Australian Pelican

 

 

Pelican at the waters edge
Figures, shinning of the edge
Sleek and glowing in the silver wind
Blown across the land
That no-one can understand

In the clear shadows of dusk
Thin pools of water flicker

Under the stars, glistening by night
Only a flicker, I see the Pelican
Swiftly others flicker and land

Outward, beyond the eye of the Pelican
Seeking solitude
Where the winds brood
Across the waters

At one with with the wind and water
Quiet and understanding
Still when the spill of a wave
Scurries the Pelican and brood

Dusk, by the sea, linger a while
Tide, silver winds, ions, relax
Air, breeze, for the wings of a Pelican
Rise above an ocean, distance only motion
On the wings of God’s creation.

Shy yet glamours Australian bird the Kingfisher

 

 

I sit beside the lake listening in the sun
Quietly watching, Kingfishers on branches
A little noise and a flap of the wings
Lift off and further chatter, they dive into the lake
What danger for the fish huddling in spools beneath the water
Bush garden nearby, they feel the wind, They’re flying to rest
They were born to fly and fish, that is their life
Wind and water is their home, near the bush
They fly over the lake, nestling where I watch
Others stand nearby watching in awe
Of the majestic Australian bird

Kingfishers follow the water, Birds of
Australia created by God, Follow their
food chain. Glisten across they sky
With a magical chatter
They fly, they fly

They feed by the water
Dropping deep into the water
Flashing through the sky
Amazing creations by God

I wonder how they know,

Where feed is?

Sharing encourages others

A heart of love flows readily
A soul flowing with generosity
An image of quiet simplicity
A heart of love ready to give
Sharing, yet unseen are the prayers
Prayers of faith, trust, time an effort

The care, edifying others
Sharing encourages others
Sharing began with the beginning of time
With our Creator
The Son gave his life for us
Sharing His life with us
The open hands of life

Heaven gathers it’s blessings
From some distant heaven
Showers you with affection

Don’t let pride get in the way
Don’t let greed get in the way
Pride and greed hinders love

Deep in our heart, is the heart of sharing
A heart that remains gentle
Laying open our heart, with means
That we can touch the lives of others
With a gentle heart, we can open our live
To the dedication enabling us to give help
Open our heart, Open our hands
There will be love in the world.

Song of Solomon 5:5 I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands …
… I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with …
I jumped up to open the door for my love, and my hands dripped with perfume. …

At first I prayed

When at first I started praying, I was so insecure, I had no  idea what I was doing. Now I am writing prayers, not hesitating in my prayers. Sometimes I am tongue twisted when I pray out loud, I do better this way, somehow God has heard my prayers.

At first I prayed
The first time I prayed
Embarrassed, yet I prayed for light
Now, a light shone before me
I could see the way through
Swiftly I walked, through the light
I prayed for strength, that I might
Walk the road, with unfaltering power
Meeting the heavens, winning
Then I prayed earnestly for faith
So I could trust again, I now Trust God with my life
I live now for God’s everlasting peace
Confident in God’s truth’s, confident in God’s Love
A foes are now at bay, I pray earnestly for Love
Deep Love of God, a living love that would not fail
No more darkness, living in the light of strength and faith
Openings everywhere, God has waited, patiently
For me to continually pray
Continually pray the everlasting prayer
In Jesus name Amen

Healing time

Australia we healed together

———————-

Where the mountains are blue, glistening with gems,
Home is where the mountains talk to me, feel the heart of the mountains
Let the rivers run down below the tall gums, so striking and tall
There is wisdom in the land, there is soul in this land
Older than time itself, so much to know and learn
Try to understand this land, find the healing time
Across the wide brown land, covered in wattle

You’ve heard my voice, You’ve felt my tears
For so many years, when I cried,you cried,
You’ve laughed, you’ve sung, cheers to my joy
The pain of my tears, were swept away, as I,
Learned to walk with you, you healed as I healed

Your tune, marched me through the darker days
I walked a line, towards the mountains, towards the sky
Finding my way, where the mountains talk and the river runs free
Wisdom and soul, flows through my heart in this land
Yet I am not afraid, I am not alone
You brought me back to the mountains, where the blue reaches the sky

Where the mountains are blue, glistening with gems,
Home is where the mountains talk to me, feel the heart of the mountains
Let the rivers run down below the tall gums, so striking and tall
There is wisdom in the land, there is soul in this land
The sun rises above this land, that no-one can understand
A sun golden and pure, rebirths each days
In this healing time of nature and me

You’ve heard my voice, You’ve felt my tears
For so many years, when I cried, you cried,
You’ve laughed, you’ve sung, cheers to my joy
The pain of my tears, were swept away, as I,
Learned to walk with you, you healed as I healed

I’m the eagle of the mountains

Dedicated to the Snowy mountains in Australia

 

I live in the mountains
High country, called the Snowy mountains
I live in the trees, watching the seasons
Flow by each year, I watch the horses of the mountains
I’m free to come and go from tree to tree
I’m the eagle of the mountains
The High country is my home
Mountains the reach the sky
I watch the moon of night
Kiss the peaks of the mountains
I watch the horses of the mountains
Sleep at night, roaming of day
Yet I am the eagle that guards the mountain
Season flow through the year
Travelers come and go
All those who come to see the mountains
The horses, share in the freedom of the mountains
I fly from tree to tree, watching, many see me
Believing I am there the guardian of the mountains
I glide on the wind from tree to tree
Across the mountain tops
Sailing free, catching the stars, glimpses of the moon
Sailing free across the heavens, guarding the mountains
We can reach for the stars, and grab for the stardust
That glistens in the night

As I begin my day God

As I begin my day God
My thought are with YOU
My thoughts of how YOU have changed my life
My thoughts on how YOU have affected many
Working in their lives, each day

Without them knowing, YOU are there

As I wake, I hear YOU listening about me
Listening to my dreams, my hopes
My joy in the relaxation I am creating with YOU
My SPIRIT was down for a while
You revived my SPIRIT
Lord, please be with us all
We cry out to YOU in JOY, and sometimes sadness
Please be with us all today

As I relax my mind with YOU today
Keeping YOU in my thoughts
Praying for my friends that need YOU
To feel YOUR presence beside me
Supporting those that need YOU

My prayer reaches far to the corners of the Earth
Dear, Lord, lift my SPIRITS, light the lights of many
Please make the lights of YOUR kingdom shine
For all those to see, YOU are with them in their time of need
Share YOUR praises with all

As I wake today, into YOUR world, I see a world
Unlike any other day, but YOU GOD make it special
Your GRACE has fallen deep inside my soul
Growing everyday, it’s taken me a while to understand
What YOUR GRACE meant
We hardly know or understand it fully

YOU have promised to be with me as I have promised to be with YOU
YOU are guiding me on my JOURNEY, You are my companion
YOU have shown me how to live, how to trust again
YOUR influences in my life has changed me
YOUR influences in my life has given me a purpose

My mission today is to grow
Share YOUR word with many
The bond of connection with GOD
Created me in a new world
Trust GOD wherever we are
That Trust can never fade
GOD is there for us all

Just knock on the door of God
And HE with find you

In Jesus name today and always Amen

Psalm 95:7
for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice,

Hebrews 3:7
So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice,

Hebrews 3:15
As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

All Roads that lead to heaven

All

Roads that lead to heaven
Life is ancient among these roads
Older than the trees
The wind blows, gently, such a soft breeze
To touch your face
Roads younger than the mountains

Mountains timeless desert
My heart belongs to the mountains
Where the trees are green
Mountains glisten with gems
Roads that lead to heaven
All my memories are there
Gathered around the trees
Stranger than the blue sky
Softly touching the clouds
Dark and dusty roads
Tears fall with the shine of the moon

Mountains stand still timeless
My heart belongs to God
The place where the winds blow softly
Where the trees are green
Where all roads lead to heaven
Mountains gather around
Stranger than the sky
Where the blue sky touches the clouds
Echoes of the mountains sky
Where the breeze touches your heart

Voices call in the morning air
Wake to the morning
Follow the roads to heaven
Find your way home

Take me to the home I love
Among the mountain peaks
That glisten like gems in the morning sky
Mountains timeless desert
My heart belongs to the mountains
Where the trees are green
Roads that lead to heaven
Life is ancient among these roads
Older than the trees
The wind blows, gently, such a soft breeze
To touch your face
Roads younger than the mountains

Matthew 3:16 Jesus, when he was baptized, went up directly from the water: and behold, the heavens were opened to him. He saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming on him.
Matthew 3:17 Behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

Call with outstretched hands, Australia

Koala eating a eucalyptus leaf

34 39 55 56 65 66 78 090 98 112 121

Forests so dense with softly flowing plumes
Across the coastline, to the desert sands, red, scorching, sands
The call of the outback is sighing
Call with outstretched hands

From the oceans, this land reaches your heart

It is in the heart of each sole pioneer
The mountains so high, trees, bent
With the weight of snow, music of Australian birds
Mountain high plains riders, chase cattle, horses
Live in the mountains, floating on the breeze of the high plains
.
The sky reaches so blue and powdery, from the mountains to the plains
Sounds echo across the ground, alerting the heard
Graceful birds, float on the drift of the breeze
Floating south

The sky darkens as the rider, searches for bedding
Moonlit shine, so soft and silvery
Silence echoes, a hush, for a sleepy rider
Swag laid out, in the moonlit shine
Sleep beneath the moon, for a sleepy rider

In the heart of nature, the wilderness
Of Australia will grab you
It tugs at your heart, melts your soul
Ties your heart up with loving cords

Australia will grabs you, in a heart beat
Each living animal, each breathing thing
There is magic on the land of Australia
Each breathing tree, each breathing grass
Listen and you will hear a tune

There is a silence about this land
Listen for the silence and you will find knowledge
Wrapping its slender fingers around your heart
Longing for you to return
Though this land is wide

The call of this land, is long
Though it is often pushed away
There is colour, there is heartbreak
Music of Australia is there everyday
Sound and perfume, yet this land
Is calling to all, Oceans will call
A special call, meeting the breeze
As it comes from the land

When the breeze blows across the land
The rustic country has a special sound and perfume
Wraps your heart in slender gentle foil
The city a hub for all, rattles all day and night

Yet wherever Australia, winds its magic
With a longing for all
The call of a birth place
Alone in the bush where life is free
And little care may despair

Birds of Australia

Find a bird

There is a coolness across the valley where I live

Echoes are calling through my window
I heat traffic leaving for work, yet I hear tunes
Of silver wattle birds echoing, budgies, parrots,I hear water falling in the distance
It lives in the mountains with me, moss covered rocks
Laden with water,The beauty of the morning sound of God’s
Creation,through trees mighty giants, sliver ghost gums
Laden with flowers, sheaves of light, plume through leaves
Notes of birds echoing sounds of magic, waking for the morning

Silver voiced birds native to our land, echo voices of the day
Tunes of Australia magic night and day, listen in the dawn of morning
Listen in the dusk of evening, thunder and lightening strike
The gums holding their nest, thunderbolts hurtle leaves and branches down
They hide in fear, nestled in the leaves of Australia
When rain, and sunshine mingle with leaves, sparkles of a new day
Sounds of Australia wake like warbled sounds
Hues of feathers open and shake as birds of a country
Wake to a new day, green, red, yellow golden tones, pink, and white.

God’s creation birds of Australia
