Tuesday Morning Meditation

Yes God spoke to me
The second time in three months
I was listening

I am listening
The message is clear and bright
I will trust in you

For the benefit
Spirit leads and prospers me
I now preach the good news

Morning, March 26

Three gifts almost gone
The lifeless frozen garden
The sleeping brown grass

The remaining snow
Persists covering daisies
Patient gardening

Thank You, God

So thankful today
Our dog Freddy is okay
Attacked yesterday

In a parking lot
A large white pit bull
Leaped and lunged

At our dogs neck this
after being groomed for first time
we stopped at pet store

for treats and toys and
the monster ran from its car
and attacked Freddy

It all happened so fast
I grabbed Freddy's leash and
Lifted him high to the sky

Putting myself between
the foaming monster
and my little dog

The owner of the dog
ran over and grabbed
its collar, yanking the monster

away saying he plays
with children just fine but
does not like other dogs

then why was this dog
at the largest pet food store
in Western Massachusetts

And the man with the tattoos
and gold plated teeth and the poor dog
walked away and drove away

First Day Of Spring, Part 1

Smoky gray morning
Woke dreaming of daffodils
Snow still dots the lawn

And what of tulips
Walking my dog this morning
I imagine them

Lollypops so bright
Soon they will appear to me
Still in winter coat

6:30 A.M.

Sunlight through shutters
Freddy barking in his crate
Doves cooing on roof

Morning by morning
God's gracious mercies appear
There is always more

2:00 P.M.

Cat and dog sleeping
Next to me in my office
Outside birds flutter

At the bird feeder
Five finches and two sparrows
Beautiful Monday

7 A.M.

A stinging cold wind
Eyes tearing walking my dog
Coffee calls me home

Deep blue sky morning
Three robins hopping in yard
Distant train whistle
