August Moments

                                                          – Br. Michael, ofm


The summer sun high in the sky

so warm, strong and bright.

The shades of pink, purple and orange

fill the eye with much delight.

The gentle breeze which greets the day

breathing life and hope along the way.

The produce from Mother Earth

filling buckets and pails with great worth.

Bright blue skies stretch on and on

inviting the traveler to new adventures

suddenly a storm is brewing, rains fall

providing renewal; a much-needed quencher.

In these August summer days

amazed by these gifts, we give praise.
