The Farewell

Summer skies evolve
into Autumn greys
extending limits
of no return

Chilly winds dictate
a cloak of caution
in return giving security
against uncertainties

Comforting glances
just remnants of fabric
past garments of familiar
caresses and smiles

Melodies of heaven
beckon a weary soul
stanzas reach between realms
constricted in earthly struggle

love gathers on every side
farewells channelled through
hearts and tears that release
robins song GRACE she is home

I Dream of A Garden (But for a Moment Wings To Fly)

Stroll with me and take my hand
I’ll lead you through my world
tiny favours of little waves
perhaps the song of a bird?

Look-! the sumac is in full bloom
the fragrance brilliant with colour
golden finch play in the meadow
in heart I run and pick a flower

The wheel chair is now my throne
these four white walls my home
so thankful when a friend stops by
but for a moment ~ wings to fly

~

So many lonely lost souls sit for hours day after day,
watching and waiting for someone who never comes. This world of
dementia ~ loneliness needs to be shattered with compassion and
time taken to brighten their day.

November Winds ( Cloak of Mercy)

Last of the leaves

cling to life

although the earth is calling

it’s chilled and needs

covers of colour

layered of warmth

a blanket of Autumn

~

Composed with ease

they flutter and dance

to the song 

of November winds

tis like my heart

when lit with love

it sings with grace

~

Winds of November

now bare the tree

branches now exposed 

vulnerable yet steadfast

perch for weary wings

graced by sparrows

celebrate given life 

~

Last of my will

clings to self

I hear the Saviour call

the chill of snare

in need of prayer

layered by faith

a blanket of strength

~

Winds of November

warm my soul

with promised slumber

 life born of spring

no chill extends 

the soul is cloaked

His mercy covers

~

Amos 4:13

For behold, He who forms mountains and creates the wind And declares to man what are His thoughts, He who makes dawn into darkness And treads on the high places of the earth, The LORD God of hosts is His name.

“But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jer 17:7-8 (NIV)

Hearts Desire (Dreams that are to be)

The heart strolls

through Autumn paths

scuffling through fallen leaves

scattered thoughts

drift through the mind

of a love that

holds no exceptions

knowing that every

breath is determined

journeys mapped

planned with purpose

crisp brittle leaves

dissolve with steps

reminds the heart

not to borrow

from tomorrows sorrow

all is required

is what to live for

so simple

is hearts desire

for all dreams

that are to be

calmly rest

within the Master’s hands

Creation (Celebration of the Seasons)

Amazing how the world began

Vast amid such darken space,

The wonder of infinite creation

How stars were named and placed.

 

Every creature precisely wrought

Through author precision form,

All earths creatures great and small

From dust to life were born.

 

No greater wonder to take its place

Within the seven days,

Creation of our mighty universe

How our God chose to display!
