Autumn

signori -2

Loriann Signor

Upon the face of newer times
the elaborate losing sway
settled in to ocher tones
diminishing  harshness fray.

The failing of ancient thoughts
Quiet days taking hold
The journey paused in fog-shroud paths
just happily growing old.

Now is Autumn in solemn gaze
no slowness in despair
to let the Lord above me now
ponder my affair

tumult

signori sun

Loriann Signori

Away the rushing water sends,
Beckoned limits crushing ends.
Tumult stirs me in my sleep,
Drowning, falling, abysmal deep.
For just a moment if thoughts surmise,
Sudden hope shall draw my eyes.
Off on horizon’s razor line,
Penetrating light of eternal shine
Comforting call surrounds in peace
As God Himself instills release.

baby blue

bitterness follows
grey over blue
when wonder turns to fear
horizon blurrs
blending
sky to earth.
I know it is hard
seeing inside
feeling numb –
praying where are You
to watch over me?
but you know, baby blue, you know.
you know your walk
is not so easy.
it is frayed-
unraveled at times.
but you smile and your eyes
sparkle and love is imparted
on my misty eyes.
a smile casts away demons
because it is given by God
who you always really know,
is there.

still azure

the kindness I seek
Is deep within your eyes.
a gentle smile so warm
like still azure skies.
i reach out to feel
the strength in your hand
confiding outward trust
I cannot understand.
the faith that is gained
in a vessel hard-pressed
promises love eternal
in surreal breaths of rest.
