NATURE’S FURY ( 2017 ) 2017/12/13

The earth it rumbles, the mountain quakes

The land around it shivers and shakes

The air is silent and seems intense

With no place left for one’s own defense.

The bells ring out, hear the warnings toll

The world now plays a dangerous role

While the lives of those who mill about

Are filled with fear and tremble with doubt

Pray nature’s fury spares all our lives

With God’s help His compassion survives !

 

 

KIND AND TRUE ( 2017 ) 2017/12/12

There was a place that I loved best

Besides the sea, at water’s edge

So many hours that I spent there

All types of weather, foul or fair

I learned back then to patient be

Accept God’s will and wait to see.

Well that was then and this is now

I have survived life’s storms somehow

There’s this advice I offer you

To thine ownself  be kind and true !

The wind, it whips around the bend

How long before the winter’s end

The snow, the sleet, the icy road

That soon becomes a heavy load

But when the elements do flee

The spring arrives to comfort me.

I’d like to greet another day

With fragrant blossoms on the way

There is a line I can’t ignore

I’ve heard so many times before

If winter comes, it’s true you’ll find

That spring is never far behind !

 

 

 

ELUSIVE REST ( 2017 ) 2017/12/10

The snow is clinging to the bough

The weather’s turning cold and how

The winter chill cuts to the bone

I think I’d rather stay at  home.

I’d like to be inside for now

So I may  keep warmed up somehow

And pick a spot close to the fire

Therein imagine sweet desire

Where in the end life does attest

Our souls do seek elusive rest !

 

SIMPLE PLEASURE ( 2017 ) 2017/12/09

The simplest pleasures that I will miss

Are an unexpected sticky kiss,

Tiny fingers pulling at my hair

And  peek-a-boos meant for two to share.

There is so much joy small children bring

Into each day of just plain living

Their hopes and fears or their smiles and tears

Gifting our lives with surprise and cheers !

 

 

 

 

NOT OUR FAULT ( 2017 ) 2017/12/08

Seems that our lives are changing day by day

While fleeting years keep getting in the way

They appear to have a mission or two

Since we are pressed for time, what shall we do ?

As the days get shorter and time speeds by

Too much to remember, harder to try

All of our efforts will keep us awake

Along with those chances we often take.

There’s a point in time when we’ll have to halt

Please understand this, it won’t be our fault !

 

 

EVERYTHING ( 2017 ) 2017/12/07

There is a song lives in my heart

I don’t know how it got its start

But I adore its every word

The sweetest sounds I’ve ever heard.

It fills my mind and brings me peace

And from life’s sadness grants release

It raises hopes where none survived

And helps laughter to be revived.

How wonderful the Lord loves all

Who stand in line to wait His call

He is the Master and the King

Son of the God of everything !
