Perseverance

There’s a stark, bare tree that stands near my home
Except for one leaf that remains all alone
It once was a lush green, that turned a vibrant gold
But now it’s all brown… crinkled and old
It’s very determined! As it stays through the wind and rain
Hanging and twisting…everyday it still remains
I wonder what makes it want to hold on so tight?
To survive the daily assaults through the day and the night
To have that perseverance; to stand against it all
To always hang on tight and never take a fall

Rainbow

Stretched out high
Across a clear blue sky
Some simple colors form a band
They just hang there, never touch the land
They don’t just capture the eye
Your heart sees it and will sigh
They’re said to be a promise, from a time long ago
They trigger a memory deep in the soul
They never seem to last very long
Their image will replay in your mine like a favorite song

Red

Red the color of blood that gives us life
Red the color of fire, that lights the night
Red the color of passion, so intense
Red the color of love, true deep, immense

Richard Lee Smith

I too walked this earth
Felt it's sadness and it's mirth
A farmer at heart; I worked this land
A two pocket work shirt and a farmers tan
A John Deere hat upon my head
A man of few words; I left a lot unsaid
Farming auctions, I could spend all day
Cutting, drying and baling hay
Fresh sweet corn from the Jorgensen's crop
An icy cold ginger ale pop
A treat for Brandy, always in my truck
I loved playing Lotto, I was full of luck
Breakfast at Ellie's and supper too
All of this I watched through eyes of blue
