Choose Beauty


Look at that sky

sorrow and sadness must fly

it's time to stand up

kick abuse to the curb

no more woe-is-me

no more words that disturb

God gave us a choice

He gave us a voice

I'll make my way

beginning today

and for all the tomorrows

believing in truth

forgiveness and peace

a gift from above

given in love

ours to claim

and without blame

see how easy it is

to wash away the gray.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind words.

Summer Is Here - Covid Be Gone

Summer Is Here


Covid be gone

summer is here

I've more important

things to do

and now, no fear


just listen

hear the winds howl,

gust and blow

hot air above one hundred

sweltering and sultry beyond words


Covid be gone

it's too beautiful to be pallid

the waves crash

whitecaps on an evergreen sea

so just leave me be


palm trees wave

but never sway

their trunks stand tall,

even in a squall

or hurricane come this fall


flowers are bright

as the bee's light

hear the bird song

the frogs' croak

nature, so full of hope


Covid be gone

it's time you departed

for regions unknown

health and happiness

God's promise, our own.
