Maybe soon Trump they will impeach;
Makes us nervous;
Never joined service;
Lesson to politicians we should teach.

Dressed in very fine clothes

brought the romance to a close.

chlorophyll greenery, Spring’s
creamery daffodils chock-full of light.
bees alight; honey wings.

violette clematis rife —
the ribbon wraps ‘round my neighbor’s mailbox.
her preserve rocks wildlife.

the southern cottonwood tree
sheds seeds of tumbleweed-like fluff, blowing
in warm wind; swing drifts free.

Separation from the sinful world
God's word is clear, a call to segregate
From the world's wicked ways, to separate
Not to befriend the darkness, nor to condone
The sins that shame the Lord, and cause His throne to moan

But many play the...

I totally take gardenias for granted
As do I the petulant petunias someone planted
I neither bless nor bow to any bouquet
Nor any overused flowery cliché
I walk by the willows and never weep
And I wish morning...

Sometimes you can feel your heart start beating fast
As your breathing heavy sometimes you run
When you feel like somethings following you,
And with all the sounds you hear,
You never...

Premium Member I'M Still Love

Who I am it’s written in glory,
Though crucified by name,
Dreams of now the given story,
I'm still love.

Hung between the two deserving,
Bearing the lies and naked shame,
Though innocent, their sentence I am serving,

God surely deserves our praise*
Heartfelt worship of love’s proofs
With sincere gratitude-phrase
Acknowledging grace He pours.

Along praise in poems and prose
Odes to the Lord show faith props
As the Holy Spirit prods
Toward joyous service-press.

Freed from greed and pride...

A dawn makes a promise new
love songs, sing the chirping birds
soft aurora opens morn door
wet soft grass blades stick on shoe.

Fine lazy day,  why undo?
dewed blooms whisper tender words

I cant get you out of my sight!
You never want to fight

You blow me away like the owls...

Ode To the Faded Spring
Heart in melodious mute,
Impressions of my mind fuse,
Eyelids got amazed and pause,
Until you gorgeously passed.

Eloquence of fervid glance,
Plunges in my hollow heart,
Exuberant fragrance danced,
Earth exhibits show so grand.

Lively lives dived into frames,
Divine ink lavishly paint,

When will peaceful ways be found?
When will God’s good faith shine down?
When will men erase hate’s frown?

Peaceful men embrace loves’ ground.
Faithful men let God surround.
Respect for all; please, come ‘round.

The frail know not the zeal of robustness. 
Nonetheless, hopes seal

The bright green leaves are turning,
the forests look like burning;
cold weather is returning.

The days are growing shorter,
we're in the third year quarter;
the squirrel becomes a hoarder.

The stags in woods are clashing,
after the does they're dashing,

Night donned sparkle of moonbeam,
