One Winter Morning

On lofty mountains

Snow-packed and

covered in white

Dazzling under blue

skies one

winter morn.

~

The mountain air

Fresh, crisp, exhilarating

as if to lift

one’s joy

to

sing sweet music

of wonder and praise.

~

Look beyond the

clouds which

hide the shining sun

to the vista of

creation

and celebrate

with a heart of delight.

Crossroads

Decision to make

Vital and challenging

Optimistic reasoning

A bigger picture.

The Green Sanctuary

Hidden island

Rural forested

Paths less explored

Eco-friendly park

Cool tree ferns

Cascading waterfalls

Meandering streams

Schools of fish

The green sanctuary.

Like the deer

longs for the cool

waters of the stream

Crystal clear waters

flow abundantly

 and does quench

to satisfy the thirst.

~

And the longing soul

dreams of love and peace

so the heart within

knows the joy destined

from knowing the Creator

God of hope and peace.

(Based on Psalm 42)

Promise Of Hope

May there be

a song to sing

the dream of expectant hope

of charity instead of despair

the promise of justice

in humanitarian issues

in living standards

health and quality of life

instead of poverty and disease.

~

May the global perspective

of this beautiful earth

awaken us to

a glorious morning

of healing

and to this

promise of hope.

A Nightingale Sings

As evening shadows fall

A nightingale perched on a tree branch

sings by the light of the silvery moon

The twinkling stars

glittering like diamonds

across the pink sky

Sparkling waves on the lake

dancing a moonlight crescendo

a moonlight crescendo.

Magical Chimes

Wind chimes

Ringing echoes

Magical moments.

A Time And Season

The cool crisp air

once upon a season

of autumn leaves

fluttering, falling

red and golden yellow

carpet of vivid colours.

~

Birds perched on

branches of

bare deciduous trees

twittering in

musical harmony

of nature’s song.

~

A walk in the garden

early morning silence

fresh scent of

roses beautiful

shrubs of flowers

where sensory beauty

smiles upon the season.

Words make an imprint

on conscience and heart

They can give hope

joy and release pain.

You are …

You are loved

more than you’ll ever know

You are thought of

more than you can think of

As love conquers all

that glow of light

gives hope.

Swan On The Lake

Like myriads of twinkling stars

on glistening waters

Tiptoed the graceful movements

of the ballerina.

~

The Swan Lake played

Gentle ripples

Echoes of the waves

Rhythmic movements

of the ballet.

~

The music of the night

orchestrated the strings and bows

To an art of

evocative music and dance.

A Poetic Allegro

Days of love

and splendour

Beauty to adore

dancing to the music

of Love’s allegro

Sweetly luring

sweetly calling

~

Warmth of sunshine

dew of heaven

sprinkling joy

in morning light

evening song

whispering hope

Love amazing

Joy divine

~

Fresh roses greeting

The first scent of spring

Ode to joy

Playing sweetly

Sweetly playing

Harmony’s allegro

Sing A Joyous Song

With music and the sound

of the trumpet

Make a joyful

song to the Lord

With music and the sound

of the harp

Make a joyful

melody to the King.

~

Sing forth

a joyous song

Sing praises

to the Lord

Rejoice and

make melody

Break forth

into joyous song.

~

(Based on Psalm 98: 4 – 6)

Is Beauty Skin Deep?

The halo effect

Clouds true characteristics

Look beyond face value.

Trust deceived

Disappointment mounts

Friendship betrayed

Belief disturbed

The plot thickens.

~

People are hurt

by disturbing events

But it is their belief

about these events

that traumatises.

Melody Of Spring

Season’s song

of April showers

flowers for the bees

warm days of beauty

colours and blooms

the robin red-breast

chirping merrily

garden of roses

hues of love.

~

Breath of spring

blow cool

and gentle breeze

smiling sunshine

days upon the earth

budding buds

of growth in season

sweet music

of dreams.

 

 

 

The Green Green Hills

Winding road

leading to

rich pastoral country town

called Peppermint.

~

The bustling crowd

at the market place

chattering and mingling

excitement fills the air.

~

An auction is

about to begin

the auctioneer calls

for attention

silence all at once

the sheep were brought in.

~

Market produce

locally grown

fresh succulent vegetables

a variety of fruits

people pick and choose.

~

Peppermint green hills

lush and tranquil country

quaint charming cottages

cobbled streets

tree lined avenues

reminiscent of yesteryear.
