Let Me Hear

 

Let me hear again your sweet voice

and the subtle sound of your gentle laughter.

Oh, to again see your smiling face would

fill my heart with awe and wonder.

And to once more take a quiet stroll

together along the old field road

while enjoying the quietness of the eve

as blows a soft summer breeze.

Oh, to also sit quietly by your side

while the day peacefully transforms to night.

Soaking in the warmth of your love

as tender moments silently slip by.

How I wish I would have known

that was the last time we would speak on the phone

Chatting away below that silent, watchful moon;

How I regret hanging up too soon.

The only comfort I now have is

a picture in my heart and soul

of you living a wondrous life

tending to the Lord’s beautiful garden

in the realms of God’s heavenly kingdom.

Happy Mother’s Day

to you, Mom,

living in glory and splendor of Heaven

At First

At first, the sun ascended the winter sky.

the day then declared, banishing the dark;

the deep hours of persistent night.

At first, the new snow fallen sparkled

under the light of the shining sun

as if brilliant diamonds were

dispersed in the white frozen surface.

And soon a solitary hare and a squirrel

jumped and ran about on a

creation of ways that interweave

across the ice-crusted pale ground.

At first the oaks, the elm trees,

and the trees of maple,

removed bare of their clothes,

their perfumed autumn garments of resin,

stood resolute to guard this silent scene

where, in the end, there remains

a soft calmness across the ghostly drifts

of twinkled whiteness.

At first a search in the quiet mind:

the trip begins of the thoughtful one

where the heart leads the soul to a

place of relaxing peace.

In the Beginning…

In the beginning, the sun arose in the wintry sky;

as the day brightened, it chased away the deep

dark hours of the lingering night.

In the beginning, the new fallen snow sparkled

beneath the gleaming sunlight

as if glittering diamonds were

scattered on the frozen white surface.

And soon a lone hare and a squirrel

hopped and scampered about

creating crisscrossing paths

across the white barren land.

In the beginning the oaks, the elms,

and the maple trees,

stripped bare of their garments

of resin-scented autumn leaves,

stood guard over this silent scene

where, in the end, there remains

a gentle quietness across the drifts

of whiteness gleam.

In the beginning a searching

journey starts from a wistful

heart and leads the soul to a

place of restful peace.

Becky’s Haiku: Strong and Heart

 

Whenever I am

Hurt, God makes me strong again

And lifts my faint heart.

Another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “strong” and “heart”. If you like word challenges and haiku’s, then I invite you to also accept Ronovan’s latest challenge at this link and have fun: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

 

Ascend

Last night, I let my heart and mind

Sink low into futile depths

of hopeless misery

as the streaming sun

 dipped down

Below the far-off horizon;

under the darkened forest

Of resin-scented trees.

But today, I awoke and did rise

To watch that ancient orb of light

Climb steadily upward

filling the sapphire sky

over the same forest now

Richly crowned in brilliant jewels:

Golden, amber, and hints of

Ruby red autumn leaves.

So, with a prayer to the Lord,

Creator of heaven and earth,

And hope I heard from

 his everlasting word,

I let my mind and heart

ascend

to the awesome

heights and wonders of

God’s never-ending kingdom:

Filled with His

Glory, splendor, and majesty.

Why should my Heart be full of Cheer?

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky

Where no stormy clouds appeared

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Twas a silent blustery wind but dry

And no wafting sounds could I hear

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

No birds to witness nor bee or fly;

Also, no ominous foreboding to fear

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I then began to wonder why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky.

While my eyes upward climbed

Into that lofty, arid atmosphere

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I continued to contemplate why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

This day was bitter cold and dry

As expected this wintry time of year

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Draped in the cold sunlight

I stood on the land, frozen and bare,

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

Banks of snow, gleaming white

Still remain here and there

As the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I pondered and wondered why

My heart should be full cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

A cold chill crept up my spine

Thanks to the frigid weather

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

With a start, I suddenly knew why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky:

I realized my Lord and Savior is why

for he promises to always stay near

As I gazed and gazed at the fluorescent blue sky

And the orbed glowing sun had journeyed high.

A Christmas Poem

IMG_20151226_125850093

Kiss and taste this Christmas season;

Enjoy quiet moments with God’s Son.

Remember and keep in your heart

How God promised his Son from afar

To descend from the glory of heaven

And dwell with sinful and erring man.

He arrived as a babe born in a stable

Where a manger of hay was his cradle.

He lived on earth to teach us about heaven

Where all who believe will live with him.

Baptized and touched by a descending dove,

He came to share with us God’s never ending love.

Though he died on a cross he also rose again

And has returned to the realms of heaven.

But as the Holy Spirit, he descends

To live in the hearts of believing men.

For all who choose to joyously believe

And this eternal gift of God has gladly received,

May your heart be filled to the brim

Of everlasting Christmas blessings from Him.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
