Fascination

Just like contemplation,
Is fascination,
Beholding
True

Beauty,
In all things, it’s apparent,
When you stare
Into what’s already there

Just like the single
Flame
We might take for granted,
Or

The star
Shooting across the sky
Looking
For a reason why

Existence
Is always so persistent,
Striving
And driving humanity

Towards the heavens
Just like a feather,
Loosed
From

Someone’s fingertips,

Like when we
Were little, and
All of life was a

Playground,

Before the
Sound
Of another round
Of detritus

Fell
From the tree
Upon the ground, and

We looked on
In astonishment,
As the witness
Of all the bliss

And blessings,
For which we did see

Fascination
Did hold our attention,
While the world
Did continue

To go round and round,

And we left the playground
For a life full of
Adult things,
Which
Held

Less fascination,
Yet, when you really look, and
See, you will find
That fascination

Still holds true,

When you
Let go, and stay present
To all the beauty,
That’s right in front of you

Your majesty,
I do see while
sitting under the
shady tree.

As I look out
at Your crests,
and hold true to
the feeling in my chest.

A beauty beyond
comprehension.

On land,
we only ever see

a fraction

of Your love
and devotion,

which You send
to us all, even
when we least expect
it.

And, that’s when it’s
most detected
by the senses,
even if we don’t

know

what’s protecting
us
in each moment.

You know,
and always have,
for your Grace is
everlasting, like

a strand
that goes on
forever and ever
until the very end.

And, then?

It all starts again.

Earth

We walk upon
Your flesh,
In so many different
Iterations,

Some dry,
Some damp, and yes,

As we tramp

From one place
To the next
We musn’t ever forget

Your Presence

Taking in new
Seeds, and giving
Birth to new deeds

Of all the fauna
And flora, and, oh,
What an aura

Of beauty,

I do see,
As I walk upon
Your shoulders

Bearing the brunt
Of all the worlds
Boulders
And holders

Of humanity

Is it enough
What we’ve done
For Thee?

Ah, alas, I
Completely agree

There is so much
More we can do, to
Ensure
Your living trust

Bears fruit
Forevermore,

Under the sycamore,

I stand, relating
This experience
As a simple man

Knowing only so much
For in God, I do trust,
And do know this,

My friend,

We must take a hand
In ensuring
That Your land

Is always able
To continue to stand

Shadows

Linger in places
We dare not
Look, and

Yet they continue
To follow, like a
Mirror

Top to bottom

You move this way
It moves that
Way-

-ward toward another
Glimpse of beauty
In repose
Of

The splendor at
Your door

Afraid to answer
One and all
And, yet

The call comes again
And, again,
Without
A

Forestalled lingering
Imagination
Full
Of

Contemplation, and, yes
Even remorse
And, of
Course

Alone you are not
In your journey
Toward the
Lighted

Hall
As your shadow
Dances at the ball
Intertwined with

You,

Hand-and-hand
Just like a
Prefect

Symphony
As they play their
Last tune, and the
Music fades to black

The shadow is part
Of you, friend,
Embrace it
With a

Fervor of no
Compare
And, rest easy

In knowing this
Dance will last

As the shadow plays
With light in
A splendid
Contrast

Colors

Rainbow hues
Found in the dew of life
Whether there is strife
Or multiple aspects of splendor

Possibilities rife

Of our collective nobility
In all humility, and
Love for all that’s there
A very common affair

Majesty and bounty everywhere

Take in
All those colors you see
Even when your sight
Is hidden from thee

Know the moment lasts
But an instant, here
And gone, then
Born anew, which

We may call a new dawn

Of your story, which
May be hidden from view
Lost in the boulders of life

Know though that
What is lost is always found
Sometimes even upon the ground

As we take in the beauty all around

Breathe life in
A very respective detective
Taking time to pause
Reflect
And collect the mysterious cause

Of your life
Found in every color
In every tree and flower

A power so immense
It always passes the test
And is never second best, so

Be with that which you know,
Feel, and see, always upon that tree
Of renewal
All the beautiful colors found anew

A beauty, my friend, are you

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone.
