Poem: Escape The Artificial World

Dear Cosmos, I must sadly admit. I have exchanged your brilliant sun with a cheapened artificial lamp. Oh the madness, what have I done? Dear Ancient Earth, I must apologize. For I have become very unwise. Trading the soothing bird chirps for a jarring electronic buzz. Dear Real World, I need your help. Instead of... Continue Reading →

Poem: A Tree Just Like Me

In the deep woods of long ago Where I once placed a seed to sow. Stood that burly red oak tree. It's branches so tall and free. Carved in wood rests my name. Winters ago but still the same. Growing like me in many ways. Weathering storms and shiny days. -Chad A. Damitz

Poem: Which Season Is This?

Look at that quaking aspen Dancing in the breezy sky. Soon it’s leaves will turn gold As the starry summer grows old. Look up at that dark-eyed Junco Singing among crisp blue mountains. Soon he migrates to a new home Into the cypress south biome. Look at that human in flannel Beholding the passing of... 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: Your Smile

The brilliant sun shinesBut not as brightly as yourWonderful smile. You are created in the image of God. Though the sun may shine a brilliant light, there is nothing greater to the Lord when He sees us smile. I truly believe that. He created the stars, planets, galaxies, giraffes, trees, birds, whales and more, but... Continue Reading →

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 →

Haiku: Stormy Waves

The sea grinds its teeth.The wind roars above the crest.Waves come crashing in. Have you ever been to the beach and noticed when a storm is about to begin? The sea becomes more intense as if it's grinding teeth. The wind picks up and the waves get larger. Soon, waves start crashing in. Life is... Continue Reading →

Poem: God Of Refuge

When shadows darken the soul And hope hides behind the horizon I run to the God of peace And my worries cease. When winter fails to bring spring. And dreams are lost at sea I cry out to the God of mercy My parched lips no longer thirsty. When flowers dry out in the heat... Continue Reading →
