God’s Children

I will be adding to this page as time goes on. I will number these poems in chronological order.

#1 Goodnight

Sweet dreams my love and kindness
may you rest well, as you are blessed.

I hope you will remember the climbs,
no matter the falls or how many times.

May you remember being so brave
and the kind Friends and the first forgive.

Your daily smile and essence to be.
May you see flowers, birds and trees.
I love you my, Dear, with all my-being.

#2 The Joy Sonnet

There were birds and butterflies,
rainbows and wildflowers,
sunsets and radiant skies
and sandcastle’s with towers.

There were fancy tea parties
and city night park walks.
There are crayon hearts
and goodnight sweetheart talks.

I find in you my most dearest love
and spot you out like a Morning Dove.
We make watermelon wedges
and top Sundaes with Fudge.

Each day is a new blessing
and you tug at my heart strings.

#3 A Child’s Day

Sun hats and morning glories,
a day of singing breezes
and picking fruit like blueberries.

Cakes and strawberry pies,
lots of ribbon and ties.
The lemonade is from hand,
as well as our pointed fans.

There’s Peter Pan and Captain Hook,
while we watch out for Tinker Bell.
For sure, we can never tell ~

Is it fairy dust or sunlit sparkle flurries?
It’s time in a day for endless stories,
in Praise of the day for no hurries.

#4 Painting Lesson, for my daughter

I bought a stack of paper for you,
to imagine and color and glue.

I know you love unicorns and
the color blue, so get your stand

and easel because your off to
paint too. The shades and hue

you choose of blue and purple are
magnificent and nothing can compare
to the marvelous and talented you.

#5 Nature Sonnet

To follow nature,
we hold our children’s
hand to God’s door.
As this all matures,
with the weeping willow
and the joy in heart flowers,
we brush the Yellow Poplar.
To find the green showing

its vastness. Beginning,
with the greenhouse
to the color painted orchards,
the sun dances around
and the moon a time chart.
It is here, I say, Amen.

#6 Orbiting

What if I could bring
you to the stars,
blast us out this thing
going off the radars?

I would hold your hand
and chart the foreign terrain.
I’m sure it would be grand,
out of this mundane.

We could learn about orbits’
this way of being together
always. We would whisper it’s
beautiful in an orbiting year.

This place with no time,
unlike home at bedtime.

Perhaps, we’d return from our star –
having had our light turn to bloom,
when we were so way out far –
say goodnight, sweetheart,
since this night is all illume.

#7 The Dandelion Fairy Sonnet

The dandelion fairy
is perhaps the buzziest
of the bunch, weaving
between bumble bees
and dragonflies, yellow
misting lawns with hope.
Her radiant flowers, petals
so delicate like raindrops.

A wing caught in splendor
the mother and child
pick dandelions, morning
moving to their fingertips
the fairy flutters on,
for the next sundrops’ child.

#8 The Rainbow Fairies

Red is for the beginning of the rainbow
Orange is for the Autumn leaves
Yellow is for sugar lemonade
Green is for the growing grass
Blue is for the big blue sky
Purple is for the soft sweet plum
White is for the winter snow

We spread joy after rain
and all that color’s can contain.
We bring hope to the sky,
with beauty hard to deny.

After the fairies flutter away,
they’ll have made a beautiful day,

#9 The Animal Friends

There once was a Giraffe
who was known for his laugh.

The lion however,
was a serious endeavor.

While the Monkey
could hang and be free.

Where as the penguin
didn’t know where to begin.

And the dolphin?
They called him Munchkin,
in which made him smile and grin.

However, the sweet donkey
you see,
just wanted to be taken seriously.

Whether out at the Zoo,
or alone and feeling blue,
remember everyone,
the animals are your friends too.

# 10 A Peculiar Fish

Once there was a peculiar fish –
his name was wiggly fish.
His best friend was goosefish,
who had a pet catfish.
His best friend’s favorite color was whitefish,
while wiggly’s favorite color was bluefish.
At night he wishes upon starfish
and believes in God and has a angelfish.
He was very strong, so no one called him a weakfish.
Wiggly’s cousin had a pet dogfish,
who loved reading about kingfish!
Wiggly traveled all the seas with globefish
and loved warm weather with other sunfish.
He helped build walls with rockfish and
he swam in circles and did not want to be a flatfish!

He loves balloons and is helped by blowfish
and fashions giving gifts with ribbonfish.
He doesn’t fight, especially with swordfish!
He loves peanut butterfish and jellyfish ~
and knows how to ride a bicycle and peddlefish.
Wiggly always admired lionfish
and had lots of money and goldfish.
He loves his Mom, cuttlefish –
have you ever seen a sawfish?

Can you think of any other fish,
my sweetheart, babyfish?

#11 Christmas Poem

The winter is near
with hot chocolate
and Christmas cheer –

It’s the most holy
time of year with joy
and singing in prayer –
a child with their favorite toy.

A time for family
or friends, but giving
is always lovely –
Charity on God’s wing.

Round in peace,
round in happiness,
let kindness not cease –
when all is well and goodness.

# 12 Silly, Silly Mr. Moon

It’s the kind of night
when all is well and all is right.

It’s bedtime now
and time to take it slow.

So tell me a goodnight
story that shows love
forever more and tonight.

Tell me about the stars
that can’t really be that far.

Explain the Planets like Mars
and even honking cars.

Make me a bed with goose down feathers
that keep me warm in that cold, cold weather.

Make sure my socks are warm,
in this snowflake globe’s winter storm.

Sing me today’s last day song
before I nod off all night long!

#13 The Queen Rainbow Fairy

In our joyous new beginnings
it is like a rainbow
reaching out on a wing
with red aglow.

Misting into orange sky
then sparkle to yellow.
Could green begin to fly?
While our blue starts to grow

and finally purple,
with this marvelous intent
to change and begin again.
In love our heaven’s sent.

#14 The Dove Fairy Villanelle

The Fairy for the Doves
has a bird call
that has the utmost love.

It seems to climb so tall
even though a song
and it captivates all.

Even Sparrows sing along,
truly all feel at home
for each of us, we belong.

#15 Divine Light Sonnet

The gift of divine light
is forevermore than bright,
but it is for the holy life and spirit.
Its power is in goodness
with a shield and a bow.
It is God’s fortress
of protection aglow.
To harness this love goes – 

for it is without fear,
but watching birth grow.
It is of Heaven 
with peace on its wings
bringing beginnings again
and joy on a string.

Psalm 145

#16 Spirit Infinite

You can’t break
the grace of stars
making their destiny
in divine and unconditional
of this here love

#17 My Prayers’ for You

May the archangels
surround you when in need
and plant the protection seed

May the sun and moon light
show God’s love and hold you tight

May the ocean and mountains
add praise for your day
and the best God’s given gain

May the trees and flowers
add beauty to your journey,
giving God’s given powers

May the cakes from 
your Mother’s oven
remind you of her
deepest loven 
for who you are today
and who you will be tomorrow

May your mother’s word
add to you how you are miracle

May any child’s shaming
or teasing of you
make you grateful 
that you aren’t them,
gone sour and judging

May any children’s 
rejection of you
make you all the more
confident in how strong
you are and forever long

May your bravery
be noticed by your
spirit’s door

May the glue you use
for your art
remind you of how
sticky things can get

May the jump rope
or hopscotch
remind you at times
you may need to hop
or jump on one foot
on the way to the top

May you learn your biggest
God known fear
is a gift and farthest the best

May you find joy
in at least one heartfelt way

May you learn the language
of greatest importance
is the heart and spirit way

May the seasons 
give you the power
to make change
for all good reasons
