I pray that I have left my doubts behind

Embracing all, accepting what I find

As life does rise and surge and constant wind

Throughout the channels of each fragile mind.

 

INTENTION ( 2015 ) 2015/09/29

I cannot see, I cannot think

My life is trembling on the brink

The world about is crass and crude

The masses live in manner rude.

This is not what God meant for us

He gave us visions glorious

Our lives reflect His hopes and joys

With echoes that His grace employs !

 

LOVELESS ( 2015 ) 2015/09/28

A flower in a garden that’s treated like a weed

And gathers no attention nor garners any heed

It soaks up what is left or can wither in the brush

Or bides its time in silence with ne’er a need to rush.

A hardy sort, of course, that will weather every storm

And seizes on each moment that bides without a form

While there among lost shadows of times we never dreamt

Lie memories forsaken, abandoned or unkempt !

 

SAFE AND FREE ( 2015 ) 2015/09/27

Do you recall what it was like

When you were but a tiny tyke

And kids would play out in the rain

Barefooted, zooming like a plane ?

Or hopscotch on a city street

With concrete squares beneath your feet,

What’s happened to those days of joy

When children could be girl or boy ?

A game of tag or hide and seek

Just count to ten and do not peek,

Oh how much fun there used to be

When children were kept safe and free !

 

RELEASE ( 2015 ) 2015/09/26

I hear the angel choir as with clarity it rings

The sound of angel voices carries joy upon its wings

That promises to all a new tomorrow full of peace

As from this earthly plane the Lord does grant us our release !

 

GOD’S PARADISE ( 2015 ) 2015/09/25

A little bit of garden around the corner there

A little touch of heaven in early morning air

A highway in the sky for migrating birds to share

A pathway to the stars and a road to get you there.

If thoughts were things

And hearts had wings

Then you and I

Would learn to fly

Into God’s world

With hope unfurled

And spend our days

Singing His praise !

 

LIKE BABEL ( 2015 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:56 am
Tags: , , , ,

Before my eyes the changes grow

And this old world I used to know

Is disappointing, one by one

We’ve lost our values, life’s undone.

I cannot recognize this place

Sometimes I think I’m lost in space

While all about folks speak in tongues

Like Babel, we have climbed the rungs.

Oh would that we might congregate

And from our sins chance separate

Entreat the Father of us all

To grant us grace ere we shall fall !

 

THE CLIMB ( 2015 ) 2015/09/23

Tags: , , , ,

Let us build a road to heaven

We’ll pave it with unselfish deeds

Days of the week are but seven

Not quite enough to meet our needs.

This task may take us forever

I hope we can afford the time

Will we succeed, I’d guess never

God knows, it could be worth the climb !

 

CHANGES ( 2015 ) 2015/09/22

The winds of change surge cross the land

To spread their message where they can

They purge the very air we breathe

With time they may the pain relieve !

 

APOLOGY ( 2015 ) 2015/09/21

There are those times that I regret

The moments that one can’t forget

Remember of all words you say

Some live to speak another day !

 

I WONDER ( 2015 ) 2015/09/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:56 am
Tags: , , , ,

I hear those church bells loud and clear

The peals fall sweetly on the ear

I wonder if the Lord above

Finds this a simple show of love ?

When all the choir voices raise

Their hymns to God in grateful praise

I wonder if their thrilling sound

Will reach His ear while heaven bound ?

 

GONE ( 2015 ) 2015/09/19

A ray of sun breaks through the cloud

My heart cries out and sings aloud

One stolen thought now rears its head

All will be gone when I am dead.

 

ALL REASON ( 2015 ) 2015/09/18

When I look back upon my life

As child, daughter, mother or wife

Those things that I remember best

Are those that have withstood time’s test.

The days of childhood now long gone

Which gave us hope to wish upon

All followed by the maiden schemes

To shape one’s life and seek one’s dreams.

Then on one day to find true love,

The hero she’d been thinking of

Thus starts new life and motherhood

The years fly by as all years should.

Now that it’s part of what has passed

The good, bad, strayed or could not last,

Tis sad to think that nothing’s sure

Our God alone holds reason pure !

 

APPLAUSE ( 2015 ) 2015/09/17

Each morning as my body stirs

My mind awakes, my heart concurs

And here I lie, incumbent still

I’m loathe to rise, I’ve lost my will.

My bed is warm and soft and safe

Protected from the phantom wraith

For God alone is my true cause

And nought but He earns my applause.

The time draws near when we must meet

And I will cower at His feet !

 

THE FINAL CALL ( 2015 ) 2015/09/16

Now Lot was a good kind ambitious man

The nephew of our father Abraham

He chose life in the valley of Jordan

Among the hills within the rivers run.

While there midst all those noxious Sodomites

Lot made his choice to live his days and nights

God sent His angels with a message and

Bade him escape the evil of that land.

Lot’s wife, poor thing, would oh so foolish be

Turning, for the last she would ever see,

The lesson is the Lord does speak to all

Please listen close to hear His final call !

 

HEAVEN’S GIFT ( 2015 ) 2015/09/15

A little bit of heaven has nestled next to me

An angel without wings I’m convinced that he must be

He is a precious package and smells so extra sweet

His daddy’s pride and joy and his mommy’s dearest treat.

Oh tiny babe, with chubby cheeks, hands of doll-like size

You are God’s gift of true love, His blessing in disguise !

 

TOO LATE ( 2015 ) 2015/09/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:54 am

There’s no morning sunshine or even setting sun

When our lives are over and all of this is done

And sadly through the mist as life has passed us by

There’s no time left to think or laugh or wave goodbye !

 

OUR LAST DANCE ( 2015 ) 2015/09/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:08 am
Tags: , , , , ,

At times I’m lost, deep in a trance

And searching for another glance

To prove that life will still advance

To some safe place one takes a stance

I’m wishing that this may enhance

The chances of our last romance !

 

FINAL GOAL ( 2015 ) 2015/09/12

There is a basket that sits on a shelf nearby

Full of ideas that failed as other hopes did die

It holds the remnants of the life that I desired

When time was young and no special talent required.

There in that simple basket rests a thousand schemes

Amongst the fabric, ribbons, needles, plans and dreams

Pieces of wood, paper, cotton, wishes and bows

All of them part of a past that nobody knows.

The basket is silent, it never had a voice

Like those who filled my life yet never made a choice

Each has their secret cache that only they control

And each at last decides what is their final goal !

 

FORGIVENESS ( 2015 ) 2015/09/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:15 am
Tags: , , , ,

There is a core buried deep inside

A place for our tears, our fears to hide

This lonely spot hidden fast away

And older grows with each passing day

We need to learn how to break the spell

To face the world while the story tell

But who are we, who can change our fate

With God’s constant care, pray we’re not late !

 

THE ROSE GARDEN ( 2015 ) 2015/09/10

There is a special place that I do remember well

It’s full of sweet aromas all wonderful to smell

And there among the roses this bit of heaven rests

A garden in life’s jungle of God’s own treasure chests !

Mary, Mary, where have you been

What trouble is it you are in

Is your snow white lamb lost once more

Could he be waiting at the door ?

You need to be so careful please

Protect yourself, face, hands and knees

Perhaps you could learn self-defense

Take care when climbing any fence.

Times used to be you were a child

Quite innocent, both kind and mild

Those days are now forever gone

Keep safe my child, the world moves on !

 

CAUTION ( 2015 ) 2015/09/08

There is this observation that I’ve lately made

About the disposition of all the plans we’ve laid

I try hard imagining what we may expect

There’s no point in struggling if we allow neglect.

Love is the glue binding hearts together

Random acts of kindness are the tether.

 

A LITTLE FAITH ( 2015 ) 2015/09/06

Tags: , , , ,

I wish I were a tiny child who fell asleep each night

With thoughts of angels all about who keep us in their sight

They comfort us with melodies or words that are so sweet

And show us how to accept our success or our defeat.

You’ll see our fears would disappear we’d be so ever calm

As all this love the angels share works like a magic charm

I know some find it hard to trust that angels keep us safe

Believe that God is on your side, oh ye of little faith !

 

PRIVACY ( 2015 ) 2015/09/05

Walls of windows that I now see

From all around are watching me

Windows, windows, they’re everywhere

I sight still more just over there !

Windows spying on me and you

Who can escape from their broad view

Glad we’ve no windows in the sky

Wait, hold on, that is one big lie !

Perhaps I may not have it right

We’re never far from vision’s sight

Oh Lord above protect us from

The nosey watchers and their thumb !

 

DIVERSITY ( 2015 ) 2015/09/04

Have you seen all the shades of blue

That seem to range the ocean through

From azure light to dark blue green

With all the shades that lie between ?

From almost clear close to the shore

Or paler as you dip your oar

Reflecting rays of strong sunlight

Or midnight dark under starlight ?

Such a happy phenomenon

I sure would like to dwell upon

What all of this can mean to me,

I think  God loves diversity !
