Message of the Silent Sun

IMG_20160519_204057109

Shimmering over the glistening water

Is the glowing distant sunset

Casting down a glimmering reflection

Of vivid yellow and gold.

Sitting above the shadowy tree line

 Appearing suspended as it hovers

While mirroring a watery reflection below.

Oh how since creation of this universe that brilliant orb

Has kept its assigned place through the centuries,

Decades and years; months, days, and hours.

The ancient star today remains in silent yet illuminating continuation.

As if prodding me to also persevere and endeavor

In this journey of life in quiet peace and hopeful celebration.

Becky’s Haiku: Remembering God, My Strength and Song

051

As I walk and stroll

Along, I think of God who

Is my strength and song.

he has created

 by his own power all things:

earth, the moon, and stars.

he has revealed in

his book, chapter and verse; he

made the universe.

Nothing good was made

Without him; through his word filled

With power from within.

He gives breathing life

To all men and eternal

Life through his own Son.

He is like a love

 Song singing deep inside of

Me and whispering.

He sings in my heart

Ever quietly and through

The gentle, flowing breeze.

I also hear him

By the lake and sea as the

Waves lap peacefully.

And in the forest

When the birds sing, I can’t help

But remember him.

Always reminding

Me of his love and peace, so

Content, I can be.

So today I will

Stroll along and remember

God, my strength and song.

Waiting for the Stars

018

The late afternoon sky resembled a

Tranquil and deep blue sea.

A hint of powder white clouds

Are floating by so effortlessly.

A crescent moon has settled on high

Like a heavenly nightlight in the sky.

The streaming sunlight continues to diminish

Being chased away by the encroaching darkness.

The air is cool as evening approaches

Reminding me to don on warmer clothes.

A quietness reigns in the brisk mountain air

With the soft chirping of a cricket choir.

I sat on the porch waiting in anticipation

To see all the stars that nighttime may bring.

Such a long time since I have seen

The stars at night so brightly shining;

Glowing and glittering in awesome wonder

While stretching above across the universe.

I shall sit and wait here in this still quietness

To see those twinkling gems before I rest.
