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 !

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

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 !
