Enjoy

Enjoy the little things

Before they slip away

Life a new day brings

Enjoy the little things

A bird that sings

A sunny day

Enjoy the little things

Before they slip away

Special Song

Pink Heart Sky
A sweet melody

In the quiet of the night

His song comes to me
His song comes to me

And night and day I shall sing of

His lovingkindness
His lovingkindness

That He commands in daytime

Is my sweet heartsong

 

Senryu Cascade

 

The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me—Psalm 42:8 NKJV

A Lark’s Song

A Lark's Song--Alouette poem about a Meadowlark
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015
(meadowlark from clker.com)

When I saw the meaning of this poetic form titled “Alouette”,  which is French word meaning ‘skylark’ or larks that fly high, .I was excited to try it out as it immediately made me think of the Meadowlark’s that live in the meadow near my home.
I love hearing their beautiful songs and I had  thoughts of writing a charming poem about them and their melodies, romantic, lovely, flutelike, glorious, words that inspire and uplift!
Well, upon researching the Meadowlark, I found  that their song is sung only to mark their territory!  It is not a love song, it is not a glorious song of joy, (as it seems it is when heard) it is just a warning song of sorts, one that let’s other birds know they cannot trespass on the land the lark lives on.  So, my dreamy thoughts deflated, I wrote a poem about them as best as I could. 🙂

A Guy named George

I met a guy named George today,
Quite a character was he.
97 years old,
And still full of glee!

He came into the room singing,
Every song mentioned he did know.
Verse by verse he’d sing them out,
He really stole the show!

Our Dance Team came prepared,
Joy and happiness to bring.
Yet it was we who were blessed,
As we listened to George sing.

George showed forth a true joy,
That only faith in God can bring,
As he smiled and encouraged all,
To just open up and sing!
