Tunnel of time.

Traces

Traces
In the wet sand
Footprints of gulls, and man
Disappear in the tidal dance
Of waves.

Traces
In the red dust
Feet of man, and horses
Up in canyons, leave no trace of
The brave.

Traces
In the garden
Of such delightful scents
In spring and summer by winter
Erased.

Traces
Of human life
Throughout world's history
However, are reported upon its
Pages.
Traces
Of wins and woes
Like hand prints upon walls
Can't be erased, for their foothold
Remains.

Gold Refined

Unstable
Uneven ground
When you sit on a fault
For a heartbreak makes your faith
falter.

Restore
A broken trail
Requires sunshine and rain
Water cleansing the heart that needs
Warm rays.

Resource
From high above
Be the only recourse
To recover, the heavens charged
With force.

The Force
That never fails
May be at times at bay
By somber fearful clouds
A phase.

To build
Your inner strength
Which raises faith again
That the sunrise brings a new day
That grants.

New hope
Comes to restore
Your dream sleeping no more
The tarnished gold of your soul, refined
Bright ore.

solid faith


                                                         holding
                                                  myself upright
                                             walking along narrow
                                        strips of solid redeeming faith
                                                        trusting


                                                       handed
                                                  over all things
                                            and waiting on the Lord
                                      may not see immediate changes 
                                                       praying


                                                      message:            
                                               don't come to see

                                            foolish to not have any
                                  here there and everywhere collecting
                                                      prayerful

Life is short

It's not 
As if you have
A choice in the matter, 
But if you leave a poem it's 
Enough.

Closed Eyes

                             We seem
       To walk through life with our eyes closed
                        Oblivious to pain 
                        That stays away 
                              From us

Nightfall

Darkness prevails,
Summoning the reaper,
To collect the gruesome harvest,
Death holds.

Contest:"Anything Handmade"
Sponsor:Nette Onclaud
Written by:Sara Kendrick

(When our oldest daughter was 
in high school, she did not have a 
date to the prom or military ball
so I did not make plans to get a 
dress..She came in the day before 
the event after school and said that
she had a date..That gave me twenty
four hours to come up with a dress..
I had only $20 left until next paycheck
and no credit card..I went to the 
fabric store and got fabric and pattern.

The dress had 12 gores and it was floor 
length..I stayed up until 2 am sewing up
a dress for her to wear the next eve..)

in constant dread
