Picture Perfect: Rhyme Time

Flower Bower

This bower is
A leafy shelter.
Its flowers bloom
Branches of solanum
Provide a resting place
Where sparrows come,
Enlivening our space.

I adjusted this photo slightly as the camera did not want to see what I was seeing.

Picture Perfect: Ten Minutes

Little bike blue

You’ve rusted your horn

Oaks stand by as you

Rest in the field, shorn.



This was approximately a ten minute expedition by the time I turned around and came back after the scene caught my eye, and walked across the field to place my bike.  A bit more if you count the time my husband spent pumping up the tires.  You don’t have to go very far to find beauty, to see examples of synergy between our Creator and us.  You don’t need a bicycle (or a tractor) to work on the field within.


“I do not raise anyone forcibly. My Arm waits at the end of man’s arm; he grasps It if he wants to.  If My Hand and his hand together hold the hoe, man is a thousand years old, and can still bite.”

A poem

    Worship murmurs in

    tending, enjoying flowers–
    mingling God’s lifeforce
    with the creative work,
    care from human hands.

This is a poem my sister wrote upon return from her walk around her neighborhood.
