Regrets!



Regrets!  I regard the snow
Fallen in frigid freeze
Clinging, gripping obstinately
To sub-zero breath and breeze
Yet, invites a welcome stay
To warmth, to hearth; home and heart
Retreat!  Into the sheltering arms
Of the One who won't depart.

This Moment's Breath



This moment's breath
Noted, how and why
The in then out
of air - necessity
Transforms being
Into otherness
Inhale, exhale
Breathing into wholeness.

Amen.

Mary's Heart



"Yes," she said
When angel hailed 
as favored one
"Yes," she said
Knowing the world
Stood against her
"Yes," she said
Soul magnifies
The Lord of Lords
Yes!

I Lay Before You


A teardrop of wax
Shed in the burning
Of flame, aglow
With a yearning
For answered prayer
I lay before You
In the light
All things are new
All is right

Autumn's Promise


Romans 15:12
And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; in Him the Gentiles will hope.


The leaves fall
Tumbling down
Dancing on wind
Pitter-patter
Like raindrops
Scatter glory
Twist and twirl
Descend with grace
Draw attention
Make their mark
Though now faded
Remembered well
The vibrant green
Once spring's face
Recalled, renewed,
Will come again
In hope, they will
Come again

Love's Fire



The tender part
The heart that cares
The love that flows
And freely shares;
That is my desire.
The tinder part
Of you, I see:
Think less of you 
And more of Me.
Set the world on fire!
