Stop acting like you will never catch it....

Let's all start, to be more reasonable: recognizing, how this all can end
If we don't see this virus for what it's becoming...it surely isn't our friend
Working together. we can conquer it; but, running around crazy we cannot
Let's start taking, the necessary precautions; and start acting like we ought

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to  be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny

Each day on the news we   hear it... as the number of cases and deaths climb
There are those who are acting so foolish, that they baffle our intelligent mind
People paying no heed to any warnings: running here and running over there
Continuing to  cough and sneeze and party on ..like there isn't any virus in the air

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny

Deadly vapors are spreading around, through each molecule, that circles about
Though we cannot see them at all..it's true . from each atom, they seem to shout:
"If you breathe me in..you will become me and I invite you all to take me in"
Corona virus is like a devil  lying:  it will trick you time and time again

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny

Stop acting like you can... just..conquer it like you have the right to disagree
This virus doesn't care if you will riot it will suffocate us.. you and me
So if you're  not being careful or even listening to the warnings that are around
Do not be surprised, if, in another moment  traces of Covid-19 are in you found...

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny

Summer's settling in

Summer's, finally, settling in
We hear it speaking in the wind
Warming rays are pushing through
Blistering sun is felt, it's true

And the morning lights up quick
As the heaviness seem to stick..
Storms are brewing off and on
From the start of early dawn

Crackling ground and thirsty soil
Embrace each storm like healing oil
See the hotness ...feel the air?
Lots of mugginess everywhere.

Shall we jump out, in a pool
Cool our bodies ...try to fool
Piercing temperatures that allure
Every swimmer..not so sure?.

Vaporous visions start to rise
From the earth to lofty skies
See the rolling-ness in the air
Every asthmatic should beware..

A/C's running overtime
Pinch your pennies save each dime
For the bills will rise up high
Summer's costly..can't deny..

Even with the cost and heat
Summer's beauty can't be beat
Vacationers run off to a lake
And some will simply vegetate


Have a safe summer... :)

Through it all

All God's beauty calls to me
In the winds and in the breeze
Through the sunlight and the moon
in the morning and at noon..

I am with you forever more
Through your upsets and your war
Through your dangers and your streets
I am God and bring My peace

Though the world would  bring bad news
We can pick and we can choose
To hear the nonsense: day by day;
Or turn it off and hear God say

I am with you forever more
Through your upsets and your war
Through your dangers ..through your streets
I am God and bring My peace

Though the struggles seem to mount
Way beyond we care to count
Troubles rising.. illness too??
There is One who can pull us through:

I am with you forever more
Through your upsets and your war
Through your dangers and your streets
I am God and bring My peace

Violent protests unfair laws
Cause us all to think and pause
Can we rise up ..and be Light
Be one family .. all unite?

I am with you forever more
Through your upsets and your war
Through your dangers and your streets
I am God and bring My peace

Jesus told us " I am here"
In the gatherings where I hear
Voices rise up in My Name
Many  people ....pleading the same..

I am with you forever more
Through your upsets and your war
Through your dangers and your streets
I am God and bring My peace

Now it's time to stop and pray
Before you start another day
Where you're going and what you'll do
Will determine if God's with you

I am with you forever more
Through your upsets and your war
Through your dangers and your streets
I am God and bring My peace

Facebook family

Are you,watching me?...You have sat there for quite awhile...
But you haven't hit any likes or emojis with a smile
You claim to be my friend and I like that you are there
But are you really my friend  or someone who doesn't care?

I have opened up this site: every day and every night
Sometimes the things are calm ...other times:  people fight
There are people who are praising and others who are boasting
And times there are I see things, like: a hateful political roasting

I wonder why I stay here.. when so much is going on
Do I really want to see this,  at the start of early dawn
If I try to back away and start curbing my curiosity
I find I want to peek; and am jumping back in to see..

This Facebook fad has lasted, for many a year, I say
And I cannot seem to shake it .. it calls out to me each day
My friends, who I know and cherish; and those I never see
Seem to keep me coming back to this Facebook family..

When God looks at us

When God looks at us ..or what does He see
Does He see color or race or some genealogy?
When our God looks at us: at you and at me
Does He see us as culture or class or some society?

No when He's looking at us He sees us as soul
From the beginning to end ..with one common goal
To return back to Him with His Garments of love
To be found worthy of Heaven in those portals above

So lets turn away from hating and turn away from race
And look at each other as God does with grace
United and equal and totally one
We're family all striving to live like His Son

I apologize for them

BLACK  LIVES MATTER...

You are my sister and you are my brother
Though we have had a totally different mother
And though the colors that are emitted from our skin
May betray the  difference of our DNA deep within

Yet still, will I  claim you ..you are my very own
And blush at the unkindnesses you have been shown
The most ugly unkind  forms  of all of our humankind
You have known because of officers stepping out of line

So I apologize for all these  and those awful times
You have suffered so many terrible  terrible crimes
At the hands of those wielding unmerited power
I stand with you and protest every prejudiced hour

It is not what America's about not the America I know
So I plead with those who can ....to right this terrible woe
This cancerous outrage plaguing our nation everywhere
And instill in all. an attitude that is right and always fair

There is no color or class in God's Kingdom .. all our one
So, let us , all, go back to following  God's only Son
And treat one another with dignity  love and respect
It is the only way we will die in peace without any regret

When we stand in that Brightest Light

Whenever, that big day does come and we stand in that Brightest Light
We will see, everything, as God can see..what is wrong and what is right
We will  know as we are known by that All Knowing, Everlasting One
And be challenged and congratulated for everything we have or we have done

Yes, then, we won't have to boast or brag; or even toot "our own horns" at all
For, then,  we will see as God can see: all of our actions ..great or small
The pool of the public opinion or praise won't carry any weight up there
For everything others have ever said of us will disappear like dissipating air

We won't have to be proving ourselves at all for all of that will have been done
And it won't matter if the world is hating us... for they hated God's Only Son
We will be found in the brightness of His grace and return to Him Who is our All
So let us be alert and ready dear friends for we don't know the hour He'll call..

Hear us singing

Early morning songs arise
Birds are sounding..beautiful cries
Welcoming dawn and break of day
Creatures run and creatures play

Rain is falling soft and sweet:
Oh the beautifulness of this ..treat...
Like the soothing sound of water falls
Pitter pattering raindrops call

Darkness lingers in subtler gray
Cloudiness has so much to say
See the waters from  high above
Descending down, like drops of love

Hear those droplets: how they sing
Of God's life and everything
Calling out to all who'll hear
"Hear us singing..in your ear?"

Yet you ignore me

Have you, really, truly forgotten me
Tossed me aside like some casualty
Looking away so that you might not see
That something in you is part of me???

Have you truly decided to abandon me
Joined the ranks of those who will not see
That the story I'm living is your story too
Yet you go on ignoring me .. the way you do...

So I've learned to live like one alone
Having a family but not my own
Blushing because I cannot boast
Of reunions and birthdays and new year's toast

Happiness

The  sounds, of the birds awakening, are permeating the air
Plants, in all their beauty, can be seen, almost everywhere
The atmosphere is, so vibrant and the day light shares its glow
Golden beams of sunlight are shining out with   overflow

Oh to touch this mystery, of another breaking day
To take in all its beauty and to hear all it has to say
It's a gift so freely given and yet so many refuse to take
The essence of  this message is a simple attempt to awake

I have heard it in the morning ...the whispers of the fertile ground
Speaking to everyone around it, the secrets it has freely found
But, so few there are to hear it..and so few to appreciate
Come now listen to it  awhile..and allow your heart to meditate..

Oh to touch this mystery, of another breaking day
To take in all its beauty and to hear all it has to say
It's a gift so freely given and yet so many refuse to take
The essence of  this message is a simple attempt to awake

The birds,the bees, and the flowers...the squirrels who romp around
Have found it, this secret happiness, its free and easily found
Why can we not try to find it .and have it: that inner joy
We can see it in all of creation... its an eternity life can't destroy

Oh to touch this mystery, of another breaking day
To take in all its beauty and to hear all it has to say
It's a gift so freely given and yet so many refuse to take
The essence of  this message is a simple attempt to awake

I wish you could understand it...this message I am trying to share
Life is so full of everything and you are needing to be more aware
That, happiness, is not in "the having" but in living of life day by day
It's not in the  taking  to yourself selfishly but in giving your life away

Oh to touch this mystery, of another breaking day
To take in all its beauty and to hear all it has to say
It's a gift so freely given and yet so many refuse to take
The essence of  this message is a simple attempt to awake

I Love You

The morning opens up with song..
Birds are singing, all day long
Moments pass and hours too
One big evolving: "I Love You"

In the skies: so blue and kind,
Clouds emerge:  all kinds we find
Grey ones; white ones; fluffy too:
Again, another, "I Love You"..

Grass is greening and flowers show
A beautifulness, is  in overflow
Sweetness; brightness; colors too:
Can't you hear them:  "I Love You"

And when the nights are peaking through
A bright big moon, appears: it's true
Yellow, white or reddish too
God keeps saying "I Love You"

Every day and in every hour
Through the heat or cooling shower:
God, Almighty, is heard, it's true
Constantly says it:  "I Love You"

Perhaps

Perhaps, our good God is allowing this  to bring everyone closer...this pandemic...Are we  getting closer to each other.. or becoming more and more self centered?

Pandemic

Time has been passing.. but, I am still here
So much has been happening since the start of this year.
The virus has been spreading and we continue to strive:
Struggling but living..it is good to be alive

The sparrows keep singing though, tear drops will fall
Time has seen endings and brought  the hard call
The pandemic, of the century, has caught us off guard
And now we are saying this trial is too hard..

Despite all the heartache and the isolations too
Beautiful things keep happening; we see them: its true
Selflessnes and heroics and  some people who care
Come out like great warriors. who carry love everywhere

Perhaps we are all learning and are given this time
To ponder and grasp them:  these lessons assigned
In this plethora of moments that seem  to overwhelm
We find ourselves more connected to the spiritual realm

Alas...

Should I write or continue still
Like the leaf at breeze's will
Should I sing or should I talk
Stay inside.. or take a walk

Like the oceans or the trees
I feel the movement of the breeze
And in it's echo  and in it's air
God is speaking...everywhere..

Early morning ..or late at night
So much beauty, is in our sight:
Creatures romping...birds in flight
Tell me, tell me; aren't I right?

Like a symphony or a band
Feather creatures ...without demand
Draw our hearing; listening too:
Songs of morning, ring; it's true

Soaking stillness sudden winds
Move around and day begins
Like the dawning so long ago
God's creating creative flow...

But, now, He is truly risen

The tomb has long been empty for many many years
And many moments have passed since Mary, first, shed her tears
But today, we can all remember, It,  this happening once again
That Jesus Christ is risen and has freed us from our sin

But, now, He is truly risen ..He is risen up; it is true
He has stretched His arms out wide to rescue, to rescue me and you
The grips of death, once broken, can never bind again
Let's thank our Blessed Savior for freeing us from our sin...

The days before His rising and those hours before that day
Remind us of how much our sinning could darken our every way
How much our hate and fighting and our angriness galore
Could create so much suffering that our Savior meekly bore

But, now, He is truly risen ..He is risen up; it is true
He has stretched His arms out wide to rescue, to rescue me and you
The grips of death, once broken, can never bind again
Let's thank our Blessed Savior for freeing us from our sin.

We are no longer living that moment but our sins can truly hurt
And distance us from our Savior who has reminded us of our worth
If only we could truly grasp it that price that He chose to pay
We would turn from all our sinning and our foolishness displayed

But, now, He is truly risen ..He is risen up; it is true
He has stretched His arms out wide to rescue, to rescue me and you
The grips of death, once broken, can never bind again
Let's thank our Blessed Savior for freeing us from our sin.

It's so wonderful to celebrate it the Resurrection day
To visit and sing some anthems before we say our grace
But we musn't separate it from the lives we daily share
And live like Resurrection people who bring Jesus everywhere

But, now, He is truly risen ..He is risen up; it is true
He has stretched His arms out wide to rescue, to rescue me and you
The grips of death, once broken, can never bind again
Let's thank our Blessed Savior for freeing us from our sin

Turn back..

Be still and think of everything that is happening and going on
Our heart and souls are desiring for a new morning and a better dawn
We're exhausted with all of the waiting and with the constant news
That tells us more are falling to this virus that doesn't pick and choose

After thinking of all of this ..what conclusions are you able to reach
Is there something we're suppose to be learning.. some lessons that quietly leak
Why is it it... that this plague has run and why is it that it is  everywhere
Has anyone come to understand the messages filtering through our air

We had become so very violent so very hateful and  "I don't care"
That God had to shake us up  and make us all become more aware
That there is something more than our egos our grasping and  our reach
Perhaps He's allowing this pandemic to soften us and also to teach.

So what is the lesson from all of this from all   this dying and despair
If not to challenge us to be more loving and more willing share
We have to go back to those times where the rule of love and God
Were considered to be  most desirable and the road upon which we trod....



Friday, April 3, 2020

In all of this ..we can hope

It's going to be alright ..and this storm will pass away
We'll have to wait awhile..but we know it'll, all,  be okay
We might have to know  some inconvenience and suffer a little bit
But everything will turn around and be okay.. in spite of it

It isn't a time for gathering and it isn't a time to steal
It isn't a time for unkindness or for producing theories unreal
But it is a time for  healing and it is a time for the greatest grace
It is a time for everybody to get their life and priorities straight

For the writers of the greatest prophecies and the authors of the book
Are looking down upon our world and are casting a hopeful look
For they know what is in our being and what is in our very core
It is what causes an Infinite One.. to reach out to us once more...

So let's turn around our thinking and let's turn around our ways
Lets turn around to everybody and make an effort to give some praise
For we have so many more moving moments  and so many more years to go
This isn't an ominous ending but an incentive to change and grow



Friday, March 27, 2020

So, be you, the medic, without any tool

Let us all be careful and let us all be kind
So that the goodness we share can heal humankind
Our thoughts and our actions and all that we do
Can promote an aura of  health..for everyone...it is true

So turn away from the greediness and from all of the hate
Let your love, that's within start to escalate
The molecular battle from all places  around
That will overthrow this virus with a peaceful sound

The borders we create cannot help us as much
As the caring heart or the gentlest touch
So be you the medic without any tool
Let your love be the potion for this virus so cruel

Our energies rise up like a  vaporous cloud
They spread through the countries like a  boisterous crowd
So ...what are we sending and what are we not?
Could this virus be something our warring has bought?

Would you be the one?

Right now our world needs good Samaritans 


If I was really needing you; would you be there:
In my dark moments, and in my despair?
Would you be   so ready..that you could carry me
If I was  needing your presence:  where would you be?

Because now I am needing you .. I need you now
To help me through this.. through all this... somehow
I'm not feeling so  confident and  need some grace
Would you stay here with me . with .your warm embrace

If I was feeling anxious could you be my calm
That sweet consolation that works like balm
Could you be that person ...who would never  judge
Would you lift me gently... when my heart can't budge

Because now I am needing you .. I need you now
To help me through this.. through all this... somehow
I'm not feeling so  confident and  need some grace
Would you stay here with me . with .your warm embrace

If I wasn't acting rightly; and was a little unkind
Would you stay here with me and be my peace of mind?
Would you be that person who would always care;
Even in those dark moments when darkness is everywhere?

Because now I am needing you .. I need you now
To help me through this.. through all this... somehow
I'm not feeling so  confident and  need some grace
Would you stay here with me . with .your warm embrace

IF I wasn't even your friend and was just a passerby
Would you still be kind to me and help me get on by
Would you be that beacon ...that single ray of light
That helps me see clearly ...even with damaged sight

Because now I am needing you .. I need you now
To help me through this.. through all this... somehow
I'm not feeling so  confident and  need some grace
Would you stay here with me . with .your warm embrace

TIme

Time for loving.. not for fight
Time for everyone to unite
Time for kindness ..time for love
Time to give like God above

Time for hoping time for fun
Time to help out  everyone
Time for healing time for pain
Time for singing the peace refrain

Time for praying ..time for care
Time for distancing... everywhere
Time to reach out time to call
Time to be mindful.. towards all

Time for patience time to wait
Time to trust that God's not late
Time to pray now time to talk
Time to ponder and humbly walk


Sunday, March 15, 2020

God is still God

There is so much panic everywhere
Where there should be trust and humble prayer
God is still our God and we should  know
That He hasn't forgotten us .. He's everywhere we go

Before our time we shall never pass away
Through an illness or  some tragedy along the way
This virus spreading far and spreading near
Will have no power over us .. remember... God is here..

Take precautions as you know you must
But do not lose your faith or ability to trust
In the wisdom of the One who sees us all
He will rescue us and keep us safe ..great or small...

Angels ready

Silent whispers in the night
Angel beings take their flight
Taking charge and taking care
Showing Godness everywhere

Hear them echo...hear them sing
Of a Heavenly Happening
God above and God below
Grace is everywhere..we will go.

Morning's waking ...we do too
Angels are ready to help us through
Guiding; protecting; giving love
From the Great One: God above

Do you believe and can you see
Angel beings silently
With their presence... with their light
Helping all to live life right

Pause and appreciate

It's okay to take a break and simply sit down
while you are doing nothing much at all
See the sights and smell the smells of
flowers, trees and plantlets great and small
Feel the feel of  the warming rays of
Sunshine dancing on your face and on everything  around
Oh the wonderfulness of having time to sit motionless
and soundless in world  so full of sound

Can't you see it,  all the springness in the plantlets, trees
and seedlings everywhere
Buds are opening; seeds are breaking;
trees are flowering... with fragrance, they release into the air
Gardeners, garden, inside the house; with pots and pods;
that hey'll put out once the last frost has gone
Even early morning seems to echo
the sounds of spring, that burst forth with the first signs of dawn

Temperatures are rising and the warmer winds
are circulating throughout the entire atmosphere
Time to get out those lighter garments from out the storage
and put the heavier ones back in there
Oh, the awesomeness, of this season changing
into the beautifulness that only the Spring can bring
It moves everyone within and everything without
into the happiest dance and song that touches everything

I once was blind....

You cannot ever convince me that those four walls can make you whole
That sitting inside those pews, there,  will transform your immortal soul
I have seen it and I have also felt it: the gaze of the judging eye
Who will sing out every Sunday but then ignore the orphan's cry....

Oh yes you will be joining the choirs and you will join the noble quest
Of holding up those signs of unity and  shout out with great protest
But what of the ones right near you .. the ones you continue to deny
The brother.. the sister.. the cousin; you refuse to love or look in the eye

It saddens me to even think this..and  even more so to sadly write
That, I,  was once, one of those people... who thought that: I always right....
That I could have stood in  judgment or that I could have  cast a slur
Embarrasses me to this moment and makes me more humble I am sure

So now I'm pleading for mercy; for forgiveness and for the Light
So that, I can become more loving and not be so blinded by my pride
That I can give of my love more freely to every person... every time
I beg of the Giver of everything:  the ability to bless all with my rhyme

Soul stuff

The silence speaks when all is still
It touches hearts and moves the will
It carries strength and also light
The silence speaks from dusk to night

The aura speaks it soothes and sings
It shines on all and gently stings
It moves our senses and every bone
The aura speaks ..put down that phone

The thunder roars...it also speaks
It chooses hearts; it nobly seeks..
A mind uncluttered and unafraid
The thunder speaks of love displayed

The seasons taunt; they challenge us
To let alone all fraud and fuss
To cling most truly to what is real
The seasons ask us..to see ..to feel

The universe sings.she sings out loud
To passersby and noisy crowd
But no one listens.we're in a rush
The universe speaks..we're out of touch

The world's in need... she needs us all
To turn around,  to hear the call:
The call of love... the call of care
The world is asking us ...be more aware..

First snow

Expecting now today.. a little bit of white
Will it be, that it comes in the morning or will it come at night?
Something about the snow that can make one really feel
Close to the One Whose love is Everlasting and for real

So I'll wait and gaze and watch the graying sky
For that first sprinklet of snow 
that'll drop on down from up high
And when that first crystal blanket starts 
to form before my eyes
I'll feel so much excitement 
that I won't be able to suppress my sighs

The temperatures have fluctuated up and down all week
Can't believe the weatherman have spoke of such "a treat"
A chance of snow and schools will shutting down: it's true
February is bringing a delight...just for me and you ..

So I'll wait and gaze and watch ..at  the graying sky
For that first sprinklet of snow 
that'll drop on down from up high
And when that first crystal blanket starts 
to form before my eyes
I'll feel so much excitement 
that I won't be able to suppress my sighs

Since little my heart has held,here, a very special place
For that miracle of nature that sprinkles down with grace
Like puffs of love and flakes of the purest down
I love to see it falling and covering up the ground

So I'll wait and gaze and watch at the graying sky
For that first sprinklet of snow 
that'll drop on down from up high
And when that first crystal blanket starts 
to form before my eyes
I'll feel so much excitement 
that I won't be able to suppress my sighs




Just a short little note this morning... From my poem.. you can tell that snow is in the forecast.. Since I was small, I have had love for the sight of snow falling and blanketing the earth..

Something about it's softness when it falls.. and the pureness of it lying there so quietly looking pretty.. makes my heart leap..

Do you like snow...?   I know driving in it and shoveling it may not be so great; but, take all that way.. Isn't it beautiful.. .? Is there some type of weather you really love?

Does it make you want to dance.. to sing.. to write .. or paint? Isn't it wonderful, how God gives us so much to delight us?

Love you .. Joy

The right thing's right for everyone

Just because we think.. it's so
Doesn't mean it's right, I hope you know
We huff, we puff we; we shout .. we scream
But all in all it's just our dream

We mustn't hold and cling so tight
To things we push with all our might
When all is said and when all is done
The right thing's right for everyone..

We hold our signs and we hold our meets
An ugly violence is in our streets
But, if what we're saying...is  good and well
Why do our gatherings look like hell?

We mustn't hold and cling so tight
To things we push with all our might
When all is said and when all is done
The right thing's right for everyone.

"If you oppose us.... then you're blocked",
This is our lingo and it is our talk
It is our reasoning and it is our way
If you vote against us..then go away?

We mustn't hold and cling so tight
To things we push with all our might
When all is said and when all is done
The right thing's right for everyone.

It is so sad this political divide
Within our country: so true and tried
Our fights and battles should not exist
To promote, our self seeking and divisionists

We mustn't hold and cling so tight
To things we push with all our might
When all is said and when all is done
The right thing's right for everyone.




It seems, to me, we are becoming so political..so opinionated..so divided..that we forgot that we are suppose to be united.. I can say ..even ..from watching my own family's posts.. friend's post..that the election has become something very divisive and toxic...

The intensity of what's appearing on social media, in the newspapers, on the TV shows me .. that we are not the United States of America but a very divide States of America..

The way people treat those who embrace another political side is so UGLY!!!   I am ashamed to see people close to me .. lash out.. curse.. ridicule what and who they don't like...it's saddening..

If your way is right.. why is it making you talk so ugly?? Whatever is going to be the way the country chooses: republican or democrat or something else.. It's obvious that the biggest issue isn't healthcare, economy.. or even   student loans ..

The biggest issue is: is upholding the freedom to have an opinion.. It's pushing for the right to be different and respected ..even when .. perhaps.. someone sees things differently ..votes differently ..worships differently..

It's amazing that the very ones pushing for the rights of illegal aliens are the ones shouting down the rights of US citizens who cast a ballot different then theirs.. They want some part of the Constitution..but not all parts..

We are not suppose to be cafeteria Americans.. choosing what part of being American fits our agenda...

Please wake up People.. we are the USA and in our very core..we are one with each other by the very articles we created in protest against Britain's control.. We all have rights to vote.. to be .. to love .. to worship.. to bear arms. .etc..  Just because you don't like one of those rights doesn't mean you can bash those who respect them all..

If you don't want to vote for someone great.. but stop beating up someone who doesn't agree with your view.. You only show how small minded you are.. shouting out like your way's the only way!


Love you ..Joy

You can see

Nature's speaking through the leaves
Hearts are listening and receive
All the secrets and all the love
Descending from the heights above.

Like some ointment soft and sweet
Flowers whisper ...energies meet
Through the seedlings; through the sod
We are touching the heart of God..

Every morning..and every night
All before us; in plain sight
Auras, loveliness: art divine
Singing  songs out: line by line

If you're wanting to;  you can see:
Everything beautiful..land and sea
All the melodies; all the song
Not so perfect but..nothing's wrong



Good morning.. look out your window..What do you see.. .  really..what do you see...? Can you tell me.? What do you hear? Are you able to hear the birds... the leaves..the whispering wind..? Maybe at a distance, beyond the immediate sound of chirping birds.. you hear a hum of cars heading off to work?

Just for a moment..focus on the beauty outside...Are there trees? How many.. What kind? Do you hear birds? What kind? ... Can  you see any plants..are they budding?

Imagine you are there side by side with one of them.. what would they be saying...Do you feel they are at peace.. ? Do they look calm...at one with the rest of the world?

Spend a little time..just listening and looking.. isn't it amazing..what we have before us every day.. We can start each day ..gazing on so much beauty..?

Love you .. Joy

Silent pauses

Silent pauses in the day
Calms our souls and makes a way
For the angels with their light
To guard and protect us ..unto night

Silent pauses along the way
Give us chances to carefully sway
From the wrong and to the right
Careful thinking gives us insight

Silent pauses when we speak
Keeps us  humble ..keeps us meek
Makes us notice.. what we can miss
If our anger starts to hiss

Silent pauses on the road
Reminds us things: as good as gold
Patient driving... keeps us safe
Speeding can bring us  to our grave

Silent pauses here or there
In our home or anywhere
Will alert us and help us see
God is present in you and me






Good morning.. how many of us are in a hurry each morning..? We just have to do this..or that.. and have to get out the door..fast..fast ..fast....

I know, sometimes, I get into that nasty habit..called routine..Routine seems to make us go quickly through things, without thinking.. There are things we do every morning the same..

When we are doing our daily morning routine.. what are the thoughts we have going through our head.? Are they thoughts of hurry, hurry ..hurry.. We have overslept.. or today we need to go in early..? Run, run, run?

What if.. just..what if...we slowed down a little? Each morning.. before we looked at a zillion emails and texts and tv and computer.. we just stopped and listened and prayed ( if we do that) and allowed the untouched silence of God to enter our souls.. We don't have to say anything..or even think...just be still..

What would happen if we did that? Do you think we should try? Wonder, would we find that our days become more blessed..more meaningful..?

And then at night .. before we jump in bed.. can we, then, go into that pause moment..Just a moment of two..complete silence, wonder, awe of how wonderfully blessed we were during the day.. and just acknowledge that blessing and say thank you to the Giver of all good things..What if we just took a moment or two to do that in the evening. .Nothing formal..just a slow down.. a quieting . .a silencing.. just a few moments or two.. God isn't impressed by numbers..or minutes or hours.. Let's slow down.  Love you: Joy

Something new...

In between my poems, I will start to write a little bit so you can get to know me... .Presently, I live in North Carolina...I work from home..I rent an in-law suite....

I love all of God's creation and believe in angels.. Jesus and in Mary and the saints..

I respect everyone's right to worship or not..It's not for us to evaluate souls.. but it is ours to love and spread love to others.. there's already too much hatred in our world..

Today ..our weather was nippy.. Squirrels and birds were ready for the tiny morsels.. I set out..

My four kitties were less rowdy .. I love them all. .their names are  Orion, Gracie, Lucca and Crystal..

Till  tomorrow.. I wish you a blessed night ;)

Signs of Spring

Soothing sounds and melodies
Come from creatures in the trees
Spring is coming  and we hear
All that's caught up in the atmosphere

Budding blooms and grasses peek
Through hardened ground that tries to tweak
Attempts of seedlings pushing through
Doing things they're meant to do.

So we embrace it all the change
Coming from the sunny exchange
While rounds and rounds of molecules
Break the rank and despise all rules.



Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Oh, the sun shines..

Smiling through the sky so blue
The beautiful sunlight's peeking through
Whispering wisdom through its rays
Singing songs that wake our days

Glowing through the molecular blend
Protons, neutrons, atoms send
Rays of sunlight, golden glow
See the cosmic, seasonal .. show

Every morning and nearing night
Awesomeness shines out from this light
Softer showings emerging from this sun
And warming the hearts of everyone

Before the light of day

Hours slip away before the break of  dawn
Before you know it..all this silence will be gone
Beautifulness and endless sounds of peace
Speak to me as the predawn hours start to  decrease

Everything around me seems to hold a supernatural sound
And everything echoes within  me..that..God is truly around
Though nothing animate seems visible to my mortal eye
I feel the Infinite One breathing life and hope ....I can't deny

So I sit in wonder and awe before the light of day
I soak in the awesomeness of the Almighty One passing by
In the elements and molecules and everything that is
God is speaking to my heart .."My love is so much more than this.."

It's so simple...

We only really need
To put aside our greed
And strive with all our might
To turn darkness into light

It really isn't hard
To pick up broken chard
But it is quite a plight
Changing wrong into the right

We all must really let it go:
The awful pride ..and our ego
And embrace without a  dread
A selfless life of love..instead

Good night to all

Night is here it's here it's here
Stars are shining with  light sincere
Glowing  dancing and doing their thing
Sparkling through the silence they sing..

Crickets start to stretch their wings
And a beautiful music from them rings
Soothing and softening all the air
Creating a calmness like a prayer

Angel beings all hover around
Quietly watching ..there isn't sound
Standing and staring and watching us all
Waiting and listening for every call

So I say it and extend to all
A blessed good night a kiss so small
Through the elements and through the breeze
Angel beings do carry it please

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Brrrrr

Frigid temperatures are all here
And it's good .. to be sincere
Rather have coldness and the chill
Than some heat which is unreal..

Birds are chirping all the same
Frosty figures bless my pane
Smoky vapors slowly rise
From the earth and in the skies

Crispy coolness kisses us all..
Plants and creatures slowly crawl
Through the elements in the wind
Welcome wintry weather  again

So I'll sing it sing my song
When I get up; and all day long
Winter's here and here it'll stay
Still spring time flowers come our way

Sunday, January 19, 2020

Wintry weather

Chilly breezes usher in
Wintry whispers start again
Finally winter's here it is
Making all our air so crisp

See the icies in the wind
Spreading out with veil so thin
On the plantlets..on the trees
Silhouettes that ride the breeze

Graying skies, are .talking low
Cooling temperatures bringing snow
Something's awesome something's sweet
In their sprinkles on our feet

So we bid a huge goodbye
To those temperatures..once so high
And we embrace it as we should
Wintry weather cold and good

From the uninvited..

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

Why condemn me for my sharing for my opening up to all
Would you rather me be silent pretend I have it all
I've listened to your stories of how  you give and  give
Yet you never even noticed that I haven't a  place to live

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

Oh you sing  your hallelujahs; and you're present in the pew
But how often do you do it: what the good book counsels you
It's all for fame and glory and for the recognition too
Would you even know the value... of hiding what you do??

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

We are the humble army.. the population of the poor
We see you walk, right by us;  though, you pride yourself on more
It's all for gaining numbers for that army of "the elite"
But do you think that Jesus wouldn't love us on the street

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

If church was something more than ...the four walls you embrace
Do you think that you would know it... would you think it a disgrace
If I told you ..you have it wrong now...that it isn't in those walls
That you'd find your Beloved Savior..He's not  selective with  His calls

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

It's true..that.. I haven't bathed in: that pool you call the way
But, I carry Him,  in my spirit: the One who made the day
And though, I cannot quote it.. that great Book you shout out from
I know that God is loving and has sent us His Only Son

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

I cannot keep it,  flowery...or sugar coat it for you
There's an enormous crowd of Christians, who have it wrong: so true
There's nothing in the Bible that says crowding into a church
Will bring you more salvation than those left outside... for sure..

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

If I could give you anything from this poverty that I know
I would give you all.. my vision ...that can see beyond your show
I would speak to you the secrets that were spoken long ago
And show you that the Gospel wasn't meant to give  control

You walk around in riches..and are as happy as can be
So is it any wonder that you cannot notice me
I wear my same day clothing and I say my same day stuff
Have you ever known the struggle or the endless nights so rough

All things are changing

Where is the winter ..oh.. I'd like to know
Is there any cool weather..some sprinkles of snow
Oh.Where is she hiding ..is she anywhere around
Where is that cold weather..where can she be found

Springlike ..the  feeling... oh..the air fools us all
Though dates say its winter..the spring sends the call
The Daffodils, the violets; the robins appear
Where is our dear winter is spring really here..

Thunders and lightnings and tornadoes galore
January is present ..but look out the door
The trees are now budding and seedlings do sprout
Oh.tell me what's happening..what's it all about

Like signs on the highway and warnings we read
The Heavens are calling.. oh people take heed
Tis time to be thinking: to be readying for all
We seem to have everything but we're on a recall

What's it all for ?

All of this fighting..and...all of this war..
Can anyone tell me: what it is all for..
Why can't we all settle without violence or hate
We're needing an adjustment.. it's getting too late

It's not only the bombing but the hateful remarks
That create so much tension and terrible sparks
You think it's the machinery and the bombs in the air
That is disturbing each  nation .oh reader beware

For it's the lying and cheating and the uncaring  heart
That creates all  the tensions : the destructive start
Before ever a bombing ..or any war plane can fly
We have been destroying each other .. how awful ..oh my

So if we're going to try  settling  this tragedy of war
Our resolutions must start here at own country's door
For we're  embarrassing each other before all of the rest
Condemning and fighting like a nation unblessed

What about the wars ..right here?

There is warring all over and warring right here
Ominous and frightful..and causing us fear
Ruthless and careless and provoking true hate
Will love be able to change it..our unquestionable fate...?

I see it in the newscast..and I can see it in posts
People are boasting about what'll help the most
The left side and the right side and those in between
No one is ever loving.. if you know what I mean..

Families are all fighting and coworkers are too
Arguing and fussing over what we should do
Blocking and unfriending and being unkind
So much of this activity is hurting my mind..

Cursing ...and yelling and saying: "I am right"
"Disagree with me".."and we are going to fight"
It is awfully ironic and and .oh..so unfair
That we don't love our family ..like "those people out there"

Not that.. standing up for  others... is ever so wrong
But what about the relatives ..we've  avoided so long
Why is it so important to stand up and protest
For wars  at a distance ...while denying family requests?

The Almighty Media Twist...

In it's early stages..communism used media ..to brainwash the masses

We are becoming too much accustomed to thinking that it's okay
To detract the name of another or to stomp on the ones in our way
We are applauding the great dereliction of those we have come to hate
I don't know what we're all becoming but our conversions may be too late

We have all so lowered our standards to so much awfulness
We are no longer reading the gospel but the opinions of the press
If it is found inside the media or the latest fanatical groups
We believe it..like we should be following.. we're not really sheep.. oh no?  oops

Splashed across the screens of our computers are slogans of awful hate
Down with any kind of authority..  But.. not with the socialistic ingrate
WE have lost our love for our country but  have accepted a diluted mix?
Who has gain control of our consciences..it's the almighty media twist.

We have all so lowered our standards to so much awfulness
We are no longer reading the gospel but the opinions of the press
If it is found inside of the media or the latest fanatical groups
We believe it..like we should be following.. we're not really sheep.. oh no?  oops

The very things we think we're condemning we have accepted in other forms
Have we all become so blinded   we can't see: brainwashing ..soothes and warms?
Like a wolf, inside of a sheep's clothing,  the radicals  will rob you blind
And before your realize its's happening ...all your freedoms are left behind

We have all so lowered our standards to so much awfulness
We are no longer reading the gospel but the opinions of the press
If it is found inside the media or the latest fanatical groups
We believe it..like we should be following.. we're not really sheep.. oh no?  oops
