Renewal

Scripture verse image for Isaiah 40:31

Waiting

Upon the Lord

Praying, hoping, believing,

All give me strength to begin

Again

Adverse to Autumn’s Arrival

Brick pathway with scattered pink rose petals

Today

In the garden

I saw hints of Autumn

And I’m not ready to bid Summer

Goodbye

Cinquain

I realized today that August is nearly over and that in about one month Autumn will arrive and I am not at all ready for that!

Summer got started here a month late, and I’m just not looking forward to losing those long warm sunny days yet.

Ah, but every year I fight a losing battle as Summer runs and Winter walks and I can’t do anything about it.

Memories

At times

Memories surface

Arising from a sight,

Sound or smell, and “Remember when…”

We say

Cinquain

I just took an online class to create this “Laundry Day” collage and it sure did cause me to recall many memories of the times spent hanging clothes out on a clothesline when growing up in the 50’s in Illinois.

In the

Middle of this chaos

Can we find common ground

Where all of us can live in peace

Together
