A Leaf in Summer

Brown dried up leaf in summer

Out of place?

Out of season?

A misfit in my path?

Or a reminder sent by God?

A note

To awaken me to count the days,

Wasting not a moment?

“Redeem the time”

He says.

Butterfly Cinquain

“Even in our best shape we are a brittle piece of mortality. Your life is a breath, don’t waste it.” —LeCrae

Life’s Ordinary Things

Blue Bird singing, Red Rose blooming, Watercolor by Leonas Designs

Bird song,

First rose in bloom.

Enjoying the simple things.

Feel of rain, and the warmth of sun

Blessings,

Priceless, often overlooked,

Treasures are free,

And in our lives

Abound.

Butterfly Cinquain

Find beauty and joy in the ordinary things that life brings.

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse
