Pink!

pink_sunset_by_evelivesey-d41dvei

It’s a beautiful rose
Color of a kitten’s nose
Precious lips of a babe
Tingling skin after a shave

Big wad of bubble gum
cheeks after too much sun
Glitter on fingernails
Pretty lacy curtain veils

Sky radiant at sunset
Piping on a bassinet
Flamingo on one leg standing
Happy puppy tongue panting

Fuzzy wuzzy circus bear
Cotton candy at a fair
Newly born piglet
Watermelon at a picnic

Little girl hair bows
Tulips planted all in rows
Warm glow of Mom’s cheeks
Soft words that she speaks

Dad’s strong yet gentle hug
Jesus’ heart full of love
Prayers going up to heaven
Knowing that I’m forgiven

Falling in a hammock of grace
This is the blessing place!

Fall!

Grateful Joy_z

Hazy light
Sun low in sky
Longer night
Summer flowers dim and die

Harvest of corn
Bales of hay
Fields look falorn
Pine trees sway

But, Orange galore!
Gourds and pumpkins abound
Woody fragrance I adore
Rusty red all around

Magnificent display
Trees painted many colors
Golden leaves at play
Zinnias boasting, crow hollers

Big leafy piles
Bright yellow and gold
Children’s smiles
Jumping in never old

Such beauty I see
Amazing transformation
Feel like it’s all for me
The wonders of God’s creation!

Another lovely Garden Day

butterfly-yellow-flower-monarch_484465

Green all around
Sun warms my toes
Distant airplane sound
Pepper plants in a row

Tiny moth flies by
Lits upon oregano
Bird takes to the sky
Bee can’t decide where to go

Palms waving in the breeze
Dragon flies gracefully dance
Neighbor lets go a sneeze
Line of marching ants

Thump! a ripe plum falls
Butterfly finds a yellow flower
Far away a mother calls
Behind a stately cypress tower

Lemon tree loaded with fruit
Bows to the ground
Lots of red tomato loot
No cucumbers to be found

Pool glistens in the light
Sparrow song bursts forth
Two flies pick a fight
Noisy crows head out north

Another lovely garden day
Filled with gifts from above
He pours out a joyful ray
As I talk with my God of love

At the Lake

Water slapping
Bird chirping
Whistle, twitter
Boat dock sitter

Children laughing
Soft breeze blowing
Bobbers afloat
Loud motorboat

Tall pines waving
Butterflies playing
Lots of rocks
Wet socks

Wild flowers bloom
Bees zoom
Giant ants scouting
Someone shouting

Sky so blue
Gorgeous view
Rustic mountains
River fountains

Flies riot
Suddenly quiet
I feel free
Sun warms me

Heart at peace
Sweet release
God’s presence near
His voice I hear

Whiffs of Beauty

OrangeBlossomFractal_AZDude

What is that lovely scent,
Blossoms of lemon or orange tree?
No, it’s much more than that;
Enticing, comforting, sweet, free!

The air around me is filled.
It wraps me like a shawl.
Glorious whiffs of beauty
Nothing’s like it at all.

God’s presence in my garden;
The smell of holy incense.
So close I feel I can touch Him
Like I’m resting on His chest.

Oh, what an amazing experience,
To breathe His wondrous perfume.
Joy and Peace overwhelm me;
His Love like drenching dew.

The grass suddenly greener.
The flowers electric hues.
The trees glowing life radiant.
I’m caught in His grandeur.

Too soon the fragrance fades
And the sense of His presence departs.
Now, a normal garden day.
Still, Jesus’ touch lingers in my heart.

Rain or Fair?

Gunmetal Clouds

Rain or fair?
Gunmetal clouds
Thick air
Intermittent sun

No breeze at all
Sudden gust
Hot then cool
Birds fuss

Tall trees dance
Chimes sound
Should I go in
Or, stick in out?

Quiet again
Clouds moving fast
Quite a show
Looking west

Suddenly warm
Storm passed by
No more alarm
Clearing sky

Each day special
God’s hand creates
Beautiful treasures
In my garden retreat

Precious Day

My Garden

Precious day
Flowers bright
Pink nosegay
Violet delight

Hazy sky
Streaks of cloud
Bird up high
Chime tinkling loud

Breezy warmth
Sun breaks through
Butterfly charm
Bright yellow hue

Peace abounds
God’s presence near
Comforting sounds
Surround my garden chair

Hummingbird twitter
Buzzing bees
Mockingbird natter
Creaking trees

I praise You my God
Lifting hands to pray
Your goodness abounds
What a glorious day!

Rolling Hill

Shock of Purple

Rolling hill
Jagged rocks
Emerald green
Sandy spots

Shock of purple
Flowers abounding
Electric yellow
Orange surrounding

Dark green shadows
Mossy ledges
Blackened boulders
Scruffy hedges

Wind sculpted oaks
Branches waving
Meadow in distance
Beauty amazing

Creation of God
Such joy to behold
Peace floods my soul
More precious than gold

By the River

1176280_10151930489236036_1135813638_n (2)
Rushing water
Sparkling cascade
Clapping, laughing
Dancing in white

Rollercoaster ride
Crashing over rocks
Wet shiny boulders
Glistening black

Swirling, foaming
Suddenly calm
Rivulets waltzing
Reflecting the sun


Washing the bank
Ebbing, flowing
Stick floating by
Leaf joining

Clear like crystal
Pebbles galore
Sharp jagged edges
Minnows explore

Glorious morning
Musical waters
A bit of heaven
Gift of the Father.

Spring!

Fresh air
Breezy trees
Sound of chimes
Buzzing bees

Smell of grass
Flower buds
Errant fly
Lots of bugs

Tiny leaves
Electric green
Birds sing
Robins seen

Warm sun
Kites up high
Laughter echoes
Clear sky

Tulip blooms
Fields of clover
God smiles
Winter’s over!
