Beauty Is All Around Us

 

Amidst all the ugly pain and destruction, there’s also beauty in this world. I like to get out there and capture that from time to time. I hope you like the pictures! See something beautiful, something that makes you smile today? Share it with me!? Let’s share some good with one another!

I’m An American

Image

The land of the brave & home of the free

That is what you are to many, including me

Across vast & might oceans and distant seas

Some see us as a land of greed & shallow vanity

 

It is true that our nation has its troubles, that’s easy to see

And there are plenty I know who are ready & willing to flee

Fed up with our government & changing all we’re meant to be

A lot that happens here is troubling, on that I can agree

 

But there is still good to be found in our wondrous country

Within many of its citizens who still believe in love & chivalry

And look upon it’s breathtakingly beautiful scenery

From its vast & mighty mountains to its luscious  greenery

 

This is my home land, now & forever more, don’t you see?

Ashamed of certain people, perhaps, but this is still my country

Born & raised here, this is where my friends are & my family

An American now & it is what I shall forever be

My Tribute to Wisconsin

Image

From the land of the frozen tundra, I say hello

Where cheese is made & beer does freely flow

Born & raised in this place they call Wisconsin

This is where many of my friends are & also my kin

 

There are times when I dream of moving away

Because of the many cold & snowy days

But in the end, I find it difficult to leave this place

It’s like Cheers here, so many know my name & face

 

Those I hold most dear to my heart live here

So away from my home land, I am not ready to steer

And hey there are some beautiful sights here to see

Like spring time in Wisconsin, nature in its most wondrous glory

 

Come with me to Little Green and swim for awhile

Or let us go the Menomonee River Parkway & walk a few miles

See the ducks as they fly over Devil’s Lake

Or gaze upon the glorious sunrises in Cottage Grove as you wake

 

From Milwaukee all the way up to Green Bay & beyond

This is my home & of it I am quite fond

And even if I should ever from this place depart

Wisconsin will always be where I got my start

 

And know what no matter where I might be

I will always be loyal to my sports teams

Green & gold run deep within my veins each & every day

As does my love for the Brew Crew, no matter how bad we play

 

There’s just something about this place I call home

I have had plenty of chances to leave & yet from here I won’t roam

Perhaps someday I will find the strength to leave

But as you can see now, my love for my home is on my sleeve

 

Wisconsin, how I really do love you

Anyone who knows me knows this to be true

And as it has from the very start

So shall it always be that it has my heart

The World of Technology

Image

Oh what a wondrous thing it is, this thing we call technology

From advancements in science to keeping us in touch with those overseas

It has helped us as a race do so many great things, surely that’s easy to see

Though I also believe that many have become too dependent on it, even me

 

As it is, I am online right now instead of reading something noteworthy

Or being outside, looking at all of nature’s beauty

Spending time with my dear sweet friend photography

Capturing the sheer magnificence of His creations such as a rose or a maple tree

 

Though I have taken breaks from forming these words in my head to play with our puppy

She is an adorable creature, let me introduce you to her, her name is Lucy

I watched her play in the snow & I have watched as it’s fallen upon me

Unable to truly forget the splendor of all He’s made, that is key

 

Spending time online, listening to an iPod, or even just playing a game on the Wii

It has it’s place, especially when one thinks of all technology does to keep us alive & healthy

But it is good for us all to remember that there is a world outside of that, to not a slave to it be

And to cherish all that is surrounds us, most especially our friends & family

Ode To the Four Seasons

Sometimes I complain about the weather

For a little while, it’s too hot

Though in reality, it’s not the heat

It’s the humidity that has me beat

 

For what seems like forever at the time

It’s a winter wonderland

But outside is not where I want to go

Because that usually means I have to shovel snow

 

But despite all my whining

And my body’s protesting

I actually feel quite grateful to live here

I get to see four seasons every year

 

God cloaks the world in many colors

Leaves of forest and emerald green grace our trees for awhile

Then they change their gowns

Turning into beautiful shades of purple, red, orange, yellow, brown

 

Squirrels, marmots, and the like scamper to and fro during the warmer months

And then take a nice long nap while the frost and snow takes its toll

Growing, evolving, & changing is a part of nature and all life

Throughout, we’ll know joy, pain, anger, hunger, excitement, and strife

 

What a wonder this world is to watch and enjoy

I’m in awe with every change God makes in it and in us

Winter, Spring, Summer, & Fall

I am glad to be here to enjoy them all
