Firefly code, a frog song! Poetry by KarLynn


We have been enjoying the most beautiful and glorious evenings of late.  We do not have a very long summer, so anytime it is extra enjoyable we try to soak it all up!  The fireflies are extremely active right now.  I wrote a little poem about them.  And if you know me you know my affinity for frogs, so I added a couple of lines about them too!


Flash of green

Flash of yellow

Here no There!

Are the flashes in sync?

Do they relay a message?

mesmerized by motion

dark becomes magic

Enter a frog orchestra

Chirp, Croak, Chirp, Croak

Dark encompasses

with nothing visible by eye

Sound becomes my soul sense

except for the flash

Here no There!




A mild rain fell

upon the nose

of a daisy.


The daisy prospered

exuding vivid color

for all to enjoy.


The sun warmed

her to her core

sending energy in rays of light.


The light shone

for all who yearned

to be in the kingdom

and with our Lord!


Home and Family

There has never been more love!

cozy, bursting seams

Spring blooms fresh flowers

Some nests are full of blessings

New life soon be seen!

Eternal peace lives

washed away everyday

forgiveness reigns free!

A Haiku


I saw a Haiku someone had posted and it reminded me, I know how to do that and I have not for quite some time.  Boy it feels good to write poetry!

Love fulfilled in He

Time stands still yet disappears

Forgiveness abounds

Soon our stay here ends

A life of world lost to sin

He can set you free

Strength of faith is bold

When all else seems faded gray

There is only one way

Find Him hold Him tight

Evil can find no entrance

When Christ is in sight!

Praise  Worship  Follow  Fellowship  Resistance  Submission

Your love releases

The bonds of sin

If only the bonds

Of submission would end

Come follow me

Your word instructs

The resistance

In my flesh constricts

Fellowship leadership ownership

All lead to glorious worship!

You are my God, my Father

My creator, my everthing

Dear Heavenly Father

To you I sing!

Majestic creature

Heaven created

Purched high above

Nothing but air

Quiet strength

Holds him high

Seemingly undetected

By a blind eye

Only eyes open

To God’s beauty

Would his presence be known


For even now it is only they
who fill an empty heart.
Glad creeps to a surface once dark.
Chosen by Him of all that is Holy
they bring peace to a heart unruly.
Our King of all kings has appointed
they who carry His message
near and far.
Listen within, are you a they?

A Poem

A good exchange
of love and laughter
Saves a room
from sadness and disaster
A family gathers
resentments loom
Save us oh Lord
from satan’s doom
His presence made known
by the story we’re told
The tradition demands
all attention to hold
The guards let down
there’s no more frown
It’s Christmas you know
and it’s beginning to snow


The sound of the whip-poor-will takes me right back to my childhood in rural malung township.  I used to beam at the sound of the very unique bird.  When we moved back here seven years ago that was one of the things I looked forward to.  Unfortunately I was never blessed with that opportunity.  Until tonight.  Seven long years and finally the sound echoed through my open bathroom window.  I am still smiling that is how thrilled I am!
