In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Moved to Tears.”
Expression of heartfelt gratitude
Display of exceptional fortitude
A compliment that brightens eyes
Genuine advice from the wise
Love that all boundaries transcends
A guilty man’s efforts to make amends
Smiles with sadness hidden in the eyes
The familiar warmth of family ties
I’m moved to tears whenever I find
Above expressions that stay in my mind.

I recently visited Niagara Falls (again), and the sheer energy with which the water drops in to mist below is breathtaking. Here are some pictures, and of course, a verse!
Shaping past, present, future
Of the earth, and our lives
Can destroy us, or let us thrive
They always remind us
Of our place in the universe
Use them, harness them, we may
But they have the power, they can sway
Fortunes of men and nations
In unpredictable directions..
They represent beauty, raw and pure
Even when their destructive power we endure.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Scale.”
A speck so minute
In the universe so vast
Existing in the blink of an eye
Of time, moving by so fast.
I have but a moment
In the cosmic calendar
To live all my life
And enjoy the earth’s splendor.
I am a microscopic dot
On the scale of the earth
Can I leave a mark for generations
That is of some worth?
A voice inside me answered
Of course you can, it said
Being small and short-lived
Are not barriers to getting ahead.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Depth.”
Deep in the crevices of my heart
That is where my demons reside
Threatening to tear me apart..
But in those depths also hide
Rivers of love and compassion
Battling these demons of mine,
Keeping them in dormant fashion
They maintain a balance fine.

Serenity to me conjures up images of candles, peaceful birds and animals, and tranquil waters.
