It’s best when
It’s not the hard places
That stand out.

Icy winds gather
Treasures by dumpster
Most will miss

Snowflakes on trashcans

Searching for her God,
She captures His signature –

Infinite Palette (Sonnetina Tre for a Creator)

As I absorb the beauty of the earth –
The vast array of color, feel, and taste
My senses quicken as I deem its worth
I pause to grasp this gift with which we’re graced.

What love has our Creator, that He chose
To lavish us with splendor, needlessly?
This symphony of love that He composed
Delights and serenades unceasingly.

Magnificence displayed in all there is.
The palette, infinite – the pleasure, His.

Senryu for Autumn’s Hills, 2014

hills

I.

The drone of demands

Briefly switched with hushed stillness

As leaves fall like snow

II.

Horns, sirens, red lights

Renounced for crimson-dappled

Pine needle footpaths

III.

Here, silence is found

Not in lack of sound, but in

Raindrops on crisp leaves.

IV.

Crickets and songbirds

Harmonize with the tall pines,

Singing as they sway.

V.

Cabin-bound evening

As fierce autumn storms descend,

But can’t dampen joy.

VI.

Unseasonal warmth

Gives way to plummeting temps.

Two hearts find kindling.

VII.

Sizzling bacon

Crackling fire in the hearth

Savoring morning

VIII.

In vain, camera’s eye

Tries to mimic that which is

Creator-endowed

IX.

Sun warms exposed skin

As chilled air caresses same.

Season of wonder.

X.

Grateful for God’s gifts

As autumn’s palette fades, and

Our road now leads home

Where hope finds me_edited-1
