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 !

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 !

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 !
