The Great Coverup Searching For Smiles

Girl with smiling eyes wearing a face mask

Masks try to

Hide smiles

Yet our eyes

Overcome

Every

Place I go

I see masks

Cover up

People’s mouths

But not their

Smiling eyes

Syllabic Verse

Smiling with your eyes, also called the “Duchenne smile” or “smizing,” makes you look like you’re genuinely happy. Smiling with your eyes is hard to fake, and it helps to channel good thoughts so you’ll seem more sincere. Once you get really good at it, you can even smile  using only your eyes!

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

Oregon Weather

Paper collage of rain, umbrella, person in rain gear

It comes and goes

That smiling sunshine

I wish it would stay

Longer than a day

One day I’m in boots

The next in sandels

One day its raincoats

The next sunglasses

Oregon springtime

Its a guessing game

The New Normal

Social distancing, 6 feet apart

Talking with my neighbor,

Keeping our 6 foot distance,

Our words floating through the air

Land upon others ears

Across the courtyard.

Soon a 6 foot convention

Gathers. “The new normal.”

You Matter

Hand painted rock says “You Matter”
Hand painted rock by Leona J. Atkinson

Perhaps to the world

You have been deemed

As “Non-Essential”

But in God’s eyes we

Are all “Essential”

We ALL Matter to Him

Syllabic Verse

Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 10: 29-31 NKJV

Flu

Corona Virus symbol

Some words we like

Others not so much

These days it’s true

There’s one word

No one wants to hear

“CoronaVirus”

We can’t stop our ears

From hearing it’s sound

Or close our eyes

To block it from sight

But we can focus

Our minds to not dwell

On this dismal word

We can use prayer

To ask for our God’s help

And for His wisdom

And strength at this time

Syllabic Verse

Praying this word is soon no longer part of our vocabulary.
