Memories

“Laundry Day” paper collage by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

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.

Morning Thoughts

Painted rock says Welcome with bird singing

I arose early

But not before the sun

Opening the blinds

Revealed a gray squirrel

Burying his treasures

In my plants, (little rascal)

As the coffee perked

I watched events unfold

Sleep would’ve hidden from me

Maintenence man

Digging up the dead bushes

In my back yard

Birds chattering at stray cat

Cars passing by as

My little corner of world

Awakens to another

Day of life, unknowing what it

Will bring, we all grasp it with hope

Armored and Able

Lion sleeping

Believer be aware

Always put on your armor

Wear it daily

The lion sleeps

But he will arise again

So be on guard

Your great adversary

Is as a roaring lion

Wanting to devour

The lion slumbers

But he will again awake

So be wise

Be spirtually ready

Don’t be caught off guard

Always be vigilant

For the devil

Is as a prowling lion

Seeking to devour

Stand against him

Wearing the Armor of God

He will flee.
