Fall

 

It’s finally here, the fall season.

The weather is cold, and it is time to wear jackets again.

The leaves have turned brown and gold, and the sky gets grey and cloudy.

It is the kickoff for the holiday season, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Crowds of people rush into coffee shops for warm drinks with friends and family.

The year is almost done, getting ready to come to a close and start over.

It is time to decorate the house for the different holidays.

It’s finally here, the fall season.

 

What the Shadows Hold

 

The mouth of the cave is a jagged ark.

It sits on the shore of a lonely lake.

Unknown paths and creatures lie in the dark.

Stray dogs flock to the cave to simply bark.

Until they’re spooked by the hiss of a snake.

The mouth of the cave is a jagged ark.

Carved there on the entrance is the name Clark.

Below the name, it says the myths aren’t fake.

Unknown paths and creatures lie in the dark.

The cave has scratches made with something sharp.

Years ago, the cave was inside the lake.

The mouth of the cave is a jagged ark.

The change in feeling in the cave is stark

like the cave is the cause of much heart ache.

Unknown paths and creatures lie in the dark.

The cave is not meant for the faint of heart

for the shadows hold a menacing shape.

The mouth of the cave is a jagged ark.

Unknown paths and creatures lie in the dark.

Always Waiting

It’s God’s great love that we aren’t consumed

because His great compassion never fails.

He’s always faithful, even if we bail.

But because He loves, and we are pursued,

our faith grows weak, and God’s love is abused.

God showed faith when His hands were pierced with nails.

God runs to us . . . yet for Him, we are snails.

We, as Christians, should love and not misuse.

God always loves us – so why don’t we trust?

The Lord is good to those who hope in Him.

We should always pray – not just when we must.

When God lives in us, the change can begin –

The change that helps us refuse sin and lust.

God knocks on the door; we must let Him in.
