(Exclamations)
 
Uh-Oh! Oh No!
Egad! So Sad!
Exclamations fill the gaps,
Conveying our response to ills.
They are not a memory lapse.
 
Wow! Indeed! I don’t know what to say!
Awesome! Not Bad! Outstanding! Hey!
Supportive salutations,
Our words, reflective acts
Convey congratulations,
Worthy pats on our backs.
 
Exclaiming is a shout out loud
Expressing our delight.
Woo Hoo! Whoopee!
Xena’s Yah Yah Yah just before a fight.
But I wonder how an Angel
Exclaims when things go right?
 
For heaven is our final bliss.
Exclamations, all the glory!
Such a simple punctuation
Rapts up our earthly story.

Woman At The Well
 
A dusty road,
The mid-day sun.
Our Lord sits down.
His work’s not done.
He rests alone,
And comes a woman.
“Sir, you are thirsty.”
He says to her,
“Go call your husband.”
So speaks the Lord
Straight to her heart.
A sinner she,
We know the part.
They talk some more
She finds what she sought.
“Sir, You’re a prophet.”
He says to her,
“Drink living water.”
Our Lord has come 
To offer each
Eternal life 
Within our reach
Come to the well of life eternal
We are open vessels. 
Wash away our sin.
Feed us living water. 
Fill us to the brim.

Valuable Junk

I love wearing bracelets, and so far I haven’t lost one as I move my arm in and out of mailboxes along my delivery route…
But my collection has grown to overflowing and I was running out of counter space.  Traipsing through Target, I had an AHA moment when I spied a white ceramic chip/dip platter on clearance and could visualize my collection all arranged in its confines♫♪

UTF…Unable To Forward

Playing around with my phone apps….My poem inspired me♫♪
 
 
 
UTF…Unable To Forward
 
The stamp said Forever
But Lady Liberty let me down.
Hand scribbled, “U T F”
Across the name of the town.
 
Just a catch-up note
No romance, no plea to be with me.
But I was caught by surprise, a jolt
To find no address, no remedy.
 
What do I do with it now?
Tear it, toss it, tack it up?
Terminating  seems so final, kapow!
 
So the letter lies forgotten
In the pile of lists to-do
Until one day a text comes, unbidden
“Hey, what’s up with you?”

TWICE

Combining photography and poetry this week…

The moon was full as I drove past St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church and the road empty, so I stopped and rolled down my window, snapping two shots, knowing full well my little phone camera would probably not do the scene justice.  See what you think♫♪

TWICE
 
 
Perfection, attained twice in this world-
I feel prompted to point this out.
With all the ideals we aspire to unfurl
It’s been done, twice by my count.
 
First, just after time began
When creation was complete
God Almighty rested after seven spans
Not one iota needed to be added, it was sweet.
 
The other time?  When Christ sat,
Indicating His job completion.
Nothing more was required, that was that!
His deeds culminating in The Resurrection.
 
So far there have been two times of perfection.
We strive toward heaven, knowing it is won.
Christ rose from the dead, securing mankind’s salvation.
Our future secured, may we now focus on adoring the One who got it done.

Satan’s Standing Room

Mostly for the Easter season, but also to participate in a couple of blog hops,

I wrote a poem…
The abstract is melting snow crystals that I enhanced with blue….

It seemed to suit the poem.

Satan’s Standing Room
‘No rest for the wicked’
So the saying goes
As a gleeful Satan runs to and fro.
With access to the very inner circle,
Our Satan tattles his tales
Of never ending woes, of all that fails.
Meanwhile, the One rests at the Right Hand
Sitting, relaxed, knowing all his heirs are tools
Biding time in heaven, awaiting His footstool.
For Hell will be standing room only
No rest, nor relief, no way to cope.
When Christ sat down, his work finished,
Redeeming mankind, our true hope.
 Happy Easter Everyone♫♪
