Little Robins

The robin tends to her young

She make sure

They get every worm

Before the day is done

The mom will do anything

To make sure they are fed and safe

Moments become days on end

Before too long

It’s time to spread those wings at last

The nurturing time is over

It’s time for this new task

Time to learn and grow

On their own

The wind will help their bodies flow

Don’t be afraid little ones

Your mom is ready to let go

She can’t wait to see what you will become

A robin in Vermont I saw inspired this poem. Her babies were about to born. I even blew her a kiss and she cocked her head, wiggled her butt and opened her mouth. She gave me such a look that said, ”You better leave me alone and my babies when they are born.” She was such a good protective mother. Here’s a picture of her:

Here are some cool facts about robins.

Where Time Goes

As the wind blows
Where time goes
No one knows


I just want peace
As trouble I release
As soaring geese


The valleys may be dry
No rain from the sky
But your heart answers the why


I don’t care if I have the answered equations
Numbers can cause frustrations
If the solution comes with allegations


Where’s my hope in humanity
It comes with affinity
As I hope in the divinity


Let go of the sorrow and pain
And try to refrain
From getting out of your lane


We all have our path to tread
So as you wake up from bed
Don’t forget how you found truth when our hearts bled

My Quotes on Persevering

Here are some quotes that came to my spirit this today. I hope it encourages you.

“It’s in the waiting that you are truly strengthened. And it’s all about how you choose to wait. For example, when you wait for a train you can either complain, constantly look at your watch, or reflect on how far you’ve come. The choice is always yours.” – Carly


”Just because a story starts off good it doesn’t mean it will end good. And just because a story starts off bad it doesn’t mean it will end bad. It doesn’t matter how it begins, all the matters is how you preserve in the pages in between to determine how it will end.” – Carly

The Seam is Bursting

seam splitting

The trees retire their leaves

My spirit grieves

I know they will be back

Like paved gravel

The workers lay the ground work

But my day’s plans unravel

 

Do not hold on too tightly

The breeze doesn’t blow slightly

The kite will blow away

Leaving that little child in dismay

 

I am a child at heart

Immature and naive from the start

I’ve been told children will inherit paradise

But I’m acting like I already attained the prize

 

If you shake me

Please don’t forsake me

I don’t always dot my I’s

Even with all these misfortunes

But I am thrilled

The enemy is being stilled

The seam is bursting with a gift inside

 

I need a new awakening

When the new day is aching

It’s aching like a bruise

I know I cannot lose

The Romance of the Cosmos

space1

The celestial realm is doing a waltz

Debris rocks with firefly tails

Are a part of this romance of the cosmos

While spirals of light and gasses are moving

Through an endless expansive universe

 

Down on one of the rotating rocks

Are a life force of ingenuity

Breathing atoms of purpose

But flesh and bone of pride at times

 

They wonder if there is other life

They send satellites and robots to assess

But what they are forgetting

Is the One Being who is always there

 

He has been there before eons began

He watches from afar

But He looks deeply into each heart

Inspecting each motivation and loving act

 

He has us in His ancient hands

And on His never ending thoughts

So is there life on other planets?

There is more activity than we could ever believe

Peachy Keen

3B332CB0-12CF-438C-9BBC-7CD16A2F580D

I wish everything was peachy keen
I want my testimony to be juicy
The sweetest of hope even seen

It’s more than the finish work of the cross
It’s the struggles, twists and turns
It’s give You all my love and concerns

I wish everything was peachy keen
I want my love to be ripened
Your Spirit is making me sparkling clean

You are making streams in the wasteland
I long to see my joy and crown
In the Lord, I must firmly stand

“Take the kingdom prepared for you before the world was created”
Oh, Lord prepare my heart, I am elated
I rejoice with all of the creation and the angels
