HAPPENSTANCE ( 2015 ) 2015/05/31

In those quiet moments before the dawn awakes

Wherein enlightened thought our passion gently breaks

As we note the seasons and tally up the score

We need seek the reasons that lives must matter more.

Such feelings as we sense shall give us all a pause

For who has faith to carry on without a cause

In spite of legends, promises or holy text

We may not meet again in this life or the next !

The air is cool, the smell is sweet

The sound of children from the street

Now rises on the morning breeze

Like waves upon the stormy seas.

The silence reigns just now and then

As shreiking laughter once again

Cuts through the air this peaceful day

With joyous noise while children play !

There is a celebration here

Tis true release from all my fear

Fear is suspect in all to come

God is my hope thus I fear none !

Where is the dream of yesterday

Where has it gone it’s flown away,

It wasted by the road’s dead end

And lingered there without a friend.

The flowers withered on the vine

The fruit has shriveled in the clime

The world just seems so out of sorts

Our ships are moored in foreign ports

Hard work is there that none will share

I think there’s no one left to care !

 

TOO GRAND ( 2015 ) 2015/05/27

Bright skies of blue with clouds of white

God’s perfect picture of delight

From azure blue to deep sea green

Painted waters lie in between

While flocks of birds fly overhead,

With sheer emotion left unsaid

True this must be a gift received

That’s far too grand to be believed

I sense the world writhes in defeat

As danger lurks on every street

What else is there for us to fear

The day of judgement drawing near ?

Tis now that we must all align

Our actions into God’s design

We’ll use His words to seek the way

And trace His footsteps every day !

 

INTERFERE ( 2015 ) 2015/05/25

The battlefield’s an ugly place,

Both fear and courage on each face

As terrors of one’s lifetime wait

To learn how each shall meet his fate.

While war is part of history

No generation has been free

And battle scars won’t disappear

Until our Lord does interfere !

It is not peace we’re searching for

Our peace won’t come before God’s war

What we need now is Joshua

To sound the trumpets with his corps !

 

LOSE MY WAY ( 2015 ) 2015/05/23

An angel rapped upon my door

And asked what I was waiting for

I answered with a mild restraint,

“To use my words to pictures paint

And beg God’s help to loose my heart

That I may in His world take part

Tis not a simple task,” said I,

“But what I wish ere I should die,

I think about this every day

And do not wish to lose my way,

I am no longer young you see

My faith means everything to me !”

The atheists say we are fools

There is no God nor any rules

Their evidence seems very hard

But as for me I’ll opt for God !

The Christmas stars are in the sky

They last from August through July

They twinkle bright and travel round

Their numbers grow and do abound

I find my curiousity

Increases with all that I see.

If only I were oh so smart

Instead of thinking with my heart

Perhaps I could then understand

How this old world was built so grand !

 

GOD’S VICTORY ( 2015 ) 2015/05/20

It seems to me the world about

Is filled with anger and with doubt,

Each day begins with a clean slate

As we move nearer to our fate.

I’m grateful every time I rise

For all the beauty of His skies

And all the wisdom that is free

To understand God’s charity.

I must believe He loves us all

The young, the old, the great, the small

And willingly accept that He

Is rooting for our victory !

You can barely hear, the murmur’s so soft

As birds begin stirring in nests aloft

Be still and listen when decibels grow

As the lights of the dawn begin their show.

These tiny fledglings do make lots of noise

With their bobbing heads all hungry and poised

The sound increases as the morning glows

Preventing some from enjoying a doze.

Ah but now it seems all are quite content

Hear the silence speak, no complaints to vent !

Good morning world I’d like to say

I wish you all a bonnie day

With hugs and kisses in between

Lots of love and sweet whipping cream.

A bit of chocolate everywhere

The smell of taffy in the air

But what I think I’d like the most

A walk in sand along the coast,

Remembering those days long gone

Recalling life’s lost halcyon !

 

HIT PAUSE ( 2015 ) 2015/05/17

A little time to breathe the air

A little more just being there

A tiny space to think aloud

Like time to float upon a cloud

A moment with no purpose bound

And minutes where silence is found !

 

LEARN TO SHARE ( 2015 ) 2015/05/16

When I was young and meek and mild

I knew the manners of a child

But as I grew and aged a bit

My ways improved I learned to fit.

It seems to me that age must share

Abilities of love and care

Yet caution all to patience earn

As one by one each takes a turn !

Oh how I wish that I could be

A riv’let running to the sea

That constant trickles down the drain

The remnants of the night time rain.

A drip, drip, drip upon the wall

Now gathers fast at evenfall

And makes its downward way complete

Runoffs from gully, stream and street.

The volume growing as it flows

Cross valleys, fields and tall hedgerows

Until at last its task is done

And we have breached the river’s run !

I found my love when but a teen

I knew great joy at seventeen

I thought the world was lean and keen

When I had turned just seventeen.

The times were tough and war was mean

When I was only seventeen

My heart got broken neat and clean

And there I was but seventeen.

All through those years that passed unseen

Life disappeared at seventeen

I wish my time had been pristine

Like once it was at seventeen

I’d sacrifice the years between

Again to be just seventeen !

My advice to you my darling friend

Is take time to dream before the end

Do it now ere you have fully grown

It curries magic you have not known

Supplying cushions to fall upon

As life turns into a marathon !

There is a bit of keen advice that I would give you all

That as you travel through your life try to avoid the toll

Of those so full of avarice who wish to be a friend

Take care because their interest sometimes is but pretend !

Oh power that rules, attend us please

Our old world is trembling on its knees

The mountains rumble the waters surge

All seem to be begging for a purge,

The woodlands burn with a heat intense

Where is the force of our own defense ?

This world in chaos appears to be

What’s left to us of civility

Open your eyes it is not too late

To challenge the demons at the gate !

 

STORMY WEATHER ( 2015 ) 2015/05/10

I had a dream the other night

And woke from slumber with a fright

The late air whined it seemed to say

A storm is due some time today.

The wind rushed through the limbs of trees

And shuddered quickly in the breeze

The darkened clouds did hesitate

While all about were in a state

There in the gloom one ray of light

Did pierce the sky and caught my sight,

Perhaps the storm may change its mind

Now wouldn’t that be super fine ?

We’re at the end of our two hundred year story

And live in the shadow of our former glory

We’ve traveled the path with our destiny calling

And tred on the way where the mighty are falling.

We’ve lost all our values and our honor is gone

The next battle ahead can now make us a pawn !

 

ANGELS ( 2015 ) 2015/05/08

If wishes had wings I’d rise and fly

Across the wilderness of the sky

To meet with the angels in the air

And follow them home to tarry there.

Now angels appear to be quite strong

I am guessing that their lives are long,

Perhaps thousands of years more or less

A great mystery I must confess.

If I have to wait too long to see

I pray they’ll keep their watch over me !

 

GREET THE DAY ( 2015 ) 2015/05/07

Another morning has begun

Tis grand to feel the warming sun

Its fingers slipping through the blind

Leaving the dark of night behind.

The lacy patterns on the wall

Keep spreading till they reach the hall

I can no longer laze away

Its time to rise and greet the day !

 

OUR VICTORY ( 2015 ) 2015/05/06

Some might think that I am foolish

Or even that I’ve lost my mind

I am not known to be churlish

Not spiteful, silly or unkind.

I have no wish to tarry on

Or try to take up too much space

Please note, I am no paragon

Quite long ago I learned my place.

Our lives should be more simplified

With cause for no great mystery

We live by faith and faith implies

Our honor is our victory !

Oh little birds where have you been

We’ve missed your chirps and cheeky spin

It seems as though it’s been too long

Since you’ve been here to sing your song.

The winter’s gone, so glad of that

Can’t wait to hear C sharp or flat

Oh little birds please fail us not

Without your sounds what have we got ?

 

HEAVEN’S ANGELS ( 2015 ) 2015/05/04

Our lady in the harbor with torch held oh so high

She waves as strangers greet her while they are passing by

She is a precious omen that opens wide the door

To bid each one a welcome who comes here searching for

A little bit of heaven, the chance to be one’s own

Reach out to touch the angels who call this land their home !
