Summer Joys

Standard

Tree hearts
Tree stars
Climbing trees
Riding in toy cars

Summer shade
Summer sunshine
Summer heat
Summer smells

The joys of childhood
Summer walks

Beach Warmth

Standard

Jumping jacks on beach,
Wind whistling in ears.
Warmed up by jumping jacks,
Warmed up by Sun,
Prancing on beach.

Cloud-Covered

Standard

Seagulls fly around Sun,
As it peeks behind clouds
Can’t see seagulls.
Are they covered, too?

Beach Sunrise

Standard

Waves crash in from South
Chili breeze blows from the East
As the Sun rises

Flowering Trees

Standard

Flowers fall,
Leaves begin to bud.
Flowers made fewer,
Flowers made prettier.

Yesterday’s UU Lent Posting: Suffering

Standard

Crumpled Up Shirt

I’m a mess,

Just like this shirt.

Wet,

Ill-fitting,

Crumpled.

Tired

Worried,

Stressed.

But I did what I needed to do.

Opportunities

Standard

Seize every opportunity
That comes your way.
You may not think it’s time,
But opportunities
Never stay.

Take it
While it lasts.
It may not seem
Like the right time,
But it will be part of
Your story.
