Poem: Dawn Arise

Dawn is surely near But dusk entraps the soul. A twilight world of fear An infinite black hole. I do hear red birds sing. The rainbow truly gleams. But circumstances sting Shattering untold dreams. Nevertheless, I shall go To paint my hope in the sky. Seeds of joy I will sow Even If I don't... Continue Reading →

Poem: Dear Redwood

Dear Redwood, You were a sanctuary. A place of solitude To escape this loud world. But now the world is silent. Coffee shops and parks Aren't filled with laughter But signs for distancing. Stadiums are empty of fans Screaming obnoxiously. Cities are void of crowds. And smiles hide under this new tacky wardrobe. I do... Continue Reading →

Haiku: Ultimate Hope

God is our refuge.A firm rock in sinking sand.Our ultimate hope. The storms of life may try to knock us down, but God is our shelter. He is our refuge in a world of sinking sand. Our hope and trust is in Him alone. Praise the Lord!

Poem: The Cosmos Within Your Soul

Take a deep breath... And think about the cosmos. Planets encircling the sun. Galaxies spinning for centuries. Supernovas bursting in boundless measure Why you sit and rotate on this pale blue dot.

Poem: Dreams In Nature

Dreams drip from the weary eye Asking a million questions why Promises burned into ashes On a snowy wintry night? Dreams shrivel from the flower Asking a million questions an hour Why did the sun forget to shine On a dark and dreary summer day? Dreams hibernate underground Still asking questions until I found A... Continue Reading →

Poem: Do You Remember When?

Do you remember when We would ride our bikes Through the entire town Just to buy bubble gum? Do you remember when We would play baseball In the middle of the street Until the sun went down? Do you remember when We would play hide and seek And climb over fences and trees Until the... Continue Reading →

Poem: No Direction To Go On The Open Road

On the open road. No direction to go. No place to be.  Just the wind in my hair. The past behind me. Oh how I want to be free!  I want to go north. See the mountains climb. Feel the cold breeze in my face. Taste glacier pure water.  Smell the evergreen trees. Oh how... Continue Reading →

Poem: God Alone Endures Forever

Red rose petals wilt away. Blue moon silently grows old. Nebulous clouds fall asleep. But God remains, I am told. Mountains lose their youthfulness Ocean waves give up at shore. Lakes fatigue in summer droughts. But Jesus lives forevermore. Fierce lion roar fades in the wind. Human wisdom is snuffed out. Sun rays dim in... Continue Reading →
