“A message from a Calliope Hummingbird”

 

Is it a moth?

So quick and small…

Perhaps a dragonfly… or a butterfly in the distance?

What an amazing existence!

Zipping and darting through flowers

At this early hour!

 

What a discovery!

It’s the tiniest forest hummingbird

That I have ever observed!

The calliope hummingbird,

A true miracle of Nature!

A jewel so shiny,

Such a magnificent creature

In a body so tiny!

Named the “beautiful voiced” by the Greeks,

A wonder so sweet,

With an indomitable spirit,

Who travels thousands of miles without limits

Making him the smallest

Migratory bird and the mightiest!

I witnessed a wonder and a mystery

Of amazing achievement,

And astonishing feat

The spirit’s victory

Against all odds, knows no defeat

And can accomplish such deed…

Why then doubt humanity’s

Enormous capacity

To learn lessons from our past,

And overcome challenges,

To repair all of Nature’s…

A RE-BLOG POST – Man in the Door

This poem by DarylMadden expresses my sentiments exactly, so worthy of a second glance.  Happy Saturday to You!

sincerely, your scribe for love

So grateful this day
I could go to the store
A man clearly stressed
Appeared at the door

I had to think fast
To bless him this day
Lord gift me your word
To recast his way

Lord please flow through me
In peace , let him be
I asked how are you
His answered pleased me

The Lord has blessed him
In so many ways
May he slow down
This petition, I pray

I hoped he would stop
But he ran out the door
So I’ll pray for him
Please Lord bless him some more

ROUNDABOUT

OFF THE CUFF Writing

Each Friday I look forward to a roundabout of errands after spending time with the Lord in a cozy chapel.  I see the world in a special new way soaking everything around me and voila – this

HAIKU

Eyes canvas the horizon

savor fluffy whipped cream clouds

grasping God’s handiwork

…stopping at the store to buy the makings for a sweet desert for supper…

…O the joys of jubilation, living with purpose–not retirement..!
