As I Write My Heart

As I write my heart I find,

some poetry still living

as if from a cave, no longer dormant

a summer flower,

never fading, longing

for the sun.

P.S. I will share some poetry for the next couple of weeks.

Deer in the Forest

As I lift my camera in the forest, a quiet within me begins to surface

and a deer unthreatened looks my way chewing leaves,

I smile as the deer moves closer, I bow my head to her

in a greeting, do deer smile? our time is short lived…

for when I closed my eyes to lift a prayer,

within a second, she was gone.

Hearts of Gold

Since the dawn of our existence and even before,

Mothers have been pouring into us,

from their hearts of gold,

from their very essence,

forming,

shaping who we become

creating the person

God always intended

us to be.

It takes great courage and resilience to be a Mother. We should thank our Mothers for their continued bravery of loving no matter what. Let us remember too the women of all types that are hurting right now.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Notations

Our cherry tree is blossoming again, so for us spring is officially here! The vaccines are here too, so we can finally begin to move forward, even if it is slower than we would like.

I thought it would be a good time to mention a few things about my blog. Such as, I normally post Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with some on the weekends. However I’ve been adding a little more here and there simply because.

I once again want to say, all are welcomed here, regardless of your background, race, country of origin etc. except for bullies. No bullies are allowed here!

I don’t approve linking or “links” to my posts. I’ve had terrible technical difficulty with my faith based site, “Walking through Psalms” and I believe it is related to my approving these things in the past.

I don’t do awards anymore, I simply do not have the time to participate. They are fun though.

My wife and I are older, yet very much in love. A lot of shenanigans can take place in blogging. I avoid that as much as I can.

One time years ago a young woman sent me emails to flirt with me, and she included pictures! Fortunately I recognized it immediately for what it was – malicious. She was being malicious.

I could write a lot more today but I’ve decided it can all wait……..except for one thing.

Thank you for reading!

Wishing you peace.
