Changing Seasons #Bible #ourworld #war

 

a touch of cherry

Blessing comes in the form of peace

safe haven while war rages about

Blessing comes in refreshment

sparkling waters flow in time of drought

blessing comes in the form of life

leaves remain green though nothing lives

blessing comes in the form of provision

 there is enough when resources are destitute

~MDW

 

Are you seeing the seasons changing? Life (presently) seems to be battered by storms of all types. You saved and planned for the future and most of that is now ashes crumbling between your fingers.

Look at the world from above. What was once blue and flowing is now a brown stench of an orb.

God promises life, peace, and an unadulterated stream even as everything is caving in. He will not turn against us during this time of warring and corruption. He promises safety and to replenish us.

Jeremiah 17: 7-8 says:

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”

Touched by a promise #haiku #poetry #photography

This month we have enjoyed the inspiration of Gary Gay and his beautiful haiku:

touched
in the darkness–
by a snowflake

(c) Garry Gay

fall leaves heart

touched by a promise

hope flutters to earth

shaped like a heart

Each Written Word #poetry #photography

Each word was a thread
an interwoven part
tears like dew drops
 from a broken heart
*
Each word was a plea
silent call to you
catching the phrase
before the wind it blew
*
Each word echoed love
tumbled in the waves
polished over time
waiting for the day
*
Each word a duet
a  poem in the dust
 inscribing now my fate
your embrace, I trust
*
Each word an inspiration
of stories that I live
 inked is the promise
etched upon my skin
*
While penning, what does a poet seek ~ Fame, understanding, love, expression?

The Heart of the Sea

Thunderous waves crashed

on a tender heart

her quiet plea

don’t tear me  apart”

*********

The spent wave

gently caressed her worn soul

healing  the pains

taking no more toll

*****

Embraced by calm winds

whispers  in her ear

it soothed and spoke

“yes you are so dear”

*****

Rocks were firm

like a strong arm

protecting against

threats of  distant harm

****

Smile in the sunrise

promises of  hope

precious moments by the  sea

kites, castles, and boats

Sensual

The softness that her shape suggests

beckoning the wondering eye

to linger

stay awhile

***

The sweet taste -just one sip

hoping for one kiss

or maybe

two

***

the whisper in his ear tonight

a gentle word

promises that she might

have

his attention
