The Voice I Hear

falls 1 quoteThese words from the song, The Garden, bless me tremendously. I’m learning not to look back on my past with regret, and I’ve come to realize God is in charge and will see me through all challenges or trials. But more than that, I’ve begun to expect good things, moving forward each day, expecting things to work to the good. I’m not all the way there yet with respect to this way of dealing with life’s challenges, but I’m getting closer every day, and I’m able to go boldly into each new day, unafraid and expecting God’s best. I am at peace.

I am blessed.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

This Place In Time

Once upon a time there was a good man, who hadn’t always been good, but he’d always had some good in him, and the good seemed to grow larger as he grew older.

Every day, he’d write good things and share them with anyone who cared to read them. He wasn’t trying to change the world, he just wanted to give people hope in a time when things were changing rapidly, and not changing for the good; or so it seemed to him. He didn’t know if very many people would read what he wrote, but he hoped they would and thought maybe they’d feel better about things if they did. Read the rest of this entry »

I Never Killed Anyone

I wrote this in story form a few days ago for Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday, and knew then it would have to be converted to poem form for dVerse Poets Pub’s Open Link Night #131. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

I Never Killed Anyone

Saw Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday prompt first thing this morning, and the words she offered, train – burlap – fiction – pearls – vertigo, for use as inspiration for or in a story or poem, came immediately to life in my sometimes overly-active imagination. I wrote:

I Never Killed Anyone

My head resting on a burlap sack of feed, cheeks crisp from the cold seeping through unseen cracks in the gently rocking boxcar, I slept fitfully, spinning in and out of dreams like a man on a ledge. Read the rest of this entry »

A Case of Hearts ~ the poem

I’ve been very busy moving and getting settled for the last couple of months, and so I haven’t written much of anything, and as a result haven’t posted anything on my favorite poetry and/or writing sites. One of my favorite sites is dVerse Poets Pub, so I’m posting this one there. Read the rest of this entry »

A Case of Hearts ~ For Khole

I’ve been very busy moving and getting settled for the last couple of months, and so I haven’t written much of anything, and as a result haven’t posted anything on my favorite poetry and/or writing sites. One of my favorite sites is Kellie Elmore’s, Magic in the Backyard; especially her Free Write Friday feature. I’m hoping this poem can help bring some peace, courage, and hope to Kellie and her family. (Click on the link below to see the excerpt from Kellie’s site for details about the challenge her family is facing.) Read the rest of this entry »

Ridin’ the Pine

Many of us had aspirations of greatness when we were kids, some of us still hang onto those dreams, and some—not many—maybe even reached the lofty heights to which they aspired. Some, simply didn’t dream. Me, I dreamed, but it seems I was just another face in the crowd, wielding a bat that never quite made contact, and writing songs that never got sang. It bothered me some for a bit, but I’ve come to terms with who I am and what I’ve offered up to the world. I’ve learned to do the best I can each day, and rest assured it’s enough.
