so i might as well write about the clouds today lately more than a few have come my way but hey why do i think that it has to always go my way clouds gray lately they seem to stay these uninvited guests well even when i try my best to pretend they just won't rest until tears reappear tearing through my gray gray mind oh i wonder if i will ever find a way through all the clouds and all the gray oh cardinal is there a prayer for me wrapped up in all your music and melody through the gray the notes they fly to find the light they tell my soul that it’s okay to take a stroll through all the clouds and all the gray and just stay wait and pray
snowy spring morning
well snowy spring morning i wonder did you know that through the window of my soul the snow is falling soft and still the birdsong silent ‘neath the chill and beauty hides in the silence and sadness hides in the unknown and hope hides in the fleeting faith that rises with each falling flake of snow did you know snowy spring morning there is something growing in the waiting flowers put their hoodies on and trees are standing at the ready oh snowy spring morning paint the ground and sparkle the air i’ll find the beauty while the birds remember their songs and beauty hides in the silence and sadness hides in the unknown and hope hides in the fleeting faith that rises with each falling flake of snow did you know snowy spring morning
o sunset sky
o sunset sky i wonder if you cry as you say goodbye to all this day has left behind o sunset sky would you stay with me and cry my sunset sky
o sunset sky what do you see as darkness falls around me this pain and loss and mystery i cannot see what lies before me o sunset sky won’t you cry for me
o sunset sky i know you try to make smile all that fire in the sky it leaps so high and fills my world with colors and beauty and wonder and that ache in my heart just starts again so goodbye my sunset sky goodbye
i sang along
i heard some music today the rhythm section of a little girl skipping behind her mom a gentle touch from a medical sage as he sang - you’re going to be okay - the pale brown dried hydrangeas shivering or dancing to the melody of this damp winter wind i heard the horn section of one member of the bumper to bumper traffic play a long steady tone no doubt the driver was in the fermata lane and rules are rules even the gray sky somehow drew it’s bow across the horizon a deep ostinato boasting of its power to tame the light it’s all music to me a chaos of simplicity a pale beauty a human connection a reason to dance when there is no reason to be found so i sang along
light and storm
The current state of affairs in our wee little town. Happy Christmas everyone!
little frozen stars
snowflakes like little frozen stars are dancing around my backyard barren branches shiver beneath winter’s breath there is a kind of death that erases memories of fireflies and summer rain but is’t okay there are frozen stars dancing around my backyard this winter day cold and wind sweep the messy fall away cold stardust blankets the ground and delicately paints the trees and help me see that all this loss of green and flower is the rhythm of you and me for there is power in resting waiting dying to even beautiful things that may shackle our souls and find new life beneath the barren new love beneath the bitterness new warmth beneath the cold let’s dance like little frozen stars in my backyard and remember that what seems random when we feel abandoned when our hearts are unable to fathom the singing of the birds we wait in the in between and come to the Word He speaks into our stillness He speaks into our silence while little frozen stars dance in my backyard
It was a wonderful way to begin the day! Thanks for stopping by.
what if today you stopped and decided to be and not just to do stillness instead of the illness of this or that can you be with yourself can you open your heart to the presence of He who made all of the stars and thought of you before your first cry before the first time you opened your eyes just close your eyes breathe He knows your name breathe He loves you just be take time to remind your mind that you are loved you are His just be
november rose i wonder if you know that there is snow that the cold and chill and wind will still your crimson petals will fall and tumble your proud will will be humbled i wonder if you know that the season will bring death but in the midst of dark cold air and icy nights there right there new life and so we all must wait through the winters of our days we all must breathe the cold air surrender what we fear and let the clear icy skies revive restore and make us alive and help us remember that there is more that needs to die surrender in order to be alive once more alive
say goodbye and set aside the troubles that are storming inside at days end now it's all a remember when so feel the sads the mads the glads but more than these give thanks and see the treasures the pleasures that were yours remember the sum of them all is the story of you the unrepeatable you a treasure created by your Maker who paints the sky a masterpiece be at peace you unrepeatable you be at peace and have a nook night
