Hope Rises

February 24, 2018

 My bread dough rises like the sun

In a cold unleavened sky.

My heart is warmed,

My hands reaching out

To prepare the loaf it will become,

To bake,

To break,

To share.

My Beloved

A palm branch welcome

A donkey ride, “hosanna!!”

Change Not – A Micropoem

I cannot change

my circumstances,

but my circumstances do not

have to change me!

On To Victory

September 13, 2013

With your love

Though I’m surrounded by artillery

And the bomb blasts are constant,

Still I hear the trumpets play

The victors song!

Are you going through some things right now?  I am.  It has slowed me down but it cannot stop me unless I allow it to. 


There’s no disaster that can’t become a blessing, and no blessing that can’t become a disaster.  – Richard Bach –
