Serenity

Picture of sun streaming through trees and Quote by Lao Tzu
http://quotes.land/nature-doesnt-hurry/

Sitting here on my couch

Gazing out my window

Things quiet and serene

Sunshine steaming down

Upon the daffodils

Birds happily feasting

As squirrel scurries by

Nature seems content

Not a worry nor care

Oh that we were there

Syllabic Verse

“Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu

This quote was on the tag of my favorite herbal tea bag. Ah, yes, that mankind could model nature…

Busy Bee

I seem to be obsessed

By all the colors of Spring

Bee in my bonnet

I can be found snapping pics

In random neighbor’s yards

Tanka

Today it was so nice out again I just had to take a walk down the block to check out all the neighborhood yards to see how much Spring growth had appeared.

Well I was pleasantly rewarded as one neighbor had an abundance of vibrant

crocus blooming. The bees and I were happy and one even paused for a pic😊

FLOWERS

Flowers erase frowns and

Lift spirits.

On days when the

World seems colorless and

Everything is dreary, flowers

Remind us to

Stop, smile, and seek beauty everywhere

The Rarity of Christ

Flowers, white, yellow, orange

As I search among the flowers bright

Looking for one unique and pure

I find it a most useless plight

As I search among the flowers bright

In all effort, as hard as I might

I do my search long and very sure

Finding tis only one truly right

As I search among the flowers bright

Looking for one unique and pure

Triolet

( For only Christ is truly pure and righteous and only He will last eternally )

Based on 1 Peter 1:24

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away
