Leaf me alone!

Leaf Me Alone!

A Leaf Poem, by Oma

Hello whispy, crunchy, conical friend I found today!

I see your autumn leftover beauty,

I am mesmerized by your dancing whimsy,

and wait with baited breath for you to toss in the breeze, yet again.

For then I will chase after you,

and keep time with your step!

Reaching,

Yes, reaching to touch you,

my frolicking friend. Continue reading “Leaf me alone!”

The Lamb

Little Lamb who made thee 
Dost thou know who made thee 
Gave thee life & bid thee feed. 
By the stream & o’er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing wooly bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice!
Little Lamb who made thee 
Dost thou know who made thee
Little Lamb I’ll tell thee,
Little Lamb I’ll tell thee!
He is called by thy name,
For he calls himself a Lamb: 
He is meek & he is mild, 
He became a little child: 
I a child & thou a lamb, 
We are called by his name.
Little Lamb God bless thee. 
Little Lamb God bless thee.

wherever there is love…

Wherever there is love there is no fear at all.

It’s another Wednesday for Saint Maria Faustina KoWalska (why else,) with a brief reflection…

“Great love can change small things into great ones,

and it is only love which lends value to our actions.”

(303) St. Faustina KoWalska’s Diary

“Where’d everyone go???”

You are near,

even if we don’t see you.

You are with us,

even if you’re far away.

You’re in our hearts,

in our thoughts, 

in our life,

even if we cannot be together.

Because under God’s blue sky

we’ll always be united, 

but a momentary heart-flight away,

one from the other.

And though the miles may be many

we are (always) just a short prayer away,

just a little shared giggle away,

just a sunrise seen “where-ever,”

under the same big sky together! 

Baby,  the sun will always rise…

no matter how long the night.

Who are you missing under the big blue sky today?

hugs n’ blessings to everyone whose distance apart is shortened by love!!

“If you lose your way…and your heart is torn…May my love sing loud…louder than any thunderstorm. Sometimes it feels like forever, when it’s dark outside.  Baby, the sun will rise. Baby, the sun will rise. However long the night.  And when you feel afraid.  And you see shadows on the wall.  Wherever there is love, there is no fear at all.”   -JJ Heller
