Jeanette Telusma Herbert Poems
As I Wait.........
My heart skips with great expectation when I look beyond the hills. I see a lovely rainbow so vibrant, so alive, and so promising. As I close my eyes I somehow feel the texture of it. The rainbow is soft and smooth as grapes.
In This Moment
In this moment of silence I look back and notice how far I've come. It is a moment filled with promises of where I'm headed. As I reflect back my heart of hearts says I must keep looking ahead. It is my past that propels me to move forward. Without it I move not.
What is Greed?
Greed is black in color. It is selfish in every aspect. It is normally one sided in nature. It's glory is only for a moment.
Love, Sweet Love
Love is beautiful, it is like spring dew in May. It is something we should treasure. Love, sweet Love. When you find it hold it tight and never let it go. It is like a plant, it needs water, sunlight and tender care.
Love, The Greatest Gift Of All
Love is the greatest gift of all. We ought to love others as we love ourselves.
To remain steadfast in His love is to stand firm on His words. Meditating on His words brings strength, it propels ones faith to increase.
candy, candy oh how i love you. you are as sweet as god. i'm so sad i can't eat you. you taste very good.
Surrounded In Your Love
How marvelous it is being held in Your arms. I am safe in your strong and warm embrace. My existence is centered in your unfailing love. Your love gives me understanding of who I am in You.
I see you over there looking cautious as a deer. You might have thought you wouldn't get caught.
2013, what has thou for me? To tell you the truth, I waited for your arrival. With great expectation
The Start of a New Day
Right before dawn the atmosphere shifts. My senses heightened with anticipation. I've waited patiently for this day to arrive. The start of a new day.
Life is Rosy
Pink as a rose is life in which I live in. I'm surrounded by beautiful nature. I bring recognition to The Creator of all others. Life would be otherwise had it not been for Him.

As I Wait.........
My heart skips with great expectation when I look beyond the hills.
I see a lovely rainbow so vibrant, so alive, and so promising.
As I close my eyes I somehow feel the texture of it.
The rainbow is soft and smooth as grapes.
The smell is as fresh linen in the month of May.
Oh how I long to lay freely over the rainbow.
I had a dream about it just the other day.
I sat on the dock of a bay, with my feet dangling in the ocean.
Oh how lovely the ocean appeared to me.
As I looked into the water, there it was....
A rainbow appeared, so vibrant, so alive, and so ...
