Droplets in Air

The breeze likes to gossip

And play with my hair

As droplets do tricks

Upon rocky stairs

Hear them whisper and complain

Like a chorus girl’s refrain

Windy days are for dancing

Like reeds and sand

Rainy days are for singing

Under blankets and cover bands

Air and Water

Avatars of change

Peacefully adapting

As earth and fire

Fall away

Rocky Paths

How do rocks go astray?

How do they crumble and erode?

Broken crags and fallen stones

Protect and hold on to

Cliffs and slippery slopes

In anxious absence

Flounder and fracture and fester in mold

These rocks break and they batter

Building upon buildings

Mountains and shrines

Dark fallen towers

Of forfeited godliness

If only rocks could speak,

If they could sing and skip

Upon the highways of life

Then silence wouldn’t be home to stony hearts

And narrow paths wouldn’t be so cold

Bed of Blades

Soft but sharp

The loss of unseen ground

The fallen whims of the living

Unbroken and upright

An invitation to surrender

Into a flinching embrace

The fabricated unawares

Of accosting pests

Makeshift bedding

Lost, lush decorations

of many colored leaves

Sunk and crushed

By unconscious feats

A Christmas among the Trees

I live in the tropics, 

Barren of snow,  full of Christmas spirit.

The sun, hot and humbling

 Makes me thankful for the trees 

Just shady plants, no shady plans, 

The opposite of a busy bee. 

I praise the Great Creator.

His Son, the savior from Man’s Fall.

I feel the palms surround me, 

Flowers, grasses and vines abound

I remember His journey to Jerusalem,

His determined steps on sacred ground.

I  adore the peace, the not so quiet,

The birds call and other ambient sounds, 

The running water, the playful breeze,

Uncrowded delights, and  time with family.

I live close to earthly paradise, here in the Philippines

But I await the one on the other side, I hear it’s Heavenly.
