Soul Shine

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?

Father’s Day Haiku

Fireside Father

In a hearty fire

the smell of hickory smoke

a boy and his dad.


In memory of Glen Duncan (1935-2007).

No Rain, No Rainbow

after the rain came

the sun, in the azure sky

turned brown into green


He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Ecclesiastes 3:10a (NIV)

Twenty-two years ago, this summer, my life hit rock bottom. By God’s grace, I’m still here. Friend, if you’ve been there, you can make it too!

New Morning


The glistening grass

a sassy wren sings along

with the breeze at dawn


Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV)
