Best Gift of Books

books

Avid reader, my daughter as a young child

Books and books gabbled down like wild

Nursery Rhymes were memorized by five

Short stories, chapter books into them she dived

Wonderful world she wanted to explore, from

Beautiful images in her mind had stored

“1000 Places to See before You Die”

Takes her eagerly fly into the sky

What treasure you can give to a child

Books that take them into the “Wild”

Daily Prompt: Avid

Feeling Cranky?

 

Morning.sunrise 2

Cranky person is like cranky engine that

Needs motor oil or fluid for transmission

When feeling cranky or irritation

If stomach is growling, check satisfaction

Toss and turn in sleep pattern

Count the blessings, listen to soothing sound of the ocean

~ ~ ~

Cranky person is like defeated being

Churning, entangling, and exhausting

Maybe someone is inconsiderate of him

Overdone it and step on his toes

Maybe a situation is so demanding

Too many ends for him a grab a hold

~ ~ ~

First gain physical strength, then

Calm the mind and emotion

Tomorrow is a brand new day

His strength enables a blessed progression

Daily Prompt: Cranky

Setting Goals

Life without a goal or destination

Like wandering with blindly eyes hidden

Unrecognized when we achieved, even small

Puzzled the reason why we hit a wall

Reached a dead end wondering where we’ve gone

Setting goals with the eyes in your mind

Trusting Him who can see far beyond

He will hold your hand and guide your steps

Reaching the height higher than what you expect

Daily Prompt: Blindly

Healing from Above

images45

The offender never apologize

The inflictor will only deny

The sword of tongue so sharpen

The stabber laughs with his knife

He lives on merry go lucky

The hurt, the wound, the confusion

Caused by one with no conscience

image

The healing of the wound

Never comes from this person, but

Comes from letting go

As hard as it might be

Forgive him, set him free

Only then

The hurting heart is relieved

Ready to receive the healing from Above

Sunrise in Reed City, Michigan

Sunrise in Reed City Michigan by Ramona Seath-Lubke

The big ball of fire behind

The silhouette of trees,

Raised up its head and

Greeted the earth with

all its warmth, brightness and energy.

Its ray colored the sky with

red, pink, purple, blue and orange.

Signaled to the beloved people

The hope of a new day.

Honest Life

letting-go1

Life is a journey of progression,

When going forward in the right direction.

Smooth sail is not a guarantee

For a life of conflict free.

When we hide our faces in the sand,

Denial is a detour or motionless stand.

Natural force may drag us to regression,

Slide backward with no discussion.

To fight the battle, we must first lose;

Defeat the pride, but win the honest life.
