Life is like a river

Life is like a river
The current always flows
The further down stream you get
The faster it seems to flow

Yet at times
On a gentle bend
It appears to slow
Almost stand still

Then when you look back
The past seems so distant
Children grow, too quickly
Bodies age & get creaky

Life is but a river
The current waits for no one
Yet as impatient as the river is
It’s journey is one of beauty

Rosé Sky

Morning delight, a shared masterpiece

Between the Father & his children

Given to a father and his daughter

 

What could it be?

Is Monet at work in the sky today?

Maybe a wild party in heaven left Rosé spilled on the sky

 

Possibly it is a caring gift, a pick you up for school

Or before another day of traffic chaos and the

Frustrations of working for the man

 

I enjoy these thoughts, all of them and more

Just as much as I enjoy the glory of creation

Through a blurry pre-coffee mind on a morning

The Shire of York

The depth of your green makes my heart yearn for home
My soul cherishes the moments we share
Rolling hills house untold beauty
The glories of creation never more spectacular

Sheep quietly discuss the day
While a beck winds its way
Towards a thunderous waterfall
Which feeds a magnificent oasis of ecology

Coal fire smoke hangs on the crisp air
As frost crunches underfoot
The traveler enters an ancient stone building
Welcomed by strange voices and perfect ale

Such diversity, such beauty
What comfort and peace
My mind takes me there
As I plan a visit, home to Yorkshire

A Light Went Out

Sometimes I wonder if we give entertainers too lofty of a place

In days gone by it was explorers and warriors that got the praise

Inventors and philosophers, doctors and teachers

Today a half talented “musician” or “artist”

Can climb their way to the top of some strange fortuitous mountain

 

Yet, for the many that should not be idolized

For all the “role models” that should be working a “real job”, there are the amazing few

There are the ones who give something so beautiful to the world

That we fall madly in love with them and their art

Their genius skews the balance of perspective so much

That we expect greatness from anyone even close to their field

 

The magnificent Robin Williams

Was one such person

His gifts have illuminated my life for as long as I can remember

A man I never met, who yet was a significant figure to me

Brightening the timeline of my history

He made me laugh, he made me smile, he made me think & wonder

The depths of his talents were sadly only matched by the depths of his troubles

One more beautiful depressive soul for me to relate to when others cannot comprehend

Yesterday a beautiful bright light when out

 

I pray for your grieving family, friends and fans

I know not the answers to the rules of afterlife,

While I have certainty that my faith in Christ is well founded

The grand scheme is well beyond my comprehension, as it should be

Anyone who claims to fully understand God is drowning in their own arrogance

All I know is that I am certain there are tears of laughter in heaven today

For a gift like yours and a heart like yours, should never die

Thank you for the memories, may you rest in peace my friend

The Morning Sun

The morning light pierces the clouds

Showing down golden rays

Like spotlights illuminating the ground beneath

What special few were chosen to receive

The wake up call from heaven

On this otherwise regular morning?

As the sun’s power grows

The sky takes on a marbled effect

And the brief show of morning beauty

Is put away, until the next time
