Air Dancer Long, luxurious limbs Dancing, elegant Stripped of all summer’s green finery evidencing once again that simplicity may be more beautiful Lithe and lovely on this cool winter’s day Glistening white skin shows so well Of your graceful beauty it beckons to tell To pleasure us, we mere mortals More beautiful than myriad dancers on Any stage Among winter’s cold breath your limbs Twist, turn & sway In time to a music only you can hear At the water’s edge I watch then Shed one small tear Over your beauty so exquisite My words would never do it justice Oh, the joy God must have felt Watching your lightest steps Above the solid firmness of His ground!
I could not resist this shot of the contrast between the brilliant light of the day’s sun on the dark surface of the river’s water. Have a blessed day!
A Study In Contrasts Would we know Happy without sad The good without the bad Light without the dark Or hot without the cold Or even God if we had Not eternal souls? I do not think I have The answer for such things Or can even begin to truly understand Only our God holds in His gentle hands The reason behind all such things intended in His eternity’s great plans.
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
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.
Golden Rod Wicked, wicked Golden Rod Without hardly even one single nod Your pollen’s unceasing furies Are unleashed With only one breath My eyes begin to weep, Of course, also the drippy nose I feel I sneeze From my head to my toes So, even though I am enchanted By your deceitful beauty's glances Within the earth so deeply planted Too close I dare not ever linger As you are for me the bringer Of each breath’s struggle And cause me to curse all the troubles your fall beauties scatter broadly in the air!
