The Sanctuary

The towers in my cathedral stand tall,steady, stately as they sway; unaware of any turmoil which clenches, clutches and chokes. Tall, trim trees adorn with ornaments grand.Rubies of cardinals, aquamarine jays, amber breasted robins are only a few precious gems. Gaze upward, for solitude reaches higher than thirty or forty foot pines gathered in openContinue reading “The Sanctuary”

Wings

The call is long and lonesome, as he circles in rounds of rigorous flight. I squint to see his form drift on mild currents; a shadow searching for prey, predictor or partner? Power emerges from his pristine wings, talons sharp and curved to cuddle prey, aquiline nose -hooked beak- for tearing flesh or perhaps, tenderlyContinue reading “Wings”

Waters

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters. Psalm 24:1-2 Eddies formed along a rocky river bank;swirling in steady circles to shape winsome whirlpools whirling in flowing currents. A few spun ever soContinue reading “Waters”

His Call

He calls and repeats his call,it travels on the tepid breeze,encircles the weary woodland,rises up to crafty cumulus clouds,trails passed each blade of grassand falls into empty, murky marsh. He waits and waits even longer,his tune falls to silent, vacant realms knowing her image trails in his mind,lifts his head and rises high to listening,heContinue reading “His Call”

Spring Hope

If I could paint a landscape of spring,to reveal the magic it can truly bring,it would be of forsythia’s brilliant showwhere yellow blooms abundantly grow!Of a carpet of green after months of tan;cool, curly blades of grass, budding leaf,and new flower bulbs deep in dirty sand.Warmth in the fresh air as if to knowits lifebloodContinue reading “Spring Hope”

A Tale

Translucent wings flutter as stain glass beauties swoop and then soar for a meal;in days long gone another dragon spiecesspied the landscape looking for unique treasure other than pesky, tiny misquotes. White tailed rabbit nibbling! Emerald islands float, tufted succulentsbouncing, blooming, bursting forth in sun;a healthy meal at duck pond. Circular vegetation, a meal on watery floating plate,Continue reading “A Tale”

Easter Morning: a Resurrection

Months have passed like dawn and dusk,the year the world was unable to join to celebrate an event which changed history; not just history but one’s eternity. As morning sun rises in warm eastern sky,bird songs echo in the budding woodland,the air is vibrant with life as if a new bornhas been birthed; but it’sContinue reading “Easter Morning: a Resurrection”

Breaking Stillness

Still there’s a slice of iceencasing the marsh as glass;stiff, sharp becomes a screenprotecting you from prey.Visions of rich, dense duck weedand brown, earthy tuffs ofmarsh grass huddle waiting for cloudless sky.But morning chill tellsanother story of early spring. Buried deep you rest. With scentof spring playing games ofhide and seek; you find no aromaContinue reading “Breaking Stillness”
