SPRING! SPRING! SPRING!

SPRING HAIKU

Early spring morning,
raindrops glitter on the poplars,
lupines sprinkle hillsides.

Wearing orange-striped vests,
cups open to drink sunshine,
a rainbow of tulips.

Snow twirls on breeze,
hundreds of apple blossoms
tossing petals to the earth.

Easter cantata,
robins perform in the hills,
daffodils dancing.

Welcome Spring!

I hope all my blogger friends will have a beautiful and splendid spring.  I'm so glad to see spring again.  It gives me hope that "all things work together for the good to those who love God and called to Him."  We indeed serve a living Lord!  Amen!

Frozen Fairyland


The rising sun paints
the snow-capped mountains
with broad brush strokes,
pink and purple shades.

Under the veils of lace,
white silence fills the hills.
Walking through the forest,
footsteps crunch snow.

A cardinal rustles
powder from the pines,
berries frozen on holly;
winter carves ice sculptures

on Hyatt-Mill Creek.
Three deer appear,
icicles dazzle on roofs,
wood smoke curving heavenward.
