The Lone Sycamore
She stands tall and proud
limbs long and outstretched
stripped of her veils and imagery.
Balanced and poisded
rooted in her purpose
beautifully naked against the
winter gray sky.
Does man stand as tall
against the winter …
In The Garden
In the garden I hear the birds,
their sweet and lilting songs.
In the garden I see the trees,
limbs reaching to a clear blue sky.
In the garden I feel a Spirit
filling my heart with …
Where would we be without the rain?
Drip, drop, split, splat
mist as fine as angle dust.
The torrents, the pounding
the thunder, the roar.
The gentleness, the coolness
riding on a breeze.
Lifeblood of man, bird and …

then you live with the leaves
it’s a law Mother Nature decreed.
You sweep them, rake them
and burn the great piles
there’s always an abundant supply.
A rainbow of color
Sweetness in the air
softness to the touch
Joy to the soul
Light to the spirit
