colors soothing balm

river flows to sea

swift sunset follows sunrise

all our seasons fade

driftwood shadows


time drifts out with tide

gnarled remnant of bare tree

left on sunset beach


stories etched in dry bones’ grain

memories imprint wet sand

beauty of sunset

on san diego mountains

purple shades of love


palm tree silhouettes

jacuzzi bubbles…up gaze

bright smile slice of moon


sweet birthday passes

gracious love touches my life

our time in God’s hands


Thank you to my blogger friend, Ngobesing Romanus, for his best wishes:

Check out his blog… Success Inspirer 🙂

fire water


He torches water

vapor clouds, igniting to

bold tangerine flames.




The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

( Psalm 19:1 )

power-driven fowl

in rays of a setting sun

return flight to nesting ground

jet-bird song follows contrail.

dance recital


Bright sliver of moon

in rosy sky at dusk

gleams sideways smile,

poised, waiting…

grinning confidently

as tired old sun

burns down slowly,

limps below dark edge

of corn rows’ silhouette stage.

Day’s number is done…

time for moonlight’s moves!
