The shifting sands of life do blow

Across our vision wide and slow

And changes all the views we see

As we seek out God’s harmony.

The winds of time have come and gone

And left our dreams both pale and wan

Escape, escape, that cannot be

For none but death shall set us free !

The ocean’s full of frothy foam

That gathers under heaven’s dome

It splashes on the sandy shores

Receding into seaside floors

The seagulls exercise their wings

The pigeon struts and coos and sings

The osprey stretches from its perch

Expanding vision in his search !

 

 

A PRECIOUS GIFT ( 2017 ) 2017/05/22

A precious gift we each receive

Which all are anxious to believe

A God who’s there to see us through

In all the deeds that we shall do.

We thus are meant to comprehend

That life continues without end

So we must learn that day by day

There is a role that all will play.

Its parts are varied one by one

The task ahead begs to be done

To see  each other as a friend

And pray for peace until the end !

Sometimes I find I cannot speak

My voice grows thin, my limbs are weak

The spirit wanes, my hope grows dim

All I can do is wait for Him !

 

BLESSING FLOWS ( 2017 ) 2017/05/20

There is this thought that life is sweet

That happiness makes all complete

That beauty pledges joy unbound

And wealth does penury confound.

However there’s much more to bliss

Than finance or sweet passion’s kiss

A heart that feels, a mind that knows

A God  from whom all blessing flows !

 

 

TRUE DICHOTOMY ( 2017 ) 2017/05/19

There is a thought which fills my mind

That life has been both cruel and kind

Tis full of many ups and downs

Replete with smiles and a few frowns.

When all is well, rough storms appear

The weather, it’s not always clear

At times I’m sure we’ve been undone

When all seems cold and not much fun.

But wait a moment look about

The sun has opted to come out

To save us from catastrophe

Life is God’s true dichotomy !

 

WILL I BELONG ? ( 2017 ) 2017/05/18

One man he trod the road to peace

He prayed to God to grant release

And bowed his head unto the ground

Until some solace could be found.

He raised his eyes up to the sky

To see if heaven gave some reply

The wind blew hard, the rain it came

He cried aloud and called God’s name,

Forgive me Lord, for I’m not strong

One thing I ask, will I belong ?
