A LONG JOURNEY ( 2016 ) 2016/11/30

We found ourselves in wilderness

Two thousand years ago

And knew the road to our success

Did need God’s love to grow !

I’m grateful God is always there

For without Him whom else would care

There’s so much sadness everywhere

At times it seems too hard to bear !

And so it is with joy we sing

God blessing life and everything

This wonderous gift that we have found

That keeps our feet upon the ground

And helps us rise above our pain

To share our love and try again,

Enjoy our hope and dreams restore

Tomorrow waits our faith galore !

 

OVERDRESS ( 2016 ) 2016/11/27

Today is gray it’s dark and cold

The winds that blow are swift and bold

There is a chill that fills the air

Keep searching for the warmth somewhere.

There is no cozy place to stay

No comfy soft warm hideaway

We’ll have to tough it out I guess

By wearing wool and overdress !

 

RELEASE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/26

There are those days when I recall

The summers, winter, spring and fall

Of years now past and gone astray

Like thoughts and things I’ve stored away.

Let caution be the path I choose

I may not win but fear to lose

But share will I the pleasures found

And cherish all treasures unbound.

May God grant all eternal peace

To  find at last our souls release !

 

 

 

 

DANGER ( 2016 ) 2016/11/25

Now I have seen the mighty mountain and heard the restless sea

There is no greater image that my old heart may bring to me

For I am not a stranger adrift upon some foreign shore

But a native born who sees trouble that’s coming soon and more.

I pray that we acknowledge that our future holds great danger

We forgot how times are changed ere we welcomed in the stranger

And so it is that now we are prepared as we must need be

To keep our homeland safe and from all its enemies be free !

 

 

THE TURKEY ( 2016 ) 2016/11/23

The turkey is the oddest bird

It’s gobbling noise is too absurd

It struts and prances all around

But never truly leaves the ground

Except at night to roost in trees

To keep themselves safe from most thieves.

They feed on acorns, seeds and such

Small animals, a few not much

By nature, they are not so sweet

Although we’re keen to taste their meat

Their wings are tiny though they’re tall

The turkey breast is best of all !

 

 

COPING ( 2016 )

Not long ago I ventured out

To learn what life was all about

I took a turn and soon got lost

My error bore too great a cost !

Since then I’ve kept myself aware

Word of the day to all, beware

Your silence is much keener heard

With kindness shown and gentle word

So be alert remember this

All love is captive to a kiss !

 

PROCESS ( 2016 ) 2016/11/22

A force now rises in the east

To calm the anger of the beast

The winds of change will power divest

And merit fortune in its quest

The time has come, the hour is near

To charm the crowd and vanquish fear !

 

 

ANGEL VOICES ( 2016 ) 2016/11/21

Can you hear the angels sing

Praising God who is their King

Voices heard above the roar,

Springtime rain or Hypnos snore

All those sounds to please the Lord

All the love we can afford ?

 

TO THE FUTURE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/20

There is a task that we all must face

If we’re to rescue the human race

For what are we if not mortal men

Who’ve fallen down and shall rise again ?

There is a tall price that must be paid

For all of the plans that we have made

Twill take men of a greater calling

To ease the harm that’s now befalling.

This nation awaits in its dire need

For plans of our future to succeed !

 

WINDING STAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/11/19

Some place there is a winding stair

Where does it go I do not know

I’m only sure it will be there

When ’tis the time for each to go !

But what direction shall one take

For stairs descend or rise above

You have a choice, make no mistake

The coward’s safety or God’s love  !

 

 

 

SOMEHOW ( 2016 ) 2016/11/18

Tags: , , , , ,

As  I’ve walked down the busy streets

Before the dusk its evening greets

And heard the sounds the darkness shares

With all the world and its vast cares

I’m glad that God is listening now

Perhaps ’twill come out right somehow !

 

 

REPAIR ( 2016 ) 2016/11/17

My heart is torn and needs repair

Where e’er I look I sight despair

Oh gracious Lord, please bring us peace

And from this pain grant our release !

So now my Lord, the curtain falls

It’s gently slipping down the walls

The silence flowing all around

Leaves ne’er a whisper to be found.

The light is dim it barely shows

Its shadows all seem to have froze

Tis time for us to catch our sleep

And conjure dreams that we may keep !

 

ONE MOTHER ( 2016 ) 2016/11/15

I think that I would rather be

An angel on the Christmas tree

All sparkling in its angel dust

Shining so bright as stardust must,

Or eagle from her aerie nest

Judging behavior of the best

Perhaps a swan upon the lake

Whose paddling does not water break

While even hens upon a clutch

Will warn you loudly, do not touch

I’m just a mother trying hard

To teach her children follow God !

Laughter breeds so many joyous things

Your eyes will smile as your heart grows wings

The air feels clean and the dawn glows bright

Because we’ve survived the darkest night.

We have risen to the heights of hope

While rapidly learning how to cope

Our dreams remain a moment away

They are the fruits for another day !

 

 

A LONG WALK ( 2016 ) 2016/11/13

A man he traveled on a road, it was to Damascus

His name was Saul when he began, though now he’s Paul to us

While on that journey long ago there was a lesson learned

You can’t take credit for good deeds that you have not yet earned !

 

 

TO HEROES ( 2016 ) 2016/11/12

Now once again the caissons roll

The chapel bells do chime and toll

Each body rests within the grave

As love of God the soul may save !

 

 

PEARL HARBOR ( 1941 – 2016 ) 2016/11/11

What we forget not to recall

Those days that spelled defeat for all

When planes and bombs did fill the air

And all we’d left was hope and prayer !

 

 

 

 

REMAINING FEW ( 2016 ) 2016/11/10

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:36 am

For all of the joy that the holidays bring

There is this bit reminding us of one thing

That through all the pleasures each season may bear

Sometimes there’s a reason that we daren’t share.

The heart’s just a muscle that rises and falls

Yet treasures the moment and often recalls

Those times that were real, much before used to be

When some had to leave for a new destiny

Wherever they’ve gone, we have bid them adieu

As we must carry on, the remaining few !

 

FREEDOM’S RING ( 2016 ) 2016/11/08

The air is charged with thoughts intense

What shall we do in our defense

The days are numbered who can say

Who will the hero be today ?

Will they be travelling on a horse

Or sailing on a separate course

And will this choice affect our lives

Of course it must one does surmise ?

Let’s pray that God is on our side

Along life’s road He’ll be our guide

We need to take our country back

Stay safe from harm and all attack !

 

 

 

 

DEPARTMENT STORE ( 2016 )

Our world is full of so much stuff

You’d think by now we’d have enough

Where does it come from, do you know

We sure have reaped more than we sow.

There’s boxes filled up to the brim

With bits and pieces, lots of trim

Plus all of that and so much more

That threatens to burst through the door.

I’d like to think that as I age

There’s room for more upon the stage

Like hope and dreams and love galore

For all in God’s department store !

 

 

 

A CHOICE ( 2016 ) 2016/11/07

I wish, I wish I had the words

To tell the crowd how to become

A connosieur of the absurd

Or prophecy of dumb and numb.

This world grows smaller day by day

And madness has now grown a voice

I wish that I could run away

Or help dear God to find a choice !

 

ENDLESS TASK ( 2016 ) 2016/11/06

Now that Santa has become quite “passe”

And is no longer hero of our day

What shall we do ’bout Thursday’s roast turkey

With all the trimmings we can wish to see ?

Another thought soon crosses o’er my mind

How will Charlie’s gang, that great pumpkin find ?

So many questions I have yet to ask

Seems my life has become an endless task !

 

 

 

FULLNESS ( 2016 ) 2016/11/05

There is a hole deep down inside

You try your darnedest to deny

It doesn’t matter where you hide

The emptiness just will not die !

With time one learns to get along

Because that’s what our Lord does teach

He fills our lives with love and song

And helps us to our fullness reach !

 

THE HARVEST ( 2016 ) 2016/11/04

The autumn colors, what a sight

Ranging in shades from dark to light

Such joy the fall’s chill air does bring

That culminates in harvesting,

Like gourds and pumpkin on the vine

Great bales of hay all in a line,

The sheep whose wool is thickening

And will be sheared in early spring

Oh would that we must thank our God

Though times be plenteous or hard !

Seems all that is left of the life I once knew

Are old photographs and a mem’ry or two !
