Garbage Garbage floats in the air spewed forth from violent mouths everywhere Swirls around my head Attempts to invade my dreams as I lay on my bed! Media mouths belch forth refuse it is a form of abuse to grab our attention to hold our senses in detention Done simply for a paycheck their money! Leaders stand before your eyes and outright lie Be careful what you allow into your mind Do not let filth or garbage waste your precious time! There is a holy truth spoken by a Living Righteous God to us He is most willing to give His true Life So be most careful at all times What you feed into your minds!
Here where I live, it is hot & humid. After riding my bike in the heat this morning, this haiku came to mind. Hope everyone has a good day. Praise God!
Loss What is this sense of loss Of a deep sadness, Despair Then I raise my head To look at You & You smile! And my heart is even More beguiled And enticed To follow You But I am stuck On the other side of An uncrossable chasm For I know on my own I cannot Even begin to start To conquer its deep gorges A dark fog envelops My mind & heart Then someone touches Down with a hand It is Your Son of Man His blood paved the way Because I was oh so lost Until He reached across So on this dark side I need never stay Alone, rejected digressing From your eternal blessings Christ is that bridge That eternal ridge Of hope & joy For everyone to cross Over into God’s love You do not have to sit in The darkness of eternal loss But you must take that first step Reach for the outstretched hand Of the undying Son of Man!

Leader All around varieties of life Are abundant Diversities of even people & not to be redundant Diversities of ideas Differences can be okay But without orderliness Structure of some kind We put ourselves at risk For chaos Government, a leadership Is needed Organization always has And will require A leader This earth is no different Life has always been set up To run this way & to this very day Good leadership is still craved But we have always from the Beginning Had an excellent, the best, Perfect even, A One, so winning Glorious & Shining A living, breathing God Creator Around whom all Diversities of life revolve There could be no better Than this One In harmony together With Spirit & Son
But we rebelled As the ancients tell So now you have a choice To follow the light, HIS VOICE
Or alone & On our own We can continue to follow The mad disorder Chaos & confusion Its dark rebellion, As without HIM We get swallowed up & blindly lead To our own destruction

Today was Turtle Day! on the greenway where I ride my bike. Normally, you only see the turtles in the water or on rocks sunning at the water’s edge. But today, they were right at the greenway. I caught a tiny, tiny, baby one in the middle of the trail, a large grandfather glaring at me from inside his shell and a medium sized one right at the edge in the grass. I guess they just felt like socializing with us intruders into their territory. I did not dare to pick one up because here in Tennessee we have a lot of snapping turtles so you don’t want a finger close to their mouths.
Just threw in a couple of pictures of some red clover that has come into full bloom just now. Have a great day and Praise God for the beauty and variety of His earth!
The First Calm It happened under the skies Of the very first dawn Rays of light breaking Placid horizon in yellows, Pinks and reds It was the first Calm A new world, pleasant To the eyes and soul Broken out of deep, dark Nothingness By ancient words and voices told In a Holy Book Life exploded Upon a spinning globe Of dirt, air & water Animals, man & plants To each by a loving hand Did the Creator grant Relationship With Himself, The Ones who stirred The darkness Into life Nothingness Into something Desired to associate Fellowship With our forms of dust Only asking for a return Of love, respect & our trust This was the first Calm This perfected peace Between all forms of life And the Creators Between all of Their creation & Themselves There was not a hint, scent Of strife Until man, Supposedly the highest, Decided to rebel And follow the wrong voice Made the ultimate mistake Available, the worst choice And everything fell Plants, animals, earth Spun out of the original plan Subject to terrors Never meant or intended By our Creator’s gentlest Of hands And so we lost All of us Paid a dearest cost To suffer in pain, Showed disdain for the Ones Who made us And so in tears we lived And lost The First Calm
