Poetic Haul #007 : The Likes of Me

like a priceless figurine-
hard to find and have,
takes effort to take care of,
but so easy to break

like a hard-earned property-
left to rot for a while,
easily replaced by RFO,
to fit present wants/needs

like the last of all roses-
patiently grown,
thorns endured for its lasting beauty,
left to wither for sunflowers

like a music box of sentimental value-
that used to be the sweetest melody,
tiresomely shut close,
to hear a different tune

like the oldest favorite toy-
loved, treasured, kept
outgrown because of boredom,
replaced with newer ones on the shelf

like the winter promise-
making fire in twos,
but one fled to summer's paradise
and the other left to die in the cold

like almost winning a three-legged race-
way past many obstacles
though victory still seems far
but the other signed up for another race

The Wonder Human

To be human has its complexities and frailties. It almost feels natural to succumb to life's struggles and disarray, that we tend to forget how God has made us to be filled with wonder. . . and this blog aims to create vivid reminders of what we should never lose, what we should continually celebrate, what we should seek, in every musing, experience, milestone, chapter, and blessing. More about me HERE


Psalms 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Job 5:9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

Psalm 71:17 Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
