Walking on Water and Oil

Oil slick image

An explosion of color

Parking lot rainbow creations

Nature’s art in my path

Syllabic Verse

Another beautiful oil slick I happened to see today in a parking lot. This one is an explosion of color. So unique!

Thanksgiving

Fall Oak Leaf

Thank you God

For the trees that wave

Good Morning

To me

As I gaze in wonder

At he whose wings beat wildly

While he drinks nectar

In the rain

The breeze brings

a brown leaf to greet me

Upon the window pane

He stops briefly

As if to say

We are both aged

yet

let’s keep moving, seeking,

Another day of life

As if on cue

future minded squirrel

scurries past

gathering acorns

supplied by the waving trees

Ah, so much life surrounds me!

I give thanks

For all that be

and for eyes that see

thru the window to the world

Just outside my door

Where all God’s creation breathes

And lives

And encourages me

To do the same.

Prussian Blue

Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” painting

A human error

A timely happenstance

Created a masterpiece

The Accidental Creation of Prussian Blue Pigment

(Image is “Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh painted using the color Prussian Blue)

I recently read an article stating how the beautiful color of Prussian Blue was created. This beautiful color was the result of an accident! A great reminder that sometimes mistakes we make can be for good.

Evolution of Writing


A human Finger writes in the sand,
Words a heart needs to say.

And a dry Bone held in a hand,
Draws word pictures in moist clay.

A Reed blowing in a Egypt’s land,
Is used to scribe events of the day.

And Romans, in their culture so grand,
Invent the Stylus, so they say.

Anglo-Saxons cleverly planned,
To write books using a Quill as a way.

Then upon the world’s Grand-Stand,
The lead Pencil’s design is put on display,

Yet, Pencil writing was undermanned,
So ink Pens were created in various array.

But, for all those invented, both great and bland,
The Finger is still used to text and sign today.
