ABC Poem: Spring

Arrival of fluttering and twittering birds

Blue jays, robins and flocks of Canadian geese.

Choir of joyful honks, tweets, and staccato chirps

Descending and floating on a gentle, warm breeze.

Ever minute leaflets and sporadic

Foliage of soft lemon green.

Grass blades sprout and appear;

Hope takes silent wing

Infiltering the warmer air.

Jagged tree limbs gently swish and sway in

Kindred orchestrated choreography.

Long slender branches in dancing display;

Moving, waving rhythmically.

New aromas permeate the wafting wind;

Over the fields and upon the meadows

Purple and white lilac blossoms

Quietly add their sweet-scented seasoning.

Red tulips; also, white, orange, pink and yellow

Softly paint the land in a colorful rainbow.

Tender green clover and dandelions sprout

Underneath the warm rays of a sunbeam.

Vivid blue, the sky illuminates its hue

While ushering in with joyful

Exultation this

Year’s new season of Spring;

Zippered between the start of summer and

Winter’s reluctant and blustery end.

Walk in Faith

 

Walk in the firmness of faith

And not in nagging doubt;

Walk in unwavering belief

That Jesus is Lord and King.

Walk in steadfast hope

Even while climbing a slippery slope

Of troubles and tribulations

Through this earthly life’s

Wilderness and desert lands.

Walk in trust and confidence

Knowing that all the Lord’s

Plans will ultimately prevail

And that his unfathomable

 Ocean of love will never fail.

His never-ending love which can

Reach the furthest star and

Touch the bottom of the deepest sea.

And fill all the voids of earth and space;

The boundaries of his love,

No one can perceive.

Walk in sheer delight

Of God’s revealing light;

A beacon leading us the way

To the road he has prepared today.

Yes, walk in faith never doubting

That God of heaven is holy and supreme.

And that his son, Jesus is indeed

 Lord, Savior and king

Who will reign for all

Eternity;

Walk in faith.

HE IS RISEN

 

Holy celebration on springtime morn:

Everlasting is Jesus, Our Savior and Lord!

In heaven now where he forever reigns:

Salvation he has brought; praise be his glorious name!!

Resurrected from the grip of death;

In hope he lives, ever victorious.

Son rises and shines on us early Easter morning:

Eternal life he is gladly giving.

Now and for all eternity,

He lives inside the hearts of all who believe.

Happy Easter

Freku: CHRISTMASTIME

Christians near and far

Herald the birth of our Lord;

Remembering the singing angels,

Immanuel laying in a manger;

Starry, most holy night.

Traveling wise men also came

Many miles beneath the guiding star

Across the desert mountains and the plains;

Seeing at last this most holy sight.

Tending shepherds watched

In reverent wonder and awe,

Mary and Joseph quieting kneeling;

Eternal king and savior peacefully sleeping

 while bringing us his goodness and light.

Remembering the

Savior’s birth who brought us hope

and peace here on earth.

Merry Christmas to all!!

Becky’s Haiku: Broken and Over

 

Through time, dreams fade and

Are broken; hope dares you to

Start over again.

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.
