Spring’s Trumpets

Orange & yellow
Your colored voices ring 
So clearly
Displayed for all to see
Piercing thru to my heart’s senses
Oh the purity in your joy-filled glee!

Trumpets splashed, splayed
Spreading further outward
Declaring that beauty again of 
One more of our God’s filled days

I stand absorbing your attractions
So welcome from this world’s distractions
Down leafy vines toward the earth
You throw yourself, never hesitant
Oh, to sleep as you in a bed 
So deep & green & pleasant

So, I rejoice as on my way
I am allowed to watch
Your graceful heads sway
Within each passing breeze

Thank you, God, again
For the beauty of your earth
My day I am allowed to begin
Watching as You bring back spring
And the joy which only that can bring
Reminds not only of a physical rebirth
but that in each new reborn spirit 
lies Your own unspeakable worth!!

Love, Love This Time of Year!

I love this time of year! Everything is so fresh and green, almost a perfect lime green with all the little new leaves coming out. These were taken along our river greenway system again just this morning. The green of the plants was so intense even the reflections in the water looked green. The two Canadian geese looked like they were sitting on green glass! I hope everyone has a pleasant and blessed day. Praise God!

Fall’s Gilded Girls

In between the hospital stay and now my husband’s rehab clinic stay, I found a few minutes to take photos and write another poem. I hope you enjoy these and have a very blessed day. Praise God!

Fall’s Gilded Girls

Fall’s gilded girls
All in a row
Why would one ever think
In you resides no soul?
Your curly locks
Bright splashes of color
Adorn your heads
As upon no others

Some look at you and
See merely trees
But from only one glance
I believe is seen
The Spirit, the Soul,
If you please,
Of the one who designed
Your bright glistens & gleams

With a powerful hand and 
With the greatest of glee
Your bright glories were created 
By our God for all to see 
And to know that they are truly loved
From His all-joyful Heaven up above
So for our pure pleasure it can be found
To be placed upon your yellowed brow 
The brightest of creation’s most golden of crowns

First Blushes

I am blessed enough to live in an area of the world where we have all four seasons. The first blushes of autumn are just beginning with a few reds, oranges and golds in the tree leaves. I hope everyone can enjoy their autumn. Have a great day. Praise God!

First Blushes

First blushes
Are like
First loves
Are 
Exciting
Tingling from your
Nose to your toes

Like a drug of
Exhilaration
So are nature’s
First blushes
As season’s change
Just a first glimpse
Introduction,
Anticipation
Of something
Beautiful yet
To come

So as autumn’s
First colors
Come out to play
They remind that
Life is here to stay
This is a whispered
Promise
Of even more joy
On the way

But why or 
Maybe,
Perhaps
Autumn dies in 
Such fiery glories
Of raging oranges, reds
& golds
Because it will be
God’s fiery intense love
That ends all the struggles
For man’s eternal soul
ushering out everything old

So, as angels begin to 
Sing
Of approaches of winter
Their voices remind us
Another re-creation
Awaits from God
Re-created New World,
End of all pain, strife
Suffering
As we look into the face
Of our Resurrected King
He announces the return
Of mankind’s new Spring!

I was trying to catch the last of this summer’s wildflowers on our greenway system down by the river. The drier season of Fall has set in so the flowers are starting to fade away, but there’s always next Spring! I hope you have a blessed and good Saturday.

Not a Bad Way to Start the Day

Just wanted to show all the lush greenness along our walking greenway for one last time before it starts to fade. One of our neighbors on the greenway has a beautiful backyard with a pond which has a huge water fountain in the middle. Looking at all that natural beauty so early in the morning is not a bad way to start my day. However, it is getting drier here, and fall is starting so some of the plants are just beginning to wilt and leaves turn brown. I complain about the heat but then miss it when the winter’s cold hits. I hope everyone has a good day and Praise God for His goodness!
