the water, like glass,

reflecting a well spent day

empty canoe waits

REEL-al-ity

a crowd of humans

swimming by like hooked mouth fish

who will reel them in?


Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Jesus, Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)

Reflections

warming at the fire

encircled by the darkness

faces in the flames


For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Autumn’s Landing

On the tree-lined street

blazing, brilliant golds and reds

like leaf landing lights

rising harvest moon

silhouettes the hungry hawk

tomorrow, the hunt


But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently

A Young Tree’s First Fall

Young tree with four leaves

Had you heard about the fall?

So little. So much!


A working man may or may not have enough to eat, but at least he can get a good night’s sleep. A rich man, however, has so much that he stays awake worrying.

The “Friend Finder”

Photo by Gary Fultz on Unsplash

As the boats sail by,

each of us is an island.

Will they come ashore?


A man who has friends must show himself friendly, and there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Begin Again

Just how much longer

will the changing leaves stay green?

End. Begin again.
