Inspirational Poems

COLUMBINE

Soft fragrance
Wafting from a bloom
Perfectly created.

Tissue paper thin;
Of many hues.
Scent of loveliness . . .

God's creation
My delight:
A columbine.

LIGHT OF MY PATH

Sun filters through
A majestic forest.
It beckons me to come.

The way is dark,
And I'm afraid.
Still, it calls to me.
God provides His Light
To show me the way
Through life's shadows.

He lights the path
Ahead of me
And He will lead me on.

QUIET WATER

In my mind, I see
The quiet water of a pond.
"Come, rest," I hear it say,
"Sit beside me."

Soft winds caress the pool,
Sending ripples on their way.

Peace, rest, refreshment
Is offered by the emerald water.

Quieting inner unrest,
It revitalizes and cools,
As it calls me to its side.

SPRINGTIME BEAUTY

Splashes of purple
Radiant in the sun
Lure the bees and the butterfly.

Spring flowers
Shout aloud
In a sun-soaked spring day.
 
STORMS OF LIFE

Wild-looking clouds threaten.
A storm is on its way.
"Not again, dear Lord,"
Is all I find to say.

Though I'm shaken and disheveled,
He always sees me through.
Why do I always argue?
It's a foolish thing to do.

Storms of life come often,
But then they always go.
He allows them in my life,
Because He loves me so.

Nothing He sends can hurt me.
I'm safe within His arms.
I'll rest in that assurance
That not a thing can harm.

SUNRISE SPLENDOR

Billowing masses piled high
Mirror the splendor of the sunrise.

Across the still dark sky
Reds, pinks and gold streak the clouds.

A palette of color,
Brushed lavishly by an unseen hand.

Colorful fingers reach across the sky
Exclaiming: It is day!

WISPY CLOUDS AND GENTLE BREEZES

Warm spring sunshine
Shines through wispy clouds.

Gentle breezes stir
Newborn leaves.

Splashes of color cry out
In silent beauty.

I hear God's sweet murmur
In the melody of birdsong.

My heart is calmed,
Yet, filled with exaltation!
This tender side of Spring
Gives hope and life.

Reminding me
Of resurrection and peace.
