Veggies vs Fruit

Fresh farm vegetables and fruit at the Market

Yesterday’s market

Abundance of fruit

All my favorites

Lavishly displayed

Berries red and blue

Cherries gleaming gold

Sugar kissed peaches

Fruitful paradise

Yet, vegetables

Were speaking to me

Not in audible

Like in Veggie Tales

But with visual

Attraction and scent

Vegetables spoke

Of their beauty

Fruit lover listened

Garden Graces

Tiny yellow flowers blooming in garden

Cheerful tiny blooms

A scattering of yellow

Birds plant flower seeds

Haiku

Not sure how these pretty little yellow blooms came to be here in my garden, as I didn’t plant them, perhaps the birds carried some seeds and dropped them here. I am not sure if they are weeds or flowers, but I am enjoying the sight of them as they add a bit of color to my otherwise non blooming garden area right now.

Created to Fly

Butterfly sitting on a flower

I hear the message “It’s Time”

Yet my butterfly wings won’t fly

I want to soar, be sublime

I hear the message “It’s Time”

I want to rise in my prime

I want to circle the sky

I hear the message “It’s Time”

Yet my butterfly wings won’t fly

Triolet

Butterflies were created to fly but did you know they can’t fly if they are cold?

Butterfly Kinesiology: Keeping Warm and Staying Aloft

I can also relate this to myself, in that unless I say close to The Son, abiding in Him to receive the warmth of the Father’s love, I will not be able to stay aloft to reach my full potential and do what I was created for.

Something to think about today as I sit and watch the butterflies flutter about my yard in the summer sun.

Beset by Remora

Remora, tiny sucker fish,

Tiny remora

Surrounds, holds me back

All my human strength

Not enough to overcome

Only blood of Christ

Can wash it away

Syllabic Verse

Remora is today’s “The Word of the Day” at Dictionary.com

See the definition and interesting origin of this word “remora” at this link:

http://www.dictionary.com/e/word-of-the-day/remora-2019-07-15/

In ancient times, the remora was believed to stop a ship from sailing. In Latin, remora means “delay”, while the genus name Echeneis comes from Greek εχειν, echein (“to hold”) and ναυς, naus (“a ship”). In a notable account by Pliny the Elder, the remora is blamed for the defeat of Mark Antony at the Battle of Actium and, indirectly, for the death of Caligula.[15] A modern version of the story is given by Jorge Luis Borges in Book of Imaginary Beings(1957).

A Leaf in Summer

Brown dried up leaf in summer

Out of place?

Out of season?

A misfit in my path?

Or a reminder sent by God?

A note

To awaken me to count the days,

Wasting not a moment?

“Redeem the time”

He says.
