Waiting to Shine


the marble table

sitting outside in half shade

just waiting to shine


The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.

Fall Haiku


With the quaking leaves

I feel the northerly breeze

Fall’s game is afoot.

dragonfly

dragonfly. all eyes.

may I hold you in my hand?

but you dodge the fall


One possible interpretation:

The all-seeing dragonfly must sense that cooler weather—and his impending demise—are near. Yet he is still agile enough to keep me from catching him in my hand. He continues to dodge the fall—avoid the inevitable.

Autumn Faith

the promise of fall

covered in blankets of dust

remembering rain


To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.

Hebrews 11:1 (GNT)

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. 😊
