Are You?

Dandelion growing in cracked dry ground

Falling through life’s cracks?

Or are you a ground breaker?

Growing in the hard places,

Blooming where you’re planted,

In spite of dry times,

Letting nothing hold you back,

From reaching your goal?

Modeling tenacity,

Like teeming dandelions?

Choka

A Fool Says:

Joker, altered playing card
Altered playing card ATC BY Leona J. Atkinson 2019

Speaking diddly from

A heart filled with jesting

Foolish abandon

Senryu

Only fools say in their hearts,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!

Psalm 14:1 NLT

In a Mirror

Puzzling refections

Living in this earthly life

Parcial, incomplete

His ways imperfectly seen

Until the time of perfection

Tanka

Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.

All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

1 Corinthians 13:12-13 NKJV

Cloudy Days

Clouds

Promises

Of sunny days

Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.

Each day summer’s warmth is cut short

It seems.

Cinquain

This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.

The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.

Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.

Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.

I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!
