If you would like to take an occasional side road
littered with meditations, poetry, musings and photography,
try my morningpsalms web site.
The site was first published in 2002.
For various and sundry reasons,
see http://www.morningpsalms.com/wandered-home-again-essay, I let the site languish.
I have returned to posting my musings.
That’s Godiva in the photo, hunting at Jordan Lake yesterday.
moon oft reminds
mother for very first time
father full of Abba’s duty
star rising east
pales moon mist clouded
heavens foretell life shrouded
my heart weeps for their unseen loss
as donkey nears gate
careful of rider’s slight weight
seem to call tired trio home
tis birthing eve
journey now distilled
parents’ vows will be fulfilled
manger and promised birth await
Christmas Blessings to you this night and all through the year
dipped in enamel orange
drew for me glowing globe
hues showed spent night fleeing
full moon, setting,
drawn from consoling lake
heart touched by aching hope
too soon yet too long known
breath sighs, letting,
soul hurt lingering soft
song reft by chances gone
life sought wrapped well within
