Pendulum

January

It is his first snow.

“Daddy, the ground is all gone!”

“Son, it will come back.”


June

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Ecclesiastes 1:9; 3:11

Maybe you are right.

Maybe you have it all wrong.

Only time will tell.

“It is a new year.

Let me really mess this up. “

Said no one ever.

Evergreen


On the snow-fogged peak

the lonely evergreens smile.

Such emptiness. Joy!

Perspective


“How large is too large?”

said the wise, soaring eagle.

The gnat said, “How small?”

A Christmas village

Somewhere in Betty’s basement.

So, “Norman Rockwell.”

Haiku Joy

Whose Joy?


This joy that I have,

the world can’t take it away

It belongs to God.


You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;

Isaiah 55:12a

Nothin’ New

In a swamp, the water is not free flowing—much like our minds when they are closed to new information.

You know, brain swamping?

When you’re open to ideas,

just not nothin’ new.

Christmas and 🌹

Photo by Betty Chambers, from Chambers on the Road

Like many a porch,

but with something so much more.

Christmas and roses.

Biting Wind


On the sleeping grass

the biting wind meets the leaves.

Tomorrow? Same thing.
