I feel thy gentle touch upon my face
The delicate brush of wind,
A lightly scented perfume
On the fog that lies like a blanket on the trees…

Shoulder length curls, feathered and deep
Wishing to know her name, as she passes by
Wearing black, confidently poised and sleek

Sorrow Soothed

I saw the beaded pearl form
On her melancholy face
The drawn lines and trembling lip
Poised with aching grace

For a moment drawn with breath
She held her shaky pose
Emotion welling in her breast
Filled with grief and sorrows

I felt…

The Smile is My Muse

I wonder when I see a smile fading deep into your eyes,
What happenstance brings about that emotion, that response?
It is sometimes bright and sudden, sometimes soft and subtle,
But always rich in flavor, rich in texture…

Yet feels the chance of glory strong
If all upon their bended knee

Feather soft thy pillow make
To cradle tender till you wake
The gentle curve of thy sweet head
And rest ye peaceful on thy bed
And all thy dreams so gentle be
Until the dawn will waken thee

Small Moments

In small moments I sit in my bedroom window
Thinking about how the world is so small
How in the matter of a single still moment
The choice that you make could alter it all

What if while praying…

For daylight fades in yonder sea
The amber glow of evenings light

In the early morning sunrise
Glories seep across the sky
Brilliant burning raging color
Set alight the clouds so high

Slowly dawn makes known her presence

The Reason for a Card

Sometimes words won’t do.
My thoughts are all so jumbled,
And in my mind so tumbled,
About with disarray.
Oh what could I say?
So I chose instead to purchase,
A card with this one purpose,
To let you know its true,

And smile a winsome smile
For the moon whose silver light
Lets fall upon the sylvan world
Will watch with patient guard
With angels whose charge
Is given thee to keep
The winsome smile
Fresh upon your face

Having a desire to respond, yet holding back
I know not what my Lord wills in this situation
And time marches on, heedless

Spreading sweet the fragrances
You smell upon your pillow
While you dream of fondest wishes
Beneath the night scape willow

Bind Them Close

Fireflies and whippoorwills
On summer nights of yesteryear
Bring to mind the thoughts so dear
Stored away in precious nooks
And kept in secret far from sight
Till in the evening late at night
With giggles and smiles and furtive looks

I felt the cold autumn breeze kiss my face last night
While pausing to consider the enormity of the evening sky
A great joy rose up then inside my beating heart
And in the midst of my joy…

Soft light, like snowflakes
Falling through the air
Arriving on your window
Sees your sleeping there

Soft light, like snowflakes
Bid thee sleep in peace
Drifting on like sweet dreams
While all thy troubles cease

Praises for the Harvest

The song like breath it dances
It dances in the evening
Cross golden grain its waving
Deft fingers they are strumming
Strumming the harvest grain

The golden grain is waving
In the breeze it’s waiving
And workers lift their voices
Lift voices…
