RABAG Seasons – By Genora W. Powell | Plateau Area Writers Association

Bless this pen and that which flows

may the words that are brought forth on this paper council me

and guide me throughout my seasons of life on Earth.

Bless me with your wise words now, heavenly beings.

“Release, release and have peace.

Acknowledge the winter, the solitude even the cold.

It is in there. Soon after, the warm sun always melts.

Allow Jesus to bring forth these spring flowers.

Tend to them by calling on him, always, always.

Summer, when the gentle warm winds tickle you, be aware, be aware.

Enjoy the pleasures of your skin, of other’s eyes.

Share in the beauty of all that surrounds you.

When fall comes and the harvest is plenty, give, give.

The basket is full, let it overflow.

Continue your harvesting even when

the days grow dim into winter’s bleakness.

The dark cold days are time to nourish and replenish

and contemplate the way of the wise

and share your thoughts with Jesus.

Again release, always be aware and give.”

Thank you for blessing this pen.

Thank you for blessing that which is within.

Thank you for your message.

I release, always being aware and giving.
