Key West Sunset

Celebrate the joy

You have lived another day

Spectrum in the sky

By the grace of God, go I

Join the sundown revelry



*Each day in Key West, they have a party outside to watch the sun go down.  It is 
quite a magical moment if you are able to participate and offer thanks.

For Rick's "beautiful memory" contest

Faith

Lay your sorrows down
Upon my healing altar,
Walk with me a while
And I’ll tell you of your worth,
So much more than you believe.

A Ghost-Town Church

Beside the last pew, 
a chipped white collection plate.
A ghostly blessing
if you toss a modern coin
through time and the barred front door.

Rejoice (Tanka)

Rejoicing in life
soul’s jubilation singing
raising of voices

Praises of joy unto Him

God Painted A Sunset

  
I closed tight my eyes And in a trance I saw God He painted the sky Picking up a brush pure blue He swirled a slash of azure Hesitating long He dipped a brush rosy pink He held a brush gold Gazing and pondering long He painted an orb of gold July 23, 2012

NEIGHBORHOOD ALERT

NEIGHBORHOOD ALERT

On December 1st
(even before)    lights go up
A celebration?
Take a moment for some thought
A celebration of what?

Not of neighborhood
Certainly not group concern
The lights are patchwork
Standing alone in the dark
A few proclaiming their faith

The rest are not sure
Not certain what it all means
Alone with their fears
The clear night sky filled with stars
Yet the rest are not certain

HE giver of life
Has sent us a messenger
A Divine poet
Gatherer of neighborhoods
The message   “Let there be LIGHT”
