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.

Waking to clouds and

 rain; started to get up but

 changed my mind again.

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.

Cloudy Cloudy

DCP_0911

Cloudy cloudy;

The sky is gray and pouty

Threatening to weep and rain.

Hidden from sight

Is the sun’s orbed light

As raindrops fall again.

Thunder, thunder

And flashes of lightning wonder

Peal across the darkened sky

Streaking crooked paths

Against the cloudy mass

In electric zigzag light.

Rainbow, Rainbow

Arching over the dewy green meadow

After a long and stormy night.

Inspiring chirps of gladness and hope

across the forested slopes

Beneath the blue crystal sky.

Becky’s Haiku: Lightning and Rain

IMG_20160420_100034375

Lightning flashed across

The stormy sky while rain dripped

And drizzled outside.

A dark and gloomy

Day filled with clouds and peals of

Thunder claps aloud.

Tis nice to remain

At home inside where I can

Watch the storm and hide.

I just attempted another of Ronovan’s Haiku challenge using the words “lightning” and “rain”.  For this and more Haiku challenges you can visit: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

 

Once Upon a Rainy Saturday

029

I searched and found a book to read once upon a rainy Saturday

When I didn’t need to venture out but could peacefully listen to the rain.

There’s something sweet and refreshing when just quietly resting

While listening to the pelting stream; it’s staccato rhythm almost caressing.

So I rested upon my soft bed feeling warm, content and snug

And I opened up a book; one that I have read just once.

As with hidden anticipation I read page by page,

I became enveloped and was transported to another place.

And lo, I also entered another era of time; sometimes the past or the future.

I then see another world which only my mind can view and capture.

And soon along the story line I find my ever persevering hero

And closely follow him through his trials and many troubles.

Oh how I do root my hero and become ever so worried

As problems abound and to succeed he must indeed hurry.

He must find his courage and discover his inner confidence

Before it is too late as timeliness is of utmost essence.

As I eagerly read along, I also quietly stop and pause;

I contemplate and wonder while hearing the drumming rain outside.

Then I close my ever sleepy eyes and take a nap for just a bit.

But soon opening my eyes again I find the page where I had left.

So page by page I read the story to the end

And relish in the final victory my brave hero has won.

Twas such a pleasant and ever delightful way

To spend once upon a rainy Saturday.
