SHEER INJUSTICE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/30

There was a man upon the road

Who seemed weighed down by heavy load

With spirits low, his shoulders sagged

And as he walked, his feet they dragged.

Another cause, another place

Perhaps another futile race

Tis sad believing all is lost

His faith and honor are the cost.

Oh Lord above, how can this be

The innocents now deemed guilty

Justice is lost, our nation cries

And all are left with compromise !

 

 

DID NOAH KNOW ? ( 2018 ) 2018/09/29

The rain just keeps on pouring down

There’s ne’er a dry spot left in town

The water’s rising at my feet

And flowing wild o’er every street.

The curbs are covered, sidewalks too

What else is there that we can do

Oh, such a mess that’s facing me

I feel as though I’m lost asea.

Please don’t complain about the wet

There’s too much water to forget

I wonder if old Noah knew

That job God gave to him to do ?

One page of life too soon will close

Beyond our fingers and our toes

‘Twill pass again this way no more

Without a tally or a score.

We must accept the burning fact

That there will be no turning back

Despite the depth or max of pain

We shall not pass this way again.

The time has come  to file away

Those memories of yesterday

Let’s place them in our private space

That God and time will ne’er erase !

 

 

HOME OF THE FREE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/27

Our America had its birth you know

Over two hundred forty years ago

Through the thunder, lightning and fire we grew

Into this nation of red, white and blue

In the rockets great glare we won the fight

And created a star that shines so bright.

With welcoming heart and book in her hand

The Lady in Green in the harbor stands

As she holds the torch for all who will see

This home of the brave and land of the free !

I feel a chill that’s in the air

The dampness seems to curl my hair

Tis time to face another day

And push my early fears away.

How marvelous that God does share

Our heavy burden of despair

I am so grateful for this chance

To see beyond each circumstance.

I crave the comfort of His care

And feel His presence everywhere

Oh Blessed Lord, I beg of Thee

Please stay in close proximinty !

Whatever I am, dear Lord, I know

I owe it to You, You’ve made it so

You are the stars and the skies they’re in

With clouds above at Your every whim.

The rainbows we glimpse with color bright

A moon o’erhead on the starlit night

You are the dreams we are waiting for

The hopes and wishes and plans galore

That do fill our hearts and minds with glee

And create Your world this sight to see.

The birds and trees, the flowers that bloom

Assorted odors filling each room

The snow and rain, the wind as it blew

All of our treasures are gifts from You !

 

OUT OF CHAOS, ORDER.  AMEN.

I’ve often thought how very kind

We are as we keep God in mind

How understading and complete

Our lives will be with joy replete !

It seems that life is whizzing by

With days so fast they seem to fly

While times their passage makes us cry

That’s when we must all bid goodbye !

Oh hallelujah, jump for joy

Because we must our faith employ

To keep us on the proper track

And help us get our mojo back.

Believe in truth it paves the way

To richer, finer, better days

Stand up and let your banners fly

You may reach out and toucn the sky !

The sun it rises in the eastern sky

Each day to bid the starlit night goodbye

This ancient pattern must be kept alive

For one without the other can’t survive !

 

GOD’S CHARITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/20

What quiet signals do we send

When we’ve moved so close to the end

What simple gestures do we make

When our whole system’s doomed to break ?

The moment’s here and on its own

Wherein the final action’s known

And as the fateful hour appears

A darkness falls among our peers.

Soon angel wings waft some away

To seek a dawn that’s gone astray

Forgive us Lord for all the sin

And help us save most left within

How fortunate that each may be

Depending on God’s charity !

 

“MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD”

PSALM/ 66:1 / 88:1 / 95:1-2 / 98:4-6 / 100:1-5 / 149:3 / et al.

 

 

UNSELFISH CARE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/19

Our faith in God counts quite a lot

As it’s the only hope we’ve got

That bides with us both night and day

To keep us safe and fears allay.

Too soon the dark moves closer in

As each prepares to lose or win

Remember always God is there

Sharing love and unselfish care !

 

THE STATE OF MAN ( 2018 ) 2018/09/18

Morning shades of drab tans and gray

Are always getting in the way

Of peach and golds to shocking pinks

That welcome most as sunrise sinks.

Oh what I’d give at last to see

The rainbow this world used to be

Where all felt a great need to share

With those who chanced to visit there.

I’ve often wished that I might find

A fairy wand, the magic kind,

To do the job tales tell it can

And much improve the state of man !

 

JUST DREAMING ( 2018 ) 2018/09/17

There was this time when I was young

That many words tripped off my tongue

And as those dreams filled up my mind

The future was what I would find.

I used to wish that I could be

Some nice young man’s true destiny

It ne’er did happen I must add

Perhaps that made me rather sad.

Now as the road is winding down

I keep on smiling, seldom frown

So that my life can be pure bliss

Those dreams I’ve seen end with a kiss!

 

STANDS GUARD ( 2018 ) 2018/09/16

The sun peeks out from behind each cloud

A chorus of birds all sing aloud

While the air about still smells as sweet

The wind has mellowed and is discreet.

What a perfect day just fore the storm

Where life as we know it is quite norm

Let’s carry on as we have before

And pray the Lord stands Guard at our door !

 

 

OUR BURDEN BEAR ( 2018 ) 2018/09/15

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 2:40 am
Tags: , , , , ,

There is this part of me that cries

As tales of sadness doth arise

Or when someone has a great need

To find some peace or to succeed.

We’ll seek a measure to impart

Our loving help for ailing heart

Perhaps one moment to remind

Each other that we should be kind.

There are these special words we’ll keep

That as ye sow thus shall ye reap

Always remember He’ll be there

To help us each our burden bear !

 

 

GOD’S ENTITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/14

I see the rain now tumbling down

Like teardrops rushing to the ground

The Power it accompanies

Is Parent to all plants and trees.

How splendid is the light He brings

To all of this world’s living things

For even mountains rise with time

While valley levels will decline,

How wonderful it is to be

Creations of God’s Entity !

 

FINAL ACCEPTANCE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/13

Time moves on more slowly now

As every minute counts somehow

We savor all as hours pass

Because we know these are the last.

There is no choice we can make

To hope to end or stop the ache

What is to be, ’twill be so

But until then tis status quo !

 

 

 

BRAND NEW START ( 2018 ) 2018/09/12

The air is still, one feels the heat

This life we know faces defeat

The rule of law used as a pawn

Will disappear before too long

The change will come more silently

As we accept reality

Let’s bow our heads, pray fears depart

And beg of God a brand new start !

How little do we know of life

Its loss and gains, its joys and strife

How soon before we all must find

The courage to all fears unwind ?

RELATIVITY ( 2018 )

How often now I chance recall

Those olden times when I was small

And all those relatives I knew

That sheltered me my childhood through.

There’s been so many I could love

To aid me in my dreaming of

A life blest with both good and bad

Mongst all those joys I’ve known and had.

I need to thank each uncle, aunt

For every dream they helped to plant

And all that wisdom they taught me

To live life with integrity !

The wind, it whistles through the trees

Staccato bristling in the breeze

The air is crisp, its clean and clear

Sounds of autumn fall on the ear.

The Ides of March have come and gone

And Labor Day has since moved on

Ere long it will be Halloween

With other days squeezed in between.

All lives serve seasons in their turn

Each with some lesson we need learn

Our victories may have no date

Sometimes we simply have to wait !

See our blest flag at half staff flown

Whence seeds of valor there were grown

To honor heroes who have died

For God and man and nation’s pride !

AMEN.

T’was once upon a time ago

When we were full of life aglow

Before emerged this need to know

With tiny impetus for show

Our lives were truly less confused

Filled with days both calm and diffused

May all that anger be excused

To find ourselves in turn  amused !

The pages of the calendar do fly

Like storm tossed leaves across a windy sky

Days of our lives now swiftly pass us by

Their hours, minutes all whispering goodbye !

 

THE RUNNER ( 2018 ) 2018/09/06

With all her hair piled on her head

Her cheeks so pink, her lips true red

Her running shorts cut at the thigh

With measured trot while passing by.

 

She is a picture of content

Angelic smile from heaven sent

As daily I observe her pass

From my front window’s pane of glass.

 

Her running shoes and steady pace

Are ne’er distracted by each race

She’s happy jogging every street

Controling life while on her feet !

Seems truth keeps getting in the way

Of all the wisdom known today

I can’t accept just how things are

World ignorance has gone too far.

If this is all our lives shall be

I’ll opt for lack of parity

And pray that God who’s Judge of all

Comes to our aid before we fall !

 

NEVER SAY GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/04

There was a place we used to go

When I was small so long ago

A spot straight out of storybooks

Beside a beach with coves and nooks.

A happy home for waves and sand

Of salt and sea aside the land

My childhood summers I recall

They were the very best of all.

With mom and dad, pop, nana too

Those days of summer quickly flew

I learned to swim right off the dock

Clock hands grew wings, tick tock, tick tock.

Oh, how I wish I had a way

To live again that yesterday

Without the need to say goodbye

Real love’s ne’er built upon a lie !
