SECURE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/30

Now I have dreamt so many scenes

And planned my share of happy dreams

I’ve had my fill of weepy tears

Mongst happenings of years and years

But overall God has been kind

And helped me leave my grief behind

I love You Lord,  of this I’m sure

Whatever comes, I am secure !

 

AND JUSTICE HEED ( 2018 ) 2018/06/29

There is one comment I have heard

About God’s Truth and Holy Word

It is the garment we should wear

The word of saints and those who care.

I love to amble through His Book

We need to take a deeper look

There’s not an issue left behind

It answers all and every kind.

I wish this world could take a break

And finally decision make

That God alone is what we need

To keep our faith and justice heed !

There are some words fall on my ear

So full of joy and hope and cheer

A message from our Lord above

Sharing His true and endless love

Teaching all who express their need

To worship Him and to succeed.

We’re flesh and blood not rock or stone

Bred by the pair, God’s word has shown

To do His work as we were sent

And follow where it is He went

Let’s pray that we are not deceived

And one day our rewards receive !

 

THE BAPTIST ( 2018 ) 2018/06/27

Two thousand years ago or more

When God’s own Son did tred the shore

And angels still had free access

To every spot that earth possessed

There was a man of great repute

Round whom there was a huge dispute.

This humble man of power and fame

Then known as John, his given name

Who thrived on honey and locusts

With leather belt round his waist trussed

O’er his robe of camel hair made,

So sad that he won’t make the grade.

The “Baptist” was how he’d been called

Beheading was his final fall

Remember Herod’s Salome

It was her dance did John away !

 

 

IN TRUTH ( 2018 ) 2018/06/26

In truth, the heart does beat away

Biding its time day after day

And as each day goes whizzing by

The clock will tick and hands will fly

With wings so swift and life so fleet

You’ll feel the spinning on your feet !

Our time, one day will disappear

Along with love and life and fear !

 

 

CLIMB NO MORE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/25

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

I glance across the roofs and chimney rise

To sight each structure reaching for the skies

Obliquely angled to the morning star

In hope of seeing visions ever far.

A stretch of space that still is waiting there

For anyone who dares to climb the stair

At length to find oneself at heaven’s door

Without the need to dream thus climb no more !

Sunshine is the gladness that sweetens every day

Rain is the cleansing mist that washes grief away !

 

TAKE A STAND ( 2018 ) 2018/06/23

There is no way I can explain

The value of the sun or rain

Or birds that span this vast terrain

Like herds that roam life’s wild domain,

Or early dawn and morning dew

Like twilight’s glow before curfew

While oceans, lakes and rivers too

Are full of life that’s out of view.

Too much for us to understand

That exists under God’s command.

We need to learn what has been planned

So we know how to take a stand !

 

HIS BUGLES CALL ( 2018 ) 2018/06/22

” I am a man beyond reproach

And proud to say God is my coach “.

Perhaps these words were said aloud

To Pharoah and his hostile crowd

When Moses stood before the throne

And pled the case for the Lord’s own,

His people and all they possessed

Escaped into the wilderness.

While we who now observe these days

Hold fast remembering God’s ways

The Lord protects us one and all

Until that day His bugles call !

 

 

THE HOUSEWREN ( 2018 ) 2018/06/21

Noisy little housewren, tan, grey and ever small

Early morning serenade is my wake up call

Upon my jaded ears your song doth sweetly fall

Oh tiny messenger, great joys you share with all !

Today is such a lovely day

So full of Spring in every way

My mind is clear, the air has bounce

I need embrace it every ounce !

The buds are blooming everywhere

Their fragrance permeates the air

Oh what a joy our God does bring

To each of us with newborn spring !

Praise God above for only He

Does have the power to set us free

In every storm He is the Port

That we must seek if we are caught.

Without His love we are remiss

His Word brings us eternal bliss

There is this path that does unwind

That only God can help us find !

 

IT’S PARADISE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/18

There is this stairway that I know

I’m not quite sure where it does go

I only know that one day all

Must make that choice their final call

And exit with one thought in mind

It’s Paradise we hope to find !

 

GOD BLESS !

 

 

FATHERS’ DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/17

To all the men we have adored

Our fathers, sons and blessed Lord

The uncles all who spared us space

And grandpapas that kissed each face

Who filled in for each missing dad

In every empty place we had.

This  family of kindly men

Who came to bat, again, again

And never once did let us down

Changing to laughter every frown

Whoever dreamt that we might find

Some other men to be this kind

Hard to accept as truth maybe

Love’s more than just paternity !

 

 

A CHANGING WORLD ( 2018 ) 2018/06/16

The world we know has disappeared

With situations worse than feared

It seems they’ve taken the wrong track

Could be there is no turning back !

Tis not some foolish oversight

This didn’t happen overnight

Just part of changes yet to come

Discard the rest and alter some.

Oh Lord, be patient with this soul

That’s only ever had one goal

To try the best here to be true

To all that we have learned from you !

 

THE APPLE TREE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/15

Oh goodness me, what do I see

An errant kite caught in the tree ?

What shall we do, too high to reach

How can we span this giant breach ?

When I was young I used to climb

These twisted branches all the time

Amazing that I never fell

Yet still have loads of tales to tell.

Though apple trees can’t grow too tall

In fact they seem to be quite small

The limbs all jumbled in a bunch

There’s scarcely room to nibble lunch

I’ll settle for just bread and cheese

Beneath the fragrant apple trees !

 

 

RELOCATION ( 2018 ) 2018/06/13

I acquired a friend quite recently

Who lives just across the room from me

Whereby my pillow I constant see

His acrobatic activity.

He lives in this house made of thick glass

He makes no noise and doesn’t harass

A more perfect mate one could not ask

Although his presence creates small task.

He requires a meal but once a day

Always remains clear out of my way

Daily the water starts to turn gray

Friday’s the day we flush dirt away.

I still have this friend at my address

I pray he moves soon so I can rest  !

 

HIS NAME IS PHELPS, A BEETA FISH

 

 

 

THE FINAL DAY ( 2018 )

This heart of mine it hungers so

Too much to say before we go

The words don’t come so easy now

Caught in the throat, sometimes somehow.

A simple act of nature’s need

Bids all who dare, take care indeed

The changes come and fall away

Too soon we’ll meet that fInal day !

 

 

NEED HELP NOW ( 2018 ) 2018/06/12

I’m just so tired of all this pain

I  shall never be alright again

Seems every joint has its own complaint

What an ugly picture time does paint !

I won’t give in, that is not my style

I’ve plowed through this with a glued-on smile

Guess I’ll start the process right away

Can’t afford to waste another day.

Forgive me Lord,  I’ve forgotten how

To undo this pain and need help now !

 

 

LACK OF MANNERS ( 2018 ) 2018/06/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:41 am

Sometimes I think  I’m lost in space

Or living in a foreign place

Well, certainly no spot I know

No matter where it is I go !

It’s up or down and all around

It’s in and out or underground

Chock full of people with no couth

Millenials and most our youth.

How sad to notice, worse to be

Midst all this incivility !

 

 

 

SECOND CHANCES ( 2018 ) 2018/06/10

Too many words are left unsaid

And rattle round inside our head

Too many schemes have flown away

While ambitions went fast astray.

Where are the dreamers that we knew

With vision bold like me and you,

As peace and joy by love possessed

May fill our lives with hope and zest !

 

THROUGHOUT ETERNITY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/09

I’m only as strong as God allows me to be

And I’m only so wise when He needs me to see

I value those lessons that I’ve ever been taught

And treasure each of the dreams in which I’ve been caught.

I’ve tried quite hard to be at the top of my class

Only to learn there’s a good chance that I’m the last

I thank You dear Lord, You have  remained here with me

I pray we’re together all through eternity !

 

JUST AS I AM ( 2018 ) 2018/06/08

I come to you just as I am

As peaceful as a baby lamb

My heart is true, full of His love

Which rains on me from up above.

Oh blessed Lord accept my plea

There is no place I’d rather be

No other wish that I desire

No other dreams set me afire.

I came to You, it is my choice

I bring my strength, my soul, my voice

For that is what You wish to see

That when I come, I shall be me !

In memory of

All those we loved

Who died that day

So far away

When after all

We still recall

The price they paid

For bringing aid

And peace to those

Who never chose

To start this war

Whatever for !

 

I HAVE HOPES (2018 ) 2018/06/06

I’m trying hard to keep abreast

Of all the import of each test

I beg God’s help and am undone

There’s one last battle to be won

Grant me the power to climb the ropes

True to the dream, for I have hopes !

 

HAVE COURAGE ( 2018 )

Memory is a powerful tool

Not governed by sets of standard rule

A list of items hidden away

To safely keep for another day,

The human mind, a knowledge beyond

May save the secrets of which we’re fond,

A shadow here or a whisper there

Moments in time we chose not to share

These are the treasures that we may find

When we have courage to speak our mind !

The candle burns, its flame is bright

Lord help us to survive the night

It is no matter what we know

Or where it is that we shall go

Perhaps we’ll never meet again

Or share once more remember when !

 

COMRADERY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/04

As I awake to morning’s sound

The dawn’s exploding all around

I hear bees hum and cats meow

The birds all sing while dogs bow-wow.

The noise of traffic fills the air

While beeping horns annoy and blare

The sidewalks soon begin to crowd

Street vendors hawking goods aloud.

Oh what delight each daylight brings,

A joyous heart that hums and sings,

Along with happiness and glee

Contributes to comradery !
