Alone my strength is weakness,
Like mist to fog the mind.
Through fresher eyes I realize
I’ve wandered with the blind.

The trees in morning sunrise
Stand tall to smile in rain.
The waters show from down below
Spring calm will come again.

Interesting Buildings

The bad we do won't keep us out.
The good won't get us in.
The buildings shine and leave no doubt
That all that's left is to begin.

Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Prompt with the theme this week of “interesting buildings”. Also linked to dVerse Poetry Form where the quatrain is being featured.

New York From the Empire State Building


Leaving vengeance to the Lord
Helps me to forgive
And His mercy moving toward
Us helps us both to live.

Linked to dVerse Poetic Forms. I am hosting and the form is the quatrain, a four-lined poem or a poem containing stanzas of four lines each. Also linked to Debbie Roth’s Forgiving Fridays.



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.
