Scripture from NKJV Bible

 

Autumn Days


Wind hushing oak trees

So many branches in flight

October and colorful leaves

The pumpkins start lining up

Several bees take one last peek

Honeycombs of summer

Lustful pollination

But the ground gets colder

A preparation for frost

Ant hills become winter tombs

Squirrels pack their cheeks

Like old-fashioned chipmunks

Now the ground gets colder

Nature is getting older

Autumn days

Seem to last forever

“For this is God,

Our God forever and ever;

He will be our guide even

To death”

(Psalm 48:14)

 

 

 

Just Trees


Trees, just trees

They get a hold of me

Even used one as a crutch

With my broken down back

They lifted me up spiritually

One like a friend

Green and covered in algae

Seemed to get my attention

Slimy but cool to the touch

Trees, just trees

And many species

So tall, going right to Heaven

Just like flags, waving

In the cool wind

Do they talk to God?

Oh, look at the powerful trees

Incredible trees

Just trees

So tall, going right to Heaven

And just like flags, waving

Trees, just trees

They get a hold of me

Even used one as a crutch

With my broken down back

“As the deer pants for

The water brooks, so pants

My soul for You,

O God”

(Psalm 42:1)

 

 

 

Echoes on a Worm


Nature is harsh

On the worm

Twisting

Through mud puddles

Avoiding footprints

His underside is soft

Can be tickled

He accepts

Rain checks

Summer is the best

Water is the enemy

Living for raindrops

Twisting

Through deep puddles

Avoiding darkness

Sunshine is best

On the worm

Brings out

The best in him

Avoiding footprints

“His foundation

Is in the

Holy mountains”

(Psalm 87:1)

 

 

 

Humid Trail


I walked a humid trail—

Frequented by numerous dog tails;

The barking makes one realize,

We all have a place on earth,

Including a place in Heaven, someday!

Bugs and dragonflies,

Perspiration in my eyes,

Bees and sparrows…

Surrounding eternal skies.

The heat is much too hot,

And all the insects seek a cool place.

Right now, they are upon my skin;

It is irritated and itchy,

But I am reminded of the

Love that is encountered here!

Bugs trying to get a sip of any moisture,

Especially on the dog trail.

“Man is like a breath;

His days are like a

Passing shadow”

(Psalm 144:4)

 

 

 

Neighbor’s Elephant


In a neighbor’s yard

Is a backyard elephant.

A retired circus beast,

With elephant skin on his knees.

Years of riding bicycles, jumping through flames,

Carrying clowns and circus dwarfs,

On his mighty back.

But he is so gentle and sweet,

Putting his wrinkled trunk over the fence.

He is only seeking peanuts,

What a nice boy he is!

A Bulldog, an oxen, a mule, to name a few;

He is so innocent though,

Just letting God promote his life.

He has big dreams (the elephant),

Just like us,

We have to surrender to God’s will.

Sometimes the old elephant will start humming,

“America the Beautiful,” and with a tear in his eye,

Remember his mother and father of years ago!

They came to find a better life for themselves,

At the circus.

The elephant falls down upon his knees, often.

He thanks God for the blessings he has received;

Have you thanked God today, for your many blessings?

Surely, you can name some!

“O Lord, how manifold are Your works!

In wisdom You have made them all.

The earth is full of Your possessions—“

(Psalm 104:24)

 

 

 

 

Raindrops


Soothing raindrops—

Like lemon drops

Candy for the soul

Cooling down and soothing

Take a day to rest

Let the water collect

Draining, downspout

(John 3:5)

 

 

 

 

Sardine Tin


A few sardines

Packed in the tin

With a key opener

A tasty treat

For fishermen

Or outdoor men

(John 21:5-6)

 

 

 

Saturday


Dogs licking ice cream cones;

Need to get the car washed,

Getting ready for church.

This is Saturday!

Cleaning the house,

Cleaning the garage,

Maybe a visit to grandma.

Bills to pay, it is Saturday.

A church-related meeting Tuesday,

And almost Sunday.

Cats licking lollipops,

Need to clean the freezer.

Getting ready for church,

I can feel the sunshine already!

(John 8:12)

 

 

 

 

Nature’s Pharmacy


Oh relaxing tablets and teas

Right from the herbal store

From plants: God’s creation!

A pinch here and a pinch there,

A capsule or a tea bag,

Wonderful herbs.

Valerian root, dried orange peel

Hops powder, catnip powder, celery seed

Passion flower herb, skullcap, St. John’s Wort

Peppermint and spearmint

Calming leaves

Plants, flowers and stems

Old-fashioned medicine

From the olden days

Better than your doctor?

Seek the Great Physician

“And by His stripes we are healed”

(Isa. 53:5)

 

 

 

Heal Us Lord


Lord, You have given us

Healing through angel wings

All the herbs cry out

As the aloe fields reduce inflammation

Cool our skin and our souls, O’ Lord

Your cleansing water

Takes away sin

And your refreshing river

Eases our pain

O, heal us Lord, You are God.

Arthritis, cancer, diabetes

AIDS, leukemia, alcoholism

Back problems, pneumonia, asthma

Physical disability, anemia, flu

Cataracts, hearing problems

You know all our needs

Without our telling, You

O heal us Lord, You are God

Your soothing ointments

And nature’s pharmacy

Cool our thirsty souls

“He sent His Word and healed them,

And delivered them from

Their destructions”

(Psalm 107:20)

 

 

 

Marble Eyes


Cats; calico cats

With marble eyes

Praying before

Sunny skies

Every whisper

From a cat’s voice

Seeking fish

Or a meaty dish

Most are silent

With quiet paws

Most of the time

Chasing mice

Is what they do

Or catnip leaves

And valerian root

Some of them

Are Noah’s helpers

(Genesis 6:18-22)

 

 

 

 

Winter Barn


Ice crystals rest upon animal hooves-

Pigs, cattle and a veterinarian cry,

An outdoor mix of snow and depression.

The Great Recession has reduced feeding times,

Even the dogs cry out for an extra biscuit.

Baby puppies, shiny eye buttons, and honey buns!

Salivating and trembling sheep know a ritual,

Grasses, wheat, barley and grain-

Fill hungry bellies of God’s creatures.

But the winter barn is so delightful,

With Christmas decorations, sending love.

Cookies engulf a fragrance in the air now.

Mother is baking for everyone,

Her old checkerboard apron with holes—

Make her look a hundred years old.

So the winter barn is a sanctuary of love?

God’s creatures get a scent of brownies,

Dogs lick moist plates of leftovers, pink tongues!

Nobody will complain in the winter barn,

As the Basset Hound made the trumpet sound;

Heavy dogs only smile at lazy barn cats.

So the old rake fell down as winter breezes—

Quickly stiffen anyone with arthritic joints,

Nobody can manage the storm willingly.

But the creatures are safe inside the barn,

Singing, singing, joyfully—

All creatures, line up for Christmas cookies!

“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord,

“Praise the Lord!”

(Psalm 150:6)

 


 

 

Lilac Quiet Time


The smell of nectar

Surrounding bushes

Of quiet lilacs

Sparrows and hummingbirds

Like metallic flakes

Of a sudden paint brush

Overwhelming and quenching

Nature’s thirsty soul

As God listens for secrets

But finds none

Only the branches move

As a whirlwind of energy

Comes from a silent breeze

Green

Lavender

Brown

Not a sound

Hissing from raindrops

Leaving a moist kiss

On pink velvet petals

Lilac bushes

Lilac trees

As a whirlwind of energy

Collects downstream

It only pushes and shoves

A backyard grill nowhere

Oh, childhood memories

Of the lilacs

And cats

(Genesis 28:1)

 

 

 

 

Tadpole Cove


Down at tadpole cove

I go to roam

Little tails with big heads

Underneath the water foam

Mistaken for minnows

But life is life

Algae green

Algae green

But a silver sheen

Down at tadpole cove

This is my home

Very fragile

Tiny creatures

Tiny creatures

Mistaken for minnows

Mistaken for minnows

But life is life

Life is life

Sunny day

And sunny day

Incredible tiny features

Eyes so big

Such eternal potential

Down at the cove

Loving tadpoles

Loving tadpoles

“Even the sparrow has found a home,

And the swallow a nest for herself,

Where she may lay her young.

Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts,

My King and my God”

(Psalm 84:3)

 

 

 

 

Nature Trail


Branches lay sideways

Falling on the trail

Green, brown and shadows

Past, present and dog tails

Horses across the way

Shiny flies give notice

Clouds with sun today

Nature gets our hopes up

Autumn leaves of gold

Red, crunchy and quiet

A wooden staircase

Cut into the rock

Barking brings awareness

Life forms are everywhere

Lady bugs and dragonflies

A nature trail to share

God holding nature in Mighty Hands

No man could ever do this

Even though some may brag

Eternal sky goes upward

Oak, birch and willows

Whisper to anyone

Laying on a pillow

“Seek the Lord and His strength,

Seek His face evermore”

(Psalm 105:4)

 

 

 

Freedom of the Grasses


Tall blades of grass stand erect, at attention;

Oily bees pollinating everything in sight—

An ant yawns at a blue sky that lasts forever.

An eternal sky of youth, anything is possible.

Now some muscular dogs sip from algae lined wells,

Just yawning, pretending to be asleep.

And the grass, dancing merrily as an orchestra,

The conductor is God Himself—

No mistakes could happen on a day like this!

And again, the grass cries out, pointing upwards—

Sharp and precise, like blades of shiny green glass;

Geometrically perfect, individual stalks.

Oh, freedom of the grasses, anywhere or over there—

In a swamp, they tickle dragonflies;

Those that wander too far, to get a nap.

And a thousand cattle on a hill, enjoy the warmth;

Grass on their tender hooves, caressing tired feet.

Munching on sunshine, munching on sunshine.

Yes, take me home, to the freedom of the grasses!

You can lie right down in the field, and nobody will care;

Nobody will bother you here.

And even the apple trees boast of living fruit,

Sweetness for the taking;

Adam and Eve must have been here.

Because freedom of the grasses… nobody really escapes.

They pretend, and come here, from the city—

Please don’t pretend,

Lie down in God’s sunshine,

Let in tickle your soul!

(Isa. 58:11)

 

 

 

 

Bulldogs and Pick-up Trucks


Goin’ down to the gravel pit

where pick-up trucks

and Bulldogs sit

going to take it easy

let the sunshine dry my shirt

down here, Bulldogs smile

it may take a while

but old Jethro never got married

a working man never had time

this is the simple life

fishing and hunting

stare at the sky

wonder what God is doing

watch the deer shake their tails

and Bulldogs riding in pick-up trucks

pink tongues smile from cabs

hungry chins seeking chicken

dogs with faces of old men

now the country store cries out

bursting with friendly delight

nobody can bother us here

going fishing

(John 21)

 

 

 

 

Mud Puddles and Sunshine


Don’t walk in mud puddles

Stay away from the worms

Enjoy the harvest

Get into the sunshine

Look up

To the True Light

Stand upon a mountain

And get ready to celebrate

You are a millionaire in Heaven

There is gold in your pockets

Diamonds in your shoes

Walk on some golden streets

See the city of transparent glass

God is a roadmap for everyone

But stay away from puddles

Your second chance has begun

Enjoy the harvest

Get into the sunshine

Thank You

Jesus

(Psalm 104:24-25)

 

 

 

Apples


Delicious apples,

Dropping to the ground,

Like God’s supermarket,

Free for the taking.

Nobody will grow hungry here,

As the Bread of Life satisfies;

Souls become refreshed,

Apples of all colors fall.

Basking in the Sun of Righteousness,

With healing,

Keeping bruises away,

So far away.

Wonderful sweet apple juices,

Promoting nutrition and health.

Apples are,

The Branch of Righteousness.

(Jer. 33:15)

 

 

 

Grandma’s Backyard


I saw grandma

Near the trees

With rake in hand

A true farmer

Agrarian

Always outdoors

Not wasting time

Complaining

Even her apron

Revealed character

Her honesty

Standing in the mud

Not afraid of the rain

Canning peaches

Collecting fruit

Collecting vegetables

Staying in the backyard

Her territory

Her turf

“Children, obey your parents in all things,

For this is well pleasing

To the Lord”

(Col. 3:20)

 

 

 

Railroad Tracks


I know these railroad tracks

Will lead to sunshine

Under wonderful skies

And there is peppermint in the air

But God is ready for you

He wants to guide you

Just follow the railroad tracks

Often Believers stray

But try another day

Come back to Him

Everyone may sin

Follow the road He sets

For you

It is better than your own

He is the True Light

AMEN

(John 1:9)

(I John 1:9-10)
