He Is There

Dad provides the worldly needs

Sits silently aside

Stalwart in his outward pose

Fights demons of his own

 

Leader of the family

Advisor, loving man

Mentor, coach, defender waits

To mend a broken heart

 

Wiping tears, encouraging

His child’s growth support

Proud of the accomplishments

Arms out to catch the falls

 

Father in the sense that’s true

Means more than DNA

Dance recitals, soccer games

Wherever, he is there!

BELIEVE

 

 

P1020537 (2).jpgBelieve, for He is there

To light your path through darkest days

And lift you onto Angels’ wings

To soar above the clouds.

 

Creation bursts, new life

Each Spring to coat the Earth with green

Varieties of animals

Know love is in the air

 

Rejoice! Renew! Give Thanks!

As magical events unfold

Have faith, in awe of mystery

Believe, His hand is there!

Cross to Bear

What cross is that you bear,

The one you chose at incarnation

To grow, to learn, to raise

Your place in heaven’s realm?

 

I know not what that is

Eternity awaits completion

Persist, sustain, excel

At Home rewards are yours.

I am Me

P1020551

“Make good choices,” 

Wise man said.

“What you do is

On your head.”

 

Blame not others

For your act

Own decisions

Write a pact

 

“Who I am, I

Choose to be 

Good or bad, I

Must be me.”

I Am You

Why does man divisive be
When all are God’s creations?
Image, likeness shared by all
Wrapped, unique, a gift to give.

Colors of a rainbow mixed
Each displaying human form
Like a field of flowers wild
Purpose, beauty, journey owned.

Ego drives the wedge between
Fear replaces love and trust
Drop the walls, extend a hand
Diversity enriches.

Hate destroys, devours man
Choose the path to harmony
Live in peace with fellowman
Source descended, I am you.

Family Reunion

Time shared, love exchanged

Bonding moments, reminiscing

Sibling rivalry, long forgotten

Roots run deep, forever loved

 

 

 

P1030532

Moving Ever Forward

Moving ever forward

Infinite Wisdom

Infinite wisdom, time and space

Concepts man cannot embrace

Spirits and guides, to you implore

Follow, trust with them explore

 

Faith in the vastness sight unseen

Purpose, path, what does it mean?

Miracles happen every day

Inward turn, you’ll find your way.

Lost Valentine

P1020454

 

I walk the beach, our favored spot

Searching for my love.

Pink puffs on blue, sun bursting through

Hopes are riding high

 

Be this the day I see his face

Finding his way back

To hearth and home, his family

Awaiting safe return?

 

I see a man.  He’s coming near

Bursting is my heart

The gait is wrong, the build not his

Smashed to smithereens

 

The gulls are screaming, “Silly girl.

Spirits walk with God.

You look for him, but cannot see.

Open up your mind.”

 

“A special date, a butterfly,

Feathers, pennies find

A rainbow stretched across the sky

Messages of love.”

Get, Rejoice, Contribute!

Holidays, depressed once more

Wallow in self-pity

Humankind is happier

Life for me a struggle

 

Ego taunts.  “Poor me,” it cries.

Stifling heart and logic

Spirit softly whispers love

“Precious being, holy.”

 

Spirits linking infinite

Time and space forgotten

Ancestors, angelic aides

Blessings freely given

 

Look around for gifts abound

Sunlight, trees and flowers

Creatures made by God’s own hand

Each unique and custom

 

Lift your heart by giving thanks

Ego kicked to gutter

Share what’s yours with fellowman

Get, rejoice, contribute!
