Resolution PAD 27-2




I’m here in Arizona recovering from vacation and COVID.

Like a camera with poor resolution,

my life has become unfocused.

I resolve to bring more clarity to my habits of prayer,

exercises, nutrition, regular sleep and writing,

before I return home to Colorado.

Color Poetic Bloomings, Resolution PAD 27-1

 Good Advice


I don’t pretend to understand resolution,

pixels, monochrome cameras or Bayer filters.

I just know when I told others of my Kenya plans,

many advised me to take a good camera.

I thought my little Canon would be good enough.

But what looked like gold puddles to my camera

looked like majestic lions to my sister’s.

On mine you can see a monkey silhouette.

On a friend’s, a mama monkey cuddled her baby.

Yes, those are elephants on my camera.

But on other cameras, you can count the wrinkles.

Yay for PhotoCircle where our tour group shares pics.

But this year, I’m making a resolution resolution.

Before my next trip, I’m getting a better camera.

Second Thought PAD 26-3

 Second Thought Vacation


Second thought (going to Africa)

overpowered first thought (going to Italy),

with some regret and trepidation

(But I wanted to go to Italy.

Is going to Africa safe?)

But second thought turned out fine.

Kenya was great!

Second Thought PAD 26-2

 On Second Thought


Going forward with thrust!

Doing this? A must.

There’s no stopping now.

Full speed and how!

No turning back.

Stay right on track.

Not left nor right.

Goal lies in sight.

But on second thought,

maybe not.

Second Thought PAD 26-1


Over Thinking


If I only had second thoughts.

it would simply be amusing,

It’s about the twentieth thought

when it becomes confusing.

Serious PAD 25-2



If God

Creator of the Universe

tells us to pray,

shouldn’t we take it seriously?
