Overcast, like Winter Days that threaten from cotton Skies to drop blankets Of freezing sleet, snow, and ice, My life withers without you.
I write love poems only because I know love due to experience. The fruitlessness of current days makes me fear I am lost with no way.
I never know how these entries will fall, whether readers will like them or not. I do know I always hope they bring glory to God.
My life has been a jumble of experiences. Without the miraculous love of Jesus, I would not have come so far.
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.— Proverbs 19:21

Prayer, experience, Discipline through joy and pain, Let us grow and claim Nurture and understanding – Bringing a faithful landing.

Amens The light of day approaches soft as a kiss The straw and trees become I clearly hear the arrival of birds A rooster in the distance crows As I open the door for the dogs I brace myself for the chill; Morning a pleasure given By God who holds it in His hands.

Swerve The path ahead is narrow There is little space to waste A moment out of real-time, But coming round a curve The sudden traffic stops, swerve! On the grass, signed, “Keep Off!” The forest beckons, a dream welcomes, Crystal shines, the path behind, But entering the story between the lines Adventure takes hold, sweeps off the reek Of buildings and pollution, here safe to keep – Creativity impinging every minute, wild awake.
Sometimes Red, Others Green The mind can close, bars in, gates down, red, Tools to separate ideas, thoughts, imagination – pushed Until the opening, green, when everything flows Bringing chaos together, intellect unleashed – tempestuous dreams.
Place Yourself The page, a world, wide-open, The canvas, an ever-emerging vision, The photograph, anything, anywhere, seen, The pan, pot – whatever is gotten, mixed, hot, The lesson captured wisdom, learning sought, The film, bringing imagination alive, action caught, The music, no static, instruments, voices, well-arranged, The business, constant motion, full-accounting, bills paid, All things in unison, talent-focused, money made; Ideas merge artistry, creation, creators, each trying To make life worth the sands running down, The moments a treasure, pleasure, of being – Who we become on the journey toward Heaven’s gates.
Bits of Evanescence You, whoever thought pronounces thee Are not in any sort of captivity Though you may feel caged, you are free To be the one you want and need to be. This world, its shadows are not yours, mine, We transform what seems into joy we find When our souls are given ample space, time, To become caring, gracious, generous, kind. No barrier can imprison, prevent, shackle Love, It goes wherever hearts open to the treasure trove Carried in all the feeling fully expressed Given to others without return’s expectation, blessed. Happiness born in simplicity Sharing the goodness of spirit, aptly, Feeding the yearnings, bestowing energy, To turn life into Love’s overwhelming ministry.
