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...

Our Temps are Going to Rise!!!

a big '34 degrees' tomorrow
Hey, this is warm compared

All week our

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

Baby Jesus

Love comes together this time of year
Christmas spirit touches our hearts
time now slows to hear the cheer
lights look forward to the new year

Smiles come quicker than before
hearts are happy full of cheer
wish happy holidays at the door
beautiful moments this time of year

Many remember the day He did come
a manger where He laid now was warm
angels sound heavenly music to some
announces to all our Lord has been born

6 Days Til Christmas...

People you meet along the way
wish happy holidays sweetly they say
with joy and smiles upon their face
strolling the avenue with a quick pace

Shopping and busy in the store they go
gifts for family they search high and low
store decorations are beautiful to see
bring happiness with a joyful glee

Holiday season brings peace and joy
people celebrate the birth of a baby boy
our savior came to save the world
he watches over every boy and girl

Go about your way and shop till you fall
but never forget the meaning of it all
the birth of our lord he loves us so
waits in heaven one day we will go

Play with Snowballs ~ Think of Spring!

Promise of snow comes this way
as winter seem slow this year
some laugh they say that's Ok

Others, winter can't come too soon

they cheer for the beautiful new season
it's just around the corner they croon

Each year we deal with the cold wet snow
playing with what falls in our pockets
create snowballs throw fast as they can go

Soon we'll see the buds peek to the sun
spring flowers will delight and cheer us all
but, dreams of snowballs brings happiness...

as the cold is forgotten by everyone

Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Love consumes those of faith
they call to Him in prayer
Awesome is the moment 
all know He will be there

Wind swirls spread His truth
to people who will listen
Brings peace to His world
morning wakes with glisten

Hallelujah Hallelujah

All sing praises of Him
voices loud and clear
Joyous are His people
they know He is so dear

Hearts full as people wait
together share faith in Him
He knows all will come home
those who believe..surely win

Hallelujah Hallelujah

Earth Has Housed Love

Beauty that surrounds all who choose to see
brings gratitude for the life that was given to live
Time moves swiftly with touches like whirlpool
swirls of tender motion that bring gentle shivers

Morning light shines upon a land that waits
a simple thaw is yearned for just once more
Grasses reach for strength that is upon them
they yearn for daylights time clock to remain

Gentle winds caress the now barren branches to
move in a silent direction to a no where promise
Silent bare growth wait the new birth of a season
that forever comes to repeat itself year after year

Sun now returns to its evening bed that waits
rest is needed to consume duties for tomorrow
Birds take flight to their homemade nests
they will cuddle together with secure security

for earth has housed love for all ~ one more day

The evening is brisk as stars wait for dawn
clear skies for all to see beyond the heaven
quiet walks in ones heart thoughts flow beyond

Hope comes to one who takes their quiet time
arranges life to flow in the right direction
smiles become one who drifts into subline

Ever lasting truth becomes ones way
learns with trial and error to understand
it starts at birth for some - they say

THE life puzzle design

As the World Moves On

Quiet are the thoughts of the mind
one wanders within their own being
gentle were the movements as one
strolled the paths of wonderment

Questions consume the trail of thought
as to why the world is what it is today
for the memories of yesteryear are real
days of gentle hours of thought and growth

Or was it really -
maybe the mind hasn't moved with time
one became stagnant for the feet refuse to walk
as the world progressed to a modern mode

Ordinary reminders of years gone by
the reality of what was is no more
for modern generations have captured us
spinning the level headed into confusion...

as to what it is to be - now and forever

He see your sins...He forgives you anyway
He hears discontent...He forever loves you
He gives direction...He leads you on a path
He waits for all of you...He holds open arms
He speaks a message...He trusts you will hear
He trusts faithful to come...He prepared home

for those who see His glory
brightly before them...

Mother Nature Roars

Sunday morning is clear and crisp
frost has finally come for a while
not wanting it this past year but,
in the cards for it is nature's style

Love the cold clean winter months
seems to refresh all that is around
prepares the earth with lots of water
for spring buds to sprout their crown

Days are short - nights very long
going about ones daily chores
look forward to the snow just ahead
locking all the window and doors -

as Mother Nature does her thing
with her loud howling roars!

Love in the Heart

Love an emotion only some do feel
it is either there or it is not
blessed are we who carry the heart
for those who have not obtained it shall
parish forever with loneliness and hate
towards their fellow man
