Live For Others

Self on the shelf

It’s for you I worry

my sight getting blurry

Knowing your need

I plant a seed

making it your day

hear what you say

with a holy discontent

we know what you meant




A Smile

The whistle of the robin

prompts a smile

a glance to the trees

prompts a smile

the clear blue sky

prompts a smile

being with me in my tears…

prompts a smile

Dancing for Joy

Beginning in my minds eye,

leaving the angles and lines,

shadows and waving trees behind,

meadow of colors before.

Beams of light warmth

heal the soul

hearing the music of joy

creates the dance


Muddy church

Slip sliding away

Stuck in mud of division

Prays for unity


We are fond of one another,

the ideas we have.

Love might be a strong word.

But your images, stories and rhymes?

They turn me on.



Such applause arose in the woods.

Trees clapping their hands

giving God worship!

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.

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…
