Behold the beauty of God’s fragrant rose ~
See subtle winds brushing petals there.
Gently, in Love’s garden she grows,
Quiet as the whispered prayer.
Carefully, each hue chose,
And the perfumed air ~
In these, He shows
Love’s great care.
Sweet rose,
fair.

Sky’s Clouds

IMG_4493

ೋღ ♥ ೋღ

As sky’s clouds float gently along,
The whispering breeze sings her song.
The scent of flowers wafting past
Brings back sweet moments clung to fast.
Bird’s call from their assembled throng.

Memories of love deep and strong
Drift as sky’s clouds, all summer long.
Held tight till the wren sings her last~
As sky’s clouds float.

Tears upon the rose don’t belong;
The birds, they sigh knowing its wrong.
A sun-kissed horizon’s shadow is cast
Trying to outrun fall’s cool blast.
I’ll bring your memory along~
As sky’s clouds float.

‘Neath Sun’s Rays

tumblr_mlbfrrgnx01s2warvo1_500

ೋღ ♥ ೋღ

I walked alone for many days
Choosing the world and her ways
Until one morn, ‘neath rays of gold,
Your whisper warmed this heart grown cold.

No longer hiding from Your love,
I heard beatitudes from above.
In gentle tones, You removed my doubt
With all that I can’t live without…

Your Word so true

Your Presence near

Your Spirit speaking

Your Love so dear

You warm my days and soothe my nights;
In every moment, I find delight.
So hem me in, behind and before~
Let me walk without You, nevermore.

Once imprisoned, I sing freedom’s song,
As I rise up on wings of dawn.
Saved by Your unending grace
The day ‘neath rays, I saw Your face.

Life’s Canvas

IMG_4185

 ೋღ ♥ ೋღ

Across life’s canvas bright and bold,
Or gentle hues of pastel blends,
Each color speaks of love so true
In nature’s dance that holds no end.

From stately mountains capped with white
To flowers blushed with pink’s embrace,
Each stroke of the Lord’s loving brush
Is a glimpse of Heaven’s grace.

Yet who are we upon this earth
To behold sun’s splash of yellows
Or multi-colored butterflies
Greeting flowers with their “Hello’s”?

We are His beloved children
The ones He paints for night and day.
The smiles He brings delights Him
As we dance in the world’s array.

So embrace the greens of springtime
And the blues of the ocean deep;
Breathe in each colorful season~
Feel the spirit within you leap.

The Narrow Path

tumblr_mjve0mZfVd1qao10ko1_1280

ೋღ ♥ ೋღ

Contemplating amazing love,
As evening falls on the narrow path.
The depths of Your love, I can feel~
Here, safe from the prowler’s wrath.

To know and be known at twilight
In this sacred hour of prayer~
In moments of sweet retreating
I lay down each earthly care

And in the morning, fresh with dew
amidst the hush of a brand new day~
You hold my life within your hand
As  glory pours forth in dawn’s array.

It is there you speak of Your great love
On the narrow path to Your throne~
In morning prayers, I hear You whisper,
“My child, you are never alone.”

Healing

tumblr_mnjqquws5U1rsewelo1_500

 ೋღ ♥ ღೋ

There is a longing in my soul
and words written upon my heart~
the deliciousness of memory
and bitterness that rips apart.

Each can tear this heart asunder
Dancing between laughter and pain;
Words chiseled deep within my soul
Remind of the facts that remain.

Though I may never unlove you,
It is my mission now to survive.
In new words, I find my healing
And feel hope now coming alive.

The lessons learned were bittersweet,
A tattooed heart, my souvenir;
Releasing the pain, I shall cling to
Times my longing soul shall hold dear.
