His Fix-It Shop For the Heart – A Tanka

It is pouring rain.

Here I sit in hope not felt

Yet I still believe.

I have not placed my fingers

In the holes . . . yet He filled mine.

AGAPE

October 9, 2018

Here I am awake;

alone on a moonlit night.

I hunger for love

and then unseen arms hold me.

Ah, your ever present love!

IMAGE OF GOD

I stand on the shore.

Low tide twinkles like diamonds!

When the time is right,

The tide comes in – high, mighty . . .

Yet beautiful just the same!

De Colores – A Tanka Poem

Life in black and white.

Weeds grow in Eden’s Garden.

Original sin.

Garden blooms, living color!

TWINKLING OF HOPE

March 21, 2016

The darkness of night

stares at me through my window

but it holds no fear.

for, though the moon is hidden

hope – that tiny star – remains!

SING ON!

MISSTEP TRANSFORMED TANKA

Bird on a tree branch,

do you think you sing off key?

One who knows your heart

could never believe it so,

hearing only joyful noise.

Soul Food

Winter’s chill outside

Cannot change the warmth inside,

placed there by your love.

As I think of Living Bread

I will bake, then break and share.
