Endurance


We race with the hands
of the clock on the wall

usually in last place

like a slow, dragging crawl

 Everything must be now
instant gratification

when we should slow down

and feel appreciation

 Maybe what we’re waiting for
isn’t meant to be

It’s all in the timing

and not all about “we”

 If you’re a believer
it’s really up to Him

and what His plan entails

not just our personal whim

So exhale a little slower
demonstrate some tolerance

It’ll all come together

with just a bit of patience

He was so patient, waiting for me
to take some pictures~

Walking with Nature

Feeling the trail’s draw

we step deeper into solitude

embraced by the strength

of the bays

Only the occasional

 crackle of brush

breaks the silence

BEAUTIFUL EXISTENCE

Flowers bloom
Bees buzz
Red bellied robins sing
just because

Crickets chirp
Frogs croak
Butterflies gracefully float
around the majestic oak

Wind blows
Trees sway
Ladybugs save the gardens
hunting their prey

Earth moves
Ocean splashes
Thunder loudly rumbles
while lightning flashes

Nature entertains
Abundantly each day
Life’s colors and compositions
God’s gifts we praise
