Life Is Brief

  Budding and growing in early Spring, shaping, then becoming colors of green. Rustling and holding tight, cooling, then shading in the sunlight. Changing and turning brown in the Fall, floating, then bouncing like a ball. Rolling and sailing in the wind, rising, then gliding once again. Twirling and dancing in the air, landing, then resting somewhere. Understanding and loving being a leaf, Accepting, then knowing life is brief.   March 14, 2020 Lou                          ...

When He Visits

    When He Visits   Writing then feeling, you touch my hair. Pausing and knowing, I have time to spare. Remembering then picturing, your dimples and smile. Wanting and praying, you can stay for a while.  Touching then comforting, you bring me your love. Thanking and loving, God sent you from above. Lingering then leaving, to Heaven you, must go. Understanding and saying, I love you so.  Smiling then typing, you have empowered me. Finishing then reading, a book our story will be.   Lou March 4, 2020        ...

That bucket of ice water was nearly as big as you, but that didn’t stop you from dumping that water, and I still remember your amazing laughter, Together we have played in my backyard, and I watched you swim in my...

I Lost Me

I Lost Me I lost a deep desire, with a brightly burning fire. I lost the will to be,  the truth inside of me. I lost a yearning to be much more, but then faith led me to a new door. Opening the door to a beautiful sight, finding me in the glowing light. I lost me, but now I can see, I was not lost; God was holding me.  He gently put my feet on the ground, but surprise-filled me once turning around. Glowing embers burned brightly at my feet below. God placed on new logs then gave them a blow. The logs began to flame as a new fire grew, but beyond the flames, there was something new. A path...

Those Big Eyes

Those Big Eyes   Those big eyes, they sparkle and dance, searching the room with just a glance. Eyes with long lashes slowly blinking, make you wonder what is he thinking. Big eyes that are innocent and sincere, Projecting peace to all who are near. Those big eyes trying to fight off sleep, fill hearts of eyes watching with love so deep. Big eyes filled with sweet love, assuring all they come from above. These big eyes of an angel unaware Come from God, so beautiful and rare....
