from myopic perspective

seek wisdom beyond

look in mirror of God’s word

abundant vision for life

(James 1:22-25)

japanese garden

or hobbit homestead in shire

color of summer

pause to peek through the keyhole

smell blossoms of paradise

 

Kiwinana challenges us to write a tanka with “color” and “summer”.

silent sabbath

 

laid down life for friends

blood congealed, stiff body wrapped

stone seals death in tomb

soldiers wipe spear and spikes clean

women grieve over spices

 

winged departure

Our youngest son graduates from his homeschool studies in May.

 

robins weave their nest

blue-egged hatchlings cheep hunger

parents hunt for grubs

 

vital, patient flight lessons

fledglings leave safety of home

 
 

walking partners

turn off devices

put on comfortable shoes

meet ourselves outdoors

inspire real love of nature

learn the real nature of love
