Sunday

Whatsoever things are lovely... think on these things.

Our thoughts impact us in so many ways: our attitudes, our struggles, our outlook, and who we are. I have to frequently remind myself to think on the things and people that are uplifting, lovely, and encouraging in my life. It is so easy to get caught up in the negative. Today’s verse is a much welcome reminder.

Have a lovely Sunday and Thank you for visiting today.

Poetry: The Echo

tch c2019(10)

As I lay sleeping

familiar faces do I see.

These long forgotten fragments

of people once so dear to me.

 

Some sneak in

with more than an impression.

I never think of them

when I’m awake,

that would be an obsession.

 

These visitors who once

our lives briefly crossed,

we all took our separate paths.

Now they come gently in the dark,

a friendly, welcome haunt.

 

I see me as I remember me.

I feel the warmth of the noon sun.

Someone ever so kind has stopped

to help me with a gentle embrace.

The gesture is so real.

 

The wildflowers sway in the breeze.

Even the weeds are alive I see!

It is happy here as I dream.

I’d like to stay forever,

please don’t change a thing!

 

Then the picture changes.

I hate to leave.

Another face from a more recent time,

has come to rescue me.

 

In the abyss of my mind,

those souls traveling years apart

can meet and share company

within my heart.

 

When I regretfully awake,

whatever became of them?

Did they get lost

or did I?

 

I hope they’re happy.

I hope they know

however much,

I love them too.

I wonder though,

do they also dream of me?

We are together always

Field of Dreams, Dyersville, Iowa(1)The hubs recently surprised me with a road trip where I didn’t have a clue where we were going from day to day. We also have in our family sort of a contest to see who can get to all fifty states first. Imagine my surprise when we went here to see where “Build It and They Will Come”!  Plus, Iowa is now one of the three new states we got on this trip. This was a very fun and memorable trip!

Gardens

One of the worst mistakes you can make as a gardener is to think you're in charge.(1)

Loving these summer days. Just thought I’d show off the hubs wildflower garden that he sowed from seed two years ago and for the first time came up! We have blooms everywhere and everyday is full of new surprises! Gardens are one of the absolute best parts of summer, even for non-gardeners who just love flowers or fresh veggies. Hope your world is filled with both wherever you are.

Shimmery glows of soft pink

and gentle hues of blue,

paints the calm at end of day.

Poetry: Requiem for the American Worker

Requiem for the American Worker

I hear America crying

across the flatlands, hill and dale.

Embittered tears of weary souls

the beaten down, the proud.

 

American workers holding on

with a cry in their voice.

Fighting hard to not be counted

among the growing poor.

 

The waitress at night with a babe upon her breast,

The coal miner tired of his long rest.

The automobile worker doing her best,

The bakery is closing, the baker is next.

 

The bus driver without a human load,

The young black man never given a chance.

The hospital worker called off, worries how to pay the rent.

Telephone workers marching, out in the cold.

 

Voices, hands, and hearts

traded for those across the seas.

The small, American farmer

still fighting hard to believe.

 

I hear America crying,

as those “who have”,

with no remorse, no guilt,

build empires upon the workers backs.

Americans trying, trying, and trying.

I hear America crying.

Poetry: Seasons

tch c. 2018 (8)

                                                                  Seasons

Many seasons have passed

since we met.

Tiny wrinkles and creases

have sneaked in

to mark tiny paths.

Yet, when I look at you

I see you as you are now,

but I also see within you

the young lover when we met,

that time tries to hide.

But I still see and smile,

Many seasons have passed.

Daily Gifts

Each Day provides its own gifts.

Sometimes we get so caught up with what is wrong or not the way we want it to be that we lose our focus for the good or what is right in our life. Imagine the change we might see in our lives if we look more for what is good, even if it is something small that we really don’t pay attention to and maybe even take for granted. Imagine the possibilities if we cultivate this as our approach to life so much that we inherently teach our children to do the same and look for the good in our lives and in other people. Imagine the difference we might see in our world. If you stop and think at the end of every day of 2-3 moments when you noticed good instead of the negative, would it be hard to do? Maybe… Maybe not.
