Poetry - Life and Family

Updated on May 13, 2018

Circles of Influence

Like ripples in a pool

Momentum moving on

Each acting on each other

Pushing the others on

Toward the next horizon

With its steady highs and lows

Powerless to fight the current

Onward, then, it flows.

Each action a reaction.

Each choice, a chance to stand.

But give in to your Maker

Who'll lead you by the hand.

He'll help you be an angel,

His hands upon this earth.

Affecting all His children

With knowledge of their worth.

(c) 2000 Lurlynn L. Potter

The Window of a Soul

When looking through a window -- the window of a soul --

The beauty is exquisite and more precious than gold.

Each pattern is so different; intricate, divine.

To know you is to love you. What honor has been mine!

(c) 1995 Lurlynn L. Potter


The Snowflake

Dancing upon a celestial wire,

Of which others are unaware,

She glitters and glows, sparkling with light

As she glides gracefully through the air.

It's crystal clear that her purity

Was carefully formed up above.

Wisely she catches all beams of light

To bounce each one back gleaming with love.

She'll melt under warmth, cling to a brow,

Search 'til her destiny she's won.

She perfectly fulfills each journey -

Although there really be only "one."

(c) 1981 Lurlynn L. Potter

Song - Build up a Bank

Build up a bank of happy memories

A bank of God's goodness too,

And fill that bank with love.

Deposits every day.

Be thankful in a whole new way;

Your blessings be mindful of.

And those hard times, when they come

Quickly withdraw memory "one."

And thankful, let the Spirit fill your heart!

And you will gain a new perspective;

Stress will leave you, and you'll find

The Spirit lets you know things with your heart!

Build up a bank of happy memories,

A bank of God's goodness too,

And fill that bank with love.

Deposits every day;

Be thankful in a whole new way;

Your blessings be mindful of.

(c) 1992 Lurlynn L. Potter
