Night Made Day

Night Made Day

 

Night made day

By moon on snow.

Sleeping trees whisper

In their dreams.

Biting air keeps the animals

In their burrows.

Branch shadows glide across snow

With ease.

 

I look out with wonder

At the scene before me.

Magical it has become

After the mighty storm.

Nothing is as it was, and

The world is weighted down.

Only the wind can come and go

As it pleases.

 

What a blessing it is

To live in my mountain home!

God’s handiwork is so close

I can touch it with my own hands.

Indeed, I am made rich with the bounty

That is set right before me.

Nothing manmade can compare

With His Masterpiece.

Still Life Painting

Still Life Painting

 

The still life painting is

Slowly surfacing

To the top of

The dappled, sparkling snow.

 

Clumps of grass

Hide themselves

Like rabbits ‘neath the

Sleeping trees.

 

Shadows shimmer

To and fro

As a breeze

Flutters softly by.

 

Birds hop atop

The crusty surface

Leaving tracks

Showing their exploring.

 

Wings open

Catching cold air

Lifting to a branch

To examine their prizes.

 

Branches bounce, as they

Crack the precious shells

Of the newly found seeds

And savor the meats within.

 

Winter blue sky

Smiles on the scene below

Knowing that

Life isn’t still at all.

Fall is definitely coming!

I was sitting outside today. As I looked up at the pear tree, I realized that fall is on its way. The leaves were starting to turn orange and yellow.

Here is a poem that I wrote and would like to share with you:

Fall’s Face

Summer’s sizzle
Is slowly fading.
The sunlight’s slant
Is heading south.
Days dim, and
Grow gradually shorter.
Cool nights chill
The chirping crickets.
Plants and trees sigh –
Seeking rest.
Leaves make
Magical color changes.
Bears bulk up
To sleep soundly.
Geese gather
To go southward.

Fall’s face
Finds the flora and fauna
Sleepy and sated –
From the rush and bounty
Of the summer gone.
