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
uplifting mortal spirit

five lines:  the first has five syllables. The second has seven syllables. The third 
has five syllables.  The forth and fifth lines have seven syllables each. The 
pattern is 5/7/5/7/7 for a total of thirty-one syllables.  This one is about rejoicing.

Crossing the Line

Fear not, wayward soul Lines are drawn only to cross Emerge from shadows Leave all bitterness behind Forgiveness waits in God's light
