Waiting for Rain


lonely Hunger Stone

on the growing river bank

together, alone


Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear to dull to hear.

Isaiah 59:1 (NIV)

Rain

the morning after

birds singing in the brisk breeze

thankful for the rain


Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surely as the sun rises, He will appear; He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.

Hosea 6:3 (NIV)

and in summer, too. 😊

Sitting center street

Stands the ancient, mighty oak

The world goes around

Homecoming


The light of music

shines underneath my heart’s door

like a child come home

Soul Shine

Photo by Gary Fultz

the water, like glass,

reflecting the setting sun

mirror for the soul


For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God in the face Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)

Ode to a Toad


An ode to a toad

Who calls out from his abode

To his wife on the road

“Watch out, mama toad!”

There are things on the road that rumble and run.

Things that will squish you to dry in the sun

Let’s not forget our marital roles.

What would I do with 100 tadpoles?

Fireside Father

In a hearty fire

the smell of hickory smoke

a boy and his dad.


In memory of Glen Duncan (1935-2007).
