The Woman of the Hollow

witch

Across from the field and by the meadow

there is a house that sits next to the hollow

it belongs to a woman that is very mysterious

it is because of her the countryside is filled with conspiracies

she was once known for her charm and her beauties

her skin and her face were fairer than many

the look in her eyes were very mischievous

as for her smile, it almost looked devious

her hair was thick, dark, and slender

 and her appearance, was to be remembered

Scarecrow Meets a Friend

Scarecrow meets a friend

Meadow2
Only in the meadow will you see
Mr scarecrow standing there up rightly
from the farmer he’s given the task
to guard the harvest and the pumpkin patch
even the birds will not land
 the place where scarecrow continues to stand

Everyday, Mr. Scarecrow could not understand
why he was put there to haunt the meadow-land
if only for a moment, he could be different
something with purpose and possibly significant
for some odd reason scarecrow is confused
For he was not the horrible figure that everyone viewed

Look in the field and see in the meadow
that scarecrow is not frightening; he is actually a fine fellow
Mr Scarecrow didn’t like what he was determined to be
because he viewed himself as being peculiar and very ugly
all of the animals and all of the creatures
were terrified of him because of his features
all he ever wanted was a friend
someone to talk to, someone who could understand

Look in the field see in the meadow

curiosity sparked because of the peculiar looking fellow

her interest was peaked as she viewed from a distance
at Mr scarecrow and his strange looking appearance
she couldn’t stand there and watch any-longer
she had to know the one that everyone thought was a monster

therefore she ventured to the middle of the meadow
to introduce herself to the creepy looking fellow
“Hi my name is Selene”, she said
and I come from the house that is right up ahead
she continued, “what is your name and why do you stand here?”
he replied, “my name is Mr.Scarecrow and my job is to impart fear.”
at that point, the two conversed
therefore a friendship began to commerce

Black cat

Look in the field see in the meadow
a friendship is formed between the cat and the fellow
Selene was small and covered in black
for she was a very suspicious looking cat

Mr. Scarecrow

Rain on the scarecrow
Look in the field and see the meadow

there stands in the middle a peculiar looking fellow

There at his post stands as the watchman

is Mr.scare crow who is made of wool and stuffed with cotton

His face is made from that of a pumpkin

whose eyes are made of two black buttons

with clothing that seems tethered and ragged

is Mr. Scare crow kept warm by his old, red jacket.

.

He stands prostrate in the wind and the rain

to guard the field that is planted with grain

his frame is made from the wood

that comes from the land of which he stood

all day long, he stands there still

to frighten the critters who trespass his field

.

Look in the field out into the meadow

and see that peculiar looking fellow

from the weather and beginning of fall

Mr. scarecrow is there to witness it all

including the trees and the leaves changing colors

He is there to witness all of autumn’s great wonders

every year brings a new season

which reminds Mr. scare crow he was put there for a reason.

The Great State of Mississippi

OutlineMS

During the harsh winter of 1817

Was the beginning of the great state of Mississippi.

A state that overtime has been misunderstood greatly.

Today, stands for freedom and social equality.

Birthplace of Elvis Presley -  Tupelo Mississippi.

When reflecting on a place like Mississippi

We are reminded of all the good times and simplicities

The sounds of the blues and BB King

to Elvis Presley strumming on his guitar strings.

From the stories of William Faulkner and Eudora Welty

Are reasons this state is well read and proficient in literacy

.

When looking back on the state’s long, history

we remember 1865, when the Union won the victory.

That day, the civil war ended as did the confederacy

which produced the 13th amendment that abolished slavery

Remembered for their civil endeavors

Are John Perkins, Emmit Till, and Medgar Evers

Who ushered in the movements of the civil rights era

When thinking about the great state of Mississippi

From the fables of witches and ghost stories

That supposedly haunt the historic Yazoo city

From rolling hills that belong to Vicksburg’s National Park

Are remembered all the battles and the civil war landmarks

On a tour, through the Natchez trace’s scenery

You will be amazed by the native land’s beauty.

homes of Natchez, MS

From the town squares, antebellum, and antiquity

Are some of the unique things that belong to Mississippi

Famous for the Hail state and Hotty toddy

This land is full of competition and in-state rivalries

Founded in the state of the Magnolia

Was developed the crisps taste of thirst quenching, Coca Cola

Due to President Roosevelt’s hunting sprees

The teddy bear was first stuffed right here in Mississippi

Give Praise All of Creation

Galaxies

Give Praise All of Creation

As one reflects with meditation and ponder
It brings to memory all of Gods great wonders

All of mass and all of matter
God created, with His unique pattern
All things, beyond thought or imagine
God created, including the molecule and the atom

From His throne was determined
All of creation and its inter working
Simply designed by The Great Majesty
Is all of the cell and it’s intricate complexities

From the One who knows all things
Brought into existence, our substance and being.

The heart, the lungs, and even the man

Are just the beginnings of God’s will & great plans.

It all happened at one single instance
That all creation spoken into existence

From the One of which life is sustained
created the seasons, the snow, and the rain
From the sun and its rays of light
Earth’s many needs are met and supplied

To the moon and the stars that shine so bright
Are the heavens declared in the night
Placed into orbit, all of the planets
Are the universes, galaxies, and their aerodynamics


The waves, the seas and all of the ocean
By Gods word were put into motion
The hills, the planes, and all of the land
Were formed in the beginning by a single command
The rain, the snow, and every season
Are timed by God for a wonderful reason

From simple flight taken by the dove

Reminds us that Christ reigns from above.

Even the beast, the bear, and the lion

Were fashioned by Him Who rules the Holy Hill of Zion

The tongues, the people, and every nation
Were created to bring Him all Glory and praising.

In the beginning, at the spoken creation

Remind me again, where was the atheist?

What is Wrong with America?

What is Wrong with America?
eagle-219679_640

What is wrong with the country, America?

Filled with people consumed by entertainment and pop media.

The democrats, liberals, and leftist

Are what is going to turn this country into a regime, a fascist.

Of course all people have right to opinion.

but please spare US all of the continued ignorance.

What is wrong with the Democracy?

The white house is filled with a concept, idiocracy!

800px-Barack_Obama_at_White_House_gun_violence_meeting

The ignorant voters are first to blame

Which won the 08 election to contribute the great change

What is wrong with America?

The citizens and leaders are plagued with disease called mania

While Syria and ISIS develop great hostility

America backs down and acts like a sissy.

Our leaders conceal nuclear deals with Iran

makes US wonder if our leaders hate America and support the Quran

What is wrong with our government?

Since when did everything become so offensive and treated with tolerance?

The people continue to ignore Biblical commandments

That even the gays have the right to a marital sanction

What is wrong with this country, America?

It is a country who is influenced by the devil

The streets are filled with cowards, cheats, and corruption

That the safety of children and lives are in grave danger of destruction.

The citizens support the right to euthanize

Distorting the very concepts pertaining to life.

PP

Citizens condone the killings of innocent babies

selling their body parts just seems crazy.

Have we become so shallow and filled with greed

That fetal organs are sold for rides in Lamborghinis

What about the freedoms of speech?

There are places in America the Bible is forbidden to be preached.

Christian Standards are being overruled.

That even sanctity of Prayer is illegal in schools

Makes one wonder, why all the school violence

Perhaps the administration, wanting to keep all Christians silent?

What happened to Biblical upbringings?

Liberal Americans cant endure sound doctrine or teaching

What has become the new standard?

Political correctness and the black lives matter?

the slanders, the riots, and all of the killings

Shouldn’t we be a people of less hate and more forgiving.

Terrorist

Evildoers, terrorist, and wars

Where is our president in which we forsworn?

What has happened to the great red, white, and blue?

The land of which our forefathers fought to pursue

With blood, sweat and tears; freedom became ours.

bill of rights, constitution, and freedom of speech was the hopeful desire

Allowing illegal immigrants to reside

Have placed fiscal burdens countrywide

Hardworking Americans strive to provide bread and pay taxes

So that the lazy continue to be funded and remain inactive

A man is forbidden to enjoy his own land

Due to a Clause, know as the imminent domain

Are we country who really loves debt?

Borrowing trillions the future will surely regret

What is wrong with our country that you see?

Lack of support for police and the military

The very ones who protected and served

Are neglected the recognition that they truly deserve

The right to bear arms is even in question

There goes our fight against enemies and terrorist aggressions

Why have the bill of rights and constitution been neglected?

To be distorted and misused by a term called “political correction”

What has happened to American industry?

Well, they have been outsourced to companies oversees.

Why we love fall! Today is the First Day Spent in The Fall

Why we love fall! Today is the First Day Spent in The Fall

Autumn

Today is the first day spent in the fall

The crisp air against the cheek, the nose, and all senses involved.

The feelings and emotions that come from within

Comes when the cool air presses and starts to begin.

Today is the first day spent in the cold

As today reminds us memories from long ago.

Today is the first day spent in autumn

As this season whisked into place without a problem.

The trees the leaves, and everything change

As all of the colors begin to rearrange.

At last, the ground is covered with frost.

Along with the clouds and the heavy dense fog.

The scents and smells of pumpkin spice.

Remind us all of everything nice.

The carvings of pumpkin and visiting patches

Are all the wonders that autumn brings to practice.

The doors are all decorated with colorful wreaths

Which makes this season a time of relief.

Everyone gathers around the fire

To make marshmallow smores to their desire.

October 04, 2015

Halloween, Thanksgiving, and festivals involved,

Are all the reasons of why we love fall.

The taste of apples, caramels, and sweets

are reminders that this season is truly a treat.

The autumn sun hastily begins to set

to bring about a night sky one cannot forget.

Yes, the wonders of fall are truly amazing.

As this season, brings about a certain thanksgiving.

Today is the first day spent in the fall

Today is a glorious day to give Christ our all
