Day is Awakened

Moon-waning-gibbous-in-daytime-Aug5_2015SS.jpg

Beauty of that sliver of moon
Soft white against the pre-morning sky
Lovely azure turning clear blue too soon
Echoes of a mourning dove’s cry

Silence that wraps like a soft blanket
Interrupted by a cat’s meow
Sudden breeze, trees make a racket
Day is awakened, night takes a bow.

Sun arises glistening peach gold
Bird chorus erupts in a welcome song
Quiet transformed to noise, loud and bold
Workers pounding; saws whining strong

Still nothing can disturb the peace I feel
Remembering the still awe of sunrise
Such beauty my God reveals
Everyday He creates a new surprise.

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!

Rain

rainy-wallpaper7

A smell; a fragrance in the air
A sense, something on its way
A feeling in my bones
A distant sound, barely heard

Pitter pat, pitter pat
A clink, a clang
Tap, tap, tap
Pitter pat, pitter pat

Tires on wet pavement
Rushing winds
Drumming on roof tops
Grass glistening green Read more…

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…

Secluded Place

sandy-beach-north coast

Oceanside walk
Rushing sound
Waves talk
Crashing all around

Sea birds shouting
Insects buzz
Sandpipers scouting
Gulls fuss

Secluded place
All alone
Suddenly peaceful
Watching white sea foam

Mind clears
Troubles depart
God overwhelms
Joyful heart

Singing praises
Fall to the sand
Hands lift praises
Simply can’t stand

Worship resounding
With nature’s symphony
Love abounding
Such glory I see

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

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.

Sunshine

Garden chair
Table
Tea
Cat napping.

Warm sun
Healing
Restoring
Lovely blanket.

Like a scarf
Falls cross my neck
Cozy
Comforting.

Head to toe
Wrapped
Held
Aglow.

Shoulders drenched
Getting hot, cool breeze
Soothing rays
Joy.

Today reminds me
Reminds me of my God
His love
His love is like the sun.
