City Garden

th

Not often is there city quietness
Really wonderful peace
No neighbor’s craziness
No noisy equipment blowing leaves

Traffic just a steady hum
No children’s laughs or screams
No music loud with drums
Or, skateboard kids in jeans

I hear the call of a crow
Another echoes back
Three sparrows sit in a row
Sweet song of birds no lack

City garden full of shade
Flowers in full bloom
Replete with butterfly parade
And bees that dart and zoom

The green always pleases me
The trees are a delight
But quiet adds a joyful glee
To all the lovely sight

Stillness of heart and mind
Gentle breeze tosses my hair
The presence of my God I find
Sitting in my garden chair.

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.

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
