The Sky is Crying – Texas Flood

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Today we celebrate rain and wind and convection and hurricanes.
Hurricane Harvey is causing way too much anxiety for the East Texas coast.

We are praying for the south Texas coast, especially Corpus Christi and all the surrounding cities.
We are praying for Kingsville and Brownsville, Texas, and Matamoros, Mexico, too.

Stevie Ray Vaughan said it best, “The sky is crying.”
But this weekend, we are having ourselves a genuine Texas Flood.

Thank you for praying for Houston, too.

GOD BLESS TEXAS!

Peace!

Hunker down!

Daddy Whipped Cream

its infallible.

Melody and lyrics a sledge-hammer –
impassible.
Try to push him over the edge?
He ain’t irascible.

This is who I am, right now

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

The butcher
the baker
a candlestick maker
A shoulder to cry on
The one who pays
attention to you

A dessert maker experimenting
on our ice cream sundaes
with m&ms
over spoonfuls
of peanut butter Continue reading

Shipwrecked

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Round and round around we went
surveying every inch of the square,

straight through the jagged alleyways
behind the crooked mall,

high above we stood in the clouds of misty white
watching people stroll the darkness of the streets. Continue reading
