IT’S TRUE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/30

In truth, we learn that life does fly

And  soon we all must wave goodbye

We turn a corner, close a door

What is it all are waiting for ?

We cannot say, we do not know

Life’s  mysteries  won’t tell or show !


GOD’S RAINBOW COLORS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/29

Blossoms in the garden, how shall we bear their loss

Soon the winds of autumn will all their petals toss

How often in past summers and the springtimes too

That flowers smiled and waved most of each daytime through.

All the fragile magic and all the fragrant smells

Folded in those tiny buds resting in their shells

What would this world look like without the shades of green

Plus God’s rainbow colors and everything between ?



JUST AND FAIR ( 2017 ) 2017/09/28

The night outside is dark and cold

I am so tired and far too old

Oh how I wish that I could sleep

But we have promises to keep

For in this world of let’s pretend

A few may care but more must mend.


Take a deep breath for a short while

Lift up your spirit, try a smile

Remember that the Lord is there

Depend on Him, He’s just and fair !





REMEMBER TO PRAY ( 2017 ) 2017/09/27

I’d like to believe all of my prayers

Will be reviewed by His crew upstairs

I keep on talking an awful lot

Cause talk and truth are all that I’ve got.

Perhaps I’ll write a letter or two

Where shall I send it,  I have no clue

Can I be sure that my every word

Will reach God’s ear or even be heard ?

I must continue trying each day

To speak my heart,  remember to pray !





OUR HERO ( 2017 ) 2017/09/26

I am so glad the world’s not flat

We sure have had enough of that

And super heroes do not fly

We’ve put an end to that big lie.

Our noses will no longer spread

Spite of the fibs that we have said

We have been told so many things

Of spells and charms and magic rings.

The time has come to play it straight

And say a prayer we’re not too late

The truest hero we all know

Our Lord above, He loves us so !


MY DESTINY ( 2017 ) 2017/09/25

I’m glad to say with no regret

That I’ve not met my Saviour yet

There still is time left to erase

Those hidden failures that I face.

Oh Lord, I try so hard each day

To follow closely in Your way

But I have faults as most folks do

And other quirks I need work through.

Well I’ll keep trying best I can

And with Your help may understand

That You will keep an eye on me

Helping to seek my destiny !



KINGDOM COME ( 2017 ) 2017/09/24

My thoughts return to years ago

To someone that I used to know

A someone who looks just like me

The person that I used to be.

I have survived the time between

Can you imagine all I’ve seen ?

Seems God and me, we have a pact

I’m training for the final act

He greets each as their turn is done

This Lord of our true Kingdom come!



TO OPT FOR FAITH ( 2017 ) 2017/09/23

The Lord can see right to the core

He knows what each is searching for

He follows as we wend our way

Through every moment of the day

I’d like to think He gave us choice

To opt for faith and raise our voice

In praise of those powers that be

Who’ll guide us to eternity !


HEAVEN FULL OF BLISS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/22

I often wonder as I peer into the sky

Where do all the clouds go after they’re passing by

Do they have a mission or a schedule to keep

What happens up above when I am fast asleep ?

I try to stay alert and do not want to miss

A single moment’s joy of heaven full of bliss !


FRIENDSHIP ( 2017 ) 2017/09/21

I wish, I wish that I could be

The candles on your birthday cake

The star upon your Christmas tree

Or mushrooms on your juicy steak.

I’d like to be your one true friend

A buddy who will understand

Or lifetime pal until the end

I would be there to help you stand.

Now friendship is a special treat

A precious gift that we may share

It softens many blows we meet

And gives us cause to smile and care !




ENOUGH ! ( 2017 ) 2017/09/20

It seems to me the world’s in need

So many symptoms we should heed

The weatherman is lately there

Warning folks that one must take care.

The wind, the rain, the lightning too

Are shouting that there’s much to do

In my long life I can’t recall

A year in which we’ve had it all.

Across the universe and space

Old Mother Nature’s in our face

We should mind all her huff and puff

While as for me, I’ve had enough !

Every day starts out the same

I’m getting tired of this game

I do believe I’d like some change

Although I think it could feel strange.

I’ve been a creature of routine

My life is calm, sweetly serene

And I don’t know if I’d survive

An increase in excess or drive.

Perhaps I’d better rethink this

And settle for my boring bliss !


MY HEART RECALLS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/18

I  left my heart behind so long ago

On a sandy beach where it  doesn’t snow

Where the wind is brash and the waves ride high

And the cliffs above try to  reach the sky.

Now my heart still yearns for that touching sight

That I’ve dreamt about too many a night

In that foreign land far across the seas

Where our boys lie in graves beneath the trees.

I pray to God that we do not forget

War is the devil that we all have met !


NOTHING IS HARD ( 2017 ) 2017/09/17

I’ve this feeling I’m in a vise

And pretty sure it’s not my size

While this faint tightness in my chest

Accompanies all of the rest,

Speaks words to me I can’t ignore

What else is there life has in store ?

The time is now to make amends

Reach out to all including friends

Hold on to faith, remember God

For with His help, nothing is hard !



WE ARE TROUBLED ( 2017 ) 2017/09/16

The world we know is in a spin

Look at the trouble we are in

We’ve lost our way and are off course

We need employ another source.

How shall we live, what can we do

We must now ask for help from You

Don’t leave us here it’s far too late

Disaster’s waiting at the gate.

Oh merciful and loving God

The road ahead is rough and hard

Desert us not we are distraught

Help us to live the way You’ve taught !

Oh little man,where have you gone

What costume is it you have on

Which role is this you’re playing now

While on life’s stage to take a bow ?

I’ve seen the many hats you wear

I’d like to help you get to there

Unless I know where that place is

I’m helpless cause  I am no whiz !

Oh little man, when you are grown

And roots of dreams have been well sown

Please tell me what I need to do

To help you make your wish come true !




HEED HIS CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/09/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:51 am

I wish that I had nerves of steel

So every pinprick that I feel

Would never bring a single ache

Into my life or cause heartbreak.

I always thought that I was strong

But I know now how I was wrong

And find myself in quite a mess

I’m so confused,  I must confess.

Seems all the stuff I did believe

Was part of my own self-deceive

When will I learn to standup tall

Keep faith with God and heed His call ?


FIX IT OVERNIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/09/13

Oh Superman, what shall I do

I need some one who’s just like you

A hero brave will not suffice

He must be wise and extra nice.

Besides his strength, he must be kind

With all the courage one can find

Cause this is a tremendous task

There is a favor I must ask !

I am no longer young but old

Not of much use or so I’m told

This world we live in  has a crack

We want to have our freedom back

There’s no one left to make it right

Could you please fix it overnight ?



THE CRICKET ( 2017 ) 2017/09/12

There’s a stranger in my parlor

How did he get inside

I thought I heard his noisy chirp

Wherever does he hide ?

Well,  never mind the sound he makes

I need to find him how,

The miracle of all of this

He’s in my house right now !

I guess I’ll learn to live with him

What else is there to do

Perhaps one day he’ll say farewell

Goodbye and toodle-loo !

Oh foul device and evil  intent

Of those whose motive to harm was meant

With all of our tears that have been spent

God with purpose our lives reinvent !


BUGLE HORN ( 2017 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:15 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a sound I love to hear

A bugle call upon my ear

Its brassy tone does thrill my heart

And chills my spine right from the start

My hair all seems to stand on end

As tones and notes begin to blend.

What started as a hunting horn

Before the age of bronze was born

Evolved into what we now know

The bugle calls to troops they blow !


A THOUSAND TEARS ( 2017 ) 2017/09/10

Who has not shed a thousand tears

To rid themselves of earthly fears

And all of this to no avail

As man’s inclined to often fail.

Now what are we but impotent

In this our world of God’s invent

Let’s settle in remembering

That He determines everything !


CREATOR OF ETERNITY ( 2017 ) 2017/09/09

Dear Lord above, I’d like to know

When day is done where do You go

Is there one place that You’re fond of

Some hideaway or spot You love ?

So glorious it must be grand

A product of His own blest  hand,

How wonderful that God is The

Creator of  Eternity !

It seems to me this world is strange

From ocean’s edge to mountain range

With valleys lower than the sea

And plains as far as eyes can see.

A land of forests, hills with ruins

Lakes, rivers, streams and desert dunes

A coastline full of coves and bays

With swamps and marshes in a maze,

Mass spectacles of God’s delights

This place of dreams and hope incites

Such passion in her people here

They shall not dare to live in  fear !




SECURITY ( 2017 ) 2017/09/07

Oh tiny chick safe in the nest

Your mama knows what is the best

As she secures you all around

While perking up at each new sound

Then darting off to find a feast

To feed her brood before release,

Oh little bird how will you fare

When your mama’s no longer there ?




IN HIS CARE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/06

Oh little child so full of dreams

Life isn’t always as it seems

The door of hope is not quite free

It may not open up  for thee.

Just wait awhile and softly pray

That God above will save each day

For it is He who blesses all

And answers when the children call.

Be not afraid He’ll keep you there

Close to His heart and in His care !


CRISP BREEZE ( 2017 ) 2017/09/05

I see the willows in the wind

They flutter wildly to and fro

The leaves and branches slightly thinned

With lacy arms all swaying so.

The wind does whip through all the trees

That bend and twist before the gale

And feel the crispness of the breeze

As it fast fills each waiting sail !


TO BIDE WITH GOD ( 2017 ) 2017/09/04

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:52 am

There is a place just above Nod

Where everyone has faith in God,

The children and the angels too

Are in accord with me and you

They say their prayers and read God’s book

And good deeds glow where e’er you look.

Oh how I wish that I could be

A member of that colony

Perhaps if I try very hard

One day I too may bide with God !
