BLESSINGS! NEVER FAR AWAY

Ah,

My screened porch,

You,

me,

coffee,

my puppy . . .

Glorious autumn weather

does not betray 

the stormy, rainy days

that now have passed us by.

They are simply replaced by blessings!

THE BREAK THROUGH!

HOPE RISING

March 19, 2017

He’s Got This

 

The rain continues to pour

As darkness claims the sky

But

I looked up

And saw through a crack in a cloud

That the sun is still near.

Hope rises.

ENCOURAGEMENT DURING THE STORM

February 10, 2017

Seasons Do Change

As the choir sang

In my personal sanctuary

I heard the last bits of the rains of yesterday

Drip from the roof deck above.

Tiny bits of pollen in the air

Caused an itch

Or the occasional twitch,

But brought as well a reminder

Of the coming of spring.

It won’t be long, now.

HAPPINESS IS A DECISION WE MAKE!

July 4, 2016

As a girl from the northeast living in the south, I had to  get used to beautiful days suddenly without warning being hit by thunderstorms!  Bummed me out at first, then I caught on that storms pass and I am refreshed!  This is true of metaphorical storms as well!

My Choice

Thunderous applause

reaches me from the sky.

Some call it a storm

but I call it joy

in the wonders yet to come!

WINDY DAYS

January 13, 2016

Faith,

like the wind,

blows me in unexpected directions

yet blesses . . .

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.
