Lacy Autumn Shadows

IMG_20171022_151838629

Tall stand of gold
Shorter clump of burgundy
Burst of orange, bright and bold
Surrounds an old dead tree

Its branches barren
Still reaching for the sky
Beaten, weathered, worn
Trunk blackened, gray and dry

Encompassed by such beauty
A lavish Autumn color-fest
Standing guard its apparent duty
Starkness its stunning crest

The explosion of Fall hues
Overwhelms the forest soldier
Wind strong, creeks its bows
Branch crashes just past my shoulder

Leaves rustle and swirl at my feet
A dance of yellow and brown
Sun peeks out warming my seat
On the bench below its crown

There I find a place of rest
In the lacy shadows of that tree
Talking to my Lord God of Grace
I’m safe, calm, loved and free!

Autumn Peeking

Treebeginngtoturn

Sun hangs in the sky so low
Even high noon seems a bit less bright
Trees display a rusty green glow
Flowers look like they’ve been in a fight

Nights are cool, mornings brisk
Warm afternoons still linger
Flocks of birds won’t take a risk
Mount up in flight sensing winter

Autumn peeking out more each day
Can’t hide behind summer any longer
Soon she will burst; a colorful display
A God-given golden orange wonder!

Dance on Golden Flowers

goldenflowers

Received this wonderful poem message from my God as I prayed and worshiped Him. May it bless you as much as it blessed me!

Walk in the green of the grass with Me
Dance on golden flowers
Look out at the spacious blue sea
Be with Me for hours and hours

My heart calls to the depth of your person
Into your soul I see
Come! Let us talk and reason
I have so much to share with thee

Observe! See the beauty of creation
Take time, share the moment with Me
I long for your quiet attention
And time when I’m all you need.

Stop for some rest and peace
Slow down so I can refresh you
Drink deeply from oceans of grace
Receive my gifts that renew you

Yes, dance on and on with Me
Never ever let Me go
How I love to bless you; see!
How I intensely love you so!

Autumn stepped out of summer

pumpkinfallleaves

Pumpkins, squash, dried corn
Yellow leaves, red and orange
Windy blustery days
Walking through a corn maze

Flowers fading, some brown
Fields a golden crown
Trees once lush now bare
Sparrows don’t seem to care Read more…
