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

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.

Refreshing Garden Reflection

1206101444

Branches perform ballet then hip-hop.
Trees raucously clap their hands.
Glorious wonders never stop.
God’s grace blessing my land.

Angelic hosts of scattered clouds
Drift quietly across the blue.
Peppers sway in scarlet shrouds
Against a deep green hue.

Fall flowers waltz in windy rhythm.
Shrubs put on a burgundy coat.
Birds sing a spirited anthem.
Bees buzzing a delightful note.

His Spirit reaches out to mine
As I delight in a brand new day.
Refreshing touch from heaven’s wine
Joins the sun’s bright ray.

My heart is bursting; overflow!
Such joyful all consuming sensation.
My Lord, my God, You are Beautiful!
Reflected in Your creation.

The Wind

girl-running

Warm all over.
Sitting in the sun.
Wispy breeze blowing
Gently moves my hair.

Unseen fingers brush my face
Right, then left, then gone.
Momentary whipping wind
Cooling head to toe.

Silken tapping on my arms,
Then stillness…
Nothing at all.
Surprise! Gusty joy! Gone again…

Stirring of the tops of trees.
Expectation in my heart.
But, nothing touches me.
Sudden quietness and peace.

Steady, now its steady
Strong, cold, bold.
Shivers, goosebumps down my back.
Lovely refreshing stream.

Now become a lacy shawl across my shoulders.
I’m resting in a calming wash.
My God I thank you for the symphony of wind
Such a beautiful reflection of Thee.
