Make a Wish

Dandelion Puff in Forest

In the forest green

Silky circle of lace is seen

Picking it I glean

A feeling that’s so serene

Suddenly I’m queen

Filled with wishes umpteen

A magical scene

Filled will sunshine sheen

Parachuting seeds careen

Past-Present-Future

Bridge
Life

Is short

Waste not.

Time is precious

Record memories.

Capture each moment

But dont dwell there, move on.

Fixate your mind on the future.

Wake every morning and proclaim: 

“The Past has no Present in my Future”

Etheree 

Thanks to my daughter, Laura, for the last line which inspired me to write this poem.

Taste and Trust

Bird at Birdbath
Have you tried the LORD? 

Have you experienced Him?

Have you taken time?

Taste and see, the LORD is good.

Have you reached out?

Trust and see, His blessings flow.

He is waiting for you.

Perceive who He really is.

Taste His goodness today.

Choka
Oh, the LORD is good! 

Just trust in Him and be blessed!

Taste and you will see!

Senryu

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8
