balloon is us

 

it’s

a ball

the globe

planet earth

“the balloon we live on”

 


A quote from my 3 yr. old grandson, Justus ¬†ūüôā

sterling elocution

 

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. 

Like Solomon, who wrote these words, I find soul satisfaction in beautiful speech.  As a writer, I search for delicious words to be framed in serendipitous syntax.  I hope to pick ripe thoughts, artfully arrange them in woven-word baskets and serve a taste of lingual delights.  I admire skilled poets and appreciate how different poetic brushstrokes reveal textured perspectives; unique angles on life’s truth.  Flighty images of the mind settle to roost in solid words. Sentinel ideas on signposts outline silent spaces for contemplation.  Hand-in-hand, we meander world with senses alert to the wild call of hurricane winds or the fresh whisper of gentle breezes, then collectively record richly scripted delicacies for our hungry souls to feast on.

*Proverbs 25:11, BRG

earth’s richest

black prairie sod

iowa: ‚Äúbeautiful land‚ÄĚ

created by God

claimed by man

wrested from dakota hand

busted, homesteaded,

settled, plowed and

tightly fenced now

as livestock farmers

raise calves from cows

how long sustainable?

dust bowl-like shroud

wind so untamable

we’re losing ground!

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

                                        (Mahatma Ghandi)

 

let us love, brothers

find our unity with joy

harmony in Christ

 

repent, believe, become real

let soul¬†revival begin…

 


Connecting with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s prompt today…many directions you could go with the theme of happiness! ¬†
