Like Your Child…

Standard

Just one of those days, I feel like expressing my love to the Father of Love and just be in His presence without airs.

#WQWWC – Beauty

Standard

Last week, Colleen put up a challenge tagged Beauty and like you know, she brings out the fresh lyrics in me.

Whether in the eye of the Beholder

Or vested in the thing itself, I see Beauty

Sometimes revealed and loud, undeniable

Hidden, calm and not proud, not definable

It’s in the morning unfolding between dusk and dawn

Radiating from the eyes, dancing to the lips in smiles

A giggle and it spreads its arms in affection, that’s Beauty!

It’s the stolen kiss between spouses in a crowd

Lost in a world with no walls, stares or frowns

Beauty in the dark, as in the Light

Glowing, refusing to be bound by limitations

Allowing the crack add spice to smoothness

I could go on and on, but no need to…

When you have seeing eyes and believing hearts…

There will always be Beauty!

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”  Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems, 1956-1968

The Star in the Child

Standard

I had so much to say on this haiku #82 Star&Child, so I did two! Hope you see the Star and the Child in it. What do you think Ronovan and Colleen?

Moonlight Romance

Underneath the starry skies

Months gone, a third appears unplanned

When two became one.

star gazing

Wisemen follow Stars

Grey and searching found

Years before His birth foretold

The star guides the lost.
