Wild & Placid – God’s Handiwork

 

In response to:

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #283 Placid & Wild

 

Like active children, streams run,

Wild in storms, so fun.

Yet placid in summer days.

Streams run quiet like the bays.

Or roar like ocean seas – BIG waves,

Both God’s handiwork.IMG_6147

Ode to Cold 2016 and 2019

Ode to Cold 201673475043_528489464362501_3574659520493780992_n

Bright and sunny though it may be,

Winter’s here – it is clear to see.

The sun lies; it’s not warm in the least

Temperature is not fit for man or beast.

It threatens to snow

As the northern wind blows,

Oh no, here comes a blizzard

I’m COLD right down to the gizzard!

It is not very cold in 2019 so far!

Snow has yet to make a real mark.

Is this but the calm before the storm?

Before the cold arrives and takes its true form.

Or will it be a winter gentle and mild?

Similar to that of a newborn baby child.

Nature vs. Nurture

The age old debate

of nature versus nurture.

I say its equal!

In my opinion,

Fifty percent each is right.

Though nobody knows!

Nurture –  family, friends, life events and environment

A Different Kind of Hunting – Speechless

No gun or bow and arrow, my weapon is none at all,

My kind of hunting consists of a phone camera,

Words were not present when I saw the deer-so straight and tall,

I was just rendered speechless as I lifted the phone to capture its majesty.
