HALLOWEEN ( 2017 ) 2017/10/31

Oh goblins and spooks, skeletons and ghosts

These are the spirits who play today’s hosts

Pirates, buccaneers are part of the game

All masquerading to act in the name.

As All Hallows Eve the world knows it best

With bonfires and masks the Celts showed their zest,

Marking the end of summertime’s lush

Embracing the dark of cold, snow and slush !

 

MULTICOLORED WORLD ( 2017 )

I wish that I could tell you why

The grass is green and  blue’s the sky,

That clouds are white but sometimes gray

Which indicates a rainy day.

I really do not have a clue

If bluebirds all are colored blue

Or if a robin’s breast is red

What color could it be instead ?

I’d like to think there is a plan

That’s meant to help me understand

Why  colors are of such import

Among the many things we’re taught.

There are issues labeled  black and white

Does that mean everything’s alright ?

Imagine life as  colorless,

This world of ours would be a mess !

There is a God, I know it’s true

I’d really like to share with you

However that is not my choice

Each must decide with their own voice.

I cannot but supply the facts

Depends on you how one reacts

There is a book, you know which one

It’s older than the Sugar Plum.

This book was writ on parchment roll

And wound up in clay jars of scroll

Hidden away two thousand years

Written by scores of ancient seers.

It is the world’s most famous book

Perhaps one day, you’ll take a look !

 

JUST MELT AWAY ( 2017 ) 2017/10/29

The day grows short as twilight nears

Increasing all impending fears

The darkness moves in closer now

Casting its shadow cross the brow

Welcome to night time one and all

We’re making ready for the call

That detours each along the way

Before our lives just melt away !

I sight the sunrise o’er the hill

It’s vision sends my heart a thrill

How wonderful it is to see

A world wrapt in God’s symmetry.

I hear the rustle of the leaves

They whisper in the morning breeze

What is it they all preach to me

Regarding God’s infinity ?

I feel the impact of His power

Increasing with each passing hour

The mark He leaves, indelible

Because He is infallible !

 

LIFE’S EVENTS ( 2017 ) 2017/10/27

Our world is full of so many things

Like flightless birds and squirrels with wings

Plants that eat insects and fish that fly

All a gift from our God up on high.

A pattern of perfect He has planned

Covering oceans, skies and all land

Aren’t we lucky He’s so intense

And Master of all of life’s events !

 

 

 

 

DAYS ARE NUMBERED ( 2017 ) 2017/10/26

And so it is each day begins

We are all equal, no one wins

The wheels, they turn and turn again

But who’ll survive remember when ?

The moment comes then fades away

In all of this, who gets to stay

As life continues its short climb

Then faces change time after time ?

Though no one wins in this relay

Existence spans without delay

The days of man all numbered are

And no one ever gets too far !

 

HE’S A WHIZ ( 2017 ) 2017/10/25

The morn awakes and  yawns aloud

The sky is clear, there’s ne’er a cloud

A breeze o’erhead begins to blow

We’re in the midst of autumn’s show.

Her colors changing every day

Glow brighter still along the way

How wonderful God’s palette is

Creating pigments, He’s a whiz !

Christopher Robin and Tigger too

These are the friends of Winnie-the-Pooh

There in the woods where they all do go

That’s where it happens, best as I know.

In a tree’s hollow under a beech

See Piglet run and hear the Owl screech

I’d love to be a bump on the log

As Eeyore and Roo go for a jog.

Many a child’s been given a thrill

Hearing their tales and many more will !

 

PLEASE READ THE ORIGINAL  “TEDDY BEAR” BY A. A. MILNE

A WONDERFUL POEM OF  102  LINES !   YOU’LL LOVE IT  !!.

 

 

TOO MUCH TO ASK ( 2017 ) 2017/10/23

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:00 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I often wonder where I’m at

And if the world outside is flat

I get so tired of searching for

A place to put my head in store !

I really need another chance

To take a stab at true romance

And give life’s wheel a healthy spin

To learn what stage of age I’m in.

Oh, Mother Nature have you heard

My prayers for help, my every word

It can’t be too extreme a task

I beg it’s not too much to ask !

There is no way I understand

How tempers get so out of hand

I’ve never seen such anger shown

From persons both known and unknown

What is there that can rile one up

Enough to overflow the cup ?

We’ve seen the foolishness of some

Who cannot seem to overcome

This sad behavior they have used

On those they’ve bullied or abused

Perhaps through faith and time alone

They’ll seek God’s wisdom to atone !

 

THE FINAL ACT ( 2017 ) 2017/10/21

I find that life at best is strange

Though I’m not opting for a change

Nor am I saying that it’s bad

What choices are there to be had ?

It seems to me, we have no say

As lives evolve from day to day

Tis time that we accept the fact

It’s God who pens the final act !

 

“JESUS LOVES ME ” ( 2017 ) 2017/10/20

There is this hymn I used to hear

Sung ever softly on my ear

When I was young and oh, so small

I loved that tune the best of all.

It was my night time beddie-bye

The one mom sang if I did cry

I  taught my children that same song

When they were young we’d sing along.

We did so quite religiously

In joy and pleasure frequently !

 

* see lyrics “JESUS LOVES ME”

 

STANDUP TALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/19

Sometimes the dream you’re waiting for

Lies just outside your own front door

Sometimes success that you pursue

Is something you already knew.

Sometimes your life becomes intense

If you’ve no taste for self defense

And when you fumble or you fall

Remember please to standup tall !

 

 

FAMILY TREE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/18

In a garden long, long ago

In a special place I don’t know

Lived someone related to me

Long, long ago in history.

Perhaps one day we’ll get to meet

On a corner of heaven’s street

And if we can’t I will not mind

There will be others I shall find

For we are one huge family

And a part of that selfsame tree !

 

 

DOOMED TO FALL ( 2017 )

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:44 am

I hear the noise and feel your pain

It’s like we are at war again

We need your help, please if you can

From every woman and each man.

Reach out, reach out to help us start

To teach our children to impart

True common sense and caring ways

Into the sharing of their days.

Let all begin to try their best

To breach the wall, to pass the test

Give God the chance to teach us all

For without Him, we’re doomed to fall !

 

PRAISE GOD THE KING ( 2017 ) 2017/10/16

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:19 am

It doesn’t make much sense to me

To claim some bogus victory

Or just pretend that who you are

Is so important by much far

Who cares if one’s the simpler sort

If complications count for nought.

I’d rather be a bird on wing

Who joins his species in birdsing

Than stand upon a mighty stage

With those who are the latest rage.

They curry favor all life long

By singing out song after song,

Instead of praising God the King

Who has created everything !

 

 

 

BY STYLE OR DRESS ( 2017 ) 2017/10/15

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:59 am
Tags: , , , , ,

We search and search most everywhere

To seek some peace we all may share

There is no safety chaos brings

More joy is found in circus rings.

The labyrinth of life goes on

According to the airs we don

For when we’re done each must confess

One won’t be judged by style or dress !

Oh daddy dear what can you say

To get me through this scary day

And help me face my wildest fears

With the vast wisdom of your years ?

What shall I do now I am grown

To find my way back to my home

With you not there to shelter me

From  stress that life shares frequently ?

Oh daddy dear I miss you so

Too great a loss, why did you go

I pray we’ll meet again one day

In God’s sweet land of far away !

 

 

CURTAIN CALL ( 2017 ) 2017/10/13

What does one seek after the midnight hour

Neath the veil of darkness and loss of power

When the stilled air deserts its resting place

And we bid farewell to eternal grace

May the love of God now protect us all

From the final cut of the curtain call !

 

 

YOU WIN ( 2017 ) 2017/10/12

I thank you Lord, day after day

Your word does guide me on my way

I’m sure that You refill my cup

And when I fall You pick me up.

You’ve been my Friend a long, long time

Since I could stand or walk or climb

I never would have made it through

Without the help I’ve had from You.

I promise You, dear Lord, today

Small matter what the world may say

There are no doubts about who’s Boss

In any game You win the toss !

 

 

WILL WARS CEASE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/11

I’ve often wondered why it’s so

That sadness follows where we go

And life is never thought complete

Without these stories of defeat

Or why we rally to the cause

Of infidels and unjust wars

And so the cycle carries on

When will all wars cease and be gone ?

 

 

LIGHT YOUR STAR ( 2017 ) 2017/10/10

We know super heroes are not real

Still they do possess this great appeal

To boys and girls either young or old

Loving  the action both brash and bold.

Make-believe can be a lot of fun

Perhaps not a dish for everyone

Let’s make room for reality here

To help us keep pace through every year.

Pretend is not a part of the truth

With which one hopes to imbue our youth

Learning early who you really are

Is the surest way to light your star !

 

 

 

 

HUGE THANK YOU ( 2017 ) 2017/10/09

Oh Christopher, brave Christopher how did you spend your life

Across the seas and oceans wide amidst chaos and strife

You stumbled into a new world upon your wooden ship

What a surprise it was to learn this was no Asia trip !

And thus it was so long ago this land of ours was found

When the Spanish came to conquer and rule all on the ground

Now that is how it did begin in fourteen-ninety-two

Today we owe Columbus all our love and huge thank you !

 

 

ELEGY FOR DENO ( 2017 ) 2017/10/08

I hear the echoes through the trees

Life’s shadows move with each new breeze

Old voices carry loud and clear

And fall upon the listening ear.

The book has closed the story ends

And bids farewell to all our friends

To leave one nothing more to say

Ere we are forced to look away.

But let us go in peace and calm

Believing one must do no harm

Remembering those days of yore

And all of paradise before !

 

 

SADNESS SHOWS ( 2017 )

Seems every morning sadness shows

Around the world the bad news flows

The madness strikes it grows and grows

From tippy-top to tiny-toes !

 

I’M NINE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/07

Each day I wake, I thank the Lord

Because I find I’m still onboard

I’m not too sure if that’s a gift,

Until life’s haze begins to lift

I check to see if I’m all there

My fingers, toes, my face and hair

Both arms and legs are working fine

On a ten scale, I’d guess I’m nine !

 

 

WHEN SUNSHINE SMILES ( 2017 ) 2017/10/06

I’m not a fan of winter chill

A runny nose or feeling ill

Fact is I’d like to outlaw snow

In any place I choose to go.

But I don’t wish to be extreme

Or shatter others and their dream

Though I don’t ski, I know it’s fun

I have seen hundreds on a run.

Perhaps I’ll winter in the house

Snuggled up like a hearthside mouse

I pray that I’ll keep warm till spring

When sunshine smiles on everything !
