Scott Lake Sunrise (A haiku)

Feb 6, 2019

By Rod Crowley

Morning sun so bright;
Lake reflection, plus birds white;
A moments delight.


Feb 4, 2019

By Wendy Highland

Darkened mornings, light unmet
Rippled waters, cool and wet
Moon reflected, shadows high
A gentle neighbor in early sky
Misted surface, welcoming guests
Here to put their stress to rest
Smiles greet and hugs abound
A varied family all around
A better start I couldn’t name
Than swimming with friends in our Lake Cane

Turtles in Lake Cane

Feb 2, 2019

By Christopher J. Stalder 2-1-2019

Periscopes up!
Wow, here they come again from the South,
Quick, dive down and swim to the East,
Whew, that was a close one.
To the surface again, periscopes up,
Look at the Lucky’s lake swimmers go,
They sure are passionate about swimming.
Most every morning they arrive around dawn,
Today’s Saturday and they start later,
Tomorrow all will be peaceful.
Praise God for Sundays!

Safe Harbor

Feb 2, 2019

By Kayleigh Boyce

When the disciples saw that
the spirit of Jesus
was walking on water,
Peter was saved
by our Father.

Peter was brave
that he would be saved
by Jesus’ grace.

The strong waves were
pounding to a grave.
By God’s glory,
Peter was safe.

Ocean Blue

Feb 2, 2019

By Jadyn Hardesty

The Pacific Ocean
Creates quite a commotion.

With all those fish swimming around,
I’m sure they won’t drown.

There are fish of every color
Red, white and blue.

Next time you are down there, say Hi
To my fish friend Drew.

Living Through Living Water

Feb 2, 2019

By Anias Cineus

For I live through his water,
The living water.

I know where water comes from, He
And it lives in me.

Oh the joy I get from Him,
Knowing I can live.

No one can be against me,
He is now for me.

Forever showing His love,
He is God above.

Because God reigns Forever,
there is no other.

God, the way, the truth, the life,
The living water.

I describe him in such ways,
He opens the door,
Living through Living Water.

The Two Fish

Feb 2, 2019

By Allison Largaespada

While a fish was on a swim
He stopped to see his friend Tim.

Tim sang a hymn
While they sat on a coral limb.

They saw a whale,
But did not know him.

Tim hurt a fin,
’cause he fell from the coral rim.

Tim had to leave and say good-bye
To the fish, one last time.

Amazing Turtles

Feb 2, 2019

By Victoria Hansen

As turtles go in the pond
They find a friend with which to bond

I like how their hands are tied
That’s why they never hide

Their look is really good
They might even bite wood.

I like it that way
But who cares what people say?
