Becky’s Haiku: Touch and Miss

I reached to touch the

Sky; felt the lofty air but

 Missed the clouds up there.

I stretched high to grasp

A lofty dream but up it

Floated far from me.

Becky’s Sonnet: Waiting for the Sun

004

I awoke early one dark morn

And waited for the sun to dawn.

I lay in bed a bit forlorn

Yet anxious to see the gloriously rising sun.

Darkness wrapped around me like a knitted shroud

As I rested as quietly as could be.

But lo! Only gray billowing clouds

Through the slatted window I could see.

Yet still a dim light did appear

Ushering the darkness away;

No more murky shadows to fear

As deep night transformed to day.

Therefore, with a lifted heart graced by hope

I began a new day’s journey upon life’s emerging slope.

 

Wishful Thinking

004

Days filled with clouds and

Nights with rain; how I wish to

See the radiant sunshine again.

The vast sky is continually

Wrapped in foreboding dark gray

Through the night and lasting all day.

A break in the clouds

Would be a cheerful sight; oh

To view again the glowing sunlight

Lifting and softly dawning

Upon the tree-lined horizon.

And to embrace again the warmth

Of the orange tinted orb in the morning dawn

While it strokes and dries the rain soaked land.

But must be patient and quietly believe

 That again I’ll watch the flaming sun rise

As it journeys over the land and sea

Caressing the world in its warmth

Again as it gently evaporates

 The dwindling mist and rain.

God’s blessings are often that

Way; like soothing rays of hope that

Softly brighten a dark and cloudy day.

So perhaps I will see a hint of sunshine

While I travel through another day

And perceive a glowing ray of hope

To softly brighten my pathway.

Becky’s Freku: Though the Path be Dark Today

img_20160420_100257563

In the cloud-filled, dreariness of this day,

While the sunlight be dim along the way,

With Jesus I can still walk in faith

Though the path be dark today.

Although troubles brew and haunt my soul

And I feel empty and lacking a life purpose or goal,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

As the rain drizzles outside

And in my house I just want to hide,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Even as I awake in clouds of doubt

Wondering what my life is really about,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

As I gingerly step outside in fear

Wondering what new obstacles may appear,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Believing the sun will shine again

Evaporating the clouds and drizzling rain,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Choosing to trust that he is my light

Who helps me to see in the darkest night,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Yeah! With Jesus, I

still walk by faith though my path

is darkened today.

Becky’s Haiku: The Lord Leads Me

 

IMG_20160529_151609782

The Lord always leads

Me even though I don’t see

His hand holding me.

He does forever

Stay in my heart this moment.

This hour and all day.

Teaching and even

Guiding me in his love while

Sitting high above.

In heaven over

The clouds and the rain reaching

With his outstretched hand.

He holds on never

Letting go while I rest or

Walk this road alone.

Raining sunshine to

Brighten my way so I know

This day he has made.
