Father to All

Strong are my spoken words
for they come from my heart
I speak to all who will listen
who feel His love in their soul

He is a vision who is real as He
shows us His path that we are
destined to walk for He comes
to spread  His love and glory

Let your soul be full of peace as
one is no longer alone for our Lord
is there in our presence, know He is
Father to all - come and adore Him

A lost child’s game
Long ago thoughts buried
Sleepy eyed visions wished upon
Hear the bluebirds that have long since been gone
Joyous dreams dance in the night air
Granting wishes somewhere
Hear my thoughts now

Multitude of Feelings

Happy -
head spinning
round and round
dizzy from excitement
joy, laughter

Feelings -
overwhelmed tears of joy
anticipating happiness
to come, wishing it
would never go away

Loving -
full heart shares
with others hugs
kisses, spreading all
good things to - the world

Rural Thoughts

Colorful Aspen Grove in Fall

Shadows deep
Hold secrets swarming
Within an untold mind
Reach for Aspens
Painted on portraits
Viewed by the
 Leaping sun

The soul is calmed
guiding the body
through the curvatures
of the world highways
Moments now and again
bring it to bend, to sway
as bouts of dis-pleasures
battle the weary frame

Storms arouse the soul
testing limits
grabs its being to
reveal the stability

Strength within
captures the essence
surrounds the beating heart
giving protection from the -

soul storm that invaded thee

Silhouette in the Sun

Hills outside the valley
picturesque in brilliant green
talk to us and our souls
reminding what’s in between

Heaven’s blue will capture you
taking us into rapture’s flight
saving all in a single bound
accepting His destiny’s plight

Speak to Him and call His name
for His words echo’s in our minds
teaching us love and forgiveness
will save our earthly souls in time

His breath was taken long ago
for His flock it’s said, that He died
my sinner’s eyes look at Him
I feel His pain as I cried

Today, bright and glorious blue
I feel His love surely come
For we are but a silhouette
in the shadow of His sun -

remembering the day, He died
for each and everyone

His Song of Goodbye

I see her smile as she looks my way
her deadly silence does display,
My heart knows she must be the one
laughing with cynicism within her tongue

With Crimson Satin upon her breast
clings to her body’s frame as if a test,
Draping soft curves along her trim waist
longs to depart without lingering haste

She moves across the room glancing his way
then looks away as if her lips would say,
‘You wait your turn’ I’m not ready yet
I’ll whisper your name with Ruby lips wet

I look to see how he reacts to her glance
seems uncomfortable; wish he had a chance,
Taking my drink I move to his side
trying to tell him my love I can not hide

Aware of me his eyes let me know
then they move away so very slow,
Eyes that drift to a Crimson Satin doll
his longing eyes slide across the dance hall

I knew his love has drifted away
for the bond we had he can not display,
Loving arms that once held me tight
now drift away during day’s sunlight

One has captured his heart from me
she must be the one who has stolen I see,
Ruby lips and she is dressed to kill
my heart cries like the Whippoorwill

Songs of love he sang into the night
love songs now gone as he takes his flight,
My heart is broken for she must be the one
I have known the truth, now I heard it sung -

in his song of goodbye

Autumn's Gift

Autumn comes to all so sweet
Paints her leaves she leaves a treat
She longs for awaited sleep
Soon winter snow comes so deep –

Autumn brings peace

Jesus walking with me

Knowing - deep in our hearts
we shall come around again in time
we salvage what truth is for we
shall draw upon it twice as much

Knowing - deep in our minds
faith is the key to our sanity
we lean to those who bring us
safety with their heartfelt love

Knowing - deep in our beings
a sanction is waiting to comfort
leading us to a light of fulfillment
and joy with others who know - Him

For Now...

Half of the 60 million American women 
who are 45 and older are single

My life is full with joy in my heart
feeling inner peace surrounding me
knowing I am blessed

But, something is missing as I try to
sweep the feeling to a secret place
a pocket hiding deep in my soul

Trying not to think about this empty
void it comes, it stays, it lingers
longer than I wish

Longing for companionship
sharing words with another
sharing thoughts together

It is not meant to be for I have
been lead in another direction
walking this path alone

He says, for now...

what you see shall
come through Me

Curtains of Lace

Curtains of lace
Fill my world
The cool airy
Elegance of thread
Woven into patterns
Of sheer beauty

Like the threads woven
So is our life’s pattern
So delicate but
Strong against the world

Intertwined are we to love
And to be loved
This is our choice
This is what shall be -

For Infinity

Unsettled Trail

Discovery - comes in strange ways
from the slightest intuition to an event
that stirs right in front of one’s eyes

Discovery - triggers strength within
as one gains the fortitude to investigate
what questions lie in the dormant mind

Discovery - the mind’s learning
tool that brings completion to a
lingering unsettled trial of trust…

from years of the past

Is the Same...

Wherever I go, my Father is with me
He shows me the right direction
gives me wisdom and confidence
how to handle the strife before me

Whenever I cry, my Father dries my tears
gives me comfort and a contented heart
for He knows I am deserving of His grace
and blessings to complete my spiritual life

Whatever I dream, He fulfills my thoughts
gives my spirit the will to seek my desires
teaching me to plan my daily walks to His
garden of purity and goodness filled with love

Whoever comes into view, with a complaint or
thought that leads me to a misguided moment
I say unto you - He will bless your soul anyway
His love for you is the same love He gives to me

Sounds of the Past

The hum of a Bumble Bee busy at his work
brings to mind its lost memories from long ago
sounds of the past enter the channels of the mind
as thoughts are triggered of a peaceful existence

Life is not serene as noises wave in an out
of a journey recalled in thoughts from long ago
childhood lessons taught and then carefully used
discovery of adventures while one ran with play

The hum of a Bumble Bee again brings memories
young years are gone for they faded into the past
but, the heart is full as thoughts overwhelm the soul
for a mind is not dark with clear visions of its past

Thoughts of a Fortune Cookie

"Patience makes lighter
what sorrow may not heal."

Patience comforts the mind
as sorrow may not heal
if one’s thought are lighter
it is easier as one walks the
road to a new understanding
of circumstances around them…

A Horoscope - Virgo

Faith in the universe is a rare and lovely thing,
confidence within one's mind is shared with
those of immediate contact, sharing harmony

As the world storms around mad at someone or
something I, being on an oasis of calm, spread inspiration
in this otherwise hectic day of confusion and mistrust

Gaining new appreciation of mankind and their
wayward ways as the people of anger are drawn to a
point of peace that surrounds them with calm

or take heed for an -
upheaval eruption, shall not wait

Written in March 2010

My interruption of my Horoscope written on that day.

Your faith in the universe is a rare and lovely thing, and that confidence is certainly going to come in handy today. The rest of the world will likely be storming around, mad at something or someone. But you'll be an oasis of calm, an inspiration in this otherwise hectic day. Share your peacefulness with others if possible. The angst-ridden masses will be drawn to your
placid charm.

A Happier Road

Where does my heart lie?
Somewhere in the past
Dormant sleep with sadness
Happiness doesn’t seem to last

Thoughts of yesteryear
Slowly come my way
As if to bring me silent peace
Past is Ok whispers seem to say

Life lessons have many meanings
Put your thoughts in a tight row
Disregard all harmful waves
Grasp memories and keep them in tow

For life is what you chose to create
No need to carry that heavy load
Rearrange and adjust your day
Seek your path to a happier road
