Chameleon

IMG_5004.JPG
Blend me in, creation find, colours and hues, come rain or shine,
The changing light, its lows and highs, trusting all the world is Thine.
With ready tongue, my turret eyes, blessings caught, how sweet, divine!
Morning rise and evening sigh, Your watchful gaze, Life’s grand design.

Blood Brothers

The child, he walks among us, no guile or false pretence,
Looking for that someone, with whom life’s game to tend.
A friend to last the seasons, to walk with, boldly stand,
Their journey so beginning, as brothers, rule the land.
~ D.F.

Naked

IMG_4967.JPG
Behold me in my nakedness, darkness, plain to see,
Wrong and sin, misgivings, none are hid from Thee.
Flickering in the trying wind, quick, then set me free,
Extinct this lowly flame of mine, now to Your mercy flee.
~ D.F.

Summer Chic

IMG_4937.JPG
Dancing in the sun, see her soaking in the heat,
Candy for the eye, oh what a dose of summer chic.
Dress so softly flowing, how form and function meet,
An air of sweet seduction, come worship at her feet.
~ D.F.

River Wild

IMG_4939.JPG
Take me down this river wild, my fainting heart to lead,
Diving into treacherous turns, all at a breakneck speed.
Then find in me, a trusting soul, the rapids bravely meet,
Life with all its twists and feigns, to faith and courage cede.
~ D.F.

Little Things

IMG_4907.JPG
Enough for me, the little things, those graces oft unseen,
Flowers by the country road, the hills of carpet green.
Softly flows that cheery brook, its crystal waters clean,
Hymns of praise at eventide, as day slips from the scene.
~ D.F.

City of Light

IMG_4880.JPG
O flee this home of iniquity, that City of Light to find,
Where Hope, a blazing hearth, Faith, its roads are lined.
There the godly shall gather, none wounded left behind,
And its Rule shall be of Charity, and Peace to all mankind.
~ D.F.
