Our latest travel was Spain. It was a wonderful experience. It makes us think of “where next?”

Roots originated in a land

Thousands miles from where I stand

Driven by innate wanderlust

Travel all over the world I must

Chances to visit foreign soil or home

Yet yearn to return to my NOW home

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

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.
