pot filled with weeds

oh so bravely faced the sun

and a rose appeared

Reflection

July 24, 2015

The old worn mirror

held in the hands of many

long before me

seems at first glance to

poorly depict my image.

In truth,

it does a  far better job

compared to the shiny new one

for it looks much deeper

to find the real me.

His Will

If the mama bird

kept her babies in the nest,

loved. . . they’d never fly.
