SUICIDE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/31

We have seen the soldiers marching

And have heard all the cannons roar

In the distance, rockets launching

There in the middle of this war

To find ourselves thus encompassed

In a battle we cannot win

Where the madness is upon us

And the world’s drowning in chagrin !

 

THE BEST INTENT ( 2018 ) 2018/07/30

The sky grows dim and darkens now

As ocean spray whips cross my brow

The storm clouds gather o’er my head

As lapping waves do seashells spread.

The beach is rippled, cold and wet

Where muddy footprints cannot set

While clams submerge in tidal sands

Betrayed by holes from siphons glands.

Each of us has a tale to tell

And each new thought, a wish to spell

We thank the Lord for His invent

And praise Him for the best intent !

 

 

HAVE NO FEAR ( 2018 ) 2018/07/29

I’ve tried so hard for many years

To bolster courage, stem the tears

Reminding me day after day

That memories don’t fade away.

There’s no way left to heal the burn

When love’s been lost or not returned

Love lingers long and leaves a scar

That shadows one both near and far.

I thank You Lord, and understand

The beauty that is still at hand

It’s free to all that have no fear

And keeps Your Presence ever near !

 

VIRTUOSITY ( 2018 ) 2018/07/28

Oh wayward star where have you been

What kind of world are you lost in

The road is slick, the path is steep

Where is the vision that you seek ?

The night is long and lost in dark

While all about is drear and stark

The mist seeps through the window pane

Engendering a new refrain

Oh Lord, be kind, help us to see

Life’s face of virtuosity !

 

 

PEEK AND SEE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/27

Oh little wren where have you been

I do so want you to come in

But I can’t find the window catch

That let’s me open up the latch

So you and I may nod and greet

Like strangers who meet most discreet.

However I believe that we

Might get along quite famously

If only you and I could share

Some friendly bastion of fresh air

It seems as this will never be

We’re simply bound to peek and see !

 

 

 

CHANGING EVERY DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/07/26

There are so many dreams I’ve had

Some old, some borrowed, some brand new

A few turned out to be quite sad

But there were winners, one or two.

I thank You Lord, for all the luck

And wish my friends much of the same

This effort took most of the pluck

To help save each one in the game.

I know that dreams will never end

Fact is they only fade away

In time, conditions all must blend

While dreams keep changing every day !

 

HELP US GROW ( 2018 ) 2018/07/25

I spy the remnants of my life

Surviving all its stress and strife

I sense the depth of my defense

While reaching out for recompense.

Where are the goals I thought I had

That separate good from the bad,

When will I learn to use my time

In aiding those who dare to climb ?

I find myself caught in the net

That seems to have no exit yet

Please show me, Lord the way to go

To help our lives and values grow !

 

 

TO SAVE A PLACE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/24

You love me Lord, I’m sure of that

Without Your care my world is flat

For very long I was this child

Consumed by disposition mild,

I’d always been a fan robust

Where manners are thought of as must

And try so hard to save a place

Here in my heart for God’s sweet grace !

 

METAMORPHOSIS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/23


I wish, I wish that I could be

A butterfly that flutters free

I’d hop from flower to flower

Sipping nectar by the hour

And spend my days in company

That looks and sounds the same as me.

I know my lifespan cannot last

Thus all I do must happen fast

Since most bug life accelerates

There is no time for friendly dates

And so this beauty that we see

Too soon before one knows shall flee !

 

 

OUR FRIENDS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/22

Here am I wrapt within the tide

Of where all hopes and fears reside

As surging life and death are found

Beneath, above and all around

While time bides with us to the end

And God and angels all befriend !

Oh how I wish that I could be

Those candy canes upon each tree

All shiny and so red and white

Delicious tasting, bite by bite.

While peppermint is full of zest

Let’s put each flavor to the test

I’m sure that chocolate is great

For other celebration dates.

Since Christmas comes but once a year

A time of joy, a time of cheer

I’d like to think that you and I

Will share these pleasures by and by !

 

 

HOW MUCH HE CARES ( 2018 ) 2018/07/20

The Lady in the Harbor speaks for one and all

She stands there in the distance silent and so tall

All copper green and shining like a sentinel

Full of all those secrets and tales she’ll never tell

Lady of deep mystery, tears and joys we’ve shared

While God is watching o’er us, know how much He cares !

 

THE GROWING SOUND ( 2018 ) 2018/07/19

Do you hear the hum of the growing sound

As nature keeps expanding all around

Or feel the subtle tremors that rebound

From energies released in our surround ?

Can you smell the sweetness of this new ground

Where earth’s nutrients appear to abound

Breathing strength into gully, hill and mound

Producing plants and flowers brightly crowned ?

 

TO SAY GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/18

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:23 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There are no words that can help explain

The length and depth of a mother’s pain

Losing a child no matter the age

To an illness or another’s rage !

Through the passage of time, aches may fade

As sadness and loss are all displayed

Seems the worst of all that can be said

Are that those we have loved are now dead,

And with heavy heart and tearful sigh

Were denied the chance to say goodbye !

 

 

ANTICIPATION ( 2018 ) 2018/07/17

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:52 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is this dream in which we’re caught

Wherein our hopes and fears are fraught

A place where passions that we knew

One day at last will follow through

To fold us in God’s circle of

His unabashed enduring love !

 

 

 

HE WON’T DECEIVE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/16

Each evening, stars begin to shine

With brilliant splendor all in line

Their fiery surfaces so clear

Why don’t I feel o’er come by fear ?

If all the stars up in the sky

Decided they might say goodbye

Can you imagine how the mess

Would cause us all such great distress ?

Be not afraid,  as stars increase

Their numbers will not ever cease

One hundred billion born each year

Though half of those will disappear

Have faith in all, try to believe

God is our Truth,  He won’t deceive !

 

SEARCH FOR LOVE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/15

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:11 am
Tags: , , , , ,

We’ll smile a smile or sing a song

Join a chorus or laugh along

Please take a chance, what can you lose

How does one know the path to choose ?

The little child that each once was

Teenagers that will challenge cause,

The old, infirm or oddly gruff

Like those who’ve known a road more rough

These are what life is composed of

They dream of peace and search for love !

 

 

THIRTEENTH MOON ( 2018 ) 2018/07/14

I’ve come closer to the truth in my simple ways

Then performers on a stage who come seeking praise,

I need no intervention, special treatment there

Only what is accepted in primary care.

Since time is on the move, I’d like to catch up soon

Anywhere at all between now and thirteenth moon !

 

SEE EXPLANATION:   13th Moon

LIFE’S DISTRESS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 6:59 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Our aims got tangled and went adrift

The spirit’s drowning and needs a lift

While our dreams have somehow gone astray

Pray this confusion soon melts away.

At the root of all that we believe

And a part of ideas we conceive

May the love of God instill great peace

And from life’s distress grant all release !

 

 

DARLING CHILD ( 2018 ) 2018/07/12

Lord, You’re in charge of wrong and right

The sun by day, the stars by night

The winds that blow, the rains that fall

The light and dark, life overall.

You are the wisdom and the brains

The loss that memory retains

With dreams that we’re all guilty of

When all are young or bold in love.

The changes come, the changes go

Time flashes by the more you know

As God and all the angels smile

Because each is His darling child !

 

 

 

 

DO YOUR WILL ( 2018 ) 2018/07/11

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:53 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is this world outside our door

Filled with guilt, rancor, so much more

A place where sadness multiplies

As lives are trashed before our eyes.

How many more are traumatized

By actions less than civilized ?

Please Lord, accept our gratitude

And in our lives kindness include

Teach us to be the best we know

To do Your will where ere we go !

 

 

 

BRAND NEW START ( 2018 ) 2018/07/10

There are these words that fill my heart

And bring each day a brand new start

With joy and love and common good

Celebrating life as we should.

Oh blessed Lord teach us to find

A better way to help unwind

Confusion and the sadness of

A world that is devoid of love !

 

MAKE A CHOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/09

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 4:26 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a choice that one must make

About the path that each shall take

And of the road that lies ahead

With twists and gaps and bumps instead.

Our trail through life is seldom smoothed

It’s crammed with ruts and slightly grooved

Where we who struggle on alone

Will stumble o’er both rock and stone.

Tis best remembering to swerve

When we approach curve uopn curve

This course we’ve taken is intense

But God’s our Help and our Defense !

 

THIS IS SUCCESS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/08

Have you seen smiles upon each face

Of winners who complete the race

It’s not about their speed or pace

But difficulties they’ve embraced !

 

SHARED EQUITY ( 2018 ) 2018/07/07

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 3:10 am
Tags: , , , , ,

It seems to me that you and I

Are more than simply passers-by

We share our life with God above

And are the result of His love.

So much alike, yet none the same

In manner, gait or lifetime aim

How simple it all seems to be

With values based on equity !

 

 

 

FREEDOM FIRST ( 2018 ) 2018/07/06

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:51 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is a flag flies in the wind

Red, white and blue and golden fringed

And from my window every day

Its mighty emblem is displayed.

Sometimes its folds blow in the breeze

And wave to all the leaf-filled trees

Its symbol shouting freedom first

With such a sympathetic voice !

 

A HUGE GOD BLESS ( 2018 ) 2018/07/05

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

Sometimes I dream ’bout long ago

And all the joys we used to know,

I miss that world so very much

Too sad we couldn’t keep in touch.

Seems now as though I’m in the past

Perhaps one that’s surviving last

Oh how I wish that I might spend

A day or two among my friends.

Well I’m no fool, that is a fact

We cannot bring the old times back

And need to bargain for much less,

Let’s settle for a huge God bless !

 

 

 

CANNOT FORGET ( 2018 ) 2018/07/04

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:38 am
Tags: , , , , ,

Oh to be the hero who lived to see the sun

Early in the morning after the battle’s won

Or to feel the wonder that follows in the morn

Now that all is quiet and hope can be reborn.

Sadly in the shadows, their voices silent now

Those who can’t return or will ever take their bow

Dreaming in a twilight that will not rise nor set

Those men that we’ll remember and cannot forget  !
