From her mind the flowers grow
Letting all the townsfolk know
Wonders turn up everywhere
Brightly waving in her hair.

Surprised, I turned around to see,
In spite of everything I knew,
The world afresh with mystery
And animated, too.

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge where the prompt is “an anime-ted life”. With the use of a little anime-ted imagination hopefully these photos fit the prompt.

Beyond Worries

Muses are real
Like angels defending
Whose promises feel
Fulfilled and unending.

Impossible deeds
Make way for a blessing.
Obedience leads
Through trials caressing.

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

I just watered the plants and those geese, those many geese, look well fed and merry.

Potted Plants


Only heroes blessed with pain
Continue searching through the rain
For their loved ones lost somewhere
Finding rest on gifts of prayer.

Best of all the search is slow.
The other must decide to show
And meet him in that pouring rain
Where they may reconcile again.

Linked to dVerse Poetics. Amaya hosts and the prompt is to write a poem inspired by “a piece of music that has made you shed tears” . I am sure all of us have many to choose from. I picked Kentucky Rain sung by Elvis Presley and written by Eddie Rabbitt and Dick Heard. Here is a video with lyrics:


When veils are down then we may meet
The overlying mystery
Unless we’re busy frantically
Ignoring what was there to see.

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme to pick one of the three words: “seraphic, diaphanous or immutable”. I picked diaphanous although I’m not sure what it means.

One-Liner Wednesday – All that’s required

Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with the Lord.

Paraphrased from Micah 6:8. Linked to Linda G. Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday and linked to David Pawson’s video on Micah, where I first heard this line.
