Beauty in nature

We find ourselves lost and alone sometimes

We don’t know how to cope

But that which combines

Beauty and hope

Can calm and heal the mind

Strength lies in the beauty of nature

We are never alone when we allow God to nurture

Bowmanauthor’s 4th of July Poem … Strike Up the Band!

The JOHN HANCOCK is signed

We can easily find

The names quilled in ink

But does it make you think?

Our country needs everyone

To take a deep breath, exhale

And set out on a new trail

Listen to the wind blowing through parched minds

As it clears away the boundaries and lines

We are all citizens of the United States of America

We are all one, whole, connected, searching for Utopia

There may not be Utopia, but there isn’t Dystopia

We can rearrange; we can change or stay the same

It’s all up to you

To do what you believe to be true

Every heart, every soul, every red-blooded American girl or boy

Reach out your hand; take a stand; embrace each other with love and joy

I am alone this 4th of July

But if I cry

They will be tears of redemption

That will fill my emptiness

United We Stand

Strike Up the Band!

Into the darkness… (to be continued)

Into the darkness, 6-1-18I want to apologize to all the wonderful people whom I have not seen their blogs in the past few days, few weeks. As soon as my sight returns, I will have a field day of catching up!

With empathy, Deborah A. Bowman

Alone to Face Another Day…

Alone…

Lonely days and empty nights…

Cautious dawns to set to rights…

Silence…

Hesitant reticence…

Hope for resilience…

 

One is here and one is gone…

Even though no one was wrong…

Put one foot before the other…

Take a breath, then another…

Silence…

Seeking God’s guidance…

 

Like a single boat close to shore…

No need to ask for more…

Another dawn, another day…

Searching for a different way…

To go on…

Alone…
