Times of Refreshment

Refresh yourselves

Come all you who thirst

All are welcome

Refresh yourselves

With the living water

Only He provides

Syllabic Verse

“…Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

John 7:37-38 KJV

Leaves at Play

Nature’s

Fall games

Yellow

Races red

Wind quits

No winners

Syllabic Verse

It was a fairly windy warm Fall day today and I enjoyed being outside just watching the wind blowing the leaves around. I missed out on getting a video of a group of leaves dancing as I didn’t have my camera ready in time but it was awesome to see them swirl and twirl together in sort of a whirlwind burst of air.

But I did capture another video of them looking like they were racing each other as a big gust of wind blew them along. Fun day! 😊

Oregon’s Six Thousand

We went

We lost our lives

We won freedom for you

We ask only that you not forget

Our deeds

Cinquain

Our local Christian church school that has a big grassy area next to their building implemented the idea of having their school children put up 6000 little flags to honor and pay tribute to the 6000 Oregon soldiers who lost their lives in all the wars.

I visited the display today and was deeply touched by how beautiful it was. Seeing all those little flags blowing in the soft breeze made me so thankful for the freedom we enjoy in our country and for those who paid the price to achieve it.

Mirrored

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

That kind of action I don’t foster!

Is that really me or an imposter?

I dont see my name on the roster,

But a resemblance I do see!

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

Triolet

While waiting for my grandson today I caught an amusing site on video. My daughter’s porch has a mirrored medicine cabinet sitting on it waiting to be carried into the house that apparently caught the eye of a little bird.

I sat watching as the little bird saw his reflection in the mirror and kept trying to figure out who that other bird was. It was very cute to watch.

Marching

Basking in the warmth of her sunshine

I walked awhile with March

Dreaming of hot summer days

Until she led me through a glen

Where winds blew cold

Thru shaded trees

Where Winter

Hid Spring’s

Smile

Nonet

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. —Charles Dickens

Forwards or Backwards

Go snow

Either way you say it

The meaning is the same

We dont want you around here

Snow go

Cinquain

A friend of mine used to say”There’s a lot of truth in jesting” and in this case it’s true. The poem may sound humorous but it’s meaning is real 😊 Snow be Gone!

Listen to the Lyrics

Some words on paper

Come alive and touch people

The alphabet will speak

A heartfelt message of truth

To those willing to hear
