HER SEASON

The last sunset to grace her eyes

Brought her tears of joy

This precious gift of life was ending

In this she had no choice

But, oh, what delight she knew

From childhood to old age

The seasons that she’d witnessed

Blessed throughout her days

***************

And as her loved ones gather ‘round

To pay their last respects

She smiles as each one kisses her

And hugs her around her neck

***************

A whisper, barely audible,

To bid them all goodbye

As her heart stops

And she smiles down

Above from where she flies

Mind Storm… a Christian poem

When I enter the mind storm

For the battle of my life

Eternity hanging in the wings

Deep down inside

Burns my desire

And strength from the King of Kings

Mine is a future

He laid out the path

To follow and trust in His Word

If only this battle

Raging inside

Could be clear – but I make it blurred

LINE IN THE SAND… a poem of faith

Image Credit

I drew that line in the sand

But someone wiped it off again

So, I got down on my hands and knees

And drew it back where it had been

Image Credit

No sooner had I turned around

To glare back at the crowd

When someone started laughing

And someone else let out a shout

That line you drew it cannot last

No matter how hard you try

There’s a shadow cast down from a cross

Where Jesus had to die

Image Credit

But in His death, He took with Him

What should come as a surprise

Every sin that’s ever been

Along with every line

WEEKEND…a poem

The weekend is here

And it’s going to be full

With a garden to dig

And weeds to pull

My wife’s buying flowers

To plant, who knows where

Some over here

And more over there

I will borrow a tiller

To till up some rows

In hopes that my plantings

Will grow and grow

And as each day

Draws to a close

With a beer or some wine

In my hand, who knows

I’ll reflect on this time

God gives me on earth

And rejoice in the splendor

Of His beautiful works

REFRAIN

My veins are longing

Longing to be filled

Into expansion

To grow and share my all

And all that I can be

Gentle, small beginnings

Getting stronger every day

Soaking in the nourishment

Soaking up the rays

My color deepens

And with every drop of rain

I live

Until the Fall

Then I refrain
