A Blackjack Morning


Good morning from the lakeside deck ~

This morning ~
I sit deep into these Ozark woods
High upon a steep hill
Overlooking my sweet Lake Ann

Stark black branches
Hang and curl through
Heavily wooded forests
Of hickories & blackjack oaks
Backlit by new morning rays
Framing our quiet cove below

My spirit finds peace here
But it is a daily struggle
To return my well being
I tell myself
Everything will be OK
Things will work out
In time and in love

Then somehow my spirit rises
And I too can reach out and walk
Through these woods
Touched by their warmth
And ever giving life

Here ~
I draw from heaven and earth
I can find eternity
In the eye and hands of God’s green earth

Praying an unceasing prayer today ~
I pray for God’s blessings
May angels surround us
May the saints pray for us
May peace surround my family
And protect them
