The Not So Silent Storm

Another attack …

More and more senseless death

of innocent people

People enjoying a holiday

People not suspecting

the horror to come

 

I don’t understand …

None of us understand

why the world is

screaming in death

and destruction

Can we survive this

war between religions

 

No wonder Jesus wept …

He knew what was to come …

Stranger in My Home

Stranger in My Home

On days like this

Nights when I cannot sleep

Wandering from room to room

Searching …

For something …

Anything that is familiar

I am a stranger in my home

Memories follow me

like ghosts

Floating through my mind

Confusing me …

Haunting me …

Keeping me awake …

There is nothing familiar

Nothing left that I remember

Only a house with emptiness

yet filled with things

things I don’t need

And …

Cannot release

Who have I become?

Does it matter?

There is only me

in my solitude

But …

alone …

never lonely …

Joy in a Jar

Joy in a Jar

Flowers are an important

part of my life

They bring me happiness

when nothing else can

For country girls

there is nothing better

than a simple arrangement

a handful of flowers dropped

casually into a Mason Jar

to make us smile …

Darkness

Darkness

Hiding in deep shadows

The darkness creeps in

Allowing me to retreat

From the rest of the world

 

My place of safety

A sanctuary when life

Becomes too much

 

I don’t fear darkness

For it is there to

Protect me until

I am ready to seek

The light

And…

Return to what is

Waiting within my

Reach

And…

Walk forward

Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 46 – Solitude

Solitude

Much of my life has

been spent being alone

But …

Rarely lonely

 

Some people and I am one

need a time of solitude of

being alone … one on one

with nature to be able to

recharge…

create…

unwind…

find ourselves …

 

Relish and enjoy those

periods of solitude

You will most likely find

something you are not

looking for

Yet …

Something that will bring

you much joy

enrich your life in ways

you never expected

 

If you rarely have

personal solitude

begin carving out little

snippets of time just

for you and experience

the wonder of you …

I will be life changing …
