The warm outstretched tendrils,
Arrayed to adorn.
Drawing the soul ever forward,
Promising safety and warmth.
Illumination for life’s paths,
Piercing the darkness with authority.
Captivating in its effortless genius,
God’s awesome “Let there Be”…
The dancing shadows
Wind, trees, and afternoon sun
Stir whimsical dreams
Free soaring, anchored flight;
Tied to a tail of whimsical joy.
Willing servant to the wind,
To cares, an effective decoy.
Unaware of her rapid pace,
And frequently peering behind.
Glimpsing a sun-filtered silhouette,
Loosening string; a magical climb.
What memories will future years bring,
Of the once exuberant child?
Who flew red kites in the sand,
And inspired smiles with her smiles.
Grasping tight to soaring gem,
Which flitters as if trying to break free.
Connected by a cloth chain,
And a little girls’ dream…

Peer into the dark
With your piercing solar stare
Cancel by merging
Yet the darkness is still there
Joined in harmonious union
Separate yet betrothed
The darkness seeks to extinguish the light
The light fights the darkness’ stronghold
I wish I had a hammock in the sun, right now!
Where a soft breeze could brush against me as I lay.
I long to hear the rhythmic sound of braided friction in motion.
And to know the gift of precious nostalgia, born with each sway.
Want to cross over,
Past enchantment’s barriers,
To know the sun’s warmth.
Picture: My collection
God skipped a stone in the skies today
I witnessed its slow and stubborn fade
Soft and white were its remnants
Evenly spaced celestial accents
Time appeared to be suspended
By the smooth blue surface which held it captive
The sun retreated to make room for night
And sprayed the stones’ path with colorful light
I imagine God smiled, pleased with His fruitful throw
Sharing His delight with All underneath the “living” water He’s bestowed
