Chosen Words

Thursday, April 11, 2013 by D.J. HAUSMAN-HILL Special to The Press in Opinion

Their exuberance at first light

brings joy to my heart

They are so hopeful of the coming day

Delight speaks through

their chirps and trills

How would it be if we all,

like nature, woke to each day

with such enthusiasm?

Would not our world be a different place?

A place not unlike Eden

A utopia where joy fills our walk

and hope abounds

Just as the robin sings

praises to the Creator

May we emulate their delight

enough to proclaim

"Thank You

At last...

Spring is here!"

a nickname for my sister

Now a historic storm

The "perfect storm"

Brought about by climate change

Millions of our citizens affected....

by storm surge or flooding

Loss of electrical power



Some lost their lives

Others lost everything...

except relationships

Community comes together at such times

...times of crisis


that is what enables us to move on...

Even on an island...a sandy island

we are not alone

And God is with us...
