Our Next Junction

The sun is setting earlier today;
The days grow dark and cold.
Leaves are falling from the trees,
And stars are growing bold.

Time is fleeting like a fox
Fleeing from the huntsman.
How much time have we got
Before our paths make junctions?

Ancient bridges we approach;
Not certain how to cross.
Hand-in-hand, we draw close,
And step, in faith, across.

Crisp autumn air all around,
Adventure floats in the breeze.
The mountain’s echos all resound
With thunderstorms and lightning.

With one more trip down Memory Lane,
We say goodbye to summer.
We bid adieu together, the same,
Until we see each other.

Rain Clouds

The clouds move in, so dark and black;
And thunder rolls and lightning flashed.
With fearful eyes and quivering hearts,
We watched the light and dark sides clash.

We cannot know the mystery;
There are things that go unseen.
A battle between good and evil
Is happening behind the scenes.

Rain pours on to the hard blacktop;
Mists rise up to high treetops.
Torrential water falls from above,
As shadows shed their loads, thousands of drops.

The battle continues for a short while,
Until the payloads of ammo are empty
Shadows are scattered across the sky
As the clouds break, revealing the light.

Light wins again, but that’s no surprise:
God is creator, the great Lord of life.
Victory is His, there is no contest;
Shadows for a season, but then ends all strife.

Bumblebee

Hey everyone. So it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog. What can I say? Life happens. I have decided that there are priorities in my life that make a 365 project impractical. I have learned for next time though. I also have an idea for what I want to do for next time.

As for my photography, even that has been lacking. I’m going to try to get things posted, but I’m doing a half-marathon, along with working full time, and just general business is all going to limit my time.

Gotta focus on the task at hand, like a bumblebee! Took this one out in the garden earlier.

Flip-Flop Day

I dream of this day that’s done, 
The start and the end. 
From morning to evening, 
From dusk until dawn.

Clouds filled the sky up high, 
Wind caused a chill. 
But in my beating heart, 
Love warmed me still.

The fires burn so bright, 
From day until night. 
Where is the guiding light, 
In this fight for life?

Smoke fills the sky, 
Time travels by, 
And though I’m just passing by, 
I still feel the sigh.

Rain falls this morning, 
Flames start to die. 
But my heart is beating 
Deep down inside.

Afternoon, then evening, 
Clouds start to part;
Sunshine starts falling, 
The rain has all stopped.

The heat beats us down;
Sweat poors down my brow. 
But in this scorching town, 
My love still stays sound.

Through the ups and downs, 
Around bends, through doors;
The constant that keeps me strong:
My Savior, Christ the Lord.

He is my strength, 
Never giving in. 
Darling, I’ll go the length, 
Just know I trust in Him.

Clockwork Boy

What is wrong, little clockwork boy?
Why so glum? Why no tick-tock joy?

Is it this: that your cogs are clogged?
Is it that this rain made you rust?

Tick: you feel almost right again.
Tock: you fall with no help from friends.

Coiled up springs, interlocking gears;
Wound by hand many times a year.

Without care, the clock starts to slow.
Loneliness causes rust to grow.

Springs unsprung because no one cares.
No friends here; all are unaware.

Broken ropes, worn from constant use.
Cracked axels, hurt by friends: abused.

Who is there to mend; to repair?
Can you run after you are snared?

Have no fear, little clockwork boy.
Christ is near, to fill you with joy.

He can clean; you will be like new.
No more rust; polished and so true.

So smile now, little clockwork boy!
No more fear, no more worthless toy.

Wound up now to face the new day;
Ready to take the step of faith.

Who can know what adventures wait?
Listen now, hear that storm abate?

Weathered, beaten, pummeled, broken;
Another hurt around each bend.

Barely making it through each year,
Enduring every painful tear.

Until, at last, you were found there;
A shadow of what you once were.

Gentle hands picked you up softly;
Showed you a little mystery:

Every crack, every broken piece,
Used to make a fine masterpiece.

All the dents, scratches and scrapes,
Used by God in what He has made.

You are now something grand and new!
More beautiful than crystal dew.

Clockwork boy, loved and cherished too,
You have joy in the black and blue.

So my dear, little clockwork boy;
Never fear, never lose your joy.

I love you dear, always, ever.
Sleep tonight, a peaceful slumber.

One last thought, little clockwork boy…
I love you lots, in Christ: my joy.

A potted plant, unable to go outside.

Potted plant, stuck inside;
Through the glass, looks outside. 
Sunshine rays, clouds and sky;
How I wish to go outside.
