Pink Path

Pink Feather on sidewalk

A pink feather in my path

I know not from whence it came

Some say it’s from an angel

Or perhaps pink flamingo

Neither makes sense to me

Tis a pinkish mystery

Syllabic Verse

Today I happened to see this pink feather just laying right in the middle of the sidewalk. No pink flamingos around, or angels or kids wearing Indian Headdresses or Pink Boas, so it’s a curiosity. I am keeping it for a bookmark 🙂

Well preserved

At His right hand

Pleasures eternal

Joy filled earthly life path

Is mine

Cinquain

(Poetry based on verses from Psalm 16)

Preserve me, O God:

for in You do I put my trust.

You will show me the path of life:

in Your presence is fulness of joy;

at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Of Plans and Paths

Path

An unexpected crack in my plans

Puts me on a path of imperfection

I must keep myself from slipping

And with new eyes, begin again

I can’t let my plans slip away

I must now patch the imperfection

That arose and caused me to have

An unexpected crack in my plans

With new eyes I search for an answer

That will help me smooth out my plans

To keep me from a happening that

Puts me on a path of imperfection

As I avidly search to find the answer

I come upon one who offers help

He extends His strong hand, I grasp it

I must keep myself from slipping

My kind strong Helper leads me to new places

Places where I can find perfect plans

Good sound plans created just for me

And with new eyes begin again

My Future

park pathway
The Lord has future plans for me that are good.
I trust in Him, for I know He will act.
He has plans that are exact.

He will give me an abundant life.
I do not have to worry,
or be in a hurry.

He will provide for me,
As He provides for the birds of the air.
I can depend on His care.

Therefore, I will delight myself in Him,
and trust in Him, for He does guarantee
the desires of my heart He’ll give to me.

As I trust Him and acknowledge Him,
He will direct my paths and make them straight,
And they’ll lead me right to Heaven’s gate.

My eye, nor ear, nor heart, cannot even imagine
what He has prepared for me,
Here on earth and in the Heavenly.

I have faith that He will reward me as I seek Him,
and love Him with all my heart, mind and soul.
That is my future, that is my goal.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)

Yesterday’s Path

Yesterday's Path
I chose to walk with Yesterday

Leaving my present glade of time

I gazed at memories

I stood upon regrets

Mired in the past

That I couldn’t change

Misery
