She had a title

She gave it away

I saw it in the news today

The cash allowed her

She passed up too

She followed her heart

For love true

And so the princess is a royal no more

Let’s hope for her good things are in store




FOWC with Fandango — Title


Umbrella, Metal, Rainy Weather, Rain

Skeletal framework

Scaffolding secure

Mere rods and hinges

To make it endure

It is not these that keep us dry

The rain trough them would go right by

But the fabric without support

The storm to thwart

Would be quite useless

And my trip I’d abort



Sheep, Farmer, Shepherd, Agriculture

The Lord is my shepherd

Over my wants and desires He does guide

For all that is necessary – He will abundantly provide

He gives me rests in meadows green

All my burdens there to lay down

Fresh waters to revive me

To cool my throat and crown

My weary soul and spirit

He does repair – restore

For it is His name that I bear,

Who could ask for any more?

In ways holy I will travel,

And through Him, others will I bless

His staff of guidance nurtures me

And from my worries – gives much needed rest

My enemies can merely watch

As the Lord showers on me good things

Abundance of blessing overflow

No matter what life might bring

For all my days – on these I can depend

His promise on that His word contains

Until heavenly realms I finally enter –

At this earthly life’s inevitable end


Thanks for the insights Pastor Vince.


Time, Clock, Man, Universe, Transience

I have a little question

An inquiry of some import

Was this how you planned it

Or just a settlement to which you did resort?

If it was the thing designed

The goal to which you were intent

How did you come to this,

Reality you did invent?

An answer now just give me

Tell me your responses true

Is it a scheme I too can follow

Or was it just created for you?

Answer now my question

Please tell me what to do




Nature, Tree, Dawn, Landscape, Panorama

From black to grey and grey to red

Streaks of orange and purple form overhead

The eastern sky comes awake

As I begin my journey at daybreak

As the world’s slumber comes to an end

To our daily labours we must now attend

Time to rise, to stretch and yawn

And welcome yet another dawn


Getting Up

Stephen Kidd

Getting up is overrated

I know this cuz I’ve contemplated

The effort required

Even if inspired

To leave the place where I’m sated

Getting up is overrated

After all it’s here that I waited

For someone to come by

Then I might try

To leave my comfy spot vacated
