Side streets through the city,
A surprise at every corner,
What sights and sounds to see.

A flow of people and history,
Carried through the waters of life,
As I watched, a smile came upon me.

Romance felt as couples posed,
Universal in their love of Venice,
Such tenderness as the day draws close.

Sitting by the edge with my legs out,
Water lapping at my feet,
In my mind, thankful without a doubt.

The sun rises above the rooftops,
Buildings that defy the ages,
Standing by the window as I watched,
A blend of old and new to create such wonders.

In this city that I have walked,
People passed me by,
Children running to the top,
Riding down with joyful cries.

An artistry to the chaos,
Through the seasons, autumn to fall,
Witnessing this, I feel small and lost,
Thankful to experience it all.

In life, in love, in all that we offer as such,
A beauty that cannot be easily described,
Little wonder, these memories have etched themselves forever in my heart.......

Light at the end of the darkness

I awoke to the dark,
Shadows in my room,
Trapped for I know not what,
Not knowing morn or noon.

Walking to the corner,
I sat with my head held high,
Never a thought or bother,
Witnessing a grace in the sky

A promise I hold dear,
Even in this cave, such vastness,
A light at the end of the darkness.

Work of Art

The Labor of many determined hearts,
Though never seen and seldom told,
Of tenderness, patience and such,
Allowed to ripen and aged till old,
Created to stand as a work of art!

Lover's Bridge

The locks that hold your hearts,
A promise kept within, safe,
The bindings till time do part,
Forever held in trust in Faith.

Scottish Highlands

Awed, Humbled and Inspired,
That is what God has given me,
What giants! As I stared quiet,
Laid amongst the valleys and seas.

My eyes closed as I listened,
Chill winds across my face,
My soul stirs in motion,
Birds chirping to nature's grace.

Indeed there is no greater love than this,
For I am humbled and inspired to rise,
Lifted to the peace that Jesus has given me in Life.

Night has come,
As day has gone,
Never to meet,
Till the break of dawn.

Beauty in the clouds

What view though worthy,
Can match the sights,
Of clouds that move so artfully......
