By Chris Bunton Created perfect,From the dust of the Earth. Then, moved to the Garden,the Paradise of God. Created for a purpose,a call to tend and to keep. To garden, Paradise,To protect, the peaceful place of God. To walk with God,in the cool of the evening. Powers beyond us today,buried within us today. Total controlContinue reading “Adam”

We have several stray cats that live in the neighborhood. Most of them are wild. You cannot get near them or pet them. They sneak up and get food, or water, or to be nosy, but not much else. I’ve learned over the years in my spiritual walk that one of the places that humansContinue reading “The Two Kitties”
Sunshine through the window,lifts my heart when I’m low.It makes me smile. There’s a happiness that comes;and through my heart it runs,then sits a while.
This world screams at you. “Your birth insults me, and I will break you. Feel time slip away, And your loves destroyed.” “I never stop. Relentless Time. Hounding your mind. Slaving to eat.” “Crushing you. Twisting you. Molding you.” “Until You Are.” “Dead” (Diminished Hexaverse) (Photograph of a swamp at Rend Lake in Southern Illinois)
The Lake;sparkling vastlike a river of crystalthrough a green golden dream. The air is warm,and the breeze is cool.The music plays,and the kids run. The birds;those lovely birdsour friends, singingsweet to the beatof Life. Zoom to the lake,perfectly warm, butcool enough.Dragonflies swoop,where the fish jump. It’s hard to stand;in the wake of the boats.Waves poundingContinue reading “The Lake”

Southern Illinois has many great hiking trails that will suit your needs, no matter what you are seeking. If you want short trails,Continue reading “Hiking in Southern Illinois”
I sit on a hill overlooking an old strip cut lake, and I puke. I am sick at the sight of houses filling the ground of what used to be forest. I am sick at the thought of a wood torn down; to make way for men of means. I am sick of seeing acresContinue reading “Sub-Division”
