Life and Give


Martha and I are working on the Prompt #Challenge #72 Life&Give for Ronovan’s haiku page.

Cleft of the Rock

My soul seeks refuge
Anger, hate, and war abound
Hide me in the cleft







Life Cycle

Hibernating Bears
Internal clocks give alarm
Awake, spring is here




2 x Martha

life wanes
Her life so precious
wanes as loved ones stand helpless
offering prayers
seedlings begin life
flourishing in warmth of sun
till winter brings death

      • I’ll have to look it up, as it doesn’t immediately come to mind…all day I’ve had pieces of “Nearer My God to Thee” and “Leaning On the Everlasting Arms” playing through my brain.


      • Rock of Ages, cleft for me

        Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
        Let me hide myself in Thee;
        Let the water and the blood,
        From Thy riven side which flowed,
        Be of sin the double cure,
        Save me from its guilt and power.
        Not the labor of my hands
        Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
        Could my zeal no respite know,
        Could my tears forever flow,
        All could never sin erase,
        Thou must save, and save by grace.
        Nothing in my hands I bring,
        Simply to Thy cross I cling;
        Naked, come to Thee for dress,
        Helpless, look to Thee for grace:
        Foul, I to the fountain fly,
        Wash me, Savior, or I die.
        While I draw this fleeting breath,
        When mine eyes shall close in death,
        When I soar to worlds unknown,
        See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
        Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
        Let me hide myself in Thee.
