Dreaming

Of warm soft breezes

Where colorful flowers

Dance to the sound of birdsong

Springtime

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

Swift To Listen

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

Silly is

As silly does

So silly does as silly

Says on a silly Saturday

So silly!

Trying to be “silly” today and this poem ended up as a bit of a “Tonque Twister”! 😊

Thoughts

Randomly in my head

Thoughts abounding

Think on these things

God’s word reminds me

I take thoughts

Captive in my head

Double Syllable Lune

Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
