I’m so sad  that the  summer’s done

It’s  leaves are falling one by one

The wind moves  slowly in the  breeze

While  sailing quiet  through the trees.

There  is a crispness in  the air

Relief  from heat  we’ve had to bear

Too  soon the winter  will  appear

To fill  the balance  of the  year.

Then  when the  dawn does  shine its light

That  emanates from  brilliant white

Reflected  there  in swirling  snow

You’ll  see the  season’s  icy show !

There is a noise I hear so clear

Of chaos ringing on my ear

Machinelike thumping banging round

External scraping on the ground,

The buzz of saws and screeching tires

A twisted mass of falling wires,

Oh what a sight this morn has brought

As city streets in storm are caught !

I often think the Lord is there

In every garden that we share

With odors that o’ercome the air

And seize upon our senses rare.

A garden is this magic place

In which God lends to us the grace

That brings a smile to each one’s face

Engulfing us in His embrace.

I wish that I could always be

Involved with such an entity

Like plant or flower, vine and tree

Within our Lord’s proximity !

I look outside, what do I see

A field of violets smiles at me

While over in the corner there

Two lilacs do their blooms compare.

Hydrangeas all like spreading out

They love the space and so they shout

“Hey, look at me, I’m gussied up

My blossoms fill your largest cup !”

Consider all the dandelions

They are the brighest of all kinds

And when they grow close to the ground

They’re the best cover to be found.

I’d like to think that flowers know

How much we love them as they grow

And keep themselves sweet as they can

In tribute to God’s love of man !

 

 

CREATION SURVIVES ( 2019 ) 2019/04/04

I’m often amazed by facts I see

Of how our Lord helps both you and me

And thus He tends our world from up high

In heaven as He is passing by.

While the leaves do fall and dissipate

On ground beneath, there hover and wait

For rains to fall on assorted roots

Where the winds wake up the tender shoots.

Cycles of life going on and on

A method we all depend upon

Such glorious plans that He provides

Assuring all creation survives !

 

 

 

 

 

WINTER BEAUTY ( 2019 ) 2019/02/12

The snow has covered all the ground

There’s not another soul around

Our world of white is drowning in

A swirl of ice and sleet and wind.

There is no color anywhere

Except for trees whose limbs are bare

And evergreens both small and tall

Whose silouettes display it all.

This winter beauty that we see

Will fade away eventually !

This world lies cloaked in veils of white

That floated down all through the night

The morning woke to wond’rous sight

All layered like ice cream delight.

The air so crisp, it filled each room

And chased away old winter’s gloom

Let’s pray the laughter will resume

As happy smiles begin to bloom !
