Abstract or Fact

Two Images of grease on a grill. One original and one digitally enhanced

Don’t believe all you see

Things aren’t always as they seem

What looks real may not be

Don’t believe all you see

Could be false or reality

Could be true or just a dream

Don’t believe all you see

Things aren’t always as they seem

Triolet

My mom used to always say “Don’t believe anything you read and only half of what you see”.

I was reminded of this today as I took a photo last night of the left over cooled grease on my grill. I had cooked a hamburger for supper and when I went to clean the grill the grease and bits of leftover cheese had formed an interesting pattern, I thought, so I snapped a picture and just for fun put the image into one of the photo enhancing apps I have to see what would result if I edited it a bit.

The result was quite awesome!

What transformed was somewhat of a celestial looking image I thought. Certainly not something that looked like grease and cheese on a grill! 😊

Goes to show mom was right. Things aren’t always as they seem or look like.

What do you think?

Branches dancing wildly

Whipping winds lashing

Tree standing firm

Rooted deep

Unshaken

Deep rooted

Firm standing tree

Lashing winds whipping

Wildly dancing branches

Swaying leaves

Un-broken, Un-battered

Deeply digging roots

Strongly holding tree

Functioning Faith

Mustard seeds

Planting mustard seeds

On my knees, moving mountains,

Breaking down barriers.

Senryu

Believe and Pray:

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20 KJV

Faith

Faith alphabet art sign by LeonasDesigns

Not once, in all times I’ve cried,

Coming to you broken,

In sorrow on bended knee,

Heart burdened with pain,

Not once, have You not heard.

Yet, of certain things

You’ve not replied though

In tears I ask again and again.

My heart knows as I walk

Taking steps my eyes can’t see,

That someday soon You will answer,

Fulfilling things hoped for

By this trusting soul, for

Not once, have You not heard.

Sonnet (Modern-unrhymed)

(Based on Hebrews 11:1 and 2Corinthians 5:7)
