ECHOES OF ETERNITY ( 2018 ) 2018/05/31

It little matters what we say

Moment to moment, day to day

Our time is come, we can’t forget

As one by one, our hearts regret.

The past we’ve known, that it may be

Sweet echoes of eternity,

As sad farewell must turn away

Our hope that begs a new today !

 

 

TO SWEET VICTORY ( 2018 ) 2018/05/30

We’ve seen the shadows on the wall

Heard echoes of the clarion’s call

The battle signals rang out clear

To fall at last on hollowed ear.

There’s no mistake upon the ground

Or impact of each magic sound

While trumpets blow and blare away

This message for the latter days

A change is coming, wait and see

To wing the way to victory !

 

 

 

THEY FOUGHT AND DIED ( 2018 ) 2018/05/28

There is this call that I now hear

It happens every time each year

The bells peal out and my heart cries

Takes all my strength to face goodbyes !

There is no way I can convey

The sadness that I feel this day

So many wars for all those boys

Who early left their childhood toys

To wear that uniform each chose

Before their lives came to a close.

So be it blue or white or green

Brown, khaki, tan or in between

Whatever color works for you

They fought and died, red, white and blue !

THIS IN MEMORIAM  1776 – 2018

 

 

 

BETRAY OUR DESTINY ( 2018 )

To love our God and country too

Those are the things I chose to do.

To furnish aid to those in need

Encourage others to succeed

Grant help to many who deserve

To earn a chance to give and serve.

It’s true our nation must be saved

If we are to escape this grave

Of shattered dreams, distorted facts,

Repeated crimes and heartless acts.

Please rescue us and keep us free

Lest we betray our destiny !

 

 

 

 

SHARING LOVE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/27

The smallest tot on Mommy’s knee

Now laughs and smiles each day with me

And through those hands plays  “I can see”

While sharing love quite easily !

 

 

CRIMSON PLUMES ( 2018 ) 2018/05/26

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:17 am

In the distant fields, row on row

Where all the stalwart poppies grow

God’s crimson plumes wave in the breeze

Their masses reaching to the trees

Across the hills and o’er the plains

With multitudes of mounting aims,

Who’s heard the call both loud and clear

And knows the day of judgement’s near ?

 

ALWAYS ROOM ( 2018 ) 2018/05/25

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:58 am

There is one thing I’ve learned before

There’s always room for just one more

It doesn’t matter where you’re from

Or of the distance you have come.

It’s of no consequence at all

If you are skinny, fat or tall

It matters not how old you are

Or if you are a rising star.

How wonderful that it would be

For all to share equality

Remembering that adage old

There’s always room for one more soul !

 

FILL THE VOID ( 2018 ) 2018/05/24

I’ve shared my bit of tragedy

As all the emptiness I see

Became a vital part of me

Impacting my philosophy.

The strength I knew that I possessed

Has helped me triumph over stress

I’ve tried to learn to find success

And fill each space with happiness !

 

THE LAST ACT ( 2018 ) 2018/05/23

The stage is set, the curtain waits

With ticket takers at each gate

The script’s been writ,  face-paint applied

While tension grows from deep inside.

Time for the truth to come on out

With neither whimper nor a shout

The simple facts are really best

Let’s leave the judgement to the rest !

 

 

FIRST SURPRISE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/22

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:57 am

Long time ago, another day

In a distant land far away

The sun rose brightly in the east

And shone upon a bridal feast.

 

That place was Cana we now know

Where Mary and her son did go

There marriage was a sacred thing

With feasting, vows and wedding ring.

 

Whole families and friends all went

To celebrate each huge event

But too soon all the wine ran dry

Before the party bid goodbye

When Jesus did that first surprise

It sure did open all their  eyes !

 

 

SEEK FULFILLMENT ( 2018 ) 2018/05/21

There is a lesson I have learned

That all misfortune is not earned

And oftentimes is ill advised

By those who have been compromised.

Tis now the time for all to rise

And beg the  Power of the skies

To ease the pain and teach us ways

To seek fulfillment in our days !

 

 

ROSE OF SHARON ( 2018 ) 2018/05/20

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:11 am
Tags: , , , , , , ,

A rose once in a garden grew

Nurtured by love and morning dew

Its flower so sweet beyond compare

Which God and all the angels shared

A beauty rare enough indeed

To comfort all who have the need.

The Rose of Sharon was the name

And from the fields that’s where He came

A beauty which reflects today

In all we know, in every way

The strength and wisdom that survives

It’s how we know God’s still alive !

 

TODAY IS HERE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/19

The mist of morn is so discreet

It waddles in on soft cat feet

And sidles up without a peep

While much of life is still asleep,

All cuddled up wrapt in a quilt

That covers one up to the hilt

And close the eyes for one more snore

Before today bursts through the door !

 

TEACH SOME MANNERS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:46 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The dampness seeps inside the glass

And seems to weep along the pane

A labyrinth of life’s morass

Attacking all, again, again.

Oh would that we might rule the path

And currents that control the Main

With the power like our God hath

To teach some manners to the rain !

 

HERE COMES THE MORN ( 2018 ) 2018/05/17

I miss the peace of morning sounds

The tender tug that calm expounds

The smell of coffee in the air

It seems to be most everywhere

The gentle hum as life revives

Before the world becomes alive

The quiet lull before the dawn

That signals all, here comes the morn !

 

LIFE’S ENDER ( 2018 ) 2018/05/16

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:37 am

I need to see their faces old, the ones I can remember

I’ve journeyed long and journeyed far from May through late December

And all I want is to be sure that we do not surrender

What little time that we have left before we breach life’s ender !

 

HEAVEN’S DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/05/15

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:35 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The world is dying all around

I sense a shaking of the ground

What is this that’s now happening

God’s prophecies awakening ?

Has time run out and left us here

To ruminate or shed a tear ?

What does this mean to all of us

And will it cause a giant fuss ?

I’m not sure of the sound it brings

Sometimes I think it’s angel’s wings

Perhaps that what I’m wishing for

Some path to open heaven’s door !

 

THE SETTING SUN ( 2018 ) 2018/05/14

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:12 am
Tags: , , , , ,

My heart thanks God for each new day

My mind seeks out a nobler way

I’ve tried to find some answers here

A firmer faith, a path that’s clear

While time grows wings and seems to fly

The hours add up and multiply

Before we know it, we are done

And all accept the setting sun !

 

THIS HOROSCOPE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:18 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The moon must be up in the sky

I have this feeling I could cry

But there is nothing wrong with me

Not anything that I could see ?

Perhaps the stars got in my eyes

While I was busy watching skies

Or maybe Venus went astray

In retrograde and lost her way.

This horoscope will have to keep

I think it’s time to go to sleep !

 

 

CARPET OF FALLEN BLOOMS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/12

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:48 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sweet cherry blossoms filled the air

They fluttered frantic with despair

And twirled above the barren ground

As all their blooms were settling down.

Their color faded in the mist

Where raindrops and warm breezes kissed

Their crumbled blossoms ruled the street

Where silken ashes cushioned feet !

 

 

TRUE FAITH IN GOD ( 2018 ) 2018/05/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:46 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I’d like to think that when I’m gone

This world about will carry on

Promote all hope or let’s pretend

That peace resides around the bend.

Of course we know this is not so

No matter where it is we go !

A kindly thought, a gentle word

Not either one would be absurd

Man and angel share one accord

True faith in God, trust in the Lord !

 

 

 

A BIT OF STONE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/10

What parent would their obligation waive

To save their child from complications grave ?

An admonition we’ve known from the start

About what God holds sacred in His heart,

This father’s son asking for bits of bread

Would give his child a bit of stone instead ?

 

 

 

OH ABSALOM ( 2018 ) 2018/05/09

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:31 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Sometimes the world is full of gloom

Its sadness darkens every room

The seasons change, they come and go

From springtime’s warmth to winter’s snow.

Days roll on by with no account

Midst tears and sighs in great amount

And justice finds it needs a place

To challenge evil’s false embrace.

What was has been and is no more

Once lost will never be restored

The saddest words that one can say

Oh Absalom, you’ve gone astray !

 

 

WE’VE BARELY TIME ( 2018 ) 2018/05/08

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:10 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Too soon the morning sounds arrive

Informing all we’re still alive

Outside a bird begins to cheep

To certify we’re not asleep.

I hear the sound of running feet

A dog is barking in the street

Mid tires traversing on the road

As trucks pass bearing heavy load.

The stress and strain commence once more

Ere we have stepped outside the door

I can’t believe today’s begun

We’ve barely time to greet the sun !

 

 

WHAT USED TO BE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:43 am
Tags: , , , , ,

The night was dark and cool and clear

The air around was free of fear

As I recall it used to be

When life was happy and carefree.

We laughed and cried and fussed a lot

About what’s fair and what was not

Though not one person would declare

That their own treatment was unfair !

We lived and dreamed our lives away

Believing each, from day to day

This was our homeland, small or large

Where bullies never were in charge !

 

A BLAST ( 2018 ) 2018/05/06

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:37 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I’d like to be a bug somewhere

That’s born to life without a care

I’d settle for a cricket too

But they have other jobs to do.

A beetle or a frog is fine

Or caterpillar on a vine,

I’m guessing that I’d choose the last

A butterfly might be a blast !

 

OUR FATHER ( 2018 ) 2018/05/05

This is the first I can recall

I find my back against the wall

It all seems strange with no debrief

There is scant time to seek relief.

We flounder in life’s deep morass

Without the aid of skill or class

I wonder what the future brings

Along with normal happenings.

Shall we survive until the end

In need of courage and a friend

Let’s say the prayer we all know well

And to the Lord our wishes tell !

 

 

 

REFLECTIONS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/04

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:02 am
Tags: , , , , ,

I have thought myself alone

On the precipice of fate

With the hope I can atone

As it’s never out of date.

I have dreamt for many years

That our dreams are not quite real

But reflections of our fears

And the passions that we feel !
