Today My Heart Remembered

Thanking God for the gift of memory. Through this precious gift, my heart can still see, hear, feel, and embrace the wonderful ~ treasures of my childhood. Dedicated to my dear mother who suffers with dementia. I will recall and visit your memories, I will tell you your stories so you can visit your precious sun-kissed days.

Today my heart remembered…

Echoes
childhoods past
footprints
in summers
sweet green grass
lazily walking
through fields of wheat
feeling the touch
cool earth on my feet

Untroubled laughter
still winged in the air
carried away
by bluebirds so fare
the songs ~ the carefree
rest in the clouds
released gentle rains
bring rainbows aloud

Splashes of dreams
still ripple in lakes
carried by driftwood
my heart it awakes
reflections in ripples
bless me in poem
through arbor of verse
softly I roam

Sun-kissed days
still shine through greys
stealing small doubts
vining the way
warmth of small smiles
that melt ice of fear
feeling the love
bringing memories near

Blessings
this season
embossed in snowflakes
a gift from my Saviour
His purpose ~ no mistakes
chapters of life
He allows me to share
carefully chosen
gift wrapped with care

Echoes 

childhoods past

footprints

in summers 

sweet green grass

lazily walking 

through fields of wheat

feeling the touch

cool earth on my feet

 

Untroubled laughter

still winged in the air

carried away  

by bluebirds so fare

Splashes of dreams

still ripple in lakes

carried by driftwood

my heart it awakes

reflections in ripples

bless me in poem

through arbor of verse

softly I roam

 

Sun-kissed days

still shine through greys

stealing small doubts

vining the way

warmth of small smiles

that melt ice of fear

feeling the love

bringing memories near

In loving memory of my dear “Grandma and Grandpa Peters” who brought to life so many beautiful bright rainbows in my childhood! Merry Christmas! I love and miss you both!

Tender Footings

Nickels and dimes of worries 

scatter like leaves of the white birch

 

Water droplets on still oak leaves 

dance in delight at our footsteps

 

Rushing river steals smiles 

carrying them to our laughing brook of tomorrows

 

Song of the chick-a-dee guides our passage

through splendor scope of God’s creation

 

Thirsty for fellowship ~ bonding 

quenched by promise of the bee’s quaffing 

 

Hidden caves beneath the rivers 

explored with tender footings

 

Weight of captures around our necks 

released by magnification 

of God’s love through nature

 

Bluejays wings keep time

with melody of heart to heart

 

Footsteps never to be forgotten 

vanish within earths soil of time
