Seeds of Hope

Dandelion puffs floating

Floating in the wind

Wish carriers

Carrying someone’s dream

Syllable Lune

Sitting outside, lately I have noticed many white puff balls floating by, some even landing on me or close enough to catch.

They always remind me of my childhood times of picking dandelion puffs and blowing wishes in the wind.

Rumors

Wispy feathery clouds in the morning sky

Some words spoken

Float past us like wispy

Feathers in the sky

Nebulous clouds bringing doubt

Uncertainty and confusion

The New Normal

Social distancing, 6 feet apart

Talking with my neighbor,

Keeping our 6 foot distance,

Our words floating through the air

Land upon others ears

Across the courtyard.

Soon a 6 foot convention

Gathers. “The new normal.”

Swift To Listen

“Listening Ear” Art by ©️LeonasDesigns 2020

Floating in the air

So many sounds surrounding

The Listening Ears

Swiftly capture each word

To bring them into the heart

Tanka

We have been created with two ears and one mouth, therefore,

“…be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:” James 1:19 KJV

Revival

Leaf in the wind drawing
“leaf in the wind” drawing by LeonasDesigns

My mind wasn’t focused on You

Like a leaf in the wind

It swirled and twirled

And got carried away

To wander in places of doubt

Coming to rest on the fence of indecision

Caught in the fear of unknown

Where it began to wither away

Without purpose

Until the force of Your divine breath

Caused it to stir, awaken, and break free

To soar to higher places

And sit in the heavenlies

At Your feet

Soaking in the truth of Your word

Now it’s a mind renewed

To do good works

And walk in Your Spirit on earth

It no longer wanders aimlessly

Blown by winds of uncertainty

For it awaits resurrection

Where it will live forever

On the tree of life.
