Couldn’t resist taking some pictures yesterday along our greenway which runs beside a river. The fresh springs greens of the leaves and grass are just so much more intense this time of year. I captured a few of the wildflowers starting to come in along with a few new families I saw swimming in the river. Hope everyone has a very blessed Sunday and Praise God for the beauty of His earth!

Stumps of Glory

Stumps of Glory

Stumps of Glory
On display
All of what you might say
Oh, what stories
& of history
You must have seen

Rising still proud
Among the leafy crowd
You stand out
Your voice still
Clear & loud
Of longevity,
Paternity

Firmly still there
Younger ones 
May stare
But will not dare
To root you out
Your core essences
Still deep in a 
Blackened soil

So, take pride
In this your life 
I may pass & stare
As your beauty
Fills the blue airs
Above my head
To watch you 
Once again declare
The eternal, ancient
Triumphs of
All Nature’s Glories!

I got a chance to get on our river's greenway this morning. Hope you enjoy the photos & poem. Have a blessed day & Praise God!

Graceful Ladies (just a bit of whimsy)

 Graceful Ladies
 (a slight whimsy)
 
Graceful ladies
 All in a row
 Is it just for glee
 You choose to show
 Your whitest underbellies
 Shedding dark bark
 You simper & glow 
 From top to toe
 As you continue to 
 Strut in your underclothes!
  
 My Mama would be shocked
 Papa enraged
 If I dared to engage
 In such behavior
 I cannot do the same
 As you
 Nor dare I choose
 Such brave frivolity! 

The large old sycamore trees along our river greenway are even more lovely in winter when, without leaves, you can see their white bark even better. Have a blessed day & Praise God!
