Twice

Combining photography and poetry this week...

The moon was full as I drove past St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church and the road empty, so I stopped and rolled down my window, snapping two shots, knowing full well my little phone camera would probably not do the scene justice.  See what you think♫♪

TWICE

Perfection, attained twice in this world-
I feel prompted to point this out.
With all the ideals we aspire to unfurl
It’s been done, twice by my count.

First, just after time began
When creation was complete
God Almighty rested after seven spans
Not one iota needed to be added, it was sweet.

The other time?  When Christ sat,
Indicating His job completion.
Nothing more was required, that was that!
His deeds culminating in The Resurrection.

So far there have been two times of perfection.
We strive toward heaven, knowing it is won.
Christ rose from the dead, securing mankind’s salvation.
Our future secured, may we now focus on adoring the One who got it done.

Satan's Standing Room

Mostly for the Easter season, but also to participate in a couple of blog hops, I wrote a poem...
The abstract is melting snow crystals that I enhanced with blue....It seemed to suit the poem.

Satan's Standing Room


‘No rest for the wicked’
So the saying goes
As a gleeful Satan runs to and fro.

With access to the very inner circle,
Our Satan tattles his tales
Of never ending woes, of all that fails.

Meanwhile, the One rests at the Right Hand
Sitting, relaxed, knowing all his heirs are tools
Biding time in heaven, awaiting His footstool.

For Hell will be standing room only
No rest, nor relief, no way to cope.
When Christ sat down, his work finished,
Redeeming mankind, our true hope.







 Happy Easter Everyone♫♪

Yesterday's rainy mirror/view out my side rear view
It really helps to get some distance on the abstract to see the silo's silhouette♪


I stopped and took the same shot today, which was sunny, but windy!

Rain Check


1. Like a raindrop marking its way with
Stops and starts,
You have found a warm space
at the bottom of my heart.

2. Like a teardrop coursing its way down,
Falls and drips
But is wiped away just
at the moment I feel gypped.

I am given my little stub which
gives me power claiming my item.

Refrain:
Rain check.
Always miss my life time
Ticket in hand
for the next in line.

Rain check.
Standing in my life line
No one calls my name
for next in line.

3. Patiently I wait for the day when
all my tickets
can be validated. Will that
take place in this little lifetime.
Only you can redeem my rain check.
Oh that...Refrain

Will you
Validate my rain check?
You are my only
Rain check.

Quogue

Joining Alphabe-Thursday, letter Q

Visited Long Island this past year and enjoyed scurrying around the small community of East Quogue, NY (pronounced kwog).
The Long Island Exchange site gives a short background of the original inhabitants:

The Native Indian name of Quaguanantuck was shortened and changed to Quogue soon after the lands that form the town of today, changed hands and became European settler territory. Western civilization has never looked back since in this town that upholds sturdy values and the charm of colonized estates.

Took a photo of an isolated beach and played around with my phone apps....
can imagine the life led before the settlers came to stay.
