Greatly Surprised

Amazed

At all the wonder

In the world around me

I took time to look for it

And saw

New Year—No Fear

Moses and Red Sea

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Don’t look back, look at Me

Stand still and you will see

Deliverence! Free you’ll be

From that chronic pursuing hoard

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Triolet

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. Exodus 14:13

Dear God

,Carpet of fallen leaves

Do you see the real me

Beneath the heavenly skies

Leaf covered path

On my daily walk I pass by and over so many fallen leaves, some noticeable, some not. Some freshly fallen are filled with beautiful colors while some are withered, lifeless, or hidden beneath others.

It causes me to think that they are like many of us in this world. Some of us are more noticeable than others, perhaps more lively, active or attractive while others might be older, less active, or perhaps feel insignificant or hidden because they are covered in worries or burdens.

Just like the many leaves they may wonder if anyone sees the real them.

But the truth is that God does.

He sees us all, for that is one of His names.

In Genesis 16:13 it says “So she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, “You are ‘God who sees,’ because I have truly seen the one who looks after me.”

Hagar was a runaway who was alone in the wilderness with her child, she figured no one cared about her and she thought she and her son were going to die—alone….but God saw her and He spoke to her and helped her.

Matthew 10:29 says that not even a sparrow falls to the earth without God knowing about it, so I am thinking it must be the same for leaves and people too. He sees us all.

Everbody matters

For the clear truth is written

He’s “God who sees me”

Truth or Fiction?

Things are not always as they seem.

What we see may not be what is.

Sometimes eyes play tricks,

And our mind does also.

We need to ask ourself,

Is reality

Truly what

My eyes do

See?

Seashore Sunset Senses

Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon, photo by Vivian Marcin 2018

Breathing in so deeply

Scents of seaweed and crisp air

As gulls seranade

And ocean foam caresses

Sand covered toes

Sunset glistens like gold

Shimmering on waves

That meet rocks and waiting cheek

With a salty kiss goodnight

Choka

A Rebellious House

Closed door, sorry we’re closed sign

Dwelling in the midst

Of closed eyes, ears, and minds

Rebellious house

Shuttered ears are deaf

To the truth knocking

Closed eyes can’t see the truth

Through shuttered windows

Mutinous minds existing

Behind hostility’s doors

Choka

Poem based on this scripture:

“Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.” Ezekiel 12:2

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 20
