May there be a road
May your burdens all be light

May I?

by markfahmy

mayI

If you’re going through hell,
May I be your drops of rain?
If in your sadness you dwell,
May I ease some of your pain?

If the world has gone black in your melancholic eyes,
May I be a your candles giving out light?
If you’re sinking deeply in your cries,
May I, for once, become your white knight?

Reflecting

Often we stop what we are doing to reflect
Thoughts seem to roam like a grazing cow
Looking back at some detail or event passed
We might ask our self who, what, why or how.

Shall I Sing in Sweetest Clamor
Harkening Thee to The Glory of Day?

Spinning Gold From Flaxen hay?
Shall I Weave this Tapestry

Such a Tiny Thing

by Anita Lubesh

snow-bird

Sing little bird,
fly overhead,
rest in the trees’
wavering breeze.
Lift the curtain high at dawn
let the flickering candles yawn.

Huddled Masses

by merlinspielen

They flee
because they are forced
They did not choose
to have bombs dropping on their door
They do no want
to live on a hostile foreign shore.

They run
with what is precious
in aching arms
frightened children crying for food
They would rather
be anywhere than in their homes.

Everything, Moves

by A. Marie

If something should happen you will overcome it.

Know that when you are told to be brave you are being asked to make a choice. Nothing will ever stop changing. That means you too. You will try to halt such things by connecting broad resemblances, and insist that truth is truth, like how a stone is a stone, and how a wing is a wing.

Another day of summer

by Jem Croucher

20160918_121217

There may have been a touch
of Autumn in the air
as it started pretty chilly
with my arms, as usual, bare
But when the sun came out
from behind the Eastern sky
it rapidly got warmer
promising another high

I Cried A River Over You

by irinadim

p1120360-pansies-signed

 

I cried a river over you
For years and years and years
Until all the tears had dried up

The river bed is parched ground now
Dying a slow death
Yet yearning for life
Yearning for tears
But my tears won’t come

Unto the Hills

by The Showers of Blessing

grand-teton2

–  Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.” Psalm 121:1

Where do I seek in times of need?

Not with my head down, looking at my feet,

But gaze up high into the sky,

Where the source of strength I meet!

Let Go

by The Showers of Blessing

Let go without despised,

I know I can’t change anyone.

Let go without apathetic,

I respect we are different.

Let go without hopeless,

I declare He is in control.

When the Night is Falling

“On my bed, I remember you in the night because you are my help.

I sing in the shadow of Your wings.” Psalm 65:7

When the Night is Falling

Morning breaks, the world awakens to sing a brand new song.

Sunrise rejoices, blue skies anoint day as nature sings along.

Gather ’round children.
I’ve something to say,
The chance may not come ’round again.
You may not believe me,
But someday you’ll see that
This life is a joke in the end.

Deliberations at my Window

by A. Marie

Little things
Hold together, dear atoms cling to form matter,
To form

This hair of mine,
These hands,
This breast,
This heart,
This mind.

Several mountains I have climbed and have never fallen,
Yet stumbled I have on a lone, poorly placed pebble.

As You Go Through Your Worst

As you go through your worst of the worst,
I want you to know, someone has been through it and out before

someone has felt this pain of heart before,
someone has grown this hopeless before,
someone has thought he’d lost it all before,
