Changing Seasons


Waiting around the house

Watching through a dirty window

Seeing the trees barren swaying in the breeze

Mud and brown grass covers the ground

Birds flying grabbing twigs to make their nests

Snow melted away, temperatures slowly begin to rise

Sun filters through the clouds

Feeling in my mind that spring and summer will soon be here

Sun rays warming my face as I look outside

Thinking in my mind of all that will come with the new season

What am I contemplating…

All the things I need to fix, clean and do and excited about it all

Climbing on the roof to clear out the gutters and remove the sticks

Raking up the leftover fall leaves

Cleaning up the bushes and getting the mower ready for the grass

Am I crazy to look forward to all this stuff

Probably, but hey I am that way

Of course I can do without the mosquitos and all the other bugs

So here is to spring and here is to summer

May they be full of fun and times of adventure

Empathetic Heart


Thoughts of past days run through your mind

Some full of fun and others not so kind

Thinking back on those times bring despair

Makes you wonder why do I care

What makes you this way you ponder so deep

Causing your heart to tear and weep

The person you are is so full of so much love

You find ways to show compassion like our God above

When people are hurting, you feel that too

An empathetic heart reaching out to those sad and blue

So, caring for those who despair

You are a person so full of tenderness, kindness and grace

The reason you feel is because of how much you care

I am so amazed at the beauty inside

A heart and soul so amplified

By the tenderheartedness found in you

*Dedicated to my wife who has the biggest heart full of love that I know. She cares so deeply for people and I am always amazed by you.*


Hey, Look! A Writer Fellow!

Will YOU be the lucky winner?

Last week on this blog I asked you a question: “Should I start a writing contest?”

I followed up my question with a promise: “If there is enough enthusiasm for a writing contest, I will start a writing contest.”

So. Was there enough enthusiasm for a writing contest?

Sort of!

And that’s good enough for me.

Welcome to the First Annual
Sully Award for Excellence in Writerishness!

The (one and only) winner will receive a bunch of valuable prizes!

My Armor


Rocky times I have seen in my life

Trials and tribulations I have faced

Times when I am about to fail

The enemy puts doubts into my mind

Pushing me deeper into despair

How do I fight such a force?

What do I use to defend myself

Grabbing my shield

Wearing my breastplate

Buckling up my belt

Putting on my boots

Placing on my helmet

Taking a hold of my sword

I am prepared for battle

These are my armaments given to me by God

Strong in the Lord and Mighty in his Power

Taking my stand against the Devil I will fight

I pray to my Lord and Savior

Give me strength and courage to wage this war

Victorious I will be in His Love.


Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.



For me there can be no other

You are the only one I desire

You are the only one I need

You excite me like no other

Shivers run down my spine at your touch

Passion is what I feel in your kiss

Heat is what I see in your eyes

I look forward to each moment I am near you

The feel of your body as I caress your silky smooth skin

Pulling you tighter to me as we mesh into one

Thoughts of you lift my cravings for you higher

Diving deeper into you is what I long for

With you I feel the ecstasy of love

You are the one, the only one for me.



Time Apart


Time apart from you

Left for work saying adieu

Mind wanders around

Can make me feel down

The beep of my phone

Means a message from back home

Where you wait for me

The place I would rather be

Biding my time until I see you again

The waiting can drive me insane

Walking through the door

Arriving to your kisses and so much more

Until that time comes

I will sit here all glum

Until that time all my love I send to you.


Across the Room


Looking at you from across the room

The beauty of my flower in bloom

Time has passed since we first met

A look from you leaves me in a cold sweat

Unable to divert my eyes

A ravenous hunger arises

Moving to you I pull you close

Into my arms I propose

A time of wantonness desire

Rising in us a fire

Passion unabated we explore

Until we are spent with no more

Curled together we hold each other tight

Off we fall into a blissful night
