Please follow my new blog: The Lighter Walk and take the next part of my Walk with God with me!

Captured Memory

Mindful memories
Lingering sunsets
Beach waves
Quiet escape

Captured contentment
Awakened sunrise
Cool breeze
Stolen moments

Inspired beauty
Artistic allure
Bright splash
Colors alive

Canvas inspired
Images recalled
Brush swish
Composed splendor

Personal Pleasure
Desires explored
Broad strokes
Painted finish



Life Trees

Dying drying trees

Brown and lifeless


Rebirthing trees,

Waiting for new life?


Strong foundations

Branching off, crisscrossing,

Intersecting each other

New paths

Giving way to

New life.


Solid trees, grown upright,

Branches reaching upward

Unity in growth

red tree shendoah

Brown transformed to green



Beckoning us..

zoo woody path

Foundations rooted


Rich soil

Growing, dying, rebirthing


All reaching up

All branching out

All rooted in hope

Watered in love

Growing through faith.

School Day Haze

Early rise

Up with the sun

New clothes lay out

Nervous stomach flipping

Backpacks full

Ready to go

Watching the clock

Another year begun

New routines

Buses to catch

Carpools head out

Morning rush back in place

Busy halls

Classes to find

Subjects to hate

New friendships to be made

Lunch box packed

Searching for friends

Standing alone

Wanting to belong here

Sighed relief

Finished the day

Survived again

To repeat tomorrow
