EAGLES FLY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/30

Have you observed how eagles fly

Into the reaches of the sky,

This symbol of our history

Proud emblem of our dignity ?

They move across celestial space

Embued with God’s unflinching grace

We’re told that eagles mate for life

I still can’t tell which is the wife !

Their eyesight is invincible

Two miles away and they can tell

How wonderful that eagles thrive

Please God, let’s keep them all alive !

The time is now, the end appears

We can’t escape, the climax nears

Tis karma for the empty years

We are prepared to face our fears !

Like the ashes from the ember

We have promised to remember

Will it last this way forever

I can hear the answer, never !

There are these fields here in my dream

Where flowers in abundance gleam

Their warm and vibrant colors seem

To mirror sunshine and its beam !

 

NO COWARD IN VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/27

I sailed down mem’ry lane today

Reviewing things that we might say

And thought about it long and hard

I wonder, have you embraced God ?

Since you and I did not agree

On ways each handled destiny

I’d like to think we shared a view

Of all that would be right to do.

Now you’ve been gone for quite awhile

You earned your honor hero style

This is one lesson you’ve taught me

There’s  no coward in victory !

 

IN JESUS’ NAME ( 2018 ) 2018/04/26

Let’s pull the bell and ring the chimes

It’s time to welcome latter times

We’ll sing a hymn and raise each voice

To praise the Lord and make our choice.

The day is come, remember this

Christ was betrayed by but one kiss

Oh Judas, if you could have known

Would you have chosen to stay home ?

Accursed your name forever is

Throughout the world, both ours and His

I am so sad you’ve earned this fame

God save us all in Jesus’ name !

 

SCHEME AND DREAM ( 2018 ) 2018/04/25

Oh Santa Claus, dear Santa Claus

This is the wrong time of the year

However, I need ask because

Too soon the holidays are here.

We get so very bothered now

Just trying to keep up with life

It’s slipt away, I don’t know how

Between our courage and our strife.

I’d like to think that you and I

Perhaps could share the central theme

While knowing one day all shall die

Each needs accept both scheme and dream !

 

ITS OWN REWARD ( 2018 ) 2018/04/24

The signs of life are all around

My heart does quicken with their sound

I feel the pulsing of the beat

It seems to echo down the street.

See there the movement  in and out

Each quiver likened to one shout

Oh gentle dove, I hear your  “coo”

What is it I may do for you ?

We operate in finite ways

This is the vision of our days

Life’s aspects all are in accord

Each day shall bear its own reward !

 

MAKE OR BREAK ( 2018 ) 2018/04/23

A tender thought, a gentle kiss

Remembrance of the moment’s bliss

A kindly word, instant treasure

Memories of constant pleasure

These are results of many dreams

That culminate in joyous scenes.

Our world writhes in much angst and pain

It begs such effort to contain

We need more care to educate

And simple souls to formulate

A pattern of life’s give and take

As we weave through its make or break !

 

THIS IS HIS SHOT ( 2018 ) 2018/04/22

An early light knifes through the dark

The air is still and calmly stark

A silence rises from the ground

One can’t discern a single sound.

Before the morning does begin

There is a chill that settles in

Starting at toes, it makes the trip

To limbs and then to fingertips !

How much longer must all await

To learn the judgement of our fate

In truth we know what we have got

God is the Judge, this is His shot !

 

 

AMONGST THE LIES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/21

When I look up into the sky

So full of creatures that do fly

Where images that catch my eye

May mix with clouds here passing by.

Imagination can’t restore

What it is we are searching for

That special something most adore

A secret gift behind each door.

The world is full of guile and guise

Beneath the sea, above the skies

We live in times of great disguise

Truth is hidden amongst the lies !

 

OPEN ALL OUR EYES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/20

I often think this plan we’ve made

Needs lots of help, a large band-aid

Like an old game we used to play

To whisk our idle hours away.

Remember this now if you please

When you’re on “Broadway” take your ease

You do not have to go to “jail”

Just whiz on by, do not post bail.

However when you pause on GO

Make ready for the final blow

For life is one great big surprise

It’s meant to open all our eyes !

 

SYMPATHY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/19

Unhappiness we cannot bear

Because of sadness we all share,

Please help us Lord to lift our wings

While searching for life’s sweeter things !

 

EACH NIGHT AND DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/18

The dark we’ve seen is bleak and bold

Its purpose is too bare and cold

This world we live in lacks the care

Who opts to choose to reside there ?

Where does one go to seek a life

When all about face nought but strife

It’s not too late there’s still some time

To save us from such godless crime ?

There is one place that we may hide

To keep us free from fears outside,

Tis only God who knows the way

To guide our lives both night and day !

 

 

UNTIL THE END ( 2018 ) 2018/04/17

Before You grew to be quite tall

Sweet Jesus, when You were still small

What kind of life was it You led

When first arising from Your bed ?

We know at twelve You went to Shul

There questioned and reviewed God’s rule

To keep Your faith You did atone

Though in Your trial You stood alone.

Oh Son of God, You did not fail

Your life we shall forever hail

You are our Hero and our Friend

It shall be so until the end !

 

 

 

WHAT IS YOUR GUESS ( 2018 ) 2018/04/16

At times I’m sure I hear the sound

Of children laughing all around

I hear the patter of their feet

In clitter-clatters from the street.

Oh how I wish that I were there

As joy was rising in the air

Remember how it used to be

When hearts were young and love was free ?

Those days are gone, they won’t come back

Our lives today under attack

Why must we suffer such distress

I do not know, what is your guess ?

 

FRESH AIR ( 2018 ) 2018/04/15

This morning we opened the windows wide

To let fresh air swish around inside

The breezes blew all of one accord

In every space where the dust had stored.

While a little voice whispered to me

Aren’t you glad to be young and free

Well, that’s half true, I have to admit

But young’s not how I’d describe the fit !

 

 

WE NEED A HERO ( 2018 ) 2018/04/14

We need a hero, one worth waiting for

To warm up our hearts and open each door

We need memories to keep love alive

Supplying reason for us to survive.

We need a leader to tell us what’s true

To rally our faith for red, white and blue

We need a hero to stand with us now

To give us access to heaven somehow !

 

THAT ALL MIGHT SHARE ( 2018 ) 2018/04/13

If I peeked outside my window blind

What do you suppose that I might find

Maybe some bird there upon a limb

Who silent waits for day to begin ?

Perhaps  just a hint of morning rain

Splashing on my dusty window pane

Or an errant harbinger of spring

Anxious to join in God’s offering ?

Whatever else we find awaits there

Could be a wonder that all might share !

 

CARELESSNESS ( 2018 ) 2018/04/12

Our hearts are full with eyes cried dry

Why must our youth so sadly die ?

How many dreams have withered there

Upon the vine of unkempt care ?

 

THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER ( 2018 ) 2018/04/11

There is a tale through ages told

Of Midas and his touch of gold

But none compares with what we know

Happened to Jesus long ago.

There in a garden on a hill

On one dark night so sad and still

A troop of soldiers with their knives

Approached God’s twelve to seal their lives.

The battle raged among the few

The fighting fierce and overdue

Some ran away while others hid

It was the task Sanhedrin bid.

Two thousand years we’ve known the Word

Though truth is not all we have heard

The story thrives, it grows and grows

With fleeting time God’s blessing glows !

 

 

 

REPATRIATION ( 2018 ) 2018/04/10

Our men who died on foreign shore

Ne’er to be seen forever more

They sacrificed to keep us free

Gave us the gift of liberty

And we shall try to bring them home

From foreign shores ne’er more to roam !

Oh little bird, just you and me

We dream upon our balcony

With you and all your feathers fine

And me and all my words devine

We are a pair, a sight to see

Each night there on that balcony !

God’s wisdom, love and understanding

With hopes beyond our comprehending

Soon the dawn awakes and hears our call

And brings the message that’s meant for all !

HE IS TRULY  RISEN !

Good morning Lord, this is another day

With all new miracles spreading our way

Among the olden dreams we still expect

Like fantasies perchance that we reject

Who knows what favor God will deign to show

Let’s give it time to spread and shed and grow !

 

I SEEK MY DESTINY ( 2018 ) 2018/04/05

I feel so empty deep inside

Like I’ve been on a rocket ride

Perhaps to Venus or to Mars

Out there in space among the stars.

Quite like the stranger  I’ve become

To find myself grown cold and numb

Will someone help explain to me

Where shall I seek my destiny ?

 

 

 

 

RUN OUT OF TIME ( 2018 ) 2018/04/04

Life’s had its ups and had its downs

It’s had its smiles amidst the frowns

Each moment comes, each moment goes

Some days it’s calm, some days it blows.

There is no way that I can tell

If this is heaven or it’s hell

I wish I knew how to define

When I, at last, run out of time !

 

 

HIS PROMISE ( 2018 ) 2018/04/03

We are a generation praying peace will come

Meant for God’s entire world not only but for some

We are here dreaming miracles will light our way

With the arrival of each bright and newer day !

 

WORDS LIVE ON ( 2018 ) 2018/04/02

I’d like to believe that words live on

Long after both you and I have gone

I pray some of those words  we have said

May linger longer within our head

And beg God’s blessing will favor you

With  joy and hope and great passion true !
