I’m not sure of the weather where you are situated at this moment, but rumor has it, Spring is right around the corner. Since this may appear doubtful…depending on where you ARE situated, I thought I’d share some poetic inspiration about the most elusive season…


Love Query





Well, today is Valentine’s Day and yesterday morning I wrote the poem I am  sharing today. Words have been coming less often lately, but I am grateful when God inspires words from within. One of the songs going through my mind this week has been “Good, Good Father”. We sang it for worship at church Sunday. You know, it’s a funny thing about how God weaves together our faith lives in time…how important it is for us to gather our imperfect selves together and sing, pray and hope in the One who is Love. How He holds us together through the joys and sorrows we will know in our brief lives…and how he counts our tears as precious…He never turns away.  No matter how many injustices we suffer, may we remember He’s a Good Good Father ….always.


I pray this poem is a blessing to you today!



The Truth About Flowers

I’m in the habit of sharing a few words of attempted poetry here on Tuesdays. I link up over at dVerse, a place for poets of all kinds, to mingle. For love of words and lack of perfection, I just do it. The doors open at 3 PM Eastern time…I kinda like it there when I can hang out a bit and take a little break at the Pub. There are a lot of really inspiring writers sharing…
join us?

The Truth About Flowers

The flower
by neglect
and died…
but no one noticed
they just walked by
busy with 
their own agendas
pie in the sky
they failed to 
the petals
growth stilted
all sides
 pressed in
the very 
 pressed out
stepped on
walked over
leaving faint aroma
and stain
Once full of life
now dry
memory faded
sweep it away
sweep it away
under the carpet 
where hearts lie betrayed
the truth about flowers
flowers aren’t
 always displayed
but their beauty fleeting
tenderness bleeds out
grows brittle
with time
and neglect…
one moment 
flash of time
remembered no more…
