Introduction to Poetry Section

In our fast paced world, we need reminders to slow down and “smell the roses,” as some say. I have included some of my poetry as little snapshots of life. It is my hope that you’ll read them slowly, stopping at each one to envision the scene or ponder the meaning.

The “Moments in Nature” section is just that. No deep meanings. Just look at them as you might a photo, for pure enjoyment.

The “Life” section goes a little deeper. Ponder the meanings and reflect.

The “Spiritual” section expresses my love for the Lord.

May we all learn to slow down now and then and just enjoy, and learn from, our surroundings.

God bless you!

Poetry: Moments in Nature

1) Prisms of Jack Frost

send winter rainbows dancing

among trees and reeds

 

2) Golden evening rays:

like giant fireflies dancing

among the lacy pines

 

3) Warm, golden sunbeams

dance on high mountain tops and

sparkle on the sea

 

4) A snowy landscape

silent, on a barren branch

one male cardinal

 

5) Small, determined ant

struggling with its giant load

up the fallen trunk

 

6) One thin, golden ray

pierces the veil of blackness

on the stormy sea

 

7) Tireless, drifting sands

exposing some secrets while

covering others

 

8) Spider

Relentless weaver:

forever repairing that

which its prey destroyed

 

9) One silver flower

spotlighted in the darkness

by a thin moonbeam

 

10) Gulping greedily

insatiable deserts

devour the rain

 

11) Amid the charred forest

a budding fern at the base

of a hollowed pine

 

12) Bright orange ladybug

spots the white lily petal

in the emerald pond

 

13) Blue Heron on the Lake

Majestic gray fowl

heavy wings slicing the air

deep, echoing cry

 

14) Blue Heron in our Fish Pond

Wily predator

stalking our beautiful fish

Leave us, Blue Heron!
