Cloud Drops

Remember it well. Largest Rain Drops

The rain we saw pouring down.

Drops bigger than clouds.



God Sent Me A Valentine

Many Enlightening  Glimpses,

Sweet Life Oft Entails.

Fear Not Things Not Yet  Seen

Cherish    The    One    You    Hold.

I  Worship God With All Due Thanksgiving

Fulfilling Me With You, Who Completely Fits The Mold.

Behind the Veil

“Should I stay or should I go”? The answer is simple, as I’m sure you well know.
When things get boggy, whether in life, or be it blog…
Whether novel, song, or sonnet…
We just lean it on a wall for a week…
We don’t break it…heaven forbid, for then
upon our return …what instrument shall we play?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

“Down Home”

Some things are temporal, never do they last.

But, some things are timeless, never to be surpassed.

Somethings are sloppy, and hard to attach.

Other things are simple, or,  at least solid,

And hold extremely fast.

Some things are opposites, never meant to be.

Yet other things are opposite, and together eternally .

You and I are like that.., though not opposite

within our souls…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Down Home Photo Here

Some things  instinctively fit, like

buttons, and button holes.

Thoughts of being without you,

are like honey combs without bees.

Button holes are just empty spaces without buttons,

and the only home I’ve ever known is

the home you’ve made for me.

Song From Jonathan

I  wonder what ever happened to honor among friends?

I know you and I are more like brothers, sealed by the blood till the end.

Yesterday the angels told me, what you have done for my boy.

Even my new heart skipped a beat, can’t explain this heavenly joy.

Remember when you took on that giant? Oh, the surprise in my daddy’s eyes.

I’m sorry he became so defiant.  I always said he had too much pride.

Do you ever wield my sword in battle?  Or, still strapping that one of a kind?

Here – nothing resembles a shadow. Closest to a regret is leaving family behind.

But, it’s not over yet, we will always be friends.

They say it was a match made in heaven, and I’ll soon see you again.

But, don’t do anything to hurry,  I’m here forever so don’t worry…

Forever never ends.

Heard you got yourself a new wife.

After you saved the Ark of the Covenant.

I know I could never repay you, for the kindness you’ve shown Mephibosheth.

But, if you were here man, I would So give you a big kiss.

You always were so full of grace and kindness.

But, David, you’ve never even dreamed of anything like this.

Words can’t begin to describe this true heavenly bliss.

But, it’s not over yet, we always will be friends.

They tell me our friendship really was made in heaven.

And, I’ll soon see you again.

But, don’t do anything to try and hurry – I’m here forever,  so don’t worry.

Because forever-Never ends.

Intrigue 0f Mary Celeste

Seen adrift, sailing her own, manifest burden,  Genoa, fore Rome.

Sitting low the hips, lading alcohol filled casks, for makers di vino, its designated task.

Sculling she was, sails torn but full, almost scudding, but yawning for sure.

Hailing at berth, 400 aloof, Captain Morehouse’s suspicions were soon met with the truth, that the “Mary Celeste” had lost her family and crew.

A tragic yarn of  Mary Celeste’s entire crew, Captain Briggs, his wife and daughter can be Continue reading

“Till The Potter Says I’m New”

May the Potter’s wheel keep spinning,

mold and chaff away…

Cleansing, cooling water,

wash more of me today.

Erasing that once I was,

within me a new heart create.

Life from youth, misguided truth.

From darkness of storm refuge.

Reflection in my mirror,

faces repugnant soul De jour.

You, the one who created me,

to be like you I long the more.

Each moment I blink, time moves on,

never to return again.

I pray thee Lord,

the Potter’s hand

shapes this man to be more like Him.

Jeremiah 18
