His Love Is Always With Us!

Warmth within - a feeling of calm
joy come to thee as promised
with continued faith that grows

Alone - one is not alone
the mind must absorb that truth
for without it - one would be alone

Time moves on for all who carry woe
somehow we get through our doubts
somehow we manage to endure...

for His love is always with us
that shows us the way

Rhoda's Bookshelf Goes Boom!

Suddenly a boom
bookshelf on the floor
hours of poems to see no more
walls old - mollies fell out too soon!

Books aligned all in a row
could see books published so proud
a crash burst my pages so loud
sad to see mess pages lay so low

All is well books I will store
could have fell on my head so hard
or happened when I was out in yard
little sad I am but, all will be fixed by...

Blessings comes one's way if they believe
positive thoughts guides one to their right path
know He is on your side brings true faith...
without it one would surely die alone

Clouds That Part

His Heavenly Home Shines Upon Us

Thoughts on a low scale
to figure out the grief among us
daily news is grim as we spill blood
not a word of comfort to share

Why has the world changed so
is it the media or the phones
or that people just don't care
to converse in a civil manner

Tube is something to be desired
flip the channels up and down
so dismayed end up with a frown
try not to give in to hatred among us

Tomorrow clouds that part
brighter day to dwell with a spirit lifted
tears come from His heavenly home
as He desperately tries to...

 wash the world clean - again

Find Happiness Within

Thoughts of tranquility
moments of peace
time moves right along
comfort found deep within

Time to take charge
life is of ones making
time to look ahead
joy is there to be found

World is full of hate
filters into the brain
take control feel the calm
all to make their own plan

Take a deep breath
fresh air fills the lungs
moments of love comes
let it in - let it grow inside...

to be shared with those 
who touch you

Oh Beautiful...

Spring buds have bloomed
silent from the long winter past
grass is lovely green
trees follow their path

Heavenly blue skies in my sight
brings such love from His home
a perfect day of rejoice
brings one not wanting to roam

How can one not love this land
so beautiful to the eye
pride in carried deep within
a prayer I say with a sigh

when I think about America

Posting Blues!!!

Guess it's time to write again
miss it but, don't know where to begin
life sort of a downer the past few days
very lonely as I live in my simple ways

What can I say when one lives alone
oh, I am self caring don't want for a bone
but, friends all have family that call and care
somehow my family just doesn't seem to be aware

Sometimes I just wish someone would say
can I do something for you in a kind sort of way
not that I need help and all that stuff
just long for a smile when going gets tough

Well, I guess this mood will soon past
maybe I miss my writing from long ago last
I thank Gracie and KiKi they catch me when I fall
for without them there would be no love at all...

in Patchogue!

(thank you for your reading support)

Nature's Gifts ~ haiku

gentle morning mist
scarlet glow sets evening sun
nature's unwrapped gifts

Spring, Oh Spring!

Spring comes to me
with sparkle and glow
as the sun shines brightly
on a day yearned for so

Buds beautifully come to bloom 
although struggle in the ground
been a long winters sleep
reach the sun soon to be found

Tree leaves will flourish their birth
birds chirp while they build their nests
squirrels run and play together
lay on branches they come to rest

Spring, oh spring excited you are here
longed for months for you to show
beautiful time for all to warmly share
happy days we're all a sunny glow

A Long Winter's Day

Today is calm a pure delight
sun brightly shining
kitties enjoy the window light

Winter has been harsh for all
cold and dreary each morn
seems all started late last fall

Know down deep spring is near
all wait with gladness to share
first spring day is rain - don't cheer

Days will come full of play
long winter for all is now gone
silently sleeps until another day

Long ago, feelings gone and lost
disappeared - who cared the cost,
emotion tears the mind apart
knew truth from a youthful start

Carry on with life’s unsettled woes
doing what’s right the simple life goes,
nurtures all except for whats within
fulfills emotion so love can begin

Time passed year to year
thoughts embedded hides a tear,
knowing peace would come one day
one is tested to see if faith strays

The heart though strained and tried
carried a pain difficult to hide,
the day suddenly told its goodbyes
to a world that displays hidden lies -

as sorrow slowly buries its past

Memory's Book

Misty dawn’s light touches the windowsill
awakes the sleeping silent Whippoorwill
calls his heart to sing an early morn's song
chanting to others, he sings - come along

Take the road that leads to a peaceful walk
stroll together, we remember and talk
special events in our life come and go
nothing to change, happy with what we sow

All that crossed our life’s path was pure delight
as it was intended, life was just right
memories tucked away in the mind’s book
there for one to savor and take a look

Old pages worn and torn from fingers touch
looking back fills the heart with love and such

Night Clouds

Movement of the moon as it
slithers across the sky, casts a glow
that displays the characters designed
within the night clouds resting.

Forming of distinguished shapes
within themselves by a gentle breeze
passes in the night, swirls by on
its own destination of adventure.

Covered by the evenings darkest of hue
the glorious creations floats in a manner
of lifelessness, but eagerly says to all,
“Come sit with me, if only for a moment”.

Pausing, with wants to caress the momentum
of the passing object of a misty monument, 
the spirit lingers as it defies its own destiny,
wonders if it dares to linger a moment longer. 

Moving to another point in time the night
clouds abandon its glorious spot for another as,
new shape for tomorrow develops for the youthful
eyes to see, as the new dawn’s morn opens…

just for a moment with its visual truth.

The Soul Storm

The soul is calm
it guides the body
through the curvatures
of the worlds highway

Moments now and again
brings a bend or a sway
as bouts of displeasures
battle its weary frame

Storms arouse the soul
again to test limits
grabs one's being to
reveal their stability

Strength within
captures the essence
surrounds the heart that beats
giving protection from the...

soul storm 
that invaded thee

Looking Forward

Looking forward
is where I want to be
for it leads me straight
so my eyes can see
a vision in my mind
guides me to thee

Looking forward
is feeling grand
as I grow within
I take my stand
following Him
I take His hand

Looking forward
I shall not carry a frown
nor hear the sad words
from ones who are down
for their light has not come
they can’t see His crown

Gracie at 3 Years Old

Her kitty heart is always with me
I am so blessed to have her home
she comes to me with a gentle touch
never wants to wander and roam

Having a dog would be just great
apartment can't handle the in and outs
my love is a kitty its my life right now
she my bud there's surely no doubts

Her name is Gracie and she is now nine
still has her asthma and meds each night
but in spite of it all she is the best
she loves her Mommy and all is just right

Gentle Emotions...

His Words Speak to All Who Will Listen

Words come silently in the night

comfort becomes the body's rest
whirling mind slows its pace just right
sleep renews blessed vision best

Morning dawn will gently wake all
with promise of goodness to come
motions control one shan't fall
stability for everyone

Gentle emotions comforts soul
as one peers to heaven above
promised renewal is His goal
words spoken come to all with love

Snowy Delight

Wintertime brings a solid glow
Branches of ice they do now show
With trees all made of crystal glass
Shows superior winter class

He brought all this beauty to us
Opened our eyes with love and trust
Snowy days filled with winter art
Happiness for all from the start

Faith in Him and His loving ways
Brings us love and joy we do say
Hills and valleys beautiful white
Smiles and laughter our hearts delight 

Winter will pass by all too soon
Spring blossoms will come in full bloom
Memories of snowy delight
Will stay with us throughout the night

Within One's Mind

Where I was hidden within a mask
unable to move ahead to tackle my own task,
sealed with feelings so the world couldn’t see
pretended life was perfect, but it wasn’t for me

Body and mind captures deep a darkened hole
wanting to explore, but the mind was not whole,
somehow, feelings sealed in its own captive crate
protects my soul, from its wrath before it’s too late

Looking around at others and their well being
afraid to take a chance, so the eyes may start seeing,
wonder why my ways can’t grow beyond its own wall
questions why it can’t come out of its shadowed hall

Hidden so long a comfort zone took control
today will pass; my thoughts need not take a stroll,
excuses shout, ‘I shan’t walk my journeys new path
tomorrow I say that’s the day to conquer my wrath'

Tomorrow the dark drawing that lies ever still
angels encouragement bring strength and goodwill, 
nourishes life on that carries patterns of self doubt
thoughts swarm wildly rush swiftly to come out...

Winter freeze chills to the bone
sudden drops to the twenties
what a shock to the system
and downer to the brain

Winter cold covers the ground
all comes to a sudden stop
what a shock to the greens
and downer to their roots

Winter is low point to earth
around the corner is hope
what a shock we went through
and downer we endured...

Spring brings beautiful growth
temperatures rise from the sun
warm the frozen greens and roots
Mother Nature keeps her promise
