Delectable Confection

Macarons

Sweet colorful treat

Never before tasted

Gifted by neighbor

Delight to the eyes as well as

Tantilizing to palate

Spring Senses

Spring wreath with flowers, bird and butterflies

Waking to the sound

Of a dove’s soft cooing,

My sleepy eyes delight

At sunshine, and the morning

Sounds of baby birds.

Taste awakening anew,

I touch life boldly

Smelling it’s fragrant winds that

Promise new life again.

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

Taste and Trust

Bird at Birdbath
Have you tried the LORD? 

Have you experienced Him?

Have you taken time?

Taste and see, the LORD is good.

Have you reached out?

Trust and see, His blessings flow.

He is waiting for you.

Perceive who He really is.

Taste His goodness today.

Choka
Oh, the LORD is good! 

Just trust in Him and be blessed!

Taste and you will see!

Senryu

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8
