My Father

Since Dad passed
I call Mom daily
Her constant worries
Fears foisted
Upon my heart
Accepted when I was young
Making me afraid
Today I fear not
Not now
Not any more
No longer
Than a moment 
When I know
In both light and shadow
God is with me
With her
I try to convey the truth
 God is my Father
My Dad and my father
Her husband and eternal love
Is embraced and welcomed by Him
Believe, Mom.
Believe . . .

To Snow or Not Snow

To snow or not to snow
Forecast in the balance
Computer models blamed
As why we're left to chance
Of winter's blindside
Yet seasoned, we prepare
For Snowmageddon new
Defenses armed with care
That we survive demise
Of southland by surprise

Reflections When Beginning a New Chapter

The words manifest
On page pristine
Inspired, gathered,
A meaning gleaned.
Burning bush reveals
The spoken Word,
The Word eternal
Speaking here.  Word
Without beginning,
End.  Searing souls.
God's great love and grace
The seas will part.
