Snow Mo

Peacock Poetry

One day last week I went out to stretch my legs as I like to do and was struck by the very wispy, vocative snow that was falling. In years gone by this weather would have given me a feeling of cabin fever and yet on this day it made me feel poetic and grateful!

Gentle Flurry

The snow shed down like sleepy dust upon the forest crown

Could hear the hungry birds discuss their plans in urgent sounds

The wafer sheets of sugared sleet clung to the paths like wishes

Descending slowly, winter’s beat brought feelings soft-delicious

Old movie tracks brought memories back nostalgic and evoking

This winter weather has the knack for dreamy chilled soul-stroking

In former years the cold I’d cussed, its virtues I’d now found

as snow shed down like sleepy dust upon the forest crown

Early Television Museum Picture Perfect

Gypsy Road Trip

TV adds so much to family happiness.


Early Television Museum is located in Hilliard.

RCA’s first television on the market, TRK-12, was Steve McVoy’s initial early television purchase. He found it on eBay in pieces. Collecting became a passion and soon his basement was filled with old television sets. His wife suggested he find another place to store them.

Once he discovered an available building, he founded the Early Television Foundation in 2000 at Hilliard, Ohio to preserve the history of television sets. At Early Television Museum, progress is shown from the early mechanical systems of the 1920s to the introduction of color television in the 1950s.

There is a large display of early television sets from outside the United States.

However, Steve developed a passion for televisions early in life. He fondly remembers that first set in his parents’ home. The 1953 model Admiral 21-inch set received…

Love Not The World ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Too often our love for God,
grows lackluster and dim . . .
turning cold our desire
to follow after Him.

We lose our focus,
in a world full of greed
till we no longer count
on God to meet our need.

Our eyes start to ache,
after things lustful
till our bodies into sin
eagerly fall and tumble.

Our arrogance and pride,
starts to get in our way
causing us to forget . . .
one day all will pass away.

Too often our love for God,
grows lusterless and dim
but, we who love not the world . . .
will spend eternity with Him!


1 John 2:15-17

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh…

House of Heart

Your eyes are the crescent

of a silver bay that circles my mind

in the deep mystery of sleep

your voice an invocation of bells

that once rung cannot be undone

in dreams I am your dancer

beckoned by your call

a charm on a well cut cuff

a link on a diamond encrusted chain.

For Grace To Grow ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

For grace to grow,
it needs to be fed . . .
our Bibles must be
everyday read.

For without knowledge,
of our Lord and Savior
will never be able to
duplicate His behavior.

For grace to bloom,
it needs to be watered
lest on the straight way
we will surely faltered.

For without understanding,
on our spiritual path
one day we’ll encounter
God’s righteous wrath.

For grace to grow,
our faith we need to nourish
for it to increase . . .
in Jesus it must flourish!


2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ. To him be
glory both now and for ever.

Disconnect to Reconnect

Peacock Poetry

Just before Christmas Andy and I ventured to Decathlon to purchase some highly romantic joint account Christmas gives of an outdoorsy nature! On returning home I was removing the labels from my new garments to find that my glittery new sports bra had a hidden message saying “Disconnect to Reconnect”. I love the fact that Decathlon has gone all deep and meaningful and this phrase resonated so much that, on seeing it again when my sports bra emerged from the wash, I simply had to write about it!

Support Bra

Disconnect to reconnect

Switch off and find your centre

When you choose downtime to respect

You are your own self-mentor

Disconnect to reconnect

The messages can wait now

This is the moment to deflect

Distractions just post-date now

Disconnect to reconnect

The message lies within you

Strength comes to those who introspect

Soul wisdom’s in your sinews

When I found…

A Life Time of Growth ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

A lifetime of growth,
a lifetime of learning
is what it will take . . .
to become discerning.

For it takes insight,
and good judgment too
for the Holy Spirit
to lead and guide you.

A lifetime of lessons,
a lifetime of mistakes
is what it will take . . .
for the truth awake.

For it takes awareness,
deep understanding too . . .
to let God finish
what He began in you.

A lifetime of reshaping,
a lifelong transformation
is our journey on the road
to complete conformation!


Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very thing,
that he which hath begun a good
work in you will perform it until
the day of Jesus Christ:
