His Countenance

Matthew 17:3 scripture, white light image

Blinding white

Like Lightening

Glistening

Reflection

His transfigured presence

Shone white as snow

Shadorma

(Based on scriptures: Matthew 17:2 and 28:3, Mark 9:3, Luke 9:29)

Reflections

My Dad 1943 US Army
My Dad 1943

In the spring of 1910 a new life was

Born in Sisseton South Dakota,

Just in time to be counted in

The Census taken April fifteen.

Roberts County gains another boy

And I, yet unknown, a future father.

A good man who would love nature,

Poetry, and baseball, a man

I would meet on a summer day in June

1944, when he came home from the war

To spend his time teaching a girl

How to hit home runs, name trees

By their leaves, track animals in

The woods, but not how to forget him.

Sonnet (Un-Rhymed)

In memory of my Dad, Erling Claremont Cliff, (4-4-10—1-1-85)

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.

Inner Reflection

Kindness in a person graphic

Kindness, a treasure

That’s outwardly visable,

Comes from within

Senryu

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness. —George Sand
