This WordPress.com site is very cool!

Prodigal Boy

The Richest Man in Town!

Why are you drinking here,

if you have it all together?

With your crumpled shirt,

crooked tie, hat tipped forward.

Sweating like a towel in a locker room.

I bet you can’t go no lower.

You’ve struck rock.

Might as well look up.

pray your way to peace,

reconcile with your God.

I knew you grew up in a church…

It’s not like you fit here.

You know, forcing it.

Go back home prodigal boy.

You’re daddy is looking for you.

Pedaling

 

Riding to lunch at your place

leaning in at every corner

rain hitting my face

looking like a funeral mourner.

your house in view, I smile

It’s a struggle up the hill.

It’s worth every mile

Love you? Yes I always will.

 

 

Hee Haw! It could be a Wonderful Life!

The Richest Man in Town!

The heart drops when we feel as if our life

is wasted or unimportant.  The violence in the

streets indicate that there is a lack of value

for the lives of others.

An eye for an eye or do unto others

before they do unto you,

is the motto now inscribed in the hearts

of men and women boys and girls.

I pray there is a turning of the corner

about to happen.  Lives do matter, of all

tribes and tongues.

It can be a wonderful life, but it will require

peace, grace, and love. and preferring others

over ourselves, while seeking unity of a family,

city, and nation.

I believe the only way to have peace with one another

is having peace with God through faith in Christ’s;  life.

death, and resurrection.    When we live in light of eternity

we can realize the wonderful, abundant life that Christ talks…

halloween Nightmare

The Richest Man in Town!

vintage-1985-donald-duck-ben-cooper-halloween-costume-_1

Horrifying halloween Hammond night being dragged for blocks. Freezing rain turning to flurries, yet sweating in a mask through which I could not see, having trouble breathing through the pin hole of a mouth, while the band for the mask around my neck cut like piano wire. I wore a coat that covered the already warm costume that now no one could see. I had watched enough war movies on TV that my mom claims i said; “This is like being in the Army.” Only to return home to hard taffy candy that the paper stuck to, burnt pop corn balls and Apples my mother would not allow me to eat.
Welcome to my nightmare!

Out of Sight I’m Out of my Mind

Silence is screaming

Memories lost

Insane without you

mindless without you

my dearest.

hope has vanquished

loneliness is Queen

yet joy I have

love is found

I have peace with God

through faith in Christ.

Christ for my eternity

my day to day

keeping my heart and mind!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Wonder Of It All

The evil of society drains the hopeful expectations of tomorrow. You have to slightly cock your head at the wonder of it all.  While the achievements of some leave us in wonder at the heights of perseverance and imagination.

We wonder how we can destroy cities and homes without the use of bombs and bulldozers.  We ruin and destroy with carnal weapons of selfishness and apathy.

Jaws drop at the beauty of the view from a Tennessee cabin or majesty of the Rocky Mountains!  Land and sea we are amazed at the wonder of God’s creation.

I praise God for His creation, love and amazing grace. The wonder of it all!

Another Time and Place

Lights bright blinding the farmer

tells his story to the morning news

The mother ship had landed.

super robotic space freaks

eating what bleated

wiping their hands

after devouring the flock.

Rolled to town losing fights in the alley

running back to the craft

taking off without  glancing .

Fear getting the best

of these Super robotic space freaks.

 

Haiku Rock

The Richest Man in Town!

Rock thrown in water

will begin new life today

New circumstances

Sunset

Sunset at the lake

Golden horizon blue skies

water smooth as glass
